Does Sony own Wild Arms franchise?

Their name is found alongside the developments of the first set of Wild Arms, including the ones for PS 2 I believe.

However, the one for PSP isn't so.

How is the series, is it worth looking into?

It's pretty original with the whole "western" thing. Some of the games were good and some weren't.

Music is great.

I'm gonna check out those games for PS 1 hopefully soon. I hope the first two are worth playing since one of the music in 2 is simply amazing.

Wild Arms 2 is terrible. Don't waste your money on it. If the story and characters were worth anything in the original Japanese version, it's all ruined by the horrible, horrible translation. The gameplay itself is dull and the battles are laughably easy-- in fact, it might be the easiest RPG I've ever played. I skip around 80% of the battles and I still kill regular enemies in one or two hits and I'm overleveled for all bosses. Visuals are an eyesore, even for the PS1. The music is the only okay thing about it.

It's not worth your time.

Well, that's a mouthful of criticism you laid out, and thus I will duly note your opinion and pass the second one, then. However, one thing that's making me want to play it is this music right here:

You gotta admit the music is pretty good.

I dont remember it being laughably easy some of the secret bosses trapped in those pyramids were tough.

The first 3 games were absolutely fantastic. 1 and 3 being my favorites.
