Five Reasons Why Final Fantasy XI Should Be on the Vita

Hardcore Gamer: even outside of the financial sense such a move would make, there are so many other reasons why Final Fantasy XI should show up on the PlayStation Vita. Here are five of them. (Final Fantasy XI, PS Vita)

Why not XVI? Would seem more plausible.

MMO Final Fantasies just need to go away...

FF XI is actually pretty good.
Menchi  +   984d ago
Guess you never played XI? Easily of the best Final Fantasy stories in the CoP expansion. Music in that game? Fantastic, some of the best gaming tracks around.

FFXI got so much flack for being online, yet it is easily of the best Final Fantasy games.
LordHiggens  +   984d ago
That can't be true, if you take away the individuality of the player/story experience your left with a feeling of just being another drop in a very large bucket. It lacks intensity it lacks seriousness when other players are involved.

No. They are here to stay...They just need to be re-invented and heavily tweaked for the next gen gaming experience.

You say that like you know it as fact when you haven't even played it. FFXI really isn't like other MMOs and actually did do a pretty good job at making you feel important with the way it handled cutscenes. And I agree with Menchi about CoP being a really great storyline, they really haven't topped it yet imo and probably never will with the massive direction change the game took. The only main difference is that your party now consists of real people instead of you controlling them all. And it doesn't get much more serious and rewarding than taking on the hardest challenges in the entire series with your party of friends. FFXI really was a rewarding experience that I'll miss. I'm not even a very social person and generally do things alone even in MMOs and I still made some great friends that I still talk to today. I wouldn't call it my favorite (FFVI and FFVIII won't lose that spot), but if anything it felt like more of an adventure than any other entry in the series.

MMO should just go away..... 99% of them are generic, the remaining ruined by one reason or another, and all they do is drain your money.

Sounds like someone needs a prescription for Guild Wars 2!

drains your life. im sorry but spending years and years in one single virtual world is not only limiting but unhealthy. on top of that you dont own it so when servers go down those years upon years you spent is no more then but a dream.
profgerbik  +   984d ago
Thing is people over exaggerate on that. Fact is there is a big chance a person is already planning on playing video games in general all their life. So that spending years playing a MMO really is nothing when that person is still playing other games or would have been even if MMO's didn't exist.

There are very few people who actually sit on an MMO every single hour of the day. Most people just like the majority all play many different games and MMO's might be included. Those same enthusiast who take it over board in MMO's are seen in every single genre of games there are.. RTS, RPG, FPS.. Ect.

Again it all depends on the person.

Games are like drugs, they can be played responsibly but the opposite could be said that some people just don't care play them irresponsibly but those people would probably risk their health doing whatever it is they do, over working yourself in general can also be bad for you.

I just think that is a general misconception. A MMO can be played just like any other game. It is how addicted a person becomes to that type of game that is the problem, not necessarily the game itself.

While I agree it isn't healthy to play games for hours on end (not just MMOs), and you will eventually lose what you gained in a MMO, the actual friends you make playing aren't a dream. I've made great friends on this game that turned into RL friends. A little self control is all you need to play a MMO without it being detrimental to your health.

I fail to see how porting an MMO to a platform with such a low install base would make "financial sense". Am I missing something?
TongkatAli  +   983d ago
Cause the install base isn't that low and the Vita can play it easily and profit ?

i just finished replaying ffiv (ff 2 us) on the vita. valkyria chronicles 2 next. ffiv still translate to a great rpg after all these years. unlike ffvii. sorry, i could only play through it once. tried again a few months back; didnt last an hour :/ .

With a possible western release of pso2 on the vita (pc confirmed so vita one is highly likely) the ff11 would have to be F2P for it to gain any ground on the vita.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   984d ago
If this happens then I guess I won't be getting FF14. I hear good things about 11 and playing on my couch and not at my computer would be great. It's nice to at least have the option.

They need to release FFX HD first!
Been waiting waaay too long for that game.
The reason I bought a Vita over 18 months ago. For a HD remake?
Sithlord-Gamble  +   983d ago
This game was addicting as hell. I'd love to get back into it & playing it on my Vita would be a plus. I hope this happens!
