Another round of beta keys went out today. If you are a member of IGN Prime, they are giving out codes as well here.

Since I'm back from my vacation, I'll be able to really give the PS3 version a proper test.  Installed a new 750 GB 7200rpm hard drive, both for the sake of improved performance on this game, and for the fact that I'm tired of deleting my PS+ games and other crap on a routine basis.

Cool! I played around with it on my PS3 fat with a 7200 RPM. Didn't have any performance issues other than really bad pop-in and poor overall resolution. The draw distance was good and player animation is solid. Mob animations are pretty sub par. It's FPS locked at 30 FPS too.

Using the stock hdd that came with my good ole 60gb system. Considering I played ffxi on ps2 and then 360 for years, I think I can deal but is the lower end hdd going to make a huge difference?

That's one thing were testing. I have a slim PS3 with the stock HDD too so I'm going to see if there's any noticeable performance gain.

After careful deliberation, I started up on ultros. All my old ffxi buds (who all quit xi WELL before I did) are there, so  I gotta pretend I miss em a little bit. Character name is Agent Dee (yep, I got away with it). I had just enough time this morning to make my character, watch most of the opening cutscenes (had to skip some of the limsa lominsa arrival scenes) and jump twice before I had to exit and head to work.

I haven't been excited to play a game like this since ffvii I think.

I'll be creating my new character on Hyperion at the start of Phase 4 and hoping they don't have to do a reset. (Also moving my main over via WT)

Heading to bed myself. Hopped on, played around a bit with DRG trying to get all the moves on the hotbar. Not going to have much playtime this weekend due to work. Hope you guys/gals who are new enjoy it.

PS3 version runs decently.  It's remarkable that they even have it working considering the RAM limitations.  There is a performance improvement, albeit not significant or anything.  Zoning is certainly faster, though.

Played this until 5am last night. Unlocked armoury and did some multiclass stuff with THA/CONJ. I am buying the crap out of this game.

The level 15 or so story boss fight was great.  Got my ass kicked the first time around, changed tactics, came in with hipotions, and won.  Glad there's content that you can't faceroll.  The story fights are fantastic.

I came here to post something exactly like this. The battle was amazingly well designed; it reminded me of the FFXI CoP fights before they gimped them and, later, removed the level cap. Maybe even the level 70 Maat fights. If they can keep up this quality throughout the main story, I'll be incredibly impressed.  I'm not sure if it's the same fight in every starting area, though.  

On another note, targeting healing spells as a Conjurer during FATEs is impossible.  I'm not sure if it's the targeting system, but I don't think I'm doing anything wrong, because I can target how I like outside of FATEs.

I know right!? There's actually a thread on the beta forums saying the fights are too hard lol. That OP got slammed. It seems everyone is really pleased with the difficulty curve. The game does a great job introducing mechanics and then throws you at content and demands you use it. I think you'll really like the new Ifrit encounter at 22. I'm so pleased that everyone is truly enjoying the game, even though its not doing anything "new", what it does do, it does it extremely well.
