New interview by JeuxOnLine has some information that I'm sure people will find interesting, especially about the ps3 version.

http://www.jeuxonline.info/actualite/27600/jeuxonline-rencontre-hiromichi-tanaka

Translated by google

http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jeuxonline.info%2Factualite%2F27600%2Fjeuxonline-rencontre-hiromichi-tanaka&sl=fr&tl=en

Ill copy and paste it in its entirety here.


JeuxOnLine: Can you tell us more about "Linkshells? Do you plan something new compared to those of Final Fantasy XI ? Maybe something as distinctive tabards or emblems?

Tanaka: As Linkshells, you will have the opportunity to play for "Company," which lets you communicate more easily. You'll have more details about "companies" very soon.

(At this moment, our reporters have begun to despair of a question, misunderstanding and / or a very partial response, it was a bad sign.)

JeuxOnline : How will the system of "Servant"? Is it will be fully customizable by the player? Has it been established to address the lack of hotel sales?

Tanaka : They are there to keep your belongings, but you can also turn them into "market" where you will be offline. The "Servants" will also be linked to the system of "Company," is something you can experience yourself very soon.

JeuxOnline : The world of video games has been much debate about the output that is very close, but JeuxOnLine was particularly surprised by this announcement: the return of the alpha test have they helped so much as to have a beta too short?

Saori : You mean an imminent beta or beta short?

JeuxOnLine: Short.

Tanaka : The alpha test was very useful, it helped us to test the stability of the servers and we were able to adapt in the meantime. But in fact, we will have several phases of beta testing. In the first phase, we have a version that will incorporate feedback from our alpha testers who will, hopefully available this week. At first, it will resemble the alpha test phase, in the sense that each test session lasted four hours.

But if things go well, the beta 2 will follow shortly, which will allow players to access the game 24 hours 24. Then, hopefully, by early August, we will open the beta test phase 3 which will remain operational until the game launches

JeuxOnLine: It will be open?

Tanaka: No, closed.

JeuxOnLine: There will be no open beta?

Tanaka: After Phase 3 of the beta, we have an open beta will be available just before the release of the game, but we can not guarantee this last phase opened.

JeuxOnLine: At the E3 , we could see faction points as rewards in Money Guild. Can you tell us more about that?

Saori : "faction points? In terms of guild?

Tanaka: There are no points for action in terms of Guild ...

Saori: You mean the combat system, action points?

JeuxOnLine: No, no faction points given as a reward to the accomplishment of a mandate Guild.

Tanaka: Yes, currently in beta, this feature is not yet integrated. But depending on how you carry out the mandate of Guild, the answers you get from the NPC will be different. So you can sometimes discover mandates Guild that you could not otherwise see ... * hesitates * Saori Uh ... that's it huh [NdR: she said in French]? You will get a varying number of points depending on how you accomplished your mandate.

JeuxOnLine: So ... About the PS3 out, do not you think that players who are scheduled to play Final Fantasy XIV on PS3 are extremely disappointed since the announcement of a staggered release?

Tanaka: * laughs * Yes, it's a shame. We understand the wrath of players and developers are sorry because they did everything they could to have a simultaneous release date, but unfortunately they have encountered many technical problems on the development of the game PS3. We strive to release the game as soon as possible.

JeuxOnLine: The announced date of March 2011 would therefore not final?

Tanaka: If possible, we would publish the game sooner, we would like to start as soon as possible the beta on PS3.

JeuxOnLine: This is good news!


JeuxOnLine: At the E3 , we saw a version 3D the game .. Do you think that you will use 3D technology one day?

Tanaka: If you have equipment such as those offered by nVidia, you can admire and play Final Fantasy XIV in 3D. Of course, we received quite a helping hand from NVIDIA, and we try to make a 3D version very clean, but other technologies that use 3D is also being considered, we have already started explore other possibilities.

JeuxOnLine: Okay, so for now there are only nVidia?

Tanaka: We did not specifically designed for nVidia hardware, but we can assure you that if you own a nVidia appropriate, you can enjoy the game in 3D, or any other game until there is a game based on polygons, such as FF 11 , you can see in 3D if you have the proper equipment.

