Final Fantasy XI Public Beta Test

Square Enix has opened signups for public beta testing of Final Fantasy XI that is supposed to be released at the end of this year. Selected beta testers will get the FINAL game version earlier than everyone else, and will mostly be testing the online play - hence an Internet connection is required. The beta test is for both the PS2 and PC versions of the game (Applying to both versions of the Public Beta may completely disqualify you from participating), and is open only to legal American and Canadian residents, who are over 18 years of age. Follow the link below for the registration page.
