    I know PSU has been mention here, so I figure I would post this.

    Link

    Also, Monthly Fee will be 10 bucks a month on full version, and the PS2/PC version have a 6 month/50 dollar option.

    Exciting. Ive been wanting this game but I've been hesitent so the beta will be cool to test it out.

    Also I'm sick of this next gen price BS. Its stupid, especially since I can get some games with the exact same content with even higher resolutions on PC for $10-30 cheaper.

    Thats cool and all but its a shame it only runs for a week. They did a much better job with FFXI where it was something like 2 months of beta time before the game was released. I guess they're trying to cash in on the people who will play it for a few hours in that span,love it and then go and buy the game right away.

    I'll give the beta a shot myself but I dont see myself playing once the beta is up. I tried that with FFXI and I just didnt have the time to keep up with it.

    It's neat and all, but the 360 version is pretty much pointless. You can't play with PC or PS2 players.

    I wonder if characters/accounts in beta can be carried over when the full game comes out...Probably not, but would be cool.

    Unlike the nasty FF11, you can play solo and not require 5 other people to level up, and you don't need to wait 2-3 hours if you do want to group with people.

    Why would you even beta FF11 on the 360 anyways ? It was out on the PS2 and PC for 5 years.

    PSU has online story missions that you can only play by youself. You do get npc party members though.

    It was free. That was a good enough reason for me to try it.

    10% I say. Beta has no mention of making a PlaySega account, but I have been told now 360 Version might not be using the Playsega system.

    Whats the point of the other versions? You can't play with 360 players!

    Do I have to pay for a hunter's licence (or whatever it's called) to play the beta?

    Beta is free to 360 users, if they have a Gold Account. Full game will be a 9.99 US Monthly Fee. They also changed it from Hunter to Guardian Lisence.

    So they cut back the start of the beta but it still ends on the same day? That kind of sucks, so I will get a couple of days to play...Oh well, I planned on buying the game anyways.

    As I am at work right now so not at my 360 and cannot verify but Kotaku says that the PSU Beta is up for download now (reference this link) but they say that no one can play currently because the servers aren't up.

    Also to note they say the beta is online only...So there is no offline mode during beta time, and the download clocks in at 980 Meg
