Phase 4 (open beta) emails began circulating today...
Open beta on PS3 will need a new key!!
Check your email accounts and good hunting in the World!
Word is some people have actually gotten their PS3 beta keys today.
So, with Phase 4 starting instead of talking about those people 'leaving' PS Home. . .
Why not ask about those who plan to use PS Home and its club features as a meeting place between gaming??
Alot of people who use Home have already said their thoughts of leaving here but Home was meant as a Social platform and really FFXIV could help shine a postive light on that function of Home to the rest of the gaming community.
Anyways felt some may find this information useful... no code no access phase 4!
I could've swore people were saying the FFXIV phase 4 open Beta was gonna be available in the PSN store, for everyone (or plus members) to download.
So why do we need beta voucher codes again? o_O
Phase 4 is an Open Beta, but not in that sense.
its an Open Beta in the sense that anyone and everyone who applied to the Beta will get in. you will still need to redeem the download code and use the Beta key to get in.
I see it like this; They want to let everyone that showed interest in playing the game in. So all who applied and all who were let into the first 3 phases will be allowed in. So technically it's an open BETA.
Just cause Sony has a contract with SE does not mean they will give Sony the right to put the beta up for download.
1. You will need to create a SE account. So it's not just download and play.
2. They want a rough estimate on how many players they will have at launch. So codes will be needed for them to keep track of that.
Hope you all enjoy Phase 4. I will be on Leviathan (Don't look for me...). And yeah August is nigh Phase 4/Early Release/Launch, i'm so excited lol.
NOTE: Having a PS+ account means nothing to SE since they are the ones distributing the BETA not Sony. So it's just something we will have to deal with. Which really doesn't matter to US at this point since we are automatically in Phase 4 so be happy people.
