    So I want to play beta phase 4 as early as possible like I'm sure everyone else here, but I was wondering what time it actually starts?

    I wasn't in phase 3 and I don't have a key, so I have to wait for the website to let me sign up and for me it is Saturday 8-17-13. But I was wondering if it is exactly on that day that I can sign up and play. As in 12:00:01 seconds in the A.M. or will it just be a vague time somewhere around the morning. (Maybe depending on the server location?)

    Will it take into account different time zones, or will all servers be opened at 8-17-2013 at 12:01am in Japan (which is 8-16-2013 at 8am in California.)

    Sorry for the confusing writing and thank you in advance for your feedback.

    It usually started at 2:00am PST; which was around 5-6am EST... I was never online as soon as the servers went up; so take that as a rough estimate. But I am pretty sure they opened PST at 2am.

    Yeah I don't think they'll change the start time from previous phases. All I know is for me it's 10am (GMT+1), so a handy enough time. But it all balances out since later in the beta I'll miss out on the last few hours (unless I don't sleep :p).

    5am EST is when they have been starting previously. It's a fairly safe bet.

    One does not sleep whilst BETA is active. :)
    Marathon it, stock up on Caffeine induced products, have an onsuite where the TV is in sight of the toilet seat. All bases covered.

    so..i was in Phase 3,how exactly will Phase 4 happen?

    Do I need to sign up somewhere again? or will it appear on PSN like a normal demo?



    EDIT:
    Oh and is 4 days 16 minutes etc when the beta will be available to download?(because if so,it means i will lose some time downloading it..bah)

    Okay nevermind,seems people are like me and waiting for Square to send them an email

    Applications will be re-opened on the 17th. Rough schedule for phase 4 is (all times are assuming they follow the schedule they had for phase 3)...

    Aug 15 (time???): OBT/Retail client available for download
    Aug 16 (2am PDT/9am GMT): OBT starts for anyone who was in Phase 3
    Aug 17 (2am PDT/9am GMT): OBT starts for everyone else, application site re-opened
    Aug 19 (2am PDT/9am GMT): OBT shut down

    The times are speculation based on what they did in Phase 3. All of their tests started and ended at 2am PDT. Dates are from officially released info.
