Let us answer YOUR questions at TGS

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

Later today, in a coordinated intercontinental maneuver worthy of NATO, both SCEE Blog’s Jem Alexander and myself will swoop into Japan for this week’s Tokyo Game Show.


While we’d love to take you all with us to TGS, we can only do so in spirit. So please, send us packing with some great questions to ask the developers we’ll be meeting in Japan.

Developers of which games? Ah, I’m glad you asked. Here’s a (somewhat complete) list of games whose developers we’ll be meeting with:

  • PixelJunk Shooter
  • PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe
  • White Knight Chronicles
  • Gran Turismo 5/ GT PSP
  • Heavy Rain
  • Valkyria Chronicles II
  • Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker
  • Quantum
  • Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll

There’ll probably be more (fingers crossed for 3D Dot Game Heroes), but this is a good start.
Ah, and some clarification of what we mean by “great questions”; the ones we’ll pick are the ones that everyone else *won’t* be asking (you know, dates, inclusion of trophies… the easy stuff that will get announced anyway). Make us look intelligent! Or at least reasonably so.

OK, fire away in the comments!

See you (virtually) from the show floor,
Jeff & Jem

Wow. @ 301. It’s funny that your tally of Square games on the American psn store is 0. I guess Final Fantasy 7 and Final Fantasy Tatics were made by other companies huh?

Regardless, rumor has it that you plan to implement ps2 games as downloadable. Don’t get me wrong, if that’s true, I may pick some up if you actually put rare games up for a reasonable price. However, I think the majority of the community, who don’t own a BC playstation will be demanding an explanation as to why you’ll able to emulate the games and charge and arm and a leg for them, but not able to have actual BC in the ps3.

I’m sure with it being a rumor you can’t comment on it here, until it’s official news but, just hope the guys at Sony in general, have really thought this one over.

What are the upcoming Dreamcast PSN exclusive games? (Jet Grind Radio, Skies of Arcadia, Crazy Taxi, Rival Schools…)

General question: When will we see more JRPGs on the PS3? With Agarest War being relegated to PSN store only (I’ll be importing the disc, thanks), it seems like my favorite genre of games is getting the short end of the stick. I’m desperately hoping for a dual-language release of Tales of Vesperia for the PS3. Is it coming?

More to the point: Is the upcoming Metal Gear multiplatform game being developed on the 360, or on the PS3? I’m very anxious because games developed on the ‘other’ platform never seem to make the translation to the ‘more powerful’ system without huge quality issues.

More of a request than a question. Please have someone improve relations with Hironobu Sakaguchi. US PS3 (J)RPG fans would not like to miss out on any more of their games like we did with Lost Oddysey and Blue Dragon. If anything, see if he’ll stop having MS publish their games so we can get a release on PS3. Sakaguchi is a god among RPG designers, and it would be an awesome thing to have him developing on the PS3.

Gran Turismo 5:

Will we see continued support after GT5’s release in the form of car/track DLC?

A GT Home space?

After GT ships, thoughts on making a sequel to Touist Trophy?

Kurokai123 said:

This is unlikely to be answered, but I want you guys to ask them if Final Fantasy Versus 13 will make any kind of showing, video, or non-video wise. Any kind of information, like how development is going, will gladly help me , as I deisre that game a lot :)

Polyphony Digital-What new improvements and features can we expect offline and online?

Cross313 said:

September 22nd, 1:48 pm

I’d like a straight answer on Final Fantasy 13, is the 360 going to cause limitations to the PS3 version? I’ve heard rumours that we wont be able to back track to old lands on a previous dvd (360 version) and due to that the same code is being implemented into the PS3 version. Which is true, is shat.

NeoGuardian86 said:

September 22nd, 5:48 pm

I got some questions. hopefully someone will think they’re important enough to ask.

1. Will PixelJunk Shooter have a level creator?

2. How much new content has been added to PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe?

3. Will Gran Turismo 5 feature damage on ALL their cars?

4. What different online modes are available for Gran Turismo 5?

5. Will Gran Turismo 5 force car collector’s to only be able to buy cars on certain in-game days (i personally think this is really lame, but i wanna know if it’s in GT5).

6. What Pre-Order Bonus’s will be offered for Gran Turismo 5
(same questions applies to Heavy Rain, and White Knight Chronicles).

