more like looking generic as hell. X(

No reason to hate.

Yeah, looks really good. Honestly not as gorgeous as the PC version maxed out, but that is to be expected. And really, all that seems to be noticably missing is the INTENSE lighting effects and fog effect. The foliage looks pretty much the same.

I can't believe I'm actually considering paying a subscription to play a game. I always swore I wouldn't. I havn't decided YET, but I'll know after I play the beta, and get a little more info (most importantly, if I can put the game on my 2nd PS3 and play online with my father without paying for 2 subscriptions. This is very important to me as a broke-ass gamer).

$15 a month is gonna be an issue as well. Hopefully they lower that a bit. Maybe a discount for Plus would be nice, $100 for a year perhaps. I wouldn't mind the sub fee if the game were free to download, but buying the game AND a sub-fee may push me to "opt-out" unfortunately.

Start saving ur money now. Or if it comes out before X mass get someone to buy it as ur x mass present.
Spenok  +   801d ago
Well sorry to disappoint you, but if you want to play with your father (or anyone else for that matter) you are going to need a second subscription. You WILL be able to put the account on your other PS3 though, however you will only be able to log in the account on one PS3 at a time.

I also doubt seeing a subscription decrease anytime soon. They had lowered it down to $10 for people playing it until 2.0 launches, and will be bringing it back up.

And as for a PS+ discount, I also doubt seeing that. It just doesn't seem to make to much sense business wise.

Though I guess there is one (potential) shining light on your wishes. MOST MMO's when they launch, have some sort of legacy program (or something similarly named) where if you pay upfront X amount of $$, it end's up being like $8.99 a month. Though that's usually about $120 a year I believe.

Now I have no idea if SE plan on doing that for this, seeing as how it has already been out for more than two years. Maybe they will make an exception for PS3 subscribers and anyone else that decides to start playing. As this is a RElaunch and all.

and @ BLackcanary

They have already said the game will be coming out early next year. So Christmas is unfortunately out of the question.

is this game f2p?
also wondering if there is mic support and do pc gamers use that or just use ventrilo/skype?

@wishingw3l
if dc universe was released as a f2p than it may have made a bigger and better impact. shame that it flopped

no ff will never be F2p it never was never will be and no MMO has mic support.
iXenon  +   801d ago
"no MMO has mic support" -Dno, someone who has never played an MMO
bobbyluv  +   801d ago
DCUO has mic support.
hkgamer  +   801d ago
just wondering if the reboot also meant that it was goin f2p.
must be really annoying to party up with ps3 players if they have have no access to a mic. could imagine boss battles being a pain if no one is talking to each other.
Dno  +   801d ago
ok let me change that very few MMOs have mic support
Blackcanary  +   801d ago
Final Fantasy 11 online never had mic support and nether will FF 14 online make sure you get a key board and mouse when playing this or the mini keyboard u can get for the dual shock 3. cause you will be typing to communicate
Lovable  +   801d ago
Yes I believe this will be f2p.

Me and my friend are waiting for this

No sadly it won't .. i personally wish this game was B2P or even F2P on the PS3 version .. it has a subscription fee now .. but in the future maybe not !

Dno  +   801d ago
no its not.
TheLyonKing  +   801d ago
It won't be free, square have put alot of hours into this and need a good return on it.
wishingW3L  +   801d ago
what consoles need is a f2p game like Guild Wars 2!
Spenok  +   801d ago
Speaking of console MMO's I wonder what ever happened to the Sony/NCsoft deal. :/
FredEffinChopin  +   792d ago
I know this is old, but for the record, GW2 is not F2p. It does not have a subscription. The two mean very different things.
belac09  +   801d ago
looks great
Chapulin  +   801d ago
Release date?
Skate-AK  +   801d ago
Beta in November.
Spenok  +   801d ago
As Skate says, Beta in November, and release sometime early next year.
Chapulin  +   800d ago
Thnx guys! Hope to see u in the beta.
Pretty good, looking forward to seeing PS3 gameplay.
0pie  +   801d ago
i dont know but... im not sure console is the place for a mmo with a paid subscription.
Spenok  +   801d ago
It worked VERY well for FFXI. So if this reboot turns out to be any good (which it is looking pretty damn good, especially if the updates over the last year and a half are to go by, it will.) Than I can see enough people getting on and playing. I know I will be. As I love/d FFXI, and have been enjoying XIV for some time now.

A disgrace a numbered FF game is a MMO.
Jihaad_cpt  +   801d ago
have you never heard of FF 11?
Kratoscar2008  +   801d ago
No but the MMO should be as spin off, a numbered FF game is more story focused and licable characters.

TheLyonKing  +   801d ago
I agree, as far as I am concered I am waiting for ff versus 12.

online should have been a spin off just like 15 should be too.
Blackcanary  +   801d ago
FF 11 online is fully story based. You can complete the game. I spent 4 years playing it had my self a SMN/WHM
tweet75  +   801d ago
better be great gameplay hard to follow up what came of the pc version
abzdine  +   801d ago
looking great but i dont know about the MMO aspect i never tried any before.
Is there a story in this type of games or we just play without purpose ?
Abriael  +   801d ago
It has a full fledged storyline with cutscenes and all (actually multiple).
Blackcanary  +   801d ago
I loved Final Fantasy 11 online loved the story line love the fact it was an mmorpg but i never completed the story line. Can't wait for this to come out does anyone know how to get into the beta?
iWishTifaWasReal  +   801d ago
im already paying $60 for the game. and Square Enix wants money for playing online?

NO Free to Play Not buying the game.

Go eat your poop Square Enix.
GraveLord  +   801d ago
This game will flop if its not free to play. I'm not saying we have to download it for free like DCU, but online should be free with purchase.
InfamousHero  +   801d ago
This game isnt going to be for everyone. If you want a f2p game to play you can play Guild Wars 2 or DC Universe. Just because some games adopted this doesnt mean all future games have to.

I personally don't want FFXIV to be f2p. Subscription fees guarantee server maintenance, updates, and just overall more care.
3-4-5  +   801d ago
It doesn't look like Final Fantasy.

It looks good/ok but not what I would picture FF14 should look like.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   800d ago
It looks a lot like a FF. The Chocobos, airships, and all the classes make it feel like a FF from what I've seen.
