Games "On January 31st, 1997, Final Fantasy VII was released to the Japanese public. This single game both revolutionized and raised the bar of Japanese style console role playing games. It success was so staggering, it placed Squaresoft firmly on top the the the genre, displacing the Dragon Quest series created by the rival Enix company. The story of how this game came to be has a story more expansive than the game itself. It starts, as most stories do, with it's prequel." An insanely detailed - although missing certain parts, here and there - look at Final Fantasy VII's engine. As in, 211 pages detailed. You might want to grab a coffee.

The CD-i add on was a flop, Nintendo broke its deal with Sony and jumped into bed with Phillips, but some how Sony was to blame...

If Nintendo hadn't done what it did, there wouldn't have been a playstation so I am kind of glad they broke the deal / pissed off Sony.

Nintendo selected the cartridge as it thought it superior / more rugged. Nintendo tends to aim its consoles at the younger market.

look at the wii with its gimped dvd's, I guess Sony were to blame for them selecting that format as well.

What about the current wii-u again Sony blocking them from adding a bluray player ?
