Take a look at this chart, it’s an outline of Namco Bandai’s publishing plans for each platform, In fiscal year 2011 (that’s April 2010 to March 31, 2011), Namco Bandai plans to publish thirteen PlayStation 3 titles, but only eight Xbox 360 games.
Since it's Scamco, those are probably Wii ports.
And that would be a bad thing why? There are quite a few good Wii games. Tales of Graces for example looks incredible(just as good as Vesperia did) and it was on Wii only. I for one would love to see that game come to PS3 or 360.
Its Namco Bandai. Enough said. Im expecting at least 1 PSMOVE game and 1 PS3 exclusive big budget game from them.
It could be those long overdue games from Cellius
Highly doubtful. These c***s broke the exclusivity of three former Playstation franchises.
IF they're indeed making a few PS3 exclusives they'll only be a result of economics and almost definitely games that wouldn't see a western release on either platform anyway. the other thing it could be is Wii ports to Move that don't fit with Natal. Whatever, I doubt there's any reason for 360 only gamers to feel they might be missing out in any real way and I imagine any PS3 gamer thinking this means AA exclusives(esp for us in the west) will be sorely mistaken. Naturally, the Sony/Namco mash up could have a title to replace the one they dropped but, again, there was no guarantee it would've come to the west either-and are we really that excited about ANYTHING from Cellius anyway? I just don't think there's much to talk about here.
I'd be so happy to see a Klonoa 3 for the ps3. I'd probably have a heart attack and die, come back from the dead and play it.
Most likely ONLY on Japan like ALWAYS. Eat sand Namco. <---I don't know where that comes from to be honest.
Why they didn't make an international version of Tales of Vesperia like Star Ocean, only god knows.
I still trust a hope that a North American version is coming. They know how popular the series is over here with RPGamers, so they know there's a potential sale-base. I just think they're keeping quiet on it for a long time like they did with Eternal Sonata, also of which was a 360 exclusive for over a year.
I know right. This is the game I really want localized, or even just put subtitles I don't care. I want to play this game.
Can only hope it's an international release of Vesperia PS3, and maybe Gundam Senki. I'm still quite bent on the fact that we didn't get those here.
i guess exclusive ps3 titles in japan...
I highly doubt it if half of those titles make it too america.
Only eight Xbox 360 games. What's so bad about 8 to me 8 sounds great. Looking forward to these 8 exclusive games what ever they maybe.
That doesn't at all mean they'll be exclusive, just means that they are on that console, since theres more PS3 games being made by Namco, it could mean that they are exclusive. I once read about exclusive action game and RPG game coming to the PS3 i believe...
Might be PSP/PS3 classic games.
Can we get a SINGLE GOOD Gundam game please... I'll give you a kitty. :D
As during the PS2 era, Japanese publishers focused on the Japanese market, for obvious reasons. The PS3 will be lucky enough to see some of those games make it to NA and Europe, just as the PS2 was, in its day. 8 of those titles must already have established themselves as popular Western franchises, or they wouldn't be coming to the 360 at all.
ace combat for ps3 because AC is the best aircraft game franchise ever it has a great story and amazing arcade-ish gameplay and not to mention the games soundtracks . here listen to some epicness ps; do yourself a favor and listen to this you won't regret it http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... and there is more where those came from . AC and suikoden are the top on my list to come to this gen with a bang . oh and namco should hurry and get an english TOV on the ps3 cuz i need my RPG fix fast
For me AC is like the Gran Turismo of aircraft games. I was a bit disappointed AC 6 was an x-box exclusive (almost bought one for AC 6). Anyhow, AC is at the top of my list as well. My fingers are crossed. If it doesn't happen, I have 4,5 and the belkan war when I need my AC fix.
Full on son! I hope it is in fact the Ace Combat. Damn the Distant Thunder and Squadron leader were hot!!!
tell me about it the ACs are one of the best look at the stories even with an arcade gameplay and very litile cutscenes they immerss you in it and AC0 misson 18 prove it . oh and if you paid attention the script is amezing i have replayed AC0 maybe 20-35 times at least and am not kiding its that good . heres hoping for a decent next gen AC game . at ticklechamp actually i almost bought a 360 for AC6 and lost odyssey but had to pass so i'm with you there .
Namco have yet to deliver on the three exclusives they announced with the PS3, and didn't even bother bring over Vesperia or the other - supposedly good - Gundam game to the West. Nevermind screwing up Tekken 6 after major delays and turning it multi. Sorry Namco, time for you bastards to actually do some work and show some effort before I get excited about anything you have to say...
"Cellius, located in Shibuya, Tokyo, is a computer game developer founded in 2007 as a venture between Sony and Namco Bandai" I was looking forward to the games that they said they were making. Maybe Sony and Namco finally have something to show?
Namco has already lost huge chunk of fans in Japanese market as well as in western market, if you ask me. Both Playstation3 and Xbox360 owners in Japan would say they can live without Namco games.
As long as there are tekken,soul calibur,ace combat and tales games,namco will always be an important company to me.I mean imagine if the next sequels for these games went exclusive to one console,you think fans will act as if it's nothing important? it will be huge news and most of you know this ;)
a. One could be Tales of Vesperia for the west. b. The Gundam game that was previously released in Japan that could also see a western release. c. Another would be the new Gundam game that was previously announced for the arcades, that would probably be ported to the PS3 somewhere in 2011. d. Another Century's Episode: R e. A Move-enabled game.
Maybe the next tales game is exclusive for ps3? Or maybe tales of vesperia is going to be released for the ps3 outside of japan? :O
when something is said to be exclusive,it usually means it'll be on the other system before the game is done with development or after timed release..so nothing but 1st party is exclusive anymore,no matter what is said.
You said the keyword, usually. There are exceptions..MGS4, Mass Effect series, maybe SCC from Ubi..that remains to be seen though oh and Alan Wake
Ace Combat or GTFO
namco picked up demon's souls for the EU maybe they are planning on picking up a few more titles for publishing in only selected territories.
has been namco's fall from grace, when tekken 6 turned out to be crap i lost all hope from them!
Things change all the while and i'm pretty sure down the line games will get a multiplatform announcement.
exclusivie to the ps3 tekken 6 was not a good game thought and it was ruined when they went multi they should have left tekken 6 exclusive to the ps3 tey went down hill with tekken 6 when it went multi
Tekken 6 is great and the best fighting game to date. It takes skill to play and not just button mash, learn and make your own combos to master the game. Tekken 6 in the arcades were running on PS3 anyway and easily the looking fighting game to date. It went multiplatform but graphics did not change from arcade version.
Looks like Namco Bandai is coming back around to the PlayStation side. I guess those Xbox 360 exclusives like Ace Combat didn't work out too well...
