26w ago - Square Enix Senior Online Community Manager Matt Hilton confirmed today that Final Fantasy XIV PS4 is coming on April 14th alongside revealing the PlayStation 4 Collector's Edition below.

To quote: Since Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the second MMO in the Final Fantasy series, was released on PC and PS3 , more than 1.5 million accounts have been registered, and filled more than 60 worlds with a living, breathing community.

And since then, PS4 has been released, and millions of you have welcomed the new console into your homes. But admit it - you felt that something was missing, didn't you?

Final Fantasy and PlayStation have been a dream team since the early days, and good friendships never die. So we're happy to announce that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will begin beta on February 22nd, and then launch on April 14th.

But that's not all. What would Final Fantasy be without a sumptuous Collector's Edition? If you want to know more, read on!

You will defend the realm of Eorzea against a smorgasbord of enemies - no, I'm not even kidding, you should be happy if something doesn't constantly try to snap you in half or just save itself the trouble and swallow you whole to begin with. In a world like this, an adventurer needs any help he can find.

32w ago - Square Enix Senior Online Community Manager Matt Hilton invites fans to save the snowmen in Final Fantasy XIV's holiday celebration which is begins today.

To quote: With the recent release of [Register or Login to view links], the first major content patch for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, we're pleased to introduce a fun seasonal event for players to enjoy.

The annual Starlight Celebration has returned, and the citizens of the three city-states have done their best to decorate the towns for the occasion. Unfortunately, the snowmen they ordered from the frozen north were kidnapped (Snownapped?) en route!

Adventurers around the realm must get to the bottom of this chilly mystery and find out why the snowmen have disappeared. Could it be the mischievous imps behind the attacks? Save the snowmen, save the world.

Those adventurers willing to brave the elements will be rewarded handsomely with new seasonal outfits designed around a snowman, reindeer, and even a set of "red and white" gear that matches a certain someone's outfit... There's even cute reindeer barding to equip your personal chocobo with. The Starlight Celebration will be available until December 31st, 2013, so be sure to join in.

After you complete...

48w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe French Community Manager Aurelie Reman shared an interview today covering the past, present, and future of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn below.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] launches tomorrow on PS3. To celebrate the launch, PlayStation.Blog sat down with Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida to talk over A Realm Reborn's long gestation and epic ambitions.

PlayStation.Blog: Which element of A Realm Reborn is most going to surprise PlayStation players?

Naoki Yoshida: I think one of the big things will be the amazing graphics, which really push the limits of PS3's technical capabilities, as well as the fact that this is an MMORPG experience. Also, MMORPGs are most usually controlled using a keyboard and mouse, but our Cross Hot Bar system we've developed specifically for the DualShock allows for smooth and exciting play, so that's another area of interest for PS3 players.

PSB: What improvements have you made since the original PC release of Final Fantasy XIV?

Yoshida: I think that improvements can be roughly split into three areas: to regain the trust of the players, to fundamentally rebuild the game experience from the ground up, and - most...
