First Look At Final Fantasy XIV's Shortcut System For The PS3

As mentioned yesterday, Square Enix is outfitting Final Fantasy XIV with http://www.kotaku.com.au/2012/10/final-fantasy-xiv-wants-to-be-the-standard-for-mmorpg-console-gaming">a new shortcut system for the PS3 version (as well as the PC for controller use).

While keyboard and mouse controls rule for computer MMORPGs, the Tokyo-based game maker is aiming to have this setup become the home console standard.

The screenshots provide an easy to understand look at the shortcut set up for consoles. There are also new screens of the PS3 version's visuals, showing off the game's console graphics. Check 'em out.

    Looks ok but does it require a paid subscription?Cause that's a real deal breaker me as there are many quality MMO's that don't these days.

      What? SWTOR and EQ2 ?

        Yes those as well as Guild Wars 2,Lord of the rings,DC universe,Warhammer etc.and even the level 20 capped free W.O.W would proberly last me till I got bored.

          What? Paid subscription for gw2? Have you ever read any guild wars 2 post on kotaku before?

            They were listing the ones without paid subs.

    Like Final Fantasy XI (which I'm perfectly fine with paying monthly for), FFXIV will be/is pay to play. There's always the free 14(?) day trial, though.

    TP. I need TP for my bunghole

    Formatting fail. Do these guys ever proof read?

      Not the Bashcraft. Come on man. Just type it out and hit enter.

    Wonder if they patent using dumb description like "system for a console to be more accessible" how long it is before they start patent trolling when others adopt this new industry standard
