[PS4] Final Fantasy VII Remake $29 + Delivery (Free C&C) @ EB Games

1020

Cheapest price for the game currently, matching the one Big W had during Christmas. If you have a ps5 and plan to play the new dlc, i believe buying this and the dlc seperately comes out cheaper. Even factoring in trade in values after you've finished playing, the former option comes out cheaper. Unless I've done my research wrong and someone can correct me on that.

EDIT: Currently $10 @ Big W (thanks @luchocarias), but it seems to be out of stock and price matching requires the item being 'in stock'. So unless you can find it locally, you're out of luck.

      The PS5 upgrade isn't available with the PS+ version.

      •  

        The upgrade isn’t out yet, unless you want to wait to play.

          Who wouldn’t wait if they had a ps5? There’s like extra part of the game and stuff

            @MaxDong69: I have the PS+ version. And I probably will replay it when it’s remastered for the PS6 anyway.

            •  

              @AustriaBargain: I guess by then part 1 + 2 should be available as a package deal

            •  

              @AustriaBargain: Lol PS6? Thats going to be 2028.

              Need to go thru 2024 ps5 slim then 2025 ps5 pro.

          •  

            @MaxDong69: What?? What extra part

            •  

              @deme: The remake was supposed to be a trilogy. We haven't heard anything beyond 'Part 1' (this one) until this 'Yuffie chapter DLC' (PS5 only) but nothing yet about 'Part 2'. Maybe by PS6.

              •  

                @Hybroid: Thanks. Maybe I was dreaming then I thought I saw part two for preorder in my ps4's store.

            •  

              @deme: Yeah as Hybroid said the yuffie dlc

            The game looks marginally different. Without side by side shots I couldn't tell which version is which.

            The DLC is not free btw.

      This is mainly for people who have a ps5 and plan to play the dlc as i stated in the description. Also stated by holiness, doesn't qualify for the upgrade.

    •  

      Yeah and I don't give a crap about the DLC.

      I don't have a PS5 and I don't plan to get one.

      Square enix should not be supported for the way they handle this DLC. It should be purchasable for PS4 owners.

      Would not support a company forcing you to buy ps5 just for this game

      Rather than giving us part 2 they bring on DLC Yuffie

      Looks like we won't have part 2 for another 2-3 years, by that time you probably need to buy a PS6 to play

      •  

        Wait, is the Yuffie sidequest exclusive to PS5?

        •  

          Yes exclusive to PS5 only. You also need to have bought the retail copy of FF7 remake and cannot use your PS Plus copy and buy the DLC to play with even if you are on PS5

      • +2 votes

        They shouldn't have made it for PS4 full stop. It's apparently going to be a trilogy (at least) and it already took them years to release part one, we very well could be on PS6 before it fully concludes. We're either going to get a lesser game that has to bend to PS4 limitations or more likely they'll drop PS4 support for future entries.

        Square used to be great but man did they get greedy as the years went on.

          SquareEnix has been crap, the original Squaresoft has been a lot better

        •  

          They shouldn't have made it for PS4 full stop.

          They wanted to leverage the established install base of PS4. There are fewer PS5 owners which will mean fewer potential sales.

          It's apparently going to be a trilogy (at least) and it already took them years to release part one, we very well could be on PS6 before it fully concludes.

          That seems quite likely if not a certainty.

          We're either going to get a lesser game that has to bend to PS4 limitations or more likely they'll drop PS4 support for future entries.

          I believe PS4 is being dropped for future entries, if the DLC has already dropped PS4 support.

          Square used to be great but man did they get greedy as the years went on.

          They lost a ton of cash on that flop of a movie, went into debt, then merged with Enix to get out of debt. You have to be greedy if you want to overcome your debts and make some profits. They're just doing what businesses do: answer to shareholders. The true greedy people are the shareholders.

          I'm getting the same as raptor, $10 but no stock so i doubt it would be possible to price match with EB as they always state they need to be 'in stock'. But for some reason if i don't click your link and google it, i get $79.

            @b0nkers: Odd, showing $79 for me in VIC both mobile and desktop with my postcode entered but no stock and no delivery options

    Definitely $10 here in QLD but was out of stock at my local Big W

    Waiting for Amazon to have this for $20 or a PS5 re-release

      Isn't intergrade the re-release?

        that's the PS4 version with the free upgrade.

        He's talking about a disc copy that has the PS5 label on it.

