Great Question
With the Kingdom Hearts franchise coming to an Xbox platform for the first time with Kingdom Hearts 3, is there any chance Xbox owners can play the previous games some time down the line?

ANSWER
if fans ask for it, it has a better chance. right now, TBD. they probably haven't thought about going down that road yet.

Good Question
Lighting Returns: You have 13 days to complete the game (or till the world ends). How many real time minutes = one in-game hour? Will there a collector’s edition for the game? What does it include?

ANSWER
no answer on collectors edition but the last game I played on the floor was this. time passed one minute every three seconds of real time while not in a battle or cutscene.

Good Question
For Lightning returns FFXIII: The main core gameplay mechanics of the two previous titles revolved around paradigm shifts and gaining stats thru Crystarium. Will this persist into this game? And are there plans on continuing this trend into later titles? (i kinda want this to sound unbiased... i love the battle system personally)

ANSWER
the battle system is somewhat different, and they generally switch things up for later series.

ANSWER
they feel they've maxed out the potential in the directors cut, and feel that the Wii U version is the ultimate version if Human Revolution. as for the future, he's not saying.

Thief is an exciting game and a series that I had tons of fun with since the very first game by Looking Glass. Can you describe the kind of tools and upgrades that Garrett will have at his disposal? I'm partial to vine and water arrows myself. Will it also be a relatively open city that Garrett can explore with a mission hub? Or something more linear?

One of the scariest parts in the first Thief was facing the undead. Garrett was not a fighter and the usual "thiefy" tricks didn't often work against the less than human monsters which took players out of their comfort zones. Will there be moments like that in the new Thief and can you talk about an example? Will we see another Shalebridge Cradle experience from Thief: Deadly Shadows? And will the city react to Garrett's notoriety in any way?

In Lightening Returns, what can you offer long time Final Fantasy fans that were disappointed in Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2? I am interested in Final Fantasy Tactics S on the iOS. Is this game coming to America?

Was Final Fantasy Versus XIII just a code name for a game that was always intended to be Final Fantasy XV? If not, how and when did they decide to make it its own title?

I think it might get redmarked though because I mentioned KH3 which isn't at the booth. Still, it's kind of a KH 1.5 Remix question...

I really LOVE Loki's question about what they plan on doing with FFXI. It seems odd to run two subscription based MMOs at the same fanbase. If Bobby can get an answer for that it would make my day.

I wonder if there will be any gallery shots. When I was at E3 years ago, they had people ready to throw up giant signs in your view if you tried to take a photo.

I was more focused on trying to run around finding people that would be willing to answer the questions about the games not on the floor than taking pictures and trying to upload them on the crappy internet connection in South Hall.

Yeah, answers > gallery shots 8 days a week. I was just wondering if in the age of "everyone has a camera phone" they still had people blocking cameras with handheld signs. I need to dig up those pics from my one time at E3, though most of them are just me getting drunk after work ended.

It would not get answered. For the same reason all the others wouldn't get answered. They were only answering some questions about games on the show floor, and even then, they only want to talk about the demo.
