And for this reason, if this information is correct, I won't be playing FFXIV now. I refuse to be a second class citizen like the PS2 players were at launch for FFXI.
Don't be so elitist. Playing a game as large in scope in as FFXI on a PS2 is incredible. The exact same thing can be said about playing FFXIV on a PS3.
We're going to play a MMO on a console, and from the gameplay videos running on a PS3, it looks stellar. We're lucky SE aren't like other MMO devs - they at least support consoles... Edited, Jun 30th 2010 2:38pm by Sharwyn
This isn't an "elitist" attitude. This is a ****** off 25 year loyal customer attitude.
There's nothing that could have happened in 2 weeks that could have made a 6 month difference in release dates. If there was a problem with the PC to PS3 porting process, they've known about it for some time. It's very poor customer relations on their part not to tell us of a possible delay as soon as they knew about one instead of perpetuating the "Everything is peachy, they'll all release together" line of BS they've been feeding us for a year.
I don't care if you think of it as elitist, or butthurt, or whatever other internet geekspeak you wanna call it, if this gets confirmed and comes out of the mouth of an actual SE employee, they'll lose a customer. Not just for FFXIV but for FFXI too.
I know what you're thinking; my money means nothing to SE and you're probably right, but I refuse to give my money to a company that craps on the loyal customer as badly as SE does.
If you were being treated like this at Walmart or Best Buy you wouldn't stand for it, you'd go somewhere else. Why should SE be treated any different.
