Hello Matt,

I already upgraded my PS3 to PS4 on 11 April. I love this game. I hope to get playing later today. The game looks incredible on the PS4.

I hope you guys and gals will continue to do more fun themed stuff like the Easter eggs currently out.

Cheers!!!

i’ll wait for this to either be free to play or at least let us download the game client free from psn and just take subscriptions from us. It makes little sense for me to pay $40 for the game plus a monthly subscription fee.

    You can always use the Mog Station’s Digital Upgrade service to get the digital in-game bonus items (like the Fat Chocobo, wind-up Moogle, Coeurl mount, and more!)!

    Just visit the Mog Station (http://sqex.to/Msp) select your account and select the option to “Upgrade to the Digital Collector’s Edition”! :)

Problem with this game is that it falls to standard “themeparkitis” and becomes nothing but an instance/ raid que/ grind at the end. Yes, you can craft or do housing or waste your time in a myriad of ways, but to be competitive – which is the underlying point of these games next to community engagement – you do the standard gear-treadmill. Its a shame, because the world and aesthetics are so brilliantly done.

I will say this though, after playing it on a top-end PC for a number of months, the PS4 version (beta) was shockingly close in terms of performance and IQ to the PC one. So they did a really good job programming the game (lag issues with certain regions that are still unresolved, aside).

@ Ryumoau – Final Fantasy XIV ARR will NEVER be free to play. Get over it. Game is less than $20 for the client now anyway.

Anyhow, I am taking a break from FF14, probably until patch 2.3 or so.

    Yup! All new platform registrations (like registering the PS4 version) will grant 30 days of in-game time. Please note that users upgrading from the PS3->PS4 version will not receive 30 days of time, though.

    The activation code included with the game is found on the sheet labeled “Registration Code” – it is 12 digits (in a 4-4-4 format) and is a standard PlayStation Network code that you redeem on PlayStation Store.

    Perhaps you’re looking at the Square Enix Members point code? That is unrelated to registering the game to play. :)

Hey, I downloaded for free from the PSN about 3 days ago but it never worked! It always shows this message “Cannot launch FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn. Please purchase it from the PlayStation Store or register the promotion code included with your package” even though there is no code on the PSN. Tried deleting and downloading it again, but it didn’t work! What is the problem?

I bought the PS3 retail disk version last year during Black Friday but never used it on the PS3. I don’t own a PS3 now as I sold mine after getting the PS4. I bought the PS3 version knowing that I can upgrade it to the PS4 for free. Now it needs at least one time log in via the PS3 to upgrade to the PS4. Can anyone with a copy and a PS3 log me in with my account on your PS3 so I can use it to upgrade to the PS4 version? I know this is a bit far-fetched but maybe someone nice would actually want to help me out? Thanks!

I dowloaded the FFXIV game today and then went and bought the collector’s edition from the Playstation Store. No codes has been given to me and I paid 60$ for the game. Is there any way for me to redeem my code to play with my PS4? It’s not an upgrade or a transfer from a PS3. Please help me!!

    When buying via PlayStation Store, the code is seamlessly redeemed for you and you do not need to manually enter one. After it finishes downloading, you simply need to log in!

@Matt
I bought PS4 about 3 days ago and when I signed up for PS+ FFIXV was available to download for free, there was no code involved. When I press start it doesn’t even show any field to put a code, just that message. The FFXIV account on twitter addressed this issue today, but at this link there is no way to get in touch with them without a square enix account, which I don’t have.

    What you downloaded for free was just the game software itself – it was made available for Early Access users to download. If you wish to play, you’ll either need to purchase it from the PlayStation Store, or buy a physical copy. A physical copy will come with a 12-digit PSN code (4-4-4 style) that you redeem in the PSN store (Redeem Codes).

    So, sorry for the confusion, but what you downloaded was not the “full game” so to speak, and you will need to purchase it to play.

Hi Matt,

I purchased a Ps4 standard edition copy this morning and have been trying for 3+ hours to register and play. Ive entered the registration code and registered my copy at square enix, installed all updates etc but im able to link my PSN account with my square enix account. Also when i start the game it only gives me an option to click saying i already possess a square enix account, and when i click that it does not allow me to change the ID which appears in the log in information. I did sign up for the beta but that password does not work anymore. When i click saying I’ve forgot my password it says that neither the Beta account email used or the new account I’ve just created is a registered square enix email account.

    + Matt Hilton on April 14th, 2014 at 7:01 pm said:

    It isn’t possible to unlink a Sony Entertainment Account from a Square Enix account once they are linked (so you can’t change that auto-filled in account). When you put in your email account to reset the password, keep in mind that sometimes entering in text using the virtual keyboard will auto-capitalize a word after a period. For example, your email might have been registered as “Yourname@email.Com” or “yourname@email.Com” (with the “Y” or “C” capitalized). Try that and see if you can reset your password.

    If not, please contact our Support Center!

Thanks for clarifying that, Matt. Still, I think it’s strange that they didn’t say that on PSN and advertised it as ready to play, specially because they addressed the issue I’m talking about. Nonetheless, PS+ fee and FFXIV fee are a ripoff.
