Hiya guys. Been taking a break for a while but I found something....interesting while browsing the SE merch store. Seems like they released an anniversary shirt from the game. The only caveat is that it's ridiculously expensive for a shirt. Check it out below. I think it's worth discussing that they expect fans to buy this. I'm sure some people will but it kind of seems ridiculous to expect people to shell out this kind of cash for a shirt.

Don't apologize. Charging $55 for this is a worthy topic of mockery discussion.

I enjoy the humor in this, because honestly their most common buyers of said T-Shirt will be the people spending $60+/month on characters.

However, just to let ya know I'm one of those rare single boxers that's still left spending $18.95.

Not to mention that last I checked, SE was the exclusive provider of FFXI content IDs- I can't buy one somewhere else. But I can get T-Shirts damn near anywhere with better artwork and cheaper than $55.

People pay for brands, and buying an "official" FFXI merch is what SE is really selling. Doesn't matter if it was toilet paper or a real life Masamune. It will sell because it says "FFXI" on it. They just decided to do a T-shirt this time. Someone could print these exact same T-shirts and sell them for 5$ and nearly nobody would buy it. It's just business at the end of the day, but just pointing out a funny double standard.

The issue with the $55 shirt, is the shirt before it was $28...

I really want to get this one re-printed somewhere, and Id pay $55 for it. Famitsu made about 100 of them for some type of magazine campaign back in 2004.
