If you opted to but the PS3 version of Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn then you will be happy to know that you will get the chance to transfer to FF14: ARR on your new PS4 for free. This does come with just one minor catch, you can only play on one console, so if you choose the PS4, then you won’t be able to play the game on the PS3. You can buy another copy and play on both, but if you bought a PS4, then you would probably want to play that console anyway.
Famitsu spoke with producer Naoki Yoshida who explained that the upgrade is a transfer of login credentials, that is what is stopping players from being able to play on both consoles. You won’t have to pay for what is sure to be an obvious improvement of the game, running on the PS4, so that should be welcomed news to anyone that is currently playing the PS3 version.
