Keep your knickers, this aint what you think it is.

The ESRB has rated Final Fantasy VII for the PS3. But before you go fucking mental, trashing your room in happiness, this aint the remake. This is the PS1 version probably getting ready for a release on the PS Store as a PS1 classic. It’s been on the Japanese PS Store for a while now.

The game’s been rated T for Teen and is being published by Sony Computer Entertainment America.

But is this leading to something bigger? Well, Advent Children Complete is released on Blu-Ray in the US on Tuesday, but last year has proved to expect the unexpected with Square Enix. We’re saying nothing except keep an eye on Tuesday…

How we missed this, I’ll never know.

Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has dropped the strongest hint yet so far that a Final Fantasy VII remake is on the cards. Speaking to OPM, during their world exclusive first playtest of FFXIII, Kitase said:

“For the Final Fantasy VII remake, I can say, that’s a gale I’ve lived with for over ten years, and mu emotional ties to it are very strong.
So if it were to happen then obviously there would be a lot of thought and work put on it.”

It’s said on the final, and missing, page of the preview that happened which also seen Edge go to the Square Enix offices and play FFXIII.

Is the Tide Finally Changing for PLAYSTATION 3?

Posted in PlayStation 3 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 9, 2009 by Jonathan Cullen


We’ll admit it.

You know it, I know, practically everyone knows it.

The pre-launch hype for the PlayStation 3 was a joke. A ridiculous price at £425/$599, barely any decent games at launch and PR which is probably the worst in history. Needless to say, the PLAYSTATION 3 has not had the best of lifecycles compared to the Xbox 360 or Nintendo Wii.

But since then, slowly but surely, things are getting better.
