I think the box should indicate that it's a MMO, also I think lately it's becoming more and more neccesary even for the average consumer to research every game before you buy. Too much stuff like SWTOR, Dragon Age 2, original FFXIV, FFXIII, Diablo 3 which I don't think provide the level of quality they would have you expect. I don't think it releases this summer, looks like beta still. http://ca.ign.com/articles/2013/05/01/final-fantasy-xiv-a-realm-reborn-launches-this-summer Hoping they get done soon, aren't they using some of Nomura's versus dev team for XIV now to help with the relaunch?

amen to that. i stopped buying games that aren't a "must purchase" for me sometime in 2011. i support the games that i really look forward too, but for everything else, i wait for a price drop. IF that "price dropped game" exceeds my expectations and has a sequel, i will buy it on day one.
impatiently waiting on versus xiii... EDIT: not so much anymore... (4/28/11)
I would ask who is stupid enough to buy a subscription MMO on a console on which it will run like crap.
Im positive they're testing it more than once on the console so it will run better. These beta tests arent there for nothing. I will subscribe in the first month to try it out. The only thing im sceptical about is the battle mechanics. It looks too monotonic like your regular MMO.

I applaud the new director/producer for how he's keeping fans updated on FFXIV. I'd love to show my support for his efforts but I don't have that kind of time anymore. FFXI was the last MMORPG that I could dedicate my waking hours to.
