According to the latest Dengeki PlayStation Japanese magazine, Square Enix is porting Final Fantasy XI to the Playstation 3.
Bit late, really...
what's the point of this? i mean can't you play ps2 games online with the ps3 i did that with latest socom that came out on the ps2
They waited for the chat-pad to official come out so they could atleast count on 5,121 game sales. Which makes complete sense, hence why they release J-RPGS exclusively for the 360 in Japan. I think the president of the company is going to sink square. Perhaps he secretly works for Namco or Capcom.
1. The HD thing. The 360 version is in HD, the PC CAN be, but the PS2 version isn't. The PS3 version will be. 2. More trophies, though if they'll be the same as the achievements for the 360 version ( http://www.xbox360achieveme... ), expect a TON of time to be used up getting the Plat for that one. There's a LOT of work to be done there.
Not all PS3s are backwards compatible with PS2 games... I thought that was common knowledge. Anyways it's about time but I wish they would just move on now and show us a new MMO. Only hardcore FF XI players will pick this up.
Already have it for PC , they need to hurry up with FF13 and start working on PS3 games , PS3 owners really dont need this game to be honest.
How long has the 360 had this game?!?!? Seriously, someone needs to kick Yoichi Wada's ass for me. -_-"
It's about time. LOL
@1.1 The point of this is to milk PS3 users with monthly fees; They can't milk us right now since there's not a single game on PS3 from SquareEnix. I will give my middle finger to this idea of profiting.
doesn't matter. My FFXI addiction is going to be making a come back!
Not interested,try again Square.
PLEASE don't say that. At least it's SOMETHING they are making. It's better than nothing, and it could open the door for SE to start treating the PS3 with some other love, FINALLY! Better than nothing. If we don't just TRY to at least commend them for actually thinking of porting SOMETHING over, they'll think we're not appreciative and won't do anything else. Go ahead and do it, SE! EDIT: I didn't say anything about LR. It's obvious the guy who made THAT can't program worth SH!T! This is a lot different (they really wanted to do this one, but someone left before it could be finalized and it was in idle for so long up until now).
Sort of like how they are making The Last Remnant for the Ps3? Yeah,sorry but I don't give a damn about a mediocre JRPG maker porting a 5 year old so-so JRPG game onto the Ps3.I'd rather give Level-5 and FromSoftware my money,thanks.
I think this game would get overlooked if released on the ps3 with all the other MMOs coming
played it on the ps2 (had it running on 2 ps2's for my son and i) got it on my backward compatible ps3 when i had a BC PS3. and also had it on my 360. i'm pretty much done with ffxi... interesting is seeing what squares next mmo might be though.
Square Enix Sucks they should jus give up this generation not one good game has come out Final Fantasy 13 is gonna be bad i bet it will
yo seriously this is what we get? a final fantasy 11 port? square is probably the dumbest company of this generation. is it being run by children?
[Thanks for the offer but i'll have to pass]
you think they deleted my lvl 75 redmage lol! my ps2 was full of dust inside after 1 year of being on cuz of this game the only time i had it off was when they did updates and when i was on vacation for 1 week....
I think they have been doing their Return to Vandalel thing yearly where those that chose to leave for a while (as in, those that weren't kicked out because they broke the rules) can have their original character restored or something like that.
I checked to see if my characters were still there maybe 3 weeks ago Its been about 9 months since i had one of the characters activated and over a year for another one and both were still there so they might still have your character, but three years is a long time.
The game sucked badly, imo. It's slow, uneventful combat is what put me off. Not to mention the children who like drama. -_- Square Enix cannot surprise me anymore than they have. If anyone says anything like "at least they're throwing you PS3 owners a bone" Then I would have to correct you and say it's more like throwing us two middle fingers.
i loved the combat system with all the skillchains and stuff, i might try this again if it comes with a month free and my character still available after 3 years
I'm interested in this.
The really pails in comparison to other Massive Multiplayer Role Playing Games. Try Wow or Eve, or heck warhammer.
I enjoyed FFXI way more than WoW. The Community was way better too, a lot less douches running around at least on my server.
Lol, why...? No one wants this garbo.
Still have my Final Fantasy XI for the ps2...no thanks...
Sony should port EverQuest II to the PS3.
I agree, its no wow but its a good game. Especially since the PS3 has keyboard and mouse support.
well now that scea and soe are merged they said going forward all mmo's will be on pc and playstation. here's hoping they are either working on Everquest III or Everquest Online Adventures II
I think SOE is still too busy working on The Agency and DC Online. Probably once DC Online goes live, they'll start working on a fantasy-based game for the PS3. Hopefully not EverQuest, because I'm just done with that mythology all together.
Damn good thing I can't fully curse here, otherwise I'd light up a blue streaked paragraph. This just feels like a slap in the face to me. Especially since the game's been out for so long. Almost like they're crawling on their belly in a way.
edit wrong article >< In any case I havent played it for about 2 years now, Im waiting for the NCSOFT PS3 exclusive MMO
I think I'll wait for Code name rapture for the PS3 as for now I would just continue to play it on PC.
Why would I want a port of a crappy MMO by S-E? I don't even want FF13 cause that is garbage too. Besides, who's really going to buy this mediocre game again? On top of that there are waaay better MMOs coming out on PS3 which are free to play unlike this garbage.
true, very true
Seriously this game is gonna go down the drain on the ps3 line up. It's too little to late. Here is the upcoming NEW MMORPG. DC Universe The agency 2 NCSoft MMO's seriously this game is gonna go down the drain as far as sales goes on the ps3. I still don't get the point of releasing it again as far as business goes. They should just focus their efforts on finishing FFXIII.
