I would like to have two accounts, so I can play on both platforms (here's hoping). I plan to pre-order the CE to start on 09/22, but I don't think one of my friend's PCs can handle the game, so he will more than likely start in March on PS3. We've already talked about keeping two jobs static. If it turns out that we can keep them static, then I will try one or two of the other jobs. However it works out, we have tons of new stuff to do/see/play with; I think I can stay occupied. I'm not concerned with rushing to do anything early on. I mean, it's brand, spanking new. I think I have a little time to goof off... ^^
As for getting to endgame, a quote about FFXI:
