If you are willing to look past the subscription prices for Final Fantasy 14 and pick up the game at launch, you may be facing a difficult decision on which version to pick up. Square-Enix are releasing the game on both PS3 and PC, with owners able to play with each other on the same servers in a rare glimpse of cross-platform joy.
If you consider yourself in this bracket, you are definitely going to want to check out this fantastic new gameplay video that we have for you. Square-Enix has released some new footage for Final Fantasy XIV, giving a detailed look at some of the breathtaking locations and environments that players will come across on their travels.
More importantly, the video shows both PS3 and PC versions in the same locations so you can make up your own conclusions on which platform looks better. Having said that, you can watch the video and easily see that PC is the clear winner in a direct graphics comparison – there is no debate.
That is not to say that the PS3 version looks terrible though – far from it. We still think it is amazing that Square-Enix has kept to their word on a PS3 version and don’t forget it is good for players to be able to play on the same servers as PC players – an achievement in itself.
As we told you in a previous report, Square-Enix are planning to charge either £7.69 in the UK and $14.99 in the US, for a 30 day subscription to Final Fantasy 14. For an ‘always-on’ (that word almost sounds too scary to even write anymore) experience that will see you witness other players seamlessly fighting battles as you walk past them, are you planning to cough up the fees to enjoy this in August?
Watch the video above and let us know your thoughts on the graphical differences between PS3 and PC. PS3 beta begins soon – we can’t wait for that.
