Square Enix Just announced that Final Fantasy XIV users will have to start paying a discounted monthly fee starting on January the 6th, 2012.
Very curious to see if the ps3 version will be good. If it is, I'll support this game gladly. Have been ages since my last mmorpg!
Im sure once 2.0 launches (PS3 version at the same time) The game will be nothing short of amazing. The game has come a LONG way since launch and is in my opinion absolutely worth paying for now. Im glad they reduced the monthly fee to $10 though, as its an easier pill to swollow. Yoshi P, the new creative director for the game has done this game a great service. And is only giving this game the breath of life. I honestly believe that it will be something absolutely special once 2.0 launches. And maybe even before then. Especially if the patches that have been releasing lately are anything to go by.
No its not worth paying for now. I stopped playing last month and while It's a decent timesink. It's got a few more patches before It's worth recommending. I have no doubts 2.0 will bring it to where it should have been though.
The Game is not bad since the recent patches, but i think i will stop playing it, when the billing comes. It its not good enough for this in the moment.
They had a chance to get me into another MMO when this came out and they failed miserably. FFXI was my first MMO and I loved everything about it (FFXI had the best community). Now SWTOR is coming out and has all my attention.
Game should be free ffs.
Very interested in the PS3 version if it ever sees the light of day.
it failed to bring back the players and it's free , because of the bad taste it left since launch . tried it again some weeks ago and it still more or less the same . now you wana charge for it ! Really square ! really ! and with the great mmo's coming now.
You tried FFXIV again a few weeks ago and it was the same at launch? Wow...I highly doubt you tried it again then, and if you did, you sure didn't do a whole lot. It's practically an entirely different game as far as mechanics go.
Ehhh not really. I agree its not the same game as launch but at the end of the day ur still leve grinding in a world that feels empty and yes I was in a pretty big ls
PS3/Ver 2.0 is still in the plans for late 2012... I hope those that are interested are still indeed interested by then.
i wouldnt buy this even if you paid me.
Cheaper than the FFXI. Oh well... We'll see what happens come Q4, 2012.
This will go back to free 2 play because it is only doing well now because it is free. Free to play is the future for this genre.
Which is completely unfortunate. Its sad that these games move onto micro transactions. Seeing as at the end of the day, if you are really into an MMO that is micro transaction based, you will EASILY spend more then $10-15 a month :/
Man I still didn't play this game when they had $0 sub fee. I even wrote them an actual letter over a year ago asking for a refund of my collectors edition... Heard nothing back from them yet.
