Those currently playing on the PlayStation 3 version of Square Enix's rebooted Final Fantasy XIV MMO now have the chance to upgrade for free to the PlayStation 4 version.
While the actual game won't be released until April 15th in Australia for PlayStation 4, those jumping on the virtual upgrade will be given a three-day headstart, allowing access right this minute. This also includes those who pre-ordered the PlayStation 4 version itself.

Transfers are also not permitted between PC and console versions, though all platforms share the same servers.
