i know that in most mmorpgs you have to pay around
50$ for the game and then monthly fees on 10-15$
Im assuming this will happen in FFXI.
how do they think people can afford that?
if the monthly fee is 10$ you would have to pay 120$ a year.
add that to the software price it would mean you have to pay 170$ to play the game for one year.

do you think its worth all that money?
why do they make these kinds of prices, can't they make games that normal people can afford?

maybe i got this whole thing wrong but it seems like an awful lot of money to me.

final fantasy for ps2 will probably end up being more expensive than that game will probably be 50 bucks unless the go eq style and sell it for 20

the hdd i've heard will be 150

and the game is gonna be 9.60 a month so.........

thats between 290 and 320 for a year.........

but if i can afford it i'll play it because its a ff game and a mmorpg how can it get any better..........except for maybe eq 2 but i wanan play on ps2 my computer sucks to bad to paly any good games

The game itself is price somewhere between $40-$50, from my understanding.

It costs $12.95 a month, with $1 more for each additional character and another $1 more if you wish to play the card game, I don't suggest it. It's the one from FFIX, the one that sucked.

The HDD has not yet had a price set on it, but there have been talks of the game and the HDD coming in a bundle pack for around $70-$90. I'm leaning more on the lower side.

Well... Personaly I don't think its expensive at all....

But i HAVE A fREAKING job!!!!

$10 or even $15 a month is still less than having a subscription to some magazines and the Cheese of the month club is like $20 a month i think....

Pluss.....Whenever you get sick of the game.....Stop paying the damn bill......

Then if you decied you want to play again......Sign up again....

Anywhoo!! Its less than some magazine subscriptions and IMHO it will probably be the Greatest Final Fantasy So Far.....

i would probably afford it.
but if i pay all my money i feel like i need to play it even if i don't feel like it.
whats so special with MMORPGs? why can't you just pay for the software and remove the monthly fees?

Because if you played Starcraft, there are TONS of jerks there because it is free. I know free is good, but its just people there will generally not be good. Sure it will still have jerks but ALOT less. No swearing and the sort. MMORPGs are also more than the standard play SC and its over, its a community and everyone in there can affect it for the better or worst. And paying games usually have better communities. Server costs as well require alot of money and the GM team. Though i do wish they charge the same as the JP players, its not as bad as say some that are 15-20 dollars a month.


MMORPGs are unique with its players and well i guess you have to play one to see.

i think 50 bucks for the game is enough.
if you pay 50 bucks you want to play the game and not sabotage.

Starcraft was 50 bucks and free and look at hackers and jerks.

Well I don't know if I'm the only one who happened to notice, but sony no longer makes any final fantasies after they put out x-2 and XI. They sold all the rights to the game to nintendo, henceforth Crystal Chronicles. I'm not sure how far copyright laws go, but the only thing I can think of sony being able to do after their last two games would be for them to keep coming out with expansions for XI and maybe even sequels for other final fantasies they have made. But I'm not sure they are even allowed to do the sequels.

Actually, it cost $53.49. I know b/c I just preordered it for PC today (and all with old trade in games at EB).

ermmm, about pre-ordering. are there any stores in america that pre-order it, like a actual big chain of stores (toys-r-us or best buy) and if so whats the price and do you get anything free, and if so what is the best. i think they should actually make extra characters more per month so people don't do the suicide thing, becuase i'm pretty sure that some people would pay a extra buck a month to get better weapons and more perks

Sony don't make FF games, Square-Enix do.

What are you trying to say? I don't understand. I stated that Square-Enix (And Squaresoft) make the Final Fantasy games. I never said that they didn't make any for Nintendo, because they have in the past and are making one for Gamecube and GBA.

This is what you have said "but sony no longer makes any final fantasies after they put out x-2 and XI" and I was stating that they don't make them, Square (Wether it'd be Squaresoft or Square-Enix) do.

FiragO, I'm sorry someone pointed out an error that you made, but that was just so rude. And, since its flaming, and flaming is agianst the rules, this is your first official warning. Congrats.

FiragO

Ok i'm sorry for flaming. That was bad day for me. I know that was what you were saying, i'm just retarded most of the time so i don't recognize my own mistakes. What I was trying to say is that there has been official statements that there are going to be no more official installments (after x-2 and xi) made for playstation.

May I ask where the sources for your information are? I know they have made a couple of FF games for Nintendo lately, but I'm sure it doesn't mean that they've made it their sole console to use. Unless I've missed something.

BTW, you must've known what you were saying, anyone would have.
