A few hours ago Square Enix held a livestream event on the Japanese streaming website Nico Nico with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida, that showcased quite a lot of Alpha gameplay and a few pieces of information on the upcoming beta testing. The event was definitely successful, with 61,974 viewers, demonstrating a keen interest of the Japanese audience in the game. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3)

Square enix putting all their eggs in the Final fantasy 14 basket is just stupid, and i really doubt its gonna pay off. This could very well be what kills square enix with the ammount of money and time they are pumping into this. I bet Wade listened to his fortune teller again.

Final fantasy saved the company and a realm reborn is gonna kill them.

Not when its gonna kill the company.

They owe fans & people who bought the original FF14 this nice upgrade and support..I respect SE for going back to the drawing board and creating a much better quality version..

And where exactly did you hear/read that they're putting "all their eggs" in the Final Fantasy XIV Basket? They have other games in the works, and they're operating Dragon Quest X as well, that will launch on the Wii U soon.

Besides, the game looks great so far, so there's no reason to believe that it will "kill" anyone.

Wada may have listened to his fortune teller, but you sure don't read the news :D

They already put most of their eggs in the FF14 basket. Chose to put in even more in attempt to fix what was a lazy effort. If it fails or doesn't pay off this time its going to be more because the MMO market has become non-friendly to new titles asking for $15 a month regardless of name.

FFXIV is not $14.99 a month. It was $6.99 to play and $3.00 per character slot. Seeing that one character can do all roles, it is essentially $9.99 a month. That's what it was for the first FFXIV until they pulled the plug.

Well, I'm excited
The new Director/Producer has been really vocal with the fans of the series/game on "fixing" the game. They sent out several in-depth surveys, posted the results and detailed what they intend to do with the results. This game is 100% "listened to the fans" and I'm excited to see what they came up with.

We're in the age of people not wanting to pay 15 bucks a month anymore. This game will fail, again, and i'm gonna be happy when it does.

Actually, everything so far leads to believe that the game will be successful. The general buzz is very positive both between the public and the press.

There are still a lot of people willing to pay a monthly fee to pay for a good game instead of playing utterly mediocre ones for free, only to be plagued by countless restrictions and being nickeled and dimed to have a somehow complete experience.

I guess trolls will cry when that'll happen.

"There are still a lot of people willing to pay a monthly fee to pay for a good game" No. There's a reason why FF14, dc universe, starwars, and the secret world flopped.
NO ONE wants to pay monthly.
The only way people are going to pay 15 bucks a month is when the next wc comes out.
