Rumor: Final Fantasy VII HD For PSP2

Heeeeey, guess what we haven't talked about in a while?

We must be masochists because we always cling to the latest Final Fantasy VII remake rumor with stupidly renewed hope. Then again, as a long-time FF fan, I'm not exactly "hopeful" this time; FFVII in brilliant HD would be the remake of my dreams, but on the screen of the NGP (Next Generation Portable)...? Uh... This is the rumor generated by HipHopGamer, and everyone is now talking about the possibility of FFVII HD on the PSP2. Thus far, many fans seem to be both skeptical and annoyed: if Square-Enix really planned to overhaul Cloud's memorable adventure, the die-hard followers are gonna want it on their damn TVs. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if some just flat-out refused to play it on a five-inch screen. I probably wouldn't. This may be the first time I frowned at a FFVII remake rumor...how about you?

Oh, even if you do agree, we're probably in the minority. Evidently, the entire world loves to look at things on tiny screens now.

I would love it on my ps3~ but the truth of the fact is it will prob take another 5 years for square enix to pull all their resources and develop the game on the HD consoles..
NGP is the shortcut for them to make the game a bit faster and still sell like crazy...

fingers crossed that it'll make it on the ps3 instead though.

Well it would depend on if its an actual HD remake, or the original game remastered in HD. If the remake the game they might as well put it on the ps3, but if the were going to remaster the old one and make it look like present downloadable game graphics then it would make since for it to be NGP/PSN.
Honestly I would love for either, FFVII with trophies sounds amazing.

I read somewhere that even the Japanese mafia Yakuza's (the real ones) are aiding in the relief effort, as an fyi.

Out of tragedy, even the people you'd least suspect reach out with compassion. At least some good can come from horror.

Japanese love their country I guess...and really everyone should and fight and stick for what's right in their state.

I would love an HD Yakuza 1 & 2 remake as well.

As for FFVII. Really now? The rumor has resurrected? ...but to be honest...I would love to play FFVII on the NGP. I don't know why but for some reason, I always prefer RPGs on the PSP. For example even though I had Disgaea 1 & 2 on the PS2, I got them again for the PSP. ...sure it had some additions here and there which made it more fun, but again...just for some reason I enjoy playing RPGs on the PSP.

But then again, it is a pretty grandiose game, which would mean it would be better for home console.

I guess perhaps the best solution would be to have it release for the PS3 and Xbox 360 (considering how this generation is going) - and as a bonus for PS3 owners...we have cloud computing capability with the NGP.

Now that would be awesome!

FFVII is a nice game and everything, but I've played it already many times. Why would I go buy a PSP2 and a copy (digital no doubt) of FFVII in, let's face it, make believe HD?

Not going to happen. If I'm going to invest another 60 hours playing FFVII AGAIN, then yeah, it had better be on the big screen in full 1080p.

Well the only reason I could see NGP being the platform of choice for a FFVII remake would be to have a system seller.

However if they want it to be a system seller, they might as well wait until the PS4 is announced/released(whenever that will be) as I'm sure devs could make some games excellent enough the generate the desire to purchase an NGP.

If they DID do it, I want a AAA modern version.

I want it done from scratch, Advent Children style. I want the same environments, but redone and viewed from whatever angle I choose with a compass or map to help me out.

Think how amazing they could make a REAL remake look? Think about Nibelheim mountains! Think about Costa del Sol, or Wutai, or flying around in an airship chasing a remade Ultima Weapon! Even the sector 5 slums near Aeris' church... panning a camera around...

If they do it... do it AMAZING. I would be surprised if it didn't sell well.

Yeah that wouldn't change my mind on waiting a while past initial release for my purchase of the PSP2/NGP.

Actually I'd be pretty miffed if they did this because I'd prefer to purchase the HD FFVII over PSN so I could play it on my TV like Ben says.

If they did an actual remake of the game and put it on PSP2 I'd be super pissed because a real live remake needs to be a massive console production and nothing less.

Completely agree. They said they haven't done one on the PS3 because how much work it would be to make the towns and the world map, and yet they are thinking of doing it for the new handheld? I smell BS. I've already got FFVII on my PSP 3000. I'm not going to pay for a prettier version of it and pay for another handheld.

Put this thing on the PS3 or release it as a launch game when the PS4 comes out, but stop giving us shinier versions of the same game.

