Where the hell are the ps3 exclusives damn it

That is how all rpg's should play like. Not boring broken gameplay, or turn based.

Looks hot. But if this isn't for the ps3 they need to start showing their ps3 stuff.

NCSoft is a pretty talented developer (I used to play City of Heroes a lot)..... I'm interested to see what they could do with the ps3 hardware.
