    Interesting Wii news

    Final Fantasy XI Producer Hiromichi Tanaka presented a keynote about future Square-Enix Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) games at the Game Developers Conference in Austin, Texas today. Tanaka stated that the Wii is not a platform being considered for MMOs at this time.

    "As for Nintendo Wii, it will be pretty difficult if you were to cross-platform for a couple reasons," Tanaka responded when asked about the possibility of a cross-platform MMO appearing on the console. "One is that Nintendo's currently not allowing different cross-platform titles, and as you know, the resolution differences make it harder for us to make cross-platform games. Currently we're not looking at Nintendo Wii as a platform."

    Tanaka did state that an MMO on Wii is technically possible so long as the console receives a hard drive attachment. Nintendo has made no statements about producing such a device for Wii.

    The only true MMO to appear on a Nintendo platform thus far is the GameCube title Homeland. The game was created by developer Chunsoft and saw a limited release in Japan back in March 2005. The other server-based online RPGs for GameCube allowed up to four players in the Phantasy Star Online franchise, costing approximately 10 USD per month for a Hunter's License.

    Yes we'd all like to see a game like that, but if he can, then why not do it?

    Bummer... Won't be seeing any major Final Fantasy on the Wii, only spinoffs. MMo's will make their way to the Wii, slowly but surely. I can feel it in my toes!

    there's been 12.5 final fantasys....and only 1 of them was an mmo

    but i doubt that we will get them

    ninty-crystal chronicles, which is hopefully a pretty good spinoff, i've heard decent thigns and the trailer looks sweet

    Too bad we wont see ff on the wii
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    I am a massive FF fan, so anything by Square Enix is pretty much fine by me.
    Anyway, thanks for the info.

    Meh.

    I played FF:XI and the first two expansions and I can say with certainty that whatever MMOs Squenix is peddling, I aint buying. And after the abortions that are FFX-2, and FFXII, I'm about one more awful game away from writing off the entire franchise.
