Yep, Wint, you are correct.
Mezolitik, you just need a second PSN account for your wife's PS3 user profile. Each PSN account needs to be linked to a separate User Profile and email address, but you can have multiple PSN accounts on one PS3.

And I confirmed, no need for my fiancée to even have a PS3 beta key, just need the one key for the PS3, all accounts on the same box get in. To summarize:
> Each PC needs a S/W copy.
> PS3 needs one disk/download to cover all accounts on the system.
In my case my fiancée and I each have our own SE accounts and our own PSN online user ID's.
> PC is pretty much open, once the software is installed anyone can log in on each of our machines.
> PS3 links your online PSN account to your SE user account first time the game starts on each account.
| >> I can't log into my SE account from my fiancée's PSN ID, she can't log in on mine. We have to log into our own PSN ID, then start the game, after the first time our SE ID is grayed out, no option to log in a different user.

This weekend we had some friends over, one brought his PS3 so he could play with us while visiting. Another friend that was over saw the game for the first time and is considering putting in a pre-order. The game really has improved over 1.0 CE. The viewer DRM requirements are a bit odd, but have always been so since FFXI.
Honestly, my opinion is SE should make the viewer free to download and allow any valid account to log in on any viewer. The DRM for an MMO really is covered on the SE account end. Why they make it so hard for users to get software installed and validated makes little sense to me, but it is what it is. Edited, Jul 6th 2013 9:54pm by SkyRaymaker
