Why Final Fantasy XIV can have millions of fans

Over one million gamers signed up to play FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. Following months of beta testers being tight-lipped Square Enix loosened its NDA with the arrival of Phase 3. The game currency in Final Fantasy XIV is called FFXIV Gil too. The results were conclusive. The work that's been done under FFXIV's all-new leadership has invigorated the once troubled game with qualities that Final Fantasy XI and MMO fans were craving back in 2010, plus some. Gamers have been especially pleased with menu and gameplay fluidity, and the lively world. It now looks and feels the part of a proper Final Fantasy release.
