Technical concerns behind FF14’s PS3 delay

The PC version of Final Fantasy XIV was last week dated for September, while the PlayStation 3 version was pushed to 2011. And why was that, exactly?

“Technical problems,” it turns out.

That’s according to producer Hiromichi Tanaka who, while understanding “the wrath of players,” has apologized on the developers’ behalf, even if they did do “everything they could to have a simultaneous release date”.

“Unfortunately they have encountered many technical problems on the development of the game for PS3,” he explained, further adding, “We strive to release the game as soon as possible.”

“If possible, we would publish the game sooner, we would like to start as soon as possible the beta on PS3.”

The PS3 version is currently on for a ‘early March’ release.
