I would give it an honorable mention. Downloaded the trailers from my Japanese Live account today. If you haven't seen them yet, check them out:

It reminds me of Lost Odyssey with a dash of SO: 4 thrown in; I'll be picking it up for sure.

Edit: @ Kareshi_X. Pretty sure it's due fall of this year. NB is publishing it and there's already an English trailer floating around somewhere (could be on the page that I linked). The dub/ voice acting is surprisingly decent too. Cheers.

Kareshi_X2972d ago

I agree.
lets hope It gets an English release this year.

kissmeimgreek2972d ago

im not to familiar with it. does it play like FF and SO? hmm sounds interesting.

wanderofys2972d ago

I hope it's better than the first Magna Carta. That game was horrible.

Rob0g0rilla2972d ago (Edited 2972d ago )

But the battle system looks pretty good in that game. It looks like it has some battle elements from SO4, which I heard has a fun battle system, but was lacking in the voice acting department. Also, I wouldn't push this game to the side because the first one might of sucked. That's not the best excuse to ignore a game.

Those guys are idiots. And they have the nerve to cal call out the author...

How hard is it to understand that L4D2, Conviction, and ME2 are not exclusive. The same going to games like The Agency and DC Universe: They are not exclusive. The list was about upcoming 360 exclusives not Microsoft exclusives.

Chris3992972d ago (Edited 2972d ago )

Magna Carta 2 appears to be one of the most polished JRPGs this gen. It's nothing like the original (which was a 2002 PC port to start with; whereas this was built from scratch).

My self-esteem isn't so fragile that I am threatened by games on a console that is not of my choice. People seriously need to grown up around here.

To each their own, I suppose. Oh well, I'm off to play a little Demon's Souls or perhaps finish off Blue Dragon (had that one sitting on my shelf for over a year now). Being a multi console owner, I have a variety of choices. Being a brand loyalist gets you nowhere in life. Have fun investing your emotions into faceless corporations that have utterly no concern for your welfare and solely for your cash.

I'll be playing games.

Kushan2972d ago

Back in my day, a "console exclusive" was still pretty exclusive.

La Chance2971d ago

its crazy he "forgot" a lot of games, and the first paragraph of his article fails real hard.

JokesOnYou2971d ago (Edited 2971d ago )

No matter how you want to label 360/PC games the fact is they are NOT on ps3. Console gaming is much bigger than PC gaming so in reality 360/PC games still push the 360 just like a true exclusive does....that's why 360/PC games still outsell many exclusives found only on ps3, we know games sell hardware and with 360 outselling ps3 in two major territories like the US and UK, plus a couple smaller markets like Australia even with having a lot games being available on PC its obvious that its been a successful strategy by micro. I'm sure micro is pleased to make a few extra dollars off of pc/ps3 owners who don't own a 360 the same time it only increases the popularity of 360 games. If you look at the healthy 360 hardware/software sales its plain to see that the ps3/pc owners who are excited about the pc version of 360 games is a plus for pc, 360 and and since most gamers don't have unlimited funds that's money not spent on a sony platform game/brand/content.


FamilyGuy2971d ago

This pair of articles are really screwed up. i can kinda understand this one because pc releases stop some game from being exclusive, im sure theres others though. The PS3 list is worse though because he mentions games that are not coming out this year.

Clubptxxx2971d ago

"Did anyone actually look at the media that I linked? Or are we all just spam clicking "disagree"? :)"

"My self-esteem isn't so fragile that I am threatened by games on a console that is not of my choice. People seriously need to grown up around here."

No but it's fragile enough to get butthurt over being disagreed with.

Being a PS3 owner, having changed over from Xbox, I can say that I no longer give a crap because I buy games for my PC now. Sure games come out that I want, and sometimes they get bought. But most of the time I just play Team Fortress 2 or Fallout 3 on my computer. These lists are dumb is the takeaway here people.

Tarasque2971d ago

Yeah "Console exclusive" means console exclusive, unless fanboys are saying PC's are consoles now. I mean seriously get it for the 360 or get it for the PC money still goes to MS.

raztad2971d ago

Console exclusiviness is a non-sensical concept and it defeats the whole exclusiveness idea. Exclusive is something you CANT find elsewhere. Look at KZ2, inFAMOUS, Halo:ODST. Those are exclusives.

