For those of you who are seeking an explanation as to why the PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIV has been delayed into 2011, Square-Enix has given us the main reason why it happened.
When speaking in an VG247 interview at GamesCom, producer for the game Hiromichi Tanaka has spoken out on the differences between the two platform versions of the game.
According to him, the main reason why the PS3 version was delayed, is solely down to memory. He said that the PC doesn’t have a problem with this, but the PS3 has memory restrictions.
Here is a portion of his interview, helped by a translator: “On the PC, they have enormous memory. For PS3, there’s a restriction. They are adjusting the memory size and customising it; it took longer then we were expecting. But we’re really working hard to bring it out as soon as possible.”
Just to remind you, the PC version is due out at the end of September, while the PS3 version will not be available until March 2011. Let us know your thoughts on this one. Don’t forget about the open beta details we gave you yesterday.
