Square Enix have said that phase one of the Final Fantasy XIV Beta is unlikely to reach the PlayStation 3, but are hoping for phase two to support the console.
It had better, Final Fantasy became something on the PS3...
...but hope to get into beta eventually and will buy this game when it drops.
"Final Fantasy became something on the PS3" Get your facts straight it became something on the NES.
I think he meant to say: "It became something GOOD on Playstation." Playstation has put Final Fantasy where it is today, it took separating from Nintendo's misdirection and dated technology to final realize their potential. Sadly these days they are furthering themselves from the company that made them, and it shows in the poor quality of their work.
No..FF STARTED on the NES, FF came well known worldwide when FF7 came out. FF7 broke in millions to the RPG genre. Before then, the series was a niche genre and was only a hit in Asian territories.
FF VI was on SNES which many people including myself consider to be the best FF. Anyways, I hope the PS3 beta starts soon because the FFXIII code overrode my PC application. I really want to try it, i'm kind of afraid its going to lose its hardcore appeal though. FF made the PS brand more then the PS made FF. I bought my first PS for FFVII.
@Scar 360WA I don't know about the FF made the PS brand more then the PS made FF. ALOT of what the Final Fantasy series is now known for was possible only because of the PS1 and that's why Square jumped from Nintendo to Sony because the N64 could not do ALOT of what they wanted to. The games in the series became as cinematic and as epic as they did because of the PS1(the music as well the CGI would not have been possible on the N64). The series would have been severely held back had it not come to the PS and in that way the PS helped make Final Fantasy but at the same time games like Final Fantasy that used the PS to it's fullest was what built the PS brand.
i knew i should of saved that code for the special item
I agree, and know the PS allowed FF to do things the N64 wouldn't be able to, but to me the FF series did far more for the PS brand. For me four games defined the first PS FF, MGS, TM2 and GT. I dont know why, but for some reason it bugs me when people act like FF started FFVII, and think Square owes Sony anything, I think Sony owes Square for the millions of users its gained Sony over the years.
see www.eorzeapedia.com its a pretty awesome website. Im really excited awaiting this game. FF14 will stay alot closer to the FF roots then FF13 did. You cannot get a more open world than that of an MMOG. The textures of the fantasy world are just intense, its a beautiful game. This MMO is going to be killer. You should all take part. My planned guild has about 20 hardcore people for sure joining and another approx. 20 possible members, if you are interested in joining it send me a PM.
Square, just give me some VS news and I'll be satisfied
Just give it to us Square!
hope i get accepted into the beta for the ps3 version
I would love to try the beta
When will Square Enix begin to send out the invites to PS# users?
Roughly 3-4 weeks until PS3 beta.
Can someone tell me, or give me a link to where i can apply for this beta?
Go to http://entry.ffxiv.com/ and pick your region
Right on ! Really appreciate the link.Never tried an MMO before but i'm anxious too after my time with WKC online. One question tho.. I filled out the whole form but i can't submit it because i have to.. "Please enter the 20-digit promotional code you received on the SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS site without spaces." Where do i find this code? i looked around but to no avail !
@ThatCanadianguy420 You get the code by buying a copy of Final Fantasy XIII on PS3 and registering the game on the Square Enix Members site.
I need a PS3 beta!
i just hope its better than FF13
Its nothing like FFXIII. FFXIV is an MMO, if anything Im hoping its better then FFXI.
I submitted my code with my purchase of FF13, and I'm ready to go. :o)
To any of you who would like to play the Beta but didn't buy FF13, you're in luck. There are auctions on Ebay for codes, believe it or not. Some of them pricey, some of them a decent deal. Best of luck.
this one has towns, worldmap and its not linear, I'd go for this any day.
