PostSubject: FFXIV: PC Version ~ September 22nd; PS3 Version Delayed   Wed Jun 30, 2010 1:40 pm

Whoa, now this is severely unexpected, was entirely surprised to see this coming out so soon. Better have a good PC to play this on otherwise you PS3 owners won't be playing it for nearly another year! Now then this is of course posted official over on MMORPG atm, and I'm looking for official confirmation of this so stand by for more info!

You can pre-order the Collector's Edition on Amazon right now for $74.99 and even choose "release date delivery" to have it the day of...woohoo!

The Collector's Edition gets released on Sept. 22nd, but the regular edition doesn't release until Sept. 29th! So if ya wanna start a week early ya gotta get the Collector's Edition. I've already pre-ordered mine!








Quote :
Square Enix has announced that the Collector's Edition PC version of their sophomore MMO effort Final Fantasy XIV will be hitting store shelves on September 22nd, 2010. while the standard edition will launch roughly a week later on September 30th.

That's the good news.

The bad news? Hopes for a simultaneous release on both the PC and PS3 have been dashed, as the PS3 version won't make it until March 2011.

Ouch.

The PC Collector's Edition will include a behind-the-scenes DVD, a Final Fantasy XIV branded tumbler, a branded security token, a travel journal replete with concept art, an Onion Helm in-game item, the standard 30 days free of game time, a buddy pass for a friend, a voucher for a Right of Passage certificate (each with its own stamped serial number), and boxart illustrated by famed Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano.

The standard PC version will include the game disc, manual, and the requisite free 30 days of gameplay.
The game's subscription will run you $12.99/month, with an additional $3.00 for each extra character on the account, up to a maximum of eight. However, a single "retainer" character will be offered free of charge. This retainer character is non-playable but can be used to maintain item sales and storage. Additional retainer characters can be purchased for $1.00.

Beta and pre-order details were also revealed today. The beta is scheduled to go live sometime this July, and pre-orders are set to begin today. Standard edition pre-order customers will receive Garlond
Goggles which will offer bonus experience rates, while Collector's Edition pre-orders will receive the aforementioned Onion Helm in-game item.

Now for the crux. I was planning to get this for PS3. I would have to buy a keyboard and mouse and some type of laptable to play it. NOw that it is delayed, I guess I can get it for my PC, but here's the thing. I meet the minimum recs. Almost to the tee. This is what I have:

Windows 7 32bit OS
3gbs RAM
500gb hard drive, so no problems there.
AMD 64x2 dual core processor 3800 at 2.00ghz
Nvidia GTS 250 512mb video card
Brand new external soundcard(not an issue)

My guess is I could upgrade my processor and do fairly well compared to now. BUT, does anyone know what I should upgrade to and what the costs are?

yay pre ordered already... sadly its 2-3 days delivery even with the fastest option that costs about $10 extra and shipping estimate is sept 27 not 22...
not to mention another shipping time from my friend's in canada to me (hope fedex got the 1-2 days fast delivery) which i assume would cost me another $20... this game better be worth it...

Do you guys think this collector's edition will be available at gamestop as well? I really hope so. I know they haven't announced it yet. I check with gamestop everyday and they say just check back later. Just wondering if anyone knows this already.

More than likely have to look at them, cause you can't hide them in FFXI...

I wish their online Pre-Ordering didn't suck (gamestop). It wont even let me choose instore pick up and I can't pre-order at the store because that would require me driving to NY to pre-order it. >_>

Amazon is a pretty great place to pre-order from, too, since they guarantee release date delivery.

Best part about preordering from Gamestop store, in person that is, is I can pay in installments up to the day of release.
