Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Coming To PlayStation 4 Sooner Than You Expect

By Ishaan . August 29, 2013 . 1:00pm

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is out this week on PC and PlayStation 3, but the MMORPG is also headed to the PlayStation 4 at some point in 2014.


While Square Enix haven’t specified just when in 2014 Final Fantasy XIV will be available for PlayStation 4, in a recent interview with 4Gamer, producer Naoki Yoshida shared that the PS4 version will be released sooner than you might expect.


Yoshida added that the transfer service is being worked on so players can feel comfortable playing the PS3 version of the game in the meantime.

    I wish I wasn’t one of the many of people who made the mistake of buying the faulty version on PSN in EU before they took it from the store. :(

    • Did you reported that, so that they can give you a refund?

      • Razzlero

        They are not giving refunds currently, one person who really pushed for one was told he had to wait a week until he would be let know if he could get one… and worst of all people who have bought physical copies after getting the error still can’t play it because the error carries over.

        I was brushed aside by a stock e-mail from sony. Didn’t even look like they read my e-mail. And square haven’t replied to me yet.

        If you can be bothered to read it all here is a thread on the playstation forums about it.

        • Well, that sucks.

        • FKJ CHON

          I bought the Japanese PSN version, and I had to navigate to the PSN store and find another item to download. The file is around 60k in size and after that I was able to have FF14 preorder items and the game under PSN Game services.

  • Good. Hopefully the PS4 version gets a collector’s edition too.

    • Dagobert

      Did you miss out on the PS3 and or PC collectors edition as well?

      • Yeah. Didn’t have money for it.

        • Dagobert

          Sucks. I was being lazy to pre-order it because I thought it’d be like the WoW collectors edition or like most games where you still find it in stores months after the release of the game.

    • Solomon_Kano

      This. I’m holding off on getting it til the PS4 version hits, so it’d suck to find out I missed out on a nice CE.

      • AndyLC

        Maybe PS4 players will get an FFXV themed exlcusive item?

        • Solomon_Kano

          That would actually be pretty cool. Haven’t quite seen enough of XV to picture what would make a nice item, but that’d be awesome.

  • Nice =^_^=

  • Spirit Macardi

    Oh wow, Lord Cthulhu got a beta invite! Wouldn’t have expected him to play a mage though.

    • Just goes to show, even the Elder Gods love a good Final Fantasy title! Especially when it’s the best new FF title since a decade ago. Heh, but maybe Cthulhu was the cause of the Open Beta/Early Acces/Launch time issues! Unspeakable Horrors, indeed!

  • Dagobert

    I hope theres a collectors edition available for the PS4 so I don’t miss out on that.

  • Franggio Hogland

    Anyone know if it would cost anything going from PS3 to ps4?

    Have the pc version since 1.0 and new CE for pc as well.

    • Kalis Konig

      Rumor has it that the transfer will be free or either you will have to pay a small transfer fee. There hasn’t been any official word yet.

      • Franggio Hogland


        Oh well I’m not rich but I reckon I can afford it.

  • Kaitsu

    I wonder if you’ll be required to have PSN Plus for the PS4 version. It’d suck to pay two subscriptions(unless you already have PSN plus, of course).

    • neo_firenze

      Probably not, if FFXI is any indication. XI was the only 360 game that didn’t require Xbox Live Gold to play online (it did require its own monthly subscription fee, which lets you play on any platform – PC/PS2/360).

      Rumor has it that one reason XIV is on Sony consoles and not Microsoft is that MS was unwilling to agree to that same setup again, and it was a must have for Square Enix.

  • ianschopa

    Have they said if you can transfer from PC to PS4?

    • Jordan Coleman

      Why would there be any issues? It should simply be “here put this PS4 code in” just like it is with PS3 and PC.

      • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

        Yeah, but it would be nice to get a reduced price for transfer from PC to PS4 as well. Proving console version have mouse and keyboard along with controller support like PC for targeting. Would make sure I get more use out of my PS4. Need something to make sure I play with it more. Afraid that having FFXIV on PC, my PS4 might be ignored when it arrives.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    This game is cool! I got to level 15 on my second day of playing it.

  • spartan0078

    It makes sense to see it sooner rather than later. PS4 is literally a locked down PC that uses 64bit architecture, should port to the console quite well from PC.
