In a thread I was recently reading, somebody brought up the way in which one can use a buddy pass to, essentially, give someone a free copy of the game.

I would like to know whether this is as good as it sounds:

-Were I to purchase a copy, could I use my disc(s) to install on both of our computers?
-Could I then use my code(s) for my game, the buddy pass for my friend, and have us both in possession of a fully-functional, same-as-retail copy?
-Does a buddy pass come with a standard edition of the game?

Any answers appreciated.

I believe that the buddy pass counts as a full retain version from what I have heard. It was only in the collectors edition and yes you can use the disc for both.

With the game being free to play at the moment, the buddy pass works just like the retail version for as long as Square Enix is letting us play for free. But once they announce the dates that paid services are starting, if you were playing on the buddy pass you'd have to purchase the retail copy before continuing. It's really just like an extended free trial.

Yes, you can install FFXIV with any game disc and any account or code will work fine with it. (not confirmed for the PS3 version, though!)

And no, the buddy pass only came with the collector's edition.
