FFXIV to have monthly subs model, says Tanaka

Final Fantasy XIV will have a monthly subscription model when it releases next year.

That’s according to producer for the MMO, Hiromichi Tanaka, who was speaking to VG247 at GamesCom.

“It’s going to be 30 days-based subscription,” said Tanaka.

The game is due in 2010 for PS3 and PC, but don’t quite rule out a 360 version yet. Tanaka-san revealed that talks with Microsoft are held up for the game because of the policy of Xbox Live.

If it does come, it wont be at launch as the PS3 will have it as a console exclusive during the “launch timing”, something SCEA president Jack Tretton forgot to mention during the announcement for the game at E3.

    I know what they are, I’m saying they’re too big now.

    I like the old logos better, they were subtle and connected with the game. FFVII had the meteor, VI had the Magitek vehicle, IV had a silhouetted image of Kain.

    The new one are enormous, they’re bigger than the title.

    The pricing was only briefly hinted at in past interviews. The developers want to run both FFXI and FFXIV in parallel. They wanted to keep the pricing structure reasonable for FFXI players to subscribe to both. Considering that FFXI will still have more content when FFXIV launches, it wouldn’t be unreasonable if the price remained the same or slightly less then the current cost of FFXI.

    I kind of like the title, didn’t really notice it being any larger then most text only logos.
