I'll wait when FFXIV will become free-to-play =))) I really don't see it like 144$ per year game. Can't tell that I am glad about that, though.

@Gemuarto This is what'll happen.
It will become Free-to-Play but only will be available for PS+ users or Square Enix will let it die and eventualy end like Defiance.
I think they will never let this game go completly Free-to-Play.

@Epic yeah, I think it will never become free-to-play.

The problem is that I didn't enjoy beta so much as enjoyed FFXI or Phantasy Star On-line. For me, FFXIV looks too cluncky, too PC oriented, too outdated. Especially when something like TC's Division on the horizon. I want more smoth experience =). Don't tell that it's garbage, it's pretty solid, but outdated. In some way, from time to time, it really looks like f2p, generic and developers was very lazy.

I got to DL the Spelunky demo w/o having to type in my password, that was the highlight for me. The game itself made me wonder how people buy these things yet then complain about iOS games. Nothing wrong w/ the game, just couldn't imagine paying $14.99 for it. Though it would be a good time killer on the go I suppose for 1/3 of that.

Yup, I have to buy that one. Skipped over it on Xbox 360 and now I'm kind of glad I did, it's the kind of game I'd rather play on a portable system.
