I think it’s the hardest version of FF Xi to find. I’ve only seen once in all my intensive research of FF games, and I win the auction ! I never seen it on another collection.
The bêta test was made on 2001 ( august or december, I’m not sure). Then, game release on november 5, 2002, 3 month after PS2 version.
I was really excited to open the box, because I really don’t know what is the content. In fact I expect a simple DVD and that’s all. I was wrong !
The box is taller than regular edition. Here next to « real » FFXI.
Inside, some papers in japenese with online code.
The instruction booklet
Then the Disks, really simple ! An artwork would have been great !
And, the surprise on the box : a Square Enix tag ! I don’t even know if it’s a part of this beta version or an item from a special event !
Bonus : a picture of all FF XI beta version in Japan ! I will present the other later.
