Unlike Final Fantasy XIII, the next game is the series won’t be running in full HD resolution on the PlayStation 3. Hiromichi Tanaka, producer of Final Fantasy XIV, has confirmed that the game will indeed be caught running at 1080p, but only on the PC providing you have a powerful enough graphics card.
Tanaka says the PlayStation 3 version of the title will be locked at 720p. “The PS3 version will be running in 720p in order to ensure performance remains high quality,” he explained, “but the PC version can go up to 1080p if your machine is powerful enough as you pointed out. We also support multiple displays, so players can use two or three displays to show that game.”
