Since they ported 1 and 2, even though they aren't as large as 7 would be

I think sony has some control over FF7. I wouldn't expect to see Cloud on anything but a Sony system.

Technically possible, yes. From a graphical standpoint, FF7 has lower character polygon counts than most iPhone games and all the FMV could easily be compressed using h.264 instead of the ancient PSone video formats that hogged most of the disc.

Hell, you can already run the game using emulators via jailbreak. It just runs shitty-

From a licensing standpoint, it's unlikely we'll ever see FF7 on a non-Sony platform for a very, very long time.

Yeah, my same thoughts, it's possible to do but not likely to occur

Wasn't therea PC version of FFVII? Couldn't they port that?

It was the same with Rayman where they ported the PC version instead of any of the console releases.

Well, you put it in bold, so it must be true.

Hoddap got it right: technically possible, but highly unlikely. Keep in mind that FF7 has not been officially ported to any platform (besides Windows back in '98). An actual, updated port (like FF 1 & 2) would most likely appear first on the PS3 or PSP.

Almost impossible not due to technical problems, but due to licensing and rights issues and whatnot.
