I don't see why anyone would care about the graphics of a Disgaea game.

They're sprites...deal with it.
Come on man... No one expected it to look like a next-gen game. But it just barely looks better then the PS2 incarnations (mainly due to have smooth the 3D texture look, not that they have any real detail to them or anything). At the very least, I was expecting Odin Sphere level sprite work.

It still looks like a PS1 game though? I don't see any difference in the sprites from Disgaea2.



That people pay good money for awesome srpgs with great gameplay and great stories (and great voice acting)?
Fine, PS1 game being played with PS3 upscaling and smoothing turned on. Still the games weren't that big on visuals, it had a charming look to them.

I realize Sony has been good to NI in the past, but at some point you have to make decisions based on financial sanity and not loyalty.

On the plus side, as has been pointed out, it wouldn't be hard for them to port this to PSP/Wii if the PS3 version bombs.

Why not make it a bargain PSN game? It doesn't make sense going to retail with it at full price

If they're not even going to put in any sort of effort on making the game look slightly better than the last six or seven srpgs they put out on the PS2 they could at least knock 10-20$ off of the price.

I like Disgaea as much as the next guy, but this is freaking inexcusable.

Blurry, crappy sprites that look like something the SNES could pull off have no business in a PS3 game.

PSP or PS2, fine. PSN downloadable? maybe.

full retail PS3 game? F*ck no.

Genius!
Are you the same Speevy that has been hyping Culdept Saga since it's announcement?

If I recall, they were working on a PSP title but decided to port it over to the PS3. Could this be it?

N1 games only do around 80-120k in Japan anyhow. By 2008, I'm sure they can at least sell that little, especially since there won't be much rpg/srpg competition on the PS3.

Plus these games cost like nothing to make. They could sell 20k and still make a profit.

That's not gonna sell either, but I sure as heck want it.

My only personal issue here is that it's not on the PS2, because I actually LIKE Disgaea.

I hope youre right.
not sure why this couldnt be done on Wii or even Ps2 since the expected numbers are so low. It just doesnt make much sense. If it was a PSN game sure, but Ps3?

Eh. It is a beautiful game though. Those Dreamcast remarks were kinda getting out of hand regardless and it's not even a major title per se. What does he have to say about this? It better not be much both ways is all I'm saying.

Yeah, this is most likely what "makai wars" became.

Why do new N1 games sell less with 20 million PS2s sold then they did when D1 came out and only 10 million PS2s were out. Shouldn't there have been a 2x increase? ;P

When you're only selling to a tiny niche group of people, the install bases don't really matter.

Yeah. I think this would be a stupid game to put on the Wii, but it's pretty weird to see it on the PS3, too.

That's not what it says in the press release.

Meh, I didn't expect much more improvement than that. I just hope it costs $50 or less here. I'm sick of every game even the niche titles taking the $60 price-tag.

Culdcept looks much, much better than this. I'm really disappointed because N1's sprites have real personality, but I'm just plain sick of the low resolution at this point. Others have done better on the PS2. There's no more room for excuses.

I just threw in Soul Cradle into the search and found the media create for opening week:

05. (PS2, Nippon Ichi Software) Soul Cradle: Sekai wo Kurau Mono - 43,253 / NEW

And then it fell off the chart.

Then the year before:

3. PS2 Disgaea 2 - 104,059 NEW

And then it fell off the chart.

So after the massive support they promised the Wii this is what happens? Talk about slap in the face.

Wait, first you hype and pretty much viral that 2D 360 japanese SRPG . It's A-OK with you.

Then comes a 2D japanese SRPG PS3 offering and you do your typical veiled trolling.

How obvious and not unexpected.

Sure, but Soul Cradle isn't a Disgaea game.

Again, it has the numbers for Disgaea 1/2 right in the PR.

But if you don't want to go by that, Famitsu's 2006 half year chart had Disgaea 2 at 149,148.

Because it's the only real reason at this point why it would go to the PS3 instead of one of the more viable systems.

Ouch. I feel for NIS America, who's going to have their work cut out for them getting this past SCEA.

1) I'm not saying it's going to be a bad game. I'm just saying "Why PS3?"

For the record, Culdcept Saga is a 3D game, and would be better suited on another platform too.

But since it's on the 360, I'll play it there.

2) Stop following me around.
