Just a minor quibble, but my understaning is that Square-Enix fully intends simultaneous release of FFXIV on PC and PS3.

I have the same headset as bill I think.  It like it :)  Also FFXIV had several posts on thier site that they always intended to have cross platform with PC and PS3.  PS3 version never got to launch since the PC version wasn't upto snuff.  I'm sure that they still plan on releasing it for PS3 as well, or they wasted alot of money on the development of the PS3 version, which If I remember correctly was going to launch like 3 months after the PC version, but that got scrapped.

 

One of the best things about FFXI was the cross platform,  It opened up the potential playerbase, and like WoW has proved, the more you open up your potential playerbase the better your game can do.  imho, One of the biggest things holding back newer MMOs is that you had to go out and buy a $1000 in the last year to play them.  This severly limits your potential.

 

Now for Dota in WoW.  I really never liked the original Dota.  I played it alot, but I was so horrible at it, much like any PvP lol.  It's like Battlefield 3 and other FPS games, I totally stink at them, but they're still fun for some reason, fear my 0-36 games! lol

Great show look forward to hearing all the chat next time :P

 

I have been a PC gamer most of my life and rarely play console games. I enjoy it better on a PC. So they can do whatever they want with console games, but if they make them console only they wont get my money.

 

Nothing at this point would bring me back to play WoW regularly. They have watered down too much of what made us Vanilla Players play it. At this point with WoW fail and D3 debocle I won't be supporting Blizzard much at all.

 

I hope as FFXIV gets closer to launch that I might see some love from the MMORPG.com crew and this show. I am still up in the air as to how the new changes will do, but I have been a Final Fantasy fan for a long time and FFXI was one of my first serious MMOs for years and would love to see it reviewed and talked about more.

If it wins me over (and I honestly hope it does) I'm a big enough guy to admit when I'm wrong. FFXI was a great game and it didn'' try to be like other MMOs. I hope ARR can keep a unique identity and not be "just another high fantasy MMO." Wed Jan 09 2013 7:30PM Report
