According to a report on C&VG's website Final Fantasy XI is going to require the xbox 360 hard drive to run. This could definitely be a blow to MS as they have recently stated that xbox 360 core owners will not be missing out on any games due to the lack of a hard drive.

False alarm, its just a rumor. Although it wouldnt be surprising to me if it was true, the hard drive is very important to ffxi.

a blow? very few cores will be sold, or made for that matter.

and anyone who buys that ancient craptastical game thats been on ps2 and pc for ages, needs to get taken to the cleaners for $100.00 for the hdd anyways.

i thought it was confirmed already that it is required to have a HD. i thought it was needed to have the HD for any MMO. just like deftech said, 85% of the 360s being made are the premium package and the other 15% are the core package so i dont think its going to be an issue.

yeah it was confirmed, thats right.

IF the fuggin game required it for the ps2, square isnt going to remake it so it doesnt need it for the 360.

and how many people that own the core will buy the game anyways? 2% of the 15%, lol

fug it

oh and let me add....

ANYONE who wants the game knows it will cost them monthly....or should tongue.gif

those types of people will not be bothered when they find out they need the hdd. It was to be expected as thats how the game was made.

If you can afford broadband, 50 bucks a year for live, and 15 bucks a month for FFXI, you can afford a hard drive.

you dont need to have live to play ffxi online so lets just say it can work without the hdd (for argument's sake) then your statement makes no sense. I would only have to pay $15 monthly and then say fuck the HDD and Live. Thought i'd just point that out.

Shit its not like anybody is gonna buy the game anyways, so im done with this topic dry.gif

Please MS stop this Core madness! Its waste of time, and doesnt make sense in the long run. Even casual gamers like to think theyre getting more for their money too.

ok first of all the game is only 2 years old and we waited like 3 years for grand theft auto to come to xbox didnt we and we still play that right? thats what the hell I thought.

second of all you never know maybe they will release ffxi for xbox 360 with chains of promethia included and possibly the new expansion or perhaps you could download the expansions via xbox live. so you would be all caught up with the pc version.

Besides this game and guild wars owns all right now.

as for the core bundle its pretty decent for people who wont play very often lots of parents will choose that over the 400 dollar version you better believe that. especially with these huge online possibly in store bundles that only save u 20 dollars coming out left and right.A lot of people would probably choose the core system and upgrade to a hdd and wireless controller later on. Especially since the first shipment of 360s could have problems. the fact that the dvd drives or water cooling might have problems will have me getting the 1 year protection plan.

I think this is awsome. I was worried about games getting crappy from not using the HD. Even though this is a rumor, I fully support it. If cheap bastards don't want to pay for a HD then fuck 'em. Make games for people that care.

It's the new 'hottest rpg' that people play. Just like Diablo2 back in the day.
