PS3 "cross hot bar" interface

Intrigued by the reference to a "cross hot bar" interface for PS3 users...

Just speculating here but I have a feeling this will be a horizontal hot bar with like 4-8 icons and when you select one you can scroll up or down to select another 4 within a vertical hot bar. In other words, you could have 16-32 icons to choose from with only a few button combinations/"clicks" to get to any of them.

Do we have any more info or thoughts on this?

Need more information before I can make a clear opinion of it. I will say that the ps3 version better get full macro support, lol.

Edit: Have the macro system tied to the shoulder buttons as in how XI was.

I didn't play FFXI on PS2... were the controls good?

Interesting... let's hope the old wisdom prevails.

It's gonna be hard to go from an action-MMO like DCUO to a slower more strategy focused style of gameplay... but the atmosphere and art of Final Fanasy draw me in!!

So it seems like 4 sets of commands corresponding to shoulder buttons and probably 4 within each of those (cross, triangle, square, circle). Meaning 16?

Plus macros!

A lot more control than I expected on a console. Interesting.
