FFXIV PS3 delayed, PC trial period gets extended, dev team restructured

Oh dear.

Square’s just announced a delay to Final Fantasy XIV on PS3 on the game’s official website. The MMO’s free period trial has also been extended by a further 90 days and the development team has also been restructured.

Square president Yoichi Wada has issued an apology on the website for the delay of the PS3 version, which was due in March next year, something Wada had previously promised was still on course for.

Development of the port was said to be done last month.

“Regarding the PlayStation 3, it is not our wish to release a simple conversion of the Windows version in its current state, but rather an update that includes all the improvements we have planned,” said Wada.

“For that reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of the PlayStation 3 version beyond the originally announced date of March 2011.”

The core development team has also been restructured, with Naoki Yoshida taking over as director and producer from Hiromichi Tanaka and Nobuaki Komoto respectively, the latter now being lead game designer.

Further restructuring has also been confirmed on the game’s website.

Furthermore, the 90 day free trial period for the PC version has been extended once again.

FFXIV hasn’t gotten off to the best start on PC since it launched in September. It’s been totally lambasted by critics and has been given a 51 on Meta.

Tanaka said previously gamers had a “high expectation” for the game and the firm was working hard to ensure it ends up being all it was expected to be.

At gamescom, Tanaka told VG247 the reason the PS3 version was delayed previously into March was because of memory issues.

    Oh, boy, what a nightmare…

    They should just have postponed the PC version in the first place. Even IF they manage to fix the game, it will still keep that bad first impression.

    It’s a pity to see so many resources, money, employees’ work and gamers’ expectations for such a result

    It’s an utter mess, truly.
    Reading that article, I’m not sure I, frankly, place any value in the words of corporate Yoichi Wada. As compared to the statement from the stepping down producer, and the man brought in to rescue this situation, those thoughts of Mr. Yoshida, and of Tanaka ring far more true.

    Personnel changes, sounds like it will bring just the start of things, and, I wouldn’t be surprised for the game not to be to their new approval standards, before mid-next year. Unless, they will do cosmetic appeasements, then continue working on underlying problems, in the calm they hope to generate.

    I cannot help but feel that we may be seeing the Japanese development bubble, begin to split, ready to burst, for those introvert companies that are too hesitant to consult and learn beyond their own culture, and believe that the world will wait for them, still.

    The game is by no means the “mess” some want it to be, but it definitely needs serious overhaul in terms of content. The first major update last month was very encouraging.
    Still sad about Tanaka though, he always seemed to passionate about his work.

    who cares about shitty MS products Windows and 360 are shit.

    Most of the developers always complain about sales on PC Ea didn’t want Deadspace 2 for PC because of bad sales

    and witcher developers will be taking strict action against people who will pirate Witcher2.

    Most PC gamers are teh pirates even blizzard had to dumb down features.SC2 is like MMO gamers are banned for using cheats in SP lol.

    “Atleast PS3 gamers shows supports developers by buying games.”

    by buying less games than Xbox 360 fanbase?

    Do you know how much money PC publishers make each year? At the same par with PS3. Just for example.
    Activision surpasses any platform with PC (because of WOW) for 1 billion dollars a year.

    “Ea didn’t want Deadspace 2 for PC because of bad sales”

    Link?
    Because Dead space 2 is announced for PC and will be released next year.

    nice to see how 2 trolls hate against each other…kids go and let the grown-ups talk.
    @Erdhaus
    Kiddo….1+1=2. When NPD shows a sale of 36k units, it is obvious, why they dont release DS2 on PC or like the trend now is: they always release it later. Because there a enough ppl like you or me who have a gaming PC and a console.When you can pirate it on PC, and it doesnt matter if you have a ps3, you will pirate it. Thats why they release AC2 later (okay..because of the protection) or thats why they release DARKSIDERS on PC later. And games where you need a premanent checked game files (like MMOs) cant be pirated. You can download the iso or what else for the game, but still need a valid key to play on the mmo-servers.

    @back_up_ya_mind
    dude…may there are a lot of PC gamers pirate..but on the xbox360 and ps3 is the same thing going. give the assh*le ppl the possibility to be a pirate and there will be one. I bought MW + MW2 beside the possibility to play on private server. And the last game i pre-ordered was The Witcher 2 on PC. And it has no online or what ever features.

    Though this is off-topic just felt like sharing this bit with regards to piracy. PC software and game piracy is starting to work similar to the film industry in the sense that when you pirate lesser known indie devs then you’re doing a disservice as they feel the brunt of you not purchasing their game (unless it was microbudget and 60k sales puts them in good standing).
    With a major publisher, because of exclusive servers, patches, dlc and features most people do buy these games. Not justifying piracy but platform irrelevant certain games are not really affected by piracy particularly the million-plus sellers. Not to say that it doesn’t affect them at all, but these titles are more immune than others.

    It’s down due to the nature of the industry and consumer tendencies. Not to mention a lot of indie games are short single player experiences so most pirates do not feel the tendency to buy it after they’re done unless they’re a collector. But perhaps when they’re mature they might buy the titles that they pirated in their youth?

    The reason PC gets the short end of the piracy stick despite actually being profitable for the big publishers is because it’s always been easy and unless it becomes a closed platform (which is stupid btw) this is not going to go away even if games are reduced in price.

