RAHRAH BLAH FIlthMcNasty you just do not understand how the humans operate. Vanity cash shops... you are looking at the 1-5 out of every 1000 players actually spending decent chunks of change int he CS... NOT ENOUGH! Let us look at a real world example

"Excuse me sir, would you like a fresh baked cookie? You can have it for free. Or you can pay 5 bucks so I can make a little profit."

Can I get a show of hands of how many would take the cookie for free? (Everyone raises hand but FilthMcNasty). Are you finally understanding Filth? (FFXIV is the cookie just to clarify...)

PEOPLE WILL NOT PAY FOR WHAT THEY CAN HAVE FOR FREE! There is no point in buying a dumb new hat when it offers no boosts to stats or anything. If it does then the cash shop would be pay to win and you would no longer have any arguments Filth. Like I said, Aion is the ONLY game to do the everything free and vanity cash shop... So I don't know where you get the idea that All games will benefit from this model...

Yes, people will use a stupid vanity cash shop... But not many. It is a fact you must accept. Vanity items are pointless and most people would ONLY partake when they felt like splurging a bit which would be RARELY! You probably think lots of people buy lots of things from cash shops because you see tons of people with a cash shop item in games you play. Most likely that is the only cash shop item they have or they have just a tiny handful because they decided to go "eh, what the heck" and splurge on it. Everyone buying 1 or 2 things will still have the game crash and burn fast.

Vanity cash shop = horrendous idea for FFXIV plain and simple.

FF RR will be F2P someday and will have a vanity shop. Not at the release date....but later on.

Feel free to educate yourself. I think this guy knows a little about the subject.
