Totally agree. I haven't had the chance to play this game but will absolutely jump on this beta to experience how it plays on the PS4.

All I need is hands on confirmation that the gameplay is fun and that the controls work and I'll be a subscriber when it launches.

Now with news like this and more than enough advance notice, you would hope that Sony ensures that the servers, and PSN in general, will be able to handle a very significantly high number of "beta testers", as in ALL of them. We'll see...

Sony will have nothing to do with the servers being stable.

Question is how long will the beta last, and will it be more than just glorified advertising. A demo they wont use any real information from.

until the end of march. As what it will include, no info.

Might as well give it a try.

Doesn't really matter, all they really have to do is make sure the PS4 version is stable.

Smart move SE. Although kinda dumb at the same time seeing as the beginning of the game moves sooooo slow.
Abriael  +   106d ago
Uh no it doesn't.
Jubez187  +   106d ago
Abriael stop, I love this game too but you need to accept that there might be ONE flaw. This game starts off slow when you have to kill lady bugs with 2 skills, nobody can deny that with a straight face.

What MMO doesn't have you killing some non-hostile creature at the start of the game using only a few skills? Not like they're going to just throw you straight into Titan EX fresh out the gates, lol.

Hey, if you haven't watch AngryJoe recent release video about top 10 controversy of 2013. Than I recommend you to go watch him on youtube. In the video he mention about paying beta test game and it looks like Sqaure Enix is doing it with FFXV.
Abriael  +   106d ago
Umh no they aren't. No one has to pay anything to get in the beta.

The initial game wasn't a beta test, it was a failure. They gave every person that subscribed plenty more additional months free of charge for the re-release.

It does suck though for those that paid to realize everything's being wiped clean. I like the re-release though. I'm not going to pay a monthly fee though unless it goes down.

Can't wait to try this game. There's no way I was going to purchase FFXIV without trying it out first. Thank you so much SE :)

Try to join Sargatanas server if you get the full game or the option in the beta. I will show you how us max level dragoons roll.

If you can use a mouse and keyboard on it I will buy a PS4. If not I will wait for EQ Next. :p
Madderz  +   106d ago
There's an adapter you can get to use a keyboard and mouse on PS4, there was an article on here somewhere i'll try and find it for you.

EDIT: Here you go good sir

Man i cannot wait!! I bought a PC a few years back when this came out but it was a bit of a god awful game at the time, didn't run too well and i had a less than impressive graphics card!!

As long as things are all nice and smoothed out for this i'll definitely be getting back into this!!

Bit pants that PS+ users will still have to pay a seperate subscription, i thought they would have incorporated ps+ into it somehow. I forget how much it is from back in the day.

OMFSM. Get more freakin serves, if every single PS4 user will have access to it. Open Beta and the first week or so was horrible on the PS3 I couldn't access my players that I had on Closed Beta because the servers they were in were over populated and I couldn't log in.
