Wouldn't it have been great if they made an edition with an efficient install on both PC and 360? I own the PC one, OMG that install and update was the worst thing ever, the 360 beta install was the same too.

I've heard a lot of rumoring that FF14 would be a MMO like this one. I thought it was pretty good too, but no MMO ever kept me interested anywhere near as long as EQ1.

This has actually spurred me to drop WoW and start playing FF11 again, how long it will last I can not say.

I haven't played it since the new expansion came out.

FF11 is one of those game (much like WoW) that will always pull me back because I have so much fun playing them, but I agree it is time for a next gen effort.

Everytime SE are asked they say its still in development but I sometimes wonder.

I very much doubt the next MMO will be a FF title, rumor suggest it is World of Mana, but who knows, hopefully SE will show something of their next MMO at TGS this year.

I would of considered replaying this if it came to the PS3 but I'm not going to run it on my PC again. It's not worth the trouble of clearing free space and dealing with occasional slow time and disconnection.

Why? WOW is still reeling in the dough.. but Squaresoft could hit it big with another MMORPG. I'd rather see Blizz and company work on getting SC2 and Diablo 3 out the door before they even consider making another MMORPG.

Do people even play FFXI anymore. It's been around for like half a decade. This is almost like trying to resurrect Ultima Online isn't it?

People still play Ultima Online, mostly on free shards, but I believe there are still subscribers on EA's servers even. EA is trying to resurrect it too, they're getting Mythic to develop a brand new client for UO (Kingdom Reborn). It's a load of shit really, it's EA's biggest investment ever into UO which is quite sad, since it's one of the most important and best designed MMORPG's ever made.

And no, it's not quite like that, UO is more than a decade old (1997), and here in the US FFXI isn't even five yet on the PC and just turned four on the Playstation. In Europe the game isn't even four...

Blizzard has bigger competition to worry about coming out this year, especially a certain game called Warhammer. Although honestly, I think Warhammer looks and plays too much like WoW.

What's up?
  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (8 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (8 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (8 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think it'll be down to next gen engines making use of it where applicable. So, basically, if a game allows it, hardware permitting, it'll be used. (8 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Yeah, that's the thing, isn't it? PC's are a bit too much of an open platform hardware wise for it to be standard implementation. (8 Hours ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot @MrWhite: How long until we see that kind of thing in PCs do you think? I guess consoles are more future proof than a current PC in that regard. (8 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite new api's that talk to gpu and ssd's are the exciting thing there. That'll be present in both console and PC, eventually. (10 Hours ago)