JeuxOnLine: The minimum prerequisite that appears on pre-orders are very different from those required for alpha testing, but they are insufficient to achieve a correct score at Benchmark. How can you explain such a drop of prerequisites?

Tanaka: Because it is a MMORPG , we have maximized the quality of the game so that players benefit long term. Over time, I'm sure you can have a high score but Benchmark is perhaps not yet, at present, of equipment to obtain the maximum scores in Benchmark, it has been somehow it on purpose. But because technology evolves rapidly, you're in the very near future able to reach a high score with an average computer.

JeuxOnLine: Many questions were asked about the differences between the two versions (standard and collector), especially about their bonus item. Can you tell us clearly the differences between the two versions? For example, do the glasses Garlond have limited use?

Tanaka: * * long speech

Saori: * laughs * Do you remember the name of the object?

JeuxOnLine: You mean, the bonus item?

Saori: Yes, the bonus item.

JeuxOnLine: The glasses Garlond.

Tanaka: Oh! There are indeed two different versions of objects that offer very useful for the beginning of the game, but it is more aesthetic objects than anything else. We did not want to create too large disparities between those who had a particular purpose and those who did not. We have therefore imposed certain limits on their usefulness, making sure you do not make them indispensable. Take the example of Onion Helmet, for those who ordered the collector version. This is a hat which can reduce the penalty on the dead because players tend to die easily at the beginning of the game regarding the glasses, they allow players to more easily catch those who have started one week in advance: it is faster for them to develop their talents.

JeuxOnLine: The glasses have really only made to catch up then.

Saori: Yes, yes.

JeuxOnLine: A more general question about SQUARE-ENIX ... Recently, SQUARE ENIX, began to pay more attention to European customers * nods * Tanaka, first by launching the alpha Final Fantasy XIV in German in Cologne in August 2010 world exclusive, but we also making fun of the presence of Mr Tanaka in Paris today. However, when it comes to news and information in general, the European press is often neglected and must retrieve the information directly from Japanese magazines such as Famitsu and Dengeki. Is it that things will change in the output of the fourteenth album? SQUARE ENIX, will pay much attention to Europe and the United States or Japan?

Tanaka: We try to give information to the press at the same time, we do not believe that the Japanese press to be more advantaged than others ...

JeuxOnLine: However, the non-disclosure agreement is still valid, and in this respect, they are mainly Japanese magazines that have the right to publish screenshots of the game and neither the European press or the American press have that chance, so we ask the question.

Tanaka: * * long speech ... Can you translate (write to Saori)? * Laughs *

Saori: Now that the beta is considered more open, we'd love to call you or the American press to publish content about the game and what happens in Japan does not come from our sources, they are rather Where they choose to publish their own particular article, it's not as if we gave them exclusive information that they publish their articles.

JeuxOnLine: So in fact, Famitsu and Dengeki are not really allowed to post the screenshots?

* Discussion Saori Tanaka and two editors of Famitsu and Dengeki about the "permission" *

Saori: In fact, the rules are handled differently by region, their screenshots have been approved and there is a special process for the Japanese media. (NdR: our records, this part is not very clear, so please do not jump to conclusions: we made it clear that the Japanese media were receiving special treatment, but there is nothing to prohibited the establishment of such relations with the Western media)

JeuxOnLine: Just one last question! Do you have something to say to the French community?

Tanaka: This time we were at the Japan Expo and we were really surprised by the French public, we would like to submit more to France and we hope you enjoy this content.

JeuxOnLine: I think we appreciate.

Saori: Thank you very much for coming.

Tanaka: Thank you very much.

JeuxOnLine: Thank you very much.



(Thanks to BG for originally posting this). I bolded the part of this interview that I care about the most. I am totally fine with waiting until March to play and all I really wanted was a direct explanation instead of speculation. It also is nice to see them reconfirm that there will be a ps3 beta.

