Final Fantasy XIV - PS3 or PS4?

26 replies 786 views Edited Jul 15, 2013

I had a very important question to ask. If I played Final Fantasy XIV on PS3 and then later decided to get a PS4, would I have to start all over again or will my character data be linked to my PSN account? I'm not exactly sure how that's going to work.

It will all transfer over. You can even use the same character and everything on the PC version.

Uh you were able to do the same thing with FFXI. I did in fact. I started FFXI on PC and later moved my character to PS2. Doesn't matter what platform you're on, you can use the same character across all platforms. The same thing with FFXIV. Just use the same account information and you can use your characters on PS3, PS4, or PC.

Thank you guys so much. The thing is, I can't afford a PS4 at the moment due to bills and having to attend Long Beach Comic-Con as an unofficial guest. Money's all tied up. I've been saving for a PS3 though and was barely able to pre-order Final Fantasy XIV. A friend has graciously agreed to let me borrow his console until I get my own. I have to say, I am very excited. I can't wait to play.

if you have a half-way decent PC, get it on PC.


they have a downloadable tech-demo/benchmark tool that you can configure to see exactly just how good (or bad) it performs on different settings and presets.

PC even on medium settings, there's no comparison to PS3

 

 In any case, I would wait to get it on PS4..... its going to look amazing.

I get you so horked up

I don't have a decent PC actually, it doesn't meet the minimum system requirements for FF XIV. Also, I would much rather play the game sooner than later so I'm going with PS3.

Are you going to need the PS+ to play FFXIV? I know you need it for multiplayer on ps4 but what about this?



Got my Vita for $50. Woot.
