When we first heard that PS1 classics would be available via digital download on the PlayStation Network, everyone was asking, "when will we get Final Fantasy VII ?!"
Well, we've got it now, and a great many of you have responded. According to the latest numbers provided by Sony (of which we'll expand upon later), what is arguably the best RPG of all time has been downloaded over 100,000 times already! Obviously, this makes it the fastest-selling PS1 download on the PSN to date, and you can count on that number swelling more over time. Now, with the immense popularity of this re-release, we just have to bring it up: wouldn't a proper remake, produced with next-gen technology, be absolutely gargantuan ? Many have argued that we're so far past FFVII in the chronology of gaming that it may not be relevant anymore; that the new generation simply wouldn't be interested in a remake. However, as this re-release essentially proves, there are plenty of people out there who continue their love affair with the game, which translates to the inevitable fact: a remake would be worth it. Of course, we're not about to resurrect that ridiculous rumor again, as there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that supports a remake. You can feel free to dig up whatever you like, but bear in mind that whatever you find is nothing more than rumor and/or speculation. Or maybe you won't care.
But anyway, the point is, FFVII is still very popular. It hasn't been on the PSN for very long, and it has already been downloaded over 100,000 times. Pretty damn impressive.
