It just seems like the ‘core’ Final Fantasy games should be single player experiences. Also, I’m a bit curious as to whether all the people that play FFXI and have done so much, gathered so much, achieved so much would just leave it all behind to start over again on XIV. xD[/quote]
You know, that’s an excellent point.
I gave up on XI early last year just because I felt like I had accomplished all I wanted to in the game, and I did accomplish a lot of the endgame stuff so I was satisfied. I’m looking forward to a new experience!
I did check the large XI forums though and so far the news is being greeted with a great deal of enthusiasm. People are talking about buying 1 or 2 new PS3s to get their hands on this game! The XI community has been incredibly loyal to Square though and now I think pretty much most are ready to move on, to a new Square offering. How much of the XI base will make the migration certainly remains to be seen.
I am quite disappointed that it’s exclusive to PS3 though, I don’t want to buy a new system just for it, but I likely might, who knows lol. I do think it’ll eventually come to 360, given Xbox’s huge online community. How long before that happens after the PS3 launch though who knows. I hope by the time it’s near release next year Microsoft will do a little convincing…
I have almost no interest in games lately but I will most likely be buying XIII and XIV next year when they launch. Can’t wait.[/quote]
True enough. I still feel that the MMO FF’s should not be part of the core series. I think this comment on Kotaku sums up a lot of peoples’ feelings on this:
Don’t they have like 20 million games already in development?
Oh…F**K ANOTHER ONLINE-INSTALLMENT
Do they really need to put them IN THE MAIN SERIES?
Seriously, you can put EVERYTHING in it’s own spinoff, BUT the type of game that SHOULD have it’s own spinoff"
