Square Enix is trying to get players back into Final Fantasy XI by helping them reactivate their old accounts. At PAX East in Boston, the company has a tiny station next to its giant Final Fantasy XIV showcase where someone will use your original email or other info to try and perform some internet archeology.

Final Fantasy XI welcomes back players with special 11th anniversary promotions. No it doesn't. Just give it up, Square Enix. You made a much better game, and now everyone wants to play that. No free activation of old accounts from now until December 23 and other special activities are going to change that.
