You won't get anything on PS3 until early 2013 at the absolute earliest. Honestly, it will probably get pushed back even further than that, though.

Mention anything about the timetable and a select few currently playing get their panties in bunch. Now...if you linked the timetable, you would have only been partially bombed by those who just don't like you for being honest.

I thought that the PS 3 beta was starting at the end of this year?

Edit: Here's the timetable. http://wdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/download/en/FFXIV_2.0_Outline_EN.pdf
And, a graphical representation: http://wdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/download/en/FFXIV_2.0_Roadmap_EN.pdf

Yeah, same here.

You can see on the first link that they say billing would start November - December of 2011, when it actually started this month. So it could be this time next year before the beta even starts.

Or did you mean you'll believe a PS 3 release when you see it?

Yep, exactly why I stopped being an active part of the ZAM community. I still lurk, but actually trying to be helpful on these boards get you nowhere.

So we'll get a PS3 release around the time the PS4 comes out; seems like a great longevity plan to me. >_>

The PS3 is on a 10-year model, I guess Sony wants to keep it that way.

-

A free client download for 2.0 will be given at the end of the year, and that's when PS3 beta starts. The actual launch of the PS3 will be early next year.

Given the delays of the patches, it's likely that 2.0 will be delayed, but I doubt it will be anything more than a few weeks.

While 2.0 will be rebuilding server structures and the user interface (and adding in a lot of missing features that 1.0 can't do it seems), the zones/world is planned to be rebuilt/renovated a few patches before that if I'm not mistaken.

Well, yeah, but the PS3 is already about six years old, and if FFXIV won't even be released for another year, then we could be looking at a situation where it comes out for a last-generation system with an ideal lifespan of three more years! XD

This has probably been said before, but when FFXIV finally blows up like FFXI did, it would be hilarious to see SE not implementing certain features due to "PS3 limitations".

The optimism runs strong with that one.

Didn't know the PS3 was running on the same 1998 technology as PS2...SE has a lot more problems if they have the only PS3 that's as limited as the PS2 to work with :D

I'll be sure to leave irony out of any posts I make here in the future.

Okay, full HD graphics, I understand, but was anyone aware that "fans" thought the wii controller was lacking "a 6.2-inch screen"? I mean, I am not a wii user at all, but I've never heard anyone say "I love wii, but my controller is lacking a 6.2-inch screen."

I don't really see the point of this post. PCs at the time of FFXI's release and on were more powerful than the PS2. Today's PCs are more powerful than the PS3 and the gap will widen further as new parts are released. If this game still happens to be around in 10 years and PS3 support is still going, it'll need to be made to run on a system that came out in 2006 in 2022. Console limitations compared to PC are relative to the time a console or game is out.
