VII is now in the Steam store. Allegedly, FFVIII is also going to be coming soon.

This is something that people might not remember anymore, but Final Fantasy VII had a PC release alongside the PS1 version. It's the one I played through.

This Steam edition is an improved version of the existing PC release, which allows it to run on modern computers without hassle. You're basically getting the same game; the graphics weren't improved or anything, but they added achievements and a cloud-based saving system. I'm assuming that the upcoming VIII will follow the same pattern. I wouldn't expect to see IX show up, though, as that one didn't get a PC version back in the day.

That one was just a port released later on, right?

I haven't played VII myself. I've only completed a bunch of non-numerical FF games (besides I in Dawn of Souls) and played through parts of a handful of numerical ones (III, IV, V, VI, and iirc X). With how much the first six have been ported, I wonder if any of them will end up on PC Digital Distribution as well.

It wasn't released at the same moment, but it was close enough for me not to be aware of the delay. This was before most people compared release dates on the Internet and complained about a few months! The PC version itself wasn't much different from the original, except that it had higher-res 3D models (640x480!) and lower quality soundtrack (MIDI!).

Square appears to be making a push toward the PC, with hints that more titles from the series could be making the jump. I'd like to see that happen.

I hear it's got always on DRM, which makes sense, since I don't know how else they're going to maintain the materia auction house.

Ha ha yeah, no thanks.

Must have FF8 for Steam.

Always on DRM for a game that is SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD?
