Final Fantasy VII for Steam is 30% Off (Not in Steam Summer Sale)

PC gamers wanting to collect every-single-game during the Steam Summer Sale have a few more titles to salivate over, with Final Fantasy recently being added to the Steam catalog. But why pay full price when you can get a discount?  There’s a new Green Man Gaming coupon netting a solid 30% off numerous Steam-activated games, including the excellent Final Fantasy VII for only $8.40.

 

You’ll need to have a Square Enix account in order to play the Steam version of the game, but the good news is SecuROM is no longer in this PC version of the game. Some extra notes on local saves for this FF7 Steam version: if you uninstall the game, your local saves will be gone, but you can easily back up the files prior to removing the game data from your computer (the save files are in the Documents > Square Enix folder). Of course, your “Cloud Saves” will be tied to your Square Enix account, so those saves aren’t going anywhere.

 

Beyond Final Fantasy VII, there are plenty of other excellent games on sale thanks to this coupon, including the recently released Company of Heroes 2 plus the latest Civilization V expansion Brave New World.

 

The 30% off coupon GMG30-LY2G6-UKDYY will expire on July 22 at 11AM Eastern Time. The full list of games that the coupon applies to is below:

 

July released games on sale:

 

Game Title Metascore MSRP % Off Sale Price

    Damn… I hope Japanese developers will make more games for PC in the near future. Those Steam Sales are amazing but I won’t buy any FPS games. XD

    • Ethan_Twain

      You may feel optimistic! Square Enix looks to be moving that direction with DQ X and FF XV, Capcom has been moving in that direction for a while with Resident Evil, and Konami has begun moving that direction with the Lords of Shadow Castlevania games. Sega even put recent Sonic games on Steam.

      Beyond what Yesshua mentioned, be sure to look into the Ys games that Xseed put out on Steam (and they’ve implied that they want to do more with the platform), and games like Recettear that Carpe Fulgur localized.

      “I won’t buy any FPS games.”
      Yeah, I know that feeling. I’m not a big fan of first person shooters. Even though they’re pretty popular on the PC. I’m a fan of PC gaming, but not so much some of the popular genres on the PC.

      Though, I did buy a copy of Mirror’s Edge one time. I consider it to be one of the more interesting titles in the genre. Perhaps because, aesthetically and mechanically, it’s very different from your average first person shooter.

    FF7 is the Flash Sale on Steam ATM and its about 30 cents cheaper.

      Ack so much for “not in Steam Summer Sale” – it didn’t seem likely given it was a July “release” and was never discounted.

    Maybe this will finally be the first time I get to play FFVII!!!!
    I really really REALLYYYYYYYYYY want to play this game…. My JRPG repertoire doesn’t really feel complete without it :(

  • MrRobbyM

    Does it use the PS1 soundtrack or the midi old PC version?

    • Monterossa

      the damn midis are in this version but you can easily mod them. there’s a guy made an installer to replace all the themes.

      • MrRobbyM

        Thanks! Good to know. With the DRM removed and the midi crap being easily replaced, I’ll probably get this tomorrow. Woop!

      • Matt Andre

        I really hope you’re not referring to that FFVII mod manager “Bootleg”.. Because that’s a known Trojan horse virus. Use caution.

        • Manny Being Manny

          No its not.

        • CirnoLakes

          [citation needed]

          • Matt Andre

            Several anti-virus scanners bringing it up as a malicious Trojan threat. That enough of a “source” for you?

          • Ferrick

            what AVs did you use that notify you that it was a trojan

          • Matt Andre

            AVG, TrendMicro, Adaware Anti-virus even found a bug.

          • Ferrick

            wow… you basically listed the AVs that loves to give false positives

          • Pandafilando

            my thoughts exactly

          • revenent hell

            I would try and see what people say for different AV’s.

            I have Kaspersky and generally I think they are pretty good but even still every now and again it will deny me access to a link for some silly reason.

            No AV is perfection I think and I find AVG (threw my employer) tends to pop up with “Virus” warnings and blocked sites which I know for a fact aren’t infected more so than any other program ive dealt with in the past. Ive never heard of Adware antivirus or Trend Micro though but that’s probably because they aren’t popular for my locale

          • CirnoLakes

            No, considering it could be a false-positive.
