FF XIV: ARR Producer Naoki Yoshida, "We Could Consider Free-to-Play" But Never Pay-to-Win

GR - I got a chance to sit down with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn producer/director Naoki Yoshida to talk about the upcoming PlayStation 4 port of the game. Yoshida spoke through a translator and these interviews can sometimes be difficult given the time constraints and intermediary, but Yoshida was genuine, likable, and forthcoming about all things Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

I would love for this game to be F2P with the option of allowing users to pay a subscription fee. That way you populate the game and give all of the content regularly to those who feel your game is worth paying a monthly fee.

I'd love to see them pull that off.
They make a ton of money with the subscription model though -- one of the few that still successfully pull it off these days -- so I doubt they will.

I'm glad he's at least considering it now. I recall way before ARR launched, Yoshida said he would rather shut the game down than go Free to Play...or something along those lines. Not that ARR needs to go F2P, but it's good they would go F2P many years down the road rather than just outright shut the game down.

I hope this game becomes popular but $15 a month is a bit much
$15 x 12 = $180 a year
They should have priced it $60 a year that way more people would buy it

Or you could simply pay for a year and get the discount.

The game is already popular. And Honestly I think it might gain some subscribers when the PS4 version comes out.

I am subscripted to this game and play it daily.

The day you announce F2P I will instantly QUIT. Just like I did with Age of Conan, Rift, SWTOR and TERA.

F2P = low quality MMO with cash shop over content and balances and there all F2P MMOs are Pay to win.
