For those considering FF XIV Online, the physical disc version with a realm reborn and heavensword is $14.99 on Amazon currently
There are physical copies, but yeah it's hard to track them down nowadays.
EDIT: I get downvoted for stating the truth. Makes sense.
I first want to note that Heavensward is an expansion pack, and you'll need the base game (A Realm Reborn) in order to play it. There is a bundle available, but it does not include the collector's edition of either game.
You must purchase the game for each platform you want to play on because you must register each version with your game account. Once you've registered the version, you can use the same character(s) across all registered platforms.
However, you can only play the content that is registered to the platform you're playing on. So, if you have the base game and expansion on PS4, but only have the base game on PC, you won't be able to access the expansion pack content on PC. It becomes even more problematic when you log out in an Heavensward area on one platform, because you won't be able to log into your character on a platform that does not have HW registered to your account.
Also, things like macros and settings do not carryover between clients. All that means is that if you customize your settings, you'll have to do it again for each version you play on. There is a feature to migrate settings between the PS3 and PS4 versions, though.
It's worth noting that the NA Playstation Store has the base game for PS4 on sale for $10 and the Collector's Edition for $20. Heavensward is not included, but this will get you started for pretty cheap to see if you like it. You can't get into Heavensward content until you complete the main story quests, which require you to be level 50, so you have some time before you need to worry about that.
Also, if you get the standard edition now, SE sells a "digital upgrade" for $60, which will net you all the extra bonuses of the collector's edition for both ARR and HW. You need only one version of the collector's edition per game to get the goodies, which are all just vanity items.
Hope this helps.
It's actually not on sale anymore. You could get the game + heavensward for $20 in the black friday sale.
It's just $30 because it's a physical copy and they want to get rid of stock. It's also $30 for PC physical for example but $60 digital.
The same bundle costs $26 at amazon btw. I bought it at that price like a month ago so it should stick around til the end of the month.
For PC: To start playing you need just A Realm Reborn, which will grant you all content from 1-50 including the 2 years of patch content before Heavensward released. The only thing you will be missing out on is creating an Au Ra character that you can start the game as from level 1.
Then you need Heavensward, which grants access to the 50-60 content, with the new land (6 zones), 3 new jobs and the 2 years of Heavensward patch content. It also lets you either make an Au Ra character, or change your character's race to an Au Ra.
There is also a bundle where you may buy both the base game and the expansion together, but there is no bundle with Collector's Edition goodies.
You will need both collector's editions if you want all the digital goodies, or you can buy upgrades to both editions in order to get them, whenever you choose to.
On Steam it looks exactly the same. The only downside is that you are bound to buy everything on Steam and the box edition codes will not work with Steam. This makes it hard if you wish to have the physical collector's editions as their codes will not work with the Steam version and you would need to buy the collector's box and the Steam upgrade for Stormblood, for example.
It's the same as on PC, except the digital PSN codes and the box editions codes can be mixed and matched without issues.

Alright I am very new to the game and have a few questions about the steam vs amazon way of buying it.
So first, I downloaded the demo from steam, and the launcher through there as well and also think I made an account through there.
After that, I played a bit enjoyed the game and decided to buy it through amazon. this is the specific one I bought However, when I try and transfer my account it says that "The code I entered cannot be used with a steam free trial account" and asks me to purchase a copy of the game.
My primary confusion is do I have to buy another thing or make a new account? I do not know what steps to take from here unfortunately
I also was unable to locate one on the psn us store. It looks like it's only 20 for base game and 20 for xpack separate buys.. So $40. If your okay with disk amz wins for cheaper and bundle: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UO4NKA4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_G8vsybQG0Y8SY
You haven't mentioned region so I'm assuming NA region:
Playstation Store digital version
Amazon.com physical version
Those bundles contain the base game and Heavensward expansion. That's all you need for now as both versions come with a free month subscriptions :)
But they did. They now just have a "starter edition" that doesn't include HW since SB became available to buy but the default base game boxes include it now.
They probably just also rolled it into SB for ease of upgrading.
I think it's this.
at minimum you need to buy the ps4 version of XIV: A Realm Reborn and register your account with SE and on the Mogstation which is where your XIV account will be managed. You may also consider buying the combined version of A Realm Reborn and the expansion Heavensward (http://www.amazon.com/Final-Fantasy-XIV-Online-playstation-4/dp/B00UO4NKA4/ref=sr_1_3?s=videogames&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1459194964&amp;sr=1-3&amp;keywords=final+fantasy+xiv)
HW is the only expansion to consider, other updates you may see being talked about are one of the major patches the game receives ever 3-4 months. Just buying the base game (ARR) allows you to get to level 50 and experience all content released PRIOR to HW. you MUST have HW to level past 50 or access Ishgard and the three jobs Machinist, Dark Knight and Astrologian as well as select the Au Ra race.
You need fresh codes, also there is a bundle called "FFXIV online"
If you're in the US then the Amazon sale for ARR is here. They also have a combo pack for sale as a boxed edition here for a combined $30 for both the game and the expansion, which is a pretty solid savings. Unfortunately at the time of my posting it's out of stock. You could buy it to lock in the price if you have some trial time left and are willing to spend the time to save the money.
You should be able to log into the mogstation here with your existing account on the trial and add the key from your purchase. That'll activate your current account and give you 30 days of game time. However it'll also cut off any trial time you have left.
amazon has a bundle callled ffxiv online that is the base+expasnion for $30 https://www.amazon.com/Final-Fantasy-XIV-Online-playstation-4/dp/B00UO4NKA4/ref=sr_1_1_twi_gam_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1474584766&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=ffxiv%2Bonline&amp;th=1
If I buy the physical version of this game, as in like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UO4NKA4/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&amp;me=
If I were to buy it used, should I be worried about everything being "redeemed," or is it all on the disc?
A Realm Reborn is the base game (whch also includes 30 free days, forgot to mention that). There's only one expansion so far: Heavensward (with a new one called Stormblood that's coming out in June).
Just on Amazon, I'm seeing the bundle for $23.98 for PS4 when the two separate are $28.38 and $13.77 (though normally it's $40 and $20).
Really? Do you honestly think that's how it should work and make sense?
So you're telling me ONE mount that is priced at $30 is worth the same as the ENTIRE GAME:
How exactly is it bizarre to be mad about that?
