Here's how I understand it:
Final Fantasy XIV debuted on the PC and the game was a train wreck. It resulted in very low review scores and general unrest from Final Fantasy nation and the legions of MMO fans out there. Square Enix even apologized and set out to fix the myriad of crushing bugs, glitches, and other major issues.
So apparently, they've done that. Or maybe they're still working on it, I don't know (I imagine it's a work in progress). But is this game still coming to the PlayStation 3 or not? I mean, at this point, does anyone even care? Don't just about all those who wanted to play it already have it on PC? And even if they're waiting for the developers to iron out the final kinks, won't they still get it on PC even if the title is released for the PS3? We're getting toward the end of a console cycle here, and a lot of console players will be looking forward to the new generation. To many, FFXIV might be considered a step back.
To be perfectly honest, I've always hated MMOs so I may be very much out of the loop. I'm just wondering what the fans think. I just can't imagine MMO followers waiting for it to launch on the PS3; I can't conceive of anyone doing that. The vast majority of MMO fans are primarily PC players anyway, yes? I dunno…I just think Square Enix would be better suited focusing their efforts on FFXV or something.
