Many old Australian Final Fantasy fans, and some new, headed to the online Square-Enix website to buy Final Fantasy VII today on PC, only to find that they couldn't. Despite being available in almost every other country Australians, it seemed as though we were being geo-blocked from purchasing Final Fantasy VII.
We asked Square-Enix's local distributor why this was the case, and it looks as though it's a simple error.
"We’re looking into the issue now," said a spokesperson, "and will report back once we have an update from Square Enix Europe this evening."
As soon as we find out precisely why this happened, or if the problem is rectified, we'll let you know.
