    Is that the official name?
    It's called Mirage Prism in JP. I thought this would be something they'd keep consistent, having gone through all the trouble of giving it an english name.

    Then again there's the content finder -> duty finder....

    Orally, they called the system Mirage Prism. On the PPT, it read: "Glamours (formerly vanity system)

    Personally, I think they had it right with Vanity System. All this fancy nomenclature BS just makes the whole thing convoluted.

    I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for PS4s FFXIV. :wideyed: Anyone have more information on how the beta process works? I've always read that anyone playing on the PS3 gets the beta, but above it says as long as you've got the PS4 system you can play beta. Would this just be available for download like any other game, or does beta require some application-type process??

    No application required. Anyone with a PS4 and active PS3 account will be able to register for the beta.

    The initial beta will be a closed beta held on a test server mainly as a hardware test. The next one is where you'll be able to play with your own characters on any server. I'm not even sure why they need to perform a hardware test at all considering they've already had it running. But I guess they just want to play it safe incase the consumer version differs from the developer versions.
