Third Birthday Success=PS3 Parasite Eve

#1 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

 "The team had a lot of experience and knew a lot about making a game for PSP which is why we chose PSP as the platform for this game," said Square Enix's Yoshinori Kitase during a presentation at Gamescom in regards to The 3rd Birthday. "But if this game turns out to be a success then we'd be looking at extending the franchise into PS3."   

Each and every one of you had better pick up a copy when the game drops.

If it's good I'd buy it... I'm always itching to feed my PSP some game time (Especially since my poor DS has problems with the lower screen).

Sooo... PS3 connectivity hooks confirmed?? 
If any game deserves an infected mode, this is it. 
Man it's amazing to think that this franchise has never been on the PS2.  I guess that's what we're getting with this one. ;) 
Most likely I will buy the soundtrack before I even get hold of the game.

I'll pick it up. As for paying for, that's a different question.

Eh, not sure I'd even want that. On the PSP it can do whatever it wants as the development costs aren't that high (well, presumably anyway -- I mean, the game has been in development for about 5 years now) so they can still make money off of it even if it isn't an overwhelming success, but on the PS3, especially if it's an exclusive (especially if it's a Square Enix game with a development cycle of about 10 years), a game really needs to sell. I could see them stripping it of everything that makes it unique and turning it into a generic cover-based third-person shooter just to cater more to the West.
 
A Deus Ex-like game by Eidos Montreal set in the Parasite Eve universe would be pretty interesting, though.
