think SE will announce a date this monthFollow

you think SE will announced a release date or at least official price for PS3 and pc versions this month? so far amazon is the only retailer listing it for 39.99 on ps3... i wanted to preorder it at gamestop.. but they dont have the game listed because the lack of a date and confirmed price (like thats ever stopped them from making up a release date) they only have the vanilla PS3 version (which never came out) listed at 59.99.. according to them that counts as a realm reborn since the other one never came out on ps3.


so in that case amazon is listing it for 39.99 while gamestop is 60? the issue is:

if i preorder at amazon for 39.99 theyll honor that price even if the official price is 59.99.. however ill have to wait for them to ship the games hich means i might be starting a week late..

whereas with gamestop Id be getting it on day 1 if i preordered it but Im not gonna give them 65 bucks lol. especially when they have the wrong version listed

Anyone think we'll get some official announcement this month?

No, it's too soon in the testing process for a release date.

If you look at the proposed roadmap, the testing period has about an eight week margin of error, no doubt depending on what happens during testing.

Declaring a release date now, when it could be as much as two months off, wouldn't be a good idea.

Yeah, Yoshi-P said that they do not intent to release the game until the community is happy with the Beta. If by open Beta, the players still complaning about the quality of the game; I don't think they will release the game. You will not see an official date until after Open Beta, price maybe.

I'd expect that by the time open beta rolls around, they've got a fairly good idea of what needs to be done and can estimate the time it'll take to do that.

I would expect a release date announcement right around the start of open beta, if not slightly before that.

if thats true then with all the complaining i see around here (too flash, just doing teh same move over and over, battles take no skill, etc etc) then the game will be in beta til 2014.. but yeah im mainly looking for a price than a date

SE rushed the release date for XIV the first time around, what makes you think they'd make the same mistake again?

I'd say you can expect the game to be $60 for ps3 and around the same price for pc version. There possibly will be a CE edition, but I'm not going to count my chickens until they say it themselves. Release date wise, Yoshi said that if everything goes smoothly during beta, the official release will be around 2 weeks after the end of the open beta.

This forum has always been very open with how people thought of the game. Honestly, there isn't much complaining going on anymore compared to what there was. People are just talking about things they see in videos of a game many here haven't played yet. It's one thing to complain about something that you've played, but it's something completely different to complain about something you haven't played. It all comes down to how people feel about the game during the up coming beta test. Once phase 4 hits, this forum will explode with what members think is good and what members think is bad.

While I dislike your bad attitude in general, you are probably right in regards to the reception of the Ps3 version of the game at that price point. If they are planning 39.99 for the PC version, I'd expect the Ps3 version to be the same if for no other reason than they really should do all they can to welcome new players into the game. Selling one version for twenty bucks more right off the bat when the game has already failed hard once in the eyes of the consumer - probably not a great idea.

Of three major retailers, the pre-order prices are already set as:

PC version - $29.99
PS3 version - $39.99

Just to put it out there, the only reason I said $60 is because that's the starting price point for new releases on the ps3. It may very well be less since it was originally released 2 years ago. I honestly have no idea of where it actually will fall. Hopefully, it'll be low enough to entice people on the fence to buy it just to see since it's ONLY xx.xx dollars.

While true the vast majority of the time, I believe Little Big Planet was one who bucked the trend and launched at $40.

I order from amazon all the time (free shipping ftw with prime) They are really really good at getting the product to you on the day of its release. Once I got something a day early... shhhhhh

If you order from amazon, right now, at the price tag of $39.99 you will get that price of $39.99 even if the price jumps to $59.99 and even $99.99

If anything, I would 100% order from Amazon.com and if you need to, just cancel the order. They don't charge until its shipped anyway.

I know that Im just worried about when Id get the game.. if i recall only items that specifically say it have "release date arrival shipping" i,.e that doesnt apply to ALL pre orders and even if it does im sure that offer is only for Prime members

The price is generally higher on consoles because of companies have to pay royalties as well. On PC there's no such thing.

The price is higher on consoles because that's what people expect console games to cost.

No, seriously.. this is a thing.

Yeah, that's just not going to happen. Square-Enix hasn't worked 2+ years (for almost free) to trash the thing the minute things turn sour. Unless the cost of going live is somehow higher than what they foresee making (if things go poorly), there's just no way it wont be released.

If by 'for almost free' you mean hemorrhaging money. SE has stated that they're committed to trying to bring XIV back to life. While there isn't any doubt that it'll see release, there is no guarantee that the plug isn't pulled soon after that if it doesn't start to look promising real quick. I don't think SE would risk their company over a struggling game in an unsettled genre unless they think it can reverse the flow.

SE released it's financials yesterday, profits took a big hit, and they're hanging a lot on MMO's carrying them through. I don't think failure is an option for them.

I love SE. Actually, I loved Squaresoft and came to accept SE, but it's amazing how they can't seem to do anything in a timely manner anymore. We all know about XIV. By the time FF Versus XIII comes out the ps3 will be in bargain bins. Even this XIII trilogy is taking forever. What we need is to slow down "ERMAHGERD FF EVERYTHING OVERLOAD" and get a Chrono revamp ASAP. That'll get things going.

At this point if XIV fails, it's going to drag XI down with it.

That'd be a shame. SE would have to liquidate and they might be able to sell XI off to a white knight in bankruptcy proceedings, but the only company I think that might even want it is Blizzard.

To be fair, they still made $42 million last year, but it was down over 60% I think. There is a lot riding on this game.
