OP  10/30/13 1:38:00 PM#1

Square Enix is reporting that over 1.5 million players have registered to play Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. This number does not reflect subscriptions, but is a strong indicator of the game's success as compared to the first time 'round.

The combined total is across North America, Europe, Japan and PAL territories on both the Windows® PC and PlayStation® 3 entertainment systems.  In related news, Square Enix also recently announced that the beta program for the next generation PlayStation 4 system will commence on February 22, 2014. 

Furthermore, the first content update (Patch 2.1) is scheduled for release later this December, which will include key features, including Player vs. Player (PvP) battle arena, new dungeons, player housing and more.

Finally, players can now also transfer their characters to another world via the World Transfer Service, which is available starting this week.  Details are available here.

1.5 should have been on PC only. Being multiplatform sharing the same servers should have boosted the amount of people registered and playing. I think the subscription was the problem, at least with the console players. And of course, the amount of bang (content) for your buck.

My opinion of course.

Either way, good games will get players with/without subs or pay2play. We all will play a game if we like it. either f2p or p2p if you love the game you will play it. companies brag and boast about their numbers. but that doesn't change the fact on if its a good game or not, the player will decide for themselves.

IMHO

That really did make me laugh out loud :)

On Topic:

Good news, as a fan of the game, thoroughly enjoying it, I hope that means some meaningful longevity with good patches for the future.

1.5 registrations? Meaningless. Give us an active count and that would actually mean something. I saw a slew of people come and go.

Though not quite meaningless as if they had decent uptake on purchases and subs they would have used that number not the PR registration divert tactic. I'm registered as a FFXIV 1.0 player but only played some of the 2.0 beta but nothing since release as my 14 days free was at release and I don't play MMO's at release for obvious reasons. I'm a little pissed that I couldn't use the 14 days at anytime seeing as they had massive problems at launch which drove home for me why I stopped playing MMO's at launch. But hey ho I'll just wait for the inevitable f2p/freemium transition which for me is assured after this little PR stunt.

I know multiple people who are waiting to purchase it when the PS4 comes out, so I imagine they'll be gettimg a bit of a bump next month.

YoshiP said that they only need 400k subscribers for this game to be around for 10 years.

 

They have that much in Japan alone.

 

You don't need WoW like numbers to be a success.  No game will ever have that much again.  What matters is, is the game turning a profit and allowing you to provide a steady stream of content.   With those considerations in mind,  FFXIV is on the right track, and given the failure of 1.0, 2.0/ARR is a resounding success.

 

If you are being objective, there's no way you can deny that.

Try not! Do or do not. There is no try.

I enjoyed my time in Eorzea up until I was hacked. The nonexistent response of SE after using all the right channels to submit my report was disappointing. At this point I wouldn't even call it a bad customer service experience... instead there was no customer experience at all!! After this I chose to not sub. any longer.

isnt that funny when Square Enix considered Tomb Raider a major failure for selling 5+ million copies and now they only need 400k people playing their mmo to be a success.

World of Tanks - 65 million registered users.

Xbox live - 40 million users.

 

But those are meaningless you see as they are not talking about *active* users, now here is a stat that actually means something

 

League of Legends - 12 million *active* daily players, 32 million active monthly players

This is actually going to be a very small % - I thought the same thing, I asked a friend who works for a game company why they were not jumping on the next gen console bandwagon.

He said - there's a ton of PS3s and 360s out there and it will take a couple of years for PS4 and XBOXones to be a large % of the market, so the initial game sales for new consoles are going to be a small number.

Not to speak against the game's fun value, but I have to wonder. Did they set a low bar for this game? Sleeping Dogs made as much as this and it was considered a failure. Same with Hitman and Tomb Raider, which sold more.

So basically it got the must buy every MMORPG crowd and nothing else. Probably be free to play in under a year.

It was/is $30 and it was free for people who bought the first version.  The question is how many of those 1.5 resubbed? How many 4-6 months from now.

Not defending the numbers, but I think they set a more realistic goal with this game.  The fact Tomb Raider remained a best seller for quite a while after release and was still deemed a failure by Square Enix means their budget was poorly managed and their expectations were unrealistic.

Back on topic, this number doesn't seem to impressive to me, nor does it really give us any indication of how well the game is doing.  I believe GW2 had this number (maybe more) of registrations just for the beta, and the game has sold over 3.5 million copies and had 400k concurrent users at one point.  I think within the first 2 weeks it had over 2 million copies sold.  Just for comparison sakes.

The game is by no means doing poorly though.  It's definitely sustaining itself right now.  My opinion of the game is pretty much across the board negative, but definitely need to give them that at least.

Raptr link because it's the cool new trend:
