Square Resumes Limited Final Fantasy XI Shipments
Final Fantasy XI

Square has announced that shipments of Final Fantasy XI will resume in limited quantities. Sales were halted two weeks ago when all PlayStation 2 Broadband units were sold out, as the peripheral is required for playing the game. Square says that shipments will cease when the PS2 Broadband units become unavailable once again.

Square's PlayOnline server currently hosts 50,000 Final Fantasy XI subscribers in Japan, and Square anticipates a total of 300,000 by the end of 2002. Square's PlayOnline server problems have mounted 80-100 million yen in losses ($600,000 to $800,000 US). The Dengeki sales charts indicate that Final Fantasy XI has sold a total of 89,688 copies as of June 7.
