The users who are still unsuccessful in getting the code have been advised to try later. Final Fantasy has always been popular with the gamers because of its storyline and visual elements.

A number of gamers who failed to log in to the site and into a valid code have posted their grievances in the social networking sites. The final version of the game for PC will be unveiled on September 30th, as per the plan.
