I can tell you one thing, this game is going to have the best cutscenes seen in any MMO.

Another thing you should probably make a post about Eliot is SE's new video on youtube about the improved battle system:

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted here yet.

Thanks for the link. Looks like it's all skills and no AA, like CoX or Champions. However, it still seems a little slow and cumbersome. Hard to tell if whomever's playing it was being slow to demonstrate, was unfamiliar with it, or if it's just the battle system.

Ouch. >_< I'm in one of the lower brackets. The game looks fantastic. Here's hoping the gameplay keeps up.

There's another new trailer (AFAIK) out as well. Looks fantastic.

Win7 64bit, Core i7 920 3.1Ghz, 6GB RAM, 2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285
Hi res: score 2882, load time 10631
Low res: score 4798, load time 10349

The vid cards are probably what's holding it back, but it still looks awesome. Now I wonder if they'll have English voices in the retail release.

If I remember correctly, they ONLY have english voices in the retail release, even in the japanese main cutscenes. At least that's how the alpha is.

Wow i got under 1500, i got exactly 1484...

8800 GT, Quad-Core Q6600 with 4 gigs of RAM. Win 7 64 bit...

I ran it in high rez though..

Are the "score standards on the site for high or low rez??? Cuz According to the test I cant play FF14 yet i know i can run some other pretty intense games fairly easily on my computer.....weird.

The score is for low settings so if you switch to low your score should double

Upgrade that video card, mate. The 9500 won't run much of anything these days - at least get a 9800GT.

Came up with a score of 996 on low resolution.
Still looks amazing, but they say I won't be able to play the game.

I don't know, the benchmark claims I'd be too low to play, yet my system exceeds the system requirements by far...

I am wondering if there is another competent to this.

I think the nice thing is, coming from someone with a 4k PC, is that the PS3 version is available to make it accessible.
