The PS3 beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn reveals the ability to use keyboard and mouse like on PC, while server transfers have been opened for former players.
I'll definitely be hooking up my keyboard for communication... but I felt the controller was working out for me pretty well. Felt very similar to FFxi's gamepad controls. Really looking forward to playing some more of the beta tonight.
oh yeah, the cross action bar is the best thing invented since Nutella lol. I'm actually using my 360 controller on PC more often than not.
i need to get a keyboard. I had a keyboard playing ffxi on 360 but lost it :(
@crystallis: there's a very cheap one by logitech that works wondeers because it stays on your lap perfectly, can't remember the name but it's like 20 bucks. Edit: remembered it, it's named K120
cool, thanks for the heads up. Anything you can remember about besides the name i can recognize it with?
I like using my ds3 on my pc rather than 360's controller
It's good being back in the Final Fantasy Online realm. It has a certain " a place where everybody knows your name" feeling.
I felt the same way...
Anyone can tell me how much a lone player can manage in this game, I want to try it but I am not exactly a team player, which I know is ironic for an MMO. Damn I need to get into the beta.
Almost everything, it's very solo-friendly, besides dungeons. And even then, there's the duty finder that puts you in a group automatically for dungeons.
oh that sounds awesome, I hate having to make a party or look for people or well talk to people online so this works well for me. Thanks for the reply
Still waiting for my code from square enix. I really want to get playing this. Buying for the PS3 then Buying it again for the PS4! I loved playing Final Fantasy 11. Hope this one is as good if not better then. Hated partying for 6 hours straight to get like 2 to 3 lvls lol But it was fun none the less.
Seems like it has the potential to be better... seems less full of "grind to insanity" type content and it's amazingly pretty. I played a mage to lvl 10'ish and a Lancer to lvl 5. I had a blast the entire time.
Same here in both stances: will get it for ps3, and later on, probably on ps4 as well. Also waiting for a chance to join beta. On topic though, I rather stick with my ds3, but it is good news for those who like mouse&keyboard better. It seems to me that they are getting everything right for the ps3 launch!
I used a logitech netplay http://www.amazon.com/Logit... for FFXI. Loved it. It's a shame they don't make it for the PS3.
It wont work on the PS3? I thought any USB item worked on PS3? Is it just the brand?
There I go assuming again. Haven't tried it but I didn't think a PS2 controller worked on a PS3.
Not all functionalities from every USB device work on PS3, for instance the advanced keys of my old Microsoft reclusa keyboard don't. The keyboard itself works, but what's not default may not.
I found the keyboard SUPER helpful for FF 11. I bought the cheap Logitech one just cause you NEEDED it for console play when partying with people. Makes chatting and Macros a whole lot EASYER lol.
Now if PS4 games supported a keyboard&mouse natively :) That would just win.
i have a extra ps3 code, the first person to pm me with proof they have a ps3 can have it