If this is true they encountered "technical problems" (translation: we stripped the PS3 development to make sure the PC version was ready so we could grab some WOW players) then this wasn't something that "just popped up" its something they have known about for quite some time.

Tanaka laughs


How did I know that getting the "explanation" you've been crying for for the last several days wasn't going to be enough to get you to shut up? You said you wanted an explanation. You got one. Now it's the cynicism and crybaby ********* Again.

Dude stop acting so but-hurt.
At least the game is coming out and not cancelled
also I would rather them push it back than get something with less
features. They said it would be coming out 2010. Technically they
still are because its still the 2010 financial year. Would you
rather them push back the pc version just because of your wining.


Back on topic

I am actually kind of interested at how the retainers would be incorporated
into the companies. Would that mean they have more function than a mule
that sells them.

At this point, SE could announce that PS3 FFXIV would be released on September 22nd, and runway would STILL ***** that it should be released on the 21st for PS3.

So the guy briefly chuckles before saying "It's a shame" (which is the same thing you've been spouting off). What the **** do you want? Do you want him to be all super srs and say that he is pledging to quit SE over it?

Besides, I thought you weren't going to play XIV.

You're still posting here though. *laughs* It's a shame.

What is he supposed to do? cry about it? He gave you an explanation (which is what you been asking for) now stop whining. You are the reason why other ps3 people that have legitimate complaints are labeled as crybabies and whiners. Instead of taking this as a good sign (at least he said the game could be released sooner and they want a ps3 beta) you instead quote the part of him laughing, which has nothing to do with the answer at all.

Back on topic, beta will still be in 3 phases, so I take it phase 1 will move rather quick in order to start the 24 hours a day phase.

One would expect a more... serious answer instead of just laughing about the PS3 issue. Not that it bothers me, really.
Just seems unprofessional (but then again, who am I to judge?)

Wow, that interviewer was really on the ball.

Well, the confirmation of the triviality of the goggles and helmet alleviates some of my microtransaction fears. And it was right proper of them to offer an explaination for the PS3 delay.

But, ohhh. No open beta, huh?
Sounds like Open Beta is getting rolled into release. That's...never good.

I was wrong.

It didn't make me less mad somehow Tanaka LAUGHS and say "it's a shame" has seemed to have made me even more ****** off.

PS3 users gets a few sentences for an "explanation"? is that it Tanaka? A laugh and "it's a shame" for console users who have been SE's biggest user base since the first FF was programmed, console users who are the reason FFXI has lasted as long as it has, we get a laugh and a "it's a shame"?

Will you not be satisfied until they specify which particular lines of code are screwed up?

Try casting aside the lens of being unreasonably ****** about it, and think of how many times you've seen an interview where the interviewed person cracks a grin and gives a reluctant laugh like "you just HAD to ask."

I'm quite certain he's not laughing to disrespect.

Ok well first, keep in mind that this was translated from Japanese to French to English. I don't speak Japanese, but dommage, the french translation for a shame, can have a deeper connotation than just, "oh, well that's a shame". Of course they could have used tragique, but it's hardly a tragedy. I'm sure Tanaka wasn't just saying tant pis (tough luck).

Aur is right. You got your explanation, twice translated as it is. Get the **** on with your life already and stop trolling everyone here.

Yeah? he also says:

"We understand the wrath of players and developers are sorry because they did everything they could to have a simultaneous release date, but unfortunately they have encountered many technical problems on the development of the game PS3. We strive to release the game as soon as possible.

If possible, we would publish the game sooner, we would like to start as soon as possible the beta on PS3."


...but nothing is ever good enough for you, is it? All you read is what you want to read, you interpret it how you want to interpret it, and you completely ignore the entire rest of the answer where they APOLOGIZE, they GIVE A REASON, and they say not once but TWICE that they are DOING THEIR BEST TO RELEASE IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

For the last several days, AFTER insisting you weren't going to play the game at all, you have ******* nonstop in every thread you can get your grubby cheetos-covered fingers into about how you demand an explanation for this affront.

Now, you GET not only an EXPLANATION, but an APOLOGY, and an assertation twice that they're trying to release it soon and that STILL isn't good enough?

