SE said they wanted to have a longer beta period then ffxi. With the pc version coming out in Sep 22 For CE and the 30 for regular game, this will be a beta that you get to keep your character. Their will be a lot of stuff that will change till the march ps3 version.

OR

They havn't touched the PS3 version yet and the pc version is right on scheduel. SO when is the PS3 beta going to start or will their be one??

I hope they give PS3 players an open beta starting Sept 30th so the PS3 players atleast get to beta test FFXIV during their wait for retail release.

There should be a PS3 beta, since I'm sure they provided codes for such with copies of PS3 FFXIII, did they not?

PS3 beta would be awesome, but very unlikely.

I believe that without the code from FFXIII you couldn't even sign up for the PS3 beta.

Why not? There's plenty of time now. There was a beta for the PS2 version. I participated. It was pretty awesome. All the folks who participated had an HDD shipped to them and got to keep it for free :)

Honestly, I think releasing PS3 Beta on Sept 30th (or 22nd) is the least they could do.

yea I would think that they would hold the ps3 beta for 6 months. Since they said they wanted to test and work on the ps3 version.

This is my last hope before I just accept the fact that I will be shut out of FFXIV until next year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a ps3 beta that starts around September 30th, (maybe a few weeks after to allow SE to deal with the massive problems that comes with the release of an MMO) in which would allow you to keep your character at the end of the beta. This would be the least they could do. Come to think of it one of the biggest reason why I brought FFXIII was because it obtained a beta code (and item) for FFXIV. If there is no ps3 beta then that would be like a double slap in the face for me, but I'm sure I will get over it by the time march rolls around.

PS: I wonder how the Japanese players feel about the news. I would imagine that a huge number of them were planning to play the game on the ps3, since the play-station sells so well in Japan. If they show an outrage like I see on our sites, maybe SE would be sure to allow a ps3 beta

I've always wondered what the JP sites for XIV even were. Anybody fluent enough to poke around and see what our friends across the pond are saying?

A nice 2 month or so long beta starting in September would be a huge boost in morale for us PS3 players. It could give us a great chance to beta test our version of the game and submit reports while dulling the pain of the long wait and atleast dulling it down to about 4 months.

Obviously SE isn't obligated but it's something I'd love to see.

They have officially stated there will be a PS3 beta, yes?

They have also given reasons why an open Beta is not feasible, and carrying over characters is not going to happen.

Sometimes they leave the closed beta server open for good though. But the population decreases over time with no way to replenish. That was that history of FFXI beta, correct?

I think it would make people happy. But even if it's offered I don't think I would play in the beta. I'd hate to play knowing that everything I do is going to be erased while my friends playing on the PC are *really* moving forward
