Doesn't look like there's a discussion thread for PS4, unless I'm blind. Let's discuss PS4, then, in this thread.

Recent news: according to Kotaku, Gamestop is no longer taking preorders for the system. Hope you got your preorder in!

Battle Garegga is on PS4. That's literally all you ever need.

PS4 exclusives are better than XBOX. Why? I can't play PS4 exclusives on a PC. Almost all XBOX exclusives are on PC. Really makes it quite simple. Only Xbox series I miss is Gears of War.

The PS4 section of my shelf is literally all exclusives (some former like Yakuza 0 which got ported to PC) and Dark Souls trilogy.

I have played through some non-exclusives like Ys VIII and Valkyria Chronicles 4 but I sold them when I was done.

ya so far we've only seen midgar stuff in the remake, both now and before CC2 was taken off the project, stuff that is like that first hour or so of the game. if its gotten any further we havent seen it. in the original game you can get out of midgar in under 5 hours, though that section of the game is supposed to be expanded. i dont want it to be too linear like 13, just corridors.. if there is no world map i think we old fans will be very unhappy.. but 15 had one so i think we'll get something similar to that. you travel a sort of overworld and then you'll load into towns. i'll be fine with that.

i had seen before that the first "chapter" might even go all the way to the city of the ancients.. which... if you were going to go episodic... kind of would be a point to do that.... but im very sad its episodic, id much rather just wait for the full thing regardless of how long that is. just wait til 2022 and give us the whole thing for the 25th anniversary.

as heavy also said im never going to want rpgs to be this way... sequels are fine, and welcomed when they are good of course..

but i mean legend of heroes does this ? and does it well.. but thats not really the same thing.... maybe because its ff7 and we know its one game and was always one game before. it doesnt need redesigning or added content. make it look like this, orchestral soundtrack, translation fixes. done. thankfully the pc version can be modded to that these days with the high res background mods.

Yep, that's what I'm going to be doing. F this episodic nonsense. Games aren't TV shows. I'll wait for that 25th anniversary special edition on PS5. yes

One of my Facebook friends made a good point on the FF7 remake. The way that trailer looks, if the whole game, every cut scene is going to be that quality it is going to take a very long time to make. We already know of the over-worked game developers in America, but I can imagine Japan doesn't do that.

I bet it's much worse in Japan, but they just shut up and take it over there. It's kinda sad. That said, Square is one of the worst run developers in the world. It's a train wreck over there. Poor planning and poor management of the main team is the reason all their big budget games take 50 years to make.

ya if anything the workers are more abused there. its an honor to slave for the company even to the point of getting ill from it. square has sadly fallen so far, the management is terrible, the teams fragmented too much, letting Nomura run anything is an indication of how bad it is. hes a designer, and hes great at it, but they keep him too busy now.

im gonna play it, even if its episodic, but i dont like it, its ff7, its gonna happen i wont be able to not.

Well, therein lies my dirty little secret...

I never beat FF7, but I know the story, just never finished the actual game due to pretty much getting stuck at a part and never going back to it. So with that horrible burden I carry with me, I think I can wait for the definitive or ultimate/complete edition before diving back into it.

What annoys me is the "OMG FF7 IS OVERRATED" people. While that statement may be true for some, it's impact was very important for the RPG/Gaming industry.

Dear God man... speed through the ps4 or pc version with the mods or limit break cheats at least..

but i cant wait another 10 years or 6 or whatever it is for some definitive edition. its all come down to this, ever since they showed us that ps3 tech demo this has been building. i took off work the day of advent childrens release to go find one, and i balled.. my wife at the time was like why are you so upset and im like you could never understand what this means. i cant watch it to this day and not tear up at the end. crisis core was the same. even knowing how it ends, i fought those bastards upwards of 40 minutes.. you cant have him dammit.. and i cried some more. FF7 sits among the holy trinity of all time video games for me, there is no way i can not play it right away

i cant imagine they would be able to make FFX-3 work, i hope they never do that. and FFX is my #2 ff and my #4 game of all time, so i love it more than most.

I keep forgetting the PS4 version of FF7 has rewind and cheat codes built within the fabric of the game. That may make me more inclined to try and speed thru it and I do have it on the PS4 too, got it on sale one day last year.

They could do it. But they're gay so they won't.

Just watched Jim Sterling's reaction to the FF7 remake trailer and he brought up a good point. We are dealing with latter day Square-Enix now, not 90's Squaresoft anymore. Latter day Square-Enix is a company who's management and employees are up in shambles compared to 90's day Squaresoft, which was more focused and controlled and dare I say competent? This is why games like The Quiet Man are allowed to be published, because the right hand of latter day Square-Enix has no freakin' clue what the left hand is doing.