FOAD. Seriously, dude.

Runway, your right. So right in fact you should just boycott SE right now. Don't buy FFXIV. In fact never buy another SE product again. Find something else in life to care about and just walk away.

Sorry but "Technical Problems" and "It's a shame" is not good enough.


Just what is it that you want? As another poster mentioned, you want a breakdown of each and every technical issue they're experiencing with the PS3 version? What is it going to take to make you happy?

I already know the answer to that question, btw, but I'm curious to hear your take on it. A bit. Actually, I really just wish you'd stop posting until you can behave like a grown up about it.

Do NOT make me pull this forum over!

PS3 players get nothing. PS3 players will be to XIV what SMN was to XI, and for the exact same reason: you ***** too much. The PS3 beta will actually be conducted on XBox or PC (your choice), there will be no gamepad support for the PS3 version, and 2 years after PS3 release, oblivious PS3 users will still be wondering why they haven't gained any levels, why their paddle still looks the same, and why the ball mobs are still using the exact same skins. And the people who don't snivel and ***** and whine like six year olds who just had their iceceam taken away from them for ******** on the kitchen table will be all like, "teehee...PS3 limitations".

The real drag of a bad release is not being able to get in, not being able to stay in, or lagging like crazy.
So it's more like trial of trying to light a campfire with two sticks and tinder. :p

I'm starting to get a pretty "Ehhhhhhh" feeling about this game.

You're right this is not good enough for me. If what he says is true then they knew for months the PS3 version wasn't going to be ready and they said nothing. We are almost a week after they announced the PC release date and their "statement" was a few sentences in a interview where he says they are sorry and it's a shame.

Oh and he says "Doing their best to release it as soon as possible" let me translate that for you. It means :We screwed you, we know you're ****** so we tell you we are "trying" our best so all the good little fanboys will *sigh* and tell themselves see SE really does care and you will continue to buy our products.


No, you don't get to play this ******** game. You said several days ago that ALL YOU WANTED was an explanation. You got one. Now shut up. Stop posting. Go away. You said you quit, SE would never get another dime of your money, you were done. So sack up and walk the walk, because lord knows most people here are sick if you talking the talk. If you aren't here to discuss FFXIV, you don't belong here. And ******** and trolling and carrying on about SE doesn't qualify as discussing FFXIV, so be a sport and leave.

Thanks.
#23runway, Posted: Jul 05 2010 at 10:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Please cant I stay? I promise I'll talk about about how SE didn't ***** over PS3 users and how wonderful Tanaka is cause he gave a short answer a week after ******** over PS3 users.

Like I said:

Quote:

I genuinely do feel bad for PS3 players. Most of them. Not you. I felt bad for you at first, but you have long since made it impossible for ANYONE to feel bad for you. If I had a dollar for every person who has told you to stop your childish ******** over the past few days, I'd have enough to buy you a PC that could run the game. And then I'd shove that PC up your ***.

I say this again:

NOTHING IS EVER GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU. WE GET IT. YOU HAVE MADE THIS ABUNDANTLY CLEAR. FOAD.

It's not often that someone is this retarded that they incite me to tell them what a worthless waste of air they are, and to ponder how much better the world would be were they to drink all the yummy things under the sink.

I need to stop myself here, because one of two things is true...

Either you're just a troll, in which case I have to bow to you because you're quite good at it, and I have to shake your hand on the amount you've managed to **** everyone off...

...or you're just a selfish, spoiled, whiny little brat. In which case, My suggestion to FOAD still applies.

Guy: it's a video game that you have to wait a few more months to enjoy.

Here's hoping somebody necro's this thread in a year when you've reached cap and you're constantly making whiny posts about how bored you are and that SE released too soon without enough end-game content.

I'm as excited as anyone else to play, but I promise you they're not out to get you. They want your $78 for those 6 months as much as they want mine.

If you aren't here to discuss FFXIV, you don't belong here. And ******** and trolling and carrying on about SE doesn't qualify as discussing FFXIV, so be a sport and leave.


