Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Is on Fire with Over 150,000 Concurrent Connections

Just yesterday the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn open beta achieved the record number (at least for what Japanese online games are concerned) of 120,000 users online at the same time.

Even that record didn’t last long, as reported by Producer & Director Naoki Yoshida.

Unfortunately the heavy traffic is also causing problems. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3, PS4)

absolutely awsome game. went on a mad 12 hour session, literally lost track of reality. I Usually get bored with most games after an hour or 2.

yeah it's pretty damn awesome. Too bad for the error 3102 that's ruining it for some, but it's beta after all.
Stsonic  +   624d ago
I got this error once or twice but was able to login within a few minutes again.

People are raging on the square enix fourm over a beta error!? What do they expect so dumb.

I think I play it 17 hrs yesterday, error 3102 is the only thing that stopped me. Now Im rested and ready to do it again.

I guess I won't be on today, damn error 3102 still.

Lol, it's awesome. It's the first MMORPG that grabbed me sinced more than half a decade.
But the monthly fee...
Urrgh, I'm still a student ffs. Short on cash :(.
Old McGroin  +   624d ago
I think it's about $12 a month, that's $3 a week, surely you're not that short of cash?
modesign  +   624d ago
$12 a month for 1 game is a lot.
Magicite  +   624d ago
Yeah its even cheaper than wow!
Old McGroin  +   624d ago
@ modesign

I suppose it is when you consider you have already paid for the disc as well. I've never gotten in to a subscription based MMO before but I think I'll give this a go, depends on the reviews. I'm not exactly rich but I can afford $3 a week.

Bros I need cash for other games such as Splinter Cell and GTA!
Also, I only earn 200€ a month so 12€ per month for a game is too much. I need money for living and clothes.
Wish it was more around the 8-10€ prize region...
But I'm really digging dat shyte :(

I wonder when the issues for the airship to Limsa and "Oh my Captain" will be addressed before the beta ends. Other than that, my friends and I are having a blast with the game especially in the crafting department for me.

I ordered mine Collectors edition so can't wait to play early access on 24th!
Kurisu  +   624d ago
Normal PS3 edition for me. I've got Beta access but can't get in to the right server so might need to wait for early access to try again! Going to try again tonight after work before it ends tomorrow morning.

Having a ton of fun. Just feels like I'm running out of inventory space though, without retainer feature active. It's quite a pain.

Ordered CE, can't wait.

have a ps4 version ready for launch and you have all my money, sucks that I've had the dreaded 3102 error for most of the beta, but what I did get to play has me wanting more :)

guys i need help
i tried on the pc version and on the ps3 version and it always says that either the id or the password are incorrect
what can i do?
NexGen  +   624d ago
Remember or reset your password like any other online thing. As for username, don't use your email address - use your username.

gameplay is great on both platforms

looks awesome on pc, and runs at a perfect 60

looks pretty awful on ps3, and runs terrible, but still fun, and to be honest I absolutely hate the controls on ps3 too, especially as a caster class, way too convoluted
