Maybe this belongs in some sort of out-of-topic board, I'm uncertain, but I simply wished to share a small news story from E3.
There has been an influx of gloomy discussion on these boards - surely stemming from the writhing beast that is FFXIV and its currently tenuous state. I have read many posts lamenting the slow, encroaching death of the Final Fantasy franchise (time will tell whether SE rediscovers their proverbial roots), and I have participated in more arguments than my schedule should technically accommodate.
But I thought I'd share a bit of good news, good for all of us: SE announced today that the Final Fantasy franchise has officially shipped over 100,000,000 units. That's nice, I think; because, regardless of our opinions, most everyone on these boards would be happy to see FFXIV turn out well, and that cannot occur without the survival of SE.
If they're doing well, then they're more likely to try and repair this ambling beast, this game that somehow connects us despite the fact that most of us spend more time internet-yelling than actually playing it at this point.
There there you have it, a fleck of good news. Good night. d(º _ º )
