It's a no-brainer that the PS4 will dominate Japan

Hopefully this will also mean a greater willingness to localize games for North America and Europe. I enjoy some good JRPGs.

RedDevils1593d ago

I want my JRPG, I hate FPS games none of the game worth $40 let alone $60!

I really miss those niche games that would get 5/10 or 6/10 reviews in the PS1/PS2 days that made it overseas that turned out to be 10/10 just because I took the time to understand them.

Maybe they can see glimpses of the PS2 era in the PS4 as well.

Seriously, what's up with TLG?? My guess is the moved development to the PS4. I don't know what else to think, they don't give any updates.

My guess is that there's just no dev team on it and it's taking a while to get one for it.

There was an article a few weeks back showing Sony hiring for it for PS3 cell development for it so who knows.

I personally think it's going to be launching 2014-15 early 16.

PS2 era is back. Now for a flood of awesome games not seen since the ps2 glory days.

This was a bad thing this gen, I mean look what happened to ff because of being "motivated" by the west and many other japense devs.

I hope this means something other then development philosophy.

Japanese devs inspired by western ideas resulted in Demon's Souls and Dark Souls...two of my favorite games of all time.
