Postby goggy » 23 Feb 2013, 00:48

Now look at the difference the between the ps3 and pc version.

You can see how outdated the ps3 really is now.

State the obvious?

8 year old tech is worse than new current PC tech in shock surprise horror.

I'm amazed they can fit a MMO that big in 512mb Ram.

However they should port it to PS4 tbh.

I'm not trying to state the obvious here. I'm just showing you the difference.

And tbh, unless you're using a keyboard and mouse for an Mmo, why bother.

Gamepad controls are just too slow and cumbersome.

Well, to be fair he said the PS3 version wasn't fully optimized yet, so it should be better by the time it's finished. It's never going to look as good as the PC version, but if it looks acceptable I'll be pleased - it'll be nice to laze out on the couch with a controller every once in a while, and the expanded playerbase afforded by the PS3 version can only be positive in any case.

Although I agree that they should definitely bring it to the PS4 and maybe even the Wii U if Nintendo would allow for the cross-platform play.

Playstation 3 version is only 75% optimised.

The main issue is the frame rate, if they can get it to a playable level then there shouldn't be a problem. If it stays like it is in that video though it just won't be worth attempting.

"You can see how outdated the ps3 really is now."

I'd call that stating the obvious. Making an observation at the game running on PS3 would have been fine, but you were taking a stab at PS3 for being 6-7 years old. Silly.

I played Final Fantasy 11 on the PC,and just couldn't get used to it


I then got the free FF11 Xbox 360 beta in OXM,and loved it to pieces because having a controller(and keyboard to chat),ended up staying with FF11 for 2 years on the 360



And,yeah,i think i agree,they should just hold out and stick this on the PS4 it's out in 10-12 months,and FF14 currently has no release date but i think they are planning on a summer release.

that video that was linked,the PS3 version doesn't look that bad TBH

Outdated tech? Sure. Outdated to the point it's horrid? Not really. Obviously work is still left on this and apart from the framerate the PS3 version looked pretty good and those who can, get used to the keyboard and controller difference. Looks a little late to be bringing this out on PS3 if they're going to be bringing out next gen consoles though but it's nice of them to stay dedicated to that system instead of jumping on the bandwagon.

Looks ok for the PS3 (decent for an MMO), looks like they are really trying with the gamepad (I must admit I prefer KBAM for these games). I will keep an eye on this for PC though. 8)

Wonder when the PS3 beta is.Think they should of brought this to PS4,instead.But wouldn't mind trying.Signed up for the beta,but square enix drag their heels.Would be surprised if FFX HD even made it this year.
