FFXIII & Beta questionFollow

Alright.. this is a terribly bad newbie question here but I'm stumped. I have some upcoming free time and was thinking about trying out the FF XIV beta. I purchased FFXIII and have registered my code on Square-enix's website. However I have no idea where to go from here. Did I miss my chance to utilize this code for beta? Can anyone possibly direct me where to go exactly?

Thanks and sorry because I'm sure the answer is going to wind up being obvious.

EDIT: Well after digging around some more it seems I may have misunderstood. Buying FFXIII only gives you a better chance at getting into the Beta?

IIRC, FFXIII's code allows you the chance to get into the PS3 beta, which won't even start for a little while yet.

If you bought FFXIII and you got a registration code on a paper inside the box and its been registered to a square enix account, you'll be given another code that you'll need to type in when FFXIV is released to get an exclusive in game item. You'll receive the Asuran Armguards. I'm surprised you found a copy of 13 with the registration code still inside. Many people have looked and never found one. If you'd like to know how to find the code you need to enter to get your armguards, just post here and I'll give you step by step instrucions.

Well I preordered and purchased FF XIII at its midnight launch at a gamestop the night before it came out. I've had the code registered for awhile. Summer school started up and I lost track of FF XIV for awhile and now have a little freetime to get back into some gaming.

But I don't remember seeing the second code you mentioned in order to get the armguards. Those step by step instructions would actually help out immensely.

It isn't two codes, both things are based off the single code.

It still sounds like you haven't registered for the beta yet. You have to actually go to finalfantasyxiv.com and fill out the beta form. Then, enter in the code they gave you. Beta entry is apparently closed though. Looks like you will have to wait for it to open again. Not sure what WindowsR is.

What swisa said is: "If you bought FFXIII and you got a registration code on a paper inside the box and its been registered to a square enix account, you'll be given another code that you'll need to type in when FFXIV is released to get an exclusive in game item"

Then he said: "If you'd like to know how to find the code you need to enter to get your armguards, just post here and I'll give you step by step instrucions."

So my query at this point is.. I would indeed like to know how to find that code that I will need to enter.

Marsupialboy beat me to it. I took a nap. I appologize. Just to clarify though, you'll want to log in. Choose features. Then choose FFXIII. Click bonus codes and choose review your Playstation 3 bonus codes and bonus details. Scroll down the screen and you should see a picture of your armguards.
