    Square Enix: Why does JP get a free trial but not NA anymore?

    I have recently discovered that FFXI in Japan still offers the free trial: http://store.jp.square-enix.com/item/SEDL_0003.html?_ga=1.78693842.732631240.1492181265

    Why does NA (and maybe EU too) not have a free trial anymore? Free trial keys have been unavailable for many years now.

    Why?

    Has that ever not said:

    Thanks for your interest in the
    FINAL FANTASY XI Free Trial.
    Unfortunately, because demand for the game has been incredibly high, we have filled our current allocation of access codes.

    We will be adding more codes in the next few days, so keep checking back for your chance to play.

    indeed you are correct, i shoulda clicked link directly.
    However looking at the japanese page, its quite possible they've run out too, their site says 2011 the stock was issued, so they might not have updated it

    Songen: The EU page has been out of keys for the longest time.

    The JP page is not out of stock, it says "in stock" (在庫あり).

    should have wrote the whole thing mate
    在庫あり (2011年10月20日)
    It was added in 2011, same as when it was added for EU/US users. doesn't mean its actually accessable, they would have updated the new stock on the japanese website if they had added any new stock numbers.
    Since that stock is ment for japanese clients, perhaps alot of japanese don't waste their time with free trials and what remains is the exact same stock from 2011 (Which is designated for the japanese only and only decreased by a little from those who used it)

    Just goes to show how much english players waste SEs time by only getting free trials rather than the actual account. I am curious how many actually make a account from the free trial when its over
