5 RPGs That We Want on the PS3

There have been many great Role-Playing Games that have graced Sony’s hardware over the years, and sadly, some of these have hit like a storm and then disappeared. With some RPG momentum finally picking up on the PS3, now is a good time for some series to make their return to Sony’s platform.

"Valkyria Chronicles 2

This game is coming out for the PSP, but honestly it should be hitting the PS3 as well."

I don't understand the premise of transitioning a proper sequel from console to handheld. This is going to cut off many consumers who enjoyed the first but don't own a PSP or hardly do any handheld gaming.

If Sony wants to promote the PSP, by all means allow the development of a spin-off/transitional game, but the series proper, including the fully-fledged sequel should remain on the entertainment medium that the original was conceived.

The first game didn't sale that well and this type of game sells the best in japan where portables are popular and the psp has almost three times the install base of the ps3. Even if you want to talk about overall install base the psp is 55+ million and the ps3 is 35 million which is a 20 millon lead.

Look at metal gear solid peace walker (aka metal gear solid 5 according to kojima) in japan it sold more in its debut than metal gear solid 4 so plenty of people are willing to play sequels on a portable.

Didn't they already announce persona 5 for ps3?

The PSP PWNs in Japan which is where JRPGs live or die. Since everyone owns a PSP and spends half there life on mass transit or in itty bitty apartments a portable version makes insane amounts of sense. Just not to an American.

The PSP install base is bigger than the PS3 install base there, IIRC.

it's about exploiting a console ..franchises should be on a console where you can work new ideas on ...i don't mind VC2 of MGS PW as they add new ideas in the mix ... and besides a psp ( is cheap these days )

There might not be enough content in this VC2, to warrant a PS3 sequel just yet. Hopefully if they do a 3rd that will jump back to the PS3.

Did we just suddenly forget all about WRPGs?

- Mass Effect 1-3
- The Witcher 2
- Elder Scrolls VI

Not to say that some of those aren't desired... but only two of those would be in my top 5 right now. PS3 really is lacking in WRPGs, IMHO, compared to other RPGs.

What BS?

WRPG on the PS3 right now:
Fallout 3
Dragon Age
Dragon Age: Awakening

Upcoming WRPGs:

Alpha Protocol
Fallout: New Vegas

How is my want/concern for the overall lack of WRPGs BS considering how many more JRPGs I can list? Unless by BS you mean my opinion... which seems right now to be attached to JRPGs around here for the most part.

Anon73492362d ago

Western RPGs always suck on consoles anyways.

Mass effect 1/2? Way better on PC.

Dragon Age? It's Garbage on consoles.

The Witcher? PC game.

Elder Scrolls? Oblivion sucked in general(Open world is just the same few tiles repeated, Lvling system was broken, ect), it was only good if you modded it... on PC.

PS is known for it's JRPGs, not it's WRPGs, that's always been a PC thing.

Just upgrade your PC, or buy a new one. Remember it's much cheaper to make your own and not buy a pre-built one.

Christopher2361d ago (Edited 2361d ago )

I own a nice PC and I play RPGs on it.

I own dragon age and ME for the console. And, yeah, they're not as nice looking, but the storylines are just as good and I'd rather play from my couch with a controller than in my office chair with a keyboard and mouse. And, yeah, I know I can hook my PC up to my TV, try getting that past my wife, though.

As far as PC being better, at least graphically? That's true of all games, but I don't see people telling me to get a PC when it comes to other genres of games. So, don't think that makes for a very good reason to not want WRPGs on the console.

Don't see the issue with the want for more and better WRPGs on my console in addition to JRPGs.

The first game sold more than Lost Odyssey on the 360, and that game was perceived as having good sales.

Noctis Aftermath2362d ago

I've never played a persona game but i am interested in it, i hope P5 releases on the ps3 cause then i can try it out.

Also i really hope we see ALOT more RPGs(both W and J) revealed this year, they don't have to release this year, i just want to know that the games are actually being worked on, as a gamer who prefers RPGs i feel like i've been given the finger this gen concerning console RPGs.

To be honest, Suikoden 6 is the most desired for me. Dark Cloud is good, and Legend of Dragoon is legendary, but I think one of the most defining RPG series on a PS platform is Suikoden. What RPGamer doesn't love the series? Suikoden V was undoubtedly the longest in the series. Lord knows I spent about 130 hours completing it, and I DID get all 108 characters. But I've been waiting for the new iteration since V came out several years ago. Come on Konami, get the lead out!

Still, can't wait for it to arrive in the west.

DJexs2363d ago (Edited 2363d ago )

I would kill for a new Legend of the dragoon game. Heck I would be happy with a remake. I think I'm going to have to hunt down the original now lol.

ThatCanadianGuy2362d ago

Me too! Would also love a new Suikoden game too..

Keele2362d ago

Suikoden, yes. Legend of the Dragoon, no.

bakagaijin782362d ago

Can't wait for Persona 5! As long as its not on a portable system I'll be happy.

Lelouch V Brit2362d ago

Agree, We need Persona 5 For PS3.

Keele2362d ago (Edited 2362d ago )

Nvm, got that one wrong.

I thought that it was a platformer.
