It looks like the much-ballyhooed remake of Final Fantasy VII that was shown off during Sony's E3 press conference will be coming to Xbox One after all, if the Australian arm of EB Games is to be believed.
They've listed Final Fantasy VII Remake as being available for preorder on Xbox One for the placeholder price of $109.95 AUD (£51 GBP, $81 USD) with an unconfirmed release date of 2016.
Not only that, but the retailer fielded a question or two about the game on its Facebook page, stating that the game is definitely coming to Xbox One. However, they also state that Square Enix have announced the game for both PS4 and Xbox One (which isn't something we were aware of) and that the PlayStation 4 version will have "early access."
They seem pretty confident that their information is on the money, although it was always on the cards that the game would eventually make the jump, as far as we're concerned. We'll bring you more information, as well as hard confirmation, just as soon as we have it.
At E3 they did say "Play it first on PS4". Which I would assume means that it is coming to Xbox One later.
Sony would have said exclusive for PlayStation during the trailer, I'm not at all shocked by this, it would make more sense since ff13 am 15 are on Xbox. Besides they don't care about fanboys, if they were to sell it on multiple platforms it's more money for them, and I bet it will make tons of profit on this remake. I believe everyone no matter the console should play this classic, New comers and old darts like me who was a kid when I first played it, not only my first ff game but also my first rpg.
Ya we've always known it wasn't a playstation exclusive. Sony just gets that first play bonus. Their verbiage at E3 was a classic example of PR strategy, something that had been done with Call of Duty on Xbox for years or Destiny with PS4.
Yea after all the PS hype dies down.......now the truth comes out. I knew this would come to Xbox One. It's not like Square hates $. And it's not like Sony can afford to pay them enough to make up for the lost sales.
Besides, like you said, this long awaited remake should be available to all gamers. If the Wii U could actually run it, I would say give it to them too.
Also, it's great that a new generation of gamers get to experience this great RPG. Not everyone is an old fart like me & played this back when it came out.
Well, the 'truth' came out at E3. The trailer never said exclusive it said first on PS4, pretty obvious what that means. Anyway, it's SquareEnix, if this game is out before 2018 I will be stunned. I hope for the sake of those who have been asking for this for years now that I'm wrong and SE actually gets it out in timely fashion but that company has a ton on its plate.
Best game ever, now I can play it again. there just better not be an achievement for beating Ruby Weapon!
Just like how Tomb Raider apparently will never hit PS4, FFVII remake will never hit Xbox One.
Yea I am guessing there will be ridiculous achievements. The FFX HD remake had some very tough trophies on PS3/Vita.
Yea, it's all just marketing b.s.
Tomb Raider being an Xbox One "exclusive" got Sony fanboys panties in a bunch for awhile ("the series started on PlayStation!!!!" was what they would say) before it was revealed to be a timed exclusive. Just Xbox paying a ton of $ for early sales & marketing sake.
The FFVII remake got Sony fanboys all riled up when it was revealed at E3, but we all knew it would come to Xbox eventually. Another timed exclusive, this time in Sony's camp. So now it's Sony paying for early sales & marketing.
In the end, we all get both games (well, not Nintendo fans I guess) which is how it should be & everybody wins.
Is it sad that I'd pay that price for this remake?
I agree. I don't mind timed exclusives much at all.
I never play games when they first come out anyways. I play lots of different games, so my backlog is usually insane. And like you said, gamers usually get some bonus from the developer for making us wait.
@Utena-mobile because fanboys ruin it by spoiling the plots online, hense why I won't be supporting RoTR at all for allowing that to happen.
FFVII at least has had its plot known for over 15 years.
@EternalDragonX No, 'cos I'd pay it too.
@Utena-mobile It is hard when you see fanboys spoiling the whole game, hense why I'm done with RoTR and the series.
@Utena-mobile Right, well what happens is...
That piano music when what happen to Aeris happens........
F*** timed exclusives. I'd rather have a game the day and date it originally releases. To me that's much more appealing than getting a port one year later with an extra costume for $60. This is why it's best to own multiple consoles though.
Awesome! As someone who has never played the original this is very good news and I can't wait to see what all the fuss is about. I think I am looking forward more towards 15 though.
