The guys over at Square Enix have just sent RPGSite some screens to go along with the Western release announcement for Star Ocean: The Last Hope International for the PS3. There's only three of 'em, but they are pretty!
Much much beautiful on the PS3. Beta tested confirmed. lol http://www.rpgsite.net/imag...
Superior version, better graphics, more enjoyable, HD textures, ONE DISK!
Payback's a b!tch right stupid animals?
Cant wait for this!!!
"Since when is getting a game 1 year after it's release cool?????" Since Xbox 360 was used to test, and fund vastly superior PS3 games.
I prefer Sony over Microsoft, but I've not once ever said, "I don't want the game BECAUSE it's on the 360". I didn't get it because I wanted to see if there was a PS3 release in the future. Now I've waited and now I can get it. The PS3 controller is more comfortable for me, and I'll have the with WITH Japanese dialogue (thank YOU S-E!) and English subtitles.
Best. Reply. Ever.
Your comprehension skills seem to be lacking refinement. The part where we get extra content is what is "cool", the part where we get games that were claimed to be exclusive to another console is "cool", NOT the part where we get games at a much later date. Think of it this way, would you buy a Game of the year edition of a game a year after the original first released if said GOTY edition had tons of extras that you wanted? You might, you might not but tons of other people do other wise GOTY editions wouldn't be released and the GOW1&2 remastered disc wouldn't have any hype/interest.
Is it just me or do these look a little TOO good? Especially that second pic, it looks like a CGI render rather than in-game.
@ kevoncox - Yeah and how long was the lifespan of the original Xbox again? The PS3 is completely different. That's an idiot comparison and something that should be left for the open zone. Your comparing 1 game that sold a LOT more on the PS2 than the Xbox even though the Xbox had the "superior" version. The difference this time kevoncox is that this game will outsell the 360 version in Japan by a long shot and almost if not beat it in Europe and USA. So your argument is stupid and pointless. Also I don't think adding custom music to a game has the same effect as the massive additions this games getting.
What's the point of showing screen shots of CG cut scenes? I doubt these screens look any different than the 360 version so unless these scenes weren't in the 360 version this is pointless. ^above The xbox version of that game didnt add custom music, the xbox itself did that. All games of xbox could play with custom music.
"As yourself whats the rip paying 9.99 for the xbox version of NG2 or paying 59.99 for it?" What's funny is how you seems to complain about fanboys , yet comes out as a far bigger one . Anyone with observation skills see and knows that NG2 sigma got enough new addition and new 3d engine to be called a different game . Hell had they chosen to do an original spin off story instead of the same campaign , you probably wouldnt speak about it . The co-op alone make it a brand new game and experience
I fear most of you miss understood. My point was that this isn't anything to bash the 360 on. it's a win for you all. However, most of your sony brethren have decided to use the term Beta when talking about these games. My original question still stands....Wasn't the Ps2 the Beta console of last gen? I expect the true fanboys to burst into tears.
Ps2 still release some games simultaneously with Xbox 360. What's your point? PS2 was the last console to faze out last gen. How does that make it a beta console for the next gen?
No. The PS2 is the best selling console of all time and had all developers full support. Microsoft had to dish out money to get developers to put their games on the original xbox. The big difference this generation is that the developers that put their games on the 360 as exclusives have crawled their way back to Sony. Instead of Sony begging for games they demand game improvements and additional content with the money that game developers have once again got from Microsoft's bribing. In case you need more proof games such as GTA3 that were released on to the original xbox were direct ports with no additional content or any improvements what-so-ever, (Where is the Beta at?) games such as SO4 and Tales of Verperia for the PS3 have additional content, but also respond to feedback and complaints to improve their games, (That sounds just like Beta testing to me) Did you mean true "xbox" fanboys (i.e. you) when you made the bursting into tears comment?
I've already had the game for Xbox360 so theirs no point of getting it for my ps3 and i can't see much of a difference i was hoping for a massive upgrade very disappointed not happy at all.
I got these from your comment history: "This will be bad for ps3 it will end up 4th in the console war." "Poor droids no games to play so sad." "Too late Sony ever heard of NATAL thats what all the press and gaming professions are talking about." With comments like these I'm 100% sure you have no PS3. You're just being an idiot.
Thank you for beta testing bot... Get over it.
If you already have it for your 360, and theres no point in getting it for your ps3, then whats the point in being disappointed thats its not a massive upgrade?
"MetalGearRising - 1 hour ago PM Track Ignore 2 - I've already had the game for Xbox360 so theirs no point of getting it for my ps3 and i can't see much of a difference i was hoping for a massive upgrade very disappointed not happy at all. " Let's translate this: "I'm butthurted because I bought an incomplete, full of bugs, disk [email protected], unfinished, low rendered version"
http://www.gamespot.com/xbo... I'd say there is a pretty big difference between versions. Though the one I am posting could be a real time cutscene, where as the ones in the article could be in engine, but in video format, which could allow for more AA or whatever.
