Yeah there you go fans. This is the closest we're ever gonna get to a full remake. The way higher requirements than the original pc version suggest that the graphics are certainly being enhanced and hopefully we're gonna get the real soundtrack instead of the MIDI crap in the original pc version. There's also achievements and cloud saves. I never got the original pc version because of how they butchered the soundtrack but i might get this.
The minimum system requirements are: Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 (32/64-bit) 2GHz Processor or faster 1GB RAM DirectX 9-compatible graphic card

I never played FF7 before, so I'll probably pick this up.
Port or not, It'll be nice to finally play this game for myself. I never got to play this game due to lack of interest and a lack of a PS1 at the time... I lack a PS1 or 2 at the moment, but at least I finally have a way to play it that's not through an emulator.
Final Fantasy VII has aged about as smoothly as Solid Snake, so I really couldn't care less. Give me a remake with some decent visuals, a completely rewritten script, and a remastered soundtrack, or I'm not interested. Believe it or not, LEGO people and "this guy are sick" aren't going to cut it in this day and age, even if it does have "cloud saves" and a win button.

Ugh. It's not like Final Fantasy series is known for being hard in the first place.
