3D Dot Game Heroes: Xbox 360 version not happening

Gaming Target writes:

"During [a 3D Dot Game Heroes] presentation, the company also dashed the hopes of Xbox 360 gamers everywhere when they confirmed the game would not be ported to Microsoft's console.

When asked, Atlus' Manager of Public Relations Aram Jabbari replied with a simple 'Nope.'" (3D Dot Game Heroes, PS3, Xbox 360)

This is going to be another sleeper, like Demon's Souls.

Thats nice. Eurogamer 70/100 is nothing new and Teletext ... what is Teletext?

Not interested in 3Dot Heroes but if I was I'm sure as heck those reviews wouldnt stop me from getting the game.
paradigmfellow  +   1804d ago
if only
they actually market the game and not just rely on the fans
mastiffchild  +   1804d ago
Christ, TELETEXT! It#s the ITV channel in the UK's TV text service. My dad worked there a while back(I even did some gig reviews for them)and the guy who runs the gaming section was a total Xbot even back then and they've got NO better since.

How something so crappy gets on Meta shows how hopeless the whole thing is, tbh, it's the last place you'd ever WANT to have to work if you can string more than three words together.

As for EGUK-where's the shock there?

Atlus is my true hero when it comes to bringing us some interesting JRPGs.

Edit: After looking at the hero creating editor from the link above, and the thought of saving the kingdom as a dog ... the game may very well be a sleeper hit.

it's one of those games you wish it was multiplaform but it's not. so much dream are crush.

only time can tell, but who are the developers?

Eurogamer actually gave Demon's Souls a 9 out of 10.

As someone who only owns an Xbox 360/Wii, this news really saddens me. I love the art style and the words "Zelda-inspired" automatically make every game better.

hey it can be solved
buy a PS3
KingJFS  +   1804d ago
Would if I could
I can afford $40 for a new game. I can't afford $340 for a new game.

buy one used or buy a 40 gig sony refurbished model for 230 plus 40 for the game that is 270 and there you go.

atlus saw how low preorders are for ff 13 x360 version and they said:*uck it.if ff13 can't sell on x360 why would they buy this game.

BX81  +   1804d ago
Am I the only 1 who wants to punch babies in the face when I see this game? This is just a zelda rip off imo! Another game that upsets me to see is Dantes Inferno. It's seem to much like GOW to me. I'm not a huge GOW fan but I know it's considered a classic for Sony. Classic games should not be ripped off. It's one thing to mimic in certain areas but 3D Dot looks like they made an effort to really copy Zelda.
jack_burt0n  +   1804d ago
The whole game is based around fan service and homage it never makes any claims to be anything but that. And it does it to alot of 2d classics, its not the same as DI ripping off GOW.

Its like saying scary movie is copying scream :)
BX81  +   1804d ago
Paying homage is not making a close replica then releasing it to make money.
mastiffchild  +   1804d ago
IF Zelda games were anything like this anymore you MAY have a point but as they aren't and the game references classic Castlevania among a lot of others you really are showing a little ignorance about the game.

IDK why the game gets so much hate from those who seem to have read the first, laziest games journalist descriptions written BEFORE we knew what the game was really about and taken it as gospel. Honestly, you can find out more about the game if you really want to and , fact is it IS part homage and part loving parody of many 2D games.
Bzone24  +   1803d ago
"Its like saying scary movie is copying scream :)"

That's a parody. Is this game a parody of Zelda?
BakedGoods  +   1803d ago
I'm amazed by some of the criticism towards this game. It's a Zelda rip-off? That's the point! That's why gamers like myself want to play it. When was the last time we've played anything similar to old-skool Zelda on the PS3? NEVER! That's the allure of this game. Criticizing 3D Dot Heroes for begin a Zelda rip-off is like calling out Geometry Wars for being a retro rip-off--that's the point!

Exactly, it worked for Darksiders when I thought it wouldn't. I guess I should give this a shot considering Zelda is one of my favorite games of all time.

Valve doesn't want to make games for PS3 = OUTRAGE Gabe is a fat ass and can't code on the PS3 cuz they suck.

Atlus doesn't want to make games for XBOX = Xbox can't handle the game and it's acceptable decision.

Good to know!
Blaster_Master  +   1804d ago
Actually, any publisher that makes a ps3 exclusive psn game gets 100% development cost. Maybe thats why?

"Atlus doesn't want to make games for XBOX = Xbox can't handle the game and it's acceptable decision. "

who said this...
TheBlackSmoke  +   1804d ago
1. Atlus is a publisher.

2. Atlus is a successful publisher because they know what sells.

3. 3D dot game heroes will not sell on 360.

