Just as long as they don't delay the PS3 launch to have a dual launch...

I really think M$ is going to cave eventually, but they need to cave sooner rather than later if they want strong sales on the 360.

I would have played the game on 360, since my TV is bigger than my computer screen, but... I don't want to wait that long.

Why not run your PC to your TV? Are they in different rooms or is it a cable-compatibility issue?

They are in different rooms, and I could move my tower... but I have to "share" the TV with my wife and 3 yr old, lol.

TBH, I wouldn't be surprised if MS finally does compromise with SE. And I'd like to see that happen for 2 reasons:

1) Adding another platform to FFXIV's roster, will certainly increase the playerbase. More people playing FFXIV = more fun.

2) More household options on where I can play my game. Just like with FFXI, I had the game on my PC, laptop, Xbox 360 and PS2.

It's not like sharing with roomates, wife and child count as at least 2 each so it's at least 4 to 1...probably closer to 6 to 1.

Trophies suck, half the time I don't even notice I got them. I only use my PS3 for Blu-ray and netflix nowadays.







Too easy...

Everyone knows they both suck. Real gamers build their own gaming cabinets to house and play Super Street Fighter II Turbo on the Dreamcast.

I wonder if I am the only one that would rupture something laughing if the xbox 360 version came out before the PS3.

We solved the memory issue with the PS3 version but to get microsoft to allow FFXIV on the xbox 360 we had to give them 3 months early access. We should finish the xbox 360 version in late may of 2012. Thank you for your patience.

If this is every a real press release I am so dead. ^^

I'm pretty sure Square is in with Sony too much to let that happen, but that's a hilarious scenario.

It'll probably be like Achievements in FFXI, since you can play the same account on two different platforms. If you were to hit Level 40 (per your example) on PC and then switch to PS3, you have nothing to trigger the trophy on PS3.

However, it wouldn't surprise me if actually achieving the trophies while playing on PS3 unlocked them as well, but I'd think that there would have to be an NPC or something just in case.

In FFXI you went to a special NPC to unlock the achievements for Xbox 360. I'd imagine they'd do something similar if there were enough demand for trophies (however unlikely that is).

I'd be scared to play it on 360. Mine has yet to RROD because I know not to play it for more than a few hours at a time. FFXIV would make that impossible.

The problem with achievements/trophies is:

1) Based on XI (And XIII), we can already tell SE really doesn't care about them if you consider the point distribution.
2) If a game isn't designed with achievements in mind, they're just extra fodder.
3) "Let's go for an achievement" only works if everyone has the same achievements. Since PC players wouldn't have any, they'd be unlikely to care about helping others with particularly difficult achievements, therefore driving a rift between computer and console players.

Remember that FFXIV is using the same graphics engine as FFXIII and so will probably render at 1024x576 with 2x FSAA like FXIII does on the 360. (FFXIII on 360 uses a 720p HUD, but renders the game's 3D graphics at 576p)


Dropping the FSAA might allow them to bump it up to 1280x720, but whether that would look better is debatable.
