    Pretty much, yes. They've said for a while that the PS3 could not / would not support multiple control schemes to reduce memory requirements. You have the crossbar controller setup as the sole control scheme, with a keyboard possible for chatting only.

    For FFXI, I primarily used the keyboard on the PS3 for everything (text, macros, movement.) PC is the way to go if I'm pro-keyboard, still, can't say I'm not disappointed.

    ------------------------------


    I'm all for PC if I were going for better graphics and so forth. But if I'm going for comfort, I'd rather not play in the office. And I'm not bringing my office onto my lap. I'll have to rethink this if I find the controller situation terrible. Obviously controller is fine for offline games, and games I use headset. Something about switching between keyboard and controller is messy and slow..

    You laugh but the logitech one for PS2 was the stuff when XI launched went through like 3 of those things.

    Played on PS3 next to someone playing on PC this past weekend. The PC version, obviously, looks way better. I like the inventory grid section and I WANT IT!

    There is a key bind map in the menu that I didn't really look at. I'm easy to please though, I played XI on PS2 and haven't managed to update my PC in FOREVER and I'm grateful to be able to play again.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you purchase the ps3 version of the game and created a subscription account, won't you be able to just download the PC client and log in with the same credentials later? In that case you have access to both. Or would you also need to buy the PC edition? I'm unsure if both would have separate registration codes or if it's only based off of your subscription account.

    If you don't have a 1.0 account and you want to be on both PS3 and PC you need to buy both edition and register your code under the same SE account

    Ah, understood, thanks Ratatapa. I beta tested the game on PC a little bit last night and it was beautiful. If a good PC is affordable I would go that route for the eye candy.
