Fresh off the biggest trolling in video game history, Square Enix has announced that the upcoming PS4 port of Final Fantasy VII will cost sixteen dollars.

For comparison, that's about $1 more than your average digital title—or $4 less than Square's own newly-released Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris—and about 1/4 the price of a full retail game, which usually costs $60.

Final Fantasy VII is currently $12 on Steam and just $10 on the PlayStation Network for PS3, Vita, and PSP. This PS4 release will be a port of the Steam version.

Reasonable? Too expensive? I'll let you be the judge of that one. What's worrying me is that if Square is creating a new ecosystem for PS4 ports like this, we might never see PS1 Classics brought to the PlayStation 4, which would be a serious shame.

DISCUSSION

It's pretty ridiculous that there isn't PSOne Classic support on the PS4 yet. It should be totally trivial for the PS4 to run Sony's emulator for it that the PS3 and Vita both use.
