Final Fantasy VIII Available on US PSN

We may have three more months until Final Fantasy XIII makes its way to our shores, but SquareEnix is attempting to ease the pain with a blast from the past.

Final Fantasy VIII is available for download on the PlayStation Network at a price of $9.99USD, just a few months past it's Tenth Anniversary here in the US.

A European release date has not been announced, but the EU market will be getting a SquareEnix title of their own next week, when Vagrant Story releases across the region on Dec. 22nd.

SquareEnix is spreading the holiday cheer, but only on PlayStation~
