Cool....Lionx still posts. =P

Nifty interview, but as always SE basically just dodges half the bullets. Not nearly as bad as some past interviews though.

Least they made me chuckle :D and yes i still post

1UP: Since Final Fantasy XI is the only majorly successful MMO to ever hit a video game console and to survive for seven years, can you tell us what you think has attributed to FFXI's long-lasting success?

Hiromichi Tanaka: Actually, that's a mystery to us as well, why it's been so successful with the players.

Also, we're thinking of making a new type of place where people can level or a type of enemy or a battlefield, where you don't need a tank to level.

This concerns and annoys me slightly, as if people hadn't descended from trad-parties enough. >_>