I found a screenshot of the 360 version which seems to have similar cutscene quality(Probably a video/scripted cutscene). http://www.gamespot.com/xbo... The PS3 version still looks better. The edges seem to have better AA or something.
it looked last-gen on the 354.2 but now it's stunning on the ps3. it's like comparing a remastered version to the original, similar to the god of war collection
http://i32.tinypic.com/20ua... nuff said!
"Japan love PS3" major lol
I lol'd hard at the box features.. "Japan loves PS3" " Cell Processing" " Beta tested" "Enjoyable" " No RROD"
Epic box is epic.
i dont think its strategy based.
It's an Action JRPG if it's anything like Till The End of Time heres what you can expect You have control of one party member at a time the other two are controlled by AI that fight to your specifications; beatem-up, support, etc. I think the difference in combat in this one is theres a new counter system that can do a lot of damage to your opponents.
No. VC is a good strategy/action rpg, Star Ocean 4 is a mediocre action rpg with a dumb cast
No nothing like VC. It is action RPG.
I might pass. They only SO I've really liked was 2nd Story. I've never really liked how SO is futuristic yet usually finds a way to strand the protagonist on a backwater planet for 80% of the game. What's the point? Is SO4 any different? Edit: HOW DID MY POST END UP HERE?
Finally we'll see the game in true HD... Thank you for funding the PS3 version's development M$.
I still can't believe the 360 version couldn't render in HD
Is this really in true hd? the main reason I never got the 360 version was cuz the sub hd hurt my eyes.
Where are the 360 comparison shots? Lets rub some salt into this wound...
They should have release it when the game was really finished. Just go Multiplatform from the start. Their just making fans angry. I don't really care since I have a ps3 and a wii, so this is perfect news for me, but looking at what their doing to their xbox fans is really annoying. It was suppose to be a PS3 exclusive from the start, so consider it an advantage to have it before as a timed exclusive. That's why I won't buy a 360 for JRPGs, they all come out after on ps3, WITH extra stuff!
A friend of mine bashed me about Last Hope never coming to the PS3 and I just replied well I don't really see how your going to enjoy the full experience with Till The End of Time being on PS2 and the first 2 remakes on the PSP. So either way if he want's to get the full space opera experience he would have to buy a Sony console.
Beta testing only on the PLZFIXMEH SO4 probably still gonna be crap, but us getting this game from the 360 makes up for that
This is from IGN- Up to four characters can take part in battles simultaneously and party members can be switched mid-battle SO3 had 3 characters but this has 4 with switching.
Do you mean like switching as selecting a character to take control as or switching between characters that aren't in use sort of like FF 12?
Thank you and be safe from the RROD. :)
Finally i have waited so long for this game.... I almost bought a 360 for this 1 game glad i didnt. I love JRPG's
OH YES BABY!! Suck it up BOTS, your console HAS NO GAMES. NO EXCLUSIVES! ONLY PAIN AND SUFFERING! HAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Your getting a little Satanic on me I think I can see glowing red eyes from your avatar :D
LMAO!!1! at least you have something, right bots?
So, will a pixel counter say if it's an upscaled 576p or a native 720p?
You can bet.
Anti Aliasing pssh... Rent maybe.... /Sarcasm Looks cool. Would like to give it a spin. I liked 3
I don't plan on geting this game, only JRPG I'm waiting for is FF13, if it's good.
its so funny how you guyz called it "teh squezzinx flop ocean" and now it seem everybody ecited about it, the irony... so new character or 2 will make the game better? or even the Japanese VC?
militant07 Have you ever heard of the saying " A little taste of your own medicine" This is exactly what you fanboys are getting I bet if you go into any PS3 loses another exclusive article you can dam well be sure the same fanboys (including yourself) are in every thread gloating about how they get another PS3 game and "How much the devs like M$ better" or "they want SALES so of course there going to put it on the 360 PS3 fans only buy Blu-Ray movies" Now it's your turn to feel the Burn who cares when they get it the fact is on most of the "lost 360 exclusives" the PS3 is getting have improved graphics, new characters added, and stuff left out of the 360 versions because of "Lack of Space" aka DVD9.
