    At the Sony PlayStation 4 press conference, Gaikai's Dave Perry seemed to confirm the rumors that the system would not be backwards compatible with PS3 games, but Sony has big plans to allow users access to the PlayStation back catalog.

  • Blog Post: Final Fantasy VII And VIII Nearly Released On Steam

    True story: My first playthrough of Final Fantasy VII was entirely done on PC. Square Enix isn't known for having a great PC support for its Japanese releases, but FF VII and VIII both received somewhat rough but workable PC versions.

    Sometimes on Replay, we pull out and revisit old classics. Sometimes we pick out games that we know are terrible. And sometimes, we stumble across anomalies in the Vault that begs to be explained. This week is the latter. While digging through GI's massive game collection, I came across a copy of... More
