Square Enix has begun allowing users to sign up for the Final Fantasy XIV Beta today - the same day Final Fantasy XIII launches in Japan.
Sign me up! Hope it's a big improvement over 11.
just signed up, happy that I signed up early
-Tester selection will be based solely upon the content of applications. Selected individuals will be contacted via e-mail. * Priority will not be given to applications based on order of submission. So getting in early doesn't mean anything.
If you are a current FFXI player and have your ID it's like a free YES to getting in. They want XI players on this beast ASAP lol. Lucky me I've been a player of XI for 6 years, so hopefully it will increase my odds. :)
I signed up and I'm wondering when they are actually gonna start it. I would imagine it's soon if they are accepting applications. Now the only issue is finding out if my PC will run the game. I don't really care if I can run it at max specs. As I will probably be playing the final release on PS3 but I would like to check it out before it comes out.
Well Reibooi the best part is if we don't get in the PC beta we can try again for the PS3 beta ;)
@PS360WII I'm not so sure we can. It says that you cannot apply twice for any reason or it will invalidate your previous application. So I don't know how you would be able to play the PS3 version until it became public which might not be for quite awhile. Maybe the Beta code they send will work on both PC and PS3(once they start allowing PS3 users to beta test). I guess we just have to wait and see.
yeah, there's a ps3 one. it asks if you which platform you want to test. 4 hrs ago, lol, i still got mine in though, guess i deserve that not being here all the time
Yup filled out. Please let me in!
as expected no beta for ps3, fu square
does it really matters doesnt everyone have a PC ??? @below yeah true im sure they will have a PS3 version later down , hopefully this is better than XI
And I'm sure they'll have a PS3 one later down the line
True, but a lot of people don't have time for graphics cards and stuff... they'd rather just download and go. I'm sure they'll do a PS3 beta later on, though...
PS3 Confirmation http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...
I'll get the beta when ps3 beta comes by. I am in no hurry.
Danja not everyone has PC that can run newer games, Hell my laptop can run WoW, but it cant run any of the expansions for it. To the original poster did you really think the PS3 beta would start at the same time?
another ff exclusive you say? thats right bots
pc exclusive beta you say
Hahaha. Telling square FU in one side, trolling Xbox in the other... deary me. Is this what it's come to?
the ps3 may be lacking the beta but the xbox is lacking the game
im pretty sure the ps3 HAS NO GAEMS. kidding, I love my PS3 your trolling skills are bad.
If the game is on PS3 "AND" PC then it's not exclusive.
But if its on the 360 and PC it is deemed "exclusive"
well that's cuz they are both for MS but now we're talk semantics ;) In the end FFXIV will be played by me and hopefully a whole lot of other people!
This is for PC only at the time it does say that the PS3 one will be release later
Who is the d!ck who disagreed to everyone above? I hope it hits PS3 too on Beta! I missed XI, but might give this a try. Maybe the beta will come packaged with 13 when it releases
WTF is up with all the nonsense disagrees with the comments on here? At least reason you jacka^&es. On topic: Damn man Japan is sooo lucky, wanna get in the beta too...
This is a Western beta, man. There's links in the article, an EU and a US sign up page.
come from the fact that this game looks purely like a FFXI rehash, just with better graphics. FFXI IMO was a crap game. The classes are the same, the species are exactly the same just with different names. I mean really? I'll be very surprised if FFXIV brings anything new to the table other than an updated graphics engine.

*The current tester recruitment is for the Windows version of the FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Test only. Details regarding recruitment for the PlayStation 3 version will be released at a later date. 'nuff said. :|
i wish i had a pc that could run games... oh well gotta wait on the PS3 beta
Same here, ill be for the PS3 beta. I really want to try the beta because I'm a bit skeptical about the new class system it seems to easy.
I really hope they'll have some kind of auto-in for the PS3 beta, I really don't want to miss this. And I have a PC, but it's underpowered and might struggle to run FFXIV, and would much rather be in the PS3 beta, so by signing up would I be missing out on the PS3 one?
Just signed up! Woo! FFXIV here I come!
Signed up! ;) Thanks for the notice!
Just signed up. I clicked the wrong link and registered in the US account but I wanted the EU account. I had to get a new email account and I lost my prefered name. >:(
Sign up too. I hope I can enter as a PS3 beta tester :)
