Quote:
Players who have version 1.0 will not need to purchase FFXIV: ARR to continue playing on the PC. However, version 1.0 owners that wish to play the PlayStation 3 version will need to purchase a copy for the PlayStation 3. There are a number of points that you should be aware of should you consider purchasing a new copy of FFXIV: ARR so please ensure that you read the following before making a pre-order or purchase.
Players Who Own FFXIV Version 1.0
Players who own FFXIV version 1.0 will not need to purchase the PC version of FFXIV: ARR and will be able to download the FFXIV: ARR software for free.
* Details on downloading the FFXIV: ARR software will be provided at a later date.

Furthermore, users who have version 1.0 registration codes that have not yet been registered will be able to register them and play FFXIV: ARR on PC at the start of the service.

Players Who Own the FFXIV version 1.0 Collector’s Edition
Players who own the FFXIV version 1.0 Collector’s Edition will receive the FFXIV: ARR Collector’s Edition in-game bonus items (Helm of Light, Baby Behemoth Minion, Behemoth Barding, and Coeurl Mount) for free. The in-game bonus items will be delivered via Moogle Letter when FFXIV: ARR launches.

Players Who Have Fulfilled the Requirements of the Legacy Campaign
Players who have fulfilled the requirements of the Legacy Campaign will be able to take part in early access and play before the official start of service.

Important Information for Customers Purchasing the PlayStation 3 Version
You will only be able to register one copy of FFXIV: A Realm Reborn for PlayStation 3 to a Sony Entertainment Network account. It is not possible to register or play two or more copies of the PS3 version on the same account even if you purchase additional software. Please note that only one Sony Entertainment Network account can be linked to a Square Enix Account.

Logging into the Same Account on both Windows and PlayStation 3
Customers who own a copy of FFXIV version 1.0 and wish to use their account on the PlayStation 3 version will need to purchase a copy of the PlayStation 3 version. It will then be possible to use your characters on either platform by tying your existing service account to the PlayStation 3 version upon launching it for the first time. However, please note that your account will only be able to log into one platform at a time.

Collector's Edition Digital Upgrade Service
The Collector's Edition digital upgrade offers customers the ability to upgrade their standard FFXIV account to Collector's Edition status via the “FFXIV Service Center” website that is scheduled to be opened at the launch of official service, which then grants the in-game bonus items included with the Collector's Edition. Customers in possession of the Collector's Edition for either version 1.0 or A Realm Reborn will receive these Collector's Edition items without needing to purchase the upgrade.
* Characters that have already been created will be able to receive the items.

Seems this was posted before it was ready, I do like the extra bonuses though.

Playing with Multiple Characters at same time. I'm intrigued what they have there, but it redirects back to main page.

It's likely an announcement regarding how people dualbox and etc since that's becoming more common in other MMOs outside of Asia. (People did it for years on asian MMOs and seems to have picked up steam out west since XI/WoW.)

It's SE, if they post a topic stating they're releasing a release date don't expect to see a release date in the topic.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

I'm real curious how dual boxing will work. Is it possible to have more than 1 Sony Entertainment Network account on a single PS3? I only have 1 user account created on my PS3 ,I live alone so haven't had the need to create more than 1 user. If I create another user on the same PS3 is that the same as creating a new Sony Entertainment Network account?
I already bought the original CE for 1.0 and would like to buy a copy for the PS3 as well. I'm hoping to be able to buy 1 PS3 copy to both , play my original account on either PC OR PS3 depending on my mood, and to dual box occasionally with my original account on PC and a new separate account on PS3. Hope this makes sense.

Typical Squenix, although usually worse than that to be honest. It's usually "this is our big announcement that there will be a big announcement on another date, please wait a little longer."

The thread title is a little misleading, OP. I have a feeling someone out there is going to assume the launch date is today (5/23).

Yeah, true. Considering how many new threads we receive from people who know next to nothing about 2.0, I'm just concerned about misinformation.

If you look at the french twitter:
https://twitter.com/FF_XIV_FR

There is the mention "See you in 6 hours"
That was posted 3 hours ago, so it's gonna match JP midnight.

Maybe the post was made a couple of hours early, or maybe we are gonna get more information

Maybe it's just me but now that we have a date for release I have lost total interest on when phase 3 will start (knowing when it actually goes live is better). It has me wondering what I want to do. Yes I get a free download from past 1.0 account but seeing what comes with the preorder.....

From the looks the preorder is being run through good ole DR. With the free download what happens if you have to do a restore and lose the install. I had such a problem with SOA for ffxi. I was told I would have to pay again to get access to the download being it was past 30 days from the release. Kind of makes me want actual disc's just for that kind of reason. I just don't want to deal with DR again.

One thing I'm a little confused about...

Phase 4 is open beta, open to the whole of humanity. Character data from phase 4 is supposed to carry over to launch.

How then is early access a pre-order perk? Early access to open beta?

I believe in 1.0 there was a lapse in time from the end of phase 4 to launch. They didn't just launch RIGHT OUT of phase 4 into release. Those with collector's edition got to start before the official launch date.

Wow they are going to FLY through phase 3 and 4. The length of phase 1 and 2 gave me the impressions that the latter phases would be much longer. This is a great sign on the state of the game if they are willing to set a date so close.
