PostSubject: FFXIV Brings Square Enix a JPY 9.7 Billion Loss   Wed May 18, 2011 8:41 am

Shortly after the release of Square Enix's financial reports for its
past fiscal year, the info about the company's loss drew much
attention from the industry (investors). Square Enix's president,
Yoichi Wada, recently expressed that FFXIV (Final Fantasy XIV) was the main cause of the loss.



Final Fantasy XIV Fan Art

As Yoichi Wada said, the 12 billion loss that Square Enix suffered
was partly due to the cancellation of several projects but largely
because of the online game FFXIV, and even consistent modifications
made to FFXIV failed to avoid the loss. Their game business keeps
entangled in a gloomy situation, and one to two years are needed to
turn things around. Moreover, they are considering a new billing system
and planning to focus on SNS (Social Networking Service) and
smartphone products, so it'll take them at least three to five years to
expand this franchise.

really hope they will just consider closing the game and admit they did it wrong if they cannot do a revamp of the features.i might still try a ffxv if they did it right....

but ya square enix is definitely not square soft.how could they release this game so early and think it will succeed is beyond me heh.the release date should have been like 2013 giving their slow speed in coding

It's so sad that typical Korean f2p somehow gives me more fun than xiv. I agree too, that they should revamp the game and redevelop it. Then, finally release it somewhere in the future when everything is complete, they've got huge advantage in graphics and if they got the features as well it'll probably be very big.

It's been a month and I'm not even missing FFXIV. I stand by my previous statement that FFXIV is a piece of art, not a game.

haha ya eir.think i will only try game again after they make major changes to it.right now it seems they just changing some of the stuff and adding stuff to present system..which might help in short run but not working honestly for long run.

their system .... basically for lack of better word - sux

not engaging enough to hold gamers interest for long term.

almost no end game content.

basically no long term goal to motivate max lvl gamers to go out and grind more and do stuff unless u are like one of those who wanted to max all battle job ^^.unlike ffxiv.most mmo for end game usually allow players to gather awesome gears/gears set or aim for certain achievement which will grant them certain skills/stats or benefits..those which will take a long time to do but will ignite the interest of the players.

there is no summoning system/no pet system/no arena or chocobo system.and most important the battle regiment is so bad almost no1 uses it much beside when doing nm.without some kind of skill chain combo system or skill formation system in place the whole game do not give the feel of a FF game to be honest.

but ffxiv atm only allow end gamers to either aim for max lvl of all battle class which have basically no uses or aim for notorious monster which in turn give low rates for gears drop which also yield not much benefit.

basically i can say nm gears is only marginally better then standard crafting gears.and not by much ^^

seriously they should just redo whole system instead of adding stuff to present one heh.

as of now i still think ffxiv graphics is the best of all mmo i have seen.but other than that there is nothing much to compliment about ^^

and yeah i am seriously disappointed with the way SE do the guild system.

at first i tot company will be good but it seems like that system is too much for them atm so they basically making 3 npc faction company for large scale quest which is just another kind of leve.

where is the player run company or player driven air ship and guild house which they say will need effort of all crafters.

the present linkshell system sux even more.they dont allow ppl to be kick unless they are online and close to the linkshell leaders.first time i see a guild system that is so backward.i think even old mmo like ultima have better guild system then this.at first i think ok ls are just for chatting and they will implement company guild system soon which will be fun but after 8 months i given up interest.

frankly even if they add in real guild system now.there is not much new ppl to recruit any longer.the community feel is no longer there much and we are talking about one of the active servers for ffxiv heh

They failed at 1 important thing...

Chocobos

No rideable Chocobos in a FF game = FAIL 100%

That's all.

Really it wouldn't have mattered how fail the game would have been if we could ride Chocobos
