[User Posted Image]Dragon Quest VII
Coming to Japan February 7th


Square-Enix released a debut trailer of the upcoming Dragon Quest VII, scheduled for a February 7th release exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. The remake of the PS1 game features 3D graphics, visible monster encounters, a litograph system and more! No word on a worldwide release, but Japanese fans will soon get their Slime-slaying fix!

Square Enix is on a roll! I bet this whole slew of SE games'll boost 3DS sales significantly, cause before that, what'd you have? Imagine 3D Hairdresser Wingz Clubz Iceskating Pony Babysitterz, Super Mario 3D and a remake of a remake of a game everybody's tired of playing (Ocarina of Time), and of which I'd be amazed anybody'd actually have finished it (I know I haven't...)

Yeah, I don't see the "appeal" of the 3DS just yet. Outside of RE:Revelations, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars and Sonic Generations 3DS, there's really noy much that draws me to the library just yet. That said, there's a few announcements now that I'm interested in.

Awesome! With all of the good looking announcements for 3ds coming in it sounds like Nintendo is trying to finish Sony off with that and the release of the Wii U before Sony has even announced a next-gen console to compete with it, and dropping the price on 3ds to the point where the Vita just can't compete. Gamestop is even offering new 3ds units for $139 now.

Err... Sony has releases coming up too, y'know, and the Vita sure as hell isn't lacking quality content, especially with PlayStation Plus... of course more is always welcome, but hey.

The head start may be good for Nintendo, but only if they step it up and build an interesting WiiU library, and currently it's not that great in my opinion. They need to get their ThinkTanks into fifth gear before the advent of the PS4 and the NextBox, they have one year not to become the next Dreamcast.

AT&T is offering PSVita's 3G/WiFi for $199, you can also snag a WiFi model for $179 with a memory card and two games, and good ones at that! I'd say they're equivalent "deals" at the moment.

And where is this exactly? I've been looking all over the place and the lowest I could find for a new WiFi Vita is $235 new and that's not a bundle either. Refurbished models are around $189 but considering how much use I got out of my PSP, I'm looking at new for sure.

Despite the fact that I want one, it isn't looking good for the Vita though. A rather large number of the more popular upcoming games are either delayed or MIA, added to the positively dismal Christmas sales numbers, if I were a developer I'd not even think twice about choosing 3ds over Vita.

Ugh, my bad - that deal had already ended - t'was a Black Friday thing and it was actually in pounds. :P The bundles that are now sold for $250 were sold for $200 during that time, I just got confused.

Except it's infinitely easier to develop games for the PSVita - it simply has more resources to offer, and that always equals less optimizing.

That, and "dismal" is debatable - Sony consoles are known to have high prices and slow beginnings until about half-way through their life-cycles - it was like that with the PS3, it was like it at the very beginning of the PS2's reign when it costed a gajizzilion of dollars and one soul and it's like that with the PSVita. I hear a lot of naysaying concerning the prices and the library and as a Vita owner, I just can't help but shake my head. In PS+ alone I got Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Mortal Kombat, Mutant Blobs, Chronovolt and some misc. titles, plus the ones every Vita owner gets for free anyways and I can't say that the console gathers dust - it's being constantly used and for the most part, the games are stellar. I'm willing to bet that if I were to own a 3DS, I'd already spend more money on games alone than I have with the PSVita so-far - it's good value when you think of it, and it only stacks up if you also have a PS3 on which you could claim games - clearly Sony's going for a brand loyalty scheme here and in my opinion, it's working.

You get what you pay for - it's a mirracle that the console isn't even more expensive given the fact that it has a GPU stronger than the 3rd Gen iPad's, it's one of the first mobile devices to use a quad-core ARM CPU, it has twice the RAM and half the VRAM of a PS3 and from a hardware point it eats the competition alive for breakfast. That, and we can't forget that at the end of the day, gaming is a luxury pass time - it was never cheap.

Now that PS+ rolled in which allows you to "acquire" several games as long as you're a subscriber, and a 3-months subscription costing as little as a single game, it's the best of times to get the system. It's a shame that you missed out on the Black Friday deal (which was really stellar - AC:Liberation + PSABR + Memory Card = System ready to rock) as it was really a steal - from my calculations, the system itself costed about $130 in it (cost of the bundle minus costs of the games and the card) if you plan on getting one, but there's no point in crying over spilled milk - I'm sure you'll have plenty of occasions to try it, Sony gave it a 10-year life expectancy and knowing the company, they'll C.P.R it as long as it takes.

But alas, I digress... Let's head straight back to the topic. :P

It's got a hot chick in bikini armour! I must play this!

And that dude with the girly hair and the red dress looks creepy.

Edit: TWO hot chicks in bikini armour! Double the bikini-clad chicks, double the fun of this game!

Being a huge fan of DQ, this is the best news ever. I have DQVII for PSX but it is way too slow in nowadays standards so I really haven't got into it, been waiting for remake instead. I knew they would remake DQVII, and luckily it is for 3DS. I love the new enhancements, like visible monsters and equipment. Maybe the game loses a bit of the "old" DQ charm, but I don't care as the game is now more fun to play. So, Dharma Temple, here I am once again.