Please cant I stay? I promise I'll talk about about how SE didn't ***** over PS3 users and how wonderful Tanaka is cause he gave a short answer a week after ******** over PS3 users.

I promise "I'm trying my best"

Now that I said that can I stay cause apparently all it takes is for someone to say "They are trying" to make you all gush with love.


Alright man, vent, rant, do whatever you think you need to do. nobody here seems to really care about what you have to say anymore. You might as well be preaching to the senior's quilting club down the street. You're not convincing anyone of anything, you're not saving anyone from anything, you're just being a child. Hold your head up high tomorrow. The pride must be nigh overwhelming.

You and all the rest of the SE fanboys who for almost a week have roamed these boards spouting everything from "They never claimed simultaneous release", This is not a PS3 game it's a PC game" ,"They didn't know until E3" and all the rest of the little scenarios you have been trying to convince yourselves and others of.

Oh and btw re-read that part about the PS3 question. Right after Tanaka laughs he gives the most ******** answer, an answer that the SE fanboys will jump all over and will pass along in these forums and others every chance they get right up until March.

The part I'm talking about: "If possible, we would publish the game sooner, we would like to start as soon as possible the beta on PS3."

Fanboys are already trying to convince themselves that this means FFXIV will be on their PS3's before Thanksgiving. Not gonna happen but Tanaka thinks it's a shame so PS3 users should feel better now.

And I'm sorry that "It's a shame" and "Were trying our best" is good enough for you.

Wow really? Do you have to sh*t on an entire PS3 population because of a few bad posters and you want to play on PC? Yea, it sucks that PS3 is delayed but it could have been as easily a Sep PS3 release with PC waiting 6 months like FFXI release, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FFXI. Also those lolPS3limits are PC limits too.

As for me I'll be getting PC in hopes that it runs on my laptop and PS3 because I've moved away from desktop gaming.

If you are gonna ***** this much go play wow or some other game because if you
are this ****** about a game that was pushed back 3 months( yes 3 months before this most
people thought the game would come out in december before all of this)we wouldnt want
to play with you any way. Go play dc universe its a ps3 mmo that coming out this year.

Actually dont that seems like a good game and we dont want to subject it to you.
how about this if you are so made go make your own f-ing mmorpg, Thats the ideal solution
because you would be the only one playing it.

You are making it sound like it was pushed back because they are out to get the ps3
owners. sh*t happens. If it was for some other reason that would be different but its
not because they wouldnt release the pc version also.

Simply defending SE doesn't make someone a fanboy. It seems that you are just unwilling/incapable of accepting a pushback for an MMORPG. Let's just look at this a different way.

Hypothesis #1
If everyone that has not openly and obnoxiously /ragequit is a SE fanyboy, then you are the only non-fanboy on this forum.

Hypothesis #2
If everyone is accepting an explanation given by SE and acting normal, then you are just incredibly whiny and can't handle something as commonplace as a release date pushback.

The numbers don't agree with you. This forum isn't loaded with SE fanboys and you are incapable of handling any sort of turbulence.

My 'faith in humanity vs. time spent reading posts by runway' graph is looking pretty bleak at this point.

Clearly, all game developers exist for no reason other than to do whatever they are told buy the consumers. Anyone who disagrees is a fanboy.

Do you really expect SE (A corporation) to care about you as an individual? I don't know about the other people on these forums, but I could care less what SE feels for me, let alone expect them to care. Tanaka could literally knock on my door:

Tanaka: ********** you"

Seriously kid, get over it. It's a dark, cruel world out there and no one cares. By whining you're only putting salt on the wound.

You know what I am going to say it. I own a Playstation 3 but @#%^ Playstation 3 having Final Fantasy XIV. Tanaka in the article even stated that with Final Fantasy XIV having such strict requirements for the PC version that they are aiming for a future where we will not be held down many restrictions whatsoever as a player and them as a developer. We will get to experience many more things that they can throw at us than possible with FFXI.

