PS3 Final Fantasy VII a Possibility?

When Square Enix showed a tech demo of Final Fantasy VII for Playstation 3 at E3 2005, fans of the game were awed. But some fans went too far into speculation by stating that Final Fantasy VII was in development for the new Playstation console, which is far from the truth. This tech demo was simply a demonstration of what Square Enix can do working with Playstation 3,s hardware.

Still, the June 2006 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly has remarks that provoked Final Fantasy VII fans grow to be infatuated. Quoted is an excerpt from the article:

"Last year, Square Enix teased everyone with what was called the FFVII PS3 demo. Well, what do you know? This test case was really a sneak peek at a next-gen revival of the PS1 role-playing hit."

After all of this craze and confusion, Square Enix decided to strike back with a direct reply. The RPG geniuses said that, "Since the FINAL FANTASY VII tech demo at E3 2005, there have been a lot of rumors about the presentation hinting at an actual remake. While the June 2006 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly confirms the remake for release in 2007, Square Enix has never stated this.We have however confirmed that development has begun for Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII on PlayStation 3. These titles are part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis Project which also includes a mobile game titled FINAL FANTASY Agito XIII."

While these words clearly spell out that the company isn,t working on a Playstation 3 version of Final Fantasy VII, it leaves hope for fans that are optimistic. Right now Square Enix is working hard at Final Fantasy XIII titles, but a remake of VII isn,t totally out of the picture.
