Square Enix's first retail PlayStation 3 game might be Star Ocean: The Last Hope. Nothing official, but Gamefly has a listing for said title.
I think japan would have been aware before Gamerfly. If it's true then thats good news for ps3 gamers. SO4 is a good rpg and maybe the ps3 version will have the original Voices in japanese which are better.
Yeah I agree... but I still hope it does. I want another rpg to play.
As much as I tried, I just couldn't get into SO4... The combat mechanics were awesome, but the story and characters were (imo) horrible. I think I will like Tales of Vesperia more, might start playing that today actually.
"Some company just keeps on stealing my exclusives".
*IF* it does could it be due to square being happy about FF7 selling like hotcakes(again) on the PSN?
I use to think that way about Gamefly listing games - honestly, what does Gamefly know? But every single time they've listed something in the past, it has come to fruition. We'll probably see it sooner or later.
wasn't this game crap?......if not then yay, if it is....then keep it. unless its getting the ninja gaiden sigma treatment.
The original Japanese voices will make this game MUC MUCH better then it was. Hopefully square includes this option for ff13 also. enough space there not to.
Maybe It might be revealed in this week's Famitsu Mag? If Star Ocean: The Last Hope does come to the PS3, I would buy it. As Long as they give some special features like with Tales of Vesperia and Options for Japanese Dubs for making PS3 owners wait.
No thanks. I want a good JRPG, not this. I'll take Lost Odyssey though. :)
We'll have to wait and see. I remember all the fuss when Left 4 Dead PS3 was available for pre-order on Amazon or Gamestop or one of those big retailers. Good news for PS3 gamers though if it does happen - I'm enjoying SO4 on 360 at the moment, very good JRPG. Infinite Undiscovery was Tri-Ace's previous JRPG though, and it never went to PS3. DOn't think the team has any experience with the PS3, so if it's ported it would probably be a different team handling the port.
Yeah.. it really was. I could only get through about 8 hours of it before giving up out of boredom. My friend took over, claiming he was starving for a good RPG.. he quit for the same reason after beating the first disc. Now if you want a good current-gen JRPG, just wait for Tales of Vesperia if you don't own a 360. That was a great game.. could barely put the damn controller down.
It's to late I've lost interest in this game, I would however like to see SE get its head back into the game and do something right this generation. FF13 better not let me down.
I think just about everyone knows this game will make it to the PS3 If you need an RPG fix get it. This whole "it's to late" or "not going to get it" is the whole problem with gaming on your side of the fence.
I like this series for the: Gameplay Ability/spell/skill upgrades weapon and armor creating extra hard optional dungeons extra hard optional bosses multiple paths within the storyline causing different party of usable characters. visual style strange characters HUGE mini-games (coliseum?) Does the game still have all that stuff or did it REALLY fall short? I've NEVER cared for the Star Ocean storylines. In part 3 you could actually unlock a versus fighting mode so you and a friend could fight each other.
I think this game is never comin out on PS3, but I could be wrong, just look at Bioshock and NinjaGaiden2Sigma. U know FFXIII will come out on PS3 end of this year, and i think StarOcean still wont be out on PS3 when FFXIII is out in Japan end of this year [that is ironic].
This game is probably the best game Square Enix has released on Xbox 360. Everything else is worse than this.
so much better sh!t coming out
This is definitely true. The beta box 360 never fails.
Didn't PS3 fanboys condemn this game because it got 7 and 8s? Watch it be true and they all freakout in excitement over an average rpg. The PS3 is pretty starved for RPGs though so I can't really blame them.
We'll get excited only because it will have the features that you guys complained about thus giving it those 9s that you'll despise. Beta Box 360 FTW!
Later after 6 months after we are done with it, we give the left overs to the droids and they love it.
More like you get the appetizers and we get the full course meal.
Oh. I'm sorry. You actually mistook my post for excitement, or thought I expressed a general interest in this or any other mediocre 360 game. I can assure you that is not that case. Again, I'm sorry for the confusion. :)
@murder well u know, one of why SO4 had some low scores was because the game game was *stopping* on high frame real time battles, but, well dont balme PS3 fans, a lot of ppl just want this game for have the collection (me included) i have 1-2-3 all left is 4, but its no worthy enough to buy an xbox 360, hope this is true ;)
If this is true I wonder if it will go the way of Tales of Vesperia with extra content here and there. If so I'll hold out on both of these I guess and continue on with Lost Odyssey until both are released over here.
no Lost Odeyssey is a Real x360 exclusive.
