Do people really think a FFVIIr will "save" the PS3 in Japan? Really?

That's what I'm also questioning. It may give the system a good boost in sales, but nothing short of a Dragon Quest announcement will really "save" the PS3 in Japan. FF, 7 or otherwise, does not seem to possess that same ability.

Sony published an FF game (that just happened to be FF7). not a DQ game. If its gonna be either it'd be anything from SE, it'd most likely be FF7.

it's inane to think any 1 game will save anything

but damn if it won't be the biggest megaton ever
No I don't think that one game can be a saviour which was why I used brackets but you add something like FFVII to FFXIII, Versus XIII, SO4, KH (rumor) and you have a VERY strong RPG lineup and together they can do a lot.

I also don't think the PS3 needs saving though...

Especially with games like Heavenly Sword and Lair.

Not sure if Dragon Quest announcement could save PS3 in Japan at this point.

Don't get me wrong - the game would sell about 3.5 million copies (probably), which equals to the game possibly selling 3.5 million new consoles.

If it were to release today then that would put the console at 1 million higher than the Wii, but development would take years, and by then the gap between Wii and PS3 will probably be much larger than it is now.

What's wrong with Heavenly Sword?

Apparently some people don't like it. And per usual there's a bunch of people trolling it who've never played it. Old news, I know.

Like I said, I REALLY don't see Sony funding entirely a sequel to an established series; I'd say it's almost impossible.

So either it is bad info and they meant Sony is funding a large part or a specific part of the development/or marketing, or it's not a known series but something new. And let's not forget it's just some guy who said it could save the PS3, that is just some dude's opinion on the news itself. I'm still betting on some sort of MMO.

Rough translation, I didn't tranlate the stuff on the Solid Eye and about the system about the ring around Snake since I think it was covered before. . .

>>New Characters:
Sunny: a female who has escaped from the grasps of the "Patriots"
Trevin: An individual involved with weapons-laundering who can erase IDs from weapons so that they can be used again.
Little Grey: A mysterious creature who accompanies Trevin
Others: Meril, Jonathon, Ed, Haven Trooper, etc.

>>You are able to customize weapons in MGS4, for instance, you can change the barrel of a M4A1 assault rifle and convert it into a shotgun style weapon.

>>Some weapons in MGS4:
Gas mine, M870 Custom, Javelin missle, Mk 17 Assault Rifle, M64E, operator handgun, M14EBR Sniper Rifle, Stun Knife

Seriously, what the PS3 need is a price slash plus a series of must have RPGs. Even then, that will only save PS3 in Japan.

As long as everything is rosy in nintendo-world.

Why not? Sony's of in a pretty desperate situation right now, and this is a surefire way of getting some high-profile exclusives.

O RLY. I guess Kojima is too nice to take advantage of his fanbots.

Actually, it's more like the whole thing is a giant plohole, with scattered islands of coherency here and then.
After MPO, I think Kojima's just rewriting the thing as he goes, and changing stuff because he came up with a "better" idea involving family members and Ocelot. He just can't let it be.

By the time they release MGS4's "expansion" version, the events of Shadow Moses will have been retconned into an unpleasant misunderstanding at a snow cone stand in Florida; this "snow cone stand" was actually an Italian ice stand in disguise, and the vendor was not only the son of Sokolov and Para-Medic, but also the mother of Master Miller.
