Due to the PS5’s price hike, many Japanese gamers have taken to asking Square Enix to bring Final Fantasy 16 to Steam.
Final Fantasy 16 became trending among Japanese Twitter users following Sony’s announcement of the PS5 price hike . The reason? Many ask that it be brought immediately to PC, in particular to Steam , so that they are not forced to buy the console.
As you know, Sony has announced a price increase for PS5 that is valid almost all over the world. From September 15, a PS5 Standard will cost 60,478 yen in Japan, up from 49,980 yen previously. The digital model will cost 49,478 yen, when it previously cost 39,980 yen. This is an increase of 20%, higher than that practiced in our part, where it is about 10%.
After the news, many Final Fantasy 16 fans complained that the increase will keep them away from the console, which they don’t consider more convenient. Of course they don’t want to give up playing the new chapter of the saga, so they hope it will arrive on PC right away. Many explicitly ask for it to be published on Steam, but there are also those who plead the cause of the Epic Games Store, where some Final Fantasy and other Square Enix games, such as Kingdom Hearts , have been published in the past in an exclusive time frame.
Some even hope there is a PS4 port, but the PC version remains the most requested.
In fact, in Japan, the increase in PS5 is very marked and can make a difference. Despite playing at home, Sony was already having more than a few difficulties with its new console, due to the shortage of stocks, but now others could take over, given that part of the Japanese user feels somehow abused for having suffered one. of the highest rises in the world.
