Could it be that the reason the PS3 version got delayed is to have a time to work on the 360 version and have a simultaneous release. I know they've said there are plans for it but they also never tell the whole story. If this is true then this is utter crap. I don't understand why there were talks of PS3 beta coming up but then out of no where they delay it?

Thoughts?

Very unlikely. The delay is probably due to some sony bureaucratic red tape that SE doesn't want to deal with or a technical problem they weren't expecting.

They did tell the whole story. The issue with the 360 version is due to Microsoft's constraints with LIVE and a disagreement with SE. They wont lift the restrictions that SE feel are unfair and so SE cannot release the game until they agree on set standards. If they can reach an agreement, we will see a 360 version of XIV. If they cannot, we wont.

I very much doubt they are delaying the PS3 version due to waiting for a simultaneous release with the 360. There is no logical reason or any advantage in doing so.

Yeah I would agree very unlikely, took forever for them to put it on 360 for ffxi and even then it totally wasn't worth it because of the whole linking content id to your live account.

Not likely at all. First of all I severely doubt Sony would allow anything like this and secondly a 360 version of this game is probably not going to happen.

With XI you didn't need a gold account on XBL to play. Your account could revert to silver and you could still log in to POL and play XI. Microsoft wants to make it so to play XIV you would still need to retain a gold account. SE does not think this is fair and will not port the game to 360 unless M$ compromises which is not likely.
