    FFXIV's Survivability

    I'm starting to wonder if FFXIV will be able to stay afloat the upcoming year after its release.
    I've done a bit of research and it seems the following are scheduled to be in their final stages of completion:

    - Highly anticipated Diablo III
    -Fallout online (MMO)
    - Guild Wars 2
    - Star trek online

    Not saying these will 'kill' FFXIV but do you think sales will be affected by the release of these games to a point. My concern mostly is Diablo III its had a lot more advertising time and i think atm is more popular than FFXIV in terms of hype.

    i know many who will play both but i know alot more who know of FFXIV but said their going to stick with Diablo.

    What do you guys think?

    I think FFXIV has it rough. Good luck FFXIV!

    Everything is meh, apart from Fallout Online. Star Trek will be popular, but it won't hold a huge online base. Guild Wars II will be a snooze fest a month in like it's predecessor. Diabolo III, eh...

    I don't think Diablo III is in the same genre to necessarily compete... Also, I don't believe FFXIV has even begun to be advertised outside of immediate news circles.

    I'm particularly worried that FFXIV's fourth expansion won't come out soon enough, because by then it'll be 2012 and the world will have ended. What does everyone think?

    WoW exists and FFXI is still alive.

    Try again for another stupid speculation thread when it contributes nothing to the discussion about the game beause there's little to no info available yet to even compare it to other games.

    Interesting because i'm not comparing the game to anything nor speculating anything
    Try again.

    anyway, Im talking about could FFXIV be hurt by these upcoming games speculating is saying it will which i did not say. Valid question

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    Diabolo III doesn't even seem to be an mmo...think of it like demon souls where you can meet up with people to do quests. At least this was the definite impression I got when I tried it.

    The only way to answer your 'valid' question is to speculate on the MMO market 2+ years from now. It's like asking if two years from now a lethal tsunami of epic proportions destroying 90% of Japan's population will hurt the FFXIV subscriber base.

    Questions are only valid when they can be answered. So no, not a valid question. Also why only restrict it to videogames? Perhaps a rainy day will hurt FFXIV. Perhaps an asteroid will wipe out humanity. SPECULATION!

    Online games and MMORPGs in general are much more accessible and popular today than it was back in 2001 so without a doubt, with the help of its name it'll stay afloat for a loooong time.

    Diablo, Fallout, Guild Wars....star trek? They don't directly compete with each other. Saying "Diablo will kill FFXIV" is rather silly.

    What do we have in hand so far?

    1. More experienced SE.

    2. "First" true current-gen MMORPG for consoles and a console that is completely online-capable (people had to buy a HD addon to play FFXI back then)

    3. Name.

    4. So far, a very promising game.

    Considering all these I don't see why FFXIV would "fail" or "die" in a year. Speculations like these are no different than 12/12/2012 stuff.
