No thanks, If one wants to play pay for a copy, register using the codes, and have at it. Trial accounts only open a can of worms, as well limit every one with in the trial window to protect vs. rmt. Trial in XIV would be 1-20 lets say, as is it's a sh*t without a pl. Now imagine SE making it x10 worse with restraints so it can't be abused!! It's to much head ache to deal with. If one can't spare 15$ to try a game, plenty of f2p games out there.
Don't be ridiculous. Trial accounts allow people to try out mmos, and they work just fine in every other game.
It could have something to do with SE's games being "cross-platform" and it being hard to do on playstation hardware (which I could understand), but right now the Playstation 3 version is still little more than a "promise". Some of us have been around long enough to know better than to put much faith in a Square Enix promises. For all intents and purposes this is a PC game, and there is no (reasonable) argument against the game having a free trial.
RMT is a **** poor argument on the best of days, and I can't believe you pulled that card. Really, RMT is the least of SE's issues right now.
EDIT: And OP, I was on your side up until this little gem:
I played final fantasy games all my life, the only one I haven't tried is XIV my opinion on final fantasy games I've played is they are all good up to 11. 11 was a failed attempt at an mmo twelve and 13 though not mmo's still sucked balls.
11 was a blockbuster compared to this game... I didn't like 12 and 13 was too linear, but if the later titles didn't appeal to you what on earth makes you think you will like this one, which is largely a cross section of the three? Edited, Nov 29th 2011 3:51pm by Torrence
