Exclusive PS3 game announced, Possibly .hack

CyberConnect2, the company behind the Naruto games and the .hack franchise on the PlayStation 2 have just announced that they are developing a new title for the PlayStation 3. The information comes from the latest issue of Famitsu, but unfortunately lacks any additional information about the project. Could we be getting a new .hack title? Eight games just isn't enough!

... (.hack, PS3)

.hack//G.U. Vol.3 is already out on the PS2(Soon to be released in NA), Vol.4 will probably see daylight on the PlayStation 3.

To some, it was a pretty good series for some Playstation 2 gamers out there.

I remember hearing the idea that there would be a MMO .hack game. Maybe this would be it?
Satanas  +   2985d ago
Never played any because I didn't have a PS2, but I've a friend who is religiously into the hack games, I'm sure he'll be happy about this.

Uh...Adam Sessler is quite happy with the PS3. Did you not see his video comments on Sony's Gamer Day? I don't think X-Play is really biased.
Torch  +   2985d ago
I know exactly where BubblesDAVERAGE is coming from; it's been nothing but PS3 bashing (G4 in general) since launch.

However, I noticed a dramatic change in tune as of late. As a matter of fact, even during tonight's prime-time airing of X-Play, Adam and Morgan were answering some video viewer mail, in which a viewer questioned whether it would be more feasible to pick up a new Apple iPhone or PS3.

To my surprise, they were quite openly optimistic about the PS3, reassuring viewers that, in the long run, the PS3 is a sure bet, while the iPhone is a new product and therefore questionable. Surprised, I even made a sarcastic remark to my wife, "what, no PS3 bashing this time???".

I also saw an interview-format Gamer's Day video (as mentioned a few days ago in another thread), in which Adam was praising the PS3's coming line up as if it were the best thing since sliced bread.

And THAT'S when I first saw Mr. Sessler sing the PS3 gospel. And it's been relatively (and surprisingly) optimistic since then.

I wonder if it's the same video you're referring to. Here's the link (click on the one entitled "Adam's Assessment".)

:) More goodies
Could this be a brand new Naruto for the PS3. I certainly hope so (fingers crossed).

By and during E307, PS3 game line is gonna get packed like atoms in solids.

like the .hack series especially what they did with the first series. I would like to see "the world" become a realization to do the game with in the game closer to the original series. I'd hope they would include all the episodes of the original series.

.hack is an appropriate name for this series...
...because it accurately descibes the capabilities of the developer. There's a very good reason Adam and Morgan featured this series in their "franchises we wish would die" segment. Only weird-ass Japanese gamers dig this crap....and crap is pretty much ALL they like. If it's goofy, quirky, has boobies and violence, and makes no sense whatsoever, it's bound to be a hit in Japan. :o

the .hack series is beast im excited for this. itd only be logical to me at least, for this to be a MMO, the series and anime is based on indeed an MMO
