Bah! Japan got a demo of Final Fantasy XIII with their blu-rays and all we get is a trailer? Square Enix loves to screw over its fans outside of Japan. However I'm a big Final Fantasy VII fan and I enjoyed the original cut so I'll be picking this up. I hope the new scenes are more character development and not just more action. Its sure to look great in HD.
