FINAL FANTASY XIV Extension, Shakeup

Square Enix announces a postponement to the release of the PS3 edition of FINAL FANTASY XIV and the indefinite extension of the free trial for the PC edition of the MMORPG (thanks Augur.DW). Word is: "Since the launch of the Windows PC version, we have taken a number of actions based on user feedback to provide them a better game experience including a major version update in late November. In addition, we have decided to extend the free trial period until after we can confidently present customers with a plan outlining a level of enjoyment that will satisfy both us and our customers." This forum post addresses this as well, and also mentions personnel changes, saying they are to "improve the service of FINAL FANTASY XIV." Here's more:

These members will make up the development team's new core-a core dedicated to ensuring we achieve a level of enjoyability that will more than satisfy our customers. Under a schedule of more frequent version updates, the new leaders and their respective sections will strive for continued improvements to FINAL FANTASY XIV service operation and development.

[Extension of the Free Trial Period]
As stated above, the newly restructured team's top priority is to bring about improvements to the game's enjoyability, and therefore we have decided to extend the free trial period until we can provide a plan that outlines a level of enjoyment that will satisfy both us and our customers. When we are confident that we have reached that goal, we will notify our customers immediately.

[Future Version Updates]
At present, the development team is putting the finishing touches on the previously announced version update, which is still slated for release in mid-December. In addition, there is one more version update scheduled for release before year's end. Details on the content and dates of these updates will be released in the near future.

I bought this game at release, played it for a couple days and quit.

The biggest problem for me is that there were no US servers. So even with a great internet connection you were lucky to have a 250 ping...a far cry from the 20-30 ping I have for any other game.

If you want to do business in a country, have servers in that country. That goes for US countries wanting to do business in Japan, and vice versa.
