Why did Square Enix make the Final Fantasy 7 tech demo if it wasn't a real game?

80/80

I purchased this console under false pretenses and feel cheated. Why make a tech demo if you won't make a full game out of it? Nintendo shows tech demos for Zelda but turns them into real games.

To show off the PS3's tech, same with the FF8 tech demo last gen. How do people still not know this or is this a rhetorical question?

Hype. They were just showing off their new graphics engine.

Would you care as much about it if it didn't have the Final Fantasy 7 name attached to it?

Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.

Would anyone actually want SquareEnix to remake the game? They'd only find new and exciting ways to ruin it.

Hype, just like Versus on PS3.

It doesn't feel good to fall for SE's hype machine does it?

I'd only take a FF7 remake if they fixed all the problems with it. Like the story, characters, and gameplay.

Can't fix the greatest game of all time, since it's already perfection.
