    That is the current situation for PS4+Xbox in general. FFXIV has other considerations that are keeping it off Xbox right now that they are still working out.
    If you want to narrow the scope on cross platform be my guest.

    Also where is Blizzard saying that exactly?

    This is the quote I find.
    "We'll keep an eye on cross-platform possibilities on the consoles."

    So unless you got something more official than Blizzard's own twitter account. Going to call bullshit.

    I mean, its not like you can't spend 30 seconds on google and see nearly every discussion in the last year regarding issues facing PS4+Xbox cross play for games where devs are ready to implement it are always about trying to get Sony to agree. But whatever. The entire discussion got needlessly off topic to this thread.

    On topic: They are still looking at bringing FFXIV to Xbox but haven't worked out the issues yet with Microsoft as of a few weeks ago.

    I JUST googled it and came to a direct source. What the fuck are you talking about...
    I won't disagree it's most likely business political bullshit but we don't know anything in the background of the whole thing.

    You probably want to work on your reading comprehension before you respond to posts with nonsense, which is most of you recent posts in this topic.

    I'm done discussing it because the direction it went is not actually relevant to this topic, but I shouldn't have to tell you that since as a mod you should already know that.

    Well.. considering you're the one that brought up OW and Rocket league... sure put that on me. You said devs said no, and I see no message on it outside of Mojang (which is owned by Microsoft).

    Well, whatever. For FFXIV it's really up to Microsoft as that's the official message from Yoship. Cross platform play isn't easy though. Logistics aside, even the technical side can be problems. Windows 10 (UWP) store was actually incompatible with Steam due to back end reasons for Call of Duty. Don't know how it is for these situations as we're not privied with that info.

    Not sure if it would be beneficial to have an XB1 version developed at this point when Microsoft just announced the new Xbox coming in November (Xbox One X...what a name, lol). Part of me would almost want to think "It can't be that hard, Xboxes are simply low end gaming PCs", but that's a viewpoint of ignorance, really (I haven't owned a game console since the first Xbox, along with a Gamecube). I just don't see them tying up the resources in having the game on yet another platform (and it may rub some PS3 players the wrong way to see their platform axed and an Xbox platform added...even though there's been the free upgrade program going for nearly a year).

    Tbh I see an Xbox One version happening eventually with patches for Xbox One X.

    Personally think it'd be a good idea to get Xbox on there. Just have to wait and see the negotiations.
    The main thing that'd be a development issue is optimization (after porting everything) after wards. Asset creation is going to be the same between all of em.

    Confirmed, WHM are actually Green DPS. And in PotD, that's actually true.

    Guess they shouldn't have pulled before the healer was ready. That'll teach 'em.

    Saw a post on reddit about a fully geared DRK using nothing but flash throughout a whole dungeon run and his defensive cds when needed because a healer was not dpsing and had 40% overheal. When they asked him why he wasnt dpsing he said his job is to tank.
    I wouldn't have the patience the make a dungeon run that awfully slow for me but imho kuddos to the guy who did this no matter how passive aggressive this was. If that is what it takes to force a healer to dps in trivial content instead of standing afk waiting for the hots to tick then so be it.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comme...g_nothing_but/

    EDIT: also some of the community restored a little bit of my faith in people on twitter. Somebody twitted "so now that rdm has vercure can we call them bad for not utilizing their whole kit and healing?"
    To which the response was "RDM can heal whenever it does not need to dps. Which is never". I feel like a lot of healers who refuse to dps do not get this part.

    Meanwhile, reddit and the official forums will continue to water all the land with tears about their DPS queues being too long and people need to play more tanks/healers.

    I m a tank main myself so my queues will still be insta. That does not exempt the healers from not standing afk. Especially now with the removal of CS.
    When more strict healing mechanics are introduced I promise I ll stfu forever about healers needing to dps.
