Final Fantasy XI players who use the Playstation 2 version of the game will see an increase to the minimum hard disc space required for the Playstation HDD from the current minimum of 10GB to 19GB come the upcoming June 14th version update. Players who have the appropriate amount of space will be able to update the game without any problems, but those without will not be able to update until the necessary amount of space is made.
Could this minimum space increase have something to do with the surprise announcement planned at this year's Vanafest? Or is it just in preparation for further version update content? Only time will tell, but until then, Playstation 2 users should make the necessary preparations before the update.
Want to give your impression of what this HDD space expansion might mean, or just want to talk about the announcement in general? Feel free to share your thoughts on the ZAM forums.
We would like to alert users of the PlayStation 2 version that the minimum hard disc space required will be increased from the current 10GB (or 8GB depending other factors) to 19GB in the Jun. 14, 2012 version update.
Customers who already have the appropriate space on their PlayStation 2 HDD will be able to update their game without issue. However, customers without the appropriate space will receive an error stating that there is not enough free space and the version update will not proceed. In this case, please secure the necessary space and try again.
Although the error message will tell you how much space you need, we would advise you to secure the appropriate space beforehand to make the version update process as smooth as possible.

Thank you for your continued support of FINAL FANTASY XI.
