Will FFXI: Seekers of Adoulin be available for purchase on a CD/DVD format for the regular version as well as the Ulitmate Edition?
I have checked Amazon and didnt see a Ultimate edition CD/DVD ;;

Only avail on download which could range for a 12Gig file : 6~12hrs downloading

Anyone can share any info for a physical cd/dvd merchant ?
Thanks, and btw.. for US region.

I don't believe a DVD will be available for PC, even SE's store does not offer a hard disc copy. The 12 GB refers to everything and Seekers will be a significantly smaller portion, but I don't know if you can download expansions separately.

I know the US doesn't have the fastest internet in the world, but you must have a ridiculously slow connection if it's going to take 6 hours to download.

Seekers itself wont be anywhere near 12Gb (or even 6Gb). The current base game, 4 expansions, and 6 add-ons, and PlayOnline is just under 11Gb. I'm willing to bet Seekers itself is about 1Gb, seeing how Amazon is estimating that the entire Ultimate Collection will be 12Gb.

hmm last year I had to re-install all my disks and after that I needed to spend 10-12 hours downloading the updates for FFXI in it's currant state.

The slow updates are more of a problem with POL than actual network speeds.

Using the update torrent from BG can cut a full update down to an hour or two.
