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.

    I love the seasonal events that the team creates, too! The music for the Hatching-tide event is extremely addictive… Pa-paya~!

    We’ve confirmed the codes are activated! Give it another shot and welcome to Eorzea!

yea I’d recommend to those who haven’t bought it yet to wait until PSN decides to act right and accept peoples registration codes:(

Ryumoau said:

April 14th, 8:04 am

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.

Too bad I can’t play, I keep getting error 20019. I feel so cheated.

To everyone who picked up the CE, I’m extremely jealous of your fat chocos and moogles. Just saying.

    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 ( 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).

The only MMO I really enjoyed was Guild Wars and I LOVE THIS GAME. Its really fun, and I appreciate the way it allows my friends and I to party up.

@ 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.

Do we have a free 30 days trial?

    Matt Hilton's Avatar

    Matt Hilton said:

    April 14th, 10:50 am

    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.

i cant seem to play. my activation code is way too long , i dodnt understand were to put this thing in????

    Matt Hilton said:

    April 14th, 10:52 am

    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. :)

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is already out on PSN free download. When I try to play it, it’s give an error.

Edzo04ps said:

Alright everyone should try their PSN code again because mine finally worked.

I hope my CE arrives soon. I ordered from SE’s store and there’s no tracking. It shipped awhile ago, so hopefully it shouldn’t take too long to get through customs.

Really want my fat chocobo. His face is soooo cute. <3

I purchased the game but can’t download it. Why? I did the beta phase a but deleted it since, now it says I can’t download it even though I purchased the full game. Help!!!

    You can find the software to re-download it in your “Library” on the PlayStation 4 home screen!

Damn. $40 + sub fee? This game is clearly not for me then.

Thank you so much, My kid (10 Years old) is playing on his PS3 and I’m (28 Years old) on my PS4. Excited now, I’ll grab a copy once I get back home am still out of town.

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?

    Matt Hilton said:

    April 14th, 2:51 pm

    The client was distributed for free for a limited time for Early Access users to purchase. If you downloaded that, you’ll need to input your code that came bundled with the game in the store!

ZombieMutt14 said:

April 14th, 2:41 pm

MY REGISTRATION CODE ISN’T WORKING!!!! It doesn’t seem long enough, it’s only (4-4-4)…

Matt Hilton said:

April 14th, 2:52 pm

4-4-4 is the correct number of digits for PlayStation Network codes – you redeem it on PlayStation Store using the “Redeem Codes” option at the bottom of the list!

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!

FuzzRaven said:

April 14th, 3:07 pm

I already registered the code on the PSN Store and the product registration code on Square Enix website. My mog central account / Square ID is linked to the PSN. Everything is set except for logging in once with the PS3.

– Hi!

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!!

    Matt Hilton's Avatar

    Matt Hilton said:

    April 14th, 6:13 pm

    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!

Azusa8756 said:

I used to play FFXIV on PC a year ago or so. I recently reordered it for my PS4 and played during early access. I entered my registration code from the game disc today will I get 30 days for free as well or do I have to set up a subscription?

    Matt Hilton's Avatar

    Matt Hilton said:

    April 14th, 6:13 pm

    When registering a new platform to an existing account (like PS4 as you mentioned) you will indeed receive 30 days of game time!

Azusa8756 said:

April 14th, 3:43 pm

I should add I am using the same service account as I was on the PC.

logs0331 said:

April 14th, 4:09 pm

So I bought the game through the PSN and it just downloaded automatically. I didnt get any code. Also when I go in and try to register I cant change my Square Enix Account. It just auto fills my psn account name. Anyone know what I should do?

Hey i need some help guys,
So i bought FF14 today for ps4 and i cannot sign up or sign in to play the game! I played the first beta they put out and now i forgot my password so i cant change my sign in ID or make a new one. Please HELP!

SV_GunSlinger said:

April 14th, 4:38 pm

I’m thinking about buying the physical disc through the store, but it keeps sending me to best buy or walmart or other retailers. Is it safe? Also, how am I going to get the code if I do that? is the retailer sending it to me?

Thanks for your help!

jmcmillan said:

April 14th, 5:49 pm

Why won’t the registration code work? Are the retail codes working? Cause i have been at this for over an hour and getting nowhere… just won’t launch…

April 14th, 6:27 pm

i just bought this game this afternoon via PS store. still i cant play it because its always says that i dont have a valid service account. i should purchased it on PS store, but i already purchased it! i just bought a game that does not WORK. I already did re-installing it and waited for almost 7 hours, the same issue pops out. if ur looking for registration code, SONY did not give me the code upon purchasing it. and i should have 30 days game time upon buying this game according to SE. anyone has the same issue regarding this matter? how would i fix this? should i get the refund from SONY or from SE?

Does it need a separate subscription and ps plus or only ps plus subscription ????

    Matt Hilton said:

    April 14th, 7:01 pm

    It’s a separate subscription and PlayStation Plus is not required to play.

d1_dio said:

April 14th, 6:35 pm

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.™-Version-Current-Known-Issue-With-The-EU-PlayStation-Store-Download-Version?p=2031781#post2031781

    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 said:

    April 14th, 7:01 pm

    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!

i need some explanation with my issue, how to fix it. i already sent emails to mogstation, even one there is no reply yet.

d1_dio said:

April 14th, 7:06 pm

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.

I’m having the same issue. My (wrong) username is already entered in and it won’t let me change it. Who’s brilliant idea was that? My rare night of gaming is screwed now.

i put the right username that i used from beta2, still invalid account service.. they just like produce a game that was broken for ps4

Seriously, on a launch day and you don’t extend the support hours for chat or phone and emails only get responded to those hours as well? I are you TRYING to lose customers already?
