Ken's Rage - 360/ps3
Dynasty Warriors 7 - 360/ps3
DYNASTY Warriors Gundam 3 - 360/ps3
Dynasty Warriors 7 XL and Empires - ps3 only
One Piece Warriors - ps3 only
Warriors Orochi 3 - 360/ps3
Ken's Rage 2 - 360/ps3
One Piece Warriors 2 - ps3 only

Not port begging but the inconsistency is annoying and more than a little illogical.

Warriors games have pretty much always been there on Sony's platforms, I mean just to give a early few examples; DW1 was an exclusive to the PS1 and DW2 was an exclusive launch title for the PS2.

Plus, it doesn't help that the 360 has been pretty much just a level above being dead in Japan for the last several years.

I'm surprised they're all not PS3 only. These games only put up big numbers in Japan, and 360 is irrelevant there.

The 360 versions I am talking about usually made exclusive for 360 in the west. For example Warriors Orochi 3 did not have a 360 version in Japan yet I have a copy for 360 sitting on my shelf at home.

Maybe they rightly or wrongly assume that the Fist of the North Star audience is on both systems but One Piece (or modern anime fans) are mostly on PS3.

Or they just can't for whatever reason justify a 360 port for America.

It actually did. It sold as well as you would expect a 360 version will in Japan.

The only musou game that gotten a 360 version but did not release that version in Japan was Dynasty Warriors 7.

I assume that Koei just decided that all the extra work of making a 360 port isn't worth it compared to the sales it would get.

Because in Japan no one would ever buy the 360 version. Surprised they even were multiplat

I think it has more to do with the times the games were released, and profit production. THe Mainline Warriors always got a 360 release, but their expansions didn't. They attempted to release some expansions on 360 (Like for Samurai Warriors 2, I believe it was), but they were download only. 360 also can't have a disk removed and inserted to "link" with a game in the same way as PS3.

Their Xbox releases have also been spotty in quality (Like how warriors orochi 2 had horrible framerate, same with Strike Force, I hear), so it seems like development on the system has always been hard for them, as well.

It seems like there was a time when Koei wanted to support both equally, but failing JP Xbox 360 sales make that less reasonable going forward. If they're going to make a port, they now have Vita and Wii U as an option, so 360 is less and less appealing.

Even though I have a PS3 (and Wii U) now, I'll continue to support the 360 releases of their games as long as they publish them in the US.

I remember having friends playing through it on my 360 friend list for months before a western release :|

I'd wait for an official response on this, before ruling it out. Wouldn't be suprising if they wanted to make some money back on the PS3 version first, or, as mentioned earlier, release it around the time the PSN version gets a price drop, since they're basically the same game, this time.

Nope, Siliconera mentioned that it was a PSN only release in NA again.

Update: Namco Bandai have confirmed to Siliconera that One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 will be a download-only (PlayStation Network) release in North America, just like the first game.

This is rather puzzling given they're still publishing a Vita game this year that would have the same costs associated to releasing it as One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 ... I guess the first game sold a number, that while good enough to get the second one localized, wasn't enough to where they felt the smaller Vita userbase could make it worth their while.

News on part 2 is still slim, but generally, when a Warriors game gets a sequel, you get less-focused retellings of old content, as newer stuff takes the main stage now. So while an arch might get 3 stages in a previous game, it might get one in the new game, since they spent more time working on the new stuff. They'll spend most of their time making the new stuff look awesome, and the older things are just mentioned as a necessairy element.

The first game also has a few characters who have additional, alternate moves that are only made available when equipping certain items. Nothings been shown about this moving over to game 2 yet, and it is likely that this won't directly make the cut. So you might miss out on a few moves or playstyles.

To me, Pirate Warriors 1 over-pads the single player mode with distracting elements, that aren't fun for as many times as they want you to do them. But it has great presentation where it counts. Koei-fied versions of the manga and anime scenes are great, and if you're a lapsed OP fan, it's a great way to catch up on a lot of the important parts of the story.

If you're the kind of person who labels musou as "repetatative", it might just be worth wating to jump in on the second.

However, if you can appreciate the changes in each one, and want to what will likley be the best telling of the old material, get both.

Its doubtful. Pirate Warriors 1 did however get a retail and PSN release in Europe, while the US only got the PSN release. But even so, i still doubt that a Vita version will come out in the west. At least import is possible, but then there is the language barrier of course (unless one knows japanese).
