Well, and I'm just speaking somewhat objectively here, the main complaint is not so much that they don't want to wait (They don't, but that's not the main complaint); it's that they wanted to be among the first people to play.
That's one of the things I've been looking forward to about XIV. Even if it turns out that I don't like the game 3-4 months down the road and I quit, I can say that I remember when the servers went live, the first time someone hit the "level cap", assorted glitches that accompany a new game...
Not only do PS3 players not have that, but if people were planning to play as a group from launch and even ONE of them is on PS3, then the PC players will have to march on without them and come back for them later.
It's just like a Christmas present.... Sure, most people would be glad to get a brand new PS3 (or whatever) for their birthday... but if you give them a used one that has been opened, played on, and returned, the magic isn't there.
Sure, it's still new to YOU, but the fact that someone else has used it just makes it seem less fun to many people.
And that's usually enough for people to say "If I can't experience the game from the start, then I'll go elsewhere instead of waiting".
