Sony Shares Final Fantasy XIV PS3 Update - Interview, New Details

350°
132w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fabio Santana of Brazil has shared a fresh Final Fantasy XIV PS3 update today including an interview and new details below, as follows:

When it was first launched back in 2010, Final Fantasy XIV for PC was criticized by players and the media, and eventually the planned PS3 version was postponed. Since then, Square Enix decided to reshuffle the leading developers of the game, with Naoki Yoshida now acting as Director and Producer.

His challenge is to helm the 2.0 version of [Register or Login to view links], which is a re-imagination of the original release. It will mark a new beginning for the game when it gets launched this winter, coinciding with the release of the anticipated PS3 version.

The game was not ready to be demoed publicly at E3 this year, but we got a chance to see a brief live demo behind closed doors of the game still running on a PC. It featured lush visuals, with a richly detailed character running through a forest area with dense vegetation and impressive lighting effects passing through foliage.

It was something we definitely aren't used to see in an MMORPG. "Right now it's optimized for PC. We're about 50% into the development of the PS3 version, but it's pretty much how it's going to look on the console...

233w ago - Square Enix recently announced that the PC version of Final Fantasy XIV will arrive this September while the PS3 version is delayed until March 2011, and according to FFXIV producer Hiromichi Tanaka the reason for the delay on Sony's PlayStation 3 is due to technical issues.

In a recent interview with [Register or Login to view links] he explained as follows, to quote:

If possible, we would publish the game sooner, we would like to start as soon as possible the beta on PS3."

After a short break, our [Register or Login to view links] coverage continues now with [Register or Login to view links].

A new trailer was shown at our E3 press conference, which we've included below. After that, our Jaffa Cake-eating colleague dropped by the [Register or Login to view links] booth for a quick chat on the console-exclusive PS3 edition of this MMORPG.

So I was just passing through the Square Enix booth at E3 and I noticed a door slightly ajar. I can never resist a slightly ajar door so I poked my head in to find Hiromichi Tanaka, senior vice president of software development, sitting down for a Final Fantasy XIV round table interview. There was a spare seat so I sat down, whistling behind a newspaper, and asked a few questions of my own.





As an extra titbit, there was PC monitor running the game in stereoscopic 3D in the same room, although Tanaka told me that this was purely a technical demonstration and he wouldn't be drawn when I asked if they...
 

Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) PS3 Beta Test Sign Up Begins

550°
247w ago - Yesterday I got an e-mail from Sqare-Enix presenting Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) and informing me that the sign up for PS3 Beta tests have started.

So I want to share it with the community that every one who is interested can sign up now for the Beta test.

From the game's plot: Eorzea's nations used to be constantly at war with each other until fifteen years ago when the Garlean Empire, a mysterious nation from the east, razed the mightiest of the city-states, Ala Mhigo.

The nations decided to band together if they were to repel the invaders, but the Empire never came, leaving a state of detente throughout the land.

The resulting peace has led to a wide swath of soldiers and mercenaries suddenly without a job, and so they're now forming guilds and going by a new name: adventurers.

Finally, below is a Final Fantasy XIV "Life in Eorzea" #1 video from the launch of the new YouTube channel!
