I found an interview where the senior VP of Square Enix says that they are currently considering all options at this time including (there was emphasis on the following) Microsoft hardware. And that people interpreted the first announcement about it being on the PS3 to mean that it was gonna be a PS3 exclusive.

Actually, it's a Q&A transcript from E3.

Oh. Haha. I wasn't checking thoroughly. I only looked at the most recent posts on the 2nd page. Things posted in the last 2 days.

I see the transcript now. Vindicta's post from 6 days ago.

Edit: That guy in the video that he posted misled the people. He specifically said that the PS3 will be the only console you can play it on. Maybe he wasn't considering the PC as a console. Or he didn't think the Square Enix guys are still considering other systems to release it on.

For starters, PC isn't classified as a console.

Jack (the "guy in the video") did say that the PS3 was the only console you can play on. True, but since such news was the latest then, we can't say he misled the audience. PC was confirmed only after the Sony conference by SQEX.

However, SQEX too did mention that Microsoft platforms were currently being looked into. The possibility of having it on the Xbox is open.

Rumor on the beta period:

Quote:
Ah, rumors. We know the game was just announced, but there are three major reasons this rumor carries some weight. For one, Final Fantasy XIV has a 2010 release date, which makes sense considering the development team claims to have been working on the game for nearly five years now. Also, the dev team has expressed that they'd like to have a longer beta than the one Final Fantasy XI had -- one which was only around four months long.

The biggest piece of information regarding this rumor is its source -- discovered by newly built fansite Eorzeapedia -- of several Square Enix Europe job listings for new game testers and game masters. The listing is very clear that any applicants are required to have "good knowledge" of Final Fantsy XI, which ostensibly already has these jobs filled. If new people are being hired, it means the more seasoned team are being shifted to the developer's other MMO, namely Final Fantasy XIV. According to those listings, the new game masters begin work in early September.

Loose reasoning? Maybe just a little, but when considering the release date, development time and this new information it all seems to make sense. We'd love to get our hands on some FFXIV beta action any time this year, especially as early as September, so here's hoping it's true!
Rumor: FFXIV beta may begin by September - Massively

The TBA can end up being 0 (opleaseopleaseoplease)

Hmmm computer upgrade or ps3 purchase D: Probably computer upgrade, but my current box is so crap upgrading it would be just like buying a new one.
o the dilemma.

watever just release FF13 on PC too arrite?

Last week, Famitsu released its monthly Famitsu Wave DVD publication. Included on the disc was belated, but welcome, video of the interview with Producer Tanaka and Director Komoto that took place at E3. The interview had been written down by various Japanese media sites and paraphrased in a number of ways. It was nice to see the actual Q&A session itself, but again, there was a lot missing because it was chopped up and reorganized into sections. Still, it's not a bad way to spend 8 minutes, so you can check out the subtitled version of the video by clicking here.

The magazine that comes along with the DVD also had a page on Final Fantasy XIV. Specifically, it was two Famitsu editors, Lupin Kojima and Shingo Noguchi, just chatting a bit and joking about their reactions to the official trailer and announcement. Click below to check out what they had to say.

While the endless recycling of news may be good for the planet, players are pretty hungry for new bits of information. On the last page of Famitsu Wave, there was a ray of hope: Next month's issue will feature Final Fantasy XIV as the "Cover Game!"


This leads me to believe there will be some exciting news in store for the Gamescom event being held this month in Europe. Square Enix has also announced on their site that Final Fantasy XIV will be one of the games on display. Whether it will be the trailer or something more is unknown at the time. The ZAM team will have people at the event, so be sure to check back for the latest info!

I have never touched FFXI, but it seems FFXIV got some stuff to try it out, like they said about the "growth"...so there's no EXP system or whatever, you grow by doing whatever you're doing huh?

And I guess they want to step out of the box where the mmorpg now almost all have players decided their "job" when they created the character, now from the video it I almost they're saying that depend on your "growth" and weapon you use, you can be a different "job" at anytime you wished (like change weapon from sword to bow, your job change from warroir to bowman maybe? that sort of thing)

I quite liked FFXI so I look forward to seeing what FFXIV will bring.