It's time to move on. Still waiting on WKC.
Epic Fvcking Fail!! hmm,so wait a second here... the 360 gets the Final fantasy 13 port and we get Final fantasy 11 port?? Fvck you!
I remember when my bro bought this a long time ago on the ps2. I thought he bought it for the game, but it turned out he only bought it for the hdd. The game and everything else has still been unopened.
To bad I couldnt tell you thedifference between FF XX and FF Versus XI or XXIV or VIXX or ABCDERF or XXIIIVVVXVXVXVXV or XXVXVX... Seriously whoever named these games should be shot and then hung and stoned by village people... Then burned with fire.. Twice.
All this is is just... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Dont get me wrong.. but for a 7 year old game this still looks good. The port is very nice for players that already got the game. I would like it on my ps3. I recently started playing this again after two years. Started it 5 years ago. There's no game i'm still playing after 5 years. Yes, i find this odd. But i don't mind a port. If you don't like it, if you don't want it, you don't buy it. Simple. I'm much more looking forward to 'Rapture'. We should get more info about that on e3. WKC aswell. Yes FFXI is old, and it had its best time. But it's still a good game with alot of people playing it hardcore 24/7. But it's one of the 'old-gen'. It's time for a new one i agree. And they've made the game alot easier and added tons of new stuff in the past few years. This came very unexpected and i have to see it, too believe it. And why are they focussing on this and not porting their other mediocre titles? Wierd.
But ToAU ruined this game, There is no Job Balance. If you want to participate in End game level Samurai or Red Mage.
What a waste of code.... 1) because i liked this game for about 1 week and then the boredom won, 2) cause it will be a horrible port with old gen graphic for sure... I'd really like if they worked hard on the XIII and so, maybe we'd get it earlier (unless it's another team)
Why oh why oh why would Square Enix waste time, money and reosurces porting this ancient game to PS3? Completely pointless. SqaureEnix appear to be losing the plot...
Hey i still play this game from time to time, glad they're finally giving PS3 a port, the game is still alive and well still adding content. I can see SE doing this trying to work the free trial angle on PSN, where they couldn't on xbox live. I'm actually thinking they might not make a disk version and just have it on the PSN. Game still has many years ahead of it, hopefully more expansions to come. I'm hoping it runs smoother than the 360 version and 1080p support, I'd love graphical updates but don't see it happening :) Why they're actually doing this so late in the game it's simple, doesn't cost them much to do, and this game is a huge cash cow for SE despite what people might say about the game- so it's not that difficult to cover the expenses.
its a shame ... SE just saw MS is not theyr answer to $$$$ ... is PS ... now theyr trying to repair theyr errors. 2+ years later?!? HELL NO!
I already have FFXI on my PS3. I popped in the PS2 discs, downloaded the PS2 - PS3 HDD update.. and I now play it on my PS3.
How comes, this most be Japan only isn't? I mean, are they serious... for real!? Multiples PS3 news late coming from S-E.. are they leaving the wrong .side for the right side? hahahahha, I'm joking guys don't take it personal :) But alas lets see what are they planning for this at end. I might if this one will using the Crystal Engine or the same engine from the actual game.
Wow, seriously people complaining that it's been on the 360 for years. Yer it was on the PS2 as well but Sony didn't give proper support neccessary so hardly anyone had it. I mean FFS, they do you guys a favour and you still complain. They show they're not anti-PS3 and you still whine.
Taking two hours to install from what I hear. And I don't think it got any of the expansions.
It does have the expansions. What I mean by proper support though is that Sony removed the HDD compatibility when they made the Slim SKUs and it already sold very little and online wasn't exactly great on the PS2. Then the possibility of playing it on the PS3 was removed.
I've always wanted to try out Final Fantasy XI, but I don't like playing games on PC and I'm not purchasing a 360. I wonder if this game will release in Europe?
It almost killed my social life, I made to get out just because it was the only game I was playing on pc ( Oh well, I tried WoW for like a month too, and also Guild Wars for a couple of month ), and when I changed the pc I didn' t instal FFXI again . But now that is coming to Ps3 I know -I fear- I will be tempted to play it again every day I turn on the console. I like my social life ; ; Damn you Squaresoft ( at the time it was still the glorius Squaresoft! ), you made a game so damn good that I almost got crazy! IHMO Final Fantasy XI is waaaaay better than WoW! That said I' m going to get a ton of disagree lol
Forget XI I want news on the their next MMO
This is something I was not expecting. Awhile back alot of people wanted them to release a PS3 version of Final Fantasy XI around the time of the Xbox 360 version. However SE stated something along the lines of because of the complexity of the hardware it would take far to long to rewrite all the code and they would rather just focus on another MMO and soon after that Rapture was announced. And now we have this news. Makes no sense to me. Come on Square whats going on. While you are at it beef up the graphics a bit give the PS3 fans something for lying to them for so long,
really square????? wow thanks but no thanks
I've been playing with people using a PS3 to play FFXI for well over a year.
yeh it's so late that i wonder whats the point? i could have played this game aaaaagggggeeeesss ago, so why would i decide i wanna play it now? was it actually any gd as an mmorpg btw cus i think it slipped most ppls radars.
lets see about some trophy support.
If they made ff 12 for ps3 probably wouldve been better but ff11 even though its a tad late.... if they do a good enough job might sell nicely for them. I just dont like paying to play I would buy it not for that.
why didn't they just remake VII or something. I would at least buy that
vDaikoukai Jidai online : Cruz del Sur. no offence Square (- ^_^ -)
