FFXI 360 beta set for December

So still time to move to Japan.

Microsoft Japan has confirmed that beta testing of the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XI will commence on December 10 - the same day the shiny new console launches over there.

All those who purchase the limited edition launch package, which costs the same as the regular bundle but comes with a free Xbox Live headset, will receive a free FFXI beta test disc too. Until stocks run out, of course.

Anyone who wants to take part in the beta will need to sign up for Square-Enix's PlayOnline service and make use of the Xbox Live Silver package, which are both free.

Final Fantasy XI first appeared on PC and PS2 last year. It'll be the first Square-Enix game to appear on a Microsoft console, and we're promised lovely high definition graphics and a tip top online mode. There's no word on a release date as yet.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
