For those of you who don't know yet, apparently, Square Enix said that they would really consider producing a Final Fantasy HD Collection, a collection of Final Fantasy games reformated in HD glory, if the fans' voice was strong enough for one. Here's part of the actual quote from Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of Final Fantasy:
We haven’t made up our mind about that yet, but if there was a strong voice coming through from the users asking for such porting, then obviously we would seriously consider it, but no actual plans yet.
Giving that the Wii U will be a high-definition platform, and given Square Enix's recently expressed interest in the Wii U, it seems there would be a good chance of getting, first, such a collection to be produced, and second, for such a collection to be ported to the Wii U (quite possibly even around launch time next year--who knows?)
Anyways, I'm starting a petition page called "Operation Moogle," in the spirit of Operation Rainfall (Google it if you never heard of it). I'm open to suggestions for this petition page and ideas towards promoting it. If we make enough noises, guys, we just might get heard!

Okay, so far, I'm going with a WordPress page. It's got an easier way to set up a petition page, and plus you can use your Gravatars for any comments you may leave (just in case you may wanna change them to a Final Fantasy avatar--just for style points).
Also, to make this effort even better, since they may hear our voice anyways, I'm thinking maybe we should feature a poll on the site as well as to voting on the top Final Fantasy games we would like to see in the collection. Since we wouldn't really know how much of a collection they would compile, we'll just list all the console games and leave the polls to show the top-voted ones. That way, if Square Enix DOES happen to catch sight of our site, they'll know what surefire wins they can include from this voice. I mean, it doesn't make sense to NOT put our favorites into the collection. This dream collection = our wallets handed to them. (We can even let them know that on the page!)
I think we'll keep the page simple, but still feature the petition page, a news updates pages, and the poll. Anyways, I'll be working on setting up a page. Please feel free to toss your suggestions out there. This is OUR revolution! (Sorry--my inner rebel's kicking in there!)
