I went to buy it and saw it was only $25, first I thought I was getting a great deal, then that they'd never let us do that and the upgrade is only for disc copies, then... after too long sadly... I realised it was just the $15 sub making the difference. Smiley Very Happy


little confused on what you saying....  but the FREE upgrade from ps3 to ps4 is for disc and digital copies of the game.  The disc copy is just the client (so you wouldnt have so much to download).  Once you put in the codes you get when you buy the game, everything else will take place from the game file itself on the system and you will log in with your SE info and be in the game.

 

PS3 copies of the game are going for really cheap at some stores.  If you can find a good deal on a ps3 copy of the game (make sure its not used lol) grab it.

Did some looking for ppl....  these are the 2 stores with the cheapest PS3 copies that ppl should be able to go to and grab right now.

 

If you get the game, do the whole registering process with the codes that come with the game, you will be able to upgrade to the PS4 verison for free at 1am PST/4am EST, and also take part in the early access

So I preordered ffxiv from gamestop, turns out that gamestop isn't one of the stores doing the early access thing, so that sucks, mainly cause I used store credit to pay for the game so I can't just get a full refund and buy from the square enix store -_- only 4 days to go I suppose

others have hit up amazon, order the game, got the email with the preorder/early access code, used the code first, and then cancel their order.  make sure you select the free shipping option cuz that will usually delay the billing of your CC/debit by like a day or two due to processing and stuff.

 

not saying its the right thing to do, but you gotta do what you gotta do Smiley Tongue


I'm shocked the code is not voided when they cancel the order

Finally been doing coil since late September of last year. Beaten Turn 5 in late November. After months of nothing but Allagan battle axe, cane, sword, spear etc. My bow dropped after two weeks of farming since the coil turns 1-5 lockout was removed.

Just upgraded this morning and it's awesome. The jump in graphic quality and speed of the app is just glorious. I'm not sure I would ever want to play it again on PS3.

Agreed Joanna, the PS4 version is like night and day compared to the PS3 version.
Its beautiful visually, and I havent had a single frame rate drop so far. Using the portals is lightning fast as well.

My niece plays on a very well built PC, and the PS4 version is right there with her high end PC, in every aspect.

Im not trying to start a PC/PS4 flame war, just giving a reference as to how good the PS4 version of the game is.
