Why PlayStation 3 Owners Should Want Star Ocean: The Last Hope

While Halo Wars clearly wasn't up to the task of battling Killzone 2 for exclusive superiority in the first part of 2009, there's another Xbox 360 exclusive that PlayStation 3 owners should want: Square-Enix's Star Ocean: The Last Hope.

No thanks,I don't want a mediocre game on Ps3.

infekt3529d ago

Couldn't agree more. Multiplat game tend to be mediocre.. At least looking from the PS3 outside.

TIKUP3529d ago

lol it does it look pretty mediocre but im gona give it a rent

i only get exclusives on my 360 when i have to
but get all multiplatfrom games for the ps3 ohh and exclusives lol

UltimateIdiot9113529d ago

Yes, it's coming, and there is no announcement on when though. So hopefully sometime this year for both US and UK. But the #1 game I'm looking forward to from Level is Professor Layton 2 and 3. =[ Come on Level 5, it's been out for over a year in Japan now. Bring it here.

UltimateIdiot9113529d ago

Meh, I'll wait and see. So far, SE has been overly disappointing especially on consoles. Handheld better but it's almost all remakes and ports. So, I'm not holding any breath for SO:4 either even if it comes on PS3.

MasFlowKiller3529d ago

it looks like and average JRPG to me, yes its like one hundred steps up from the last 2 projects from SE but there are better JRPGs on both consoles

MazzingerZ3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

I'd rather take one JRPG of the quality of Valkyria Chronicles every 6's not like I have lot of free time to play RPGs now at my mid 30's

so I'm happy playing White knight Chronicles and Demon's Soul during the coming year when it comes to RPGs...well, I didn't count FF VS XIII and FF I have enought RPG on my PS3 I guess

solidt123529d ago

After I beat Lost Od I will get this game but next weekend I will be all over Killzone 2.

La Chance3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

RPG gamer = 70/100

famitsu = 29/40

BTW do you remember maybe about a year ago , you and me got into a little "argument"...

It was about jrpgs and you were saying that ALL 360 jrpgs sucked and that 8/10 was average and how you wouldnt even touch 8/10 jrpgs because thats mediocre...and you only want AAAAAA jrpgs like FF13 and WKC

You were saying you couldnt care less about 360 jrpgs because you had WKC (WK Story back then) and the "mother of all jrpgs".....FF 13.

Now its funny to see youre satisfied with WKC which as good as LO , Eternal Sonata or Blue Dragon.And in fact its not even as good as 360 jrpgs looking at the first reviews that have rolled in.

Funny how things have changed...funny indeed....

@the hater below : can you post a link Where Square or Tri Ace even give the SLIGHTEST hint as to a PS3 port ?

My guess is you'll never be getting this on PS3 or if you're lucky 1 year later like Eternal Sonata.
EDIT : @THE HATER : lol , well we can carry on like that forever if you want.

But the fact is that right now its on the 360 and 360 gamers are 100% sure to be playing this game while PS3 gamers dont have a clue.

TheHater3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

"can you post a link Where Square or Tri Ace even give the SLIGHTEST hint as to a PS3 port ? "
Can you link a post where they stated that it isn't coming to the PS3, PC or Wii?

Edit: True we can carry on like this forever :)
But you are right, Xbox 360 are playing this game, while PS3 gamers are unsure if this game is coming on the PS3 or not.

Le Idiotce3529d ago

Rofl and to put the game on an even footing with the caliber of Killzone 2 is hilarious and outright delusional.

Star Ocean 4 doesnt even hold a candle against KZ2.

Meanwhile PS3 owners have the best RPG out there on the market right now. Its called Valkyria Chronicles.

Like it or not fanboys, PS3 has the best titles of all genres. And there is nothing you can do about it.

eagle213529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

Game Informer gave SO4 a 7. So...Yes, it's mediocre. Not horrible, but average. You can hang on famitsu's nuts, but they are wrong with rpg's this gen. Bad luck for 360 in 09' so far.

Eurogamer gave WK 8/10.

I'll admit as a fan of the SO series I am waiting for it on the PS3. S-E nor MS confirmed the game as a 360 exclusive, S-E only said that no PS3 version is planned. Yes, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Namco-Bandai said the exact same thing about Eternal Sonata on the PS3. It might be a while, but I'll wait for the PS3 version. In the interim I have Demon's Souls coming from Asia and Cross-Edge to keep me busy.

thats_just_prime3529d ago

eagle SO4 is waaaaaaaaaaay better then that trash you call WK

SO4 got a 34/40 from Famitsu
SO4 got a 8/10 from IGN
SO4 got a 4/5 from X Play
SO4 got a 8.5/10 from TeamXbox

thats almost every review that is out for the game right now.

