FFXIII Playable Demo, FFVII PS3 Remake CONFIRMED

Update: Most of you have probably figured it out by now, but of course, we have to toss it out there-

APRIL FOOL'S!

We apologize for getting your hopes up, but it's all in good fun. And remember, nobody would want this to be true more than your friends at PSXE...we just wanted to see what it looks like in print. We may never be able to write a valid story containing these exact words - as sad as that is - so we took advantage. Heh...forgive us?

Original Story:

If you're a Square-Enix fan, you're well aware of their penchant for including high-profile demos for future titles in current retail releases. For example, you will recall the playable Final Fantasy XII demo we found in Dragon Quest VIII. Therefore, we figured it would only make sense to see something similar with The Last Remnant, S-E's first next-gen offering that should be available later this year. So we started digging...but we didn't expect to find this.

According to a reliable source at SCEJ, Square-Enix has something big planned for The Last Remnant's release. Or rather, they have two "something bigs" planned. First up: they will be including a 22-minute playable demo of Final Fantasy XIII with the PS3 version of The Last Remnant. This demo lets us play through a section of FFXIII that doesn't occur until a good 20 hours into the game, which leads us to believe the developers are progressing nicely. Heck, they might even be ahead of schedule. Now, you may figure that this is the biggest detail we uncovered, but it's not. Oh, it's really, really not.

Not long ago, Eat Sleep Play confirmed what so many fans have been waiting for, and that's a Twisted Metal project for the PlayStation 3. They did this by embedding a simple code - easily cracked - during the end credits of the PSP's Twisted Metal: Head-On. Well, it seems Square-Enix is taking a page from their book because at some point during The Last Remnant (we don't know exactly when), we will get undisputed confirmation that the long-awaited and oft-speculated-upon Final Fantasy VII remake for the PS3 will arrive in 2009! Square-Enix just got finished saying that the FFVII Compilation isn't complete, and clearly, this is the final title. It's exactly what we've been waiting for, too! Wooo!

I do believe it to be fake but I also could see Square Enix leaking info on a day where no one would believe it.

@Dena81 LOL I know how you feel... almost got a heart attack myself

This is the first site I normally visit first thing in the morning so I wasn't aware of it being "April 01, 2008" (studying renders me brain dead)... man you had to hear me scream at my school <....< How embarrasing :(

WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM!!! Why the hell would you do something like this to me? Saying a remake of 7 is coming out when it's really not is like telling a couple who have been trying to have a baby for YEARS that they are pregnant when they really aren't! If there's any justice in this world, whoever wrote this should be dragged naked through a desert of broken glass and cacti in the middle of summer! FUCK YOU!

Wow.The saddest part here is if you actually believed that when it was posted then i'd say your screwed up, not them.I mean it was obvious this was fake from the momment it was read considering the fact that theyre one of the only websites that posted this and if you were smart you'd realize that something like this would be all over almost every game site.