Ah, I meant if Tales and Last Hope, just meant that I would continue playing Lost Odyssey until both (Tales and Last hope) are released for PS3 (if Last hope does indeed come to the PS3).
Exactly. Especially since there is the possibility (even though it is slight) that the Japanese VA will be included with a potential SO4 PS3 port. That way, you don't have to listen to that godawful English dub. Anyone who has even watched a trailer of this game, know of which character I speak.
I have never been a fan of the Star Ocean series but since the PS3 JRPG selection is small, I might buy this. IF they give us the option of using japanese dubs.
I want it that's all... so, bring it!
i knew this was gonna happen sooner or later there is no dought in my mind that microsoft paid for this game to be a timed exclusive
And there's no doubt in my mind that Sony paid for this game to come to the PS3. See what I did there? WaitBeyond
Indeed they wanted some JRPG love and my god square enix gave it to them. Definitely too generous of square enix not to have an incentive, especially with the series history on Sony brands.
I think ou're wrong there fella. IIRC SO4 was only 360 exclusive as development started before they got the dev packs for PS3(odd I know but that's what they said so I guess Tri or SE must have stalled the game at one point). So i doubt,also, with it being a pretty small jrpg in terms of sales compared to the big boys that MS would have payed for anything with it. Secondly, I don't know if SO4 would even turn much of a profit for SE/Tri Ace if they did port it. I've played the 360 game and it's not even up to the standards of SO3 imo. It's OK and some of it's reviews were pretty harsh but will there be much opf a PS3 market left for a game PS3 gamers will get over a year late that got crappy reviews? That isn't up to series standards? IDK but can't see it. It would need lots of extras and improvements to make it viable and, of course that pushes up costs. So I doubt it'll happen, it wasn't that good and would PS3 nly gamers really want or need it when it would arrive(i.e after FF13 and many others)on the platform?
@fox01 are you serious sony definatly doesnt pay to get games this gen this game was suppose to be a simultaneous multiplatform release but microsoft wanted it first just like so many other third party 360 exclusives that eventually come to ps3 also if you look at SO4 on 360 it doestn have that little box that says "only on x-box"
I'm going out on a limb and predicting this is the game Sixth Axis were on about. They said a former 360 exclusive was coming to ps3 And i hope so i heard it was pretty good
You and me both had the same suspicion (though I may have had more possibilities than SO4 that I said). Still, though, I hope that it happens. SE really has to give the PS3 something physical soon. @jackdoe: "But is Star Ocean LH exactly popular? I mean, it didn't get the best word of mouth, so I figure that a release on the PS3 will do pretty horribly." TSA DID say it was a "niche" title. Depends on what your definition of "niche" is. EDIT FOR UPDATE: Since I DO rent from Gamefly, I put this onto my GameQ. That way, at the very least I can follow it in case something were to develop from this (this may be a mistake, but oh well).
Assuming they actually have a scoop and aren't bullsh!tting, then this game may be the title they are referring to. Unless they are referring to a potential US release of the PS3 version of TOV, which would be better news for PS3 owners. But is Star Ocean LH exactly popular? I mean, it didn't get the best word of mouth, so I figure that a release on the PS3 will do pretty horribly.
I thought they were talking about Castle Crashers
Well they said it was 'popular', i think it did about half a million (dont quote me) which isnt bad and qualifies as polular
Much better battle system than Infinite Undiscovery Tri-Ace...but for some reason enjoyed infinite Undiscoveriey's Story more...strange I know. Still nothing have topped Kaim and Lost Odyssey though.. One of the best Tracks in the game. Star Ocean 4- Skyward Bound http://www.youtube.com/watc... Motoi Sakuraba
I must said the string are awesome! Very much as a symphonia but the string, GOD LOVE IT!
just empty and without feelings....I think, the strings convey that. Can you hear the despair but hope is in the air... Hey not every JRPG is gonna be great and I've played most on next-gen so far. Lost Odyssey comes closes to feeling complete. It wasn't your run of the mill, EMO looking child trying to save the world...Much respect for KAIM. KAY!!!!
