Havent seen a post for this myself so I'm going to start a thread on it.

So Thoes of us who purchased final fantasy 13, some of us got this card thing to let us sign up for beta and get a secret in game item!!!! Anybody have any thoughts on what it could be? no? well then, what would you like to see as thhe "secret in game item".

Im almost hoping its a retainer pass, free retainer to sell your items offline! or mabey chocobo pass, or chocobo chic. or moggle suit! OH THE POSSIBILITIES!!! What i would really hope for, if they use crystal for crafting on this one.. have a crystal creator! create crystals as you need them, limited use per day!

So whats your ideas?

I'm guessing it will be something that has very little impact on gameplay. Maybe a funny looking hat or something.

I have no idea what it is, but I will state again (I said this in another thread) that I am annoyed that it was only given in the first run of FFXIII. I know it was a good business ploy, because it gave people that are fans of FF series and plan on playing FFXIV a reason to shell out their money early if they hadn't planned on it. I am a loyal Square/Square Enix customer that has played every FF game released, DQ games, and countless other games they have released. But simply because I had to wait and buy the game a month later because of financial reasons I don't get the "secret item" and even worse a running for the PS3 beta.

So I definitely hope that the item is just something decorative and not anything that gives an edge on gameplay. That's just my own personal feelings.

End rant.

Your probably right on that. SE dosnt tend to give anybody free advantages.

Probably will be what Blizz does with WoW. A cosmetic pet or item that gives no stats or abilities.

I agree that it's unfortunate how they're distributing it out. If I were someone without a code, it would annoy me that I was already an item down in XIV, even if it's just an aesthetic one.

For some people, how their character looks is important.. And this game is likely to be the most impressive-looking MMO when it comes out, so the situation there is only amplified.

The item was bundled with FFXIII, so it's going to be a Hope action figure that whines and complains when you squeeze it.

Or maybe a Vanille squeaky toy you can give to your dog?

Or a Snow action figure that says "Heroes don't run from fights!" and "Don't worry, Serah. Your hero is on his way."

/facepalm

I'm going to say that SE will have an ingame bonus for preorders. It seems that everygame has those now. So even if you didn't get the ingame item for when you bought ffxiii. I bet they will have a different one for preoreders.

That sounds like a definite possibility. Since I got the code with the item already, I'll be selfish and hope that it's a different item. lol :P

Speaking of the promotional code. I may be being a little paranoid but did anyone receive a confirmation email or anything when they used it to sign up for the PS3 beta? I'm about 95% sure I signed up but can find no sign of doing so except my square account shows me having registered FFXIII.

As for the item, I hope it is either some sort of pet or an item that goes in a non-stat effecting slot i.e. shirts/tabards.

Hmmm or maybe even something for these "player owned house/area/something" they have been hinting at.

I've been wondering the same thing, as I received no confirmation.


I'd assume it's a fluff item. I'd be happy with a cool hat. :)

I don't think this is only for first production games only. I just bought FFXIII new a month ago from Fry's Electronics. It had the card in it and I got my beta/item code from the site.

I'm hoping the item at least has something to do with FFXIII. Maybe like a crystal tear necklace.

You open the magic box.

You received inventory -1!

It's either a slightly better starting weapon for whatever starting class you pick or something whose only stat is inventory -1. In the end, only people who have one will care.

Your character gets headgear that looks like Sazh's afro. It randomly produces baby chocobos.

All I know for sure is that I bought my copy during the middle of May and when I registered I got the message "Your copy of FINAL FANTASY XIII for PlayStation®3 is not eligible to receive a bonus code."

And at the top of the page for the secret code on Square Enix it says

Quote:
By registering a first-production-run copy of FINAL FANTASY XIII on SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS, you will receive a special bonus!

Copies of FINAL FANTASY XIII from its initial production run contain a unique product registration card. Registering your product with the serial code printed on this card will unlock a bonus code good for the redemption of your Registration Bonus.


So I assume that it is for first production games only, because it specifically says that on the official site. Maybe the store you bought yours from does not have a huge amount of customers so it still had some of the first production in stock.

it would be nice if it was a level 1 item with a minor stat bonus

unfortunately, have to agree it's most likely to be cosmetic

Maybe someone sold you a used copy. You have no idea the amount of rerapping and selling of used games (as new) that goes on.

I would hope not. That would be very disappointed. I got my copy from Gamestop.
