What the hell kind of airships are those? In City of Heroes, you don't need no stinking airships to fly.

I like that they're supporting the PS3, so they'll have something to blame in 5 years when they can't fix some silly problem like your character stopping dead in his tracks when someone casts a spell on them.

I said I would never come back to FFXI... but I never said anything about FFXIV....

The more I hear about this, the more I am starting to believe we may be getting ahead of ourselves. Current rumor is there is no actual job system - one character, one "job". The developers said this game was designed to play as a regular Final Fantasy game, even though it technically is an MMO.

There is also rumors that it will be "free to play". This would only make sense to me if it was truely meant to be closer to an online version of an offline-FF game and could be "completed" in a relatively short amount of time.

Everything is speculation as of right now, but I wouldn't quite plan on this being the "next FFXI" right now.

It could also be free to play because they're intending micro-content updates and upgrades that you have to pay for. That system is all the rage these days.

Free to pley, eh? Heck, I'd consider that. If it was a good game, I'd probably pay for the paid updates.

With more information, it is looking less like it will be free-to-play. Last I heard they will use "30 day billing" instead of monthly billing, to avoid charching for partial months.

Perhaps, the first quote about this being a FF game first and a MMO second was just PR spin. It is looking more and more like a real MMO, but much less hardcore than FFXI.

Also, of interest is the idea of ditching the entire "experience points" system. Apparantly, players won't gain levels but will improve their characters in a different way. The developers are hinting at removing "grinding" from being the way to advance characters.

Another rumor is voice-acting in FFXIV. This question was asked, it wasn't confirmed nor denied but when asked a developer apparantly smiled and winked when he said he could not talk about that right now.

Er... Voice acting? As in people voice acting or players?

I just have one question:

Players are people. So is soylent green. Players don't voice act, they chat or communicate. Voice Actors, who are also people, will be the people voice acting.
