JRPGs will sell better on the PS3 worldwide then the Xbox, simply because of Japan. But you have to take in the fact that every title is different. A Tales of... game has a better rep and more hype then a niche title like Valkyria Chronicles (which fan base is still growing) So you can't really compare their sales.

If Tales of Vesperia was released both on the PS3 and Xbox at the same time I guarantee that it would of sold a LOT more on the PS3 worldwide. It might even still sell better when the PS3 port comes out (with bonus content to boot) I heard lots of Japan's Tales of... fans were pissed that they ported it to the PS3 so much later because they had to buy an xbox for it and now a superior port is coming out on the PS3. And nobody wants a xbox in Japan.

And Final Fantasy is going to sell like crazy, that's a fact. And I'm sure it's going to be a great game too. As for White Knight Chronicles, I don't trust Famitsu's opinion. They've gave some pretty weird scores for games in the past. I'll wait to see for myself.

And actually the PSP is doing better then the Wii in Japan (thanks to the Monster Hunter games me thinks) With more total units sold. So far this year it's sold twice as many as the Wii. Which shows how different Japan and America are.
The DS on the other hand has everybody beat.

Why not just say that games with a good reputation will sell better than the newcomer's ?

Example? :S

Final Fantasy serie
Assassins creed serie (not long untill Assassins creed 2 release)
Metal gear solid serie
God of war serie
Dantes Inferno (a newcomer.. but will be a succsess i guess... since it can compare to god of war serie)
Oblivion ''serie'' (Oblivion comes 2010)
Call of duty serie
Far Cry serie
and more..

All those games will be on the ''top selling'' list..... just because their last game was a big succsess....
Take the Metal gear solid.. as an example

And i have already chosen wich games i am going to buy this year.... and i think many people have made a top 5 (or higher) list like me..

Only two of the games you list are RPG's though biingo which is what this thread is about. Also there is no Elder Scrolls (read: Oblivion is Elder Scrolls 4) coming out any time soon.

Hold on.

Stop shining a light for one side please, because it's coming from your ass.

The PS3 is getting 3 JRPG exclusives in the near future. Also Valkyria Chronicles isn't an RPG. And Vesperia was a timed exclusive to the 360 first, and it's only on PS3 in Japan, so I don't know why your fanboyism is bitching on it [unless of course, it sucks].


There is not one single exclusive RPG property on the PS3 worth getting excited over and all of it's good RPG's come out on the Xbox 360 too.


This isn't a fact. This is an opinion and also a prediction, again coming from your anus.

Btw, the mater of the fact is: RPGs are sucking in general atm. JRPGs are the worser victim; Japanese devs & publishers want to go "western" because of this sucky generation. It's probably why we've seen more RPGs on the 360.

Even so, bragging on about how much 360 has more RPGs really doesn't dignify the fact that RPGs nowadays suck balls compared to the last 3 generations. I mean seriously, apart from Lost Odyssey and maybe SO: TLH, I pretty much dislike all those RPGs except Valkyria Chronicles, and VC isn't even an RPG! Let's hope SE don't don't pull out another shit title [such as Last Remnant] and hope FFXIII, and FFvsXIII be masterpieces.

Edit: k, so VC is a T-RPG. Very different from what I percept as a normal RPG, but I guess demonkillua is correct.

@Nazareeni (since I don't feel like quoting) - Valkyria Chronicles is considered a RPG. I don't know exactly why, but I guess the only thing you can control is how other characters die if you don't like them. I've been trying to complete the game without anyone dying. I haven't bothered to finish the game yet.

The primary reason I bought a PS3 was for the JRPG's and so far I'm disappointed. Can't wait for White Knight Chronicles too. I already have several of the X360 version of these games and while the bonus content sounds nice, I'm thinking it's not worth it to have to shell out another 60 bucks for a game that is about 95% the same. Also considering while games are natively developed in 720p, at least the X360 can upscale to 1080p.

Chrono Trigger DS is out....and a JRPG lulz, and Oblivion was boring, now Mass Effect 2 is going to be the second coming of Jesus.


american RPG's doesn't even count as an RPG, their story sucks so bad, mass effect I admitt is good but also fucked up, the sex scene is not even that great.

1080p of the 360 is just like 980i on the ps3, but mostly multiplatform games is only on 720p on the ps3 reason is up too developers, that's why a lot of people are nervous cuz of the 360's ffXIII so the ps3 ver might be just on 720p. but who knows it's developed on the ps3 1st.. one more thing when you compare 1080p AAA exclusive titles of the 360 to the ps3 1080p AAA title you'll see the difference on a 42+" higher TV. 360 can't do real HDMI though its not alot difference.

Actually, the biggest different with HDMI between the 2 systems is that X360 only has v1.2 where PS3 has v1.3. There's a few differences between the 2 versions which I don't all recall at the top of my head. It's really ignorant to say it isn't real HDMI. HDMI is a new standard and there have been revisions to it.

I just did a quick skim through, so the list isn't 100% accurate, but I'm looking on Gamespot right now and it doesn't say anything about another release plan for somewhere else other then Japan. Though Gamespot may not be the best place to use as a only source.

Let me see... If there are any other planned releases I can not seem to find info on them, so for the time being it's Japan only. They could still end up releasing the game in other countries.

This is by far the dumbest post i have read here. and there are some pretty dumb ones, but you are putting fable 2 over japanese RPGS? dont get me wrong fables is a "good" game but not a top notch great classic game. Fallout 3? I played it and it is mildly entertaining. Mass effect, to me, was better.

anyways, the only PS3 rpg that i am waiting on is FFXIII.

.....i should put a sarcasm meter out there. damn dude i thought me saying cant wait for chrono trigger on DS would erase everything i said. yeah fable 2 suck dick. i most likely replied to this post before it came out. it wasnt an RPG more like an action/adventure game. fallout 3. i just love how you can make morale choices. i love realistic games. mass effect. well that is a pretty damn good western RPG. every studio in the west should take note on that game. if i said cant wait for chrono trigger on DS, would be saying something. if you do not love or heard of chrono trigger and call ur self an RPG type person. then you should make ur self a time machine and go back. chrono trigger set up the whole new world of rpgs with its ground breaking gameplay or its story. chrono trigger was the child of the greatest creators/producers of J-RPG....Square Enix. if you love chrono trigger then you god damn love the final fantasy series or the dragon quest series.

is this a dumb post now?
