    I thought it was sony that was the problem. Yoshida has said that he would love the game to come to Xbox One but all consoles have to be able to play with PC. Sony doesn't want the cross-play

    Neither does Microsoft since it was discussed some time ago that xbox players would have to get their own servers if things were to be considered, which is retarded.

    My letdown was the last few weeks leading up to the original release.I likely followed FFXIV more than anyone else on the planet,right from the very first screenshot and the Orange engine.I witnessed the entire thought process along the way from deciding on the engine and how it would be constructed so the employees had little downtime on learning the new engine,it had to be a fast and easy turnover.

    To save me from writing an essay on the entire process that went down and crossed over to FFXi as well,i will simply say that this game SHOULD have and could have been what i had imagined and at least 200% better than what it is.

    Imo the two biggest players Blizzard and Square followed the EXACT same mistake,they BOTH believed they had such a fanbase they could literally sell them ANYTHING.

    Then to prove how naive,dumb these top execs are even after the initial fail that was FFXIV and seeing how their fanbase was  NOT an easy pushover,they still TRIED to con the FFXI fanbase with an ultimatum,"we are closing down FFXI so join FFXIV now".it failed ...again,they did not see people leaving FFXI nor did they see new numbers for FFXIV,so a change of heart "we are going to keep working on FFXI".

    If you notice there is a trend,it is the $$$ and the top execs who are ruining gaming,their only care is HOW cheap can we make this game,how many corners can we cut,how can we raise our profit margin to the max.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I really don't see a big demand for the game on Xbox. BDO and ESO are on the platform as well as a couple other F2Ps and upcomings like Bless Unleashed. That seems enough. 
    Besides, E3 should be the reveal for the new Xbox consoles to release in 2020. The market is moving on from p2p mmorpgs. Even more so from ones released from the ps3 era.

    No, pretty sure x-box is unless something changed:

     The Kotaku article is waste bin material in this thread as Xbox leadership has completely changed since then.
    The Polygon article is fair but at the same time would Xbox really benefit from bringing over a very aged p2p mmorpg ecosystem to a platform that is about to be a gen behind their new one releasing next year? Seems a waste of resources for Microsoft as they are looking to move forward not backward. For console it appears to be staying on the PS4 and PS3. As it should.

    Times have most obviously change since the first talks of getting FF14 on the xbox, so if they still wanted it to happen it very well could. At the time it could have been Microsoft not being ready for the task, but now it's probably just "that time has passed", but who knows, maybe it will still happen someday.
