    Buying FFXI for PS2 used...

    My brother is going off to college and wants to buy FFXI for PS2 because he's a MAC user and can't play it PC...

    He has a really good deal on buying it used, but we're wondering how the playonline ID and password and all that would work... the seller says:

    "Basically you use the account that has already been set up with the provided playonline id and password - then you can either use the character that’s already there or delete it and make a new one. In either case you just use the existing playonline id and make a new character."

    ...but isn’t his credit card number and all that visible on the Playonline viewer? If he saves the ID and password, wont he be able to access my information once we start paying the monthly fee?

    thanks... for... feedback. we've never played ffxi on ps2.

    The seller probably will delete his CC info. If he doesent he is stupid. But then again im going ot call you stupid for saying CC info is visable. I would like you to find one internet site that once you type your CC# it will say it back to you. There is probably 1, maybe a russian porn site. Main point is only thing you ever see about your CC on internet is the last 4 #s.

    Anyway, Once you get it you probably type all your billing info/CC info. I dont think you can change the main name on the acc though(not a big deal).

    Once all your info is in oyu can login and play normaly (I would suggest you change the POL password at this point). Then, as he said you can use his old character (probably low lvl like 30? nothing impresive) or delete it and start new character.

    edit> Also make sure it comes with the game manual with all the CD keys in the back. You need them to make new content IDs and change some information.

    you definitely cannot change the main name on the account unfortunately. I tried to do that with my friend's account that he gave me after he quit (use it as a mule account now XD).

    Yea playing FFXI for ps2 sucks SE and Sony sold us out, i thought the game was ment for PS2 then PC gets it first and everything is made for PC players....cause like 90% of the players are on PC lol.

    Anyway the original owner can always get the account back cause selling it is not allowed, with ps2 you have no choice though

    Unfortunately, at least on my JPN PS2 version of ffxi, when changing payment methods, all Digits of the credit card show. So hed be smart to delete the CC information before selling it.
