That's awesome, I'm sure most places here in the US don't have a clue as to what FFXIV is, let alone a system benchmark.
To be honest, most places here don't even know what XI is. I went to a Gamestop once (back then it was EB Games) to get a copy of XI for Ps2, and they had no idea what I was talking about and obviously they didn't have it in stock. They didn't even have the PC version. Had to order it off ebay and have it shipped from who knows where.
But then again, it's not like we Westerners are really SE's target market anyway. Just about everything we've gotten from them was well after Japan release (if at all) and a lot of it was dumbed down. So, meh.
I hope they do at least a LITTLE advertising here though. They can't just build it and expect that people will come.
