FF14GILHUB Goal is to Better FFXIV Gil Service,Cheaper Final Fantasy XIV Gil!

Unable to link FFXIV Online PS4 digital download to existing service account

I recently purchased the FFXIV Online bundle for PS4. I have an existing Square Enix account, and an active service account for FFXIV: A Realm Reborn for Windows PC. When the bundle became available today at 9:00PM PST, I attempted to follow the steps on screen on my PS4, but I received an error message stating "No valid service account is available to play FINAL FANTASY XIV. In order to play FINAL FANTASY XIV, you must first purchase the digital download from the PlayStation Store or register a product code." I have purchased it from the store, and it is fully downloaded and installed, so either that error message is misleading, or something else is amiss. The way I understand it, if I were to create another service account to get past this message on PS4, I would be unable to use my character associated with my existing service account, which has been active since before A Realm Reborn. Obviously, because of the commitment I have to this character, that isn't an option for me. I was also led to believe through several sources that I would be able to play the same character on PC as well as PS4. I love this game on PC, and I was hoping to enjoy it on the PS4 as well, so please let me know if I can take any steps, or if you need any additional information to resolve this issue.

 

Few problems with this theory...

1 - When you run the game, why the hell would it ask me if I have an account or if I want to make a new one?

2 - You cannot buy ARR from Playstation Network.

3 - You cannot buy Heavensward from Playstation Network.

4 - And now, you cannot even buy this "Final Fantasy Online XIV" (both ARR/HW) from Playstation Network.

 

If it's true that this version of the game is only for new accounts, then I want to see where it states that in the product description because that's pretty stupid if that's the case and would be a dumb move on SE's part.0

 

It may also just be miscommunication between Square Enix and PSN, because although the bundle became available at 9pm PDT, there was scheduled maintenance between 10pm and 2 am PDT. Theoretically, this means that there was an hour of play time for non early access members if they got this bundle. However, I don't think even PC players with Heavensward (non early access) would have been able to play during that time, though someone correct me if I'm wrong. I'm going to wait before creating a new service account (and losing all of my progress on my existing one), to see if this is the issue. Although it would be really helpful for a Square Enix rep to chime in to let us know for sure.