FFXI was very well done for what it was-- more so than most MMOs. While clearly not fitting everyone's desires in a game, for what it was made to be, it did it marvelously.

Looks interesting... well at least the weapon/growth part. Everything else seems run of the mill. Hopefully it isnt all about the graphics.

It had a nice concept but I didnt like it because it was beginner freindly. Unless you buy gil at the beginning of the game or know high level people in the game it can be very difficult to play. Also I didnt like that there wasnt really much to do at endgame after you finish the expansion quests.

Final Fantasy XIV Races Revealed
Square Enix opens up on next year's big MMORPG event.

Quote:
August 5, 2009 - Square Enix has been pretty quiet on Final Fantasy XIV since its big surprise E3 announcement. But the silence came to an end today via Famitsu, whose latest issue has a huge update on the game.

The big reveal in the magazine are the game's character races. FFXIV will feature the following five:

Hyuran: The race with the highest population in Eorzea. They're split into midlanders and highlanders, depending on where they reside.

Miqo'te: A race of hunters that's split into day and night clans, referred to respectively as Sun Seekers and Moon Keepers.

Lalafell: A small-framed, highly intelligent farming people that originates from islands in the southern seas. They've now spread throughout the land, although there aren't too many of them in cold environments.

Elezen: This ancient race once ruled over Eorzea. They have excellent hearing abilities thanks to their ears, which stick out. While they once fought with the invading Hyuran, the two races now coexist almost completely peacefully.

Roegadyn: A large-framed sea going people based in the northern seas.

These races correspond, respectively, to FFXI's Hume, Mithra, Tarutaru, Elvaan, and Galka races. FFXI fans will probably recognize them instantly once Square Enix shares official artwork.

As detailed above, the Huyran and Miqo'te races are split into sub types. In an interview with the magazine, director Nobuaki Komoto wouldn't disclose if this character setting will play a part in the game.

Also introduced in the magazine are four job categories: fighter, sorcerer, gatherer, and crafter. These have sub jobs beneath them. Fighter includes swordsman and archer, for instance. Crafter includes blacksmith and cook. Traditional FF classes like Black Mage and Warrior are being avoided, said producer Hiromichi Tanaka to the magazine.

Using the game's Armory System, you can instantly change your character's class by making equipment and accessory changes. Your character earns experience in individual classes, learning new skills along the way. Based off your equipment changes, you can create a specialist in a certain job, or make your character into a jack of all trades.

Komoto noted that this system could be used by players who sometimes feel like adventuring on their own. They'd probably want a character who can both fight and heal.

FFXIV also features the Guild Leave system, which is basically like the quests you see in other online RPGs. Guild Leaves are special plates (in the artwork shown in the magazine, they look like cards) that adventurers can get through guilds. The plates direct you to perform quests based off your current level and status. Clear the quest, return to the guild, and you'll receive rewards.

It appears that Square Enix wants players to team up to clear these quests. The magazine suggests that players could get a bunch of quests together and plan a week of adventuring in advance. Only one player in your party needs to have a given Guild Leave in order to take on the quest. In fact, only the person hosting the quest gets the rewards at the end. The other players are in it just to build up their characters. Square Enix is considering making it so that it's easier to build up your skills when you're out on a quest.

To help out on your adventure, the game features something called Etelites. These are special stones located in major cities and areas. Play the person who manages a given Etelite, and you'll be able to use the device to warp to other areas of the FFXIV world.

The magazine also shared details on FFXIV's world setting. As detailed at E3 and in subsequent interviews, your adventure in Final Fantasy XIV begins in Eorzea, although this is just a part of the larger world known as Hydelin. Eorzea is split into city states, of which the magazine introduces three: the sand city of Urudan, the forest city of Guridania, and the sea city of Ramusa Rumansa.

If you're big on MMORPGs, you'll probably be expecting a dynamic world, with time and weather changes. FFXIV has just that. One day in Eorzea passes in about an hour of real world time.

Kawamoto mentioned one goal with the time aspect of the game. He wants the game to be enjoyed by people who play just a little bit every day. If, for example, you end up logging in at the same time every day, he hopes the game's time schedule works out so that you'll end up playing at a different time each time you log in.

Final Fantasy XIV is still due for release some time in 2010.
