The company rented out a mansion in Hawaii, and flew out famed game designer Tomonobu Itagaki to showcase the game's first playable preview copy. About 25 or so game writers got to hang out by the pool...

And, to be fair, play some games... (Tomonobu Itagaki is the Japanese man sitting on the couch)
