Will really be cool to actually see my spell effects on screen, and not have to worry so much about load times.

I wonder how viable this would be for a dungeon run if you had to rush to the bathroom...

Or is it just for crafting?

If it's anything like how you could use your PSP to play PS3 games worked, you need to have 3 things:

A) You have to leave your PS4 on while you're gone
B) Your PS4 has to have a reliable, always-on broadband connection to the internet, and
C) (and this is the hard part) Your Vita has to have a good quality broadband connection at your remote location (such that you could play a YouTube video without any buffering).

But even if all that isn't an issue, the biggest problem I foresee is that the Vita screen has a maximum resolution of 960x544, which is a big problem since FFXIV runs at 720p at a minimum. It won't fit on the screen.

I'm certain i read somewhere when this was first announced you would not be able to do dungeons on the vita. Only craft gather and solo. If I weren't on my phone I'd look it up.

Well, it looks like you can at least fish. I was kind of surprised that they managed to fit it on the screen (apparently using a technique called "macroblocking"). I'm just not sure how practical it will end up being since on-screen text could end up being hard or impossible to read. It's a definite wait-and-see for me. The Vita demo starts @ 0:40.

I read no dungeons.. Only single player content like crafting, gathering, missions etc.

When the ps4 version officially launches will we be forced to buy another actual game disc? Or will we be able to port over our subscription. I played beta on ps3 and pc, but then when it officially launched I had to choose pc or ps3 or buy two copies.

You will have to buy a copy if you're only a PC subscriber, if you own a PS3 license then you will not need to buy one, your PS3 account will transfer to PS4 for free.

Also, I mentioned this in another thread... but if you're looking for PS4's for the holidays, you can go to this website to see who has anything available... just type in PS4 in the search.

Who Has It

They also have an iPhone app, possibly an android one as well if you search for it.

Good luck!

I used this app and was able to order a bundle with an extra controller from target. I just got the back order email today lol. It says they'll do their best to have it to me for Xmas. So the app does work. Mostly ;)

Thanks for posting it :)

Yeah exactly! All I did was post a useful site for people who were interested in getting a PS4 for FFXIV but were having trouble finding them.

Not one person was even thankful, I regret even trying. Every time I have started a topic there I get flamed... so I'm going to stop trying. I do post quite a bit, and I troll their forums for information, but I should really stick to ZAM for this type of stuff.
