It's not exactly the cross-platform thing. They were fine with it on XI, the real problem was Microsoft wanted players to pay their subscription fee through Xbox Live for a flat fee (and require Xbox Live on top of the XIV sub), and Square didn't want to give up their two-tiered subscription plan FFXIV Gils.
Microsoft wanted more money and to control the sub services, Square a said no because sub services FFXIV Gils were to be the same on every platform. The only thing I've heard is cross-platform yoshida Never brought up the payments , I don't believe you had to pay for live to play xi and Microsoft recently opened up cross platform with windows so it may come out soon now. It really depends on if Microsoft will let the game run on a third parties network now. Its cus of the restrictions on the xbox live system, why square said this wouldn't work with this mmo. no idea, :< but yes i dont see it coming to xbox anytime soon. it wouldn't be possible to let the game play cross with xbox and just pc gamers because the pc is already cross with ps3/ps4. so it's let xbox player play with all 3 or not at all. and how old is final fantasy 11 lmao. ms changed the policy so Xbox can not play cross with ps3 ps4. but wanted it for just Xbox and PC and like i said that would not be possible because the ps3 and 4 already share same servers as PC. so they either let Xbox share servers or don't have to game. Might look nice next to my postie moogle and my white and black Mage chocobos.
Lucky you.. I want that post moogle. Their no longer available. I want the standard one now but it's constantly sold out. Just Pre-ordered the Emerald one! Did you pay for it now or was it like heavensward where they charged you later on? You will be charged for it a few days before it's shipped out. At least that's what my confirmation E-mail said.
