found this in the cloud.
I understand the majority of the people that got in did not
have the minimum requirements needed to participate.
I'd really like to know what this "majority" percentage is, sounds like you're just spewing bs to me.
My comment was based upon where I first saw that pic posted. Many people were complaining that they did not meet the system requirements. Which is exactly
what happens when offer "Scouts honor" checkboxes in beta applications. People lie.
Despite that, are you saying that the majority
of people with PCs have GeForce 8800 (Which hit the market less than 3 years ago) or better specifications?
Many of the people in my LS use their old Dell laptops
to play FFXI (Raises hand), why drop a grand on a new rig when that works? So, no, I do not find it surprising that many people are finding the rumored system specifications as a significant obstacle when considering the move to FFXIV. Luckily, the PS3 will solve that problem for those that do not want to setup a payment plan with Newegg.com, but the fact remains. If you are dedicated FFXI player or even just a MMO player (Where system specifications tend to be lower), you might find yourself having to spend some cash, no?
