During the 12th edition of the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Letter of the Producer Live, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida announced the release date of the PS4 version of the game, and showcased the beautiful box art by Akihiko Yoshida.
Geez, sounds like we're going to be getting flooded with more games in the next couple months, so many releases seem to be planned around the same time. Glad to finally get a date on this one though.
getting the CE w i have unsealed PC 1.0 CE 2.0 pc and ps3 CE now i want the ps4 one!
awesome, i bought the CE for PS3 when it was on sale on PSN
Whats it like? Have you played other mmos to compare? Thanks! :)
the combat system is kinda turned based which turns people off, but i love it.
I played this game on release for the whole free month, how is it turn based? It's traditional MMORPG combat. The PVE stuff is almost exactly a mirror of World of Warcraft, GuildWars and all the good MMORPG's In the end I stopped playing this game because it didn't support the M/Kb properly on PS3, it worked in most ways, but wouldn't allow me to use my number keys to initiate my skills. They have probably fix this problem now but I have chosen not to return to this game because on PS3 it's just way too choppy and ugly, this is to be expected of course. I will deffo be playing this on PS4 again, my only concern is that how far behind I will be compared to other players.
pve kinda similar to wow, guild wars and aion. controller is kinda easy to use, but some classes may use a lot of skills which makes it harder and harder to use controller, kb&m combo definitely better. also note that ps3 players can only use kb to type, you wont be able to plus kb&m to play the game. instances are not that great, but im sure it will improve sooner or later. world events called F.A.T.E.S. are kinda oring and mainly used for people to grind exp. characters can change classes which means that you only need to have one character. some skills are transferable, so my black mage might use some archer skills. ps3 is very slow and takes a long time loading, used to have people complaining in raid dungeon speed runs because it takes too long for me to load the next screen. on ps3 certain fates where you get to face behemoth and odin the bosses dont load up on screen because too many things going on. i nor ally just see a blank screen and cant even attack the boss. after the 2.1 ver update ive only played a little so cant comment on pvp or anything like that. anyway, try and play it on pc or ps4, ps3 version is lacking but good enough i guess. in conclusion, ffxiv is getting better with every update. have lots of minor complaints but for some reason i still play it alot. maybe its just mmo addiction.
@hkgamer 'also note that ps3 players can only use kb to type, you wont be able to plus kb&m to play the game.' That is false my friend, I ONLY used KB/M when I used to play FFXIV on my PS3.
Great news! Day one for me, this PS4 drought is almost over. For me starting February with Outlast!
Another Greatness is arriving !!.. My PS4 is always Ready for you, Final Fantasy.
So i keep seeing this for ps3 instores for only £10! Am i right in thinking its a free upgrade to ps4 if you have the ps3 version? If so £10 seems a great price? Or do you have to activate it on ps3 or something first?
The upgrade is free, yes. Dunno about any activation though. Just buy it. The upgrade is garanteed.
Greatness is truly here
Still have to commend Square Enix for the job they did on this reworking. The game was sh*t and they made it great. Looking forward to trying out this version.
I love this game but I have a question. I bought this on ps3 CE edition. When I download the beta on ps4 I know that I will be able to play but will I need to "buy" it again from the store when it releases in April or what happens next?
Nope. PS3 owners get free upgrade to PS4. You won't be able to play on PS3 anymore though as it's a one-way upgrade.
There is a PSN sale on FF14 FOR PS3 currently and it's a free upgrade to PS4 for people who are going to play it on the PS4.
Ok so I bought the Disk version for my PS3 how do i upgrade that to the PS4 version?
The game is actually fully installed on the ps3 so you don't even have to play with the disk installed. Also, I'm assuming that the upgrade will work based on your account details on the mog station.
kl thanks for the info. woohoo i can't wait to Raid my new Fat Chocobo mount lol
ive got the digitaal version, so not 100% sure, but did you have to tie the game to your psn account?
Nope its connected to your SE account on the Mog Station
If I have purchased on PS3 Digitally will it be a $10 upgrade?
is there a monthly fee for this?
yea there is a fee but there there 3 different type's of payments the one I'm using is the standard option.
Can't wait for it, i was in the beta and tried it on PC and PS3. I was worried about the controls, but i found them great on my PS3. I couldn't get when it was very cheap on PS3 but i want it on PS4. Hope they can get 60fps like they were saying ;D
