It's a PS4 timed exclusive till March 2021, if they stick to that, so that's unfortunate. I am also not sure how I feel paying full price for 1/3 (give or take) of the original game - granted they're apparently adding additional content for all three releases.
Too early to say with certainty if it's a rip off or not. They've been working on this remaster since what, 2006? 13 years of work. It's a bit much to ask them to price each third of the game at $20 so they add up to $60 when all three components are out when they've put in over a decade of investment and tens of thousands of man-hours. From the footage I've seen, this is no simple remaster, it's a remake in a new engine with all-new assets, all-new art, new music, voice acting, new battle systems, new areas. It's like an entirely new game based on a familiar tale.SOME
people have paid full price for each of Tomb Raider 2013, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the third of which completed the story arc of the reboot trilogy. I mean I paid $5 for the first, bought the second at steep discount, and don't intend to play the third. If those can be viewed as stand-alone titles worthy of full price on-release, who's to say the FF7 Remake components aren't also worth that if they each have 30-60 hours of gameplay in each?
