So very happy for this. I'll be getting back on in an hour here. I've loved it so far, and will definitely be picking the game up to give it a full month's try.

I've been signed up for the beta for ages for both ps3 and pc to increase my odds but they just don't like me. Looks like I won't be playing it till its official release.

No no, the Phase 4 beta starts before the actual game releases. Which is open beta, and all character data will transfer to the full game form that. :]

Unlike this phase, where your characters get deleted.

Your unlucky a friend of mine managed to get 8 codes. Sad thing is one his friends ended up using 2 of his 8 because they botched the registration process :/. Talk about bastards

I am so disappointed I didn't get into the PS3 Beta. I managed to get into an earlier Beta or Alpha for the PC, I can't remember and it was really enjoyable.

Even though I already have this for the PC, I will most likely get it for the PS3 as well. This will give me the option to pick which platform to play it and carry on from where I left off just in case a family member decides to go on my PC or PS3.

Is it just me or does FFVIV remind anyone else of SAO O_o

No? Except that it's an MMORPG.

I have really enjoyed the Beta so far.

Playing on both platforms, but I'm genuinely blown away by how well the PS3 handles such a full-on RPG experience.

I play with Dualshock and wirelss mouse / keyboard combo on the couch. Works seamlessly.

Won't put too much effort into Phase3 though if they're wiping char data.
