PS3 pre-order code registrationFollow

Okay so I can't seem to get a straight answer on this.

I have 2 Pre-order codes from Gamestop to use for the PS3.

The website to register for early access is asking for a 20-digit code (apparently this is the PC version only.)

My assumption based on everything I'm seeing is that we need to type the 18 digit codes for PS3 into the XMB under Redeem Codes.

Anyone at home still (I'm at work) that can verify this for us please?

You can input the PS3 code on the website also, but good luck, servers are getting hammered.

And yes 18 for PS3, 20 for PC

So I pre-ordered the PS3 copy, but plan to play on PC mostly (PS3 for crafting/gathering laziness on the couch). If I input the PS3 code, will I still get all my stuff on my already active PC account for early access?

As long as you link it to your PC account. I did the same thing for early access. Have 1.0 but not CE or Legacy and didn't want to buy a 2nd PC copy. Figured sooner or later I'd wanna couch/bed game so got the PS3.

You will also occasionally get the "There was a problem with your code. Make sure you entered it correctly." error also. Keep trying eventually it will go through.

This is the info I'm seeing:


Windows Pre-Order Code Registration


Please enter your Windows pre-order code for FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.

For pre-order codes on the PlayStation®3, please register through PlayStation®Store.

the Store only redeems 12 digit codes

so what are we supposed to do?

This reminds me of hitting the login button over and over again after I got booted from the server on Saturday.

On that link, after you sign in, there's a spot to enter the code, then 2 boxes one for PS3 and one for PC. Click the correct one and hit "Redeem my code" followed by "Confirm"

Repeat 3102 times.

It really depends on which "RNG GOD" you choose during character creation in P4.

I have the PC code (also 18 digits), and am putting it in on the same page. There's a selection for either PS3 or PC. upon putting in my code, I'm also getting the "There was a problem. Please try again later." message.

If the page didn't take 1-2 minutes just to refresh, I'd just spam-enter my code until it went through. I'm just not patient enough to wait around just to get an error though.

No I did not do the PSN pre-order, but I was tempted to get a refund from Gamestop to save money and buy from PSN, but I chose not to because I want the boxes and the items they come with too. Not to mention the PS3 discs in case we ever need them.

I pre-ordered this game on May 25th 2013 through SE. I received an email 5min later with my order confirmation and my 18 digit code int this format XXXXXX-xxx-XXXXXX-xxx. There was also a link to register my pre-order, and info that I would receive a later email letting me know when I could register. I haven't received that email yet, so no worries.

I'm assuming that once I receive the email, I can register my pre-order. Have the people having problems registering their pre-order received emails telling them to register or just being proactive(diplomacy in action), without having the emails?

Believe me, I understand the urgency.Smiley: smile

I just want a screen that says "You're all set... You'll be okay to download and play the game for early access on the 24th." Or something along those lines.

Perhaps they're only accepting PS3 codes at the moment. I haven't received any email saying that pre-registration is available for PC yet.

That's not mine. I borrowed it from the beta forums. I've seen both ps3 and windows versions so the site is working if you get lucky.

Okay then I take back all the negative comments I made about you being a lucky bastage (in my head) when I saw your post.

You're okay in my book! Smiley: grin

For people not in the beta, P4 client will work for release/early access. Or for people like me that have it on PC but still need their PS3 clients Smiley: tongue

Yea but the beta p4 client for the pc and ps3 was supposed to be good for early access and the game launch.
No need to d/l anything else..

This thread explains how to download and install the test client (Windows version).
FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (Beta Version)

Please download the game client here.
* The download size is approximately 109MB.

* This software can be used for Beta Test phase 4 (Final Beta), early access, and the official release once the game has launched.

That one?

I'm reasonably certain this is true, as well. I'm almost 100% sure I read somewhere that the Beta 4 client IS the Early Access and Release client. I, too, can't seem to find the link so as to prove it, but I am reasonably certain. Of course, you're always free to delete the client and reinstall. Smiley: nod

Edit: Ooops! Sent too late. :)

Yea that is where I saw it too.. But that is the pc. Maybe it is not the same for the ps3? It does not say it on the ps3 page but the fact it can update the client I would assume it would just update.

In your PS3, Go into Account Management >>Transaction Management>> Services List

If you pre-ordered through PSN, the listing for early access will be in the FFXIV folder, as well as your bonus items pack.
