so as we all know from the recent videos...the latest footage for the PS3 version looks HORRENDOUS. screen tearing, unplayable frame rates, and nasty visuals.

I highly doubt they would ever be able to get people to pay for that.

so my question is: do you think they will delay the PS3 version and go ahead with the release of ARR for PC only?

No. The ps3 version looks fine for what it's supposed to. What you're watching is a compressed video. Even the PC version looked bad to be till I ran the benchmark for myself. If you ran the benchmark on low and medium settings, it still looks nice. Meaning, that that ps3 wont look any different.

Garbage in. Garbage out. I've never seen one FFXIV related comment from you that didn't also have a complaint in the same line >.>

whether I am being too negative or not...

the issue remains that based on the video, the PS3 version of FFXIV isn't even close to being ready for retail.

video compression doesnt account for the jaggy mess seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KW6fL5X1fM4&feature=youtu.be&t=6m45s
with rampant screen tearing all over the screen, and 5 frames per second.

so do you think PC users will have to wait as a result? or will the PS3 version alone be delayed? there's simply no way that product can be sold ^

Sigh..

If you'd read the other threads, you'd see that SE is working with Sony to fix those problems. They're well aware of them, and I seriously doubt they'd release the PS3 version of the game with such a crappy framerate.

I think the PS3 version is right on schedule. Once again if you'd paid attention to the other information out there, you'd see that the PS3 version isn't even being released for beta access until the later phases of beta.. presumably so they can make sure it functions well enough that someone would actually want to test it.

Good point; but he also stated that they are only doing the ps3 version because they promised it. They said if FFXIV is successful and enough people ask for it they are looking at other consoles coming out and would release it.

That's why he won't look at F2P and micro transactions until 2.0 is launched because they want every single promise they ever made about the game to be completed. He's said that many times. I also don't think we will get PS3 limitations, already the newest items for FFXI aren't even coming to PS2/XBOX, pc is getting a completely revamped UI with chat tabs supported outside the actual game window.

One of the recent interviews from him (2 days ago) said that SE needed to change and they took the fans and the final fantasy name for granted. I'm really excited about this.

Ya sorry meant that as "tongue in cheek" response Smiley: tongue And yes I do sort of remember a interview where they stated the PC version wouldn't be drug down by the PlayStation version this time around. So I guess the whole "EQUAL PLATFORMS!" noise from XI's early days has been finally shot down. Biggest complaint the 8ish years I played XI, I had a PC that could run 99% of everything on the market on max settings without breaking a sweat, but do something major in XI and it ran like crap.

Quite simply, because SE hasn't said it would be delayed, and neither of us knows enough about their development cycle to argue that point.

It's too early to cry delay on this. Wait until we can actually get our hands on the PS3 version of the game in beta. That's the only way we'll have enough information to base any kind of conclusions on.

No, that's not safe to assume at all.

Don't assume things based on incomplete information, stop that.

Obviously they aren't going to sell it like that. They aren't even releasing it for beta like that. But you don't have enough information to say they can't fix it before they launch the PC version of the game. Only SE has that data.

I won't worry about delays until the PC version has an official release date. Which it does not.

So if they had to, they could "delay" the PC version until the PS3 version is already ready go to. Whether that means tacking on an extra week or an extra month, who knows?

No one is arguing that it looks good right now. (Well, it looks okay in stills. Just animated looks like crap.)

We're arguing that, when the beta version of PC hasn't even started yet, that it is unfair to extrapolate the need for a delay in the PS3 version when it's not even being beta tested until Phase III. No one will be testing out the PS3 version for approximately two months. That gives them two months to get it optimized. Assuming they're doing the smart thing and have an entire team dedicated to it (considering they brought Sony on board and knowing how IT project best practices go, there's a good 99% chance the PS3 team is dedicated exclusively to it), that means they have plenty of time to get it up and running before PS3 beta starts, probably in late April or early May.

Yoshi has engaged a team from Sony to help with optimizing. What you see isn't lag, it's frames being dropped, there is a huge difference. Optimization will improve the framerate, and if you had bothered to read my story about the media event you would see that they're about 75% done with optimization, that last 25% will take care of the framerate issues.

I expect they showed the PS3 version even though it's in this state because it's kind of like the Yeti right now. Lots of rumor, with no sightings. Now we know that not only is there a PS3 version, but that framerate issues aside it's going to look pretty good. Anyone who thought the PS3 version would look just as good as the PC version at high settings had unrealistic expectations.

Just to add to Wint's reply, Yoshi has said numerous times in various interviews that the ps3 version wouldn't look as good as the pc version. Yoshi has been completely honest about the subject and I believe I read somewhere that the ps3 version wont even be completely finalized until after phase 2 right before they add beta support to the ps3.

I think it looks fine, personally. I experienced lag like that on the PS2 all the time. ****, my PS3 does that running regular games. Most people only notice this stuff under a microscope. You get used to it in no time.

I'm going to play devil's advocate here and say that I don't completely disagree with Poubelle. I agree that he tends to be pretty negative, but I think a few of his gripes are pretty well warranted.

I too thought the PS3 version had an obviously lower frame rate, but I just sort of wrote it off as a hardware limitation. From what I understand, the PS3 is notorious for being difficult to develop software for, but it's mostly due to hardware architecture, rather than raw power, which it obviously has.

All things considered, it doesn't look so bad as to where it'd be considered unplayable. Maybe that's the tradeoff ps3 users will have to make; you'll give up the definitive experience in exchange for the convenience and comfort of playing on your couch.

