Dark Souls II Won’t Be A PS3 Exclusive In Japan

FromSoftware announced Dark Souls II for Japan. Like Dark Souls, Namco Bandai will handle the Western market as the game’s publisher, but FromSoftware will retain publishing rights for Japan. (Dark Souls 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I know it is quite harsh what i am about to say but really nobody cares in japan if dark souls 2 does come out on the 360

It`s more a harsh reality.

In all honesty, I think no one cares about these types of things like exclusives from 3rd parties. Hell, even ME 1 came to the PS3 eventually. And you can bet an eye that the reason MGS4 wont be coming to X360 is the fact of the all Apple and Sony jokes that wouldnt sit well on a MicroSoft system. The game would need serious tweaks, new voice actors dialogs and changed cutscenes to make sense.

The only exclusives now are first party exclusives. If you want Halo and Gears, you got Xbox. If you want Uncharted, Infamous, God of War, GT and such, you got Playstation. Everything else will be multiplat eventually.

I didnt even finish dark souls yet.

You're right, not enough Xbox 360 owners in Japan to make any difference. It's clear they don't want the system over there even after Microsoft tried to offer games they wanted like Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey.

Trueeee.

It's all about the sales. Lets hope that they fix the frame rate for the console version.
AdmiralSnake  +   679d ago
9/10 it will get canceled anyway....

This happens almost all the time.

The game or the japan 360 ver.?
AdmiralSnake  +   679d ago
Japan 360 version most def.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   679d ago
Yeah probably, there just simply isn't enough market for it to justify the cost.

Well J-blaze also wants to play games between bashing Naughty dog.
miyamoto  +   679d ago
yeah he keeps trolling me how Naughty Dog made games suck and Japanese made games are of the highest order not knowing that Hirokazu Yasuhara of Sonic Team was with Naughty Dog as the game designer for the Uncharted games.

Jak 2 (2003) — Game Designer
Jak 3 (2004) — Game Designer
Jak X: Combat Racing (2005) — Game Designer
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (2007) — Game Designer
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009) — Game Designer
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (2011) — Game Designer

he is just one crazy not so smart hater XD

Look at his rant

jblaze:

"dood are you serious comparing a 12 years old Ellen Page ripoff gangster to Lightning? oh please....whenever there is an article about this game or ND there is always drama and stupidity in it, i mean ppl here try way to hard to show their fake excitement for this game, just pathetic"

fake excitement? ha ha!

"also, ND said that they will "OWN" the action survival genre and that they will change the freaking industry, after watching all the trailers i can say they are nowhere near what these arrogant devs said...the new trailer made the game look even more generic imo "

"plus, i hope they put some good scientific reasons/explanation for the outbreak like in RE games but i doubt it"

*what a pity ...

i wish atlus would just pick up the franchise again and be the only distributor of the game. it just feels like namco is taking the game away from its roots...

Microsoft should just pull out of Japan. It's quite obvious that if it's not Playstation or Nintendo zero f*cks will be given.
Dark-soul  +   679d ago
I heard this game will have new director? is this true? i am really worried if it is true, becouse first two games were perfect and i dont want no one to spoil them.
However music in trailer i liked so much, i have no words to describe and lets asume credit should go to director for that? couse he picks all the things? then its first good impresion, but i am still worried.
