Star Ocean 4 PS3 Playable at TGS

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

El Botto3170d ago

We have Star Ocean 4 superior version, dont.
We have Uncharted 2 btw. You dont, 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"

Bumpmapping3170d ago

Title should be Starocean 4 the complete HD edition PS3 playable at TGS.

DonCorneo3170d ago


i like it when they remake old game and make them HD - like God of War collection and this.

O_o Never expected it THAT quick..

sinncross3170d ago

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.

Dragun6193170d ago

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 for PS3, playable at TGS.... on one disk!

Oh, wait, maybe that was Lost Odyssey? Never mind then!

Enate3170d ago (Edited 3170d ago )

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

gaffyh3170d ago

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.

Montrealien3170d ago

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.

raztad3170d ago


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.

SpoonyRedMage3170d ago

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.:)

gaffyh3170d ago (Edited 3170d ago )

@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.

iamtehpwn3170d ago

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.

rockleex3170d ago

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.
