"Beta" is a term that's used a lot nowadays. In the past, getting into a beta was something special. You filled out a questionnaire and prayed that you would be selected to participate. That seems to be a thing of the past and multiplayer betas look nearly identical to the finished product. It may also leave some gamers unaware of how much work goes into a game (or should go into a game) between the various development phases.
After I get off of the soapbox, I'll get to introducing this video. It's for Final Fantasy XIV
and gives us a comparison of the changes made between the alpha and beta versions. It's quite interesting and only a few minutes. Take a gander!
