Final Fantasy VII PC Released and Pulled

A PC edition of Final Fantasy VII was available for sale briefly over the weekend, but was quickly pulled, and those who were able to purchase the game were not able to get it to play, reports Joystiq by way of the SQUARE ENIX Forums. Users were unable to get the game to authenticate, leading to speculation that this was a DRM error, but a subsequent post on MCV says they've learned that "the title was is not yet ready and was simply released prematurely," saying they learned this from "a company dealing with the situation."

The original PC release was bug filled? Really? I must have played it oh I dunno 40 or 50 times and never came across a bug, outside of the same bugs that existed on the PS platform. Besides the game looks much better with the bootleg version, besides that? Meh. Shitty? It wasn't any shittier than the PS version.

But I can't quite figure out where or why they want to put DRM on a 13 or is it 14 year old game.

Yes, it had severe issues with the graphics card (dont remember exactly which one) we owned at the time it was released ("3d accelerators" were still pretty new to pc's then though). I remember video playback being *majorly* messed up as well, with the background videos sometimes going completely black (particularly in the hybrid 3d/fmv scenes) Chocobo racing would crash randomly (good reminder to save frequently though!)

And yes, the game was obviously playable from beginning to end (40-50 times!? lol) but claiming that it is as good as or any better than the PSX version just tells me that you probably didn't play it on that platform.

The massive degradation in the FMV alone is reason enough to steer clear of the awful Eidos PC port.
