Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition is out today. It comes with new additional content such as story additions, new cutscenes, expanded Insomnia map, a FPS mode, bosses, and more below in the video.
As much as I like FF XVas a guilty pleasure, the price is a bit steep, even if you owned the base game like myself. The “Royal Edition” add-on is $15 for the above but is $50 for all the previous DLC’s that were on the Season pass such as Episode Gladio, Prompto, Ignis, and the Comrades multiplayer pack plus additional weapons.
Considering that the Royal edition isn’t the final version of FFXV, the price is huge even if you already bought the game. $50 is practically the cost of a full game. By the time the “Complete Edition” comes out, I can’t imagine how much the price will be.
While I think it’s great that Tabata (Developer of FFXV) and Square-Enix are doing to improve the game and add additional features to create a better game, only the most hardcore fans will invest once again. I did like Final Fantasy XV despite the flaws. While I believe Square-Enix will give a great opportunity for people that didn’t buy the game initially, it may also alienate people who bought the base game. For myself, I’ll probably wait until there’s a big discount for Royal Edition or hope that the Complete Final Fantasy XV isn’t over $100.
What do you think about the price for Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition? Is it too much or do you think the price is okay?
PlayStation Experience 2017 starts in December 9th and 10th, 2017 in Anaheim, California. The event focuses on PlayStation game developers and upcoming games for the system. Most of the larger spaces will be for first party developers for PlayStation while smaller areas are focused on 3rd party developers and Indie games. They will have spaces directly for PSVR games and PlayStation Vue. Capcom Cup, the Street Fighter V qualifier tournament, will be held during the event as well. There will be a giveaway cards if you try out game demos, free items and goodies from vendors, and you can go to Video Game Awards for $20 more if you purchase a ticket for PlayStation Expo which is nearby the venue. As somebody who worked at PlayStation planning last years event, I’m sure it’ll go well. Unfortunately, it will also not come back to San Francisco. Although the list of developers and games you can play are below, unique announcements for the Press Conference.
Below is a list of developers and the list of all demos at the convention.
