I was hoping, that this would come to PC one day. Also because it means, chances are high that the FF VII remake will make it to PC. Looks decent though.

You guys forgot about the 170 GB of disk space for installing the game in the first place. I hope Square Enix isn't doing the same shit they did with Final Fantasy 13, which requires 60 GB of disk space, but of which almost 30 GB are just for the Japanese videos and voices. An option to select if you want them or not would have been great. No point in downloading something if you're not gonna use it.