It wouldn't make me go out and buy an NGP, but I wouldn't mind it coming out on it. It's actually more likely that it did come out on the NGP to maybe rival what Nintendo is doing with Zelda:OoT and StarFox on the 3DS.

Although I do kind of want to see what they could do with a true PS3 remake of the game. Even though I know they'd probably do something stupid and add the FFXIII battle system to it no doubt. =/

I was using internet explorer and when i click on ANY link on this site it sends me to the "advertisement you will be directed in 30 seconds / skip this add" and when i press "skip this add" it just reloads to the advertisement page again..

Upon further research:

It is not running IE6. It is running Netfront. Netfront uses older Scripting technologies pioneered by IE6, but it is not IE6.

It's scripting does indeed contain Mozilla 5.0 references, but that is somewhat misleading as that merely seems to be a cloaked user-agent string. Everything else is blank. The PS3 apparently does not send an HTTP-Accept header to the server. It supports Javascript but will not divulge which version. Finally, it reports no mime types, no plugins, and no Javascript errors.

basically, it is it's own fricked up mess of a browser... outdated from up-to-date scripting... but it's called Netfront and it isn't a modified version of IE6. It just uses similar technology to IE6's java... technology that is no longer supported.

This would probably be the best platform for a remake since Square seems to be on top of their game when it comes to portable games.

In fact, I think I would prefer and remake for the NGP over the PS3. We already know what Cloud and Co. look like in 1080p.(Advent Children Complete).

I concur. And I'd buy a NGP just to play that title.

Besides, if it's made on the PSP2, then it's sure to be exclusive to a Sony platform, which'll save fans from creative worser negative feedback and worries of the game being gimped.

Haha... loved the opening line of this article.

I really don't care what it comes out on, all I want to know is that I want to play FFVII. If that means the NGP, then so be it. Of course, I'd much rather see it on the PS3/4, but that's just the way things go. Square Enix has to be working on it... It's the only possible reason for the slow progression on their other games (not really, but I just want it).

I like how you kept your composure there, well done.....

But I'm starting to think that with Duke Nukem Forever maybe seeing the light of day that the FFVII remake is the new long running joke of the gaming industry.

S-E's take on games this gen seems to be, We've screwed up everything we've put our hands on so far, but if you guys will still buy our product, we might give you a FFVII remake, or we might not.

I think the FFVII remake should be referred to now as the DNFFVII until the joke is over..lol

Tuesday, March 29, 2011 @ 7:45:36 AM

not exactly.
DNF was always suppose to come out, it only got delayed so many times because there were legal issues and they were originally suppose to use the quake 3 engine.
then that was refuted, so they had to redo the game with the UE2 engine, then UE3 came out so they again had to redo the game for that.
FFVII HD on the other hand genuinely will never release, because $E are just too god dam lazy!
they said theres no open world and shops in XIII because it would be "too hard".
so the likelihood of them biting the bullet and actually giving us a VII remake is near 0!
thats why i hate $E, eveything goes in the too hard basket!

Pixel for pixel, the NGP will be about as powerful as the PS3, it's just that the NGP/PSP2 will have 1/4 of the pixels compared to the PS3's 1080p capability. So it'll be about 1/4 as powerful in real computational terms. However it will be about twice as powerful as iPad2 since it uses the same basic CPU core and GPU core but has a quad core Cortex A9 instead of dual, and a quad core GPU instead of dual (can't remember the specific GPU model, but it's the same as the one in the iPad2, but with two more cores and specific support for multi-core processing).

The NGP/PSP2 will be a very powerful beast.

2:majority would want it played on ps3 to play on big screen.
3:This is square enix were talking about, they're all about pleasing the fans.......

If they re-make it for the NGP/PSP2 it would definitely be worth it, and it sort of makes sense since apparently the JRPG has been relegated to the handheld segment by some of the formerly major publishers/developers in the genre.

It would work, besides a 5-inch screen that operates at 1/4 1080p resolution isn't too shabby in terms of resolution. Heck, you could attach via a mini-HDMI and it would look good on a big screen too.

While I remember, I was watching a commercial the other night for a new Motorola phone and realized that what they were doing with the phone is something that Sony might - and *should* do with the NGP/PSP2.

The phone is the Motorola Atrix 4G, and what I think Sony should do is release a $200 accessory for the NGP/PSP2 which is a docking station with a wide screen LCD (something betwen 17 and 21-inches), a keyboard and trackpad for web browsing, wired ethernet, and even a controller interface, so you can use a regular hand held controller to play your games on the bigger screen. A version without the screen, but with a proper HDMI port wouldn't go amiss either. It would make the NGP/PSP2 a true transition device moving into a future where your console can go on the move with you or be played at home.

