I found this over at Xengamers:
Baby steps...that's where online console gaming is at right now. It's exciting, but at the same time we're going to be guinea pigs in a large experiment.
Is there a off-line mode to FFXI much like PSO for the Dreamcast?
I know I can't pass this game up... but I'd much prefer an offline mode with no monthy charges.
Online only, Brian.
O well.... I still have to get it, I have FF 4-10, I can't just skip 11
I'll just have to limit my self to a few months... or it will get out of hand like Dark Age did (just about to stop playing after 7 months of not much else)
only aprehension i have about this is how difficult it will be to configure it to play online. I haven't seen much on this. I see mention of an ethernet adapter. so does that mean everyone who wants to play this will basically have to set up a network in their homes? set up a LAN next to their TV's?
Since the game will be online only does Square plan on selling the game at a lower cost to make the whole experience more affordable? Without internet access the disc would be nothing more than a coaster. Granted that nobody without online access would buy it, I'm curious if they will charge full price for the game plus a premium for online.
All this online talk has really got me in the worst mood to pull out PSO for the old Dreamcast!
I might pass on this one unless its the best game ever made. I can't justify $50 and around $15 a month for a game that will be obsolete in a few years. At least Square is still giving us a single player FF game.
Speaking of which, shouldn't there be a ton of FFXII media out right now? Square unveiled FFIX, FFX, and FFXI soon after VIII's release, so its seems to be taking them a while to show off XII.
