The number one most important thing is the game is basically built. All the major details are worked out and now they are in the final stages of Alpha Testing, fine tuning things before release the beta testing.
You have already given SE all your suggestions for this game both directly and indirectly through playing FFXI.
The Sony Press conference said "FFXIV would be released first on PS3" if taking in context of SE current MMORPG plan, it'll come on later on PC and Xbox360.
SE is having an E3 press conference later today so all the juicy of juiciest info should be coming out shortly today.
See you in Eorzea.
