Pre-Order Crisis Core: FFVII, Get a Shinra UMD Case

shinraumdcase1-1.jpgI haven’t heard of any special freebies for pre-ordering games since Christmas, so it kind of figure the first one of the year has to do with a Final Fantasy title. Right now, if you pre-order Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII at Amazon.com, EBGames, Game Crazy, or GameStop, you’ll snag a free Shinra UMD case. Then you’ll have all the protection you need for your future purchase in the form of a flimsy plastic contraption. Or you could use it to store your vast collection of UMD movies, which will surely go on to become the standard in video distribution.

You know, if I wasn’t convinced the game would be utter crap, I’d preorder it.

Wow weclock, are you serious? Any little credibility you had has totally gone out the door my friend.

“vast collection of UMD movies, which will surely go on to become the standard in video distribution.”

Well in terms of handheld movies it is the standard media isnt it? I dont see too many studios releasing on SD cards or USB stick so what else is the standard for handheld movies?

Norbit there is no standard handheld movie format because every1 just converts to mp4 and sticks on their ipods or memory sticks, so any format trying for the handheld market just gets slaughtered as ppl just torrent and convert instead and as a result saving fossil fuels and saving the planet

@ Daniel

MP4 is a file format not a media type. When is the last time you walked into a shop and saw an MP4 hollywood film on the shelf? Admittedly you wont see many UMDs either but that’s not the point. If I look on Amazon to buy a film to watch on my portable device what choice do I have?

1) UMD
1) Nothing else

I tried buying an MP4 film on there but all I could find were UMDs;

Sure you can download films elsewhere on MP4 and load it onto something else but that isnt exactly what you would call a standard is it.

@ Shadowmancer

I dont think you understand my point. UMD IS the standard for handheld movie watching because it is the ONLY standard media format you can buy for doing it. It hasn’t been a success but that doesn’t change the fact that it is the standard.

I had what? Credibility?

Christ, to think I’d pass judgement on a game before it came out..
