    Sony is shutting down their DNAS servers in March, which FFXI requires to be able to connect. Also, SE's supply of PS2 devkits to compile the files for PS2 to implement bug fixes are dwindling. They can't get more devkits, they've already bought every one available in the world that anyone was willing to sell. They can patch the PC client, but they can't make new assets (graphics and sounds/music) once the devkits stop working, so they're rather stop releasing new content and stop using the kits before they all fail. Xbox 360 support is also ending because Microsoft is shutting down the server that is used to connect to the FFXI servers.

    So partially, it's not SE's choice to keep console support going, if the parent companies of the consoles shut down their matchmaking and authentication servers.

    Assuming you mean "plan" have they actually said that anywhere?

    I don't have a link, but I believe they said they don't want to merge servers until after Rhapsodies is done.

    I really don't understand the opposition to playing on PC. PCs have HDMI ports and support controllers. FFXI also has really low system requirements. Consoles have held the game back since 2002, why continue to do so after its swan song?

    The move entirely to PC will kill a good portion of the JP population from playing the game, as PC gaming is nowhere near as popular as console and mobile gaming there. By decreasing the population, the risk increases of the game no longer being profitable, and thus them shutting it down completely. However, with the Sony-and-Microsoft-hosted servers shutting down, there is no choice unless they wanted to spend a ton of money making new development tools and writing a new client for a more modern console. There's little point in doing that with how profitable DQX and FFXIV are in comparison.

    I really don't get it, you could get a bottom of the range PC for peanuts and be able to play FFXI on it, there really is no barrier to switching when it happens.

    Yeah, I thought I remembered reading something like that myself. That's why I was wondering where the OP came to the conclusion that they had no intentions of merging them at all.

    PC gaming may not be popular in Japan, but that doesn't mean they don'y have computers. There's a difference between being a PC gamer and playing one game on PC.

    Out of order to be accusing SE of greed, especially since it has already been explained it's not SE's actions that are stopping PS2 + 360 support, Microsoft are closing 360 servers and Sony have only been keeping servers up as a favour to SE, it is literally the only PS2 game still with online capabilites.

    As for sitting back with a controller, the PC version is more than capable of being played with a controller.
