Why isn't FF7 on Xbox Live Arcade?

Probably the same reason that the original FF games are on PSN but not XBLA; Square has some strange obsession with its loyalty to Sony, regardless of the money and fans they could be making by expanding to more consoles.


And despite this "loyalty" the main games are coming on 360. Square Enix desperately needs corporate restructuring.

Making that describe 2 separate companies, or at least divisions of a company, would be a good start.

Square was good, Enix was good, SquareEnix sucks ass.

360 doesn't have games that looks like total poop on 720p tv's...

There are a few factors on this. The main one being it would take years just to make this HD remake of a game that is regarded among many as the best RPG of all time. There have been "hints" of a remake, but mostly these "hints" have been taken the wrong way, or completely taken out of context. Basically at E3 in 2005 Square Enix showed off what the PS3 was capable of by showing scenes from FF7 in HD... probably the wrong thing to do as then it just sent the rumour mill into overdrive. I personally think FF7 will come to PS3 or PS4 before it hits Live Arcade. I guess it comes down to where they prioritise FF7.

I would give my left nut to have this game in all honesty.

Nobody said anything about an HD version.

FFVII has been on PSN for many years, as a PS1 Classic, just like FFVIII and FFIX.

Serious Question?

All those FF games, FF1-9 on PS3 are simply PS1-versions running on a Emulator, its impossible for SE to put those games on Xbox360 without reprogramming, because honestly, do you really think Microsoft can use a PS1-Emulator ????

Well in that there are PS1 emulators for Windows, I'd say yes.

Because Sony was the original publisher on the PS1. So there is some sort of publishing agreement there somewhere. On a side note, SE actually published the PC version.
