Geez, sounds like we're going to be getting flooded with more games in the next couple months, so many releases seem to be planned around the same time.

Glad to finally get a date on this one though.

Whats it like? Have you played other mmos to compare?

Thanks! :)

the combat system is kinda turned based which turns people off, but i love it.

I played this game on release for the whole free month, how is it turn based? It's traditional MMORPG combat. The PVE stuff is almost exactly a mirror of World of Warcraft, GuildWars and all the good MMORPG's

In the end I stopped playing this game because it didn't support the M/Kb properly on PS3, it worked in most ways, but wouldn't allow me to use my number keys to initiate my skills. They have probably fix this problem now but I have chosen not to return to this game because on PS3 it's just way too choppy and ugly, this is to be expected of course.

I will deffo be playing this on PS4 again, my only concern is that how far behind I will be compared to other players.

pve kinda similar to wow, guild wars and aion.
controller is kinda easy to use, but some classes may use a lot of skills which makes it harder and harder to use controller, kb&m combo definitely better.
also note that ps3 players can only use kb to type, you wont be able to plus kb&m to play the game.
instances are not that great, but im sure it will improve sooner or later.
world events called F.A.T.E.S. are kinda oring and mainly used for people to grind exp.
characters can change classes which means that you only need to have one character. some skills are transferable, so my black mage might use some archer skills.
ps3 is very slow and takes a long time loading, used to have people complaining in raid dungeon speed runs because it takes too long for me to load the next screen.
on ps3 certain fates where you get to face behemoth and odin the bosses dont load up on screen because too many things going on. i nor ally just see a blank screen and cant even attack the boss.
after the 2.1 ver update ive only played a little so cant comment on pvp or anything like that.

anyway, try and play it on pc or ps4, ps3 version is lacking but good enough i guess.

in conclusion, ffxiv is getting better with every update. have lots of minor complaints but for some reason i still play it alot. maybe its just mmo addiction.

@hkgamer 'also note that ps3 players can only use kb to type, you wont be able to plus kb&m to play the game.'

That is false my friend, I ONLY used KB/M when I used to play FFXIV on my PS3.