It's a fact that Playstation 2 severely held back Final Fantasy XI but it could not be helped. I do not want this game watered down whatsoever. Playstation 3 needs to take a backseat to this entire game. I refuse to let Square Enix turn this next MMO game to sh*t because PS3 is too technical to program for. Besides you should be blaming Sony and not Square Enix. You are barking up the wrong tree.

And I have owned every Playstation from its conception so don't you dare say that I don't love my Sony or Playstation 3. But Final Fantasy XIV has the potential to be the best MMO and I want Square Enix go wild on this MMO with nothing stopping their vast imagination. I do hope that there is a Playstation 3 version but they need to focus on a system that is upgradeable, a system that has unlimited potential. Final Fantasy XI could very well be the greatest MMO for quite a few years. Regardless, I have purchased FF13 for the item, I have bought a copy of the CE and original version for their items.

I have made a personal promise to support everything that is released by Square Enix for this game. Whether that be some 12 foot tall plush Chocobo or a stupid little key chain that costs $50.00. But I guess I am just a die hard fan. Always will be.

Sounds like Open Beta is getting rolled into release. That's...never good.


Well, open betas are basically just previews anyway - most open long after the developer can do anything about bugs and content before the game goes live.

Kinda' Sorta'.

A great deal of Open Betas are clever marketing stunts, that much is true. Your feedback is either first update fodder or they're out-and-out humoring you with no intention of giving anything but a bug report a second glance. But that isn't to say it doesn't have any functional purpose. It does stress-test the servers under the "not ready yet" banner. Which, for all the grousing people do, they do seem to agree that pre-launch server trouble 'doesn't count yet'.

A bad launch is the surest way to sabotage the success of even the most promising MMO.

However, most of my issues with it are in how conflicting their testing process has been with their original spin on it, and the implications; in terms of how genuine their interest in integrating player input is, how genuine they are in their pursuit of courting non-fans, and how much executive meddling is going on behind the scenes.

You have to take into consideration that they have been developing this game since/before August of 2005 on the PC. I am quite sure they have had enough time in those 5 years to add in everything they wanted and also tailor it to the way they needed. This Alpha/Beta testing is basically just testing what the general populace thinks about the game and allows them to make minor/major tweaks here and there. The game is pretty much ready to go. I figured in the beginning it would be a short testing schedule. Not because it is being rushed but the game has been in development for 5 long years already. After all there is a line that a developer should never cross. If you have a general idea of how you want the combat system to feel/run for example, of course you take the general opinion from the alpha/beta tests but the change that you incorporate due to opinion should never cross the line to where it is not keeping to the original idea that you came up with.

I guess I am just saying that Square Enix has been very good at listening to players in the Alpha/Beta. Both the players and the developers should be respected and always have open communication. Final Fantasy XIV is a step in the right direction of the development team being more transparent to its players. All the interviews, media releases, the videos, the music etc that has been released has really built up a buzz for this game. Both the players and developers should be happy about how things have turned out up to this point. I am very content with everything that has transpired from the community and the developers. I hope to see it continue into the many years of entertainment that Final Fantasy XIV has the potential of providing us.

Besides, Final Fantasy XIV will have both Akihiko Yoshida (FF12, FFT, Tactics Ogre, Vagrant Story) as the art director and of course the infamous Nobuo Uematsu for the music. This MMO is already legendary.

He probably laughs because he is amazed how worked up mankind can get over a delayed video game release. SE has probably gotten a ton of complaints by people who apparently have nothing better going on in their lives than this game being released. Does life suck so much that there must be endless rage over this?

The way I see it, assuming I do not bother with upgrading my computer and I probably won't as I like the idea of FFXI running on my PC and to my left FFXIV on the tube, I look forward to a more polished FFXIV by March 2011. It won't be super great but I bet I'll be able to log in on day 1 and won't have to face any constant server maintenance and such. Then again maybe I will because the PS3 playerbase should be fairly large.

I still say they are rushing this game now and by reading this interview they aren't even certain on a sept release. Sounds like to me it's going to happen whether they like it or not and we'll be the ones who suffer for it with endless maintenance as the players will be beta testing it post release. Gotta love businesses and their bottom lines.
