FFXI breaks even
Yoichi Wada, President of Square, announced today that Final Fantasy XI has nearly reached its break-even point. The estimated point was at 200,000 paying users, and the company expects to cross that threshold within the next two weeks. The original projection was the Square would reach this goal at the turn of the year, so this is somewhat promising to hear. FFXI has so far accounted for 12.5% of Square's sales in the present fiscal year and although this is a relatively small proportion, the company expects to continue profiting from monthly fees. Stay tuned for more information.
