261w ago - Update: The [Register or Login to view links] site has now been updated officially to reflect this.

Last week we reported that Square Enix launched Final Fantasy XIV Beta application sign ups, however, these currently do not include the PS3 version of the title.

The good news is that Siliconera.com (linked above) has revealed that those who got their hands on a copy of Final Fantasy XIII also should have received a campaign code used to apply for the PlayStation 3 Final Fantasy XIV Beta.

As of now, there's no other way to get access to it!

To quote: "The Final Fantasy XIII bonus item does two things.

The twenty digit code packaged with the first shipment of Final Fantasy XIII gives future Final Fantasy XIV players a secret item when the MMO debuts next year.

Before that happens, the campaign code is also a ticket to apply for the PlayStation 3 Final Fantasy XIV Beta."

278w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a Final Fantasy XIV PlayStation 3 GamesCom interview tonight on the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: Many of you have been asking about Final Fantasy XIV since its announcement a few months back at E3.

During my Gamescom Cologne stay, Square Enix invited me to a small roundtable discussion (along with some new friends at [Register or Login to view links]) with Final Fantasy XIV producer Hiromichi Tanaka and Sage Sundi. Our 30 minutes flew by, but we definitely got to some good stuff, which you can read in its entirely below.

PlayStation Blog: You recently talked at E3 about how the game closely relates to Final Fantasy XI. How have the monsters and races changed from FF XI to XIV.

Hiromichi Tanaka: Because we're using a new graphic engine, the graphics are really different from FFXI and you can see more details on both monsters and races. Regarding the races, to encourage people to shift smoothly from FFXI, you will see very similar types of classes. But if you actually make your own character, you'll be able to select your own colour of hair, skin, eye color, shape of your face, etc. There will be a wide range of variety to customize.

PSB: After E3, you mentioned...

The battle and job systems will be different than the one previously used in Final Fantasy XI, which utilized experience points, and that the character races and monsters will resemble those found in Final Fantasy XI to allow players to create avatars similar to ones created in Final Fantasy XI.

Group play has been de-emphasized, and now solo and group play have been balanced... while weapon use will alter "character development".

The Web site contains new screenshots, a trailer and details on the game world's storyline, locations and races. There's also a brief overview of the game's mechanics, including the various skillsets a player can specialize in.

For those curious, Final Fantasy XIV will be heading to Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Windows in 2010.
 

Final Fantasy XIV Screens & Details from Dengeki Magazine out!

200°
281w ago - Today some Final Fantasy XIV screens and details have surfaced from Dengeki PlayStation Magazine.

Most of them are simply landscape screenshots, however, in one the crystal structure is rumored to be a method of quick transportation from area to area.

The cards pictured are reportedly part of the Guild Reeve system, or Guild Leave as IGN has translated, and using it players combine cards into sets that determine their quests... with varying combinations resulting in different obstacles they will face.

To quote: "The first card contains a picture of Saint Danafen, the dragon killer. This type of card would require you to gather up your courage and overcome many difficulties while eliminating fearsome monsters. The card in the middle is of Saint Totoru the Rat-Hunter.

You will receive gratitude from people by helping them out with different tasks like getting rid of pests. Saint Murugin appears in the last card, forging a sword. This card has you focusing on polishing your skills in order to help out other people. Other Miqo'te and Hyuran saints can be seen on other cards."

Square Enix currently has Final Fantasy XIV slated for an international simultaneous release in 2010.
