Final Fantasy 7 On The iPhone?

Yeah, you heard that right. Everyone's favorite console game of the late 90's has been emulated for the 3GS. While no one's come out with a perfect way to jailbreak the 3GS yet, some enterprising folks have managed get GBA and PSX emulators running on the new smartphone. 9-to-5 Mac has a video of Final Fantasy 7 in action on the 3GS, and promises that other emulators are also running “close to native”.

From what I can see, the FF7 emulator looks pretty much perfect right now. The on-screen controller takes up an annoying amount of space, but it looks fairly intuitive. The gameplay is very smooth and the graphics look great on the iPhone. I can think of few better ways to pass time than by having the full version of FF7 loaded on a smartphone.

If you're interested in figuring out how to get your iPhone set up to play this, you can check out the rough guide here. The fellow who figured it out is charging ten bucks (note that he is not selling the game or the bios, only the instructions on how to get the emulator working) to get you set up and good to go. You'll have to send him an email with your full device ID too. If you're up to jumping through those hoops, please send us an email and let us know how the set up went.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
