FFXIV producer expects some to shift from PC to PS4

Yoshida talks up PS4 version

During a PAX interview this past weekend, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn producer Naoki Yoshida told us that they expect the balance between the PC and console versions of the game to be 70 percent PC / 30 percent console. On the other hand, PCs in Japan are mostly used for work, so that'll be upside down there. Yoshida explained that while Final Fantasy XI helped bring more Japanese gamers to PC, they still predict 65 percent of players to use a console for this next game.

However,  he expects that with the release of the PS4 version, knowing "how great the PS4 version is going to be," these percentages might shift and go a little bit more in favor of consoles in both territories. 

"Players will be able to have a full HD display with hundreds of characters on at a time -- and be in your living room," Yoshida explained. "This is all for the price of the PS4 console, rather than having to put together a couple thousand dollars worth of PC equipment.

"Once players realize they can do that, I think a lot of players will go that route."

Yoshida confirmed that the PS4 version of A Realm Reborn is coming early 2014, so it's not even that far off.
