Square Considering Bringing Final Fantasy XIV Support To PlayStation Vita
Posted by Sammy Barker
With Final Fantasy XIV preparing to get a complete overhaul -- and a promising one at that -- excitement is back on the PlayStation 3 version of the game
But what of the PlayStation Vita? It sounds like Square's got some ideas.
Were doing a reconstruction of our server system [with Final Fantasy XIV and] were going to make sure that the servers can be accessed by outside devices such as [PlayStation Vita]," boss Naoki Yoshida told RPGSite.
"That will open the door to things like applications that people can used to check their inventory, or check the market and purchase things from the auctions. Those are the things we are laying for in our server foundation, so we can be ready to implement those after [version] 2.0."
Yoshida also explained that while Final Fantasy XIV is not due out on PlayStation 3 until 2013, the company is targeting a beta for next year.
The one thing to regain that damaged player trust is to keep those promises, and one of the promises was to release a PlayStation 3 version we made that promise long, long ago, and we still havent kept it, said Yoshida.
We made that promise not only to the players, but to Sony as well. The first thing that we need to do, to regain that trust, is to fulfill those promises of bringing the PS3 version. Our priority right now is getting that version finished.
