Final Fantasy XIV launched around 15 hours ago in China, with Shanda Games as publisher. The game currently has over 30 servers (34 at launch), with several added over the course of the day. Character creation is closed for some servers as well, making the launch an initial success.
After the initial promo period (1 month from launch), 1 hour of game time will cost 0.60 CNY. This adds up to 432 CNY (70.16 USD) each month, if the game is played 24 hours each day. The price is actually quite acceptable since most usually play around 6 hours, which is around 17.54 USD monthly.
