Sony owns the ip, of course it would be exclusive. Also, I remember someone from this site said this awhile back.

interesting...so how can one say that ps3 is getting shafted with the rpgs, if the console is getting both final fantasys, white knight chronicles and now Dark Cloud 3. oh...erm, doesn't sony own the ip or something?

Sony owns the IP. Of course its exclusive!
Thats like stating that Shadow of the colossus 2 is exclusive. Well DUH.

Sony owns the IP and publishing rights
It's the equivalent of saying Gears of War will never come to the PS3 because MS owns the IP and publishing rights. I guess this is not really news other than to inform us that Dark Cloud 3 is in the works.

I agree the RPGs coming for PS3 just seem more fun and more interesting. The PS3 RPGs all seem to be doing something different or atleast something hasn't been done to death. Brand love aside i liked Dark Cloud because of city creator and the potential that can be done on the PS3 is huge. White Knight Story is one of the few games that blew me away a year ago when it was first shown at TGS. The way the characters moved i've never seen in a video game before. And FFXIII is obviously going to be good because that is the definitive next iteration of FF.

Veryangryxbot - Is there going to be a Shadow of the Colossus 2?

I heard the ICO team were working on PS3 titles, but I've heard no news on SotC 2. I hope you're right.
Tomdc  +   2627d ago
neva heard of the game lolz but I do love RPGs so im off to accurate research land! aka Wikipedia!
Jpinter  +   2627d ago
This news is soooo old. I posted this news back in October 07.

Veryangryxbot  +   2627d ago
Of course Shadow of the Colossus 2 will come out! Part 1 was a massive hit.
Team ICO currently working on a new project. They announced nothing. It might be SOTC2 or it might not. Either way, its PS3 exclusive and probably very good.

PSMania is the worst italian magazine...i don't trust anyone of their rumor...
Xakep  +   2627d ago
Uh that's not that surprising if it were being developed, doesn't Sony own the IP to Dark Cloud anyway?
resistance100  +   2627d ago
Still i wasn't expecting this game to be in the works
superman  +   2627d ago
Dark Cloud 2 was exaxtly like a Zelda game. It was so amazing, i hope its true.
Fighter  +   2627d ago
Dark Cloud 2 was freakin amazing. I like the parts where you would build a little town from scratch to alter the future of the area. One of the best games in the PS2 library.
iamtehpwn  +   2627d ago
Dark Cloud has always been a great game series
But It's intent was to copy Zelda from the start.
I remember Sony saying it was a "Zelda-killer".
When Wind Waker went Celshaded, it was also notable that Dark Cloud 2 decidedly went Celshaded as well.

I would HOPE to high hell that Dark Cloud 3 would return to the original Dark Cloud's gameplay and Art style.

ive never heard of this game before!
Wildarmsjecht  +   2627d ago
you owe it to yourself to pick up the first 2. maybe not the first cuz it's not as good as the second, but still solid titles.
SoulKillah  +   2627d ago
This rumor...

resistance100  +   2627d ago

Jok3r  +   2627d ago
Me too
Same here! I LOOOOOVE Dark Cloud and even it was a "random dungeon rpg" I played it for hundred of hours and loved EVERY moment of it! I thougt it had a very coozy feeling to it! Damn I am excited now!!!
Fighter  +   2627d ago
This would make sense
Level 5 usually does DS and PS2 games and they are working on a future PS3 game, White Knight Chronicles, which is an RPG and looks very promising.

With the superb sales of MGS4 and PS3 hardware more AAA Japanese developers will give the PS3 a chance and I welcome Dark Cloud 3 anytime. Dark Cloud 2 is one of my favorite PS2 games.

sinncross  +   2627d ago

Jack Bauer  +   2627d ago
this story is very old, i remember a thread like this a long time ago and reporting it, and im sure i failed so you cant find it anymore... sony published the first 2 and im sure owns the rights too...i never would have thought otherwise... Attention! Halo 4 will be exclusive to MS platforms!
Bill Gates  +   2627d ago
Hey, well what do you know, Gamesblow said this a loooooong time ago.
Syronicus  +   2627d ago
Dark Cloud - One of my all time favorite games.
If this is true I will be picking it up fo sho.
SilPho  +   2627d ago
Ok that does it, I'll go and buy the other 2. I've been thinking about it for ages and it keeps popping up every where I go. I might as well bow to the gaming gods and buy the damn thing already.

I don't care about exclusivity of Dark Cloud 3, as long as they make it and it's on the PS3 at least.
Marojado  +   2627d ago
I had a lot of fun with the first two, hopefully this is true. If it's due out March 2009, maybe they could drop us some info at E3 as well as on White Knight... *wishful thinking*
jkhan  +   2627d ago
Forget about DarkCloud 3, did they said White Knight Chronicles is coming this year?? :D
kewlkat007  +   2627d ago
I'm saying the same
never played the dark cloud series so not sure how it stacks up to final fantasy since it seems to be the benchmark against every 360 Jrpg.

What about "White Knight Chronicles"? I have not seen anything about that game in like a year
turbidDwarf  +   2627d ago
I've never played any of them. What kind or RPG is it?
PirateThom  +   2627d ago
I only had the first one, but it was an Action RPG. It was very like 3D Zelda games, such as the combat and dungeons, but the whole goal involved collecting items to "rebuild" the overworld - houses, fences, and so on.

It was a pretty cool game.
Delive  +   2627d ago
Loved dark cloud 2 and still play it on occasion. Would like to see a more open world though, instead of all the narrow path dungeons and forests. Add some co-op to it (just my wish list) and it's heaven. Speaking of great PS2 games I'm looking for, Bring on Champions of Norrath: Rise of the Ogres or some crazy #### like that.
Farsendor1  +   2627d ago
dark cloud 1 and 2 was awesome be great to play the 3rd one
SIX  +   2627d ago
DC 2
Was a very good game. My wife is going to be really happy. She doesn't play games, but for some odd reason she put 90 hours into that game. I'm still baffled by that when I think about it.
ELite_Ghost  +   2627d ago
no need to put it on 360, ps3 sales are going up! :)
hokis4ever  +   2627d ago
This game
Believe it or not (dark cloud 2), is what got me in to RPG's... I'm looking forward to more info on this title.
G1TR4P3D  +   2627d ago
worst PS2 launch game.
J@D  +   2627d ago
March 2009? That's sound kinda fishing... I mean White Knights Chronicles its not finish yet and DC3 its "supposed" to be release next year it's hard to believe unless the game receive an announcement on this year E3 or the Tokyo Game Show this year it HARDLY IMPOSSIBLE. If the rumor is true HURRAHHHH!!!! DC3 ^___^
Cerberus_Hunter  +   2627d ago
I can wait to see some gameplay
