So you can only start the download if you're in the closed beta?
When I tried to start mine, I got the error: "There are no valid service accounts."
"[NA PS3 Version] Version Update Issue (Aug. 15)
Right now we are experiencing technical difficulties on North American PlayStation®3 version where an error message saying "No valid service account is available to play FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn." when players press the login button on the launcher and they are unable to complete the version update.
We are currently addressing this issue with a cooperation of Sony Computer Entertainment and new updates will follow as additional information becomes available.
Please note that this issue is only occuring on the North American PlayStation®3 version. The Windows version, and Japanese/European PlayStation®3 version, are unaffected.
We deeply apologise for any inconvenience." http://forum.square-enix.com/ARR-Test/threads/99516-NA-PS3-Version-Version-Update-Issue-%28Aug.-15%29
