Final Fantasy XIV – Can It Be Fixed for PS3?

From the article:

"Final Fantasy XIV is out now on PC and is scheduled for release some time in March 2011 for PlayStation 3. As the second Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG or MMO) in the Final Fantasy series (the first being Final Fantasy XI) Final Fantasy XIV will also be the first MMO to be released on PlayStation 3 (unless DC Universe Online gets there first). Sadly, despite the hopes of many games, the PC version of Final Fantasy XIV has had a pretty poor reception so far, generally focusing on a whole host of playability problems. So what’s gone wrong, and will Square-Enix be able to set things right in time for the game’s release on PlayStation 3 next year? "

Even if they did I won't pay €12 a month on top of the €50 for the game.

I sure hope so, I been looking forward to this game since it was announced. But the PC reviews are kinda of scaring me away?? And no I haven't plated the PC version to see for myself.

People are overreacting to this. FFXIV is perfectly fine. Its a new MMO, it isn;t perfect but it isn't terrible either. I love it.

Exactly what I was thinking.

It seems since it's so popular to hate on SE that no one stops to think that the issues Final Fantasy XIV is having are common for many new MMO's. Many for get that WoW had no real auction house at launch and neither did Everquest or Final Fantasy XI and yet those games are still going today.

The interface has been adjusted about 4 times now and each time it has gotten faster. And in the upcoming major November update they are planning on adding new shortcuts and sub menus to make things much quicker.

The stuff FFXIV is going through are the things nearly every MMO goes through. The difference here is that SE is fixing them quite quickly going as far as to announce publicly what they are fixing when it's happening and giving players another free month so the fixes will be in place before they start paying.

After Mid December the 2 Major updates will have fixed every issue all the bad reviews have had. Such as interface, Market System, communication, Maps, Content, Lag, and so on and so forth.

The PS3 version will be a entirely different game by the time it comes out.

there's time maybe the pc release was a way to further beta test the game and get paid while doing so.

it should be free 2 play forever especially since the bad press about it.