Here's a link to the Motorola Atrix 4G's secret weapon;

Don't get me wrong, I love FF7 as much as the next guy, it's arguably my favorite game of all time... but there is no need for this.

Well... I guess for people that haven't played it because it didn't have upgraded graphics it would be good, but for everyone who has already played it at least twice, why? It's not like the meat of the game is in the graphics, it's the story that makes that game so good.

If a remake were ever to happen, it'll happen on the NGP. It just wouldn't be cost-effective to release it on the PS3. Budgets for PS3 games mirror blockbuster movies nowadays. You know why Square-Enix won't invest in a remake for the PS3? Because it's too friggin' expensive!!

Believe me, if they could just remake the game on the PS3 looking like Advent Children, same battle system, same story, etc. and released in, let's say, 2014, I'd be waiting with 60 dollars in my hand. It's just not gonna happen though.

An NGP remake makes more sense. Cheaper, more convenient, and follows Square's pattern of remaking Final Fantasy games on handhelds (Final Fantasy 1 & 2 on GBA/PSP, Final Fantasy III on DS, Final Fantasy IV on GBA/DS/PSP, Final Fantasy V & VI on GBA/3DS, etc.) Why not add Final Fantasy VII to the NGP?

Still Ben, if you really want to play an "HD" version of Final Fantasy VII, to get the old PC version. It's been out for years and years, but it's probably as good-looking as any HD remake they're ever likely to make.

Why do people insist on a FFVII Remake? i would much rather a new IP. VII was OK but doesn't deserve a remake. yeah at the time those graphics were AMAZING. but the game was no where NEAR being the best FF game. majority of the people who say VII is the best haven't played 1-6, and if they did they probably couldn't sit through it because its not the graphics in VII. i want to move forward in the game world, not backwards. FFVII wasn't a game changer in the world of RPG's, which doesn't warrant it for a remake. if it made a HUGE difference in the way RPG's are played, i could understand. FFIV's remake is understandable, but the AMOUNT OF REMAKES, is not. the game was a huge change in the FF series. added tons of new Jobs into the game and made the game much more immersive. Job system was the greatest and VII messed it up. i would pick FFV over VII any day.

The only FF prior to FF7 I would even consider rivaling FF7 is FF6. FF4 had a decent story, but it lacks the depth the characters and story 7 are given. Mind you, 7's dialogue is crap, but the story beyond the dialogue is not. (Star Wars has an identical problem with poor dialogue/great story for a reference).

At any rate, such an issue is entirely subjective anyways, but I'm willing to be FF7 is most people's favorite FF. It certainly sold the most, as far as I know. (Don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure it landed nearly 11 million copies sold prior to the PSN release.) As the most purchased FF, it's not hard to believe it's many people's favorite. For the technology of the time, I definitely consider FF6 to be far more in depth, artistic, and well written in comparison, but that massive jump in technology leaves old fogies like you an' me behind. (Old in gaming terms, anyways.)

At any rate, I personally have a hard time picking my favorite FF. It almost depends on which one I've most recently played or am most longing for. FF6-10 was a golden streak for me, personally, but I very much preferred the battle system of FF5, although the story was lame except for the Galuf incident (just as potent as Aeris, imo), and I identified well with Cecil in FF4. I love the exploration of the first FF, the uniqueness of the battle system of FF2, the freedom to customize in FF3... I think my appreciation for FF5's system REALLY made me like FFT... a far better story than FF5. It's extremely similar battle system and job system coupled with the better story make FFT much better than FF5 for me... and for that reason, I know I can't make FF5 my favorite.

I dunno... they all have their own reason to love them... so inevitably, there really is no way you could ever pick "the best" objectively. It's entirely preference.

That being said, you can hardly fault people loving FF7... the most purchased and best recognized FF.

If it were playable on both the PS3 AND the NGP, I'd definitely say go for it.

I'm definitely frowning upon this one. Though it probably is the only game that could sway me to buy a handheld.

You know what i think Square-Enix guys can do the remake of the CLASSIC Final Fantasy VII with the technology today. They just making excuses so they can keep developing other FF series, which is all good but COME ON sales would go through the roof if they do the remake. Anyway im still hoping for a FFVII remake while im still breathing :)
