Final Fantasy VII PC trailer, screens do nothing for me

I'm pretty pumped about the PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII, but today's accompanying asset bundle does absolutely nothing for me. In my mind I'm picturing a lovely up-rezzed remake that will make my NVIDIA cards sing, but I know that's probably not what we're going to be getting. It's that part of me that looks at this trailer and these boring screenshots and feels underwhelmed.

I mean, the cutscenes are going to look like they did on the PlayStation back in 1997. While I have a soft spot for all the scenes shown in this trailer, they haven't aged well. I guess it will fit nicely with the newer, unwritten PC gaming rule that says that cutscenes must always look worse than the game footage. 

And these screenshots -- haven't we seen these 1,000 times? Let's see something new!

The game will run with 1GB of RAM and a 2Ghz processor, so I know I have my hopes (and specs) set too high. Hey, at least there's cloud saves. Cloud? Get it? 

Final Fantasy VII is being released to celebrate the franchise's 25th anniversary, says Square Enix. Low-resolution (and spec) or not, I'm still excited.
