If you are going to say something related to FFXV reliance on feedback, post those thoughts in this other thread, please.

As we know, the game's full promotion is starting on August at Gamescom and with that said i'll ask you all, how do you want SE to handle FFXV marketing ?
For example, how many trailers are released in 'X' time, how much info of plot is reveal, how much "secrets" and "surprises" about gameplay do you want them to show up?. My personally:
  1. I'd like 1 trailer every 2-3 months, or 1 trailer per gaming event.
  2. ATR should be done once every(approx) 4 months, starting in Gamescom.
  3. Regarding point 1 and 2, we need more info about other characters (not tons of details, just something sustancial)
  4. Show us only a bit of gameplay with magic and gameplay outside of combat, such as chocobo riding(?).
  5. DON'T SPOIL, not only plot things but also gameplay, like i dont want them to show me everything how the game plays to later find that i've already seen everything, Episode Duscae or Ubisoft (with some of their games) in general comes to my mind.
Thats more or less how i want them to handle it, i wish SE could pull the same that ATLUS does with PERSONA 5.

Don't ever talk about Duscae again. Don't spoil half of the plot and the ending again. Don't talk over and over again about the same thing.

Do release great trailers, in the vein of Versus XIII. Do release high quality artworks, renders, screenshots. Do show the final version of the game.

There. That's how you don't ruin the marketing.

Since Gamescom 2015 marks the start of the promotional campaign for the real FFXV, the number of ATRs should drastically minimize or just have no ATRs at all. I say this because it's time for trailers, previews, demos and stage demos to do all the weight lifting because:
  1. The reception of viewers for the following above will be much greater compared to the reception of ATRs since the viewers consists of hardcore fans, determined fans, curious fans and "on the edge" fans.
Not really a criticism, but this confuses me. Hardcore and determined would be the ones watching ATRs. Trailers, stage demos and whatnot reach out to a broader audience.

Also, no opinion on marketing. I already know what I want with this game. The demo was adequate enough for me.

Just throwing in again that games typically release within six months of full promo, so after August's ATR, I'd like to see one in December, just to show progress of the final game (because by then it should pretty much be at the last stages of debugging) and the inevitable collector's edition, and one in March before the release, where they could discuss what they couldn't put in, potential DLC, etc.

Oh god please no, that's absolutely destructive marketing. Hiding new trailers behind paywalls and not even uploading them to the official chanels is just awful. Square did this for a long time and I'm glad that they finally know better.

@topic
I don't have particular wishes except for way less spoilery trailers and that I want to learn more about the characters and see "some" new locations/set pieces.

Whatever they show in the new trailer at gamescom, at the very least i want to know the names of all the unnamed characters from the E32013 trailer.

they have many Q&As that week, so theyll pry name and describe everyone. they hinted at a website re-work for gamescon too so they might put all the bios on that. im expecting new regions for gameplay, with new gameplay features no one thought about
