Sometimes the rumor mill turns out to be right.

While Microsoft gave a fantastic E3 presentation today, Sony had a few wonderful surprises of their own. Among these surprises was that Final Fantasy VII was in fact getting the remake treatment.

Xbox gamers are not necessarily left out in the cold here. Announced for PC and as a timed exclusive for PS4, the adventures of Cloud, Tifa, Barret and the fate of Aerith will most likely end up on Xbox One as well after the exclusivity period expires. Regardless of what platforms get this remake, this writer is simply happy that the game is being updated as the current Steam version looks like puke on an HD laptop screen.
