Final Fantasy XIV PS3 UI shown in first screens

As Square Enix whips Final Fantasy XIV into shape for a PC relaunch and PlayStation 3 debut, it's shared the first screenshots of its console edition. How well does a complex MMO interface work on a joypad, and how do the graphics fare on outdated hardware? Use your eyes to look and you may just find out. "Knowing that everyone has their own personal tastes, not to mention the need to have a load-out that’s compliments the character and role you're playing in-game, all of the UI elements that you see in the screenshots can be enabled, disabled, and repositioned to suit your preferences," Square Enix said in a post on the European PlayStation Blog. "Menus are also simple to navigate with the command you're looking for being only a few button presses away." Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is coming simultaneously to PC and PS3 in 2013, supporting cross-platform play. Look, here are the five first PS3 snaps:
