Andriasang: The Valkyria Chronicles 3 news blog was updated today with a slight tease. The blog says that there will probably be a small bit of news shortly.
it says a small bit of news so probably dlc or something small but hoping for a ps3/vita vc game.
Port it over to the vita with updated graphics and new features and MAYBE I'll finally forgive you for never releasing another entry on the Ps3 sega.......maybe
Why 2 and 3 are not on PS3 is mind-blowing. The original VC remains one of the PS3's best RPGs and best games in general. I only played it for 4 hours, but I need to get it back. Game blew me away. And I don't typically go for strategy RPGs.
same with me, I only put a few hours in but I really want to finish it up soon
The profit margin is higher for a PSP game. Makes a little less money per unit at the shops, but in Japan PSP software sells more than PS3 software and a PSP game costs a lot less to make. The yen being worth a heck of a heck of a heck of a lot more than the dollar, Japan's side is where the interest of an international company like Sega will lie. Sucks for guys like you and me that would rather have it on PS3 though =/ I miss my huge battlefields :(
True about the PSP. However, VC came out first on PS3 and everyone was expecting to have the sequel on the PS3. Fans were pissed off about it and sales were less than stellar than it did on the PS3. The worst thing about it, is they still persisted on making the 3rd game on the PSP, and the sales of those 2 did not even came close to the sales of the VC in PS3. So, I hope Sega take their heads out of their asses this time and do the right thing. Remake 2 and 3 and put it on PS3 and PSV with save transfer.
Hey I'm right there with you on those feelings brother. Just the thing is, Valkyria 2 made more money overall than VC1 did, which is why they kept going handheld with part 3. I hope for the next one -- whenever it is -- to return to a console but I fear the power of the mighty Japanese handheld market.
The funny thing about Valkyria Chronicles is that the original one on the PS3 sold more in NA than in Japan. So everyone was kind of shock when the sequels came out on the PSP which is popular in Japan and not in NA. I can't argue with you guys which version made more profit since the only sales chart we can have is vgchartz and that's not 100% reliable. All I'm hoping now is to see VC3 localized. I don't care if its for the PSP or a remastered version for the PSV. I just want the game to come over.
Put it on the PS3 or I'll cry... or something more effective...
HD Remake like the PSP Monster Hunter perhaps? That's one way to get it back on the PS3.
It's also one way to get a pile of my money.
I want a full remake of the 2nd and 3rd one on the PS3, none of that HD port shit either, a full remake is what I want. I just beat the first game and I loved it, I bought it a long time ago but never played it cause the whole strategy thing seemed boring to me but after playing and the amazing storyline I wish I had played it sooner.
It'll probably be a Vita sequel, since they've abandoned the PS3 for handhelds. It's a slap in the face for developers to release sequels on a handheld when the first game(s) are on a console. I'm also ticked off about Uncharted, God of War (even though the collection is coming to PS3), Killzone, and Resistance sequels for PSP and Vita. I don't really play handheld systems. Yes I have a DS and I like Professor Layton, but you can't find that game on consoles, it's a portable exclusive. It's as though Sony wants more of your money so they spread out their sequels across multiple systems knowing the die hard fanboys want to play every possible game in the series. It's not only Sony, but Nintendo. There are multiple Zelda and Mario games on DS so the diehard fans will have to spend money on DS and now 3DS in order to play every game in the series.
The ones you mentioned are not sequels, they are more like side stories. Uncharted: Golden Abyss is a prequel, God of War on PSP are side stories, so are Killzone and Resistance.
Side stories, true but they are part of the canon.
Another thing is, if several of those particular games weren't on a handheld they probably wouldn't exist at all. It's not like the console market loses out much on those side stories.
