They haven't commented on it, as far as I know anyway, but considering SE's "vision" of people playing both games, it should not be out of the question for SE to make a package deal where maybe you get a reduced price for XI if you pay for both games. Something like SOE has. That is of course pure speculation.
People think SE is retarded when it comes to game design and etc..but they aren't dumb enough to shoot themselves in the foot offering FFXI and FFXIV for one price.
This is why:
FFXI is still their main source of income, why not keep FFXI where it is because a lot of people didn't get into alpha and it's a good indication a lot won't get into FFXIV's beta either and the die hard people will still play FFXI so it's still going to be a great source of income for them.
FFXIV will be hit or miss but it's also a new game which means new fees and new chance of becoming their main source of income while FFXI will be on the back end. Offering both games for one price is pretty much shooting themselves.
Reduced pricing may not happen since honestly, $12.95 is still cheap and even if they reduce it people are still paying $17+ for their accounts to begin with. So it would be in their best interest to have people pay $12.95 for FFXI and however much for FFXIV separately, that's a better business move, especially with all that's planned for FFXI this year it will still be lively.
