1st Class Edition (original thread)

Was hoping for something ... better, as they've previous released Play Arts Kai figures with Cloud on his bike (although I do regret selling my Cloud on Fenrir). That and it's a soft bundle. They're packing three items together. Should have been an epic Cloud vs. Sepiroth statue, but assumption is that they'll release a CE for part 2, part 3, and then a trilogy CE in which the badass stuff will be released. Sons a doges, they're gonna milk the holy hell out of this one and I'll be one of those idiots that will buy every version of each release.

Still, it's pretty awesome and pre-bought two!

im expecting only chapter 1 gets a physical release that will serve as your physical piece and the subsequent chapters will all be DLC, thus making you buy each piece as you'll need save data from the previous to play it. this makes it where you cant just buy latter parts and they can sell all of them to each player. not sure why anyone would buy just the latter pieces but im sure they want to avoid that.

Tis a good theory, but ... I doubt it. There's far too much money to be made here.

Maybe..but more money to be made selling collectors edition to a few or every chapter to everyone who plays. I guess we'll see...but I can't see them wanting people to be able to skip the early chapters.

I wonder how many they'll actually make ... kinda thought they would have sold out by now TBH, but this is such a big ticket item, they'll probably make a ton of them.

I'm so not ok with this, so you're telling me that it's presumed and almost a given at this point, that I have to buy part of a 22 year old game for more than it originally sold for in 1997, then possibly turn around and pay more for each installment to finish said 22 year old game?

I remember when the gaming community as a whole were eating companies like Capcom and EA alive for releasing unfinished games that were later finished through paid DLC, but for some reason it ok for this jyst because its THE FFVII? AND you have some paying 300+ for just one part,.....

Yeh I have purchased episodic games before, but they were never full gamed+ priced per episode.. and they aren't games that were 22 years old that I finished already.. I mean they story stays the same.. the same people die, the same people live, the same people win, the same people lose. Sure they possible added in aspects of advent children and possibly crisis core, expanded some stories, but it all turns out the same ..Sure it looks AWESOME, but FFVII was the turn based 3d rpg that changed how we looked at rpgs, now they turned it into a good looking modern looking game with ffxv -ish combat system.. it has become just another fan service final fantasy game that is nothing revolutionary, just make all the cloud and seph crap stick around all that much longer.

Pardon my rant, just don't see how anyone can go from hating releasing unfinished games and paying to get the finished, to OMG its ff7, heres 1600(quite literally if JD's prediction comes true) gimme that game I beat 22 years ago, I have to see if Cloud can survive............ Just my Opinion

They don't even know how many parts this game is going to be yet from what the guys at Square said today, it could be 4, could be 10. Thats absolute insanity. In a time when we're getting full remakes of classic games for usually around $40 new, this game has the balls the come out of the gates with a full $60 price tag for only one part of the game because......FF7. Nope, Won't ever support that pricing model because I don't want other companies getting any bright ideas. Just imagine if Nintendo came out with a remake of OoT and charged you $60 for the Deku tree portion of the game.

And the reason why this is 2 BDRs is probably because there are more cinematics than gameplay.

@MrBean would probably buy a statue depicting the sex scene in Team America if one was made!

Please note, this is a soft bundle. The FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE Deluxe Edition contents are bundled separately from the Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife & Hardy Daytona.


No thanks.

its not just the old game though, they are adding dozens.. like many dozens of hours of new content apparently... midgar was 5 hours in the original game... and now its 2 blu rays? they have taken 5 hours and made it the size of RD2? thats a crap load of content, fully voicing and adding some quests will add lots of hours by default but it really seems like this is much more than just a prettied up version of the game. i just hope they dont reimagine it to the point they remove all the charm trying to serious up everything. some of those bits were meant to be funny like the honey bee inn/don corneo and the slap fight on the cannon etc.

Did they really say that the first release were 2 Blu Ray discs? From what I gathered he said the entire full game would be 2. I could be wrong though.

No, that isn't what he said. He said the game in full will be 2 blu ray discs. Not the first episode.

Probably chalk full of CGI's which eat up a ton of extra space. Its primarily why a lot of those older RPGs were multi-disc and why Square went with CD format over Nintendo and their cartridge system. I think they said that FF7 would have needed like 8 N64 carts because of the cut scenes.

Edit: People be spreading misinformation then because I've ben seeing a bunch of people saying that episode 1 is 2 BRDs.

The exact words:

"Remaking FFVII has allowed us to dive much deeper into its world and its characters than ever before. The game design is optimized for this as well, and we anticipate two full blu ray disks worth of content for this as well. The first game (he says game, not episode) in this project (as in the two full bd's worth of content) expands on the story of midgar, and has become such an elaborate [thing], that it has become a stand alone game (again not episode) in its own right.".

He never says this one is 2 discs at any point. Just that the project is expected to be two full bd disc. That could mean that the midgar section, since its its own game now, will be 2 discs once all the episodes is out, maybe. Or that the entire thing when done will be.

Hearing and reading it again, makes me think that they broke each original disc up into its own game. And that each of those will be episodic. This sounds worse than ever before.

It doesn't really sound like they know WTF they're doing. They were also saying that they don't anticipate the next entry in this FF7 thing to be made any faster than the first one was, so if this is 4 part thing it may take them 12 years to finish.
