127w ago - On this July 4th holiday SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has announced some new LittleBigPlanet 2 Packs incoming, including inFAMOUS 2, Toy Story, and FINAL FANTASY VII!
To quote: Over the next two months we've got some pretty darned cool LittleBigPlanet 2 DLC packs heading your way.
I'm sure you've noticed the title of this post, so let's not delay any further - from the depths of Midgar, I'm delighted to unveil...the FINAL FANTASY VII costume pack!
Coming to the PlayStation Store on July 13th, these costumes will let you re-live the struggle of Cloud, Aeris, and the rest of AVALANCHE against Shinra, from one of the most iconic and critically acclaimed video games of all time.
Exciting stuff - but that's not all. I'm sure lots of you have been enjoying the continuing adventures of Cole McGrath in inFAMOUS 2. Those adventures can now continue even further thanks to the inFAMOUS 2 mini-pack.
Released this week for $2.99, it contains costumes for Good Cole and Bad Cole, as well as a whole host of new stickers. Being a hero is optional in inFAMOUS 2, so this will give you a chance to show your true colors!
On July 20th, the Killzone 3 mini-pack will be released containing Rico...
236w ago - The PlayStation Network continues to be an integral part of Sony's business model, with the company today announcing that we can expect 90 exclusive titles and more than 50 PSone classics coming to the service this year.
As previously reported, Final Fantasy VII hits the PSN today, with more titles expected to be announced shortly.
There are currently 24 million users on the PSN across 55 countries, including 11 million users in North America who've downloaded some 475 million pieces of content thus far.
To quote: Today Jack Tretton has announced during Sony's E3 conference that they will be bringing over fifty PSOne Classics to the PlayStation Store this year, starting today with the release of Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII on the store.
Some of these titles are Capcom games, as Capcom has previously stated they are bringing more PSone Classics to the PlayStation Store.
237w ago - Advent Children Complete, the original film, clocked in around an hour and a half... and now Square Enix crammed in nearly another half hour worth of fights, beckstory, and explanations.
To quote: The film had a message for its fans, one that makes the film worth watching.
Final Fantasy VII has been with us for 13 years, four games, several soundtracks, and thousands upon thousands of cosplayers. Innumerable pages of fanfiction and doujinshi have been written, ranging from jaw-dropping art to plots that induce self-mutilation. And it still continues. Just like the people of Midgar.
Even after the near-cataclysmic events of the game, two years later the people of Midgar are back to their daily lives, falling into the same old cycles, and perpetuating life as it used to be.
But their past actions have paralyzed them, focusing their energy towards curing Geostigma, a mysterious affliction that is spreading like leprosy amongst the people, and as a result, the rest of the city remains largely ignored. Construction is at a crawl as Shinra tries to cure the plague - something that they are at fault for, and ultimately to save their own butt, as the president is infected.
Cloud, too, is paralyzed by the past. Not only is he infected with the Geostigma, which gives him flashbacks...
243w ago - Cloud and Sephiroth are ready to duke it out again, this time in a Blu-ray exclusive extended version of Advent Children.
To quote: The US release will be ready on June 2nd, and will feature full 1080p video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio in English, Japanese and French.
Unlike the Japanese release, the US release will include a plethora of subtitle options: English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Arabic and Dutch.
In addition, the previously rumored extra features turned out to be real:
• "Legacy of Final Fantasy VII" Featurette
• "Reminiscence of Final Fantasy VII" Original Story Digest
• "Reminiscence of Final Fantasy VII Compilation" Story Digest
• On the Way to a Smile - Episode: Denzel Animated Film
• Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Trailers
• Exclusive Sneak Peek at Final Fantasy XIII
We're hoping the "exclusive sneak peek" will be playable, as it is in Japan, but we're not holding our breath.
