One of Square's main focuses with FFXIV seems to be letting players of FFXI port their character models over to FFXIV. However, FFXIV is only available for two of the three systems that FFXI is for. Surely Square wouldn't exclude all of the current FFXI 360 players out of the opportunity to play their new game and take advantage of that feature without having to go buy a new system. Plenty of people are in your shoes, myself included. I think things well work out in our favor.

I speak as a player who ONLY owns a 360 right now.

I would rather go buy a Ps3 than have FFXIV released on 360.

Nothing to do with graphics, let me tell you why:

I played FFXI from its NA release on the ps2, when it came out on the 360 I was overjoyed, improved graphics and I could still play it on my console (in HD!) should I so choose ^^!

But I tried to cancel my gold membership since my 360 broke, and about 6 months later bought a brand new 360 elite, loaded up FFXI online, and discovered... I CAN'T PLAY. Regardless of paying for Xbox live, and paying for my FFXI account, buying a BRAND NEW XBOX when my OLD ONE BROKE.

Apparently the geniuses at microsoft could no longer recover my original gamertag. And because they couldn't recover my gamertag I can't play FFXI on my 360. Because you can only use ONE gamertag with ONE FFXI account.

It is a ****** system, and I will never play a MMO on a 360 again, the 2 systems simply don't work together.

No matter how many times my old *** PS2 broke, I never had to simply quit the game or start a brand new account because the console company messed up.

Please learn from my 360 mistake, and don't buy any MMOs for the 360.

But I totally encourage buying other games for it, I could make a new gamertag and play any game other than FFXI. And I still play them, just won't be buying any of their MMO offerings ever again.

I'm not the 360's biggest fan, but I really hope it releases for the 360, and here's why:

More players = more money
More money = more support
More support = faster updates, more content, and Game Gods willing more quality
And all that crap I just said = Happy us.

So here's to not just a 360 version, but a mac one as well.

Plus, if there are more options to play it on, in 5 years, everyone else can gripe about PS3's limitations hampering expansion of FFIV.

Yeah, wouldn't want to miss out on that this time around.

Papajay I honestly doubt that the 360 can handle ffxiv cuz it's hardware architecture just won't handle it. I play ffxi on both my ps3 and my elite 360 (my ps3 much more often) and the freezes on the 360 can be very horrible. Hearing the bloody machine whirring loudly in trying to keep pace with just ffxi is bad enough.

That said, when you say "more players" you gotta understand that the ps3 isn't doing as badly as many think (about 23 million units sold against 360's 30 million) and SE knows they can make up for the 360's population by catering to the PC clients worldwide. What might happen in the future is that Microsoft's next console... (rumor says maybe it's out in 2012?)... should be able to handle ffxiv and that's when they'll be able to get on board.

But until then, I'd humbly say start saving for that "160 GB to 200 GB PS3 FFXIV bundle" or an upgraded PC.
This is my future FFXIV Character and this is his least that's the tentative plan. Yep. (Concept Art of Rasler by the legendary Akihiko Yoshida) I asked for the Qiqirn to be added in FFXIV since October 2009 and we now have them! Yessss!
