    Who's excited? I've been eager to play this since the reveal now many Sony E3 conferences ago.

    1.0 was a fiasco but 2.0 seems to be shaping up rather nicely.

    Myself, this will be the first MMO I give a serious chance. What about you guys? Does anyone else impatiently await their beta invite?

    Somewhere in the back of my head there's a brain-cell expecting FFXII levels of greatness...

    I'm cautiously optimistic for FFXIV i brought the original collectors edition and had fun for a little while but there didn't seem to be enough variety to keep my interest. i will try the beta hopefully that will be convince me to re sub.

    Yup, put me in the excited camp too.

    Im downloading the beat now and am looking forward to getting stuck into this over the weekend. Will your character progression carry across to the retail release does anyone know??

    Anyways, im a huge DC online player and i need a new MMO to play. I have hit max level in that and am pretty bored. This has come at just the right time.

    Got the beta email so will download tonight. Suspect I'll need to clear a load of space for it though.

    I enjoyed v1.0.

    Played the earlier beta phases too, much improved over 1.0.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the others areas as the earlier beta only allowed access to the area around Gridania.

    Bugger, I didn't think about that. I've also got a code, so I had better start clearing some room!

    @f311 I applied on the FFXIV website (iirc) months ago, and then promptly forgot about it until I received the email today.

    Got the beta client downloaded and updated(info shows 5028MB),having trouble connecting though, guess it's overload from everyone trying to get on at once.

    Gonna try again a bit later when it hopefully gets sorted.

    @Folant Cheers for that, looks like I'll only have to clear a little space then.

    Now downloading. The client is telling me it's going to take around 2 hours. I had to clear out a fair bit of room as it wanted 12GB.

    Deleted Gram Turismo 5 and a few other bits and bobs. Now waiting on PSN's usual painfully slow dl speed.

    Mine froze twice while downloading it. All I've managed to do so far is create a character!

    I've downloaded it, but all I'm getting now when I try to launch the game from the XMB is an error :-/

    Not been able to even get that far. Lol (create character)

    The launcher opens just fine, I can log in just fine, the problem arises when I press Play.
    I'm greeted by a black screen. No picture and no sound apart from a solitary PS3 notification bleep thing.
    Anyone have a similar experience and managed to get it solved?

    I know it's a beta, and things are supposed to go wrong, but it is a little disappointing.
    Gonna try again once more at some point and see what happens, would rather not have to delete and start over.

    Hopefully you're all finally in and playing because it's a beauty of a game.

    It's very easy to forget you're playing a beta because it is already so polished. They really istened to our feedback from the first two phases and this is very reassuring.

    So much so that during this phase I'm playing with notebook and pen beside me so I can make a post on the beta forums about any bugs or things I feel they could change. Never felt that much passion toward a game like this.

    @wogsy81
    yes it is. my hope in final fantasy is restored. they got pretty much everything right. especially marveled by the controls! my only gripe is I don't know if I should play PS3 (and get one of those keypad thingies) or PC (iMac) with PS3 pad...

    anyway add me to your friends lists! i'm on Cereberus, my character is Oswald Miranda! only played solo so far (LVL11).

    Are the PS3 and PC versions cross compatible (if that makes sense)? As in, same world?

    @Humperfunk yes. you can even log out on one platform and then log in on the other and continue exactly where you left off. seems the hot cross bar and other options are saved locally though.

    How do you add a friend? For some reason it only seems to let you search by first name or second name. Confused :confused:

    Pad controls for the hot bar take a little bit of getting used to. Keep pressing R1 and changing the book. Lol

    Fun to see some returners keeping their looks from XI.
    Goblins, Pugil, Gobbue, Qiqirn, Mandragora. :-D
    Can't wait to see if there's any Yagudo or Mamool Ja.

    Was gonna use this to test the water whether or not to keep my pre order open. Roll on August, who needs a social life anyway. :-P
