Final Fantasy XI beta to be available with UK magazine



Good news for people from Her Majesty's blessed shores. The popular massively multiplayer online game Final Fantasy XI is due for release on the Xbox 360 next year, and readers of the UK's Xbox 360: The Official Xbox Magazine (or OXM 360 for short) will be able to take part in the beta test in January. A disc is included free with the magazine, which goes on sale on January 5th.

This is a great opportunity to preview what the next generation of gaming will be capable of; however, with the Xbox Live marketplace shaping up to be a solid content-delivery system, it's a shame the beta will not be downloadable. Beta discs are also being distributed with special Japanese 360 launch packages, but we've no word on when it will be available to our American cousins, so this may give them one reason to hate us back.

Does anyone know if we will be able to transfer over our PC characters to the XBOX 360 version? Or would we have to start new characters if I wanted to play on 360?

your character is stored at square enix server, no need to do any character transfer. the only think u would like to transfer are your macros which i guess u:ll need to type them in again from scratch on 360.
