EDGE took a trip down memory lane with some of the staff at Platinum Games in its latest issue. One of the games discussed was Infinite Space, the studio’s first and only handheld game.
I claim that it should have been a PSP if not a PS3 title. Wonder if they can port it.
I'm not sure that would have helped the sales numbers in North America. I can't believe it didn't sell well: to me, it's the best DS RPG that's not a remake. Oh well. As for a PS3 or PSP port... eh, I'm not sure that would work too well. The style of the combat wouldn't really mesh with what people expect from HD consoles, and the 3D models would have to be completely redone to meet with base consumer expectations.
As a gamer - one who's into sci-fi yet didn't by a DS for one sci-fi game - I could care less about sales. I personally shouldn't have to care about sales. And as for the HD console generation, at this point I only see it as the most limited and crippled game generation ever. At least the latter part of the Atari era had the excuse of devs doing blow off hookers.
