Final Fantasy XIV Released on PS4
Any news about new titles on either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One at this point is good news, regardless of what titles they might be. This week, Final Fantasy XIV: A Real Reborn will be making it's early access debut on the PlayStation 4, meaning players can jump onto the latest gen console to play the title.
Previously Final Fantasy XIV was released for the PC and the PlayStation 3, but a PlayStation 4 version has always been planned. However, development delays have slowed down the PS4 version release.
If players had already purchased the PlayStation 3 version, there is an option to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version for no cost, which means players can easily get access to the game on the PS4 in the most convenient way possible.
So far, transfer between PC and console versions is not capable, and once players have switched from PS3 to PS4, there will not be an option to play on the PlayStation 3 beyond the switching point.
For those that didn't know, Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn is a massively multiplayer online role playing game with a similar game infrastructure to World of Warcraft. The console version, just like the PC version, does have a monthly subscription fee, despite the original upfront cost for the title.
So far no details have been given on an Xbox compatible version, and whether players will be able to transfer their accounts from the PlayStation to the Xbox is unclear, but at this point it does sound unlikely, if Final Fantasy XIV does ever come to Xbox.
