I haven't seen anything on here, but I'm sure it's already been addressed and I'm just missing it. Is FFXIV going to use a microphone, similar to WoW? I'm not a big fan of it, but it sure comes in handy for LS events... and would be preferable to vent or teamspeak with the PS3.
Also, is the mouse going to be a necessity? I don't know if the PS3 has or will have a mouse peripheral, but I **** sure hated using the mouse for all of the three days I spent on WoW.
