It currently still is free to play. No one know anything about the PS3 release other than SE still is adamant about it coming out when the game is ready.

You still have to purchase the box for the game for the serial key, but once you purchase the game, you don't have to pay any monthly fees (yet). There hasn't been any new news on a PS3 release though other than it's happening at some undetermined point. The game got indefinitely delayed from its original March 2011 release due to the game being in an unsatisfactory state when it was released on the PC six months earlier (check the reviews from pretty much every site), and it'll be released when SE feels like the game is as good as it should be.

How is the game now anyways? Is the interface still as bad as the reviews said or is it better?

The game is still pretty bad, but it's getting better. There's a mega-patch coming by the end of September that's going to be bringing in a lot of content/changes. The interface isn't much better though, but it's a lot more responsive than it was at launch (at launch, it would take around ~5-6 seconds for any action to be performed, whereas now it's about ~2-3).

Actually... the other day checking the GameStop releases sheets they have at the store, noticed They have FFXIV PS3 version for the list of november 2011 releases. They make those lists based on when the products are arriving to store based on distributors, so "maybe" the PS3 version is indeed scheduled for that month.

No. It's just a placeholder date. When PS3 version gets announced, you'll know it'll be posted everywhere. GameSpot, Kotaku, the forums of course. They'll probably even have a special PS3 trailer, not to mention open beta testing for the PS3 version which they also postponed.

Realistically, given the pace the changes are coming, I'm thinking the end of this year at the EARLIEST for beta testing and March-April 2012 at the EARLIEST for a PS3 launch.

Pretty much this. SE said there will be two phases of testing for PS3 just like there was for PC. This of course is subject to change, but still very likely.

Being a part of testing could prove to be exciting if there are still people holding a candle for the PS3 release and increase their chance of staying around, but that isn't likely to happen until the game is well worth playing. In my opinion, PS3 will be coupled with the first expansion so I don't see that happening until well into 2012.

Those numbers are as made up as Tammy Fay Baker at a religious clowns convention.

Gamstop's computers require a release date before a game can be entered into their system, so of course they can't leave March 2011 as the release date since that came and went, so they pick a random future date to keep the game in the system.
