Final Fantasy XIV Breaks Record for Most Preorders in History of Japanese PSN, First on US Amazon

The early access of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has just started, and things are getting crowded with queues already visible on many congested servers. This isn't really surprising, since preorders for the game were apparently through the roof, as shared by Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida.

The downloadable PC version of the game is also currently first on Amazon US's best seller charts for games.

Well deserved IMO, I wont get to play until Monday myself (work) but I really enjoyed Beta 4.

The best thing is they don't make you pay £40/50 for the box and then the monthly fee, I got mine for £13 on Shopto before the raised it to £15 and IMO more MMO's with a sub should follow this route, you look at ESO which is going to have a monthly fee and item shop and the box is still $60.

Agreed, besides the game looks fantastic on its own right. Honestly I would have spent the 60 without blinking once, but hey, cheap is good, and they also gave the PC version for free to everyone that played the original

Hey, mate, could you please tell me what makes the game so good. I didn't get the chance to play the beta, and I'm too lazy to read the previews lol. But the feedback seems so good it got me really interested.

Abriael1068d ago

@ShugaCane: it's really too many things, I do advise to try the previews lol :D

After all the improvements that were done and the open beta convincing even more players this is no surprise whatsoever. I have a good number of RPG fans (mostly my old WKCs friends) on my PS3 list and all were playing the beta as well as notifying me and each other which server they'd be playing on.

$40 brand new with the first month free of the monthly charge. People have been waiting a long time for a proper ff mmo. SE fans do still exist.

Well desrved indeed. An amazing game! Glad it's finally out :)

5 long days wait is finally over since beta, ahhh it feels good to be back in eorzea :D

Servers are mad, monster being chopped down everywhere.

catch1068d ago

I'm at work counting the hours until I can get home and play. I just hope the servers are up to all the pressure!

Reborn1068d ago

More like monsters are getting killed all over. FATE are nuts.

goldwyncq1068d ago

And they say Final Fantasy is dead.

Kurisu1068d ago

Final Fantasy will never be dead to me!

My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante1068d ago

It has been dead ever since they became Square-Enix. It's funny how people try and justify the monthly fee for this but then get mad over Elder Scrolls Online doing the same thing.

KonsoruMasuta1068d ago

Talks about a franchise being dead - Has remade Dante as his icon.

Abriael1068d ago

Says the one with Donte in his avatar.

Only those blinded by ignoreance think that Final Fantasy is dead.

Baka-akaB1068d ago

It's funny how you pretend people that are ok with subs in FF and other game are mad over the subs in ESO .

Make no sense whatsoever , then again you never ever made sense around here

zeal0us1068d ago

ESO is going to be $60 plus $15. The overall response to the ESO videos has been mixed. A lot of people don't feel what Zenimax is offering, justify a sub fee. Not mention they're adding a cash shop. Most people rather the game be B2P or F2P.

FF14:ARR is only $30(standard edition) plus $13-15 depending on how you sub. The overall response to FF14:ARR has been positive. I haven't seen a complaint against the sub fee so I guess people believe what SE is offering justifies the sub fee.

@ dante
You are such a troll to this game, I've seen you saying the same things in many different threads.

Normally I don't respond to people like you but your negativity is pathetic

Magicite1067d ago

ESO is joke compared to FF. A maligned PC bug-fest.

Haters will always say what they want. Just wait for FF15, I bet it will be a blast!