I don't care about it... Getting ToV though.
yeah it does makes the game better IF IT FIXES the flaws the beta edition had . let's see : - no disc swaps - japanese voices ( so now you can actullay try to enjoy it like another anime ) and by that i mean like the previous SO games .. - new characters - improved targetting - improved space map and there is already talks of the resolution NOT being suub -hd this time ..i recall that SO4 360 edition was the less hd 3D game ever ... 496p .. ROFL .. Now that many flaws are corrected ... we can actually expect the game to please rpg fans .. ( the ones that are on Ps3 ..and believe me they are waiting .. )
i'm not playing any sub-HD games :/
if it was terrible then, it sucks more now after 6 months. Anyway, is good to see PS3 owners getting more games, for those that wanted SO 4, now can have it
The PS3 fanboys who said this game was terrible are probably bragging somewhere on N4G about this game, vesperia, or ninja gaiden, claiming how awesome it is to pay full price for a 1 or 2 years old game for some extra content, while it sucks to pay full price for a spin off game with a brand new campaign... talk about consistency. Anyway, still a good news for fans of SO who don't have a 360.
and unless the vo's and graphics get a major overhaul ... im out on this one... just too many games for my ps3 next spring.... heck ffxiii comes out in march.... which is way better than SO4.... but not better than versus sadly
Sooooo... All of a sudden its the jrpg ps3fangirls have been waiting for...right, the way i see it is like the developer said, "f**** it lets port it to the PS3, since ps3 owners will purchase any game thats 6 to a year old and pay full price". then one of there guys said "do you thing they will actually buy it?" then wada said "sure they will, just add some extra sh*t in there and make it sound exciting and !BOOM!Magic" LOL
Square-Enix Developer view: SE Guy 1: We are going to release SO4 multiplatform right? SE Guy 2: Changed of plan, Microsoft paid us $x,xxx,xxx to release it first in the XBOX 360. SE Guy 1: But what will happen to all Playstation Star Ocean fans? SE GUY 2: Don't you worry after we release the game in the XBOX360, we will announce the game 6 months early in the PS3 instead of typical 1 year or more. In that way, we can keep our loyal fans and earn more money with the help of MS contribution. after 4 months ... SE Guy 2: Damn! Sony gave us a notice that we cannot release the SO4 without adding massive contents and fixing all the bugs. SE Guy 1: All our hard work will be lost? what are we going to do? SE Guy 2: Don't you worry, we will used some of those money that MS gave to us to hire more programmers & testers. In that way we make sure that PS3 owners will get the best version and bring back their trust. SE Guy 1: How about the XBOX 360 owners? SE Guy 2: We will load all this content in the XBL for additional fee or free as long they upgrade to GOLD. And besides XBOX owners contributed heavily for those money that MS gave to us, so we cannot put them aside.
PS3 owners view: PS Newbie: Hey SE announced that SO4 will be a EXCLUSIVE game for the XBOX 360! There goes one of our JRPG :( PS Veteran: Don't be sad, there still a lot of JRPG coming next year. PS Newbie: But...but...I'm a JRPG gamer and not a shooter fan, that's why i bought a PS3 in the first place because i know that we will definetly have all those JRPG PS2 games eventually. But after this announcement, i'm totally lost! PS Veteran: Have faith with SONY! I'm sure they are giving their best to secure all the 3rd party games that we grew up and love. But for now, just focus your self and enjoy all those 1st and 2nd party games that SONY offers while we wait for more announcement in E3. And i'll give you a secret, didn't you noticed that most XBOX 360 EXCLUSIVE games are being announced to the PS3 after 6 months? PS Newbie: Really? PS Veteran: Didn't you notice that its a trend now in the XBOX 360 era. This thing didn't happened in the PS1 and PS2 era. And believe me SONY won't dish out all those Japanese gamers in the cold as we know that Japan is a JRPG nation. SE will lose million of dollars if they only support one console. PS Newbie: So why is this happening? PS Veteran: Money talks my friend ... bling bling! After 6 months .... PS Veteran: I told you SE will eventually release SO4 to PS3. PS Newbie: Thank you XBOX fanboys for beta testing those EXCLUSIVE ... aka TIME EXCLUSIVE games. And thank for all the financial support, without it i won't have the best JRPG version for my PS3. From the bottom of my heart .... I THANK YOU! PS Veteran: You make me laugh! LOL
Grow the hell up. I never bashed this game. I actually wanted a 360 for this game along with Tales of Vesperia and NGII. Now they're coming to the PS3, I have no reasons for it. Where do you get by grouping PS3 fans together? That's why I can't stand people like you.
The cutscenes like the one's shown in those 3 ps3 photos are in hd. The gameplay is/was in sub hd. I thought the game still looked great.
feel like an ass rape isn't it xbot?
What upgrades can we expect?
Thank you Square Enix! I'm still mad, though.. >.< But, this game will compensate for that. =] EDIT: lol, I'm happy and mad at SE. =T
