Unlike other games, I've only bought FF7 2-3 times. I originally got the PC version because I only had an N64 back then. It ran like shit on my Packard Bell (remember them??) and the FMV when they escape from the frozen crater on disc 2 constantly crashed the game. I had to go into the files and replace the FMV with a dummy file to play through quickly to allow it to continue.

Bought the PS1 version on PSN. At some point, owned the original PS1 discs, pretty sure I sold them years ago once digital became such a viable option.

And yes. For less than $20, I too will buy this, may even pre-load.


This will be my fourth time. Once on PC then a PS1 disc and PS4 digital. But with X as my main go to now, I just gotta have it on there too.

Odd picks but it’s something! Think I may have gotten Hydrophobia at some point.

I’m just going to say it... I’ve never beaten Final Fantasy VII. I haven’t even made it anywhere near finishing the first disc. And now you people are making me want to buy it. Thanks for that lol

FFVII will be my third time I purchase it, previous two PS1 and PS4. I put in over 300 hrs into that game and it will mock me on my Xbox since I will never have that kind of time to game ever again.

Hydrophobia was like a buck a month or two ago. Picked it up for that reason alone.

Only bought FFVII once on PS1. But it was my first 100+ hour game. I still remember grinding so much before I tried entering the point of no return.

I’m actually a bit worried that playing it again would ruin my memories.

You probably got it when it was cheap like $1-2 and I've been having it for years but still have yet to play it.

I don't keep up with rewards but I was already planning on paying for a month of EA to check out Anthem. I did that and downloaded it so now what? Was I supposed to activate something first bacause my points haven't changed. It shouldn't be this difficult...

Sorry if reposted, but didn't see it. $15.99. After seeing this game sell so many PS1s and help Sony establish dominance, it's pretty crazy to see it coming to Xbox at all.

100MB is the file size. This sucker was on 3 discs 22 years ago and all I can think of is how it was too big to fit on an n64 cartridge lol

Hydrophobia is a decent playthrough but it just kind of abruptly ends with a story that will never be finished.

 

Marathon is confusing as hell compared to Doom or Duke Nukem. It is also Marathon 2, with 1 and 3 never released on consoles. All three games are available for free on PC and Mac through the link below, Bungie put the source code out a while back and actually promoted these a long time ago. I've always wanted to play through these as the story is supposed to be good (in the many terminals), so maybe I'll try one more time.

I wonder if the Activision deal was somehow holding back this BC until now.

I played it again a couple years ago. I really enjoyed it as a teenager, but I could relate much more with it as an adult. I don't want to say much and fuel any sort of expectations, but I think you'll get more out of it now than you did before.

Square Enix is supposedly working on FF VII Remake for PS4, but it was announced years ago and we don't even have any release time frame yet, so who knows.

That's just the pre-load placeholder. Crackdown 3 did the same thing.

Expect it to be multi-platform, since they development cost is so high, but it may be a timed exclusive ala Nier Automata. It sure looks pretty, though.

That's just the standard pre-order file size. It is 4.26 gigs on PS4. On PS1 it was about 1.3 gigs total. Nintendo 64's biggest cartridge was only 64 MB.

 

Though Angel Studios managed to port Resident Evil 2, shrinking it from about 730 MB down to 64. I don't think even they could have done double the info, and Capcom close to launch realized RE2 could have been on 1 disc.

Yeah, fanboys were freaking out over it being exclusive because it was announced at Sony's conference, but Square-Enix has never confirmed or even implied exclusivity. I think the name is too big for them to want to do exclusivity at this point. Nier was not nierly as popular at the time and that's why it was exclusive for a while, I wouldn't be surprised if the next game isn't exclusive, especially if it was a direct sequel featuring 2B again, though knowing Yoko Taro that is unlikely.

 

Mainline FF games have been multiplatform on launch since XIII. XIV is the exception because console crossplay wasn't an option when it launched.

If anyone is interested, apparently the Phoenix Wright Trilogy was spotted on the Nintendo eShop with an April 9th release date. Presumably, that is also the day it would hit Xbox Live in the west.

We can expect most or all of the marketing to be for Sony, but with even the older remastered games getting ported, they aren't going to spend years in HD development and then limit their audience, especially when porting to such similar architecture.

My only concern really is it'll pull a FFXV and not come out until well into the next console generation.

I remember buying FFVII used *cringe* and disc 2 had to be buffed out already. This was maybe 7-12 months after release? Insanity. However I had the thin as my hair now strategy guide, a notebook and a hella patient wife to help me for the 100 and some hours I put into it. I was tracking the damn chocobos, the materia, trying to beat Ultima bosses (and failing) but I finally beat 85% of it. Damn do I want to go down there again?

On that side note, just bought a new X1X, came with a Games Pass TRIAL instead of a regular month. Instead of watching the lurkers go nuts in the free threads, would rather somebody here get it if they want it cuz most of y'all crazy old like me! First to the pm finish gets it!
Now watch nobody wants it 🤣

Does anyone have the point values for the earn 15 more achievements and the bonus points for completing all 21 on the punchcard? I'm going to submit a ticket but need to know how many points I'm entitled to.

You needed to activate the punch card first before downloading it. You may be able to go back and activate it, but I'm not sure. Someone else may know if that's possible or not.

It's a total of 600 points. It's not tracking for me either along with a couple other punch cards. Glad to know it's not just me.

Yeah same thing here with the first two checked. Sometimes it says how much for each punch so I wonder if it's an all or nothing for this one?

Nah I'm positive I got something for each, I'm pretty vigilant about knowing my point total each day and remember seeing it rise when those ticked.

I bought FF7 20+ times if you count when I bought over 20 copies of the black black label from Kmart on clearance and flipped them for 100+ each
I miss the old times

I've wondered over the years whether FF7 could fit on an N64 cart, if cost wasn't a factor.  A cartridge big enough to hold the entire game is possible, probably even back in the day.  Just keep throwing more / larger chips in there, would probably need to change the form factor, but doable.  But could the N64 access everything or would there be address space issues?

You appear to be right, someone on reddit said the same thing. Ticket sent. If you need the support link as well, here it is
