Do not buy, Square Enix provides no support, and you can't play this without a subscription,

Summary: I bought FFXIV from flipkart(http://www.flipkart.com/realm-reborn-final-fantasy-xiv/p/itmdmnw5gjwy2jzw?pid=AVMDMNWF6YNM9V3M), registered my product on PSN using the code which came with it but still can't play the game.
Excerpt: I would honestly say if you have ever played and liked any Final Fantasy game and are just put off by the fact it is an MMO. Dont be. It is better then you could ever have imagined. I started off playing the PS3 version and then upgraded to the Collectors Edition of the PS4 one.
Pros: The story, The music, The graphics, Everything
Summary: Bought this game a while ago. Can't play it, can't get online. I have tried to register and so far nothing. The servers are all busy, etc. I have all of the FF games starting at FFVII for PS 1 and have never been so disappointed. Will not buy another FF online game ever! Waste of money.
Summary: Unlike the original release, ARR is very polished modern MMO that distinguishes itself with its distinct Final Fantasy charm. Levelling is relatively fast (think World of Warcraft 1->80), and endgame is accessible, yet deep with more to come.
Summary: I enjoy playing this, however controls are unintutive, play mechanics are not very well explained, and sending messages to other players is very difficult in a timely fasion making dungeoning difficult.
Just when I thought I was out... it brought me back in

Summary: This game has restored my faith in a damaged brand. This is my first MMO, and I love it. 1. It has an excellent single player campaign that wholly feels like a FF main-story. Good characters, deception, twists and turns. 2. The battle mechanics are very fun.
