Good price on Eternal Sonata...game kinda made me mad though but don't want to spoil. And supposedly the ps3 version is better/harder

Ya, PS3 version is what stopped me from going for it since it comes with more content.

Decided to bite on it, who knows when I'll be able to get Eternal Sonata for good price. Doubt if I'll ever get the chance to pick the PS3 Version.

Extra Content for the PS3 Version: "Two Extra Dungeons, but I think I missed the second one. You can't miss Lament's, as far as I know. Basically you will see more major changes when you get to Baroque the first time. Also, The item locations are different. If you read a guide that tells you whats in each chest, you will notice the differences. For example, in the Fort theres a bow for Viola in one of the chests, instead its now a weapon for Frederick.

Another thing is I believe the skills are received at a slightly lower level, because you level slower.

You also get the two new characters, as well as the costumes. Polka gets 2 new costumes and Allegretto and Beat get one new Costume each.

PS3 Port is slightly harder, and you gain less experience. It also changes up the battle system alittle bit. First, I dont think in some of the outside areas theres rolling shade in the 360 version. Also, you don't start in formation anymore, your starting location in battle is at least slightly randomized." - Taken from Gamefaqs. (http://www.gamefaqs....swers?qid=12027)

Doesn't seem that rare to me there is ten Gamestops within 20 miles that have the PS3 version of it in my area.

That may be true, but it definitely had a lower print run than the 360 title.

For a long while there, it was almost impossible to find the PS3 version in B&M.

I assume it's just the lighting, but Bats' costume doesn't look as dumb in theirs.

eternal sonata is such a fantastic game. I played it on PS3, even though there are no trophies for it, the story and the additional content are fantastic. I never played the second bonus dungeon (the first one is story driven) however even without the bonus dungeon, get this game for the 360, ps3 whatever you can. Seriously, it's that good.

I played Eternal Sonata a couple of times on the 360, then watched my roommate play the PS3 version. Pros/cons of getting the PS3 version, IMO:

Pros:
-Enemy placement on the battlefield is randomized. The 360 version suffers a little in this regard... two different battles can sometimes turn out the exact same way.
-Two new characters. And they are awesome.

Cons:
-The extra dungeon. You'd think this would be a pro, but this extra dungeon is amazingly boring. And it adds nothing to the story.
-Extra/altered cutscenes. Again, you'd think this would be a pro, but some extra handholding was added to help the player understand the plot, and there were some minor tweaks that I think greatly weakened the story.

Meh:
-Extra costumes, which are really just palette swaps that look ugly compared to the defaults.
-Other minor changes I can't remember.

Basically, the PS3 version has slightly better gameplay (minus the awful dungeon) at the cost of a weakened story. It's a tossup. Whichever way you want, though, I recommend the game.

amazon review that sparked my curiosity

Eternal Sonata for the PS3 is a traditional style JRPG with a few kicks to keep it interesting.

There are no trophies for this game as of 3/2/11, but don't let that discourage you from trying this game out.

The story is fantastic with a great twist at the end (M. Night Shyamalan really should take some hints as to how it's correctly done)

The characters all keep your interest and do not bore you to wits end with stupid dialog. There are some great lessons to be learned in the message being portrayed in this game. The battle system starts out easy enough, but grows to become something I havn't seen in a while. An evolving battle system that doesn't frustrate you.
In fact, if you learn to master it, the game seems to play itself.

I know more than one person can play at once in the battles, however I didn't try that out (i had too much fun controlling everything)

The game brings back memories of final fantasy vii in the emotions received from the story.

Definitely pick this up and play it, it's worth every penny.

Why is this thread turning into an Eternal Sonata review page? :lol:

Well, I don't have much to add since almost everything has been said.

The local multiplayer is more like a bonus, you don't really use it much but it's still fun to play once in a while.

I played mostly solo, but sometimes a friend or two would team up with me. It's pretty fun, until they pick the healers and refuse to heal, etc.

Thanks. Someone took Fire Emblem Awakening, but SoulSilver (A): http://www.amazon.co...6707249&sr=1-47

and a HeartGold (LN) are in stock: http://www.amazon.co...6707249&sr=1-45


I still don't have a clue why that SoulSilver costs more than the HeartGold.

Wow what a restock.

I ended up splurging on a ridiculous amount of games.

Hopefully they all arrive in the description they were given as I've had really bad luck with the warehouse this year. *crosses fingers*

Still a lot of stuff left in stock but I really have to limit my spending.:cold:
