Ok, I see lots of post/topics of angry and frustrated PS3 owners. I think this would be a good place to vent and share how you feel, what your experiencing. Let it all out...I'm here for you.

A computer that is capable of playing FFXIV is cheap....a laptop I bought a few years ago for a few hundred can play FFXIV. Chances are, if your computer can't play it, should be time to upgrade anyway.

Nice, total eclipse of the heart reference. Keep venting people don't let your hatred for SE actions go unheard. I don't want to hear on the news, guy takes his life and others due to a MMO.

Cazon, judging by your smug tone, you have a PC that can play this. Since you asked, I'll be happy to tell you some things that **** me off:

1.) Delayed release date for PS3.
2.) Lack of reason for delay given by Square.
3.) Automated email responses from Square's support desk.
4.) PC users telling PS3 user to stop complaining.

Anyone who does not like to hear opinions that differ from their own probably should come up with am alternate passtime to visiting forums. Even so, mocking PS3 users does not seem helpful.

This.

Especially the part about PC users giving PS3 users a hard time. Although, I realize it's just because they can't completely understand. They know they get the game even earlier than they thought, and are so happy that empathy hasn't registered yet.

When I say they I do NOT mean all PC users. Some have tried very successfully to understand, sympathize, and placate.

I also understand that a certain whimpering SoB enticed some of the anger as I myself got angry at PS3 players a couple times, and I AM a PS3 player.

People are already talking about PS3 limitations, but...

What I am talking about is a cash flow limitation. I don't have $500.00 to drop on a new PC, if one for that price could run it I don't know, let alone $2000.00 for a PC that could run it properly.

So how about you buy me a new PC and get over it already?

Reply's like that will not help get the angry ones to go away. It might even make those that are not angry become angry.

I remember back when I had no kids. *sigh* It would have seemed quite silly to me, then, that anyone could not manage to raise $500~$600 in a few months.

Nowadays that same $500 represents just a fraction of the required groceries and gas.

xthunderblazex, can i buy your laptop for $100?

The problem isn't so much that PC users are giving PS3 users a hard time, It's more that some (a few) PS3 users are making this out to be a second Holocaust. All i hear is "SE screwed me" and SE hasn't even given me a reason". Seriously, we all think it kinda sucks. But, that's it. It kinda sucks.

I've pretty much come to terms with the fact that I'll be waiting 6 months to play it, but one of you PC girls or boys better be giving me some J.tv love.

Ten -

Let me give you some insight into why the playstation faction is so upset. For YEARS, quite literally, YEARS, they didn't make improvements to XI that many players wanted because they wanted to make sure that their core base - the Ps2 folks - were not left out. Some things were just beyond the system's capabilities. Some things they needed to develop workarounds for. Everything they did, centered around making sure that the weakest link in the chain didn't break.

Now, whether they *should* have or not is a discussion for another thread. I personally agree that the Ps2 held back development of XI and caused more problems than it solved.

However, going from that, to basically saying that the Playstation hardware is taking a back seat... Well I'm sure you can understand why some of us might be a little upset. They have done a 180 and started sprinting in another direction.

Edit: Even my cheap *** laptop from a year ago can play FFXIV ffs, not that I would play it on it.


The listed specs might not be that high, but a lot of very good computers have bombed the benchmark, including mine. I have a PhenomII x4, 6 GB DDR3 1333, and a 1GB Gt220. No, it's not the best system in the world, but **** it there's no reason that it should have scored a 1257 on that benchmark. SE has gone to an extreme here that wasn't necessary.

FFXI, even as dated as it is, is a beautiful MMO. Maybe not on the Ps2 because of the hardware's limitations, but on a PC it's sharp, mature, and simply gorgeous. It's almost ten years old, to boot. Still looks better in every way compared to more successful MMOs - like WoW.

Really, they are focusing far too much on the graphical side of things when what people really want is a gaming experience that is fun and exciting. They don't have to string together 10 Ps3's, hack the pentagon, and launch the world into a time warp just to bring us an exciting game.

If WoW is proof of ANYTHING - it's that the graphical appeal isn't as integral a part of an MMO's success as other elements.

SE just loves to go out of their way to alienate the playerbase. Makes no sense to me, at all.