I think the effect of fresh start servers is diminished if the PC and ps3 release dates are separated. Given that the ps3 will be the access point for a great deal of new players who aren't interested in PC gaming, it would be foolish for the "ship" to leave without them and to give them a "fresh start" on servers that aren't so fresh anymore.

There's no reason these days you can't just plug an HDMI cable into your TV and use a controller. Still, I have to wonder if you guys ever even play on these consoles if you think that kind of performance is something to complain about. Best I can figure is that you're spoiled by very high-end PC's.

I wouldn't say that we're spoiled. There's a lot of time and effort that goes into building a machine for gaming or otherwise, in the end there's a payoff.

Spoiled is definitely the wrong choice in words; I choose to play on PC.

It's not like I was suggesting that your mommies and daddies bought you a high end PC. I just find it a little hard to believe that you've actually spent any significant amount of time actually playing on the PS3 to think that these framerates are horrible. Most any game that has to render a lot of assets has the same occasional slowdown.

Ps3 exclusives don't usually suffer those issues. AAA titles like uncharted, MGS4, GOW, inFamous etc, run great. Multi-platforms however.... ps3 ports never get done correctly.

I believe that's why Yoshi was getting help directly from Sony to help with it. I hope they are successful. I'm looking forward to the ps3 trophies :D

I remember lots of angry PS3 Skyrim costumers. Just in general with issues as well as delays on the DLC. Haven't kept up with that recently though.

It's still on the front page even.

Not to mention it's the second story on our home page.

No, they aren't doing trophies. Sony requires that every trophy you're going to allow for the game be detailed when you submit the master disk, so the only time there would ever be any updates to trophies is if they did any expansions. Yoshi-P instead wants to implement in-game trophies and achievements.

Sorry Smiley: blush. I just read it! Aren't not? Now I'm confused! I always thought Sony required games to have trophies, so I never gave it much thought. I figured it wouldn't similar to in game achievements. That they'd be an all encompassing trophy. Such as: Complete story mode, Get all jobs to 50, Kill all NMs etc. Not like a trophy for every thing we did. That's why I don't fully understand. The new expansion will have new content and just like all dlc add ons for ps3 games, they don't come with A LOT of trophies usually 5-10 tops. So the intial ARR would have the normal 40-50 trophies and expansions would each add 5-10. Oh well, disappointment abounds Smiley: disappointed

I was a little surprised I guess but at the same time not really disappointed, I've never been one to chase trophies or achievements but I know there are plenty who enjoy that kind of thing. I'll be curious to see what they come up with for in game stuff.

I agree too.. I saw the video and it was bad. This thread is on every FFXIV forum I follow so it is a concern and other people saw it. Anyone knows this game is close to release at this stage once it hits beta, there is not allot of time anymore but there is some time. The disks need to be printed etc. By optimize there is not allot at this time that can be done.. The ps3 is not a new system or is it new to SE. What my concern is how much are they going to compromise the graphics to help with frame rate and tearing which is there too, part of it is the video too...

Since I already purchased a ps3 for this game I and just this game I am a little concerned.

How is at least 4-6 months out close to release? My guess is they won't submit the master disk until the PS3 beta starts in phase 3 which is several months away still. They have time, they have Sony helping, there is no reason to fear the PS3 version not making the deadline.

Again Its not so much making the dead line as it is how much are they going to compromise the ps3 version. the system is old so they know what it can do at this point.

That's the choice you make when you choose that platform. The PS2 version never looked as good as the PC version for XI.

Might be a reason to pull for the game being launched on the PS4 as well Smiley: smile

Oh I agree if you don't have a system yet. But this game has been in development on the ps3 for how long? Allot of people own the ps3 and is a huge user base...

Problem with new systems is its is allot of money to bring the software over. Big investment when you do not know how well its going to sell or even when it might launch.. PS4 may not even launch this year, there choice in AMD may hurt. SE does not have much money too gamble with...

I think they made the right choice in the ps3 at this stage.

Again though at this stage in the life of the ps3 most programming tricks are known. So optimize become how much do you compromise.

Realistically? 2 years. I'm sure they didn't throw EVERYTHING away when they started ARR but they did state they rebuilt everything from the ground up.

Just a guess but I believe they meant the pc version from the ground up. The ps3 would require a different engine completely already since it was totally different architecture.... I know they originally said the pc version, PS3 and xbox version were being developed at the same time. The xbox version was scrapped roughly about a year ago when they could not come to terms with Microsoft.

Now a Xbox version would have been assume I have 2 Xboxes for FFXI.

I think both PC and PS3 versions of the game, will be delayed a month or so, just so they can brush up on bug fixes, and system overhauls, now i am not sure what SE will do regarding the PS3-PS4 but hopefully thy will stick with the PS3 until PS4 drops in price after release.

In terms of Final Fantasy XIV, PS3 uses the same game engine that PC version does. But the game itself is optimized for PS3 hardware.

In fact, most of 1.0's faults came from shoving a console game engine (Crystal Tools) down a MMO's throat and patching it with relatively slow Lua scripts. (This was all according to a Yoshi interview, at least.)

You do realize that the price of the ps4 won't drop for quite some time after its release. I'm sure people are just happy its on the ps3.

The 'delays' are pretty well built within the beta schedule. And as there is no certain date, I doubt they'll release one until they're past ready for launch.

What I do predict, is a server crash in the beginning that may delay service.

I hope those beta testers are crashing the servers good and hard first.

Michael Squints Palledorous walked a little taller that day. And we had to tip our hats to him. He had crashed a server. And he crashed it hard and good.
