Former Xbox 360 exclusive Star Ocean: The Last Hope may be further along in terms of development for the PS3 than we thought as the game is meant to be playable at TGS.
The title should be "Star Ocean 4 PS3, the superior version, playable at TGS". :)
The title should be "Star Ocean 4 PS3, is out of beta and playable at TGS
We have Star Ocean 4 superior version, xbots...you dont. We have Uncharted 2 btw. You dont, haha. Haha I know what you are wondering: "please, can we betatest Uncharted 2 for you" The answer is no, xbots. No betatesting needed for TRIPLE A PS3 exclusives.
They should rename it from "Star ocean: last hope" to "Star ocean : we lol'd @ microsoft"
Title should be Starocean 4 the complete HD edition PS3 playable at TGS.
LMAO!!1! i like it when they remake old game and make them HD - like God of War collection and this. LMAO!!1!
O_o Never expected it THAT quick..
Indeed, very quick! I just hope they announce a couple more extras for the PS3 version to make it more enticing. On the other hand I wonder if any interviewer will be willing to ask about The Last remnant PS3. Surely Square can't leave it as vaporware now. And I know many ppl say that they shouldn't bother considering that its a terrible game. But they could easily make the PS3 version an enhanced version of the PC version which itself was much enhanced over the 360 version. I think there is potential here considering at one stage TLR PS3 was higher on the famitsu reader wanted list then SO4 xbox360. Anyways, good to see SO4 on the PS3. :)
This game was more then likely in development only 6-12 months after the Xbox360 version started--Hell If not the SAME damn time. The exclusively of this game was nothing more than a test (along with Infinite Undiscovery and The last Discovery) to test the Xbox360 market and the western market. Square Enix has extremely poor and dumb leadership. But they're not completely retarded. This game had to have a Ps3 release eventually for the sake of profits.
Well how bout that, They probably been working on the PS3 version ever since they released the Xbox360, viewing all the flaws, glitches and the the reception of the game on Xbox360 essentially making it a beta. Glad SquareEnix is slowly regaining its confidence in the PS3, Hopefully, they'll release The Last Remnant and Star Ocean IV:The Last Hope International before Final Fantasy XIII releases.
"Star Ocean 4 PS3 Playable at TGS" its like "IN YOURE FACE MICROSOFT" lol
Star Ocean 4 for PS3, playable at TGS.... on one disk! Oh, wait, maybe that was Lost Odyssey? Never mind then!
Believe me man I'm a huge JRPG fan but the after getting my new PC an trying out the Last Remnant. That is one game I don't think you want to play, I was bored to death. Not to mention if it wasn't for forced Vsync the screen tearing would have been unbearable.
I thought this was never coming to the ps3
Basically, when the game was announced, it was announced exclusive for PS3, but after a while Square switched it to 360 exclusive (for a check from MS). They used that money to fund the game's development, but always intended to release the game on PS3.
Do you have a link or any proof for that matter about MS maying square? I would be interested to read that. /on topic Its a decent JRPG, if you missed out on it when it came out for the 360 and are a JRPG fan, this is a great game for you.
@montrealien I guess he doent, but I think none of us can prove it didnt happen. Besides, SE is a business I dont think they dropped the PS3 sales (much bigger in Japan than xbox's) just because they felt like doing it.
I think Tri-ace has something to do with the decision as well though. They'd just finished IU which is funded and owned by MS(they were originally going to publish it too) and SO4 is based off the IU engine and one of the guys from Tri-ace said something about making it a 360 game because they already had the engine working. He also said that it might go on the PS3 but they didn't have any plans in the same interview. Seems someone made plans.:)
@montrealien - No, I'm guessing from that Japanese developer's blog where the guys said the same thing. So I'd expect that that is what happened, or something to that effect. Edit: Although now that I think about it, I think that guy was talking about TOV. Star Ocean 4 is probably the best JRPG that Square Enix has published this generation for next gen console, but it still is miles behind stuff like Lost Odyssey imo. Btw i didn't disagree with you.
However, According to the developer of ToV, they made it a time Xbox360 so that Microsoft would pay for some of the Development costs, then re-release it for Playstation and have almost pure profit.
Tales of Vesperia developers were paid. They said it in an interview. Although we don't have confirmation from Tri-Ace whether they were also paid or not, its very likely they were. Otherwise they wouldn't knowingly release a JRPG on the system with barely any JRPG fans.
Can't wait to hear the news. :)
I agree, good news on any platform is good news for the industry.
you may never know what happens kid we all just have to wait and see the thing is no matter what happens if sony showed something MS well have something to counter it and if MS showed something sony well have something to counter it
I can't wait till TGS. I'm pretty excited to see the bombshells.
I thought that was YOUR game BOTZ? Goes to show you that Karma is a BIATCH. :)
I wonder if any Japanese 360 gamers are angry enough about this to break their copy of the game, like the guy did with tov. Lol that was hilarious.
SO4 which was a 360 exclusive now PS3 title that looks better with more content, and Bayonetta, a multiplatform that's likely to have issues on the PS3. Really wish devs would get their act together. Simply delay games if they have to.
How many games are Square going to have there!? They have FF Gaiden, Crystal Bearers, Birth By Sleep, FFXIII, SO4 PS3, DQVI, DQIII, Dissidia, possibly Cross Treasure. Too much awesome......

One word: Nice.
Wow, they must've had this hiding under someone's desk at Square's office. I'm surprised it's playable already.
If it's already playable then that means 2 thing: 1) They've been making this game well over a year and kept silent on the PS3 version. 2) These guys went through absolutely no learning curves using the PS3's hardware and managed to make a playable version of the game in a 1 month. I pick No.2
I hope they put some work into it because if it's exactly like the sub HD piece of crap 360 version squareenix can kiss my ass.
I've played Star Ocean TTEOT on the PS2 and I've played the last hope on the 360. I'll take Star Ocean T(ill the End of Time) over this piece of crap any day. Hopefully they add something to the PS3 version to make it worth Ps3 fans time,none the less we're getting more RPGs the good and the bad. Square Enix sucks bring back Squaresoft!!
Only on Xbox 360
With the additions being made, this might be worth checking out.
no...really?!! I didn't know that...duh...
Look at SE crawling back to their masters. Sony should just ban them from PlayStation and we'll see who get's really screwed(tip: it wouldn't be Sony).
