Gameplayer has received word on what one of the new games to be announced by Square Enix at E3 2009 and it is an MMO that's a console exclusive for the PS3. Details inside...
I just don't know, no matter how aweosome the developer might be, that I will ever get used to the idea of MMOs on consoles. It just seems to slow and ponderous for couch gaming.
Well for one thing, PS3 does support keyboard and mouse. Another is we already got a few MMO coming for the PS3.
but there has been so many console MMOs in the wings this generation that have never been released, like Age of Conan. I hope it is not an MMORPG at the very least, or that Pirates of teh Carribean MMO that just got semi-announced. Disney and Square have a relationship as we know.
Or an inside corporate joke. SE and the PS3 are like Superman and Kryptonite. And after wasting the cash on Infinite Undiscovery and The Last Remnant, I'd prefer that their relationship stay that way. And it's nothing against the 360 either, those games were an insult to ANY system (and yes they only "published" them, but publishing something is the same as putting your stamp of approval on it, they are just as guilty in the creation of those monstrosities as Tri Ace was). They should stick to portable titles, where they seem to not mess up as wretchedly. Besides, Demon's Souls sh*ts all over SE's current catalog. And there are much more interesting JRPGs currently released and on the horizon than what they can offer - for me anyhow - no offense to whoever is still anticipating FF XIII. I've already seen all the films in the Star Wars franchise, so I'm fairly familiar with how that title is going to pan out :)
That means...those 3 unannounced games and the new Final fantasy XIII media........... hmmmmmmmmmm. :] Sony's gonna have a good show :]
This means two new MMO's will be announced for the PS3 at E3. http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...
But SE's kinda like the bf/gf who has gone back on their word one too many times, such that you probably wouldn't want to pin too many hopes on their word. I don't believe in the 'exclusivity'.
if you read the article it goes on to say that its not exclusive to the ps3. Making you wonder why the hell they titled it that way
In fact, its still is. The first MMO I played i still think it is the best. It is the only Asian MMO to hit it big in the US.It has so many features that i believe should be standard in the MMO industry. (The best being job system, making a new char for each new class is dumb imo) I for one do not care at all where the this games comes too. Even though I am PS3 fan (all though I own both systems), I would like to see this released in all platforms. Just like FFXI before it, where anyone in the world in any platform can play together(PC,PS2,PS3, AND 360), I would like to see as many ppl play the new SE MMO. I will be the next MMO that i really commit too.
this MMO sounds pretty sweet, if they don't charge any subscription fees like WOW, then i can see the potential of MMO on consoles.
Ah, so Rapture is finally going to be announced. But looking at Square-Enix, PS3 and Exclusive in one sentence makes you wanna say: wadaf*ck?
My bad, I totally glossed over PC somehow in 'console exclusive'. Now I've gone from surprise to mild eyebrow raising. I wonder what the reason for passing over 360 is. They probably have a good one since they're about the only company with an MMO on a next gen console.
@Tony P I'm pretty sure the reason for 360 being left out is most 360 owners have the 20gb model, which is only 13gb or so in space usable, and who knows what MS actually lets companies use out of that. The age of conan devs were complaining about this issue somewhere before working on their 360 port - which is no where to be found yet. The fact of the matter is MMOs are huge games, constantly expanding and you don't want to be boxed into 12-13gb max for a game. FFXI already uses most of the space and since it was released on 360, the expansions we've seen are rehashes of old zones and new quests, with not really that much new content, possibly cause they don't have room on the 360 version. Sure 360 owners can upgrade, but paying 100 bucks then the cost of a full game (then monthly fees) is just ridiculous and no one would do it.
I hear you slappy. MMO's on consoles just don't fit well inside my head. Luckily not all is lost as this is coming out on PC as well. Which when Rapture was first announced way back when it was for Vista and the hd consoles... guess they just dropped the 360 for this game. I say as long as it still gets a PC release all is well.
They glossed over the 360 because not every 360 has a HDD and peripherals conducive to MMO gaming aren't readily available in comparison to the PS3. The most sold 360 bundle in the last year is the one with 256 MB of available space. The aforementioned gloss over will surely be looked into once MS decides to give them some more money.
This is pretty much what they do after they release a couple of bombed exclusives on the 360. They'll keep going back and forth if their games keep sucking.
This turned out to be true, somewhat IT was FFXIV, and so that means it WAS leaked.
My friend Soseki is going to have a gazam when he sees this...
Oh, dear... I think I'm going to cry. Actually, I'll just squeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaalllll llllllllllllllllllllll!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!
square enix? ehm ps3 exclusive? something doesn't sound right here
SquareEnix... exclusive... PS3... does not compute. Wada must have mixed up where his underhanded moneybags came from. The whole idea of MMO's on a console is pretty shaky, in my opinion. I've played them on PC, but I can't see myself grinding it out on my couch with a controller the way I would at my desk on a keyboard/mouse. The Agency is the only console MMO in the pipeline that I'm even remotely interested in, but of course I have no idea what this one will be like.
Wrong reply button
Wada might have yelled to one of the employees "Make our next-o MMO on the BESTo hardaware!" "Whichi one iz it Wada-san!?" "Youuu know whichi one it is!" And so, the employee notes down PS3. The End.
I don't trust gameplayer.com.au
They were right about the Kojima annoucement the other day
but Wada that i don't trust. After saying that FF13 is exclsuive for two years they suddenly change their minds. I can never ever trust SE again, especially with Wada still around.
