Square Enix has announced that there will be a discount for the Final Fantasy XIV subscription till the patch 2.0 arrives. They’ve priced it at $9.99 and it will be $15 once the patch 2.0 is out. The team has been hard at work in fixing most of the issues plaguing the game, but it remains to be seen how players receive this.
The Playstation 3 version will no doubt help them.
The recurring billing will be effective starting January 6th, 2012.
In order to ensure that no one is charged without prior consent, we have decided to suspend all FINAL FANTASY XIV service accounts on January 5th, 2012. If you wish to continue playing FINAL FANTASY XIV, we ask that you renew and set up your payment method options starting December 16th, 2011.
