should i get the ps4 version or the ps3 version?

#1kjc_4Posted 6/10/2013 9:26:28 PM(edited)
the ps3 version is having a sale at futureshop (canada) for $26, but the ps4 version is superior and it might be better to play it on ps4 at the launch date since there are not as many games.. and it might be $60 on ps4.

so ps3 or ps4? $26 or $60? what do u guys think?

i am torn, help me decide

ps. although my computer can run it, but i am not getting the pc version and i never played ffxi

Obviously you should get the PS5 version.

PS3, then when it comes to PS4 and you're still playing, upgrade to that.

You should be able to keep the character, right?

Of course you can keep the character. It's not a save file being held on your system, it's saved server-side and linked to your SE account.

Whatever system you have the game on, you log in with your SE account and bam, your characters are there to access.

As for TC, on a more serious note, yes, get it on the PS3 first, unless you want to wait even longer for the game, since the PS4 won't be out until what, Winter or something? That's a few months after the PS3 release, and it may not even be a launch title.

Using your post to ask a question about this...

If I bought the ps3 version and have my subscription and everything, when the ps4 version comes out will I have to buy the game again or just download it to the ps4 and keep playing?

i think you have to buy another ps4 version of the game. And i just realized ps4 online play needs psn+ and ps3 is free. So in that sense you have to pay more each month to subscribe to psn+ to play this on ps4.

even though i still have several months of psn+ left, ps3 might be a better choice here... hmm

Well if that is true then its too bad.
I asked because I assumed that it was going to be like playing a subscription mmorpg on a different computer.

I dont have a problem with the obligatory psn+, so I will probably just enjoy the phase 3 of the beta (If I am invited) and the phase 4, and then wait for late 2013- early 2014 to buy it on ps4.
