I'll chime in on this as well. I have been waiting for PS3 release since I heard about FFXIV 2-3 years ago and quit FFXI just before the level cap increases.

Never hurts to have more people on the friends list, and maybe some of us are playing the same games as we wait for ARR release
I think this is a good idea, but really we will have to co-ordinate a server to create characters on or this whole exercise is pointless. Just putting it out there that a "fresh" server may be the way to go. When the server names are released we should update the thread (or just message each other on the PSN) to make sure we meet up in game.
