I doubt either will. I think I heard rumors that Old Republic was floating the idea but if they haven't confirmed it by now then probably not. Why would you want to get FF 14? It's a disaster on PC atm, to the point where they had to stop charging for subscriptions.
They basically admitted they released a piece of crap and now it's free to play until the PS3 version drops, or so I heard. I wouldn't give them any money for that nonsense. If MS decides to support in Live it'll be a horrible decision.
Nah, I've played a bunch of MMOs and it's good. The missions/quests are pretty basic but the game is different from all the other fantasy themed MMOs flooding the market. It also has a really fun PvP/PvE system. It's definitely worth a look for anyone looking
for a game to play online with lots of people.
FFXI worked well enough from what I heard but you are right about the patching thing. I know 360 users had a consistent crash in a specific zone and as long as I was playing it never got fixed. Shame really.