Oh and Valkyria Chronicles isnt even a jrpg it a srpg

SaiyanFury your goin to die of old age waiting for that cause its not going to happen

SixTwoTwo3529d ago

I know many people would enjoy a PS3 version of the game but I have never been a fan of the SO series. I tryed SO3 but I just couldn't get into it. Give me Last Remnant instead.

@1.9 .. Good luck with that xD

Lifendz3529d ago

you remember who you had "arguements" about and over what over a year ago on N4G? That might be the most sad thing I've ever read on here.

Final_Rpg3529d ago

does anyone know the likelihood of a ps3 version of lost odyssey??? Rather this game than SO4.

Buttons3529d ago

"Can you link a post where they stated that it isn't coming to the PS3, PC or Wii? "

bakasora3529d ago

SO4 battle system alone is enough to justify.

Danja3529d ago

because it's a great game and a great Franchise...enuff said..

the story was never the strongest part of this game but the battle system was always top notch and I will be playing this game..already one buy...!!!

ali3123528d ago

JRPG's dont sell that well in the west and everyone knows this is a fact. With Killzone 2 and Resi 5 just round the corner it is not going to matter. Square have produced decidedly average titles of late and I cannot see that changing. They need to move with the times and create new games that are multiplatform as well as the 360 is not going to make them much money in Japan.

jadenkorri3528d ago

STAR OCEAN 4 LAST HOPE will be on ps3, i don't need to provide proof or anything, I just can't see squaresoft giving the big middle finger to all its Japanese fans, cause thats were Star Ocean is more popular than over here in North America... I would be shocked if square does not release it to the ps3...

TheHater3529d ago

Square Enix nor MS have stated that it was exclusive. If the game was exclusive to the Xbox 360 both Square Exix and MS would have stated it already. It doesn't even say Xbox 360 exclusive on the box. So expect this on the Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii or PC something later this year. My beat is on the PC and Playstation 3.

TheHater3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

It doesn't changes that fact that neither MS or Square Enix have stated this game is Xbox 360 exclusive. Find me an article in which both MS and Square Enix stated this game was an Xbox 360 exclusive and I will STFU and never post again.

slayorofgods3529d ago

SE can barely makes games for the XBOX 360, I doubt they even have talented enough programmers for a ps3 version. SE should just stick to hand held games because they just aren't the serious video game producers that they used to be back in the olden days.

NinjaRyu3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

hasn't this console round prove to you anything.Just because theirs no only on xbox tag doesn't mean it's coming to the PS3. #1 their have been games on the 360 that don't have a only on xbox tag & have not been on any other consoles besides the 360.#2 their have been games that have made the jump to the PS3 with the only on xbox tag!(see lost planet & Enchanted Arms!)#3 Even if a game is said to be exclusive to a console that doesn't mean it can't jump ship (See most PS3 titles that were said to be exclusive at the beginning of this console gen). This Doesn't mean Star Ocean:The Last Hope won't see the light of day on a PS3. However I feel it's kinda pointless to based the chances of a SO4 port on just the fact theirs no only on Xbox tag. Besides the lack of a tag could be just a misprint on the box art for all we know & don't say that kinda thing doesn't happen because if it didn't my friend would of gotten a only on xbox tag on has copy of race pro like my other live friend in the UK did!

gdguide3529d ago

It looks like a good game, but not much better than White Knight IMO. And I'm sick and tired of battles that happen on a flat slab of land the size of a football field. I mean you're walking on this narrow staircase that's 5 feet wide, you run into an enemy there, and the battle takes place on this huge field. This was okay 5-10 years ago, but no longer.

pippoppow3529d ago

At least if battles are zoomed in to take place on a battle field it should represent the origional field. So if your party was going down stairs and a battle scene starts, then the battle scene should show the battle on a stair case with advantages and disadvantages. While SO4 does look like a fairly good game I am looking forward to the PS3 exclusives WKC and Demons Souls eagerly. So if So4 doesn't come to the PS3 then no big deal.

jetlian3528d ago

its not like that! not enough memory. WKC doesn't have nearly as much on screen action as this. WKC is turn based this is real time. hit detection and clipping would be a problem as well
