Final Fantasy XI on the XBox 360

I tested the current beta from FF XI on my XBox 360. After a long install, here is my summary:

– the game is not integrated with XBox Live. They use their own lobby system.
– the game is not integrated with XBox at all. No friends, no data from your Gamertag (i had to reenter all my account info, address etc, with the gamepad)
– the Game NEEDS a keyboard
– the grafik is not really next generation, it is ok, but every PC MMORG i have looks nicer
– no good sound system yet. The background music is just not very atmospheric IMO
– the UI is unreadable, even on my 8ft DLP projector
– the NPC text system that is designed to be cute is just annoying

Overall: If you have a PC, play MMORGs there. If you do not have one, buy one. If all that is not an option, wait for another MMORG.
