FFXIV for 360 PetitionFollow

#1 Aug 20 2009 at 9:49 AM Rating: Default
Is there a petition somewhere that I could sign to bring this to the 360?

Doesn't make sense to include the console with the larger marketshare for an mmo, specially when the previous game (ffxi) was released on it.

If I remember correctly, SE and Microsoft are already discussing this but have yet to reach a conclusion.

Petitions don't matter when Tanaka himself said he wants to but doesn't want to deal with the Xbox Live situation atm.

Not that I know of. I'm sure eventually it will make it's way over to the 360. The major challenge will be the system requirements. The developers seem keen on making the game completely immersive from both a graphics and data standpoint. That may be a challenge on the hardware limitations of the 360. That being said, more developers crossplatform simply to get to a broader user base. If the pros outweight the cons, we'll see something move to the 360. At this point, it's a little too early in development to know though.

Something else a little more relevant to your question though. Petitions don't work ;) lol.

I hate to say it, nothing against 360, but adding 360 would make SE hold back on a lot of stuff due to limitations yet they'll get more players if they do. They might eventually make a 360 version though; I'm having ambivalent feelings towards this.

From what i've heard from programmers i know the real world difference in 360 and ps3 is not there. GPU is stronger on 360, cpu stronger on ps3, but more difficult to program for. That is why we still see some games that look better on the 360. I just was hoping for a petition so they can see the amount of people that would want it, it would be a shame for someone who only has a 360, and been playing ffxi, not to be able to play the successor.

you could... i don't know... buy a ps3? its 300 bucks. Unless you are a fanboy, or someone unable to save 300 bucks over the course of a year, then I'd understand.

still not valid, game comes out in a year. If you are a 360 fanboy admit it and it's all good. I'm a PS3 fanboy myself ( 3 PS3s 2 PSPs and about to get 1 more ps3 and 2 more psps)

and how are games cheaper?

Oh god it's starting. Rofl

Anyway, to be technical, it being on the PS3 is holding back a lot also.

My friend not everyone is ******** out money in times like these. So its valid that one person can't afford what you can. It has nothing to do with being a fan or not, it has to do with not having the money.

its 300 bucks (or less if used) over the course of a year. He already spends money on games and on FFXI, he could save a little. You know saving? the thing people do to get things they want? I do it when I don't have money if there is something I want. Also he doesn't have to play it when it just comes out, he could save some more time.

I don't think there is a good enough argument against saving money.

I have to be smart about purchases is all. I can't afford to get all the consoles and handhelds, the extra money i'm saving, that goes to bills and saving upcoming family expenses. All I was wanting was more info on ffxiv for xbox 360, i did find this link, so that is hopeful if anyone else is wondering. Looks like it will be coming, just not at launch.

As has been stated, saving up $300 over an entire year, regardless of your financial situation, should not be all that challenging. I am personally, and several other people I know who plan on playing, are saving up money now to build a new computer when FFXIV finally comes out. By the time FFXIV comes out I should have enough money saved up to build a machine that is almost top of the line and capable of running the game at near full graphics.

It's just a matter of being able to be responsible and save a little bit at a time.

On another note, I'm hoping FFXIV doesn't drop for 360 right away after playing FFXI on it for a year. The overheats were absurd and killed 2 of my 360s, and I know I'm not the only one who had trouble with it.

My thoughts exactly!

Last thing I want right now is another PS2 situation thrown in the equation. What is currently happening with FFXIII is precisely why multi-platform titles tend to hinder the overall experience for everyone.

I will be sad to see some people gone that play on the 360. Some of my best friends will be left behind, but with the PS3 only $299 now, there is little excuse not to save $25 a month until next summer.

They are so close in performance it depends on how a game is programmed. If we follow the logic about holding mmo's back, then they shouldn't be released on consoles at all, but that would be silly to lock out that marketshare in a struggling gaming environment.

Because, sometimes, even saved money needs to go to something else.

What happens if, in a year, he breaks his leg and his insurance only covers X of the total. That 300 dollars may need to go to the hospital, not to a new gaming system.

There is nothing wrong in hoping for a release on a system you already own. For one thing, that is $300 less you'd "need" to spend. On the other hand, it makes the $125 you spent on the 360 more valuable (you'd be getting more use out of it).

Plus, we know it is coming out next year, but we don't know when. If it comes out in February, that is only 5 months. Say he is a college student AND works during the year, that means he would need to save 60 dollars a month to afford just the system in time. And, if he's a student, he may only be managing a few hours of work a week (be it work study, telemarketing, etc.) That 60 dollars could easily be a very high percentage of what his income actually is (and that isn't accounting for any other bills, like cell phones or food).

Furthermore, right in the middle of this 5 (or longer) month period falls Christmas. Maybe the holiday is a big deal in his family. Maybe he has close friends to buy gifts for. Maybe he'll need money for donations for a holiday party or something.

Suddenly, additional costs may be hard to budget.

