Want to play the Final Fantasy XV demo? It won’t be easy to get a hold of it. Meanwhile, Facebook is considering a dislike button and Apple starts accepting PayPal.
The Final Fantasy RPG series need no introduction, but it is true that most of us would rather play a demo before we cash out for a full game. Square Enix has been working hard with Final Fantasy XV, though, and it doesn’t seem like they want to let the demo go easily.
Square Enix has just revealed that getting a Final Fantasy XV demo won’t be an easy feat. In fact, there is only one way to get it is by purchasing a copy of Final Fantasy Type-0, which is set to launch on PS4 and Xbox One this coming March.
Square Enix is very clear on this matter – this will be the only way to get the demo. The demo will not be released in any other form. If that wasn’t enough bad news, Square Enix goes on to add that not every Type-0 customer will get it. This demo will only be available for the “Day One” edition.
Opinion: This is a pretty strict system, but I guess it’s also a good way to do business. Square Enix knows many of us Final Fantasy fans are waiting eagerly for the new title. I just may buy Type-0 just to play the demo.
The idea of a dislike button has been rolling around the internet for quite some time. It would just make sense, right? You can always “like” something, but what happens when you don’t actually like something? Simply do nothing? Maybe you could use the comments to express yourself.
A main issue in such a button is that it would create negativity in the social network. Mark Zuckerberg states they want to allow us to express feelings other than “liking” something, but they want it to be a force for good, not bad. Zuckerberg wants to make sure he is building a safe community, not one of conflict.
Opinion: It is true that a “dislike” button would create a certain level of negativity, as it does in services like YouTube. If implemented well, though, it can be a powerful tool. What types of sentiments would you like to have as a button?
Those looking for a convenient way to purchase your next Apple devices may be in for a treat. Apple has just started supporting PayPal payments on their online Apple Store, allowing users to take advantage of the most popular internet bank.
The option will be there upon checkout, as well as an advert about PayPal’s financing services.
Opinion: I happen to use PayPal often, and I don’t always feel like waiting days before the money transfers to my bank account. This is why I love seeing PayPal becoming a payment option in more and more establishments. It’s also a good way to keep your cash organized, especially if you use a bunch of cards.
