People just can't stop talking about it.
After Square Enix revealed a new Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer at the PlayStation Experience, millions of fans started talking.
Then the company announced that the game would be released in episodic format (or something similar), and the world exploded.
I call it little more than a marketing ploy, but some people really like the idea . The point is, love it or hate it, this is the path Square Enix has chosen, so the real question is: How much are you willing to pay for it? One would think the entire production would cost $60 in total, whether you pay for it all up front (like you will with Hitman ) or incrementally, paying a certain amount per part/chapter/episode or whatever. Then there's the question of DLC or microtransactions and given the massive fan base for this game, I'm willing to bet Square Enix is considering both.
Ultimately, what do you see yourself paying for this? Me, I'm not paying a dime, but I'm sure I'm in the minority. Can you see yourself paying well in excess of $60 for the entire re-imagined production? If so, how much more? It'll be interesting to see what people say…and Square Enix should probably pay attention.
