Forget Final Fantasy VII — eighth grade was all about Squall for me and nearly every other girl in my middle school. We thrived on his taciturn drama (so unwhiny, unlike Cloud!) and we worshipped mighty... uh, gunblade.
Anyway, you can get Final Fantasy VIII on PlayStation Network as of today. As in right now. As in, if you live in Japan and have access to PSN, seriously, what are you waiting for?
At Sony's Tokyo Game Show press conference, the title was confirmed as a download for PlayStation 3 and for the PSP. However, no American PSN store plans were announced.
