If there’s one feature that most console and PC MMOs lack, it’s interconnectivity between both versions of the game. The PlayStation 3’s The Agency is still undecided on the feature, but Square Enix has already made up their mind about it on Final Fantasy XIV, their latest venture into the MMO world hitting PlayStation 3 and PC next year.
Square Enix Global Online Producer, Sage Sundi, has told One Last Continue that both PlayStation 3 and PC owners will be able to interact with each other in the online world, and not one limited by region, but a cross-region online world, meaning truly worldwide servers.
Considering people may have the same name on different platforms, Sage has said that they’re trying to implement a name/surname system into the game to allow people who have the same name to play on the same server.
Square Enix is gaining a lot of cred in my book with this upcoming MMO. I can only wait to hear more.
