    I don't know if users here have played Final Fantasy XIV all that much, but I did. It was a confusing and exciting mix of failure and the final fantasy series. I don't know where they went wrong first, but I was very disappointed in the way the game played and how they strayed so far from their Final Fantasy XI roots. Well now Square Enix is trying to reboot the game under the name Version 2.0. Lets hope the game isn't a complete faliure. I know that they are canceling the free year trial and starting a billing period for PC users. They are also releasing a PS3 version, and this version will have a free trial (I don't know how long) Good luck Final Fantasy fans.

    I couldn't run it. No PS3 anymore either so I'll be missing this one out.
    They shoulda done a 360 version too. To this day FF11 is all my cousin plays on 360 and has been since it came out.

    I still play FFXIV, it's so much better than it was when it was released. Granted, I can't say it's a good game, but I'm definitely enjoying the hell out of it. I'm incredibly stoked for 2.0 if it delivers what it promises.

    I recognize how bad FF14 is/was, but the revamp looks great.

    I played FF11 since the day it came out, all platforms, even met my wife on there.
    Our linkshell went to FF14 and some love it, some hate it.

    I think it'll be fun once the revamp comes.

    Its not simply a case of updating the game. From release, the game has garnered almost 100% bad press and I think thats the issue that Square-Enix are going to have to work against. Its sure going to be an uphill battle for Final Fantasy XIV, but I certainly hope that it does manage to be judged well on its merits.

    it seems they're bringing new ideas is now putting them off course. i doubt ppl will be very unhappy about this decision. lets see what 2.0 brings but they seem confident too. i just hope there is just some way to play it free on the pc (like rs maybe)

    I appreciate the fact that they tried to make up for the game's complete and utter failure, but I think it is far too little, far too late. The damage has already been done; even if the game can be salvaged, the stigma of it's disastrous launch is going to haunt it for however long it lasts.

    Honestly, they'd probably be better just pulling the plug on the project and saving themselves the time and money. Put that towards some other, hopefully better games instead.
