All individuals are invited to apply, regardless of their past MMORPG experience.
The official Final Fantasy XIV Beta Web site indicates that the recruitment is currently for the Windows version of FF14 only, however, a PS3 version will follow on a later date according to PS3Attitude.com, to quote:

238w ago - Per Major Nelson today: I know that many of you are excited to get your hands on the New Xbox Experience, which will go live all Xbox LIVE regions wide on November 19th.
Well, we're just as excited to as you are so I am happy to announce that I've been working on a little project that I think may interested you.
Working with various teams across Xbox, we've developed a program to allow a select few of you early access to NXE. How do you get chosen? The first step is to head on over to Microsoft Connect, sign in with your Windows LIVE ID and join the "Xbox 360 Fall 2008 Preview Program" by clicking on this link.
Once you do that, you need to fill out the "Xbox 360 Fall Flash Preview Sign Up" survey in order to be considered for receiving the Preview System Update.
We're asking a few questions about where you live, your home network, ISP connection and a few other pieces of information. We are looking for a good cross-section of our members in order to get the best feedback we can.
