It's almost too easy, isn't it. It's so close to common sense, it's not funny.

Hope Monolith can break free from the chains of Nintendo, so they can release their games on Playstation consoles and gain a larger audience.

Mistwalker makes games for companies that are willing to fund them, sony could pay them to make an rpg if they wanted. As for Monolithsoft Tetsuya Takahashi was pretty much forced to rush his games out while working for namco and square-enix, why would he leave a company willing to fund a game as big as Xenoblade. Shackled by Nintendo lol, they give developers time and resources to make great games. Look at Pandora's Tower, Ganbarion were given 4 years to make that.

Great game, isn't it? I finished everything the game had to offer and put in about 170 hours doing it. I'd never spent that much time on any single playthrough of an RPG in my life until I played Xenoblade. I'd love to have seen it developed for HD, but I know the budget would probably also have been prohibitively expensive and the game might not even exist on the same scale that it does.

TC, your logic is just stupid. If they made Xenoblade with PS3/Xbox 360-capable graphics, then it would've taken 5-6 years to create it, rather than 3.

Also, inform yourself. Nintendo made it. Xenoblade going to the PS3 is like Super Mario Galaxy going to the PS3.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

It certainly is an amazing jrpg. Perhaps even the best i played in a decade. But it is what it is, thats the whole purpose of exclusives. Kinda like how people screamed foul when bayonetta 2 was announced for wii u exclusive.

If it had been developed for the PS3, we would have gotten a gimped game.

The budget would have been through the roof, and all the things that make Xenoblade so great would be watered down or cut out entirely.

Does it have stellar super HD graphics? No, but it is a beautiful game nonetheless and it's a huge game, and one of the best games of the 7th generation.

I second this. It would've revitalised the JRPG genre within PS3 (with FF making an a$$ of it). Sure we have games like D.souls, which is an awesome outlook on the genre. But it strays from the original set-up. And than there's Tales of, which if it isn't limited to Japan. It's probably not up to par with some of the other legendary RPGS (IMO)

And as a side note, although it has nothing to do with why it was developed for the Wii, the PS3 would have had MUCH smaller sales potential. The game wasn't hurting for sales either, I know that they did at least 2 reprints.

Also, there are quite a few good JRPGs on the Wii.
Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.
