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 How well does a complex MMO interface work on a joypad, and how do the graphics fare on outdated hardware?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:

Buttons galore

      i was excited about this game a few years ago, but i'm not sure if i can see myself playing it anymore.

      is the game playable using a 360 controller on the pc? i could always output that to my tv i guess?

          I picked up 13 on the cheap and probably dropped 40+ hours into it. I am looking to do the same for 13-2 when I can get it for like $20 or less. Not amazing games but not bad.