7. What new features have we not heard about already will be featured in Valkyria Chronicles II.

Thanks. and peace out.

Ask them about 2010 camaro in Gran Turismo 5 and ask Sega not to edit anything from Yakuza 3 and just put it in english.

Whoa, too many comments to read them all.

GT5 – Is 4 years between games damaging to your brand identity? There are a lot of people in the gaming space who may not have played a GT game and many that now identify racing games as NFS, PGR, Forza, DIRT/GRID. Are there plans to make releases of GT more frequent/regular thereby keeping brand identity higher?

PJ Shooter – How do you feel about such a stupid name for a game that’s not in the shooter genre? Also – would you do it again (let forum goers choose) if you could go back? What would you have liked to call it? I like “PJ Thermals” or “PJ Magma”.

PJ Monsters – Tell me the Deluxe levels are gonna be on PSN or I will cry. Well?

VC 2 – Regarding the original, is it frustrating to release a game that is so well received critically yet sees such low sales? Did setting the game in a fictional Europe hurt US sales/aid EU sales? Do you expect sales of VC2 to be much higher or are expectations roughly the same?

Hi, Jeff:

If it isn’t already too late, please ask how many SPUs GT5 will use.



ForgetfuI said:

September 23rd, 2:43 am

Hope it’s not too late…

GT5: Will there be any online, endurance racing features? Most importantly driver swaps?

What kind of championship and league functions will there be? What kinds of rules and regulations will be able to be enforced by the host/organizer? Will there be any web-based support for this?

Will there be working headlights, that the user can operate while driving? What about other features that could be operated from a ‘RA menu’ type pop-up, such as radio and music controls, automatic convertible tops, hazard lamps and toggling of retractable wings (some can be set to stay up, or down, instead of responding to speed)? Also look left and look right should be the turn signals as well. :D

Will we see a more in depth ‘Diary’, preferably one for the driver’s profile, and also one for each car?


September 23rd, 3:10 am

1. If I get a GO, is there a way for me to transfer my UMD’s to Digital?
2. When will KH BBS come to America?
3. Will the PSP ever have a Friends list of some sort?
4. When can the PS3 get a Private Chat Feature?

Its been said before, but it needs to be said again.

If they don’t announce it themselves, please ask Namco about Tales of Vesperia’s NA release date.

DLM16A2 said:

More info on Eye of Judgment for PSP, and if there will be any continued support for Eye of Judgment PS3

Nirotu said:

September 23rd, 3:22 pm

Hey guys I’m pretty sure I heard Square Enix was going to be at TGS to promote Final Fantasy XIII and XIV. How bout getting some more info on these games? I do have some questions about XIV such as the disciplines and how and what they will arch out to be. For instance what classes will eventually be available at the higher “levels” and such. Anyway thanks for all your hard work so far and have fun.

Here’s my question:

When you you fix the issue with firmware 3.01 disabling bluRay functionality on the PS3?

I’v heard so much hype on it and nothing.
the easter eggs said the 24th of September.
and we know now thats not true. so when is it going to be out i would like to know. If any one knows tell me.

wallypinkerton said:

I know that 250GB bundles have been announced for Japan and the UK. But, I cannot find any conformation on 250GB bundles coming to the states.
Can you confirm what, if any, 250GB bundles will be making their way state-side? (I have a good friend that’s waiting on this news before buying a slim)

Qmoney88 said:

September 26th, 5:43 pm

i just want to know, like many others, if there is absolutely any new info on final fantasy versus 13, this is one of the most mysterious square enix projects ever announced, and its a little more than annoying that virtually nothing has been released about the stories, characters or battle system what have you. is there anything you guys know or can find out?

Qmoney88 said:

September 26th, 5:51 pm

okay ill make myself more clear, i just want to know if the game is still in development, like if it actually exists. I dont know why the nobody from square enix has yet to show any substantial amount of info, or why sony hasnt pushed them to do so. This is, imo, a huge exclusive that sony would be foolish not to advertise and/or show some kind of direction the development team is taking. Im sorry for the dual posts but i NEED some info, try your best to get some.

FROZENFIRE0808 said:

September 27th, 1:36 am

Lately I’ve been receiving messages from some of my friends that say that Sony will be charging people to use the Play Station Network because Sony is down in sales and to put in my comment PSN WILL BE FREE in order to stop that. Is that true or is it just a rumor?
