    Noooo? You mean I paraphrased for the sake of exaggerating your attitude? You're just full of straws today, huh?

    Does it actually register the GBA as a controller? :O

    I'm not really a fan of using either a wrapper or OS emulation just to play a game that probably won't even play right.

    I understand where he's coming from, but licensing shouldn't be as big of an issue as they make it out to be. Especially since the market on PC is there. Assuming they don't cheap out on the port like they did with Chrono Trigger or even the newer releases of older FF titles.

    Ugh. I was hoping to play it on PC...

    I'd rather not, but I guess that means I'll be getting it on Switch. I'm excited either way, I just would have preferred PC.

    Licensing is one thing, but you also need to take into consideration on whether or not it's worth it for SE to put the game on PC/Xbox. If we look at the sales numbers for PC compare to other platforms for mainline FF games, according to vgsales, PC platform don't sell at well as other platforms.

    Since you mentioned that, you should also mentioned the release dates to some of the other mainline FF games for PC. If we are only counting mainline FF games and excluding the MMO ones such as FF XI and FF XIV, FF 8 was released on 2000, and we haven't seen any mainline FF games released for PC until 2014 (when FF III was put on Steam). Here's a list of all the FF games with release dates and platforms.

    Xbox is not too much different to PC when it comes to mainline FF games release.

    It's still possible for SE to release this game to PC and Xbox at a much later date, but don't expect them to do so anytime soon.

    Right. Low sales numbers would be a key factor. It is what it is, I guess. If they do bring this title to PC, I hope it's not far in the future.

    Let's be realistic, this is not a triple a game. Does not make sense to release it on Xbox when Xbox has the lowest player base out of all consoles. Windows will get a release later on.

    I feel like this was a game that was not hotly anticipated to be remastered. I certainly have no interest in it. I had the Wii one and you couldn't even play the damn game in full screen if anyone remembers that.

    Does this include local/offline multiplayer, or is this server-dependent?

    I blame that on the fact that they used the DS version as the base. Crystal Chronicles on the gamecube was quite the experience.

    To be honest, I'd be alright if they skipped Xbox entirely. :rofl2:

    I honesty hope this is an actual remaster and not a stealth sequel.

    Nobody said it wasn't. Nobody had a PC that could run it, either.

    Wait, if the Moogle Houses give you skins in the Remaster... Does that mean they removed the Wagon Racing Minigame? :o
