308w ago - If you're a European detective, you might have discovered that the German software ratings board (USK) is listing every game to appear at the upcoming Leipzig Games Convention.

At least, most of them. This can result in some lovely new game titles, possibly spoiling certain publisher's announcements.

It is developed by Sony, hence it will be a PS3 exclusive and is described as residing within the military genre and carries a 12 rating.

Props go to VicViper from NeoGAF (linked above) for pointing this out.
 

Live Demo: Valkyria Chronicles, PS3 Exclusive SRPG

50°
312w ago - Per Jeff Rubenstein (Social Media Manager) via PS Blog today: E3 may now be over, but the games shown off at the event will be a part of our lives throughout this holiday season and beyond. One title that will occupy the lives of PLAYSTATION 3 owners for hours upon hours this fall is Valkyria Chronicles. This PS3-exclusive strategy-JRPG from Sega (to clarify, NOT a PSP game), is utilizing the power of the console to push its dynamic and visually arresting Canvas Engine.

The graphics in Valkyria Chronicles appear similar to an animated watercolor painting, with a bit of the colored-pencil-sketch action seen A-ha's 1980's "Take On Me" video. As you'll see in the video below - it really works.





Speaking of the video, it features Sega Associate Producer Christopher Kaminski detailing the unique battle system found in Valkyria Chronicles - it completely takes the Strategy RPG genre "off the grid."

We'll have more on Valkyria Chronicles here on the PlayStation.Blog as we near its November release date.

Final Fantasy XIII no longer a PS3 Exclusive!

700°
312w ago - The announcement was made earlier today that FFXIII is coming out on Xbox 360 too. In fact, it'll be a simultaneous release on both PS3 and Xbox 360 for US and Europe. Today's Square Enix E3 press conference clarified a few details.

First: Final Fantasy XIII is still a PS3-exclusive... at least in Japan. According to Kotaku, Square Enix exec Shinji Hashimoto told reporters: "I think you are right [in assuming that (the Xbox 360 version) is not coming out in Japan.]" It will only appear on Xbox 360 in English-speaking territories.

In addition, Final Fantasy XIII will release in Japan first -- and then will be localized for the international audience. That means Japanese gamers will enjoy FFXIII on PS3 long before the rest of the world will see it go multiplatform.

Hashimoto says that the Xbox 360's large install base in English territories is what led to the decision to make the game multiplatform. Because the decision was recent, there's no way of estimating how many discs the Xbox 360 version will be.

Also, Final Fantasy Versus XIII is still in development as a PS3 exclusive.
