As many people Final Fantasy VII are is set to be released for the PS4 sometime in the near future. While Final Fantasy VII Remake looks like its going to be a PS4 exclusive there are many who are anxious to see this game on other consoles such as the Xbox One X. The Xbox One X is set to be released next month on November 7th and as of right there are not too many exclusive titles on that particular game console. In fact many people are likely to have more Xbox One games or downloadable titles from Xbox Live for the Xbox One X.
While it would be exciting to see the Final Fantasy VII Remake One the Xbox One X the game will probably have more success in the long run if it remained exclusive for the PS4. After all, the original Final Fantasy VII game had managed to sell over 9 million units worldwide back in 1997 as a PS1 exclusive. Making the Final Fantasy VII Remake a PS4 exclusive will only add to the value of the game.
It would have been very interesting to see Final Fantasy 8 and 9 on the Sega Dreamcast back in the late 90’s. During the Final Fantasy series was very popular especially after the momentum that the series had following the success of Final Fantasy 7 on the PS1. Also, the Sega Dreamcast was probably at its peak in popularity during the late 90’s while having superior gameplay and graphics in comparison to the PS1.
However, Square Enix seemed like they were have ton of success when Final Fantasy 7 soared in popularity in 1997. At that point switching over from the PS1 to the Sega Dreamcast would not make to much sense. Also, Square Enix had decided to work more with Sony opposed to Nintendo way before the Sega Dreamcast was released in 1998. Even if Final Fantasy 8 & 9 was released for the Sega Dreamcast it would be hard to predict how well the game would do in terms of sales.
Over the years we have seen many cool crossover over video games that featured the Marvel vs Capcom series along with games such as Tekken vs Street Fighter, J Stars Victory VS along with many other 2D and 3D titles for various game systems including PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and others. While the Marvel vs Capcom series has been quite impressive for over the past decade many people are interested in seeing a Marvel vs DC title in the future.
A Marvel vs DC Universe game would defy turn the heads of many people who are long time fans of the older games and the comic book series for the past couple of decades. While the idea of developing a Marvel vs DC Universe game sounds great in theory it would be hard to imagine how it would play out in practice. Multiple things would have to be taken into consideration when developing a Marvel vs DC Universe game such as the plot, characters included along with many other things. As of right now a Marvel vs DC game is unlikely to happen in the near future but it would definitely be something that millions of gamers would pay to see.
Ever since the SNES Classic was released in late September of 2017 the retro based game console had managed to exceed the expectations of many worldwide in terms of sales. It has been reported that the SNEE Classic has managed to sell over 368,000 within the first four days of its release which is more than the Nintendo Switch has done in a week during its first week.
The Nintendo Switch had only managed to sell over 330,000 units worldwide during its first week following its release in early March 2017 and has now reached over 2.5 million units in terms of worldwide sales. If anything the nostalgia of retro video game titles may have played a significant factor in the SNES Classic selling more than the Nintendo Switch.
Not only were many old school games attracted to the SNES Classic but the console featured classics such as Mega Man X, Star Fox, F-Zero, Secret of Mana and others for on $80 plus tax. Also, most of the games on the SNES Classic are often hard to find in used video game stores in general which usually forces people to buy these titles on eBay or Amazon. As of right now it’s a little tough to predict how much the SNES will sell worldwide within a year. But at the current rate that the SNES Classic is flying off the shelfs in electronic retail stores cross countries like Japan and America it would be safe to expect at least one million units worldwide before September 2018.
The Legend of Zelda: Between Worlds is probably one of the best handheld titles in the series in regards to handheld game systems. Zelda: Link Between Worlds was impressive and it managed to sell over 2.5 million units worldwide within five min of its release. If Zelda: Link Between Worlds was released for the Wii-U instead of the Nintendo 3DS there is no guaranteeing that the results would have been the same.
The Wii-U was considered to be a commercial failure in comparison to the Nintendo 3DS plus games like Zelda: Wind Waker HD was mainly the focus for the Wii-U at the time. If Zelda: Link Between Worlds was released for the Wii-U it may not have sod as much as it did in the long run.
When it comes down to NES Classics Ice Climbers is a title that many think in regards to video games from the 80’s. Ice Climbers is one of the few platform games that never received any type of SNES sequel. Some might argue that Ice Climbers was was over shadowed by countless platform titles such as Super Mario Bros, Castlevania, Mega Man, Adventure Island and others.
The whole concept of Ice Climbers was basic and involved passing through each level by going upwards instead of sideways like many other traditional 2D platformers. One of the cool things about Ice Climbers was that it was a multiplayer platform title that where two players could play simultaneously instead of taking terms unlike the Super Mario Bros Trilogy for the NES. Looking back at things now it would have been interesting to see what an Ice Climbers game would have looked like on the SNES or the Nintendo 64 especially since the landscape of gaming had started to dramatically evolve throughout the 90’s.
When it comes down to the musical genre of gaming Rock Band is one of the most popular video game industry next to the likes of Guitar Hero and Just Dance. While many people have been waiting for a new Guitar Hero game for quite some time there have been just as many people who want to see a Rock Band 5. In terms of popularity the Rock Band series has arguably declined in popularity.
When Rock Band 4 was released back in October 2015 the game failed to sell over one million units worldwide on the Xbox One and the PS4 separately. If we were to get a Rock Band 5 on the Nintendo Switch the key issues would be on whether or not the developers can make it work and whether or not there are any special features that would separate this game from Rock Band 4. As of right now it’s probably to soon for a Rock Band 5 since it has been about two years the release of Rock Band 4. But if there is a Rock Band 5 for the Switch console in the future it would be interesting to see how things would play out on the hybrid console.
