The PlayStation 3 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will feature an all-new menu set up specifically tailored for consoles.
While the name and brief details of what is known as the “Cross Hot Bar” were revealed several weeks ago, Famitsu now has even more information on the PS3 version of the upcoming MMORPG.
The PlayStation 3 version of the game, which is set to be revealed this month, will allow players to choose commands via the DualShock 3’s d-pad and shoulder buttons. The d-pad corresponds to four horizontal line sets at the bottom of the screen. Commands can be assigned to each direction on the d-pad (ie, up, down, right, left). By pressing L2 and R2, you can swap through your different groups of commands. Up to eight commands can be selected via the d-pad and through the use of L2 and R2.
Similar to the PC version, you can also set your own macros. By pressing L2+R2 you can cycle through different “palettes.” Eight commands can be assigned to each palette. That number won’t be common for every class, however, each class will have the ability to register sets individually.
Each command can also be made into an icon with selectable colors. The main commands will be set up in a menu similar to the PS3’s own XMB.