Add in a family and this is even worse. If he has kids then their needs are likely going to come before his own. ****, a kid entering calculus may need a calculator, which can easily be $120. Maybe they want to start band and, with instruments, comes a payment plan. Maybe they want to start dancing. Etc.

Budgeting for a PS3 could either be easy or hard, depending on your situation. Who are you to judge which it should be for a perfect stranger? Furthermore, even if someone COULD budget for it, who are you to say they should? Maybe $300 is too steep a price for them, even if they have more than enough in their savings.

Plus, it isn't like the OP was complaining. He asked if anyone knew of a petition. You just came in like an *** and attacked him for it.

Actually, I'd say the opposite. If my laptop (which I paid $800 for last year) can play XIV on the lowest settings, I'd be lucky.

The console, on the other hand, is designed to be at full or near-full settings. I'd expect it'll take a while for the average PC user to surpass the PS3.

yeah this is true also. There must be something with Xbox live policies that is stopping SE from releasing FFXIV on the 360. But petitioning anything won't accomplish anything at all.

Also the game is 50% done, I'm pretty sure it won't release on march. You have time, PC or PS3 is the only way to play this game as of now. If you really want to play it you have to get either of those two options.

Or you can wish upon a shooting star...

This just shows you're an idiot as well as an ***.

Life isn't easy for everyone. Sometimes, we don't want to have to stress over something we are using to take our minds off the worldly problems. Just because your life is apparently devoid of money issues, doesn't mean everyone's is.

And it isn't like the scenario I put in is unlikely in any way. People get hurt everyday. I didn't suggest he develops pancreatic cancer. It could be something as simple as falling down the stairs, tripping, getting snipped by a car or bike or getting injured at your construction job.

How about you stop assuming you know the way other people's financial situations.

I'm buying a PS Slim. But, it took a lot of thought for me to decide to do so. And, I'm not doing it until I can cement my job situation for the school year. If that doesn't work out, or it isn't solid, I probably won't be able to save $300 by next June. I have bills to pay. I have family engagements. I have a niece or nephew on the way. I have a $22,000 tuition (plus books and other expenses). I'm not going to spend
$300 on ANY leisure equipment unless I'm reasonably sure I won't be seriously missing that cash. And that includes having much more in savings.

I'm happy you can afford 2 or more of $200-400 systems. I struggle to grab one, and I'm careful with my cash. People are different.

I THINK the problem is that Microsoft wants to require gold memborships to access FFXIV, and that would be on top of the monthly fee. The problem is that people WILL misplace their anger here. They'll blame SE for the fee they can't control, or judge them for charging them on top of it. But, if they drop that price, the other players will feel like they are "paying for" the 360 players.

And, while agree with your release estimates, I think it WILL be done before I expect it to. SE is being really smart with their testing from what their interviewer has said. They are doing area testing throughout, doing their best to test every system as it goes along. This'll hopefully let them catch bugs early that could send the whole project way back later.

I'm also hoping they follow the "Blizzard" system with release dates, though. I VASTLY prefer a game being released, complete, later rather than earlier with huge problems.

He CAN pay for used games, He CAN pay for his FFXI subscription. Playing FFXIV is NOT a necessity and he can go without it just as is FFXI and videogames for that matter. He chose this expensive hobby he has to deal with it. Saving money to buy a console is NOT bad advice. I may have come too hard on the thing but my statements weren't stupid.

When does your episode of Cribs come out? Srsly though 4 ps3s? I can't imagine a situation in which you'd need that many, it has like 4 good games and it doesn't break down anywhere near as often as a 360.

If XIV does make it to the 360 just imagine the headaches already caused by Besieged in XI.

Pre-emptive strike-I've had 2 360's, both failed and I'm about to pick up a third, I bought a ps3 just for MGS4 when it was 500 bucks and I'm pretty **** poor myself. If you want it enough you'll find a way to get it, maybe not day one while you save up but eventually.

Check out this link. If you read it basically says that MS Xbox Live policies are holding up them announcing a 360 version. Until MS changes their stance on online gaming it probably won't see any more MMOs.

We all know that it is MS fault, that holding up the game release on 360.

Why? Because of Xbox live policies, which is multiplaying = gold membership.

FF14 was create for PC, PS3 and 360. Of course , SE want to maximize their profit by releasing it on 360. However, MS would not open up their Xbox live "golden rules".

Personally I hope SE doesn't budge on this hold back either till Microsoft considers making these sort of games silver only. I never liked there charging policy for gold and somewhere on the line during the xbox lifecycle I had to ask myself why i'm paying for xbox live when the same games online on the ps3 for free.

Well, All the people that were at gamescom should be answering u guys I guess there all sleeping;;
It was stated that the current and almost finished build of the game itself couldnt be handled on any other system besides the PC and PS3 right now. (Even said the Ps3 was cutting it close)
But if we look at what they said at E3 about XIII coming to 360. The game was tuned down in a big way to make the 360 cut.
Im sure 360 will see it a few months later.
Even if they have to tone it down.
All they did was talk about how they need to expand there adds in the US and world wide releases.

