    Oh lol…when I read that title and saw the cover image, I seriously thought SE was bringing new playable FFXV content to PAX. Sigh…like that would ever happen…

  • kfart

    Not when TGS is right around the corner, and especially not when they’ve already diverted enough resources in creating Duscae.

  • Randy

    lol… somebody better answer the ffxv no-new-content phone because i fuckin called it.

    The biggest announcement at PAX will be the place where they will reveal the release date .But i do have confidence in something new at PAX too.

  • It’s only been 3 weeks since Gamescom (or it will have been by the time PAX comes around) where they showed off a brand new trailer, so it is reasonable for them to not have time to make another one. However, what they can do is share more info and gameplay about XV, maybe something more tangible about the release date than “…around 2016”. Honestly though, I expect more substantial info and trailers at either Paris Games Week or Jump Festa.

    Their biggest event is always Tokyo Game Show in late September

    I’m just stopping by to say that I managed to fix my old fat PS3’s YLOD to be able to copy old save data from it. I had my FFXIII save there too. Now I’m roaming the Archylte Steppe, and I’m really enjoying it! 🙂 I’m happy beyond belief!

  • Croesys

    I have to agree…at this point, TGS 2015 is the last important venue for new information. If we don’t get anything substantial then, I’ll probably lose whatever hype I have left. Come on TGS!
