It most likely won't start until Sony pulls their head out of their ***. There's some sort of trouble with the Ps3 version on Sony's end that just couldn't be solved before phase 3 was set to start. they were mentioning a month delay for phase 3 about two weeks ago.. so it'll probably be another month before the possibility of any chance to get into the phase will be plausible. With all their NDA garbage it is really difficult and annoying to attempt to track the progress of the game in any meaningful way. I recommend forgetting about the whole thing for a month or two.

Being we don't even have a date in June when phase 3 will even start, I wouldn't worry about checking your email until the beginning of June. I'm sure there will be plenty of time after they send the emails to get it all setup and the client downloaded. I'm trying as well but won't even bother looking at emails until next month. The more you keeping looking the slower time goes (from my POV) at least.

I don't think it's "trouble" so much as Sony being slow. They can't release PS3 clients until Sony gives the green light, and Sony hasn't gotten around to certifying it yet.

Well then shouldnt we all start email SONY by the masses saying this is an issue that has put us all in a depression state and many of us may commit suicide if this isnt released on time ;P (sarcasm at its finest)... if they know thousands are at risk of dying by there doings maybe just maybe we could see this move along faster haha...

PS. i know there isnt an ON TIME point right now just fyi...

Phase 3 will get here when it does. I don't want them rushing to push the product out like they did v1 (if there are problems). By doing so ARR will be destined to fail like v1 did. In the mean time relax find a game or something else to do to tide your time. I'm waiting on Metro: Last Light to come out on the 15th to tide me over until then.

I'll be really honest ever since i play FFXI for those 7 years of my life... Then moved to WoW which was a mistake!!!! i have never been able to find a game that holds my interest like XI did... it was challenging and rewarding to me with even the smallest of things... ive played many of games and i just cant get into any of them so i end up putting them down about half way through every time... i dont want them to rush it either but delays due to another party are redonkulous!!!! they knew this was coming for how long now? either way meh ill keep my fingers awaiting the greatest creators game ever! SE keep up the good work looking forward to playing your amazing game...

They haven't ever "officially" given dates as to when each phase starts. Surprisingly, the last two phases were quite timely, even to the point of being complete a bit ahead of schedule (at least my schedule lol). It could be around by the beginning of next month but I wouldn't bank on an exact date.

I just hope that they are using this extra time to test and make improvements and tweaks to the game instead of twiddling their thumbs. I have been kind of wary as to their Beta practices, giving the most amount of content the least amount of player testing. Hopefully they know what their doing and will give the rest of the game proper testing before commercial release.

Maybe I'm just bitter after salivating over this game for three years and being unable to play 1.0. I suppose I'm looking for a cure for the itch that FFXI just can't scratch anymore. I'm in the same boat as you with changing over to WoW. Being so far behind with no connections really sucks XD.

WoW to me was a straight trash game!!! blizzard could have done leaps and bounds better than what they did...i lvled a rouge and a warrior to 70 in about a a months time just to do dailies and run the same freaking raids over and over for gear that i already had... so i joined in on PvP with my college mates and we wrecked that to... in the end it wasnt difficult to do anything at all in WoW which really ****** me off... i like difficulty in a game... if a lil 5-10 year old is complaining about how hard content is i laugh in there face cause they shouldnt be playing it in the first place... and gladly go behind them and show them the correct way of there mistakes... i dont know now im just on a rant but i have nothing at all to say about WoW that is good... (do keep in mind tho ive been tatted many times with things off of SE's games and also a close follower of most there games) ***** BLIZZARD!!!

I know it's cool to bash WoW in forums not devoted to WoW (and in some that are), but you have to know you're talking straight out of your ***, right?

WoW certainly isn't the best game ever made. That game is going to be different from person to person.

But as far as MMOs go, do you honestly believe that its staggering success isn't for a reason? WoW has the best raiding, some halfway decent pvp, and plenty of things for people not interested in either of those two things to do.

its success is because its so easy to play... tell me if im wrong but ill say about 4/10 peeps you talk to are probably around the ages of 10-16 which is not the correct fan base that i or any other adult should be playing a fantasy game with in my eyes... there is to much that could go wrong there but hey its whatever right? and if you say im talking out of my *** i guess i am but my opinion holds to WoW being probably one of the worst MMO's ive ever laid my hands on... id rather go back to playing The Realm over that dumb ****... or even a almost empty server on DAoC...

Your opinion is your opinion i wont fight you on that but dont try to sway mine either...

Here's to hoping some unforeseen event doesn't occur causing Sony to squash the Ps3 version altogether.

Oh! Also have toa account for E3.. Its June 11th - 13 I believe.. So marketing may want to do something special and wait till then to announce Phase 3 starting so when you leave here go apply online or soething.. lol.. Or maybe already have hase 3 up and running for all of us and during E3 run around beta for people.. After all, it IS when the NDA is lifted supposedly.

Good point about E3 Saito. I usually forget about that event until my brother sends me a pic message with his ticket confirmation. Adding insult to injury, he also sends me the distance I now live away from CA. Family, /sigh.

On topic, Im wondering where you read that Phase 3 is being delayed due to Sony's abysmal certification process. Over the years I've had plenty of reasons to do my "old-man fist shake" at Sony for the exact same thing. Essentially I'm looking for clarification about this so that I can raise my withered fist once again!

I'm hopeful that the delay is simply SE doing some last minute adjustments on the game for Phase 3. From all of the announced changes, (new classes, areas, UI tweaks) it would seem that the delay is warranted. C'mon Sony, dont let me down. I've been not-so-patiently waiting for a ps3 version of FFXIV for a long time. Getting a bit antsy in my pantsy.

Wasn't there a news story a couple days back about the PS3 version being on hold indefinitely and them holding the beta until the PS4 comes out instead?

It might have been in one ask the producer sections, I think the question of when the PS3 beta will hit was posed and the answer was uncertain due to certification issues. I think. I hope I'm not making that up.

PS3 beta is coming in June. 5/20/13 was thrown out at some point as a pre-order date.

I wish I could find the **** articles.

I pretty much need this game now. I put in for the beta testing pretty much out the gate, sadly had drifted off when subscription came back to 1.0; no fancy title or extra access for me. I am really not excited about any game right now other than this, for good or bad. So, please SE, let me in. I'll be good. I swear!

26\26 peeps I talk with on WoW are all adults and a part of the LGBT community. If you sit in trade chat, sure you will meet the dregs of society. If you join a guild and *gasp* be social with people your own age and that have similar goals and interests, you'll have a much better experience.

Leveling is relatively easy. I'll give you that. Even to some extent minor grouping is easy. But heroic raiding? Bro, I bet you never even did it. It's success is because it blends a lot of different things together and there is something for everyone. Like questing? There's a **** of a lot of that. Enjoy just learning the story? Got that too. Want large scale group events that require skill and coordination? We've got ur raiding right here! Like to bash other players' face in? There's random PvP groups as well as rated BG's for those who want to organize. Wish you could play Pokemon instead? Well now we have that too. Want dungeons? Go for it! Don't like dungeons? Go go scenarios with no spec requirements! Like farming? I mean, like really growing things? Have at it! Play the AH, defend your city, hunt for that perfect outfit. It's all there.

Seriously, WoW has its flaws but the things you mentioned are definitely not some of them.

That's fine. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, of course. Posting misleading and antagonistic information isn't the best way to communicate with other adults, however, especially given your comments about the seemingly immature atmosphere in said other game....