    “http://www.gamespot.com/news/6230743.html?tag=latestheadlines;title;1″

    NPD numbers ONLY and not Steam and D2D. Again, failure. Where is a PRESS RELEASE link from EA where they said about DISSAPOINTED PC sales of Dead Space 2?

    Press Release. 360000 is not dissapointment if EA making Dead Space 2 or they are wrong? Ask them than.

    @KrazyKraut, “it is obvious, why they dont release DS2 on PC or like the trend now is: they always release it later.”

    Shut up child because PC version will be released at the same time as the console version.

    + NPD numbers are not STEAM, D2D and World Wide sales.

    Where is Press Release from EA saying it is dissapointment? Until EA press release you can say what you want. Thank you.

    Darksiders? Is a shitty game.
    Games like Starcraft II is the best selling RTS game on the PC for example.

    Stop saying nonsence if you don’t know about PC market. There are plenty money in the PC market. Everything else depends on the developers and publishers.

    PC games don’t sell well as consoles versions. That’s why most devs don’t make PC versions of their games. Only blind PC fans disagree.

    @18, Doesn’t Steam display their sales info? if so you could use that as leverage in your imaginary anti-console war, not sure about D2D, never used it, even iffy about using Steam, no idea why but it sometimes takes 5+ mins to load up, but luckily the games are locked to the profile but i think they have a D/L limit.
    But just face facts Erthazus, multiplat games, especially new ip or new to pc, Just don’t normally sell too well on PC, defend that all you want, you’re just showing how childish you are.

    Nope.

    “But just face facts Erthazus, multiplat games, especially new ip or new to pc, Just don’t normally sell too well on PC”

    Ok fanboy. You are done already?

    Stalker sold for 4 million units because it was a title specifically for PC
    Witcher 1 sales you should know how much they sold
    Minecraft – 700000 copies sold
    Mount And Blade over 2 million.

    and i can go on and on with ARMA’s and etc.

    I’m sorry. Keep up posting nonsence Playstation fanboy. Keep up a good work.
    You know about gaming industry like you know about 3D monitors.

    “as leverage in your imaginary anti-console war”

    you should first of all ask yourself about your imaginary console war. I have no anti-console attitude or whatever. If something is shit it’s shit Pc is not exception.

    If you want to talk about PC being unviable, you definitely shouldn’t bring up Starcraft 2. It sold more in a month than Bad Company 2 sold in almost a year across three different platforms.

    If you want the data on PC sales you go to the publishers and look at their quarterly and yearly statements, those are the undeniable facts. Interestingly enough it shows that while those publishers focus a lot on the console market, the PC market has the capacity to sell as much as either console on its own. I forget which publisher it was that I looked at, but they actually had a perfect 3-1 ratio between the 360, PS3, Wii and PC.

    Generally speaking though, whether down to prioritization or marketshare, the consoles outsell the PC by between 6- to 10-1.

    @21, You just skipped over half my comment, do i have to quote myself?
    “multiplat games, especially new ip or new to pc, Just don’t normally sell too well on PC” So you defend your precious PC with 5 PC exclusive games, did i EVER mention pc exclusive?-NO, keyword here: MULTIPLAT, I am fully aware that games made specifically for PC tend to be quite succesful & quite frankly the only type of game i would buy, & how on earth am I a PlayStaion fanboy? It’s true that i prefr using my ps3 for gaming over pc & 360, but i haven’t made a pledge to vocally support it against all opposition *cough* itsucks & kuwabarra *cough*, i still own a 360, i play Gears & Halo from time to time, already got 1000/1000 gamerscore on reach b4 the added the crappy noble map pack & i quite often return to my pc & play Dawn of War which i absolutely love & would never play on any console.

    “Except if it’s ArmA, apparently.”

    Buy a rig and play it, than judge it. It’s amazing and the latest patches made it more awesome with the latest DLC pack.

    With this community: http://www.armaholic.com/
    game is such a gold thing.

    @Crysis,

    “PC with 5 PC exclusive games, did i EVER mention pc exclusive?-NO, keyword here: MULTIPLAT”

    In the previous statement you never said Key word. you have there multiplat or IP.
    As i said. Good games on PC sell well if they are made specifically for PC with PC stuff.
    Good Ports will never sell well even if they have dedicated servers or something PC specific. No matter how you jump (well, maybe with marketing you can sell)

    “how on earth am I a PlayStaion fanboy”

    Next time i will just copy everything you say in the threads and will post to you your own statements. You will be really surprised.

    @24, I agree, i do like games made specifically for PC, but won’t touch any console port because i may awell just play the console version, but back to my point i said multiplat games, especially new ip or new to pc, Just don’t normally sell too well on PC & you reply with nonsense that games made with only the pc in mind sell well which is obvious.

    I’ve vocally stated that i prefer my PS3 several times, but that doesn’t make me a fanboy, i just prefer console experiance over pc & prefer non subscription multiplayer over subscription multiplayer, single reason i’ve never played an MMO other than the free 2 play MAG.

    If you want me to prove I’m not a fanboy i could just link you to my 2 XBL profiles that have both 360 & some GfWL games on them.

    This is such bs. There are people who wanted this game to fail before it even came out. So now PS3 players have to wait until PC gamers are pleased with the game. That\\\’s not possible, you can never please everybody especially the MMORPG community that\\\’s bitches about ANYTHING. I was really anticipating this game but now I ready to say FK this game AND Square Enix.
