FFXIV PSN Registration Code Issues

11 replies 6345 views Edited Sep 2, 2013

I recently purchased the hard copy of Final Fantasy XIV and got a registration code in the format of :

 

XXXXXX-XXX-XXXXXX-XXX ( 6 Letters, 3 Numbers, 6 Letters, 3 Numbers )

 

the usual PSN format is:

 

XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX  ( All Alpha-Numeric )

So when I try registering the code it fails.

 

I logged into my Square-Enix Account and registered the code there and it worked!

 

Now my SE account and PSN account is Linked, however PSN is still asking me for my Registration Code, which will not work due to the incorrect format. 

 

I can't even get past the installation page!!

 

Any suggestions to at least progress past the installation page so I can try to log in?

I feel like I've wasted my money

 

 

thanks!

Have you tried entering the code through the XMB? Its the same place where you would enter say .. a prepaid PSN card number.
Sorry, I know thats a bit vague, but thats how it had to be done in White Knight Chronicles II.

I bought the game via PSN, so I didnt have code issues, though Ive read that MANY people have.

Therer should be a 12 digit code you need to enter in accounts management on the xmb. I found mine on the back of the booklet included in the game box. After entering it there it worked fine.

After it installs FFXIV on my PS3 asks me to enter in the Registration code to be able to access the game, which pulls up the XMB code entry screen. But since the code I got in the game case is SE format, it doesn't work on XMB

I already registered my copy and was playing just fine then when I tried to login this morning it tells me I have to re enter registration code which then says "invalid code". And btw implying that we are stupid just because we are having issues is just showing how very ignorant you truly are.

you get 2 codes..

 

that code is for registering the game with square enix which nets you points to use towards special items from square

 

the code you claim in the xmb will be found on the back of the english manual found in the case
