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."

I was working in a Software Etc. when FF7 PC came out and yes, there was really only one bug and a big one: Riva TNT cards (What we call nvidia nowadays I suppose in a way) would fail to show the proper animation for the Odin summon. That's all.

It was fixed in a patch.

The whole of the game was actually very bug free. The "bugs" came later when windows changed its kernel and everyone trying to run it in Windows XP saw that it crashed during the choboco race and prevented completion of the game.

You're really better off playing your PS1 copy on a legal emulator. (Legal so long as you own the game)

The real reason why anyone would want to buy this is for the achievements.

I personally have held off on re-playing FF7 for the better part of a decade in hopes that we would eventually get some solid DRM in the game.
