Just noticed this listed on the FFXI Website: [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
I must say I was expecting this to happen eventually, and it looks like it now has. I'm wondering though if this is just a push to get people to play FFXIV (which already uses the SE Account system).Originally Posted by PlayOnline
Well, as long as the conventional payment system is retained (all that SE has stated in the link given above is that the newer systems used by FFXIV will now be available for use as a payment option for FFXI seems to suggest the conventional payment method system will be retained) I'm not really that concerned by it, as I already have a SE Account (which I use with FFXIV).
Either way, yet another part of PlayOnline is to be disposed of.
