Paladin81 Says the guy in the beta. My computer doesn't have an anywhere near good enough graphics card and isn't upgradeable and I can't afford to buy another computer so I have been waiting for 3 years to play this game at all. I would have been a legacy member if the PS3 version had been released. Anyway, this delay pisses me off even more. I love FF I love MMOs and PS3 needs a decent MMO. STOP DELAYING. Gives us extended beta 3 while you fix it. JUST LET ME IN!

If they said September, I'd still be cool with it. If I'm paying for this game monthly, I want it to be as good as it can be. So far I've been pretty pleased with my experience in beta, and if they need extra time to move it further away from 1.0 then I have no complaints.

I'm a little bummed that I won't get to play the game for that much longer, and it's probably not helping its image at the moment, but I'm glad they're at least willing to give the game the proper time and attention it needs. The first time around they rushed to meet a deadline, and it didn't work out so well.

Besides, this is more or less the final push before what is essentially the early release phase, and they're bringing in all the big stuff. I'm probably giving SE the benefit of the doubt, but at the very least, I don't see any opportunity for more delays after this. As long as the game shows up during summer (which is apparently still the plan), I'll be happy.

Early June sounds nice enough. Maybe I can give it a try since this is way after my classes end so I'll have time.

It's best that they take their time. I don't mind waiting a bitv longer for them to make sure things run smoothly.

I have not played FFXIV ver 1.0 but I always go by the edict games should be released when ready. From what I read on the first release that is not what they did.

@ john I'm not typically one to get caught up in these sorts of things, and while I agree in the grand scheme of things it's a short delay, you can't describe this MMO's situation as anything other than precarious right now.

There's really no other way to put it, the original release of Final Fantasy XIV was a huge failure. Now they've rebuilt the entire thing and are dropping delays in the midst of wide-scale layoffs at Square Enix? At the bare minimum it's worrisome.

That said, what I've seen of the game is very promising, but that doesn't change the fact that things could still go very wrong here and I think it's important to make that point clear.
