Yeah, although the Leves are still here, the important thing is that leves are no longer the ONLY questing/content option. There are regular "WoW-style" quests like delivering shit, crafting items, killing stuff, and some of them are multi-part quests as well.

And like Knightsword said, grinding monsters FFXI style is now a valid method of leveling as well, so you can just party up and kill shit if you don't want to quest and still progress just as well.
Knightsword
You don't even need to party up to level, the only places that require parties are dungeons. which are instanced. You can exp chain on even level and up monsters and easily get to chain 4 sometimes 5. Also if you log off in a sanctuary area (a zone's main camp or inn room) you get rested xp, which gives you a 50% bonus.

This instance was available in the Alpha. After playing it for a bit i'm genuinely hyped for FF14:ARR, it seems unbelievable but they're actually doing everything right this time.
Knightsword
I ran it several times, it was none stop action. One group of mobs after another, the only time we ever had to stop was when someone died and had to be rezed or run back from releasing (from the dungeon entrence). It took about 30 to 40 minutes to complete with an hour timer, but it never felt that long when in there.

Now you have all the control schemes available on a single system.
Though a 360 controller is suggested over the ps3 due to full out of the box support on the 360 pad. For FFXIV, if they got some real mmo UI designers they should all be equal, if not in favor of a keyboard setup provided the game has enough hotkeys. Otherwise get your controller working and have at it.
Crushinator
Yeah take Oddie's advice and just stick with PC. If you're running an X51 you'll have better performance on FFXIV than the PS3 vers, and you'll have access to better communication options (skype, mumble, teampseak, etc.)

The final version of the game will have controller support on both platforms, so using a PS3 or 360 controller on PC will be the way to go.
