This is not really a deal. The book isn't rare as it has been reprinted. Amazon has had it in-stock for quite a while.

Yeah, I wish it was reprinted...

Amazon at the moment does not have it in stock, and it's going from $23 from other sellers.
I didn't know it was reprinted, BTW. I'd figured that if anyone were looking for this guide, they can get it for cheap, or even near free with the $10 gift card from the SSBB pre-oder fiasco. ;)

It shows that it is in stock and sold by Amazon when I visit the page.

Surfer Girl Reviews Star Wars says that Sony and Enix are working on an updated version of FFVII to be released on PSN. It says that it's not going to be an updated version like the tech demo at E3, more of a graphical update (probably so it doesn't look so damn grainy in HD). Usually I would SCREAM BS at this, but SGRSW has been pretty fucking spot on with A LOT of the predictions or insider news, so I'm putting this under my "God I hope it's true" pillow without discount.

I sold my copy of FF7 months ago as sooner or later they will re-release the game in some form, probably over PSN. And once that happend the disc copies value will plumit! Getting $68 for a game I bought for $20 years ago is a pretty sweet deal.

I would love a final fantasy 7 update but only if they gave it a real hd graphical update. For now I will get the guide so I can play through my black label final fantasy 7 which I was lucky to keep when I sold most of my ps games like 5 years ago. :lol:

cause it was already reprinted several times, Square even kept printing it after most retailers stopped carrying PS1 games, there are millions of copies out there and unless you just started gaming the past 2-3 years, there were plenty of opportunities to buy it brand new for $15

I've got the Versus guide... But I loaned it to a friend years ago and he practically destroyed it. I've still got it, but the cover is all jacked up and pages are falling out... But FWIW, the Versus guide was outstanding.

I got a phone call the other day and my parents told me they gave away a bunch of the old game stuff I left at their house. In that pile was a black label FF7, a mint guide, a memory card with a bunch of playthroughs on it, and a gameshark with a bunch of FF7 codes on it.

I was PISSED.

Do you have a link to that? And are they reliable cus I've never heard of them? That would be incredible because a PS3 remake could mess up the nostalgia but a PSN remake ala Bionic Commando Rearmed would be AMAZING.

I'd be SOO angry. I'd be more upset over the game saves than the game itself I think. That sucks man.

I've seen guys selling FF7 game saves on ebay lately, but if there not your own, feels wrong.

Hahaha, that song was the first thing that popped in my head. They gave away Parasite Eve, FF8, my fuckin' Game Gear, my Genesis with NBA Jam. WTF.

Who does that? They obviously don't love me...

Yeah, you left crap taking up space at your parents house though. In their mind if you didn't take old crap with you, what reason would they have to think you wanted it.

Still have my original FF7 copy from release as well as this guide. This would be exciting if it were the Versus guide. Personally, I think this guide is poorly organized. I've made quite a good amount of pen-written notes in the guide to improve it's quality. ;)

The Versus FF7 guide is sweet. I still have my copy though it's a little beat up. It included that poster with all the characters. The guide gives alot of info without giving away spoilers.

The Brady guide is a clusterFuck of information.

I've seen them sold on ebay for like $25. But the guy who was selling it had a list of VERY impressive saves. Some with everything, some modded to have Aeris and Seph in your party, some of cool stuff too. I was almost tempted to buy it, but a split second later realized what a dork I'd be if I did.

I saw the copy of FF VII with the black insert sell for over $100 ($102) the other day on ebay. I have that exact copy. For the poster that says if Sony makes FF VII available online the value will plummet I disagree. That is like saying if they reprint Michael Jordan rookie cards the originals will fall in value. In the collectable world the original always retains value because it actually is the original. That is why the black insert FF's are woth more than the green insert ones.
