    Want Final Fantasy 16? Just Buy a PlayStation 5

    Producer Naoki Yoshida seems to suggest a PC release isn't happening at all.

    When Square Enix first revealed Final Fantasy XVI it wasn't really clear if the game would be released later on PC. Most of us kind of assumed it would be since, you know, every other Final Fantasy has come to PC eventually. The initial trailer reveal, still up on YouTube courtesy of IGN, even says "also available on PC" in fine print at the bottom in the final seconds of the trailer.

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
