While I'm not sure if gog is the place for legacy console games, it's worth pointing out that console emulators are available at the windows store so I expect that they are legal or the manufacturers of the original hardware don't care about them anymore. It would also be nice to play these old games legally, ( I assume that the roms you can download for free are still under copyright) selling these games for $0.79ish could increase website traffic and create revenue for developers from intelectual property that is essentially worthless.
All of you people that are against this request, at which point exactly did you decide that GOG is all about PC games and where exactly did you read/learn about it? I am just saying...
why the hell is this wish still alive lol :D
Emulating the SNES or PSX version would also require the consent of the hardware rights holder, especially with the PSX, where BIOS ROMs would be required. A PC port is possible, of course, but I think it would be more appropriate to port beg Square Enix for this... and only beg GOG to try and strike a deal once such a port exists! It is unlikely that they would release such a thing DRM-free.
While I love Chrono Trigger, this doesn't belong on gog
Not that I wouldn't be interested if this was released on GoG, it's just that you guys shouldn't wait for something that most likely won't happen to happen so that you can play CT on a PC.
If I wanted to play Chrono Trigger, I'd get the DS Port. If I wanted to play it on a big screen, I'd get the PS1 version. If I wanted to play it on a PC, I'd get the PS1 version and emulate it. It really isn't that hard to do any of these things, or at least, not as hard as I imagine getting Square Enix to port Chrono Trigger to the PC would be.
This game IS also on Playstation, just for all you people saying SNES this and SNES that :p
Why are ridiculous wishes like this not removed? Nearly 6000 people signing for a game that was NEVER released on PC? There really needs to be some moderation around here...
It isn't a pc game!
Another game i wish to play on pc. Simply, this game was amasing.
I'm pretty sure GOG does not port games themselves. You need to try to get someone to make a PC version. Then GOG would likely talk to them about releasing it here. There is no way, even if Square would allow it, that the SNES version will be sold by GOG. Even though emulators are currently legal, the battle with Nintendo would cost a lot of money, and might actually result in SNES emulators becoming illegal (since Nintendo has their own that they use for the Virtual Console.)
LOL, over 5000 votes for a SNES game on a site that distributes PC games.
Wow, my favorite turn based rpg ever on pc. Who knew?
Yes, I *can* fire up an emulator with a rom, but I would like to purchase it.
if you want to play it on the pc so bad fire up zsnes, or psX, or that ds emulator....
I'm surprised to see so many people upset about this one. It's an odd duck for sure, but it's not like you see mario climbing the wall. First this game was on SNES and then the unthinkable happened, and it leaped to PS1. Now there's a DS, iOS, and Android version. And when there's an android version, and the property floats around like this people see it as viable to get. That all said, I don't think GOG will do it. Not for quite a while at least. A straight port of the Android version would likely suck because you'd have to do everything with the mouse and left click. People would crucify it as the worst version of Chrono Trigger. Seeing as how it'd have to be reworked, I'd say don't get your hopes up. Buy on your phones/ds/wii/old console whatever, and just emulate it. You'll have buttons that way, and it'll be fine.
Why does this have so many votes?
Sorry, but this game won't ever be coming to GoG
It's not a PC game. Why on earth would it come to GOG?
It's hard to believe GoG would get this game to work on PC, although I haven't heard of the android release. But if they do, I'm going to cry out of sheer happiness.
God I wish there was a way to report these stupid requests. Or at least downvote them.
Well not talking about the spam under my comment, it is very plausible for there to be a Chrono Trigger pc port and work very well but… How Square Enix is now'a'days its probably not going to happen over legal stuff. Well there is FFVI on here. I'm saying it would be amazing but don't get your hopes "too high".
Chrono Trigger isn't on the PC, so this is pretty useless until there's a PC Port(Or if GOG start adding Console Games via Emulators, which is unlikely).
This game is on Android for goodness sake. No reason for there to not be a PC version.
If it starts becoming possible to snatch the best console titles of yesteryear and somehow put them on GoG, I would love it. It shouldn't be pc only titles if they have the capability to get console titles of worth too.
I would love to see this.
-1, good game, bad fit for GOG. It's available virtually everywhere: iOS, Android, PlayStation Plus, NDS, PSX, etc. If you really had to get in your PC, no one's going to flame you for emulating, but it begs the question: why would you want to support SE on the PC when you can be price gouged elsewhere?
As for emulators and roms, some people don't like the illegality problem and the viruses that come with them.
Alright, after sitting down and reading my own comment....
yeah, this is a really, really odd request...
also, slightly silly. GOG was made for hard to find PC titles... I actually took my vote back.
