Now Square Enix are throwing us a bone, and the official dates have been announced. Friday, August 25th (9 p.m. Pacific) through Sunday, September 3rd gamers will be able to get their first shot at taking on the world of Dissidia, and they will get to do it with Ject from final fantasy 10! (though he will not be playable in the closed beta so I have included this video for your pleasure).
