Best Buy is discounting FFXIV SE by $10, making in $39.99 for Gamers Club members

I got this in my email today:

I just thought it was funny because Best Buy thinks the land is called: Hydaelyn

Heh, beat me to it.

Not surprising, though. They know the "gamers club" demographic, and despite SE's efforts to cater to the contrary, this is a hardcore gamer's game. Not surprised to see a discount to move their most likely stagnant inventory (probably based it off of XIII sales, which was a bad idea...)

OK, I'm just going to hide in a corner and admit that I always thought it was "Eorzea"

Silly Cyoide, Eorzea is for adventurers! But don't worry, I admit I thought it was Eorzea for awhile until I checked a wiki site. SE went with some strange names for their places and lands this time around. Vana'diel was so easy to remember since you always heard it. Yet you rarely hear them call it Hydaelyn, normally "Eorzea" is the name you hear.

Hydaelyn is the planet, Eorzea is the continent (or sub continent, I remember hearing somewhere it is part of the Garlean Empire's continent).

Don't expect to be seeing much of Hydaelyn though. Eorzea is "special" in terms of the planets continents and Aetheryte gate technology can only be found in Eorzea. That doesen't mean we won't see other continents but that would make for a long trip home.

It looks likes we will be stuck with Eorzea and Garlemald.

Willing to wager that we'll leave Eorzea in expansions?

Given the ToAU expansion, I'd say it's possible.
