FFXV? Are we living on the same planet? That seems to be almost the only thing Final Fantasy fans are excited about right now, apart from the ones playing ARR.

Can't quibble with some of the rest of your post though

In the case of Capcom and their reluctance to put out Mega Man titles, I speculate that this has to do with a company-wide impression that Mega Man belongs to Keiji Inafune. Nobody within the company feels like they have the right to touch it (SPOILER) (if only that had been the case back when production on Mega Man X6 began, UGH).

As for Square not giving us an FFVII remake, the leading figures just don't feel confident that the final product would be good enough. I can respect that. Judging by the games Square has released in recent years, I don't think they have what it takes for an FFVII remake. They are not ready yet. It's just sad when Kitase has to speak his delusional "10-year process" nonsense. =/

After all these years most people are past excitement I think.

Hard to get excited about the constant cockteasing and no matter how good the game is, it will never justify the ridiculous wait.

too bad they didn't feel that way about Devil May Cry before inflicting that atrocity of a reboot on us

well, I can't deny that the huge delay on FFXV has dampened people's enthusiasm for it Still, more people seem to be looking forward to it than not

a) What Omega said.
b) If they truly feel that way, why don't they just give Inafune the rights to Mega Man so he can make his own Mega Man games? (Which he's doing anyway, I know, I'm just saying.)

As to the rehashed rumor - Octo, Omega, et. al.: Sorry, I know it's annoying to hear about the next rehashed hoax, but I feel like as an FF7 site we'd be remiss to not ridiculeacknowledge them. Like I said, we should just have a stickied thread for all the remake rumors, lol.

Better to keep a money-making IP around *in case* they get their balls back.

I speculate policies get in the way of a humble act such as a company giving the rights to a single individual. Isn't the rights to a franchise usually something that is bought, btw? I doubt Inafune is rich enough to buy Mega Man.

But again. Speculation, speculation.

Honestly the whole concept of "This person is the director and this person head that department and blah blah blah" isn't really a concept in the gaming world of yesteryear. Back in the early NES and partially SNES days, developers weren't people of interest. You got your name in the credits, but otherwise you didn't really have the creative ownership and cult of personality. You made the game for the company you worked for, and the company took full credit for it.

It wasn't till Miyamoto came around and changed the game for everyone, although it was still a hard sell in Japanese game development, as opposed to say western game developers on PCs. Even now companies tend to hold onto their IPs with that mentality. Hence the big drama between Konami and Kojima.
