Square Enix has released a new trailer for Star Ocean: The Last Hope, which is coming to the Xbox 360 in 2009.
This makes be feel good about my 360... it's got some good quality games to look forward to also. Xbox 360 needs some of this. I want to know more games coming out for it.
i smell desperateness .
Can't wait for the game!
I am new to this Star Ocean series but just downloaded the trailer from the market place and it looks really really good.Just the fact that it is a Sci-fi JRPG sounds really good.Maybe this will be the Japanese equvilent to Mass Effect.
Still can't believe it's coming to 360 though! A Mass Effect JRPG looks like a pretty good description. Kudos to MS. :)
World War 3? Oh that's original :) And I wanted to see some nice gameplay. But the game's storyline looks like it will be fun to follow.
"World War 3? Oh that's original :)" Has world war 3 been done in a game? And it appears to me the the WWIII concept was a segway to the actually story. Besides, GTA IV (Sucessful but not original by far) MSG4 (ditto), I guess what I'm saying is a series has to start somewhere. I'm also thinking that there are no more original paths an RPG can take theses days, that would be worthy of making a video or game of. Let's have fun with this, can anyone come up with what would be a good and interesting plot for a RPG, that they think would actually sell?
Anyone else notice that? Normally, in fact always in trailers, if it's muliti-platform they never put in any siding at the end, probably out of fear of lawsuits. If anything it may be just timed-exclusive, but with MS's money and with the way Bach and everyone has been charging on it wouldn't suprise me if they paid extreme amounts for this. Think of it as this, Lost Odyssey sold extremely well everywhere (for console ratios anyway), Blue Dragon selling well in the west and it kept Mistwalker under MS's belt thanks to their advertising campaigns. Could we see the same with S-E?
I don't realy keep in touch with JRPG's but I thought this game was a port from the PS3. So by what your saying it seems that this game is "so far" exclusive to the 360? and that would mean the 360 has pulled another JRPG out of the PS3's hands?
So far, yeah, it seems exclusive. Everyone was waging it would be on the PS3 because it was on Sony consoles prior. To my knowledge though, this is the very start of the story arc in the series, much like DMC has its chronology backwards, so it would make little to no difference. If anything, references would be missed, but so far, it looking to be exclusive in some form or another.
Trailer reminds me of Phantasy Star Online.
Coolness looks like it could turn up into something. To bad it's just a teaser trailer :( but 09 is a ways away.
when we can get a better look at the game i'll have a better idea; but i'm not really fond of another ...."after ww3" game.
The 360 does horrible in Japan... but the 360 has all the JRPG's? Makes me wonder who realy buys JRPG's more, the east or the west.
It's not necessarily that people in Japan don't buy RPG's. They just don't buy 360's, thus not buying the games on the 360. Any of those RPGS will have much better success here in the states.
Square gives me headaches, releasing multiplatform would be great, but why only 360? makes no sense to me at all. They just gonna ignore the fanbase they accumulated with previous Star Ocean, and especially with SO3 on the PS brand!?
ohh please don't come with that... how about konami that already released a metal gear game on nintendo, sony, microsoft and PC platforms just to release the game on the PS3? how about those fans? well same here... sometimes money talks and microsoft is doing the talking...
never got to play it on the PS. Can anyone chime in on the type of RPG, if you know your JRPG's? @Levy Above - Chill out buddy "They just gonna ignore the fanbase they accumulated with previous Star Ocean, and especially with SO3 on the PS brand!?" Were you old enough to know what happened when SQUARE did the same sh^t with Nintendo Fans? do you know gaming history? if you do, then this has happened before, this is nothing new. Look up franchises and where they Originated and how they jumped ship.
Star Ocean is my 2nd favorite rpg franchise other than Final Fantasy. I'm so pumped up for this. SO Till The End Of Time is hands down one of the best rpgs to ever come out. I hope this one can live up to it. But I'm sure its going to be great cause i cant think of a game that SE has put out that sucks. God I wish it was dropping this week lol
Are at it again. And the japanese are so easily influenced by teh money mongering monster known as Microsoft. AND IM" FROM THE [email protected]# GO figure. Damnit Square and all you "SELL-OUTS" get outta the DEVILS POCKETS. Fools
getting out of sony's pockets....it's about time.
Seems silly to believe that... They are still with Sony if for no other reason then Sony has a 10% stake in SE... but they do have 3 other bigger investors that also have a say. Sony will see this game - SE can't afford to avoid such a huge market and the PS3 is fast becoming the 2nd largest console worldwide.
Exactly. Also, keep in mind that this is a MICROSOFT event. They would not announce a Playstation 3 version of this game at this event.
Star ocean 4 is coming to the ps3. The only one that i dont see comng to the ps3 is infinity discovery. The previous start ocean game are going to be release for the psp, with one of the game having a trailer of star ocean 4.
Square wants to win over "Western Gamers" which they will NOT with the PS3. This has nothing to do with Japanese Gamers its the media & certain fan base (should be obvious which one) putting those words into Microsoft & like someone said Square started with Nintendo first. So you gamers supporting the specific fan base better get used to this
Will this game make since if I haven't played any of the others??
so in the year 2076 we will be dressed like circus clowns and carry around big swords to new planets pretty stupid backstory imo lol.. couldn't they do better than World War 3 and "let's go into space"
I WANT THIS, BUT ONLY HAVE A PS3. Its not like I would buy a 360 for it, but dang, I want that.
star ocean 1 and 2 remakes on psp....star ocean 3 ps2, star ocean 4 360???? that make sense???? obviously its timed exclusive but still, what the heck
