Star Ocean: The Last Hope Finally PS3 Bound?

Star Ocean: The Last Hope was a good get for Microsoft, moving more than 420,000 copies on the Xbox 360, managing to become the bestselling Xbox 360 game in Japan. That game may also be coming to the PlayStation 3.

According to a listing from online retailer and rental service Gamefly, a PlayStation 3 port of Star Ocean: The Last Hope is on its way. The date is still "TBD" and Square Enix hasn't announced said port—it wasn't on the list of titles the company planned to show at Gamescom—so we're taking it with a grain of salt.

On the other hand, Microsoft's window of exclusivity for the newest Star Ocean game could be winding down soon. Plus, Gamefly's pretty accurate about leaking unannounced titles. If a PlayStation 3 release is planned, it wouldn't surprise us one bit.

We've asked Square Enix what the deal is with the PS3 version, but haven't yet heard back.

    Brief comment: The response from most of Neogaf is that, PS3 owners (amongst the JRPG enthusiasts anyway) don't want this game unless it has Japanese voice support. The game is guaranteed to sell abysmally in all areas outside of Japan.

    Just as expected, xbox360 gets the prototype and ps3 gets the finished version. Im glad i stuck to my ps3

      Ha sure. Like the version of Bioshock that came out over a year after the 360 version and it wasn't even in HD.

      Face it, the PS3 cannot handle 360 ports very well. Same can't be said for 360 handling PS3 ports. The Force Unleashed was built on th3 PS3, and in this particular case, the 360 port ended up being than the original! haha.

      But if it makes you feel better to make up crap to justify spending your dollars on an overpriced Blu-Ray player, then go ahead.

        Am I the only one that's not impressed with this 360 fanboy?

    the translation wasn't that bad... sure I only played 20~ or so on my friends 360; I've heard worse dubs and I guess it was pretty cheezy at points but in general it was a OK.
    I'd buy it if it where to come to PS3 :D (and I'd buy a PS3 to go along with it :D)

    I haven't touch SO since part 3... which I was deeply disappointed in, so I doubt I'll pick up SO4

    I have to add this, the SO1&2 port on PSP is rip off (too expensive), that's why I'm not getting those 2 games also.

    God fucking damn it. I should have seen this coming. Should have just bought Lost Odyssey and played that while waiting to see if anything got announced, but no...
