Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn + 30 Days + 60 Days (90 Days) £29.99 Delivered @TescoDirect

12
Found 30th Aug 2013
Was looking to order this from ShopTo the other day for around the same price as everywhere else (£14.95) but with Tesco offering £5 off £35, its such better value to buy the two together.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PC £15.99
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn TimeCard £19.00
= £34.99 - £5.00 = £29.99

Compared to other prices, this makes the TimeCard effectively £15 - which is the cheapest anywhere (Plus £7.50/Month, better than subscription - £8.99/Month).

Plus the benefit of CashBack + Clubcard Points.

Enter code TD-R4NQ at checkout. EXP 01/09/13

90 days? The time card is 60 days is it not?

Worryingly, it specifies it as 'Xbox 360' on the Tesco product page, but doesnt mention time
tesco.com/dir…283

Amazon doesnt mention it either
amazon.co.uk/Fin…ard

Edit: Just been told by a mate its potentially 60 day, although the bird on the phone at Game told me it was 90 days... Her words "Why would a 60 day time card cost £17.99 (their price) when its only £7.99 a month to subscribe"

Updated Title to display,

Checked the subs, they're £8.99/Month on a rolling - or the cheapest is £7.69 if you do a 6 month contract (i.e. £46.14)

So the card still works out to be £15 on top (if we match the game price to £15 - same as everywhere).

£15=£7.50/Month, still the cheapest rate out there.

Probably because the cover picture says 60 days is why they don't mention it?

I'd have probably gone for this myself if I didn't already buy it though.

Damn was going to get it but then realised i dont have a CD drive >_< Alienware m11x notebook, dont suppose anyones come across any digital copies with similar price/deal?

Ah, I've just noticed that after I took a closer look following the “Italian” comment. But surely they should specify in the title/description. Naughty Tesco!

Only reason I ended up browsing for a deal was because they closed off all digital and I needed to get one ‘as soon as possible’

The choice was £15 at ShopTo in 5 minute dispatch (my mates arrived today after ordering yesterday at 3:30)

But as I cant play till Sunday night anyway – I'm happy to wait until Monday and save myself some pennies on a bundle.

If I really don’t get on with it after the initial 30, then the cheapest time card on eBay is £20+ BIN, so will probably just launch it on there for a quick auction (or return it to Tesco depending on timescales).

But after the debacle of some other games and credit card details (Original XIV being one of them!) I'm cautious about putting in card details – and will always stick with cards.

Digital sales have been suspended until further notice to ease traffic on the servers.

I'm sure you can download the client and just enter the cd key?

Original Poster

My understanding is that all avenues of download had been suspended.

However, this was my plan tonight. To download the client alone - then simply enter my key (like Secret World).

But will check when im home. Surely people downloaded the client from the server... would affect the servers? So if their plan was to ease the servers, I wouldnt be surprised if they had suspended that too.

People would have the disk - so they could (admittedly, slowly) still get the game.

Depends how "Lock down" they have made it all.

I believe it's just the suspension of digital sales, logins and character creations, the client downloads should be on a different server to the world servers eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lod…2cf . I'm not able to try it though as I am still waiting for my physical copy and you need the registration code to proceed to download the game. But jesusluvsyooh is still able to get this offer, download the launcher and just use the code in the physical copy for when everything is running normally, launcher can be found here finalfantasyxiv.com/pla…na/

Amazon have withdrawn it from sale too (physical copy!)
