What on earth is the point of putting SecuROM into an £8 game??? Steam's DRM would have been plenty. If people are too cheap to pay £8 then SecuROM isn't going to stop them cracking it, it's easily hacked.

Still not sure what the point in this is? It's already available for the PC. What does this new release do different?

Not only that but get a PS emu and the original discs and no need for DRM at all, shocking show fron Square.
What you need to remember is that there's what people want to hear, there's what people want to believe, there's everything else, THEN there's the truth!

I think the idea was to port it to modern Windows to work. The original is a pain to run on a modern PC and in most cases still has severe issues (upside-down cutscenes, super-speed minigames and random crashes being among them).
