Square Enix is nearing the re-release of Final Fantasy XIV and have opened up beta applications in preparations for the launch. Users can sign up for US or European accounts, and for either the PlayStation 3 or PC versions. Or both version if you're that addicted!
Additionally, the prologue for A Realm Reborn has been released for your viewing pleasure. You've probably already seen part of this video, but the three or so minutes toward the end is brand new.
