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.
Couldn't agree more. Multiplat game tend to be mediocre.. At least looking from the PS3 outside.
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
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.
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.
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
I'd rather take one JRPG of the quality of Valkyria Chronicles every 6 months...it'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 XIII...so I have enought RPG on my PS3 I guess
Eurogamer 8/10 :)
After I beat Lost Od I will get this game but next weekend I will be all over Killzone 2.
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.
"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.
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.
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.
Enough of the fanboy news and fanboys on N4G. Gaming journalist have got out of hand and its spreading to the gamers. Be a real gamer and stop with the hate for rival console. Both consoles are here to stay so get over it. Make N4G a gaming site once again and MESSAGE ME to add you to the list to show that you support this message and spread this message. Go on.

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.
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
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
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.
does anyone know the likelihood of a ps3 version of lost odyssey??? Rather this game than SO4.
"Can you link a post where they stated that it isn't coming to the PS3, PC or Wii? " --- http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
SO4 battle system alone is enough to justify.
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 pre-ordered...day one buy...!!!
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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! http://www.ebgames.com/Cata... http://retromedia.ign.com/r...
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.
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.
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
personally, i don't give a flying shyt about star ocean.
You don't care about Star Ocean, and yet you are leaving a comment on a thread about Star Ocean, don't you have anything better to do with your time?
Why can't he express his opinion? It's his time, he does what he wants with it; in this case, he tells others he doesn't like a game. Move along.
I would like the game and I will wait and see what will happen over the next year. I am a patient man (you have to be to be an rpg fan)so I will wait.
510p? 3 discs? Tri-Ace? $59.99? No thanks.... I'll wait for White Knight Chronicles in 1080p, by Level-5, and on one disc.
can anyone tell me if WKC is actually coming to the UK?? if yes then when!!!!!!
youre not fooling anyone :) Youre jealous
Yep, he's jealous. Everyone knows in the States, when you think blockbuster hit, you think Star Ocean. I'll wait to see how the PS3 version pans out. SE and Tri-Ace haven't impressed this year.
Yeah it is,don't know when the release is though.
Why? 1. Cause it's a game. 2. jRPG. 3. Seems to be pretty good. 4. It's Star Ocean. 5. No one said it's an exclusive. Here. No need to read this article.
No thanks. Till the End of Time was bollocks.
The gameplay was amazing and so was the Story until like 3/4 of the way. What they did to the story really mess up the Star Ocean Universe up and it really hard of Star Ocean fans such as myself to play the series knowing what went on in Star Ocean 3. I played both Star Ocean: First Departure and Star Ocean: Second Encounter for the PSP and you can feel that the story hand so many holes in it. Even they developers couldn't make sense of the Story after Star Ocean 3 that they hand to do a prequel for Star Ocean 4. I might just pick this game up because it Star Ocean and try to look past the story and just play it for the gameplay.
I played SO3 first and I just got SO1 on the PSP and I found it far better than SO3. I have to say it was one of the worst games I played last gen.
So you're saying you played Star Ocean 3 and though OMFG this game sucks I will go buy Star Ocean? Stop spitting that crap out of your mouth you wouldn't of bought an older version of Star Ocean if you didn't like the one that brought you into the series. Star Ocean 3 had its floors I will be the first to admit but as a game it was bloody amazing and Japan knows that only to well. Star Ocean 3 like 2 and unlike 1 the most shallow of the series is made for a different kind of gamer then the COD4 group. You have to look at Star Ocean in a different light not everyone will like it. But to the ones that do its bloody one of the best games ever made. And Star Ocean is sort of like Star Ocean 2's gimped little bother with worse everything. Like Suikoden and Suikoden 2 I would advice playing Star Ocean 2 as its a far superior game. Its seen as the best in the series just because they made one game everyone didn't like doesn't mean 4 ain't going to be truly amazing. By your logic your saying 4 ain't good because I didn't like 3 but ain't all the PS3 fanboy's still spitting up blood over Final Fantasy 13? 11 and 12 sucked. So using your logic 13 must be horrible I don't work by that logic its moronic Star Ocean 3 has no impact on Star Ocean 4.
