Should Sony Dethrone The Final Fantasy Series?

After Square Soft moved the Final Fantasy series from Nintendo to Sony, fans could always count on the next Final Fantasy title to appear only on PlayStation. Those days are long gone as Square Enix is flexing their 3rd party muscle this gen by making the multi-platform move with their biggest franchise.

In the name of all things business no one can blame Square Enix for expanding the series on other platforms. That’s why, in the name of all things business, it’s time that Sony created a role playing franchise to rival Final Fantasy.

sony could go ahead and create a first party JRPG but it wont dethrone the FF series in terms of its sales and popularity that should be common sense

Final Fantasy wasn't popular from the very start (as far as I know). Much like CoD it took quite a few games before it gained the popularity it has now.
For Sony to create a new IP it would take a long time to get as popular as FF. Even longer when you facter in that while it's gaining popularity future FF games will continue to increase in popularity as well.

Final Fantasy was huge, it save square soft. I thas been a hit since day one. Much like CoD, if you where a PC gamer, trust me, CoD was a hit when it came out.

Sony already tried to do this, many times, I am suprised so many people here are not aware of sony's past attempt at Jrpg, there are quite a few infact.

But that does not mean Sony should not attempt to make AAA RPGs of its own.

ChozenWoan3065d ago

was one of the few RPGs that could have competed toe to toe with the FF series... if Sony would just start making sequels that is.

Come on Sony, you have a lot of PS1 and PS2 IPs just begging for some HD remakes or sequels. Now Make.Believe in them and Make it happen.

sinncross3066d ago

Sony own a few JRPG Ip's... they should get sequels out if you ask me

zootang3066d ago (Edited 3066d ago )

Not Sony owned but Sony exclusive, Persona 5 could do this

Edit: The persona series i meant exclusive

Noctis Aftermath3066d ago

I hope they announce P5 soon, it could do over a million(sales) probably.

BldyShdw3066d ago

I remember them saying they had started P5 but were reluctant to say what console it was for, I'm still hoping its PS3

Sony don't want to Dethrone The Final Fantasy Series... Why they'll go Against their Own Product, Remember that Sony Own 9% of SE and FF Series sell great... Why go against Something that Bring them Money...

ZombieAutopsy3065d ago

You forget this "journalist" prolly doesn't consider things like that.

I love how the title says this like it's the easiest thing in the world.

It's not like they haven't tried.

Godmars2903066d ago

You're counting the one time with Legend of Dragoon? WKC doesn't even count. Not unless they start doing WKC in other universes while keeping to the main theme.

Montrealien3065d ago (Edited 3065d ago )

not only one time...

Beyond the Beyond

Arc the Lad

Dark Cloud

Legend of Legaia

Rogue Galaxy


I would love a sequel to any of these great SCE rpg classics.

Abash3066d ago

They should just give people Dark Cloud 3 already

NewYork2143066d ago

agree. would love dark cloud 3

Arvis_Jaggamar3065d ago

Dark CLoud 2 was one of the best games on the PS2. We need another one!


MajestieBeast3066d ago

Persona has already dethroned final fantasy IMO.

If they like to keep exclusives and not have them cut-down so it's counterpart can fit on 3 DVD's, then change something.
