HP Japan Gives Out 1000 FFXIV Beta Passes w/Purchase of New PC

Sales have started in Japan for HP’s newest summer line of desktop PCs.  In particular, today started sales for a special version of the HP Pavilion Desktop PC HPE 290jp/CT.  This bad boy is also being touted as a “Final Fantasy XIV Adventure Ready PC” despite the fact that the game isn’t even out yet.  What makes this PC so ready for FFXIV?  Well, the first 1000 of these special units sold through Japan’s HP Directplus program will also come with passes to the FFXIV beta test.  No word on if a similar promotion will be made available in the future in North America or Europe.