So did you hear it from a friend of a friend? Did SE tell you in person? Or did you read a linkable webpage with that info?

I just read an Interview from SE devs stating only thing holding a 360 release is that fact that xboxlive requires gold membership for online play.

If it's your opinion that FFXIV PS3 will out-preform a FFXIV 360 version state so, not spread misinformation about why it's not being released.


FYI: I want FFXIV to come out on both. More people the more successful, more fun times for all.

And I own both consoles so in the end I'll be playing either way.

I myself Attend Gamescom with my colleagues. Excuse my english.
We were invited to attend the SE press release a day before it was open to all.
Before we were able to sit down a speach was giving.
In that speach they stated what we are playing on which was PC and PS3.
After the speach the SE team members that were there to help spoke to all that were playing.
And thats the answer they were telling all that asked.

If it comes to 360, it comes to 360. If it remains PC/PS3, it remains. Let's all stop the $$ bickering...some people just don't want to drop $300 on another console when they already own multiple consoles that has cost them enough. It's not "fanboism", it's personal preference.

But let's be frank, it all boils down to whether we want the game to succeed. More platforms = more users = more success & income for SE = more content & longer lifespan. Seriously...the "1337" need to stop being "1337" and support a more practical business model for success if you have any hope of the game not flopping...and I'm sure everyone here doesn't want FFXIV to flop.

There is no significant technical limitations keeping XIV from arriving on the 360. XIII going to the 360 and using the same engine being utilized for XIV should be enough to end those fanboy arguments. They may not look exactly the same, but I'd bet 10 Gil that it would be a comparable experience to the PS3 version. The devs are interested in bringing it as well, so "petitioning" them for a version is pretty moot as well, IMO.

MS allowed XI on the 360 and didn't require a paid subscription to XBox Live to play. It appears MS has decided not to extend that option for the new MMO, and until they do, you won't see a port. It's a silly stance from MS, but then again, they are desperately trying to keep Live pay to play against rising pressure from the gaming community to drop the online multiplayer portion of the Gold subscription to the Silver accounts. They already had to abandon the fees for the PC version of Live, and in time, they'll lose this battle too. Free online multiplayer is the industry standard for all other consoles, handhelds, and computers. Live is gonna go (IMHO) the way of America Online. Apparently, MS has decided any exception to its online multiplayer policies at this point will only further erode their current stance.

Considering Sony pretty much stated that the only console it would arrive on at launch, it pretty much means, there is roughly a 6 month~year long timed exclusivity.

You won't see it on 360 before then. And depending on how long MS are considering keeping 360 afloat, it may never make it at all.

Really, if you want to play the game, especially at launch, you're best off getting it for PC or PS3. Waiting around, and demanding something that at the very least, won't make it for 6 months after launch, is pretty... silly.

We don't really know if they had to limit XIII for a 360 version. Versus XIII is

announced to be exclusive to PS3, as of now. I'm interested in how they'll

utilize PS3's potential for that game; until its release, then we can compare

how XIII and Versus XIII (graphics, fight system, etc).

lol360 limitations



The amount of stupid coming out of some of the people on here is just too much. Just because not everyone has a rich daddy to buy them 20 PS3's, doesn't mean not everyone should not get to play.

That doesn't really make sense... You don't need a "rich daddy" to buy you a PS3, considering the only 360 model worth owning now is $299. Which is, as of the 18th of August, the price of the only for a PS3.

If someone wanted to play FFXIV, they currently have two choices, a PC or a PS3. Just because someone played FFXI, or owns a 360, doesn't automatically give them the right to play FFXIV.

Simply put, at this moment in time, everyone can play FFXIV, as long as they own one of the two systems that it is being released upon.

I don't know how live worked with FFXI but I would guess that you would get a 360 and still play online with other games so a subscription to live would still cost you $50(silver)-$100(gold) a year regardless. With FFXIV sure to be around $155.40 USD yearly; the same as FFXI ($12.95 x 12). You'd be paying more money on the 360 than you would be if you had played on the PS3. So if you are tight on money/trying to save money; you'd be better off cancelling live, and saving some money to get a ps3 instead.

xbox360 ps3
$205.40 vs $155.40 a year...

after 5 years
xbox360 ps3
$1027 vs $777

$250 bucks saved, and thats just with silver. Even if you weren't going to play FFXIV for 5 years, you'd still be paying that live subscription fee, because we all know... games these days don't really have that feelin like it used to where you could have replay value without going online, nowadays most games' replay value or even primary play value is just online with other people... obviously thats why you are interested in a MMO. With the ps3 and 360 both being priced at $300 now. I'd say in terms of being tight on money, getting a ps3 is the better choice. BUT UNLIKE YOU, who said you didn't have money to throw around, IF YOU DO HAVE MONEY then the which console is better war is still up in the air. If you are tight on money you'd go for a ps3, unless you are a fanboy.

But lol... if you did have money just build your own PC.
