While details on the Playstation 3 release of Final Fantasy XIV were reportedly to be unveiled at next weeks Tokyo Game Show, it seems that according to a live chat recently held by Naoki Yoshida and Square Enix unveils otherwise. As quoted below:
Q: Can we see the PS3 version…?
We’ll be releasing the initial information around mid-October. I believe we’ll have screenshots first, but please hang in there! The actual video is pretty (while looking at the Windows version screen), but the quality is a bit messed up in the broadcast.
Sam’s Note: Hopefully it is not too long until those who submitted a beta application via the Final Fantasy XIII code will be able to check out the game!
In a following question, information was unveiled regarding the games upcoming housing system. As quoted below:
Q: I saw some new artwork… What is this (artwork for the upcoming housing system)?
With the new housing system, there are multiple themes such as “wilderness,” “sea,” and “forest.” Players will purchase the land and also the right to own a house. Once you build a house, players will be able to create their unique house by selecting from a list of parts. Also, players will be able to place furniture created by Disciples of the Hand and build a chocobo farm in their yard.
The housing system will have updates dedicated specifically to housing. I’m sure players will really enjoy the housing system. Additionally, objects within the house can be placed via drag & drop (including the PS3 version).
Lastly, there are plans to implement huge spaces of land that cost a fortune!
Most of the other questions seem more relevant to active players of the game, including questions pertaining to new areas, potential for second jobs for each classes, and changes to the game with the upcoming “A Realm Reborn”.
