Xenoblade Chronicles NEEDED to be a PS3 game and NOT go to the Wii!!!

What would have been the cost of developing Xenoblade and The Last Story on the PS3 and/or 360? The same cost that Factor 5 and a handful of other developers paid this gen, perhaps?

Factor 5 closed because they released a lack-luster game within the console's first year (meaning there wasn't a huge audience to sell it to). The amount of hype Lair had would've made it a success if it had taken another year in the oven...

Maybe we could get an HD port on the Wii U.


But really, the PS3 already has tons of good JRPG's. People piss on the Wii for not getting good games constantly and whine even harder when it actually gets good games.



because if the wii has 95% garbage shovelware games then the remaining 5% are games we all care and want and its not fair because you then have to buy a garbage system to play a few amazing games.

oh and Xenoblade Chronicles and Last Story >>>>>>>>> than any ps3 jrpg and thats just wrong.


Nobody is forcing you to buy the bad games.

The vast majority of PS2 games were shovelware too, but nobody cares about that. Same with Atari and NES. The most popular system is just going to attract bad games, it's always been the case.

Nier >>>>>>>>>>> Xenoblade and Last Story all day, erryday
Xenoblade is just "well polished", but it isn't "amazing" or remember worthy in any degree, unlike Nier, which I will remember 10 years from now for certain, where as I have forgotten the names of all but one character from Xenoblade.

And 95% of all games on PS3 are crap too, maybe not shovel ware, but why should I care if it's Wii Fit 2 or AC 41254 or CoD 4354654? I won't buy none of the games.

I pre-ordered Xenoblade and it is indeed a great game. The best RPG I've played in a decade. It looks fine on Wii, sure it would look better in HD, but it's not like it's ugly as it is.

...and yeah Nintendo owns Monolith Soft...

Nier has been called the greatest RPG of this generation or past decade by many western media outlets and gamers. Nier mostly gets praise for the soundtrack and story, but not for the gameplay. Gameplay is the most important aspect of any game, and Xenoblade does that part a whole lot better than Nier.

In terms of gameplay/story/music, Nier is more like 5/9/9, while Xenoblade is more like 9/8/9.

Kingdoms of Amalur had stellar reviews and still failed to make enough to keep the developer afloat, iirc. Xenoblade and Last Story might have suffered a similar fate if made with production values sufficient to make them stack up visually with other efforts on the HD consoles.

I'd give XC more of a 7 more gameplay. It gets pretty tedious at some points and some of the party members' AI is atrocious.