I'm not saying I don't ever want to see games like Chrono Trigger on GOG ever, I'm saying that there are other, more reasonable requests that are being ignored for stuff like this. For example, the request to play games on emulators and for GOG to put up this game has more votes than LOST EDEN. Games like LE is the reason why I made a GOG account in the first place. Also, this isn't even that hard of a game to find, just get it for DS if you really want to play it.
Come on, people, this is for rare PC games, not classic SNES games...
Please, consider people like me who have been dying to play a flawless game from their childhood THAT WAS ACTUALLY ON PC. If you want to play chrono trigger on your PC so badly, just go to cool roms.....
Yeah, it's probably a bad idea, but people who know me best will say that I never back down from a bad idea.
Sure, it sounds silly, but maybe this is the kick in the pants the creative team needs to make more installments.
While GOG was built for for hard-to-find-legal-copies of PC games, does that mean we can never have a classic console game, ever?
Just because you think it sounds silly, doesn't make it silly to everyone else, pal.
I would happily get an official, yes-its-going-to-work-with-a-minimum-of-fuss port of Chrono Trigger.
Chiming in the odd dare to hope that CT hits GoG... even if it is kind of unnecessary, and quite unlikely. CT remains, for me, a classic gem of 16-bit gaming. The music was unforgettable; the characters and plot were captivating and charming unto themselves; and, the detail that went into the game, was difficult to mimic. As was possible by the "Dream Team."
Since there's no official PC release, i really don't think it'll happen. More likely than not, someone has to bribe Square-Enix into porting this game.
Available for SNES in used game shops, easily emulated, re-released for a Playstation version, and even released for Nintendo DS not that long ago. This is one of my favorite games of all time, but there is no reason whatsoever for it to be on this list.
I love Chrono Trigger, but there are plenty of ports for this game. I think GOG should target harder to find pc titles.
How has this got over 2000 votes?
I'm personally finding it quite sad that there is such vitriol against consoles that people take to namecalling, labelling voters as spammers and "unrealistic".
This is a wishlist. If people want GOG to release console games, this is the place to express that wish. If you're not interested, don't vote for it - vote for what you want. It really is sad that people feel the need to actually try and derail a wishlist thread.
Square Enix hasn't abandoned the game, they simply refuse to continue the series until all the original creative team work together on it at that team's request. There's no way SE would let this happen -- they still make money by reissuing the game every other generation, and they make a lot of it.
It's been said. Great game. Bad idea.
Great game. Bad idea.
Does anyone who's voting for this seriously think that Square-Enix would allow a DRM-free release of a game that sells really well no matter what they dump it out on?
It's always about the DRM-free for GOG, and the packaged ROM + Emulator with no DRM is unlikely to say the least. I understand there's demand, but it should be tempered with the understanding of corporate greed.
I don't like this. People should make realistic requests.
"These requests shows that there is demand."
... So if I add a wish for a pony, and 400 people vote it up, does that mean GOG should get into animal husbandry? ;p Creating new, nonexistent PC games from console games is just as irrelevant to GOG's mission. If Square can justify porting their C# iOS games to PC, GOG will probably be on the list of vendors they offer it to.
This is one game that could actually be properly ported to PC with the right backing. Square has repeatedly shown its lack of interest in the series true, but if pitched correctly having a proper PC port in the vein of the lazy Final Fantasy VII "remake with cheats" could actually work!
not just Chrono Trigger. Chrono Trigger plus rom hacks being made legal. And also everyone should totally get their own pet unicorn.
I really, really don't want this. Chrono Trigger is a good game and all, but GOG is a site for old PC games. It's bad enough that now most of this site's releases are forgettable adventure games from 2006, and generic retro-inspired indie games - I really don't want the visit the site every Tuesday and Thursday to find the new release is a ROM bundled with an emulator for $9.99.
I can imagine the publishers porting fully legal roms as cheap downloads.
Look at Sega: they re-released their old Genesis/Megadrive line-up via "Sega Genesis Classics Series" for PC and iOS. And, when you take a good look at it, it functions ALOT like an emulator; every time you buy a 10 game volume or a single game it goes right into the same app with the other games. But instead of ".md/smd" roms, they're PAK files. But...just like an emulator.
I can see Square-Enix or Konami doing this with some of their back catalogues. S-E could port Chrono Trigger and FF1 thru FF6 to an emulator sort of app for PC and Mac. Hell, I can see Konami bringing their old Genesis offerings (Castlevania Bloodlines, Contra Hard Corps) to SGCS.
These requests shows that there is demand. This could be useful when paired with all other collected data to see if want correlates with sales. The worst thing that happens is nothing, by asking for these games we may eventually end up with a company releasing a PC port of something that we may have never received in a legal manner otherwise.
Again, just download an emulator and play it, or play one of the many ports. Such as on itunes.. stop spamming GOG with these silly requests.
