Square unveils FFXIV currency

Your money is no good here.

Square Enix has announced details of the new in-game currency launching with its forthcoming MMO, Final Fantasy XIV Online.

Before you can offload your hard-earned cash on subscriptions and security tokens you'll need to convert your currency of choice into Crysta, although there are other options to pay for your subscription.

Demonstrating complete disregard for currency conversion rates, 100 Crysta will set you back £1 or €1, depending on your location.

You can buy Crysta in blocks of 500, 1000, 2000, 3000, 5000 or 10,000. There will be a cap on the amount of Crysta one player can hold in their account at a time.

Eurogamer's Rob Fahey went hands-on with the game last month and insisted it was "something radically different".

Find out for yourselves when the game launches for PC on 30th September and PlayStation 3 in March 2011.