In general, I agree with Chris about not trust gameplayer.com.au. The majority of their articles are intended to incite flame wars between fanboys and those who like to incite flame wars for the heck of it. It's not that they can't get a few things right some of the time, but it's not like I go in trusting them because they got a few items right some of the time.
I think there is maybe three or four n4gers who hang at the gameplayer site. They put up heaps more articles that never get above 10 or 20 degrees on this site, but as soon as a couple of people on here start a flame war often when there isn't one implied it goes to the top of the site and that is all you see. So it looks like every article is a flame starter, when in truth there is one in every 10 articles which is controversial and the n4g guys turn it into a flame war. Classioc example was the Red Faction Guerrilla review from yesterday which was the first on the Net and it only went to 130 degrees. Anyway that is why I tend to trust them, because 90% of their articles you never see.
not getting my hopes up. got a feeling gna have to shít out money to play this and then find out that its going multiplatform aswel. and besides havent been a mmo fan. got enough games on my plate to handle atm. PS3 FTW!!
It doesn't matter what kind of game they make because it will be mediocre just like the rest of the garbage they make (and will make). I won't be playing it regardless of what it is.
But I gave up on square after the betrayal . They will never ever get a penny from me. yeah sucks to be me i wont be playing none of there games. But they can suck it to
Hey that's great....zzzz
Wow, what's the point of confusing people by saying console exclusive? I thought it was PS3 only at first, but the game is on PS3 and PC.
Well it's the same with most exclusive 360 titles , when they were in fact on pc as well (not all but most)
So we don't consider 360/PC games exclusive to the 360, but we consider PS3/PC games exclusive to the PS3?
Awesome. Can't wait to play it in 5 years. It's Square, so you gotta be realistic...
and PC exclusive... where is the love for my 360?
LOL dude. It's not like the 360 is lacking love from SE, and besides you never know when those SE games are released. 4 years from now perhaps?
ya been waiting for this
it makes no sense.
When dealing with Square-Enix, all times the words PS3 and exclusive are used, the word exclusive should appear with quotations. For example, Final Fantasy XIII should have been touted as a PS3 "exclusive" instead of a PS3 exclusive. The reasoning is because it wasn't. So, this MMO is hearby categorized as a PS3 "exclusive".
Square making a Ps3 exclusive has the world gone mad lol or has the head of the company realised the mistakes he has been making. But until I see photos of boxart with a PS3 logo i find it hard to believe they'll make a Ps3 exclusive.
LOL i'll believe it when i see it. square has already devoted themselves to microsoft. unless the ps3 picks up some real steam and wada makes more bad decisions to the point that the stock holders hold him responsible and demand change.. i just dont see it. ps3 doesnt even have last remnant yet and that wasnt even a good game. ffxi port? really? and now ps3 exclusive mmo? after they already announced rapture to be multiplatform? the more i type the less i believe it.
They make awful games.
be if it wasn't for the PlayStation family
Not that FFVII would be what it is. Xenogears, considering its subject matter, dead on drawing board.
Even if they do only have themselves to blame for it.
Looks like they learned their lesson.
WHAAAAA!(+*>?) T F!!!!! This is a typo...gotta be...right? they mean 360 exclusive. If not, wow. That would be a MEGATON @ Sony's conf Well, we will see soon...6 more days
I doubt an MMO would be MEGATON :D It´ s kinda lame many PS3 owners find hard to believe a SE game could even appear on the PS3. Well, I guess SE has done a lot to lose fans's trust. BTW, I have very high hopes on Resonance of Fate from Sega. I heard it got a very interesting semi-realtime combat system. Something like VC's. Very interesting indeed.
I agree Raz, but look at teh recent history. FFXIII and VS are the only games that seem like will at least be main PS3 games.
i HOPE its not FF XI (wich im pretty sure it will be, still , hope not lol) 4 years from now... a game from ps2..... dam! put something new SE!!
As the title says "exclusive" and FFXI is on the 360.
I'd care if my attention wasn't on Demon's Souls and White Knight Chronicles. Sorry SE :(
M$ lose money.
It better be good.
the number of MMO announced on the PS3 is 7. 3 from SoE: - Free Realms (f2p launch on PC the last month, count already 2 milions of active accounts) - DC universe (City of Heroes with DC theme universe and a gameplay design for console) - The Agency (FPS-TPS action MMO) 1 from NCsoft (still unannounced, maybe is Guild Wars, Aion or Blade and Soul). 1 from Square Enix: - Rapture (code name, is announced like a very different MMO from FFXI) 2 by Q entertainment (yep, the guys from Rez, Meteos and Lumines): - Angel Love Online - Angel Senki (the two game are conversion of PC f2p MMO with microtransaction) There a lot of MMO for a console...
Don't forget that they are (FINALLY) porting over FFXI itself to the PS3. That actually makes 8 PS3 MMOs to be coming (yeah, I know FFXI is multiplat. So sue me!).
does this have to do with the article image?
Read the title
its not 11 cause its exclusive 360 has ff 11 so it will be something new still couldnt rly care tho.
next year at Microsofts e3 we are bringing the MMO over to the 360 because we want more people to experience it.
Why Couldn't SE announce their games within a year before release instead of making us wait 4-5 yrs. from now?! so annoying...
dont know what the hell their going to do half the time. I dont even listen to SE anymore. Their ish will get here when it gets here. This MMO will probably be about as exclusive as FF13. They make some cool games when they want but their words are a mere joke as far as I'm concerned.
What happened? M$'s check now voided?
whats up SE ? thing didnt go well with M$ ? or did u just have noticed that your supporters are playstaion fans ?
Naaa, dont believe this for one second
