FFXI's original trailer had something about logging in to the game from an arcade machine with a memory card
Are you sure you're not talking about F-Zero AX
? I've never heard any of that when looking up infor for XI back in 2001-2002.
No I remmeber the video he was talking about. It wasn't really a video about FFXI it was more a promo for "Play Online" it had 3 people from all over the world. liek some teen age guy in japan, a teen girl at home in america and some older dude. The girl logs into the game and messages he friends (the two guys) and they get the text via cell phone or instant message. it reads "Lets go!" or something like that.
the kid logs into the game and the guy logs into the game like at an arcade or something. and they show up next to her ingame.
To bad Play Online didn;t live up to it's full potential. I bet we'll see it resurface again around ffXIV launch but not as a game portal but a web based portal somethign similar to LS community beta.
EDIT: Found the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_42la3foiCc
I was about the types of people but was close. oh well it's been liek 7or 8 years since i last saw the video.
Enjoy it's pretty funny.
teen boy:"Hey man we're gonna form a party lets go"
cool teen: "No!....Ellie needs me."