If some games like L4D and now L4D2 run on PC they are not exclusives in any way. I can play them without a 360. I think the idea of exclusiviness is force the custumer to buy certain console cause he/she cant play that game anywhere else. For example FFXIV, Conviction, Alan Wake aren exclusives either.

Please dont come with PC prices as an argument. A medium spec PC is pretty cheap by now and you can run games like Gears better than on 360, btw everybody has a decent PC nowadays.

La Chance2971d ago (Edited 2971d ago )

"Please dont come with PC prices as an argument. A medium spec PC is pretty cheap by now and you can run games like Gears better than on 360, btw everybody has a decent PC nowadays."

You're lieing, it costs expensive to have a PC that can run a game like Splinter Cell Conviction for instance.
And 90% of people have a decent PC that allows them to surf on the net, use Office etc easily. NOT to play videogames like you play on your console.

It costs the more than the price of a 360 Premium every couple of years to keep games running on a PC.

So just cut all that nonsense already, aaallright!

pippoppow2971d ago

Finally a web site who knows the meaning of exclusive. A game you can only play on one certain platform only. This means you have to buy a certain gaming platform to play an exclusive game. Just like how ff14, the agency and dc universe is not exclusive due to being able to play those games also on a PC. The 360 diehard fans seem to feel so hurt that alot of the best games are also on a PC meaning it is not exclusive. Funny how the MS worshippers cling to the idea that PC gaming is too expensive for everyone while it it just may be too expensive for them. You being unable to afford a gaming rig for around $700 doesn't equate everyone else. I have a PS3 and agaming PC so that means I'll be enjoying the best exclusive PS games as well as superior versions of PC games that will also be on the 360 like ME2, SC: conviction and Alan Wake. Go cry on another 360 fans shoulders that the 360 hardly has any exclusive or games that are currently exclusive which will most likely show up a year later on the PS3. If a web site claims a game is exclusive when it is not then it is false advertising as people may feel like they have to buy a certain platform to enjoy the game when it isn't the case. Good job Tech2.

JokesOnYou2971d ago (Edited 2971d ago )

A decent PC that will allow you to run 360/PC games on high settings is more expensive than a 360 or ps3....and consequently by PAYING MORE than the cost of a 360 you STILL can't play ALL of the best 360 exclusives, so unless you're a diehard PC only gamer -OR- a ps brand loyalists who'd rather spend more cash for a pc vs buying a 360 then its a easy choice for most gamers looking to play 360 games....which is again why 360 sales are unaffected because the vast majority of people who want past, current, and future 360/PC games will walk in the store and just buy the "cheaper" 360, and the type of ps fans who would rather spend more on a pc, + future upgrades vs buying a 360 are really an INSIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGE of gamers....this thinking only ADDS to micro's overall profits IRONICALLY from those who for whatever reason don't want to buy a 360. A win for pc, a win for 360, a DOUBLE win for micro, and IF pc/ps3 owners don't mind the extra cash spent on their gaming rig its a win for them too. Yeah everybody WINS!...err, except sony in this case.


slopeseeker2971d ago

I consider myself a pc gamer more than a console gamer but I also own a 360 and ps3 for titles that don't come to pc. I do a minor upgrade to my pc about every 1 to 1.5 years and I do a major upgrade about every 2.5 to 3 years. A minor upgrade could be more RAM, moving up to the fastest processor my mobo can support, changing out a video card or upgrading/adding a hard drive. A major upgrade means a new Motherboard/processor/RAM which may force you to a new power supply aswell. Doing this I spend about $400 a year on my gaming rig just to keep it current. I NEVER buy the latest greatest processor and videocard either. Add maybe another $200-250 per year if you want to always be running a high end rig. Considering that you still can't play all the 360 exclusives and that the 360 can be had for as little as $200 I find it REALLY hard to believe that anyone could make an argument for not buying a 360. Actually, I can't see anyone making an argument for not buying the ps3 either if they are a pc gamer. Besides, buying the pc version of a game that's not on the ps3 only helps ms secure console exclusives since the people that would normally be demanding a version for ps3 just bought it on the pc instead. That way the dev looses fewer sales even though they didn't bother with a ps3 version and beleive me, ms makes this point when they are trying to secure a console exclusive.

wanderofys2971d ago

No no no, you misunderstand. I ACTUALLY hope it's better than the first one. I own a 360, I'd like to pick it up if it's any good. I'm just hoping they improve upon the first, because it wasn't good.

