MCV: The publisher of new Final Fantasy title Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII has claimed that the title is the biggest release on PSP this year.
No actually God of War COO was the biggest release of 2008.:P
I hate all rpg that arnt turnbased ok most FF started to go rotten when it ent with sony Then it lost it completely after it stopped being turnbased. I knew somethign was wrong when FFXI was released1111111111
ff12' battles system was good. it was fresh, and although you had to do little, was very well designed. so what if the story was one of the most boring/dull of all FFs? so what if outside of Balthier, all characters were dry and forgetful (penelo who?)? so what if the license system was a watered-down ff10 sphere grid system that looked like squeenix forgot about till the last few months of development and unfortunately had to release the game before all the kinks were worked out?
this that american like gameplay mainly yeh i like gameplay but i also love story now. I used to hate anime but my friend gave me some crap andi t was pretty good11111 so i think story is important The anime my friend gave me has some really good story and i only watched it becuase he said people who like jrpgs will like anime I still kinda hate anime though. Its not american thats why
Yeah I gave up on FF a while ago, they removed turn-base from it and now it's so.. idk.. it's not the same. That's why I love Lost Odyssey so much. The Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery aren't turn based either, I'm hoping Star Ocean 4 will be turn based but since Square Enix is involved, I highly doubt it. That will be out in 2009, I doubt I can wait that long. We need more turn-based RPG/JRPG's. EDIT: Sorry this isn't in the Open Zone, I kinda took this way off topic.
... should i get it? so far monster hunter freedom 2 is the biggest game on my psp (and i doubt that crisis core will be as big to me) but i neeed some more games
wtf you level up randomly you re doing limite break randomly i hate this game go ge it if you want but that my opinion
Well I do believe Crisis Core is the main reason the PSP is selling so much now. I mean Monster Hunter 1, 2, and 2G have sold well for it but they didn't increase the hardware sales for the most part. Crisis Core is a decent RPG but besides story they made a game for FF7 fans that is nothing like FF7 :( fumble in my eyes specially when they make everything go by a random turn of the wheel and you can't even pick when the wheel does its thing.
Are you serious?! Monster Hunter 2G, which was released only in Japan, is the biggest PSP title of 2008, with 2,3 mio copies! And it has moved SOO much hardware in Japan that they sold more PSP's then DS and Wii's combined.... And it is still selling very good.
I am serious. Look at hardware sales before CC then look at them after. Monster Hunter didn't do that it was all the new Final Fantasy.
No doubt that FFVII:CC moved a lot of hardware, but you're saying Monster Hunter 2G didn't move any... But that game is redicolusly poular over there, and i remember that there was a lot of news about it moving A LOT of hardware!
Oh okay I see yeah I'm not denying Monster Hunter moved hardware I'm just saying it seems that Crisis Core is the main culprit in this spur of sales.
This is of no suprise to me. Either your playing Crisis Core, God Of War, or monster hunter since there are not a lot of triple A titles released so far in 2008. That is untill they release Kingdom Hearts.
To be honest, as much as I love Crisis Core, Square-Enix has lost a lot of credibility with me. Mostly for taking previously PlayStation only series' like Star Ocean over to Sony's competition. They seem to be having some kind of love affair with Microsoft and while I will of course be buying Star Ocean 4 on my 360, I would feel more comfortable playing the game with a DualShock 3 in my hand. For some reason JRPGs don't feel natural with the 360's controller. Just a personal thought people. Feel free to disagree, but I invite you to inform me of your own opinions.
I disagree because really all you need for a jrpg is an analog stick to move your guy and go thru menus along with a button to do everything and another button for cancel. Look at Opoona for the Wii it's a jrpg that just uses the Nunchuck attachment. For fighting you actually use the analog for your main attack by bringing it back and flickin it forward. I mean yes everyone likes different controllers but don't be mad because a 3rd party franchise moves to another console because that's what they do! Besides Square Enix doesn't have a love affair with MS they are making games for every single system and mobile phone they can get their hands on.
You could very well be right. They are publishing games on every console that is true. They retain the meat of the series that is Final Fantasy on PS3, and still give other consoles games. I still believe that Star Ocean 4 is being released on the 360 because that system released first. The series has a history of long development, I'll cite SO3 as my example here. SO3 was delayed in North America for over a year simply because it took so long to finalize the game. As for my statement about the controller, you're also right. All it takes is a left analog stick and some buttons. I should have explained my point better. I mean that the controller construction is more natural for me. I've been playing those JRPGs with the same controller design for over 10 years now and it just feels normal for me. For function, I agree with you. For feel, I disagree. I should agree they aren't having a love affair with MS, that was my own bias at the time before looking at all the facts. Even though they're releasing SO4 on the 360, I will wish it would have been on PS3. Good on you. Thanks for pointing out the faults in my statement. I am more than happy to admit my own faults and credit people where they are right.
