[quote=svlyons][quote=catwho]People need to realize, good or bad, at the end of the day Square Enix doesn't care about your adventures in Vana Diel, nor should they. It's a business. It's about profit. A few of the developers may, but they have to answer to corporate.
This is a sad truth.
On another note... I have just recently decided to come back to FFXI after 5+ years or so. I ordered a copy just the other day and expect its arrival tomorrow. FFXI and Vana'diel is truly its own world. FFXI is nothing like any of these cookie-cutter MMO's. After read this thread and the debate about the subject of dropping the PS2 support, now I'm wondering if I should even return...
At any rate, this is a great debate and several of you posters have good things to say. I just hope SE really reads these threads and recognizes that there is an opportunity here to expand.
