Not again. Final Fantasy XI was atrocious. At this rate the game wont see the light of day until 2027 anyway. Square just seems to make money out of what Final Fantasy once was these days.

I never get why somebody would buy a game and then pay to play it. Those MMORG's are huge rip offs. I want them to focus on FFXIII and Versus.

I miss the 90's .

I don't mind spin offs as long as they are well made. Crisis Core for example is one of the best PSP games I've played. But then again on the other side of the scale you have Dirge of Cerberus.

The remakes aren't bad either, FF3 was a bit touch and go at parts but what I've played of the FF4 remake it's smashing. FF6 next please.

I do want them to bring out Versus before they focus on other games though. That game looks remarkable.

The remakes are great. Perhaps I should have worded that better. 'Re-releases'. Right now Square seem to be aiming for having all these retro Final Fantasies on the Playstation, the PSP, the GBA, the DS ... I mean, where does it stop. Where do you stop cashing in at some point and say 'hey we better get this original content out to the fans quicker'.

I agree, I think a balance needs to be established between original and established content. Like you said, have a new numbered FF every 2-3 years. Then perhaps maybe have a remake or a spin off (If it's good and justified) to appease fans inbetween releases.

Maybe they're working their way up? They've only got two more SNES FF's left to do for the DS. Maybe After they've done that the oft-rumoured FF7 remake will go into production?

They released a trailer for FFXIII, an english one. There's also some new info. Each character has their own summon. Snow has Shiva, Lightning has Odin (I think), and the cutesy red haired girl has Carbuncle (I think). There's also a new possibly playable character in that trailer too, a silver haired chap.

Apparently during battles you can only control one character but I'm guessing you'll be able to switch which character you control at will.



Let's hope we get soem info about Versus too.

I've decided to get this at last, it only costs £24 on Shopto, and I'm gonna use my £10 savings points to get it for £14, the game looks pretty decent IMO.

I've just been reading up on the housing in this game, apparently we can build our own houses, and share them with our friends/Guild. These are the three planned towns, they will be instanced, so that when one town gets filled up, a new instance will open, so houses will be unlimited

I've been playing this a lot for the past two days, I'm playing a Hyur Midlander, as the Marauder Class. The city I started in is Limsa Lominsa, which looks beautiful.



The graphics on the PS3 arent as sharp as the PC, but they are a lot better than you might expect them to be. The armour is done really well for an MMO, as a lot of MMOs give you generic armour that begins to look the same. The Moogles act as the mail service in Eorzea, and the look cute as heck.



The main story so far seems very interesting, and the side quests are in depth too, I've not had chance to ride a chocobo just yet, but I've just reached level 10, which means I can now rent one. They've also added in Inns, where you can rent a room and sleep in it, obviously when you get a house, you'll likely be able to sleep in that instead.

The PS3 controls are really well thought out, my only complaint would be the targeting system is a bit fidgety sometimes, but its nothing that can't be sorted out with a bit of work.

I snapped a few pics on my Vita (took photos of the TV) of my character, Arteas Rainer, before BETA phase 3 ended, he will be deleted now, but will return in Phase 4, when permanent characters are created. I love the detail of the armour in this game






In some better armour

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has managed to smash the previous record of concurrent users for an open beta.

The record was initially broken yesterday, when Director Yoshida tweeted that the servers were undergoing some serious stress due to there being 120,000 concurrent users. Because of this, Square Enix has had to add two additional servers in Japan. These two servers are called Typhon and Ultima.

However, less than 24 hours later, Square Enix had to update fans by stating that they had broken the record again - this time by having 150,000 concurrent users.

Despite this huge influx of users, apparently not too many people are interested in playing tanks. In another tweet, Yoshida appealed to gamers to play some more of the supporting roles in order to help balance the experience. There are apparently not enough Marauders or Gladiators in Eorzea.

The previous record for concurrent users in an open beta was held by Phantasy Star Online 2. This saw 107,259 players online at the same time on the 24th of July.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn releases on both the PlayStation 3 and PC in a few weeks. There's also a version planned for the PS4, which will appear at a later date.
