If you're a veteran gamer and Final Fantasy VII isn't in your collection, you may be in danger of having your gaming license revoked. But you can avoid all this if you just download it from the PSN.
We had heard whispers of the game heading to digital download land and now, an ESRB listing has all but confirmed it: according to a variety of sources, including Kotaku, One Last Continue, and 1Up , the FFVII listing has been located. It's right there for you to see – just follow the link – and it clearly indicates that the role-playing classic should become available for play on either the PS3 or PSP some time soon. It's already on the Japanese Store and when North American fans learned of it, they all began to clamor for Cloud and Co. We figured it wouldn't be long before we'd get it and it appears we were right; however, we don't yet have a release date, and it may or may not show up at E3 this week. We'd like to think FFVII will be on the US Store some time early this month, but we hate to guesstimate on stuff like this. Let's just say that the ESRB isn't exactly in the habit of rating 12-year-old games a second time just for fun…it's not an official confirmation, but it's darn close.
So anyway, if you haven't already played it (and if so, shame on you), you will want to pony up the measly few bucks and download it when it becomes available. Oh yes, you will.
