Am I the only one excited and amped to see what happens at TGS this year!? I'd hope to see some more information released on FFXIV, at least another teaser video.

Predictions/speculation for what SE has in store for TSG09, anyone?

My guess will be another teaser video, and/or more information on Beta, and maybe the "leveling" system.

Go!

Here's the site:

I would be content just with some concrete information on game mechanics and pretty screens to look at.

Seeing that PS3 and Final fantasy are king in Japan, this seems like the perfect forum for SE to drop a few details about FFXIV. Somethin...anything..sheesh SE throw us a bone for god's sake.

They're hyping us up ahead of time due to the amount of energy we'll be putting into this game, haha.

I'm going to be the optimist and say they release everything about the game...from the auction house and combat system to the job system and crafting. The only thing they'll hold back is the date of the beta.

...wouldn't it be great...

So you think they'll spill all the beans but the Beta ones, huh?

How could they be so heartless!? lol..

Most developers hold their beta information close to heart until the invites actually go out.

Well, like I said, I'll be perfectly ok with just another video, or any information for that matter.

More predictions/hopes?

The new GDC in europe (cologne) is a month before TGS (being the replacement for the popular Leipzig conference) and I believe SE has already signed up to be there, so that might be the next place we hear anything.

Thanks for the site, I'll be sure to keep checking on it once it gets closer to the actual date.

Who knows, we may/may not hear something about FFXIV here, but I expect and am pretty sure we'll hear more at TGS.

I wouldn't expect more than another teaser video at GDC, though.

Click the "gamescom" link on that site that was provided above; You'll see SE listed as a partner, along with just about everyone else. I'm not sure what the difference between GDC and Gamescom is as they seem to run consecutively and in the same place.

I predict that before the beta starts, SE will release all the details about FFXIV. There is no way they can contain the thousands of beta testers from all over the world that are needed to test the different servers and game play interactions. There fore they will probably release everything so no one else will steal their thunder.

Just got done searching GDCs partners/sponsors myself for information, then you dropped this mini-bomb, lol. Awesome info, appreciate it.

So can we say that SE will be at GDC, as well?

Oh, Gamescom seems to be the successor of Leipzig Games Convention- I remember that a year or 2 ago there was an interview with SE devs about FFXI!

Now I'm getting all hyped up about this, dang.

Now you're playing catch up, lol. I've been hyped up all week, well, since E3. We have GDC first up with possibilities of hitting us with more hardcore information, then TGS, which we all know we'll hear something Epic there, period.

And since TGS is in September, could that mean that all the September Beta speculations are shot down for now? Or better yet, maybe Beta will be announced @ TGS?


The suspense is killing me.

My German friend was at Leipzig GC last year and SE had a strong presence there. The show was quickly becoming a highlight on the game-lovers calendar before the former director jumped ship to start his own Gamescom convention and all of Leipzig's attendees seem to have gone with him. I'm expecting big things from Cologne this year.

We don't have to wait 'till TGS, w00t! Just what 1½ months, dayum.

They'll obviously save all the big things for the home expo, but at least few ingame screenshots would be nice!

I now predict:

A teaser video/screenshots @ GDC.
Everything else but Beta discussed @ TGS.

The Month TGS is in is kind of giving the Beta in September speculation a hard time, don't ya think?

I'll be happy with...20-25 screenshots @ GDC.

Kind of started this Thread more towards seeing what type of information people predicted would be released at TSG, and now, GDC! That and what people expect to hear at both events.

You can expect FFXIV to have some great Music, though.

I think it'll be another trailer, one in which we can see more if not all of the jobs. In the trailer I hope to see more glimpses of the Story and hopefully a little look at on how the Equipment will work.

Don't get too ahead of yourselves here, the GDC is strictly business in most cases.
I'd be doubtful of SE even going unless its to push their Crystal Tools engine some more and maybe to get 3rd party devs to buy it up.

Oh and in case you don't know, GDC stands for Game Develepors Conference, nothing consumer about it.

I'd love more info! My hopes are to see a video of in-game stuff, or at least screenshots. I'd love to see ingame graphics that arn't part of a trailer. Seeing what the character creation will be like would be nice. Confirmation of races...gawd ya know what, anything!! EVERYTHING!! x3

Went through these myself earlier yesterday, interesting read indeed.

Doesn't hurt to have some hopes for GDC. If that doesn't pull through for us we all know TGS will, so regardless, the excitement remains! From what I've read, SE was at GDC last year, so why not this year too? Especially with two new games being released the following year.
