The PC version emerged half-broken from the development room, but given the extra time, PlayStation 3 owners are hoping for an extremely spruced-up version next year.
So how are things looking for Final Fantasy XIV on the PS3? Well, Square-Enix has finally started talking , and both producer Hiromichi Tanaka and director Nobuaki Komoto spoke about the current issues and how the team is optimizing the game for Sony's machine. Tanaka confirmed "some small visual differences" but also said they're working hard to "get the maximum performance out of the PS3's CPU." In the end, we should – theoretically – barely be able to notice the graphical differences. They also said PS3 players will play on the same servers as PC players and in order to encourage the two groups to play nice, Komoto said they might give merits to groups when they accept newcomers. There's also a chance that the PS3 version will get a few new tutorial elements; they might be added when Square-Enix issues a significant update for the PS3 version when it releases. The question is whether or not they can turn what many have called an unplayable game into a worthwhile experience…
Is it too soon to ask about Final Fantasy XV ? Yeah, probably is. Oh well.
