Final Fantasy XIV Collector's Edition

I have recently purchased the Final Fantasy XIV Collector's Edition and I have to say I am very happy!
This is the cover art to the giant, 13" diagonal box, both beautiful and mesmerizing. It's a reminder of the old Final Fantasies. The one in dark armor looks almost like Firion or Cecil. 

This is the back cover slip, displaying all that comes within the box and includes the system requirements. The way it's organized is actually pretty well done.

When you take off the plastic cover from the book-like box you will be able to remove the back cover slip and see a pleasant work of art along with a giant XIV.

Inside the box you will find three things. First is the actual game wrapped in shrink-wrap for extra protection. Then you will find your security token and your customized, leather-bound journal. It is all perfectly displayed in the already heavy feeling and beautiful looking book-like case. It certainly (in display and aesthetic appeal) was worth the $75.00 + Tax.

This is actually one of the main reasons I bought the game. This security token is actually quite nifty. They sell them as a stand-alone unit... but who would want a normal one when you can get a Final Fantasy XIV customized one?! That little red button can be pressed and it will display 6 digits that are unique each time (of course that means there are only 10x10x10x10x10x10 unique combinations... or 1,000,000... so press it 1,000,000 times to see all combinations). 

Now after opening the actual game, you will find your game disk, instruction manual, some codes and such for redeeming all of the special stuff you get, and your bonus DVD (a little less than 40 minutes long).

Finally you have the amazing, leather journal. It comes with a built-in orange bookmark and weapon art water-marks on each page. At the end of the book there are images and artworks of monsters and other things within the game. It's quite breathtaking.

Unfortunately my laptop is unable to run this game and I don't have the money to purchase either a new computer nor a long-term account. Still, despite my lack of ability to play this amazing game, I have no problem and have no regret with my purchase. I suggest if you have the money and ability, get this version before it's gone.


  1. Wow gotta be honest, I'm a little bit jealous but congrats anyways your acquisition.

  2. Damn I'm jealous. I saw some game play footage on IGN and the graphics are quite amazing for an MMO. The collectors addition is really nice, I want one.

  3. :') I can't wait. I'll be so god damn happy when it ocmes out.

  4. are you gonna review DS games too? or atleast others consoles? that would be cool.

    Cheers, fan from lithuania

  5. That journal looks like an amazing gift for someone who likes final fantasy.

  6. wow this brings me back! i remember when i was such a huge FF fan, my favorite was always 9 and 6, i preferred the lower tech FF from the more modern ones with guns and such. I feel like playing one again, this one looks fun.
