Final Fantasy XIV Alpha/Beta Testing Letter

Yoshida, a.k.a. “Yoshi”, recently released a letter to the fans, giving information about the Alpha test for FFXIV 2.0, as well as discussing the beta test for both the PC and the elusive PS3 version. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PS3)

Is the Alpha test only for the current members of FFXIV?

No, but it's Japanese only. Phase 2 alpha test will be worldwide.

Awww, man.......it's SOOOO nice to hear words about the PS3 version. I am PRAYING to the gaming gods that I get in this beta. I bought FF13 on launch night, and before I even fired up the game, I went online and registered the FF14 beta access application that came with the game. The deal at the time was, FF13 buyers were getting priority.........I wonder if, with basically all new people running the FF14 show over there, they are still going to honor that deal? That was a publisher promise, it wasn;t from the developer. I think most people forgot about this, FF13 came out SO long ago. I don't think people are going to hold Square's feet to the fire on the FF13 day 1 purchase= FF14 beta access deal they made with the gamers.

I hope Square does honor it though, because without playing this game first, there's no way I can decide if I'm actually going to pay a subscription to play a game for the first time in my long life of gaming.......something just a year or so back, I swore to myself I'd never do........but the new FF14 Realm Reborn trailers.........damn. No old-school FF fan like myself can deny it at least LOOKS like it's AWESOME!!

Larry,
You'll be happy to know that they ARE honoring this. I'm not sure the exact details on this, but you will have to re-apply for the PS3 beta test when it comes out. I presume that during this application, you'll enter in your code that you received with FFXIII.

I don't have the link, but there was definitely and article where Yoshi confirmed this, and also said that people using these codes will be receiving beta priority!

I unfortunately have long since lost that code lol.
