Final Fantasy XIV Feels Surprisingly Good on PS3

During E3, we had a chance to swing by Square Enix's booth for a chance to play the PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Going into this, the biggest question on our mind was how would the controls feel? After all, Final Fantasy XIV includes the traditional hotkey skill bar commands. How can that be translated to the PS3's DualShock controller without feeling completely awkward? (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PS3)

Get for PC? It's a no brainer man since it'll be the better version.

Anyways, I already preordered this on PS3 and I can't frigging wait for it.

You can get mods for the PC that will be impossible to get for ps3 and you'll be able to use a controller either way. I'd recommend going PC if you got the power to run the game smoothly. And this is coming from someone that played FFXI for years on the ps2 and x360 and saw how PC players had a clear advantage with recast timers and tons of other features.

Also considering how well SE made the UI for this game the need for mods are far and few between, the difference will be less glaring for sure.

Oh and if XIV is anything like XI every time a new expansion comes out you'll have the option to buy an ultimate edition with all the current expansions for an extra 10 dollars so switching will be pretty cheap if you feel you picked the wrong platform.

At this rate, I think they'd be better off delaying it for the PS4 release. The PS3 fan base will be migrating over soon.

its still coming to PS4 in 2014.
Lovable  +   971d ago
You know this is what kinda made me worry. I might have to buy a separate copy for PS4 later on the PS4 cycle

I'd be nice if ps3 ps4 and pc players could play together.
InfamousHero  +   971d ago
They can.

Source? My ps3 and computer are in the same room, and I'd like to play with my brother

Dude FFXI plays on PC ps2 and x360 all at the same time and same goes for ffxiv, I don't have a source readily available but I've read it in producer blogs I would try googling it.

Me and my wife are huge FFXI fans played for over 7 years and we have been planning on playing one on PC and one on ps2 since launch, but it wouldn't hurt to do some research.

Here's a SE rep answering questions on the ps blog look at comment #17

I played the beta, and sadly the main character didn't had voice on him/her during cutscenes, can somebody tell me if this is this ment to be changed or not?
Lovable  +   971d ago
I bet there will be voices. We're in 2013 I mean come on lol
Tdmd  +   971d ago
It's an mmo. Isn't this to be expected?
Firan  +   971d ago
Uh.. Do you mean your PC or NPC main characters? If NPC there will be voices. If PC then no. PCs don't even have dialogue in cutscenes.
Blankolf  +   971d ago
OMG that's almost a deal breaker there and removes the feel to the story the only games i forgive this are neverwinter nights 2 and dragon age..
Firan  +   971d ago
It would be weird if you had a voice. Kinda breaks the immersion imo. They don't want to create a fixed personality in your PC because you are the PC.
dendenmooshi  +   971d ago
Is it confirmed that there'll be no cross play between PC and PS?
The_Truth_24_7  +   971d ago
I don't like 15 frames per second. The game looked like ran terrible on the PS3. Will definitely try it on the PS4.
