Lovers, Bad News
has announced that their (to some) highly anticipated MMORPG for the
XBox, True Fantasy
Live Online is no longer going to be. For those who were looking
for a FFXI equivelent on the XBox, this is definitely a sad bit of
was hoping to capture some more Japanese players with TFLO to
supliment the almost complete lack of fantasy titles on the
XBox. I guess Microsoft realized the fatal flaw that they just
can't compete in certain genres. Usually, the genre in
question is anything that has the letters R, P, and G in it.
I wasn't expecting much from this title, considering the fact that
for MMORPGs right now, FFXI is king on the consoles and there are
far too many titles to name for the PC in this field. If
Microsoft wants to really capture some of the Japanese audience with
RPGs/fantasy titles, I think the real answer lies in the east.
In other words, Microsoft needs to try to lure some more Japanese
developers over to their side if they hope to succeed. I mean
who would know what to captivate the Japanese audience with more
than a Japanese developer? I think no one.
