Upgrading from SE to CE Information
If you are upgrading from the SE of FFXIV 1.0
Please, please, please be aware that you can only register ONE version per platform to your service account. Essentially, this means that if you registered 1.0 to your account, then you have already used the only PC registration you are allowed for this account. You're not completely shut out of upgrading your SE to a CE, it simply means that you must purchase the PS3 version.
They've already made clear that they're implementing a $19.99 digital upgrade method for 1.0/2.0 SE users. It simply isn't available for pre-order.
Thanks for the info, could you provide a link though so I can add it here. I knew you could upgrade the 2.0 version from SE to CE, but I hadn't heard anything about the older version.
Please also update the other bit of false information before more people cancel their pre-order when they didn't have to. (granted it IS better to pre-order the PS3 version if you have a 1.0 account, it`s just not required
for the pre-order bonuses)
Ok, so... you can use the digital upgrade of the CE for ARR(PC) as a way to upgrade your original CE so you can get the bonus items, but I'm not seeing a link in the store for any digital upgrade. The only versions showing up in the Square Enix store are the SE for both PC and PS3(both physical copies) as well as the SE and CE via digital download. For now I'll add that it was mentioned on the official forum by Camate, but it isn't yet available in the Square Enix store.
I changed the language in the post to 'pre-order' from 'purchase' where necessary. Most people who already own the game are purchasing it again for early access.
Both my better-half and I are 1.0 legacy players. She is a SE, I am CE. During open beta her character did have the legacy tattoo and she did receive her legacy chocobo. My original character did also have the tattoo. I then made a new male Miquote character on the account. However, this character did not have a tattoo or legacy chocobo, it was my understanding that legacy covered the account, not just a single character? I am incorrect on this assumption and only my first character from 1.0 is 'legacy' and hence he will be the only one of my characters to get the legacy chocobo and early access? for that matter will any of my other characters get the CE in-game items??
That is a good question. I myself am not legacy, but it was my understanding that there were certain things that would only be available to characters and other things that were account wide. Just as an example, I think the legacy mount is something specific to characters you created during 1.0, but all of your characters(including the new one) would be eligible for early access.
Perhaps someone who knows more about legacy can confirm or deny this.

Its personal preference and all, but yes we need to educate WoW players that this is OUR game, these are Characters and not Toons. Time to beat that into them one at a time.