Kind of different from just flat out refusing to make games on PS3 because they don't want to learn how to program for it.
Optical_Matrix  +   1804d ago
Well no because Valve refuse to make PS3 games because they can't be f*cked to work on Hardware that's slightly more complicated than the norm. Atlus is a small publisher that publishes niche JRPG's...if Tales of Vesperia, one of the biggest JRPG's of this gen can't sell that well on 360, what makes you think this game will? What's the point of spending money on a port when 2000 people are gonna buy it?
Godmars290  +   1804d ago
Except the game, as far as I know, isn't a PSN/DL title.

If anything, Atlus might have - politely - given MS the finger over the notion of having to deal with trading edited characters through XBL. Players having to subscribe and possibly paying for player made content.
UnwanteDreamz  +   1804d ago
1. Gabe is a fat ass.

2. If Atlus said this about the 360 you might have a point. "The PS3 is a total disaster on so many levels, I think It's really clear that Sony lost track of what customers and what developers wanted, Newell reportedly said in an interview with Game Informer." http://www.computerandvideo...

3. Once again playing the victim? Don't you guys get tired of that?

What butthurt gabe is saying there actually translates to:

"Our efforts at using technology that isn't 6 years old is a total disaster, it's clear we've lost track of the innovation and advancement this generation of gamers want and demand"
Dev8 ing  +   1804d ago
Actually Peeps it is 50% of the development costs. Sony will match the costs incurred if a game is kept exclusive.
paradigmfellow  +   1804d ago
the game is comming on a disk not on PSN. If it was digital only I would have not even thought about the game as I do not support digital only. Thats why with Agarest I imported the European Collectors edition instead.

@ Parapraxis, I never said I don't buy small digital games. Those are reasonable and I actually have them. However, if it is a full fledge game (more than 2 gigs i say) and especially was released on a disk in a different region. I will import the disk to show my support for physical media and boycott the digital one. Oh and believe me Akysys already knows how I fell about Agarest.

Parapraxis  +   1804d ago
paradigmfellow, you are really missing out on some great games.
Fat Princess, Super Stardust HD, Flower and the likes.

I was going to mention WipEout HD (+ Fury) but I think that has a disc-based release in the UK now so I suppose you could import it.
Godmars290  +   1804d ago
@9.9 & 9.10
Parapraxis: pretty sure none of the game you mention are 10GB in size nor have disc release on the 360 w/bonus material. That's what makes Agarest worthless on PSN.

Though paradigmfellow I understand the English translation got cleaned up.
LastDays  +   1804d ago
Atlus released a game exclusively on the 360 before.
Godmars290  +   1803d ago
"Atlus released a game exclusively on the 360 before."

Humm...not like a AAA title....Waiting for better version on xbox 360.
Noah  +   1804d ago
I can't wait to play this game.
cliffbo  +   1804d ago
now if it had been confirmed for the 360 the replies would have been:

'ha ha, another exclusive Sony lost'

but of course now it's not coming to the 360, the replies will be:

'who wanted it anyway?'
mcnablejr  +   1804d ago
it got a 70/100.

Way to cut your games sales down to just one console...
Oh well, there will always be exclusives. I'm really looking forward to this myself. I just enjoy using my 360 controller more than my PS3 one.
Dev8 ing  +   1804d ago
Not really cutting down sales on this one. It isn't a shooter. You can use your 360 controllers on the ps3 with an adapter.
paradigmfellow  +   1804d ago
the amount sold on 360 would have not been enough to recover the cost of development and shipping of the game. That's due to the demographics of the console.
PrettyGamerChick  +   1804d ago
nefertis  +   1804d ago
Japan know where there choice of consoles are Ps3 and the WII, xbots dont realize how important for small developers in japan to sell units so japan is important, now if the 360 was selling in japan atlus would consider it.

Good for PSN!
No worries. I wouldn't be picking up this game for the 360 even if it was available. It kinda sucks for 360 gamers that would've been interested. Oh well, XBLA is getting quite a few nice games coming in the next few months. Yay! I love games like Shadow Complexe that only cost $15. Toy Soldiers & Scrap Metal should be enough to fill my XBLA gaming needs for this spring.

Edit: Hummmm, i thought this game was a downloadable PSN game. My bad. Still doesn't change what i wrote besides it being $15.

It's not a PSN title, It's a full fledged disc-based game.
Read some of the previews, it's got a large overworld and plenty to do, along with lots of customization.
It'll be $39.99 (a steal IMO) and it ships in NA on May 11th.
k-Lan  +   1804d ago
Yeah. My bad. I noticed that it was a full title after posting my comment. Good for PS3 gamers!
