Skills was much quicker and easier, for me personally using. I can only comfortably reach 1-4 - perhaps 5 if I stretch -. On the controller I had access to PSO2 Meseta for sale 16 capabilities immediately, and the other 8 I believe with another button modifier (I think it was both triggers at once rather than one or the other), as well as being able to change to a different pair of 16 skills just by pressing a button on the D-pad. Does not really surprise me because FFXI was originally started on console then PC (in Japan), it was obviously constructed around the control because the keyboard controls were horrible, so I imagine despite the fact XIV release on PC original, they probably kept console controllers in head first while really making the PC controls not terrible.
I can really pull with FFXIV out of my experience and understand the great majority. In addition, I know that the PS4 has a user base that is bigger than Xbox One in regards to individuals who want to play JRPGs. It's not Phantasy Star Online 2 being Xbox/Windows 10 exclusive that I am concerned about, it is that Phantasy Star Online 2 is launching as a timed Xbox exclusive. Being an MMO population is really crucial to the success of it. Timed-exclusives are usually done for the sake of console sales, but I do not picture Phantasy Star Online 2 is going to be pushing console sales for a couple reasons, the vast majority of men and women that are interested in Phantasy Star Online 2 likely already have a PC to play it on after timed exclusive period is finished, and the console is currently at end of existence. I feel like they are damaging the launching population and popularity of Phantasy Star Online 2 for nothing.
So it doesn't matter whether the player base skews to people playing on PC it will have cross play between PC and Xbox, they will still be lots of players in the swimming pool. It's amusing that Xbox players have been begging for a long time to get some JRPGs like PS4 has plus they eventually land a fairly popular one exclusively and PS4 players are mad they do not get this 1 game after years of feasting on exclusivity for every JRPG released.I've not seen these insane PS4 players you're talking about. I am arguing from the perspective of a PC player that's worried about Phantasy Star Online 2 launching functionality, since it isn't starting on PC, and that is I think where the great majority of Phantasy Star Online 2s userbase is.
I mean that's great. My only concern is that, by being a timed-exclusive xbox one launching, it will hurt the launching of Phantasy Star Online 2 withholding it's PC launching, which is where I imagine (maybe incorrectly) that the majority of the playerbase for Phantasy Star Online 2 is. And they're doing this with no benefits (console earnings ) that timed-exclusive launches are utilized for.It's possible, but my encounter with FFXIV informs me that PC players constitute the cheap Phantasy Star Online 2 Meseta huge majority of their western playerbase, and on account of the PS4 userbase being considerably larger than the Xbox userbase this gen, I believe that big majority is going to be split even more in favor of PC for Phantasy Star Online 2 (when it comes to Xbox One/PC split).
