The PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIV dies a quick death this week

0

It's only supported on PC and PS4 going forward

As a gentle reminder, as announced roughly a year ago, Square Enix is ending support for the PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIV this week. On June 16, to be exact, when the early access period for the upcoming expansion Stormblood arrives. If you're set up for an automatic payment system and only own the PS3 edition, they'll be suspended.

As a bonus you won't even need to fiddle with a code or convoluted process, as your PS4 license will be upgraded automatically -- you just need to upgrade to PS4 hardware (which is easier said than done, price-wise).

Having played the game a bit on PS3 (mostly when my wife was using the PS4), I can't say I'll miss it -- it chugged heavily even in the most basic of circumstances. I can't wait to boot up Stormblood and try out all of the PS4 Pro enhancements.

End of Service [Final Fantasy]
