One of the biggest queries surrounding Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn was while the decision to release the online game on the Playstation 3 was not a new one, it was a decision they have only just decided to end at the end of the consoles generation. While it was not a big mention during the Sony E3 press conference yesterday, Square Enix confirmed that they would be porting over the game to the Playstation 4 in 2014.
For gamers who do go out and purchase the Playstation 3 copy, you will be glad to know that Square Enix is currently in talks with Sony Computer Entertainment to ensure a smooth transition of their game accounts to the Playstation 4 edition upon release. I assume specifics will be coming soon.
