Rumor: Star Ocean 4 being developed for Xbox 360?

A user has found a job listing for 3D modelers, designers and programmers to work on two projects for an unnamed game company. The games are "the latest entry in a famous fantasy RPG series" and "a new fantasy RPG". Both games are on the Xbox360 platform, and the general location of the work place is given as the Ooimachi area, which is where Tri-Ace's offices are located.

One of these projects, "a new fantasy RPG", must be Infinite Undiscovery. The other project, "the latest entry in a famous fantasy RPG series", fits to be Star Ocean 4. Is the game going to be multiplatform or an Xbox 360 exclusive? Time will tell.

This is great, Xbox 360 version of Star Ocean would look and play better

xhi44487d ago

drunk? I'm sorry but I just don't see how if it was on the 360 it would "look and play better", with the right time and effort it would "look" better on the ps3 easily, and the PS3's controls are perfect for RPG's, unlike the FPS trigger totting 360 controller with the analog sticks in perfect ease for FPS games. Ignorant much?

MikeMichaels4487d ago

...just don't butcher the game to fit on a DVD9 if this is Multi-plat.

osirisomeomi4487d ago

Actually, the Sixaxis won an Emmy award for innovation and technology. I'd trust them more than IGN...

YoMeViet4487d ago

yay another 4-6 disk dvd game for you to play...
lets hope the dvd drive won't burn out from constantly changing disk

jaja14344487d ago

Ohh yes I'm sure the changing of a DVD every 20 will destroy, no not destroy something worse...hmm. Start spewing lava? Yes thats it. I'm sure it will spew lava because I have to change it every 20 or so hours.

doubt there's anything to this rumor

squelchy154487d ago (Edited 4487d ago )

i do also believe that it will play and look better on the 360,
i also think that the 360 analog sticks are very easy to use with RPGs
and did you forget that the ps3 also has...well what sony like to call 'trigger buttons'....trigger buttons that are made so well that your finger can easily slip off of them due to the shape of them

Anego Montoya FTMFW4487d ago

WHAT RPGs you played on 360. LOL.

what they worked good for BLUEDRAGON?

Zhuk4487d ago

The Xbox 360s award winning controller is better for anything than the PS3s outdated 10 year old design, which hasnt even got something as simple as rumble instead they add a useless feature like sixaxis which makes garbage like Lair

OatLoops4487d ago (Edited 4487d ago )

What award did the 360 controller win (never heard of it winning one so I'd like to know, thanks)? And last time I checked, games at TGS were utilizing rumble :-X. Don't blame a crappy game on the controller, it's the developers fault. I'm sure the Wii has plenty of crappy games using the Wii-mote as well (maybe even more).

OatLoops4487d ago

Analog sticks work about the same on 360 as they do on PS3 (imo- PS3's are better, but who cares). The only time a shoulder button is used in Blue Dragon (so far, I just started a week ago) is if I want to battle more than one enemy on the map. I don't know about the look better argument either...BD has some frame issues and a little slowdown in places. Not enough to say the game is crap or anything ( I really like it), but it is noticable.

Anego Montoya FTMFW4487d ago

that`s funny when I OWNED a 360(before it broke twice) i hated the contoller. why?

1. you have to SYNC it.(me friend NEW 360 came back sync button doesn`t work can`t play his games) so the sync button suxs.

2.second battery life.

3.can`t just reassign the controllers.

4.the headset plugs into the controller.

5.there is NO innovation at all, compared to last gen.

6.rumble you barely notice it after a day or two.

7.sixaxis is GREAT when NOT over using it. FLOW rules. heavy as phuck.

9.don`t try to TRICK ME, i owned the piece of sh!t system,that you love.

10.see you on PSN in a year.

11. you cant controllanything when your CONSOLES broken.

so, ZHUK.

ZHUK the phuck up.

Anego Montoya FTMFW4487d ago

i agree.

the analog sticks are about the SAME.

100% true.

Zhuk4487d ago

The Xbox 360 controller has won awards for its ergonomics.

Here is what IGN says about Sixaxis:

'Compared to Microsoft's uber-comfortable Xbox 360 pad, the Sixaxis feels cheap, plasticky, uncomfortable and disconcertingly light -- almost as if it's going to fly out of your hands during those more extreme gaming moments.

More worrying still, the newly-designed lower L and R shoulder triggers feel more like they belong on an early controller prototype than the near-final model. Replicating the 360 pad, rather than being simple shoulder-mounted buttons, the triggers are now hinged horizontally along the controller, with pressure forcing them inward along the bottom -- like triggers then, really. Trouble is they're placed almost unnaturally low meaning we found ourselves operating them by jamming our fingers in between the hinges to apply pressure, rather than using the buttons themselves. What's more, the triggers are convex, with no grooves to keep your fingers in place'

Douchebaggery4487d ago

controller is a personal preference but being a x360 fanboy you shouldn't boast about award winning design when trying to show superiority of the x360 hardware

mighty_douche4487d ago

lets leave the "my pads bigger than you pad!" in the playground...

if Star Ocean is ever coming to the 360, it will be because it is multiplatform.

DZNetworks4487d ago

Not unless Microsoft buys the rights to the game.

mighty_douche4487d ago (Edited 4487d ago )

lol this whole thing of trying to pass off unjustified rumours as news is really starting to get out of hand.

eidt @ Anego Montoya, cheers mate, its so true tho, im sure if i search the internet enough i could find rumours that bill gates was born a women, doesnt make it news tho. but perhaps it isnt just a rumour...

Anego Montoya FTMFW4487d ago (Edited 4487d ago )

and BINGO was his name-O.
