So the Square-Enix Final Fantasy XIV Q&A session just ended, and there are a couple of points:

1) The game is being developed on PS3 as well as PC with other hardware(Microsoft) being considered. This pretty much translates into "We're releasing it on the PS3, PC and 360, but Sony paid us a lot of money not to mention the last part."

2) The game is going to be set totally apart from Final Fantasy XI, and there will be no sort of player transfer of any kind. Final Fantasy XI is still going to have content delivered to it for at least another year.

3) The trailer had pre-rendered footage as well as in-engine footage. The "galka" fighting those weird jellyfish things on the ship with other characters was in-game engine footage.

4) They're going to "look at various play styles such as partying, soloing, playing for 40 minutes or playing all day, etc." and make sure to have content suitable for all of them.

5) It's slated for a worldwide, simultaneous release in 2010. There will be a beta in the coming months.

This makes me happy. Also makes me wonder how they're gonna pull it off. To get anything done in FFXI you had to log on for at least 2 or 3 hours.

It says he's "making music" for the game, not scoring it. Perhaps he's just making one or two tracks like he did with XII and XIII.

I saw a comment on gametrailers that the ps3 will have a monthly fee for this game. Obviously it's just a comment, but does anyone have proof that it wont?

They said that they would not make any statements regarding the prices yet, but the monthly fee is pretty standard, so I guess they'd just follow that.

I've said it once, I'll say it again: if they could make a game based around the mechanics and ease of play that WoW offers with the stylistic design of XI, I'd be in heaven!! Having to clock so many hours into XI was just fine with me at first, but now, it turns me off.

Also, while I'm excited to see Nobuo on the project, Naoshi has been doing a phenomenal job on the expansions!

Finally, EdgeCrusher: Odin FTW! That's the server that sephfire and I were on.
