PSOne, PS2 had some decent RPG's but PSOne was almost ALL RPG's. Not even gonna mention FFVII, Brave Fencer Mushashi, Arc the Lad, Persona, Breath of Fire III, Castlevania: SOTN, Chrono Cross, FF Tactics, Kings Field (the grand father of the Dark Demon/Souls series), Legend of Dragoon, Lunar Silver Star Story and Lunar II, Suikoden II, Vagrant Story...

PS2 definitely. I'd say all Playstation consoles have been great for RPGs even if the PS3 is catching on just now and started off slow. I expect the Vita will do great too, just like the PSP did.

For original JRPGs localized for NA/EU, it's a tossup between PS1 and PS2. I picked 2 because I've logged far more hours with PS2 RPGs than with PS1, but I can see how it would go either way.

Follow those with the PSP, the PS3, then the Vita in last place. Admittedly, this isn't fair to the Vita, but it's too new to have a library of its own RPGs even worth mentioning.

If you put in backwards compatibility, the original PS3 (with PS2 backwards compatibility) is the obvious winner, but that's silly. :)

Really close, but games like dragon quest 8, Loads of MegaTen games, FF12 just won it for me. Heck MegaTen alone

Quality > Quantity

Therefore, PS1>PS2 in RPGs


PS2 had both just so you know.

Therefore, PS2 by a significant distance towards heaven.

PS2,, without a doubt,,, for every good title the PSX had,, the PS2 had 4 of that one.

There was just so many JRPGs on the PS2, it was ridiculous,,, with just Atlus, you had 15 great JRPGs at least. And thats just one developer.

Its all about the maths.
