I keep reading that the teaser trailer is something for " Man at Arms-type episode"?

Smells like Dragon Age: Origins styled marketing.

I'm hoping to get access to this beta.  It would also give me a reason to take a break from XIV.

"The beta test will be conducted in both North and South America. Strangely, no registration will be required, but "select players" will receive download codes for the beta via PSN. The first round of testing will commence on October 12th and access into the beta will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis. The first round of testing will only accommodate 5000 players, but the second round of testing – which will commence two weeks later on October 26th – will seat more players." -- DualShockers

Yeah, I read that the other day.  Knowing my luck, I won't get access. I think they should be able to see who all got Platinum in both games and then do a random selection.  Would make the best sense.

EpicNameBro was lucky enough to actually try the beta in Japan (since he lives there and Namco Bandai UK are awesome), here are his thoughts:

I'm probably the only one disappointed that it might be a lot harder than the previous game. :P I think the first Dark Souls was about as much as I could take. I played it before I played Demon's Souls, and I think Demon's Souls broke me and killed my interest in hard games...again...(I though Demon's Souls was harder than Dark Souls). Sad to say, I'll probably be skipping this one, though I do hope it's successful regardless.

I'll definitely still be getting it, but I don't like the sound of invasions happening even while you're hollow. I died so many times to O&S, and it became infuriating trying to get help there when the same couple of people would kill me repeatedly before I could even reach the summon signs.
