Fresh off the biggest trolling in video game history, Square Enix has announced that the upcoming PS4 port of Final Fantasy VII will cost $US16.
For comparison, that’s about $US1 more than your average digital title — or $US4 less than Square’s own newly-released Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris — and about 1/4 the price of a full retail game, which usually costs $US60.
Final Fantasy VII is currently $US12 on Steam and just $US10 on the PlayStation Network for PS3, Vita and PSP. This PS4 release will be a port of the Steam version.
Reasonable? Too expensive? I’ll let you be the judge of that one. What’s worrying me is that if Square is creating a new ecosystem for PS4 ports like this, we might never see PS1 Classics brought to the PlayStation 4, which would be a serious shame.
