Default Final Fantasy XI coming to PS3

Quote:
According to the latest Dengeki PlayStation Japanese gaming magazine, Square Enix is porting Final Fantasy XI to the Playstation 3. The MMORPG was already released on the PC, Playstation 2 and Xbox 360.

The port may end up being the first retail Square Enix game on the Playstation 3 with Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII still in development in addition to The Last Remnant falling off the radar.

I wonder if it has crossplay, I think the 360 and PS2 versions do.

The last Square Enix game I paid full-price for (ie: new) was I believe... ummm, jesus I think it was Kingdom Hearts 2 if you exclude Legend of Kage 2 on DS (Taito) and that was a clearance thing.

I am not wasting any more money on Square games.

Not sure why they should bother at this point with their new MMO Rapture, under development by the FFXI team, possibly coming out by the end of the year for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

There are still a good chunk of people playing it, so those servers aren't going to be shut down any time soon. Given they've already made a 360 version, it shouldn't be to hard to port that over to the PS3. A PS3 version should keep FFXI relevant for a few more years - especially in Japan.

It most likely will have cross-play.

I mean, it kind of has to. I have a couple buddies who play this and they are strict on banning people, for various reasons, which lowers the games population.

The game works great on 360 (with a keyboard that is) and I imagine it will work the same with the PS3 (with a keyboard that is).

Yes it will have crossplay, it would be ridiculous if it didn't.

Also, why wait so long SE?

I remember a couple of years back one of the leads of FFXI said they only put it on the 360 because they could very easily and cheaply port the PC version to it but the PS3 wouold take a reworking of the game to run properly, so I guess they finally figured out how to make it work,

This is the only Final Fantasy that doesn't have a Finale.

I really don't understand why it was numbered. Honestly, I don't.
