I was thinking the exact same thing. Half of those questions were idiotic and most of the others have been answered already.

Not really surprised though...most interviews are just repeated questions and things we don't care about.

The only interesting bit is where they say they don't know if they'll support 3d or not. I thought they were, considering the 3d set-up they had at one of the cons.


Edit: to be fare, they are trying to promote this to people who haven't heard of mmos, or ever played one. These are questions novices would have, and rightfully so considering.

They didn't seem to interested in it. It was more of a test then anything. I think that was more about the fact that SE was optimizing for Intel cpu's, so Nvidia had to get something in there.

^This, most ps3 users have online/offline modes for their games, I think is no surprise that they cover those basic aspects on the interview, specially considering that those answers will appear in the game magazines, which is going to be the first approach of many casuals to this game.

P.D. unfortunately for us the interview had nothing new.

Nope. Those are the people who will quit after five minutes because they can't figure out how to get past the opening cut scene.

Nvidia's drivers can do stereo rendering even without actual support from the game, although you get best results with direct support. That way you don't have to fiddle with stereo separation and have problems with the UI and mouse pointer.

Honestly though I think that LCD glasses in a game you're going to play for hours and hours is a bad idea. The smaller the screen the greater the eyestrain it cases. When you move your head around the image on screen doesn't parallax like your brain expects it to, and this causes eyestrain over time. This isn't much of a problem on a giant screen in the theater but on a smaller monitor the effect is much more pronounced because your head movements are more larger compared to the size of the screen.

You'd probably be better off buying an extra two monitors and setting them up for surround gaming. The cost of two extra monitors is about the same as buying one 3D monitor and you need an SLI or Crossfire system to do either one with a smooth framerate.

Are you planning additional content downloads for Final Fantasy XIV as in other MMOs? (balpares)
We will just for you cause while there may be people like you who will buy DLC we know there are many more clueless fools er customers that will do the same thing.

Could you explain to us the Final Fantasy XIV subscription process on PS3? (Hadrien1991)
Well we were thinking of letting the PS3 version play for free since they had to wait 6 months so what better deal then to play free forver!. Nah we're kidding you pay a monthly fee just like the PC version.

Is there going to be a Final Fantasy XIV Collector's Edition for PS3? (Darthzone)
Nah we like the PC version more and hope that people just forget about the PS3 version, the director promised us if we did an interview we could stop working on the PS3 version so to answer your question no and also don't expect the standard version as well.

Will Final Fantasy XIV be available in Italian or Spanish? (faveroleone, kron-ragnarok)
WE've heard that spanish and italian can sound similar at times so we hope that in time we can integrate spanish into the system and hope that italians just learn to deal with it, on the other hand most italians have ties to the mob so it may be safer to integrate the italian version and let the spanish deal with it.

Will there be guest appearances by other FF characters in FFXIV? (kall-heinz)
We plan on adding the whole gang from 1-12 and even the gaidens. With this we hope to entice more casuals players to play just so they can log in and spend their time staring into the wonderfully rendered characters that they are fans of.

Is FFXIV going to have any offline modes? (vaan97)
Turn off your internet and find out!

Apparently, FFXIV is going to share game servers between PS3 and PC users. Are those going to be able to play against each other? If so, how are you going to manage the gap of experience created due to different release dates? (Raine7)
We've already discussed this.

What are going to be the main differences Final Fantasy XIV players will face in this new online adventure? (Kilno)
We've added a V and hope no one noticed.

How are you guys going to handle the trophies? Will it be as hard as Final Fantasy XI? (ShadowhunterrX)
Are you truly concerned about trophies they offer nothing in terms of game play and are only an artificial means of accomplishment compared to the many challenges that await you inside.

While we were there, we took the opportunity to ask the team about support for PlayStation Move and stereoscopic 3D and here’s what they had to say.
Are you sure you don't want to ask about the actual mechanics of the game or what we wanna do and how we envision this game evolving are you really focused on the visuals and a gimmick gameplay control scheme? If that was the case I believe XIII would've been more popular and loved upon compared to our previous games like 7 which had blocky armed characters and even 6 which only used pixels. We are now left wondering what truly make a good game, you've left us with a question that forces us to look deep within our soul and ponder is it the graphics that make the game, the story or the gameplay mechanics.
---

Yea I don't normally try to make gags but seeing those questions I just had to give it a shot they are just stupid questions. It's like you get 200 questions and pick the top 10 worst questions possible. The worst thing is now we know the people who asked the questions and can proceed to call them idiots lol. <_< I hope some people can get a laugh out of this.

Horrible questions, I really wish people would do more research, or not select questions from community members that are new to the series.

Edit: Also, trophies are serious business.
At least no one asked for a cheese sandwich.

I don't know, if someone asked that it probably would have made the interview at least worthwhile. I would want to see the the developer team's response

Because it’s a cross-platform game, you will be able to switch between the PS3 and PC versions as you want, so you can start with the PC version and then switch to the PS3 version: it’s really up to the players. In terms of experience, you will be able to switch your class whenever you want, and so we don’t think the gap between the releases will affect the players.




I'm calling shenanigans on this one.

There will be enough people starting at the PS3 launch that it will feel like a second release. That way you won't have problems finding groups for lower level content, and cheap items will flood the markets again.

PS3 players will be behind level-wise by 6 months, but a year later, and there won't be much of a difference. Just like the NA launch of FFXI.

When we worked on the previous version, it was new to us as well so we got a lot of questions about this and we are aware it was quite difficult. So this time we are going to make sure trophies will be more accessible, while at the same time keeping some difficult ones for more experienced players.


I can see it now... "Youve unlocked Trophy - Level 30 Marauder! Share to Facebook?"
