Japanese Gamers Really Want the Final Fantasy XIV Preorder Code, Going for 168 Bucks on Auction

Preorders for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn are going really well in Japan, so well that Square Enix ran out of preorder codes that give three days of early access (from August the 24th to August the 27th), a Moogle-shaped hat and a Cait Sith minion.

Some Japanese gamers really want these bonuses, and where there’s a demand, offer normally appears to match it, in this case in the popular auction section of Yahoo Japan, but how much are Japanese gamers willing to pay? Turns out, quite a lot. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3, PS4)

This seems to happen with a lot of big MMOs, kind of sad, especially since many are fakes.

If i were to spend 170 bucks for a fake I'd kick myself in the face... Actually, i would if i were top spend that for 3 days of early access and two in game items, even if they weren't fake.

$168 is a lot for a pre-order code, but I guess this just goes to show how popular this game is becoming.

I'm so happy for square-enix, yoshida(spelling?) and his team really stepped up their game remaking this. Can't wait for the 27th!
