Very interesting take on F2P vs SUBS by Yoshida

F2P = Money grab. Glad to see FFXIV won't take that route.

So rather than going for the huge $100-million-a-month hit that you might get with the free-to-play model, having that steady income allows us to provide a better product to the players.


We believe that the bigger the game, the larger the scale of the MMO, it’s going to be better for the game if it’s on a subscription model.

“Star Wars is free-to-play now, it’s great!” But then you ask them if they’re playing free-to-play Star Wars and they say, “No, not really playing it.” Everyone talks about how great it is that it went free-to-play, but then you ask around and really, there aren’t that many people who are playing it since it’s gone free-to-play.

I like the idea of Legacy account that rewards those that stick around for a monthly discount. I also read and haven't try, but it says you can have 3 characters log in at the same time under a single account with extra subs? Is there a price on those extra subs and are they discounted?

I plan to stop playing the beta until beta 4, so I won't get burned out when it enter beta 4/launch.

Well, I'm not just playing it, I'm also submitting bug reports, so yeah. Sure, I'll have to re-do everything in Beta 4, but then I can just leisurely kick back and play--"open beta tests" are really just the modern MMO equivalent of a test drive these days.

Beta 4 data will carry over to launch, so I won't have to redo everything three times.

You will love that boss fight... I guarantee it!! I did the instance 10 times (would've done it a lot more if we had more time lol) before they close down the 3rd phase beta and it was worth every second.

I can't wait for the open beta this weekend!!

btw, have they announced if there will be a gametime card or codes available at launch?

Open beta isn't this weekend. Open beta is Beta 4. This is still Beta 3; this coming weekend the Duty Finder (instance matching) will be implemented. Then we have a week-long stress test starting the weekend after.

Beta 4 (Open Beta) will start shortly before release, probably in the middle half of August.

Ifrit battle is amazing. Too bad the client-server lag make avoiding his attack not as smooth it should.

A new benchmark was released today and has a character creator attached to it. You can save your character data to sync it to the beta later, I believe. (You can also make a character to actually be featured in the benchmark's cutscene.)

Head here to grab it!

alright i was on the fence about preording this game since most youtube vids do it no justice at all...well the ones i could find anyway, the ebgames site had a really crap promo video of the camera paning around a bit of each world(which looked crap) then i saw a jap video of the designers explaining the group finding book, and i saw actual gameplay and fell in love with it, wonder why ebgames showed the worst video to promote sales....

And i just saw one of the posts above and saw the houses you can buy.....im sold im preording on tuesday when i have the money lol.

Any idea when beta 4 will start that lets preorderers play early?

A bit large (2.5GB) but it was nice creating character data attributes ahead of time if that does work out ( I think I can just copy the files over ).

Interesting way to benchmark, got almost 11000 in a windowed mode, will try fullscreen later.

Phase 4 starts probably on the 9th or 10th--the live letter is on the 8th and will announce when open beta starts. P4 will last a week, and the servers will go down for a few days before early access starts. Considering information we already have, the early access lasts a week and thus will start on the 20th.

So with P4 we will lose all our gear and character data when early access starts?
