Square Enix hit a sour note with Playstation fans when they announced Final Fantasy VII would be coming to the PS4, but not as the remake most of us have been hoping for. No, instead it would be a direct port that will cost more than the price of the recent Steam version. Well they just sank the dagger in a little deeper, regardless of your console of choice.

It was confirmed earlier this year that a voucher to download a Final Fantasy XV demo would be included with copies of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD on Xbox One and PS4. However, Square Enix recently clarified that the vouchers would only be included in the first “Day One” shipment of the game; urging you to pre-order to guarantee your copy, or purchase the recently confirmed collector’s edition for the demo voucher. Kind of a dick move there, Square.

“First, as Tabata-san said in a recent episode of Square Enix Presents, this demo is exclusive to Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. We’re never going to release it as a stand-alone piece down the line. Secondly, it’s intended to be a special gift for those of you who purchase early — the demo will be limited to the “Day One” edition of the game, meaning that only the first shipment is going to have the demo in it. So if the demo is something you think you might like, we highly encourage you to pre-order or to be quick about getting to the store on launch day, March 17th, 2015.”

Will you be pre-ordering to secure your demo voucher?

  1. So they really did it huh. The last time this topic was discussed, Tabata said they were considering a time limit to get the demo. Now it’s not the time limit, but you have to order the correct game edition. Just wow Square Enix.

    1. It’s a mix of both, really. You can get a voucher in the regular version of the game, but only if you buy one of the first shipments of it–the “Day One” edition, basically. Hence why they’re “urging” you to pre-order, or go the more expensive route with the collector’s edition.