^ as a musician I must said it really impress me BIG TIME!. I need that soundtrack ASAP.
Get the limited edition SO4 then. =) Has the soundtrack included (which was the #1 reason I got the limited edition). I love Motoi's work, but I think his best was in Eternal Sonata (Trusty Bell in Japan), that soundtrack is absolutely stunning. ...Yeah, I'm kind of into game and film soundtracks, you can probably tell. Still waiting for Killzone 2 soundtrack to be released....
There was no doubt that this game would eventually make it over. Now everyone gets to enjoy it. Good to see that Square Enix could be making smarter decisions when it comes to its titles. They can use the cash (although DQIX is making them buckets of it).
has the to be the most annoyign POS disk-swapping game ever conceived. god every minutes of the 230h ive done on this game made me wish it would be on PS3 so ahrd it wasnt even funny anymore.
This game bored the hell out of me on 360. It's repetitive, the story is kinda lame and you spend way too much time in ridiculously long dungeons. Not exactly an RPG I'd say is worth porting unless you are just that bored.
A game like Star Ocean would be leaked first by Famitsu if it were the case. That being said, unless the overall visual style is changed, hate the creepy doll look, and the godawful english voice acting redone or removed (the two things that kept me away from the 360 game) then no thanks to a potential PS3 version.
I dont care if this game is on ps3 or not. I played it on 360 and as an rpg fan i dont see how you disillusioned jrpg fans can call this gimmicky excuse for a modern game that feels exactly like rpgs did 10 years ago excellent. Im boycotting all squareenix games until they put out a quality modern title that isnt stuck in 1997. Im thinking ff13vs
of course, XBOX360 always first. because XBOX360 has lot of buggy and glitchy. every development team know PS3's games has no buggy and glitchy. PLAY B3YOND.
lol WAIT B3YOND to play Xbox 360 games AKA NG2 and Tales of veperia.
what about Halo 3, Gears of War 1, 2, Fallout 3, and Fallout 3's DLC? they are master of buggy and glitchy!!!! wait!!!!! xbox360 has lot of games with UE3(unreal engine 3 aka buggy engine) than PS3. enjoy it!!!!
talking about waiting. You guys waited a whole gen for FF and DMC.
dude im a proud ps3 owner and fan buthave you ever played lair or socom? every console has glitchy games
its funny how it comes that Lair is oen of my favorites game lol i bought it when the *analog command download* (or smthing liek that) was already out, wich allowed u to use the analog sticks instead sixaxis, and hey its fairly impressive n better with those trust me :S
Even if it is true, SE wont have my money with this one. They already got Ms money to shaft PS3 owners. Not interested, specially now that finally the jRPG drag is coming to an end. After Demons Souls come in Resonance of Faith, WKC and FFXIII, plus another Atlus's title (dont remember the game).
It's Tri-Ace though.
It was a SE business decision to move the PS3 exclusive of S04 to the 360 (It was also a greedy decision on their part). Tri Ace "mostly" did make the game before the SE takeover, but the game still did get the tainted stench of bad business.
Just like Vesperia, I don't care about this mediocre RPG. If they do release it on PS3 then they can keep it in Japan only but it will still be funny because the 360 would've lost another exclusive. Besides, PS3 already has much better RPGs coming out like Demon's Souls & White Knight Chronicles.
I don't play mediocre jrpg, so only TOV for me.
buying if they added the jap voiceovers, and even then I'd wait for it to be lowered in price first.
maybe its because the game sold better in the US than Japan. Since they already have all the English voice and text done they can release the game in the US region first before Japan.
PS3 = v1.0 XBOX 360 = v0.9 (BETA) Thank you 360 fans! ^_^ Now bring it on!
Like I said, starved for RPGs.
Me and the rest of the JRPG loving crowd on the PS3 will lap it up if true, honestly, the seasoned Playstation brand is where the real JRPG aficionados are holding at :P* *DS doesn't count.
I was under the impression the game did not sell well and that the staff working on it had already stated that they weren't doing a port due to the poor sales of the 360 version?
