SONY PSP PREVIEW: FINAL FANTASY VII: ADVENT CHILDREN

Sony's new PSP is more than just a system to play games and as we start to learn more that is becoming more apparent. Case in point Final Fantasy VII Advent Children. This will be a full-length CGI movie and released on the new UMD disc format. It's still unknown if this will be an exclusive title to the PSP or not since there was already plans to release this to DVD. While we cannot confirm or deny the reports we can show you some great screen shots taken from the full-length movie.

Sony has made it clear they want the PSP to be more than a handheld game machine. They also want it to be a multimedia and entertainment center all in one. According to the details we have on the PSP right now the PSP battery will last about 2.5 hours when used to watch movies. It would make sense since the PSP will be able to produce great HDTV like images with no skipping or pauses to read the data on the UMD disc. For the die-hard fans of the FF series this maybe exciting news and Sony is trying very hard to promote the movie as well. It has been showcased at several film festivals which is definitely a first for any gaming system.

This is not a game and as far as we know there are no interactive aspects. Just pop in the disc and watch the movie. However, there have been rumors of a new Final Fantasy title in the works for the PSP that will be a role-playing game and as soon as we can confirm this and get the details we will write a preview. It may be a great option for those on a long trip or to entertain the kids. It certainly looks better than the current GBA movie carts from Majesco. Take a look at the screen shots and decide for yourself.
