Security Token Release Date!

LOS ANGELES (March 24, 2009) – Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in North America, today announced the upcoming launch of the Square Enix Account System and Square Enix Security Token in Japan, North America and Europe on April 7, 2009 PDT. Offering additional account safeguards to players of FINAL FANTASY® XI, these new initiatives provide for a higher level of account security. The new system will utilize the Square Enix Security Token, which will be available to purchase for $9.99 via the PlayOnline® Viewer.

Creating a Square Enix Account is free and can be done by anyone via the official Square Enix website. With this new system in place beginning April 7, 2009 PDT, Square Enix Accounts will be compatible with FINAL FANTASY XI and PlayOnline, as well as future online services.

After registering a Square Enix Account and purchasing the Square Enix Security Token, players can then assign the token to their PlayOnline ID(s). Using the token will generate a one-time password every 30 seconds for the account. Implementation of these new features is an extension of Square Enix’s commitment to continuous service for our customers.

Additionally, players who purchase a security token will also receive the brand new in-game bonus, the “Mog Satchel.” The “Mog Satchel” provides additional inventory space and benefits all characters on the PlayOnline account(s). The space provided by the “Mog Satchel” is equal to the character’s Gobbiebag capacity and can expand along with it. In order to utilize the bonus, it will be necessary for the customer’s PlayOnline ID to be linked to a Square Enix Account.

Am I getting one? Hell yeah. Already planned on it when it was initially announced! The Mog Satchel is even more of an incentive, and totally worth the few extra bucks it costs over the WoW Security Token. Portable Mog Space? YES, PLEASE!

edit: Yes, that emphasis is mine. Just annoyed as hell people can’t read something so simple….

  1. I had a lot of space to begin with due to streamlining and organization…I wonder what I would do with a satchel. @_@; I guess a bag for all the farming/crafting I do? Or have another 75′ set of gear preloaded to go and keep my monk gear permanently on my main bag? Seems to be quite the addition…although people have still found ways to complain about it somehow.

    <.<; The complainers will always be there. What gets me /facepalming are the idiots who ask dumb questions like "do I have put the password every 30 seconds!? Wouldn't that be a pain in Dynamis?" Yeah. Those.

    She’s right, y’know. :P I’ve already had a few people gripe to me in /tells about how “SE is doing RMT” and “We won’t be able to auto-login anymore”.

    Yet they whine more about not visiting certain sites to avoid being hacked.
