The problem is that most of the people asking the questions are just reporters so they aren't to ask the kind of questions we would.

Kyansaroo, they already said earlier the FFXI and FFXIV communites will be seperate, meaning no character transfers.


Yea, but I'd rather it said point blank rather than speculation based off a different question. I agree with you that it's highly unlikely, but we're gonna go until release with the same question being asked daily on the forums unless it's specifically addressed.

Still a better question than spanish localization... geesh.

God, who is asking the stupid questions? Spanish localization? What will be improved? How about asking if there will be a Job/SubJob system... Or about character xfers? Ugh...


Seriously...but I bet they are asking questions they know will be answered.

Q: Why did you decide to make a new game rather than continue to evolve FFXI?

A: It all comes down to, originally, FFXI was designed for the PS2. It then moved to PC and Xbox 360. A lot of people have asked for a port to the PS3. With an MMORPG of this size, you have to develop new content. Porting to a new technology would take a lot of effort. Instead, we decided to use that time to make something new.


Surprised they didn't just go "PS2 Limitations lolololol" >_>

Q: Is that the quality you're aiming for? The scene with the Galka fighting, is that what you're aiming for?

A: Yes, that is the part that was running in-engine.

Holy crap.

"We will expand the job system to make it fairly different from the one in FFXI."

Interesting...
#66 Jun 03 2009 at 11:23 AM Rating: Excellent
The problem with only letting 75 people into the press conference, and then trying to live blog said press conference is that you ultimately end up with a negative amount of time on your hands to do anything other than type. Negative in the sense that we're time traveling to do this, but you won't know that.

Andrew will try to get a question in, but there's a lot of people and only one man with only three arms and one time traveling machine!

Oh thank god... someone asked.

Q: Will FFXI characters be portable to XIV in any way?

A: The game is completely different. There will not be any XI character transfers to XIV. However, the character design is familiar and XI players will be able to create a similar character.

One thing it impressed me the most in the Q & A session that the developers are clearly aware of need to diversify to appeal different player tastes and habits. Even that Galka fighting scene is amazing, what really matter will be the game play. I am looking forward how they are going to implement game engine for 30 min play to play all the day long.

I think that was a really good Q&A. Sad they didn't talk about the battle system when asked, but I'll get over that lol. We got some really nice tidbits of info regardless, and now I really can't wait for 2010 and this game's release.
