Game Information | FFVII Technical Demo for the PS3

In past years, Square has provided console makers with technical demos to display the prowess of these manufacturers' latest gaming systems. For the Nintendo 64, a demo using imagery from FFVI was created, in anticipation of that console's then-upcoming game Final Fantasy VII (see this page for more info about the N64 FFVII). When the PlayStation 2 was unveiled, a tech demo recreating scenes from FFVIII was shown.

Most recently, at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Sony showed off their newest console, the super-slick PlayStation 3. As a part of Sony's press conference, a number of tech demos were shown, including one that was a remake of Final Fantasy VII's opening movie! Much to the disappointment of many, Square Enix representatives were quick to tell attendees that this FFVII demo was just that-- a demo-- and there would not be a remake of the game for the PS3.

What follows are a couple of screenshots from the Final Fantasy VII Technical Demo. Keep in mind that these images are not from an FMV; they were rendered in real-time by the PS3's Cell processor.
