Alternate title: "No, Square is not remaking Final Fantasy VII for the PS3".
If a clip is labeled "Tech Demo", it is NOT a game in production. The purpose of a tech demo is to showcase the processing power and graphical capabilities of a system. A lot of the time, real franchises are used in tech demos - Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy - but these "snippets" of games are NOT
examples of actual games in production. They are "mock" games, or VERY short 'games', created for the sole purpose of making a console ACT like it is running a game. Using known franchises just helps to get your attention.
This isn't to say that a Tech Demo might not later BECOME a game, and there's usually a lot of talk that they will. But honestly, I can't even remember a time when it has. xD And I've been here a while.
Actual games in production are showcased as such, and are NOT called "tech demos". Once you know that, it's easy to tell the difference.
This is an EASY mistake to make, and even huge websites have made it. But if you are a watcher of mine, you now know the difference between a tech demo and a game in production.
As far as Final Fantasy goes, Square has NEVER
work towards remaking Final Fantasy VII (and in fact, they often insist that they don't WANT to remake it), but as usual, their PS3 tech demo back in '05 was mistaken for a game in actual production. It didn't help that for shits and giggles they threw that demo at the end of Crisis Core, though, so they were asking for trouble. And this newest "Final Fantasy: Agni's Philosophy" thing is as yet only a tech demo made to showcase real-time graphical capabilities
and does not indicate an upcoming Final Fantasy game.
So in other words...Please stop talking to me about these two Final Fantasy games because they are not 'games', they are tech demos.
When in doubt, please use Google.
