3. PS3 goes to hell in large FATEs. Animation stalling(but skills still useable) and rendering priority is bad(mobs load last). The former applies to PC too.
5. No idea if you can put an SSD in a PS3.
1 and 2 Im not sure about.
As a former PS3 player, I say that the textures are bad, but the playing experience is excellent while outside of large fates. Very little lag in light parties and in dungeons, even when adds appear though it can be slightly rough.