    Definitely Worth it, Just finished in four days due to PS Plus month finishing. Grab that Materia!!

    Playing this at the moment on my ps5, it's my first final fantasy game… I'm having a good time.

      this is out on PS5 ??

        Just the free PS4 version from PS+ this month… not a lot of actual PS5 games to play atm.

    I reckon this will be released on Game Pass next month alongside the next gen upgrade. We'll see how well this comment ages…

    •  

      I’m wondering/hoping this too.

    • +1 vote

      You know this game is a timed exclusive for PS4/PS5. It's unrealistic to expect it to be added immediately to GamePass (as the game has not yet been released on PC or XBox One), even less likely for next gen upgrade to be included.

      On PS Plus, the PS4 version is the free at the moment, but the next gen upgrade version isn't.

      •  

        I realise, but why is it unlikely? It's a timed exclusive until April, so it's not unrealistic. Outriders for example is day one Game Pass but full price on PS. Octopath Traveler was day one Game Pass and isn't even out on PS. Both are Square Enix too. What's not to say there's a deal brewing for FFVII to make its way to Game Pass?

        • +1 vote

          Because Outriders is developed by People Can Fly, which has a relationship with Microsoft (they developed Gears of War: Judgment for Microsoft). The game is being published by Square Enix this time. It is kind of weird since they could have let Epic games publish it I thought.

          Final Fantasy VII Remake sold well on PS4. It doesn't make sense to put that on GamePass on day 1 and what's the incentive for Microsoft to do so? The fact that the PS5 enhanced version is out makes it even less likely. Sony got a timed exclusive from Square Enix, and the next gen enhancement got put on the competitor's GamePass the first day it is out of timed exclusive?

            Final Fantasy VII Remake sold well on PS4. It doesn't make sense to put that on GamePass

            A ton of games on game pass would have sold well. Including all of their first party games on day 1.

            and what's the incentive for Microsoft to do so?

            To slap Sony with their wallet. They're leveraging the one massive weapon they have that Sony doesn't: huge wads of cash. The amount of money needed to utterly crush Sony into the ground is just a rounding off error for MS. After Nadella took over MS, they have shown a willingness to splash the cash even if it loses them money in the short term, if it can knock a competitor out of the game. Ballmer didn't like the Xbox division because he wanted every individual division of MS to be profitable, not just the whole of MS. So he wasn't receptive to powerplays like Spencer's spending spree.

            It doesn't make sense to put that on GamePass on day 1 and what's the incentive for Microsoft to do so?

            If someone is sitting on the fence on whether to buy PS5 or XSX, and one console makes you buy the games, while the other lets you play everything for $10 USD a month, that's one big incentive to buy an XSX over a PS5, which is a win for MS. It will cost them a lot of money, but there may never be a PS6 if this works out, and then MS has a monopoly on console gaming (the Switch is a handheld that can be plugged into the TV — if you call that a console then my phone is a console too).

            Sony got a timed exclusive from Square Enix, and the next gen enhancement got put on the competitor's GamePass the first day it is out of time exclusive?

            Yes. Just like Octopath Traveler. Exclusive to Switch for a few years, and then day 1 on GP.

              @lostn: First party games, well, Microsoft need them on GamePass, otherwise people would question its overall value proposition.

              Slap Sony with their wallet? Sony got their cut from FF7 Remake already. Microsoft vs Sony is actually getting complicated. Sony now uses Microsoft Azure cloud (and Nadella is happy with that I reckon). Also, Sony San Diego will release MLB the show 2021 on XBox One and PC. Is it really good for consumers that Sony gets extinguished by Microsoft? Buying Bethesda is somewhat necessary, due partly to the screw up by 343 Industries. My Series X cardboard box is heavily Halo Infinite themed.

              Being a supporter for both camps, I am more disappointed with Microsoft with next gen so far. They removed GamePass voucher from console (you get one with a XB1S / XB1X but not with a series S|X). Clearly, Microsoft knew I have Series X (on launch day) and decided to block me from $1/month GamePass Ultimate on my main account. And XBox Live Gold price increase stunt Microsoft tried to pull. How about the tier system Microsoft started (GamePass vs GamePass Ultimate). The free games for XBox Live Gold are laughable lately. Quick Resume is great, but this Series X enhanced games must be on SSD annoys me (even if those are XB1 games with framerate lock removed). I don't want to buy that memory add-on dongle for XB1 games (just because it now has 60fps support).

