If the official statement in the article is to be followed, the Square Enix is actually admitting that they DID NOTHING with any of the feedback they took from the beta of Final Fantasy XIV, essentially making the whole beta process pointless.
lol. people have faith that anything of quality will ever come from this company again?
SE generally has a condescending attitude towards fans and their opinions
In the end they have only further burned their reputation with die hard fans who are now putting their faith in SE on life support. All I can say is that vs13 had better deliver a true FF experience or it could very well be SE's final fantasy.
This statement is certainly proof of that. How can you have any faith in what Square says. Their credibility is beyond rock bottom.
S-E is technically a lost cause as long as Wada is in charge, according to gamers.
well there goes any chance that I'll ever reactivate my account. let alone buy versus.
Nice excuse to try to tell people that your game is still worth their time
I'm guessing most people thought this as well. PC Beta seemed more like an Alpha then the game release is more or less the actual beta, So that way by the time it lands on PS3 and is completely rolled out for "All" the masses it won't be of "beta" status anymore.
Or maybe the PS3 version will be a whole new beta altogether.
...you cannot trust SE. Make them pay by keeping your wallets and pocket books closed to them. They WILL NOT learn their lesson and continue to treat the few people willing to buy their games like crap.
Thanks for making me pay $75 for a beta, SE.
. 360's Vesperia & Wii's Graces also too.
Vesperia is an excellent game and Graces too.
we already knew this, but why the fuck are they charging monthly for it when they know it themselves? Isn't that illegal or something? lol
its not illegal, but a fool and his money are soon parted. i assume it does what is advertised, it just doesn't do it very well.
I`m giving one more chance with SE on FF13 versus and maybe this game for PS3 if they both don`t impress or just do well in general then i am done. I don`t understand what happen to them they used to be so great at making RPG`s. I find it funny to how they say the PC version now is like beta. Yeah we been through beta already it should be the full version of the game nothing less. They should be doing their job not releasing a half ass game. I think they are just trying to cover their ass.
I cant wait for them to go bankrupt screw se
Words just can't express it, so...
a BETA is a way to Promote your Game, like an ad and you failed SE http://failblog.files.wordp...
Just give me Versus and don't f it up plz.
you just know they will somehow...
emulate Blizzard's success in pay subscriptions if they're not going to put effort into releasing a quality product and then sticking to a release date... also, it seems Square has not learned any lessons from FF XI at all... damn you to hell, Wada...
Funk you Squeenix and Wada!!!!! :/ How could they do this to us..
what a fuk up. the beta was so horrible i canceled my pre-order. the fact that most testers didn't even get to submit bug reports was another thing that seemed odd. the next thing that was done wrong was how they didn't patch any of the problems that the community complained about. for example camera control bound to i,j,k,l and no way to move them. this lasted the entire alpha/beta stages, i still dunno if that been fixed. i loved FFXI, but after the sour taste the ff14 beta left in my mouth i was happy to re-sub to WOW. in the end it seems like SE wanted to beat cataclysm to the shelves, ultimately fucking over the people who would have bought and enjoyed the game. Keiji Inafune was right, the state of JP video games is shit atm.
FF is way over milked 14 times!! if versus turns out sh!tty let SE die...
Yeah if people read the article it said that the were not able to put in the fixes from the beta for release and instead focused on debugging the game. There was no where in the article that said they think the pc release was a beta. Higher up set a date and the developers made it playable enough to release thinking they could add to it soon after release. if you played the beta, didnt like it and still bought it your a dumbass. but if you bought it and see the potential it has and like the things they said they doing let your account lapse and comeback when the changes happen. I will say this again the only thing they said was they couldn't implement the changes people asked for by release. Which everyone knew already
delayed rather than stick with the release date...
one of the big two must buy out SE if Final Fantasy is to be saved.
Were Final Fantasy 11 12 and 13 betas too?
much as it annoyed me when they delayed dcu online it would have annoyed me more if they put out an unfinished game the way square did. mind you, if this ffxiv has bigger problems than just being unfinished, charging you a sub, then charging you for a character slot, how they can think that's justified i don't know, pretty much every free to play game gives you at least one character slot, that this subscription game doesn't even give you one should tell you all you need to know about this game.
