FF14 orignally named "Rapture" will have fees. Maybe even monthly fees. In the information section of the official site. Square-Enix confirms the platforms it will be released on and also reveals that there will infact be a fee.
I loved FFXI I was 75 RNG RDM DRK DRG. I will look foward to this and buy it 1st day. Also, Since its coming on PC, I will buy PC version for the simple reason for Add Ons :D
I'd buy the PC version as well but I like my Final Fantasy on Playstation,so I'll get it for Ps3. Will be playing Alan Wake,Modern Warfare 2,and Splinter Cell on PC though.
Ill certaintly pick this up on my PC. haha FOR FREE ;)
AM a FF fan and all. But i really dont think they should have called this came FF14 !!!!!!
FFXI was called FFXI (obv) but that was an online game
lol disagrees for what? FFXI on PC had add ons, very useful ones. I cannot imagine playing FFXI without ad ons
i played FF11 on the PC, this one i wana get it for the PS3 but i have a question for those who have an idea, if i got the game for the ps3 can i log into the game on a PC using the FF14-PS3 account? (assuming i downloaded on my PC) ???
Seriously, no sh*t. You thought they were going to reinvent the wheel because it's on PS3? FFXI was on PS2 and it had fees as well. It's to be expected. I played FFXI on both PS2 and PC and the PC version was much much more user friendly. So unless they've radically changed how you can play an MMO on consoles, I'll be on PC with this one too. It's barely announced though so there's plenty of room for expectation.
FFXI Online is on 360....this is not the same thing as a regular FF RPG's whatsoever.
Good luck having decent sales figures with a monthly fee in recession times.
OUCH. =\ I don't play any one game enough to be charged for playing it over and over again.
yeah you should tell that to blizzard i know they are having a real tuff time with getting users with their monthly fee. That sarcasm in case you couldnt tell
Is there a subscription fee for Sacred 2 on the PS3? Yes = Then why wouldn't this have one? No = Then why would this have one? A quick Google search says "No, there are no subscription fees for the PS3 version" It says "TBA" so it could end up being free, it could. Whether it's worth the subscription fee is up to the consumer anyways. Basically, fee or no fee it makes no difference. If there is a fee then hopefully the game is cheaper, like $40-$50, like most PC games.
1.12 There's no fee for Sacred 2. I don't know if you know or not but its only four players, not an mmo.
not excited for it and I still play ffxi (3 year player). PS3 Hardware Limitations will make sure that that it won't scale well as time goes by.
SE do you want my $180 for the year now or in monthly chunks? 75 RDM RNG
if final fantasy 14 is really a mmo i say make it multiplatform, while it can also be played cross platform, that way the servers will be more full and funner
How many people played FFXI? How many of you know that it also had fees? It's a frigging MMO for goodness sakes, of course it has fees. Did people miss the "Online" under the title when they played the video at E3?
Square Enix is just evil to Sony fans. HA
like how they are evil to 360 fans with FFXI right? $50 for to play on XBL plus FFXI subscription Fee on the top LMAO
and 360 doesn't even get the title. Now go eat some burgers.
to play FFXI online you don't need a gold subscription.
This is NORMAL :O !
yeah id like to see 1 person who is genuinely surprised by this honestly who wasn't expecting this its obvious its going to have monthly fees just like FF11 before it
Only way to make an MMO without monthly fees is to make it heavily instanced, like Guild Wars. Or make it based off of micro-transactions and leave the tech support to the community.
I think it was bad mistake to name this game. FF14. makes people not want to buy ff13. as if FF series is worthless
I didnt play FFXI. MMos suck peoples social life
loved ffxi 60 bst 57 drk 55 war 37 thf, whm, blm, rdm, nin
and wait did a gaming site complain about subscription fees?
Then I don't want their sh!t
I CANT WAIT PS3 ALL THE WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY
yeah i was doubting this game, but now theres no way
Why do I get the feeling that if FFXIV was announced multi-platform and not PS3-exclusive, nobody would be giving a rat's patoot about these fees?
Of course it has subscription fees. :/
uhh it's a MMO and 90% of MMO's have monthly fees. The better question would be is SE gonna break the mold and maybe make the fee a bit lower then most of the other games out there to make it a bit more appealing.
they'd probably charge more.
they charge an extra dollar a month for ONE JUST ONE extra character. You can bet your ar$e they will milk their mmo fanbase for all their worth.
They charge extra money for another character in Final Fantasy XI because unlike most MMO's you DO NOT need to make another character to play another job. A single character can level all the jobs so someone leveling multiple characters is usually doing so to exploit something or to play on many different servers so the extra 1$ makes sense.
dude, even before the trailer was over I knew it was online...It looks like FF11 just newer and updated, and of course it has fee's come on now...haven't you played FF11
I don't mind , played ff11 for 2 1/2 years I didn't mind paying , ..... hmm so now the question for me is . which MMO do I wanna start playing.. The agency or Final Fantasy XIV??? hmmmm
No, no, no my good man...PSN is free.
Shame FF14 online =! PSN.
