    It's the Beta version, but it's still the game and not just a demo. (The demo disc is also included) The mag has a guide for getting started and says there's over 100 hours of gameplay from the disc.
    Supposedly it's all on there, and free! It even recommends that you buy the keyboard for the game. Beta or final version.
    Keep this in mind if you're an Xboxer and for the next time you hit the stores.

    Or just buy the PC version for $30 US, which includes 2 expansions, and will run on low-end PC's since the game is old ! All the large update are included, and the installation will take 5-10 minutes ! Have the full Xbox360 voice support by downloading Ventrillo or TeamSpeak, since they're exactly like the voice support for the 360 version.

    What's not told in the first post is that you'll have 3 hours of updates to do after setting up the game for the first time.

    Not fair! Nothing can touch WoW!!
    Speaking of WoW, I knew a chick who said she's going to get two "W"s tattooed on each buttcheek.

    Been using a hot chick (named Zeppelyn) for my hero, but dudes keep following me around, so I switched classes.

    You all were right though. The game is pretty boring, and I've always been a big FF fan.
    There's more players on screen than enemies so it's rare to find one to kill and takes forever to level up. Having more fun being one of those little tiny tarutaru's whatever and just running around acting like a tard.

    Running is so slow and the games so damn big. Big is nice when the world has revolutanary graphics. After playing Battlefied2, WoW and some Xbox 360 games, it feels like a downgrade.
    Had more fun playing Phantasy Star Online.

    As soon as I started I went exploring and I ran, I ran so far away.


    Crossblades, the mag is out. You should be able to find it at any store who sells mags.

    Actually looking forward to that one. Also can't wait to play the new Oblivion and Burnout Revenge.

    Wondering if we can transfer our PSO Hunters Liscence to the new one.

    PSO and PSU are differnet games, hence it will not carry over like PSO Ep1/2 and EP3 on GC.

    It will be a new one.

    Final Fantasy XI is great if you don't speak English.
