    I’m going to wait for the PS4 version but this seriously makes me feel that I’m going to have a hard time being patient…

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Yeah, I don’t have that kind of patience, haha. I’ll just play the PS3 version, then get the PS4 version later and transfer my character.

      • shane239

        You wont have to transfer your character. It is a cross play game so, PS3, PS4 and PC will all be playing together! Just have a DX11 client as opposed to the DX9 client now so should be shiney :D

        • TetsuyaHikari

          Er… I meant “transfer” in a sense that I would be shifting from PS3 to PS4 ._.

          • Budgiecat

            When I find your character online I’m going to attack it with a moogle

            • TetsuyaHikari

              You’ll never find me, lol. I’ll probably be playing on a JP world since I like the community more.

  • new_tradition

    I think S-E seriously has one of the best marketing teams in the industry. I’m so hyped right now ♥

    • Budgiecat

      Where is Dragon Quest VII 3DS and Final Fantasy Type Zero

  • VaultBreaker

    Why people so excited for FF XIV ? I mean compared to Everquest Next,Guild Wars 2,Wildstar,and Elder Scrolls Online it doesn’t seems to be more innovative.Sorry about the wildstar,it’s just the ratchet and clank art style makes me nostalgic.

    • SuperLuigi

      It is taking everything I love about FF and making me be able to play it with friends. All the classes, chocos, mechs, a single player campaign type thing, voice acting, and as I said before playing with friends.

      • VaultBreaker

        So basically it is the strong fanbase that garner the interest?Thanks for clearing that up. :)

        • TetsuyaHikari

          Basically, yeah. It’s a fanbase thing. A lot of people on the beta forums have been referring to XIV: ARR as WoW 2.0, lol. Thing is… I can’t STAND WoW, honestly, but I’m perfectly fine with XIV: ARR.

          All it takes is a little flavor to make the same dish taste differently.

          • VaultBreaker

            WOW 2… lol just how many times it has been said already,anyway anybody would be king enough to inform me about the subscription fee for FF XIV?

            • Derpazu


          • Zero

            Which makes no sense. The game doesn’t play like WoW at all.

            It’s this really lazy comparison thing everyone does now days. Where, if an mmorpg has things similiar to WoW, it had to copy it from WoW.

            I think some people forget, WoW didn’t create all of it’s gameplay elements from scratch, it also borrowed from other classic games.

            • TetsuyaHikari

              This pretty much sums up how I feel when someone compares WoW to FFXIV: ARR and claims they are “stealing” ideas, heh.

    • VaultBreaker

      And before anyone backlash me,I’ve played the beta and it was pretty good.It’s just it’s nothing unlike what I played before

    • new_tradition

      Personally, I’m not an MMORPG player, but I looked into FFXIV because of the Final Fantasy name and all the elements chock full of dat nostalgia.

      Yeah, pretty superficial, but then I ended up enjoying what I played during the PS3 beta, and plan to stick with it as long as I can. I imagine there are other people in my position *shrugs*

    • Kobracon

      Nostalgia is definitely a large factor. Also innovation isn’t necessary for a good game. From what I played in the beta, its MMORPG basics done WELL, and thats important IMO.

      • Ronaconda

        It’s extremely polished and well-optimized. (which is nice) Also a few fun new things, like the FATES which remind me very much of Dynamic Events in GW2. Also I heard of a super-dungeon tower or some such dealing with Bahamut. Sounds intense.

    • Zero

      One important factor is remembering where XIV started, when you compare to where it currently is today. It’s very impressive how they have managed to save what was very much a broken game at launch. (I played version 1.0.)

      I also don’t think you can really compare it with other MMORPGs in that list.

      I’ve played Guild Wars 2, I think GW2 plays more action like. The game itself is all around “faster.” It’s also free to play, which does make a difference.

      I’ve been really impressed by what I’ve seen from Wildstar. The catch is, lots of people haven’t gotten a chance to play it. Including me. We can only judge from the developer videos and such.

      I’ve only seen a small bit of the Elder Scrolls Online, while I’m somewhat interested, it doesn’t remind of me XIV in the slightest. Which is a good thing. Like Wildstar, I really need to get a chance to play the game.

      I can’t hardly speak on Everquest Next, it’s still so early. It shows some early promise from what I’ve seen, but that’s about it.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      > guild wars 2
      > ESO
      yes you lost me right there when you are talking about innovation dear. Also EQnext has only brought promises nothing else at all as of right now.

    • Ferrick

      did… you just compare FFXIV to ESO, GW2 and EQNEXT ?

      EQNEXT is not even out yet

      Guild wars 2 is just meta-action that gets boring after a while

      and ESO is a huge disappointment, its nothing more than just Oblivion 2.5

      • Pyrofrost

        Let’s not forget the fact that P2P brings an entirely different (and better) community, game, and overall experience than B2P and F2P is capable of offering.

        • Ferrick

          lets not forget the most crucial thing that p2p has over b2p and f2p, they update much frequently and snuff out gold sellers and RMT-ers faster than the other two could

          best example would be GW2 (which still has some gold sellers to this date) and Aion which still has loads of gold sellers

  • Ronaconda

    This game has a bright future ahead. Also that music, so good!

  • Pyrofrost

    Goddamn it, it’s still not FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Budgiecat

    The battle system feels underwhelming to me. But thats how I feel about most MMO’s

  • wolverine2099

    it should be free to play.