Square is out the dog house now. PS3 RULES! :p
Shut the hell up. You hated Square with a passion and said all their games suck until this multiplatform game was announced on the PS3. (PS3/PC) Like the majority of you.
hmmm i've never been a fan of mmo cus i always felt like what if i was paying my fee's but 1 month just didn't play it enough to warrent the fee... however i'm hoping this game can change my mind :D plus as crazy as it sounds, i think i'd actually prefer to play an mmo sat on the couch rather than at my desk (don't hurt me mmo fans :D)
The whole point in making a successor to FFXI was to keep a high member count with subscriptions meaning they get a steady income. I might get this for PC but MMOs aren't my thing. Funny thing I bought FFXI with two of the expansions but never played it. Ah well at least I supported my favourite developer.
You didn't miss much. FFXI is brutally unforgiving compared to contemporary MMOs. I quit it about 5 times in 5 years. I hope XIV (I tire of Roman numerals btw) massively improves the learning curve. It seems likely as FFXI took a great many steps to dial back the difficulty in advancing for new players. Lessons learned, I pray.
am I the only one who enjoyed the brutal diffculty? seriously de-level. the sound of it made me cry lol. leveling up in FFXI in it of itself felt incredibly rewarding.
Yeah see, I don't enjoy crying. Oh I enjoyed overcoming the odds. But more often than not the game was more frustrating than it was actually challenging. It's just not built to appeal compared to contemporary MMOs like WoW which is probably why it wasn't as successful despite the FF brand name. I think the goal should be experiencing the content, not spending weeks trying to hit certain levels so you can experience the content. And since levelling isn't particularly fun, all the more. I brag abot my FFXI accomplishments all the time and my WoW friends often wonder how I suffered through it. It's a very hardcore game like that and I think it'd serve them well to dial it back a bit for XIV. That is if they want more subscribers.
lol.. duhh... that's what I've being saying.. this is an MMO game.. and based on the fact that Final Fantaxy XI costs like $12.95/month.. why would they undermine the existing games and make this one free? This game will also end up on the PC.. maybe not on the xbox 360 since Final Fantasy XI didn't do that well.. console fans are not really MMO players... It's an MMO people.. I am an MMO fan.. currently I am playing The Warlords (Free MMO) you should try it... how well this game will do on the PS3... I doubt very well... which is why it make sense to bring to the PC where the largest MMO fanbase exist... Sony probably payed exclusivity because it has the name "Final Fantasy" on it.. and sounds all good... many sony fans are still unaware is an MMO! PR stuff for E3... Sony or square even forgot to mention is an MMO... the only indication it was an MMO is the "Online" on the name...
Hey, got a link for The Warlords?
Your probably sitting in an internet cafe wishing you had enough money to actually afford a console. Get a life dude.
Here is the link to the warlords: http://wl.91.com/index/ @bob saget remix - dude.. are you new at N4G? I already proved I even on a PS3.. just look at my previous posts.
this gona be amazing they just need to add some PvP stuff and a bit faster combat system
I dont see this as a big issue as PSN players like myself dont really have to pay for anything on the network or for using the network for that matter so a little fee for a big game wont hurt much.
oh well, can't win them all.
I wasn't expecting that. The Agency and DCUniverse don't have subscription fees, or do they? Atleast Not that I know of.
as long as the fee's are justified (updates, add ons etc) im fine with this millions pay for MMOs so hopefully this will be done right and be profitable
It's going to be $12.95 - $14.95 a month dude. It's not a fee like Xbox LIVE.
After the crapfest that FFXI turned out to be, I'm very disappointed to see that we have TWO numbers wasted on online titles. Just call it FF Online FFS. When I go back into my gaming library in forty years, I will be missing FFXI and FFXIV for sure.
Well now knowing i have to pay a fee, this is considered a deal breaker to me. oh well.
I bet you pay a fee for Xbox live though?
That apparently wasn't a deal breaker for you since you would defend the Xbox 360 even if it funded the slaughter of innocent baby seals! Stop Bull-Sh*ting yourself and everyone else here.
Yeah... and Xbox LIVE wont cost you over $120 a year. Which this game will. MMO prices range from $12.95 - $14.95 a month, guys. Final Fantasy XI: ONLINE was $12.95 a month + $1 to the monthly subscription for every other character made.
Big hypocrite actually.
How am i a hypocrite Bob [email protected]? Huh? MMO cost WAY more than xbox live. You wanna compare a $50 charge to play ALL my games online everyday to a yearly cost of $120 for 1 game? You're ignorance is blinding. You were probably also one of the ignorant Sony Droids that got a second job and bought a PS3 on launch day without any games for it.
I'm hopeing that we get to pay out of our virtual wallets if so then I wouldn't care I would love it...and I also hope they get POL on this as well...or if anyone didn't like POL maybe someone diffrent for this game
but i won't pay subscription fees for any game.......so i guess i miss out.
if thi FF online too different from MMoRPgs such Wow and Everquest ?? I quit Eq2 a bit more then a year ago and I would like to give it a try and play a MMoRpG again. I just hope FF14 does not turn to be a second job to me ,lol.
I am going by just the picture where it says "Subscription Fees TBA". Every MMO has a subscription fee technically. The Agency & Free Realms subscription fee is FREE or $0.00 So they could update the site and have it be free. In any case I won't be playing this game nor any other game by S-E because they only make mediocre games so there is no point in wasting my time with this garbage (same with FF13 and everything else that they are involved with).