ObviousTruth2971d ago (Edited 2971d ago )

they are console exclusives. the fact that they are coming to windows as well is because MS can make more money and so can the developer. i'm sure when a company is deciding to go exclusive, it's a pretty big bonus to know they can also release for PC.

i don't see why the sony-only crew acts like this is a one-up in their favor. pretty silly.

if sony had its own OS, you can be sure most of its exclusives would be going to PC as well. it's just business.

here's the argument sony fanboys love to make: "i have a ps3 and a pc, so i don't need a 360." fine, that's mostly true. that doesn't make the 360 a bad system. and 360 fanboys love to say "3rd party titles are better on 360, and if you don't have a pc or ps3, then we get just as many good exclusives (from a console perspective)." fine, also mostly true.
I have a ps3 and a 360 and a pc so i have access to everything. so i guess i'm a me fanboy cuz i get to play more games than 360 or sony fanboys. i am declaring myself the official winner of the console war. grats me!

JokesOnYou2971d ago (Edited 2971d ago )

"Considering that you still can't play all the 360 exclusives and that the 360 can be had for as little as $200 I find it REALLY hard to believe that anyone could make an argument for not buying a 360."

-You nailed it right there, I mean its fine if thats how any gamer wants to spend their money, I don't have a problem with it at all but some say as if their EXPECTING A PRIZE for spending MORE MONEY to have the ability to play ONLY a portion of 360 games. I think its only fair when pc or pc/ps3 gamers remind us that their getting the "teh better" pc version that console gamers remind them that pc gamers also on avg spend 3 or 4 times as much compared to the cost of the most expensive 360....and as you noted in the end the pc software sales tranlate to more profits for micro and a bargaining chip for micro with devs. -lol I guess that should only matter to you if you work for sony or you're a diehard sony fan, really its a great strategy on micro's part...and whats weird is although 360 games news gets alot of attention from so many pc/ps3 gamers, the PC gaming news section is usually empty on this site. I can't quite put my finger on WHY that is...hmmm?

just wanted to point out ME2 is still exclusive to MS platforms (360 and PC). lost planet was only a timed exclusive and dead rising was only on 360 and not PS3 cuz i dont think it was out yet but im not sure.

Kamikaze1352972d ago

Anyway, this is looking like a great year for all consoles and even handhelds. Even the Wii is gaining some ground through the eyes of the hardcore gamer. I just hope there are still surprises in store =D

poopsack2972d ago

i wanted to point out that your comment wasnt really needed in any way, unless u need constant reassurance that u have MS platform exclusives.. ehh

Obama2972d ago

No Dead Rising 2 is confirmed to be multi-platform.

theEnemy2972d ago

Dead Rising 2 is coming to the PS3 aswell.

2972d ago
ShabzS2972d ago

dead rising 1 is going to remain on 360 .... dead rising 2 is coming to all platforms ... maybe even the pc ... personally thats the game i'm looking forward to this year ..... the first dead rising was really next gen in terms of gameplay and style.. it was just super fun.. i must have clocked in 20 odd hours playing it on my 360

kissmeimgreek2971d ago (Edited 2971d ago )

you guys are stupoid. i never mentioned DR2 all i said was that DR wasnt really exclusive as the it was developed before the ps3 was on the market. oh and i support al consoles. im not a fanboy.

@knavex. im not trying to reassure my self of anything. all im trying to do is clear up what confused me in the article for others.

HarukoHex2972d ago

while most of these are not 360 exclusives I do love how many games are now coming out.

*my pre-order list so far, most about 30-40 dollars already paid*
splinter cell - conviction
Forza 3
Dirt 2
Battlefield BC 2
Operation flashpoint
assasins creed 2
halo 3 ODST

yes i spend alot of money on games, last fall i spent close to 600 bucks on games. XD

Killjoy30002972d ago

I'm spending $60 on Dirt 2 and Forza 3 with ten times the ammount of content of both combined. It's called Gran Turismo 5!!

This is no attack. You have a great list and I'm poking fun with my GT5 comment so just game on man.

-MD-2972d ago

I'll be playing every one of those game right along with you.


ya, but killjoy..

by the time GT5 comes out, he would have played both those games and finished them over and over.

I won't comment on the content stuff, but more content does not always equal more fun. I played prologue and didn't think much of it at all. the car models looked impressive and that was about it.

for someone who has both systems, i will be playing shift and forza 3 and by the time gt5 is out i will have had my fill of racers anyway.
