Well a new payment system is taking place in XI and since I guess XI and XIV are connected via payment systems, I guess this goes for FFXIV as well...just a guess.

I think all that is happening is, is that FFXI is adpoting FFXIV's payment system. (As far as Crysta is concerned...)

/sigh I gave up waiting for SE to explain why they still charged full price for FF11 after FF14 was several months online.I know legally they'll say the 30 trial never ended so it's Crysta under the bridge.

I don't. You needed Verified by whatever and all this Secure stuff my bank didn't support.

It sounds new to me--you can buy Crysta with a credit card (weren't people complaining you needed PayPal? I haven't bought any Crysta yet, because you don't need to buy any to play for free right now, but if it went p2p I would), and you can buy as much Crysta as you want (so you don't end up buying more than you need, which AFAIK is how it's set up at the moment, and was complained about quite a bit last year). Crysta's Crysta, right? Crysta you buy for FFXI should work like Crysta you buy for FFXIV, so I would imagine this matters. Maybe I'm missing something though, but I think it's good news.

That has already happened, what this announcement is about is that they finally responded (with changes) to how we pay for not only XI about XIV as well (when it is no longer F2P) as the majority of XI was in an uproar at the inconsistencies of payment options between the different regions, and us NA players were stuck using a third party client outside of our region(forcing exchange rate charges for some) that some people viewed as a shady business(....requires to mail/fax driver's license/passport for ID.). It will be nice to buy specific amount of crysta instead of 500 point/increments at a time as this makes it fair to all non-Japanese players.
