Yoshida: Final Fantasy XIV to get Vita, smartphone support, and later, Xbox 360 {Joystiq}

Oct 23rd 2011 3:44PM @neojames82

"The user base for the PlayStation 2 version was truncated initially because of limited sales of the PlayStation 2's hard drive and network adapters that were needed for the game.[80] The Japanese release of Rise of the Zilart was the number one selling game when it debuted with 90,000 copies sold in the first week.[80] The Final Fantasy XI All-in-One Pack was number 36 and Wings of the Goddess was number 40 on the top 50 best-selling Xbox 360 games in Japan as of December 2007.[81]
For the April–September 2004 financial period, Square Enix saw online gaming, particularly Final Fantasy XI, sales increase by 101 percent and operating profit increase by 230.9 percent.[82] Revenues held steady from subscription services in the summer of 2006; in the fall, however, Square acknowledged that online subscription revenues were "unsatisfactory", despite the steady performance of Final Fantasy XI.[83][84]
In December 2003, Square Enix president Yoichi Wada announced that there were over 200,000 subscribers to Final Fantasy XI, allowing the company to break even and start making a profit.[85] There were between 200,000 and 300,000 active players daily in 2006.[43] As of August 14, 2006 the Xbox 360 version was the sixth most played game on Xbox Live.[86]"

So, it's been almost pure profit for 7 years or so, with thousands to hundreds of thousands of people pumping in money. It may not have the box sales numbers of FF7, but I assure you this is a bigger money maker. Wonder why FF11 is still going, but no one cares to remake FF7? THERE'S WHY.

Well cool, in that case I don't see why my warrior can't summon demons and then heal himself. It'd be more convenient to players than lore, so it should be in the game!

....facepalm becauuuuuuuuuse? You don't name your power tools, or even your screws/nails. Warlocks only view demons as disposable tools and would never care what it's name may be. It's a master/slave relationship.

And people wanting to use better options is bad because....? You couldn't figure out how to configure them? You're a terrible player even with the help and you have no more excuses for your ineptitude?