              As for buying games costing so much. Honestly, OZBers buy game cheap can sell them in a smart way. With EB world level bonus + birthday 50% bonus, I sold multiple games for more than I paid for. Think about it, for PS4 players moved on to PS5, the only two key first party exclusives you need to purchase are TLOU part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima. The other ones are already in PS Plus or free (yes REALLY FREE - no PS Plus needed) collection.

              The reason I think it is unlikely is: Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade (if you purchased this disc version, you get the PS5 enhanced part for free). I imagine Square would like to milk some money out of that for next gen consoles.

              Honestly, the proper way for Microsoft to one up on Sony for this is to offer this as a free game for XBox Live Gold May 2021 (it won't make it to April 2021). Otherwise, as most 3rd party titles on GamePass, they do leave the library after a few months.

                This won't be the only game to go on GP. GP is their big picture, if we are to take them at their word. A ton of games you would have to buy on PS5 will be free to GP subscribers. I doubt this is profitable for MS, but their other divisions will carry the Xbox division, so they can afford the loss.

                Is it really good for consumers that Sony gets extinguished by Microsoft?

                Not at all. But it's good for Microsoft, and they aren't a charity. Gaining monopolies is in their DNA.

                They removed GamePass voucher from console

                I have heard they offer 3 months for $1 instead of the usual 1 month. I don't know if that's still current though.

                I don't know what MS's end goal is with GP. I imagine they will spend most of this gen getting as many people as possible onto GP, and then raise the price. $120 USD a year for GP is the price of 2 games (less now that they are $70 each). But you get access to hundreds of games for the price of two. Simple math would have it that they are losing a lot of money. The only way they don't lose money is if those casual gamers who rarely ever buy games pays for GP and then doesn't play anything. But the kind of consumer who rarely buys games or touches their console isn't the kind who will pay for GP. GP is for those hardcore who normally buys lots of games but now don't have to at all, making a huge saving. These guys are going to cost MS a lot of revenue.

                Sony gave a ton of free stuff, but not new stuff. That's a more prudent way of doing it, and it makes sense since they are a 100B company vs a 1.5T company. If Sony wasn't protected by Japan's regulations, MS could have bought them with just their petty cash jar.

    • +1 vote

      combat is ok, but your AI controlled allies can't be trusted to do anything intelligently. You have to switch to them and do it yourself. The trouble is, you can't count on them to move out of an AOE puddle of acid. You can switch to them, but then lose control of your current character who will then go and stand in the puddle of acid pretending it isn't there.

      Or if a boss is about to unleash a damaging AOE and telegraphs the move, you can move your current character out of the way, but the other two won't know to do that. Switching to them won't help, because it just means a different character gets out of the way while the other two take the hit.

      I found myself in a chain of them taking a lot of damage, and me needing to spend ATB bar to heal them, then they get hit again, and I have to spend more ATB bars healing them. It was a vicious cycle of always healing those morons and never having the ATB to actually do anything else. This would never happen if it was turn based.

      That's why I hate party based ARPGs. If it's going to be action combat, let it be a single character. The AI always finds a way to hinder you otherwise. If it's multi character, I prefer TB so I can control everyone and not have morons play the game for me.

        Spoiler alert… Did something change?

        When interviewed last year, the voice actress for Jessie thought Jessie… you know…. But, she did say she does not know anything about part 2 and she is unclear whether she will be in part 2. I thought we won't know for sure until part 2 is released.

          i haven't kept up with developments, but her fate left room for interpretation. luffyex2010 says she lives (which was speculation) implying it is confirmed.

          I honestly don't like they way they messed with the story. People who live when they shouldn't have just cheapens their death scene. She's not the only one. There are at least two others.

      Hope

      Ff7 next gen is on a different timeline so anything can happen. We could see cloud resurrecting Aerith from death by looking for the white materia in the ocean ( lmao how much time I wasted on the search)

      Hardly …..any good NPC character dies in this new ff7
      (Wedge, biggs) this new ff7 is for the fans! No more sadness.

      •  

        that's a bad thing. If death can be reversed it has no meaning. Death is powerful only when the loss is felt. But then again it is the new Square Enix. I don't have high expectations of them.

    OK So I just bought this and installed on my PS5. I'm assuming that the free upgrade to intergrade will become available closer to the launch date? As well as the Yuffie DLC?
