The unveiling of Final Fantasy 14 at yesterday's Sony press conference has been a surprise. Today, Square Enix has released the first direct-feed screens from Final Fantasy XIV Online.
Console exclusive to Playstation 3.
Finally. The MMO's have been taking forever. I guess it's safe to say 2010 is the year of the console MMO. Also Champions Online for 360, Agency and DC Universe for PS3. And most of all I want to see what NCSoft has been making in their deal with Sony hopefully Blade and Soul for PS3 not just PC is one of them, because that game looks sick. I'm glad to see a male lead (even though it's an MMO) in Final Fantasy that's not a chick with a little too testosterone. He has a really unique look especially for a JRPG well JMMO. I guess that's square trying to become more Westernized even though he looks more European which I guess is still to the west of Japan unless you travel east ;)
An MMO game is going to look exactly like that... @Vicophine: May there be good reason for it t be console exclusive you mean.
I see what you did there.
OK they said its online. Is it deffinatly an MMO? I havent read anything from SE saying MMO. Edit.. Yep found something. It is an MMO. Damn! I just dont have the time to sink 1000s of hours into an MMO. A shame really :( Great for MMO fans though Edit 2.. Well not a shame, still have FFXIII to look forward to. Mixed emotions lol
Im so excited about FFXIV. I can only imagine the issues they had with FFXI will be addressed and fixed in XIV.
Not like FFXI doesn't have its problems. The PC version especially is a pain. @pumpkinpunker: Pretty sure he's talking about the 2 hours it takes to make a character. Forget that, aside from BC PS3 can play the PS2 version, Square is - finally - porting the game to the PS3. Which sort of makes FFXIV coming out more surprising. That Square would waste resources on the FFXI port.
"Im so excited about FFXIV. I can only imagine the issues they had with FFXI will be addressed and fixed in XIV. " What issues? you mean how it sucks? No one gave a crap about FF XI because it's on the 360 and not the PS3. It also is a pretty mediocre MMO. All of a sudden a FF MMO is a big deal because it's a PS3 exclusive. ROTFLcopter. Do Sony fanboys have ANY shame? I mean, one little ounce? Thanks, I'll stick to WOW.
Why are you trying to turn this into a fanboy war? If you read his comment, he was hoping for Square to fix the problems from FF XI...... Stop being an idiot.
ffxi was mainly on PC and PS2 and while playing it people made fun of x360 owners playing it. Proof I played it
Sweet Jesus pumpkin...what the hell's wrong with you? *shakes head* Anyways, I never really played a MMO so I'm looking forward to this. It's about time Square stopped ignoring the PS3.
I loved FFXI. I will buy this 1st day. I hope they fix balanced that was removed in FFXI after ToAU expansion..
Just to see what its like. Im not an mmo fan
This push towards MMOs on consoles will backfire. There are already too many of them in development with publishers trying to recreate the success of World of Warcraft on consoles. And it's funny all of a sudden seeing PS3 fanboys using the term "console exclusive" when they previously argued to the death that there was no such thing; a game is exclusive or it isn't. The power of convenience right?
stupid article, got me excited for trailer screens.. we seen that.. dumb posters.
I just started thinking that this might be for the PS3 since the 360 already has FF11.
Console exclusive to Playstation 3. so
Super awesome MMO. Too bad it was too hardcore for most people.
WTF are you talking about Fanboy? I have FXI on the 360 and the game (not 360's fault) had loads of issues such as items not being dropped after 3 hours of countless dynamis fights along with some technical issues. Fun yes but I had its problems. And I hardly wouldnt call it a bad game, it was fun at the time and by your comment I'm guessing you are a 360 fanboy?!?!? please check those ignorant fanboy comments at the door.
This is still big news, another Final Fantasy! They already have in-game screens at 8 and 9. Too bad that it had to be an mmo though.
Wtf are they thinking? Announcing FFXIV before FFXIII is out. It's not even due until next year lol! Marketing 101...
Great: "FFXIV will be coming to the PS3 & PC. They are currently considering other hardware (including Microsoft hardware!) " Square-Crapenix strikes back!!! I knew this won't be an exclusive for long... sadness. Hope the same won't happen with VS.... it's the only episode i'm waiting for ;(
theyd be broke by the end of this month. Seriously its an mmo which means they want as many people on there so we can all pay them like 10 or 15 dollars a month. I would put it on the wii if i could.
if they have so much time to create this CG for the XVI, they should just try to finish up the XIII earlier and that would do all gamers a big favor, and perhaps win their lost reputation back a little.
