If only I didn't despise the PC version of FFVII this would be a great deal.

Already own it but good deal for ff7 on pc if anyone is feeling nostalgic. Agree with the others though, you should put digital in the title.

If only it didn't have really shitty DRM.

They should have put it on Steam, not sure what the hell they were thinking there.

does ff7 require a constant internet connection to play it or is it just a one time registration thing?

You need to read their support forums before buying FF7 and decide from there if you want it or not.

I remember reading that it did AND that on top of that it's got Securom with a limited number of activations.

Spoiler


Except that Steam has millions and millions of users and they don't. Even if their profit per sale is higher they aren't going to get anywhere near the volume they would get by selling it on Steam.

If they think a slightly spruced up version of a 15 year old game that they slapped in overly restrictive DRM into is enough of a flagship to bring people to their store and their service on its own I think they are in for a rude awakening.

Nothing to ship.... it's digital!? I'd be more worried about the DRM than DR.

It's that price per item that's the problem. The whole motivation for creating origin is that EA didn't want to pay steam service charges and they didn't want steam sales "devaluing" their games. Same likely holds true here. People that are short sighted and looking at the short term profits. Same things that are holding back digital movie rentals.

Edit: It's a 15 year old game that's still in relatively high demand (for 15 year old games). Don't underestimate the power of old men milking IP *cough* George Lucas *cough*

There have been issues with Digital River and digital game transactions like them not giving out the game keys when they were supposed to etc but yeah I think the bigger long term concern here would be the DRM.

Thankfully, most of the popular independent digital PC game stores don't use Digital River but most of the publisher based ones like Square, Ubisoft, THQ etc still use them unfortunately.

Square Eidos still sells a shit ton of PC games through Steam and they apparently do so well there that they've pretty much made all their other titles in the last few years Steamworks. It cuts down on the cost of upkeep for cloud save and what not too.

Still not seeing their logic here and I'd love to see the numbers but if you're convinced their making a mint on this old FF game with crappy DRM on their obscure site and putting it on Steam would put them in the poor house, so be it.

I still find it funny that they felt the need to cover their 15 year old game in anti theft software. Like it hasn't been available in hacked form for years. (Including mods to improve and update the graphics) Once again a company treats it's customers like criminals and wonders why they're not making the sales numbers they should be.

All solid facts. In that case I'm not sure. I'm also not sure why they didn't just redirect some effort into graphical upgrades either.

edit: actually FF isn't steam works so it's probably just their little group that's making that decision but that's just a guess.
