FFVII PC Released & Pulled
The PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII was released last night and was subsequently pulled just hours later.
The re-release is being released exclusively via Square Enix’s site. For some reason I can’t put my finger on, they decided not to release it on Steam or any other digital distribution services. Releasing for $11.99, it came out yesterday but has since been pulled. According to one user, it is a result of the game’s DRM:
“After installation, it asks you to enter your serial for it to connect and unlock the game for you. I entered my serial, it connected to the license server, and it tells me my activation failed and my serial was invalid. I did it manually with my serial and unlock code, and still nothing. I paid $12.70 for something that doesn’t work. Perhaps you could flip the ‘on’ switch, SE? Thanks”