I bought the first and second games because I heard they were far superior to the third. I was not going to get them but I was convinced to as they were better than SO3 and they were right. I have previous stated to you that I would buy it if it were on the PS3. SO3 was crap and FF XII is my lowest FF game but it is far better than SO3. I have played all the Suikoden games and 4 was crap but I went on to play Suikoden 5. I didn't say SO4 will be crap but like after Suikoden 4 I was cautious before I bought it.
Never played any Star Ocean games, and Square doesn't exactly have the best track record this gen. I'll just keep waiting for Final Fantasy XIII... if I don't die from old age first.
It's simple, they should want it because it's good for the platform. Even if you don't like JRPGs, even if you don't like Star Ocean or Squeenix, you should want as many games as you can get on your favourite console, because the people that DO like the game will buy it and strengthen the console as a whole.
I prefer quality over quanity. Im assuming you only have a 360. Am I correct?
i would take 1 good game over the course of a year rather then 6 average game
Sorry but the only good JRPG the PS3 has is Disgea 3. Please for the love of god don't say Valkryia Chronicles because that is possibly the worse example of a JRPG game ever. Its a bloody strategy game with RPG elements. And Disgea 3 is clearly not quite as good as tales of vesperia. Or even Lost Oddesy for that matter the 360 is the clear winner when it comes to JRPG's Not the mention that fact Valkryia Chronicles was originally made with the 360 in mind. Before Sega changed it to a PS3 exclusive which sold terribly. So your logic 1 good game fails.
I've got both consoles. But apparently some of you seem to think that every single owner of the console must have the EXACT same taste in games or something. Heaven forbid someone is a fan of a series or just happens to like a game that many others do not.
i will wait to get it later on ps3
i would want it. but if it doesnt come to ps3 i cant get it couse im not buying a 360.
i think thats a silly statement. plenty of ps2 gamers were already familiar with the series. so its a no brainer that they would want it on their console. its like saying the next gears of war is coming out on the ps3 then saying why the 360 community should want gears on their console.. the why is obvious for fans of the series.
Personally I want White Knight on my PS3 I could careless if Star Ocean 4 arrives on PS3 or not.
you talk like if you WKS is best game out there or its scorred +90
militant07 A reviewers score is nothing but 1 persons opinion and that's it. I'm so sick of you dam Muppet's using review scores and sales to prove a certain game is better than anything else, Maybe if you little boys would stop your school yards antics and play games like gamers should and leave what only stockholders, company owners, Publishers and developers care about (SALES and reviews) out of the argument.
I personally want WKC a lot more it's not just cause of what console it's on, It has to do with the setup of the game, WKC is somewhat of a MMO hybrid, its a different game than Star Ocean. Considering I played the last Star ocean on PS2, thought it was ok, but not good enough to Finnish, I'm looking forward to WKC more - and I have a 1080p capable tv as well.
Ill kindly wait for FF13 and ff13 Versus thank you very much.
Star Ocean wasn't good on the PS2. Why would it be better on the 360? Square should just scrap this franchise....
Star Ocean is a good series if you have followed it. I am looking forward to other games more though. White Knight, FF13, FF13 verses, and Team ICO project(I would like to know something about this game) I see no reason for PS3 only people to worry about Star Ocean 4. They have games coming down the pipe that they will be able to play. I say worry about games for your systems who cares what other may get. It pays to have both, but I see no reason why you can't stick to one console.
this game is trash and runs at a laughable SD resolution
actually SD is 480I 480P*is still hi-def* this game is above that. get your facts straight. -nai-
"While Halo Wars clearly wasn't up to the task of battling Killzone 2 for exclusive superiority in the first part of 2009," Yeah...sort of stop reading there....why should I care about the rest of your article with such a statement. Your site will not be getting a hit on my account.
stop telling me what i want
Just keep them games coming that are supposed to bring KZ2 down. First it was FEAR2 whom the Bots were praising, then it was Halo Wars. When both those games flopped they have now moved on to Star Ocean, which ofc is another flop.
