You do realize that playing on PS3 does not in any way prevent one from having access to voice chat, right?  I run a vent server to communicate with friends, and I do not play any games on the computer.  Also, the game is being built around DX9.0c.  They considered DX10, but decided against it due to potential market penetration.

Voice chat should be integral though. One thing I like about FFXI on 360 is the fact I can have party voice chat. Sure it's not built-in for the actual game, but it runs overtop anyway, so that fixes that. I would not want to use two machines for one experiece unless absolutely necessary. Were this a 360 release, I might consider it. Being that I have a choice between PC or PS3? I'll take the one more likely to offer a full experience.

If you were on 360, you still wouldn't be able to communicate with the rest of us since we'd be on Vent, and not Xbox Live voice chat.  Really wouldn't change the situation any.

Well, regardless, the 360 did offer the built-in solution, which I prefer.

Plus you, Ross, and I used to play that way all the time. :P

"All the time" was like, a week or so.  It certainly was a hilarious time, trolling Lilgirl.

FFXIVCore has some translations from Dengenki.  I usually stick to Eorzeapedia, but they're falling behind in their coverage.

So drama has broken out over FFXIV with the admin Zyuu over at FFXIVCore.com having been caught trying to sell beta keys.  It's fucking hilarious and I am enjoying the drama thoroughly, but more importantly, it has basically been revealed that the beta for FFXIV is supposed to start in the early part of March.  Zyuu is trying to play damage control, and Square likely is not going to give that site beta keys.

Just a heads up.

They did promise something to do with FF14 at the XI Fan Fest this month, so I'm guessing that's definitely related.

FYI, the beta application page for FFXIV has been updated today.

Quote
    * If you have received a FINAL FANTASY XIV promotional code for registering FINAL FANTASY XIII on the Square Enix Members site, please use it to apply for the beta test.

    * If you have already applied for the FINAL FANTASY XIV beta test but would like to apply for the PlayStation 3 beta with a FINAL FANTASY XIV promotional code, please be aware that all previous applications will be invalidated.

    * The promotional code will also be required to obtain the FINAL FANTASY XIV secret in-game item, so please hold on to your code until the game’s official release.

I like the pictures but all I see is squiggly lines for the info :-P
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Official site translation will likely be up in a few hours.  Anytime Famitsu gets a big news update, the US site gets updated in the evening hours.
