I am tempted to pick this game up tomorrow and I know this is a PS3 forum but I was just looking for people opinons as it is a MMO and typing is a factor.
I was in the Beta on the PS3 but when I tried to play it the controls being mapped to all the buttons I was so lost and confused I could not enjoy it at all.
I have been a warcraft player since Day 1 so I know I am fine with keyboard MMO's.
Which platform should I get it on?
if you can all tell me your pros and cons - That would be great!
If you're used to KBAM MMOs, then PC is a no brainer. 1080p & HD+ resolutions, no FPS lock, better visuals (although the game is still ugly), better control method...
I played WoW since Vanilla, but quit last year. I bought ARR to try and replace WoW as the MMO in my life, but I just can't see it. Is the Hearthstone beta open to the EU yet? I'm dying to get my hands on that.
Yeah... PC is tempting. but Trophies sway me the other way lol.
No EU Hearthstone Beta yet. (I am dying to get my hands on it). I have been watching streamers at every opportunity.
The game has it's own achievements, which is better, in my opinion :)
In the PC version?
I'm so torn... but PS3 controls really did suck for me. I kept opening windows and got so lost in menus just trying to talk to an NPC or something daft like that.
PC hands down. Controls and such aside, it's just painful to play on PS3- headaches on account of the sub-30 fps and shoddy graphics.
I'm playing PS3 with a mouse and keyboard plugged in. Works a treat. Controller for movement and combat, mouse and keyboard for menus and chat. It's an awesome setup. It's a shame you can't set your cross hotbar to number keys, otherwise you could play it on PS3 controlling EXACTLY the same as PC version.
EDIT: Oh, and you'll need to disable quick chat, or typing wont use the shortcuts, it'll just chat straight off.
Let's to, it all depends on what your used to, for me since I've been used to controller all my life the controllers for XIV on a gamepad just came to me like 2nd nature but when I tried on PC I couldn't get used to it. So it not a matter of which one is better control wise more what your already used to or prefrence. Some people prefer mouse and keyboard, some prefer controll pad.
Graphics wise I'd say the game looks good for what it can do. I wouldn't worry about graphics too much since really most games you base on gameplay and if your judging a game based on it's graphics then take a look at XIII, Great graphics, not so many people liked it.
PS3 will have trohpy support which is something PC hasen't got, yeah I know PC got achivements but PS3 got Trohies and Achivements.
PC you can have 3rd party voice chat vs the PS3 no voice chat but PS4 version will come out.
So theirs the PS4 version you might want to conisder as well. When ever the Grahpics will improve for PS4 then a improve for PC.
So really it's all down to what you prefer, there is no real difference between the two.
