E3: Final Fantasy XIV trailer

E3:  Final Fantasy XIV trailer

One of the big announcements yesterday at Sony's press conference was Final Fantasy XIV, exclusive on PS3 (and PC). While this is huge news, keep in mind that it is a MMORPG and not your "average" Final Fantasy game. Still, quite the announcement. Trailer inside.

I have always loved Final Fantasy but I'm not sure if I'll be anticipating a game that demmands monthly fees to be played, especially in these crisis times.

Good news for the MMO PS fans I guess but I'll have to pass on this one just like I did with FFXI.

The thing is though, when you start playing an MMO, you tend to be more careful with your money when it comes to games. Games you were previously interested in might not warrant a purchase anymore. I used to hate the idea of a subscription but when I played WoW (for a couple of years) I found myself buying only maybe 3 or 4 other games a year, because I didn't really feel the need to be playing my console.

Maybe that's a bad thing as well though and just proves how addictive they can be lol.

I was so excited when they anounced it was an mmo i was disappointed. I play mmo's but FFXI never really clicked with me. I spent about a year and a half playing but I never really enjoyed. Just felt like I was playing it just to play it so I wouldnt be wasting the monthly fee.

but for the people who did enjoy FFXI guess this is good new for you guys/gals.

Ishigami~ actually if you look a little more carefully it's easy to tell that the 10 second part on the boat is in real time, the rest is all CG though.

They showed real time stuff back in 2005 or 2006 at the Microsoft E3 conference. It looked great back then, it should look better now!

But I am not really interested in MMO's. FF13 plz :P

It's released in the same year as FFXIII though, and then there is always Versus XIII, so it's not as if this is being made in place of a traditional FF.

For anyone that doesn't feel subscription games are worth it. Try it, wait for the 10 day trial to come out (Will most likely need to be a PC version). Using WoW as my example, since I've played WoW, I haven't really had much interest in buying another game except must have games eg Halo 3, GoW etc other than that, I know I would rather have 4 months play time on WoW than 1 month of a game that I am unsure will really be worthit. I passed on FFXI because I thought the 360 Beta was just too messy and all over the place but i'll deffo be willing to give this a go.

They are considering 360 for this game, they went back and forth many times prior to the official announcement, Seems likely to me it will come out on 360 actually. Im just disappointed its an MMO, ill be waiting for FFXV....

also note there is a short clip of irealtime in there

Seems like the UTIII situation.

having FFXI already on X360, for me makes no sense having somekind of restriction to put the game on the plataform, but what do we know. Show us the improvements over XI.

did anyone really ever believe it was PS3 exclusive (prior to the PC confirmation)? there really isn't any point to making an MMO exclusive to any platform other than the PC. I heard the announcement and i knew that it was at least going to be on the PC. The 360 isn't too hard of a gamble either.

as for it being an MMO...well, if they improve on FFXI. XI had some good stuff but personally i found that overall it really didn't stack up to WoW (who is obviously the 800 pound gorilla everyone's trying to topple).
at the very least even NCsoft has realized they need to start upping the pacing of their games if they want to appeal to more than the narrowest subset of mmorpg-ers (note Aion), and i always found FFXI had a pacing that made even kmmos feel like hares.

Exactly how I felt. I was watching the Sony conference when they announced it, and was like, WOAH!

Then I saw the full name (something the Sony reps conveniently did not say . . . several times) was Final Fantasy 14 Online, and I actually felt pissed off. I try getting into MMOs, but so many of them are nothing more than grindfests. I was okay with that style of RPG 15 years ago . . . even 10 years ago. But I just cannot handle endless grinding in video games any more. I'd much rather be out somewhere living real life, than grinding in a game.

I'm really stoked about this news, FF11 is probably my most favourite MMO, and from what they said at the conference today it seems they are making it more accesible to casual gamers.

OMG! this looks great!!! only on sony... that would be insane for an exclusive. . . well, there goes my social life for 2010, ffxiii and now this!!! XD

That definitely sounds like a bad thing. Even if that one game you're playing is good, not being able to play anything else because of it is a terrible thing. The fact they get shut down, or replaced with sequels such as this only puts me off even more.. After paying thousands just to play it, it all becomes a waste once the game is gone.

Old Republic is the only MMO that may change my mind, and I'm still hoping they do something different with the payment model.

I really loved the art direction. world, and general look of it...but the gameplay...in particular how you could not solo after lvl 10...and bunny rabbits raped like big bubba in the state pen. So if the make the game play a bit more friendly...then i would be interested. If not...behr, WoW will suffice.

This trailer is epic. Sure, nothing much is shown, but the colors and music is fabulous.

For those who worry about the fee, what is $10-$15 per month? Really, just about anyone can afford that. You easily spend that much on other junk each month. Why not spend it on a quality gaming experience?
