Zackary, what makes you think they won't be revealing much? I mean, I know SE likes to be mysterious, but this is possibly the only large scale event for them to release information before the release of the game (assuming it will be out in the next year). (Also, you from Chicago? I know that band, `I Fight Dragons` and I've played at Martyr's).
Because they've had other venues to release information at, and they refrained in lieu of releasing it via internet feeds and magazine interviews.
No, I'm not from Chicago.
SE never releases information the way other Studios do. We are talking about a company that invites the press into a huge private mega theater but forbids them to take pictures or film anything, then shows them the premier trailer of a new game, which is viewable to the public months later. Yeah... you journalists, just write very creatively
about the 600 man hours put in to rendering that amazing trailer!
I was honestly shocked
that there was a playable demo of FFXIV at GamesCom. They have also allowed a multitude of pseudo journalists (Blogs and even Community sites) to do Q&A's, which is new. Seems to be a bit more of an accessible if not grassroots way of promoting their game this time around.
As for TGS, I think their will be a lot of focus on the Portables with FFXIII coming in second then lastly some FFXIV stuff refocus the crowd. No word on a if it will be playable.
