The upcoming PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII was accidentally made available for sale on Square Enix’s online store over the weekend, before being pulled very quickly.
But not before some people managed to buy the game, which led to some disappointed customers. Square Enix’s DRM protection wouldn’t let them actually play it, since its servers wouldn’t activate a game that wasn’t technically out, even if the customers had purchased the game legitimately.
