I will not allow Sega to pat themselves on the back until 3, 4, 5 are confirmed for the west, and more importantly, confirmed to be getting physical disc releases.  I could totally see them backtracking and going digital-only for some  if not all of 3-5.  Especially if say sales were poor for either Kiwami 2 or Yakuza 3.

My PS3 picks would be:

 

Eiyuu Senki: The World Conquest

Girl Fight

Legasista

Bloodrayne Betrayal

I think the first Agarest War game is only digital on PS3 in NA, too right? But with it already being physical on 360 it's less enticing.

Another PS3 game that has gone up in value is Yakuza 3.  But for the most part the market is pretty weak for the PS3.  Even some of the better RPG's are still pretty cheap.

 

As far as what to release?  I completed my PS3 collection more than a year ago.  Since then I picked up the Chronicles of Riddick (has both games on the disc)... and that's about it.  The only thing I haven't picked up is Way of the Samurai 4, which has a EU release in physical form.  Still, it's typically $30 for a new copy shipped in the USA.  Still, if they did the NA version on disc... for the same price... I'd probably seriously consider that... though I really need to play some of Way of the Samurai 3 to be 100% sure the series is for me.

 

 

Aren't both the PS3 & PS4 using the same disc(blu-ray)? I figured so long as Sony is producing PS4 titles, they can continue to offer PS3 ones as well. But I could be wrong in regards to the disc being the same, as I don't have a PS4 so not to familiar with things in regards to that system.

Not all BR's are the same.  The base technoly is, but the disc encryption and the encoded barcodes and stuff are different.  Plus they have a nice PS3 logo burned into them. From what I read, the discs are manufactured with some of the encryption actually in the form of defects unique to the disc.   It's highly possible the discs are infact slightly different.  I looked at a few discs last night for both systems and you can kind of see the defect in certain light and all the actual obvious differences around the center ring on the bottom.  I'd imagine the blanks (even if they are unique) can be used on the same manufacturing platform as PS4 stuff.

 

The other thing beyond the discs are the BR disc boxes and box art.  The PS3 boxes are somewhat unique in the BR world.  The logo is pretty much inset and off to the top right corner of the front, the boxes are mostly clear for later released games, and the box art is cut down smaller than the PS4 boxes (and in line with BR movie art size).  So art would require different paper, or more likely a separate cutting process than the PS4 art.

 

In the end they would likely need the PS3 specific blanks with the encoding on them, the ps3 specific br boxes, and then they would need to retool for the art or print it separately.   I'd imagine the art is probably not that big a deal.  They probably print that outside of the facility where actual product assembly is done, but the supply of blank PS3 discs and boxes is where a hiccup could happen which would result in new stock having to be created.  IF Sony is sitting on a bunch of old stock though, then this may be a blessing to them.  My guess is, if they have any old stock it's likely not enough for a full retail release.

TBQH, the PS3 was a shit system, with it's continuous online updates and installs.  If you didn't play it daily, every time you turned it on to play a game there would be some brand new 30minute install. It's no wonder the xbox 360 gained such traction during that cycle. :puke:

Completely agree with you on that point but Sony pumped out some fantastic games for it. And even for third party games, which often ran worse, I ended up getting on PS3 bc I had issues with my 360s. By the time they released the S model, I pretty much fully moved on.

Yeah, I dodged the bullet on the RROD, as I had an extended warranty for my 360 at BB, and as soon as the slim came out, I traded in my 360 for the slim. BB warranty was another great thing that went the way of the DoDo, but it was awesome while it lasted.

 

For the reasons mentioned, is why I never touch my PS3 much, as the updates are beyond  Fuck ing insane. I have to plan a day ahead if I want to play, so that way I can do all the updates and charge the controller before hand. LOL I do agree it had some great games, many of which I still plan to play at some point. And does any one know if CFW can improve the PS3's issues?

Just got an email for a 10% discount on Night Trap Switch.

If you bought the PS4 version, keep a lookout for the email.

Really great idea to incentivize double dipping since a lot of people will be. Hopefully you can retroactively apply this to your order if you already placed it

My first 360 RRODed while under warranty. My replacement RRODed out of warranty, so I bought a new one (back when the original model was the only model). But I upgraded to the slim as soon as it was released.

 

OG 360 build was crap, but damn the games were amazing.

Disc versions of After Burner Climax and Daytona USA on the PS3 would be awesome. I would also buy Eufloria if it got released too. That game was very chill, but addicting as well.

Generally speaking, how responsive is LRG to support tickets? I'm trying to change my email on file and I've been waiting a couple of days now for a response. I just want to make sure I don't get any pre-orders squashed or get a ban by changing my email. Should I message them on twitter or social media?

For me personally, its been one day max before they got back to me.  I probably opened 3 tickets overall over the last 2 years though, so fairly small sample size.

Yeah, I got the same email.  It makes me wonder if maybe they aren't selling as many copies that they are trying to temp folks with a double-dipper-discount like this.  Whatever the case, not a game I really need to own another copy of and my intent with the PS4 version is to play it and then sell it on so it'll be more of a rental experience where maybe I just break even or it only costs me a few bucks for the experience.

 

Whoa I have a copy of Yakuza 3!  Why did it go up in value so much?

I think it's a simple case of supply and demand.  I think the original production run for North America may have been on the small side. So even with the reprint early last year, the game is still on the more rare side and fewer people are keen to sell it off.

Don’t plan on it anytime soon considering they have a tendency to announce what the CE consist of the week of release.
