Easy transitions are good.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is currently available on the PlayStation 3, and it will eventually come to Sony's new console as well. But if you're already playing it on the PS3, will you have to purchase the game again for the PS4?

No. Square Enix has announced that those who own the PS3 version of the recently re-launched A Realm Reborn will be able to upgrade to the PS4 version for free. You won't lose your hard-earned character data, either. Furthermore, it was revealed that a new beta test for the PS4 installment will start on February 22, 2014, which is coincidentally the same day as the system's Japanese launch date . No date was given for the launch of FFXIV PS4.

The game has struggled with server issues since arriving, which has resulted in an apology from Square Enix and refunds for many of those affected. Here's hoping everything will be resolved ASAP.

Well, looks like I will be buying a PS3 copy today off Amazon. I haven't had any issues on the PC for a week. All is well in Siren.

Yeah, same here. I'm on Hyperion and I've been able to log in – absolutely whenever I want – with no issues at all. It's a terrific experience now.

I heard from another gamer that all parties need a White Mage and barely anyone wants to be a White Mage and that makes the gaming experience less desirable.

Is this information true?

I'm a white mage and loving it. A healer is needed for the big battles, that is correct. I haven't seen a lack of white mages.

With how the game works pretty much everyone is everything eventually.

During all the closed betas, there were plenty of healers, myself included on Diablos server. If anything there was more text in the chats asking for 'tanks'.

Let's just say, when the healer's down the whole party can quickly fall apart. 😛

Well damn. I would hope so considering they are way over their financial quota. This is probably going to rake in even more sales. Smart move Square.

And to the guy above, if you have potions your fine. I use hi potions all the time and then theres even elixirs. Certain classes, like Monk, can heal themselves and others. I play as a gladiator so potions are my personal way of healing. People whine about all kinds of things that i haven't had issues with. Granted in dungeons a white mage is a requirement. And there is a ton of them running around. People think waiting 10 seconds extra makes a game bad, and believe me, 10 seconds isn't much in Eorza.

it would actually. the problem when it launch was that the producer severely underestimated how much the game would sell so they basically didnt have enough room. at least now they have a minimum number to start with, the people who bought ff14 for ps3.
