So when the PS3 beta kicks off I wont be as bummed from not playing the PC version on the 22nd. I hope SE finds a way to get FFXIV ported to it. It would be nice, real nice to hopefully start the beta in Dec for the PS3. It just really comes down to how far along SE is with the game. If they start the beta in Dec that gives them 5 months from now to get it up and running.

I know we are all wishing (pc players excluded) that they will have the PS3 version ready for Dec and I'm hoping that as well. If they do have it ready by then, that's the only thing I'm going to get myself. That and some Hot-Pockets....
All i know is I'll be getting sick when they game comes out, sorry boss man no work for me.

You would think when SE figures how to dumb down the graphics to make it work on the PS3 it should be done pretty quick. Not sure if they will need to rewrite all the code or what ever they need to do. SE has worked with the PS3 before just look how FFXIII came out. I'm pretty sure they pushed the PS3 to its limits on that. I'm just surprised SE didn't see this coming. Maybe they did and put the PS3 version on the back burner to get the PC version done and on store shelves.

Why "PC players excluded"? I'm planning to play on PC, don't own a PS3, don't plan to buy one for a while (and wouldn't play XIV on it if I had one) and I still hope they release the PS3 version by holiday 2010. While I don't personally have anyone on PS3 I'm planning to start with, I know a lot of PC players do have friends who will be on PS3. I'd like to see them up and running as soon as possible.

I said that because the PC players will already be playing the game and don't need to wait anymore. :) I'm buying it for my PC also but when the PS3 version comes out I'll play it on that.

The game doesn't need to be "ported" to the ps3. The crystal tools engine was built as a cross platform engine that would work with all three platforms. I'm sure the only issue is that they are trying to get the game to work with large scale battles where you have like 20 players and 20 or more enemies. FFXIII uses the same engine and even though I haven't played it or even seen it being played I'm willing to bet there wasn't a problem with memory limitations because the game doesn't have nearly as large a scale of battles as SE is planning with FFXIV.

Basically all they're doing right now is probably changing their code to be less memory intensive.

Is there anyone besides me, that hopes the beta PS3 client will work after the RTM version is available? I'd rather not have to buy another copy of FFXIV just to play on my PS3. And yes, I'll be playing on PC on (or around) Sept. 22.

I know they're different. I'm hoping to get a beta invite for PS3 while I'll still play on my PC. After the beta, I could just put in my account info on the PS3 client and not need to buy another disk.

I have my fingers crossed that the Ps3 beta will not only start before the end of the year, but you will be able to keep your character that was created during the beta. I remember when beta tests hit the xbox360; you could keep your character since the game was already out and it wasn't really an advantage. Come on SE! PRETTY PLEASE!

I'm going to say you will need a disc to run the PS3. On ffxi for the 360 you need the disc to start the game even though it doesn't do anything. So in conclusion you will need a disc to start the game. How else is SE going to make 60 bucks off of you at one time. I agree i really do not want to spend more money on a disc to play the game but i will.... I need my new and improved crack!!!!

Whether you buy the disc or download the game digitally, you still have to pay the purchase price for the game (which is 50 USD, not 60).
