"Final Fantasy XIV" Release Disaster Remains Just That

"Final Fantasy XIV" Release Disaster Remains Just That

A week after the release of the Final Fantasy XIV, many players are still experiencing the same unresolved problems and are now voicing their frustration.

Originally released on August 27, many users could not log into the FF14 server, and those who could saw restrictions and limitations on character building and development. Sony and the game's developers, Square Enix, are now pouring out their apologies and offering up their side of the story. According to Square Enix, they grossly underestimated the number of players expected to log on which caused the servers to overload. Many were unable to establish a connection.

"The fact that we had to implement these restrictions is a direct result of my inaccurate sales and login estimates, and as producer, I must accept complete responsibility for this misstep. Each and every player who has been affected has my deepest apologies." said director and producer Naoki Yoshida.

Sony is also sending out their apologies to fans as well. Sony announced that they will be giving full refunds to anyone who bought the game off their network on either August 27 or 28 and refunds will be processed immediately.

Will you be taking Sony up on their offer? Or do you think its worth it to stick it out and wait for the server problem to be remedied.
