If this is anything like FFXI then it is doomed to fail I'm sorry to say. I'm completely surprised they announced it though but why they announced it while they were still working on FFXIII/Versus/Agito is beyond me. On top of that, they still have KHBBS to work on.
Most of the funds that Square has made so far were put into XIII's budget (Or so I believe, since they've been releasing the same stuff over and over), so I don't think this game will do very well. Unless they plan on releasing more remakes/ports in order to fund this one too.
I wonder if there will be a fee.
From what I understand PS3 online is free right?
There is no way this will be free. It's going to be a full blown MMO just like XI.
The online will be free but this may be a pay to play game (with the disk containing containing no maps, lack of customization, only default weapons, etc.)
Either way, this is still doomed to fail. If the gameplay is anywhere near the same as FFXI, this is gonna fall badly. Why the hell are they making it as an MMO? Final Fantasy games suck as MMO (as demonstrated by FFXI). Huge disappointment.
I don't know Japan's sale stats, but I have to assume that the PS3 sales must be ridiculously high over there for them to justify this crap a second time.
I found the official site.
They lied. It's not exclusive to the PS3 if its coming to PC as well.
I think it's going to be released for Windows too.
I wonder if they would bring over the retarded week long boss fights too lmao
They didn't lie about PS3 exclusiveness, they said PS3 is the only 'console' it'll be on, saying it that way makes more of an impact so yeh
Man, they're already numerous projects to work on. Oh well, I'm still waiting for FFXIII Versus & Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.
Just to clarify, SquareEnix is so big and powerful they could be working on 5 different RPGs and still have resources to pull all minor plataforms like DS, iPhone and PSP. Besides, every fist Final Fantasy announcement is at least two years prior it's release, so expect it to come on 2011 for US and EU.
Funny now I understand why FFXI was never fully 'ported' to PS3, this means that FFXIV was already in planning or in development some months back.
Edit: Too many roman numbers.
It's a simultaneous worldwide release. We'll get it 2010 so its not long of a wait. And yes I do believe you're right. After doing research on the game, I found it that the game was codenamed "Rapture" which they hinted at back in 2005 which means its been in development for almost 5 years. Funny thing, "Rapture" was in development for PS3, Microsoft Windows, and 360 and why they'd drop it for 360 is beyond me but maybe its hinting it won't be a PS3 exclusive for long. Also this was in development longer then all 3 FFXIII games so maybe it won't be all shit and it will actually be good. We may have jumped the gun too soon..
