You know, it's funny that I said SC coming to PS3 in English was likely the only thing that would convince me to buy one some time back. And that was meant as a complete joke because yeah, I want SC enough to get it no matter what it comes out on, but I hate the PS3 with an immense passion and doubted that would ever happen.
Dang it, Falcom, don't make me eat my words on that. Though at least if that did happen and even if XSEED localizes it, we'd likely get the PC version as well and I'd only buy PS3 if it was the only version that existed.
This is certainly an interesting development. Personally, I like my handhelds and think the games look wonderful as-is. How would (err, will) HD improve on the experience? But, this sets an interesting precedent, assuming more HD rereleases may happen.
This is certainly interesting news.
I totally didn't write the same thing...
Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed. For more info: http://www.worldofys.com/yso/
My guess is that the end result will be the PSP game in terms of content but looking like the PC version graphically. Of course, should they feel like adding tangible extras and go on to similarly do HD versions of SC and 3rd, there's some dummied out content just asking to be included.
Also, if this is being done internally by Falcom, I'll give you great odds that the long-expected multiplatform version of Ys Seven sees the light of day on the PS3 if it ever happens.
