May 24th 2011 6:26AM Amazing. They really are re-building the game. The "wheel of weapons" theme (present in the logo) is even being removed in lieu of a proper job system. Maybe it was for the best, but I don't think the idea was bad rather than execution.
A complete disaster the FFXIV launch was, and this is the only way to handle fixing it. It still takes guts, however, as each major revision posted, planned, and implemented is an admission of that failure.
My idea? Make all the changes necessary until the feedback is good enough and they are comfortable enough to charge monthly. Get rid of the stupid currency system, be honest and just charge people's credit cards. Then, get the PS3 port ready, and re-launch the game with new box art, anything they can to distance it from the original (it's pretty much a different game after all).
Then when they have made a release we're all happy with, release the full damn soundtrack.

Mar 18th 2011 7:22PM The wrong answer: "XBox Live is too small a demographic."
The right answer: "We're already reaching that demographic."
I'd feel a new, special kind of pity for people that play FarmVille on their XBox. Then I'd read about how Zynga still managed to turn a profit after Microsoft takes their cut and I would crawl back into the fetal position.
