FF11田中弘道氏「FF11をPSVへの単純な移植は検討しているが現時点で具体的な計画はない、PS3への移植はハードの特性を生かすような移植は基本的に難しい」(もしアナタがスクエニの社長になったら?)「社員旅行の復活。福利厚生の充実。人材への精神的な投資と団結力の向上を図る」」

http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/07/13/famitsu_squenix_feature/

As part of the general Square Enix feature, Famitsu interviewed Final Fantasy XI producer (?) Hiromichi Tanaka. Tanaka said that they're investigating a straight port of Final Fantasy XI to the PlayStation Vita, but there's no solid plan for this at present.

Famitsu also asked Tanaka what he'd do if he were Square Enix CEO. He'd revive the company trips, he said, and invest in employee wellbeing.



Nothing concrete yet, but;

They are looking into it.


Good info for the 11 enthusiasts indeed!

How the **** is this 'in the works'? This doesn't mean anything, and is far from a confirmation.

"in the works" "they are looking into it" semantics. Ill rename the thread if you are butthurt.

Either way, they are researching the vita as an option for FFXI.

Don't be mad bro, just bringing people the news.

I'm so sorry for all the things I said, Tanaka! Take me back - ! T_T

...and on one of those "company trips" you want to revive (whatever those are).

Employee wellbeing, I would support that. With all of the sleep Yoshi hasn't been getting, I'm surprised he hasn't been sent to the hospital for exhaustion.

Remember how people thought PS3's Remote Play via PSP was supposed to allow you to play FFXI on PSP (via your PS3) (Back when PS3 actually was backward-compatible)

Square-Enix is notorious for 'investigating' things. They investigate everything, and they're really public with it. Here's a recent example. Here's another recent example. This doesn't mean anything. "In the works" means that they're actually working on it, they're not.

Also, you don't need to pull the 'u mad' card over every thing.

It's a great idea and would be groundbreaking if they actually pulled it off, but would the game really be worth playing without a keyboard? Even if it's just for simple communication, it seems like a really poor tradeoff.

****** mode: Touchpad. Wow what an ******* I am.

I really don't think I will but another handheld, but if I can get a FFXI fix sitting on the toilet while I am at work I will buy it.

XI is honestly past it's prime and needs to end already >.> Would be cool if this happened but they should really focus on XIV if they want this game to get off the ground but I can see this as a move to slowly nix the PS2 support.

I agree with this in theory, but FFXI's working to well to just axe. I do think they should shift focus away from it, and try and turn FFXIV or something else new into their cash cow, because you're right a PS2 game isn't going to last too much longer.

The worst is when it's the answer to a question, because it tends to mean "no" but in the nicest possible way.

The only upside to the PSVita is that it will most likely manage to fail slightly less than the PSPGo. Who cares what game they put on it.

Personally, if I was running the show, I'd nix the game that's costing me money every hour of every day in favor of upgrading and increasing development for the game that brings me money every hour of every day.

If FFXI came to Vita and SE allowed me to pick up my old character I'd def get this and play it a lot. The pick up and play aspect really appeals to me. Unfortunately I don't see anyway this would ever actually happen. It would be awesome but it'll never happen.

Wow, that's funny how the game population has been GROWING for the past 6 months then huh. I'd actually say that FFXI is IN it's prime right now. Sure the graphics and UI could use a nice revamp, but the rest of the game is superb and polished. There is no way they are going to optimize FFXIV for the Vita, it doesn't even run well on top end PC's now w/ 2gb+ graphics cards, ****-tons of RAM, and solid state drives. FFXI on Vita would be great, and I would be among the tens of thousands of FFXI players who would buy a Vita solely for this. It would be a brilliant marketing campaign for SE, and it would add another pretty large injection of players into FFXI, especially if they coupled it with an update to the graphics.

Hate to admit it, however if SE polished the UI and graphics of 11 i would go back to playing it again in a heart beat. I dumped it 2 years ago, however unlike most that did i am still paying my subscription so my BB monk is still there for me.
