Are you kidding me?

How come this one gets retail without any problem but Oreshika is still marked as digital only for EU?

    Nazar_Ops 6 October, 2014 @ 12:52 pm    

    Xdev is an European developer, so it’s obviously easier for them to do retail releases.

    loadstone007s 6 October, 2014 @ 12:56 pm    

    Because kids need to see a game they love in order to justify a Vita purchase.

    Invizimals is apparently hugely popular in Spain, where it performs extremely well. A physical release makes sense, especially since it’s geared towards children and will have more visibility in its intended audience with a physical release.

    Oreshika on the other hand is incredibly niche and part of a series that has never seen a Western release before. I wouldn’t hold your breath for a physical copy of Oreshika. I’m not saying it’s impossible, but Oreshika isn’t even as popular as Freedom Wars, which is already an extremely niche game.

    @Nazar_Ops
    Xdev is European developer but the one publishing games is Sony Computer Enterteiment Europe (the same subject that is responsible for publishing Freedom Wars and Oreshika in Europe)

    So your argument is kinda invalid.

    @loadstone007s
    Oh don’t get me wrong I know that. But still if they have money to release game like this (+in every EU language) they should have money to release other games.

    @madmanwithabox12
    Invizimals: The Alliance sold only around 20k copies… and that’s not only in Spain but in whole SCEE region. So I’m not sure if “performs extremely well” is the right wording.

    Oreshika and Freedom Wars are NOT niche games. Games like I dunno… Senran Kagura, Demon Gaze, Conception 2, Bullet Girls are. But Oreshika? It is classic jRPG… or are you also calling Final Fantasy and Tales of series niche just because those were cretaed in JP @@

    Freedom Wars? Niche? So you also think that Monster Hunter, Toukiden, God Eater, Soul Sacrifice are niche right? Freedom Wars with right advertising had a chance to become big titles for Vita… well it still is! But this game nearly doesn’t exist for SCEE. There are no new articles about the game and we still don’t know what Panopticons there will be.

    If I’m not mistaken I told you already the same thing during the time when we were asking for retail Freedom Wars. Ow well… some people never change

    HomessaHomem 6 October, 2014 @ 2:02 pm    

    This sells a lot in my country.

     
    madmanwithabox12 6 October, 2014 @ 2:23 pm    

    For goodness’ sake Archacus, grow up. Stop thinking I’m just trying to argue with you.

    You don’t understand the meaning of the word “niche” at all. It means something with a small but dedicated audience, like the Vita itself. By extension it’s fair to say that all of Vita’s exclusives are niche titles at this point, with the exception of some of the earlier titles like Uncharted and LBP.

    Of course Tales is a niche series, it historically sells very poorly in the West despite a dedicated fan base. Tales is practically the definition of a niche series. Freedom Wars will sell poorly. Oreshika will sell even worse. It’s not a matter of me being negative. It’s a matter of fact. Freedom Wars barely has any resonance outside of Japan, first and foremost because it’s a Vita exclusive. Oreshika is even less known than Freedom Wars, it will sell worse than Freedom Wars. These are niche titles.

    Stop putting words in my mouth too, it’s not very nice.

    Archacus 6 October, 2014 @ 3:12 pm    

    @madmanwithabox12
    Oh starting with “grow up/you don’t understand”? Huh… sorry I won’t bother to argue with you on level of a kid.

    Fair enough, so if all Vita exclusives are niche games so that means that Invizimals is also niche game. (logic) And well as it sold only 20,000 physical copies I think we can agree that it indeed sold poorly. But wait… you did say that “on the other hand” Oreshika is “incredibly niche”… hmm… doesn’t make much sense to me. You clearly meant that Invizimals are not niche game, otherwise you wouldn’t say “on the other hand” (logic).

    Do you truly think that Freedom Wars or Oreshika will sell worse than Invizimals or Vita Pets? It’s matter of simple question? Yes or no.

    If you agree with that, than maybe you are right that there wouldn’t be any point in releasing other games. But I can’t see it, even not so good Soul Sacrifice sold about 70k copies. So if it viable to release game with retail version for around 20k customers than it should also make sense to release it for 30k or 100k? Am I right? Or do you think that both of those games will sell less than 20k copies.

    Tales games sells around 160,000 copies on PS3… that’s rather… big group of customers, kinda too big to be called niche game. Lost Planet, Tony Hawk, NHL, Dead Island Riptide, Destiny, Remember Me… and many more (just to name a few) sold worse than Tales games… So is tales series really a niche? Sure, if you are stubborn you can name ever game niche. But it doesn’t make much sense. After all number of sold copies can clearly say which titles deserve to be called niche and which doesn’t. Simple as that.

    It’s funny, you’re calling me a kid yet you’re the one being rude and childish. You’re the one whose first comment is just straight up rude to the developers of this game because of some petty fascination with physical game releases. It’s also funny you say you’re not going to argue with me, then you proceed to argue with me. You’re the one putting words in my mouth and claiming I’m saying things that I’m not. You’re the one who got an answer from four different people, yet still continue to argue.

    Fred Dutton 6 October, 2014 @ 4:20 pm    

    Folks, let’s keep it friendly please – this conversation really isn’t going anywhere. Name-calling on here will not be tolerated. Thank you.

     
    madmanwithabox12 6 October, 2014 @ 4:42 pm    

    Apologies Fred, didn’t mean for things to get out of hand.

    solarwind12 6 October, 2014 @ 5:09 pm    

    Fred i disagree, i know this is a ‘family blog’ but that does not mean it is for kids, you telling two adults with good/funny/constructive posts to stop arguing/name calling is uncalled for.. wouldn’t be so bad if this blog hadn’t been changed to look like a kids toyshop window, with almost zero interaction getting returned from anyone, now you want two of our best contributors to change/stop as well.. am sure there capable of being as friendly as unfriendly with each other without a stern slap on wrist, reminded of school for a sec there.

    Archacus 6 October, 2014 @ 5:51 pm    

    @Fred
    Hmmm, Fred do you think it would be possible to make something like “Freedom Wars week” before release? I mean new articles about Freedom Wars each day just to get more spotlight for a great game. It is really great title, so please advertise it! You can write every day nice article with screenshots/gifs/videos about random topics.

    For example
    Day-1 – plot
    Day-2 – characters/character making
    Day-3 – Panopticons
    Day-4 – weapons
    Day-5 – enemies
    Day-6 – crafting
    Day-7 – online modes

    Please! Freedom Wars is a great game! But it deserves more spotlight! @madmanwithabox12 said that it has little resonance outside of Japan, I don’t if it is true, but more spotlight definitely could help to make it even more popular.

    … and again… Oreshika… it is a high time to hear anything about it. I know that you can’t write anything unless developers send you some materials, but please ask them for something. More spotlight would probably resolve those unnecessary quarrels and we wouldn’t be considering if this or that title is niche or not.

    Please think it through.

Because kids need to see a game they love in order to justify a Vita purchase.

theo_andravida 6 October, 2014 @ 3:44 pm   3

The ps vita doesnt need more invisimals ot lego games. What it needs is some proper AAA games! What arent you understanding out of this? A lot of ps vita buyers have sold their vitas because you released a console and you bring mobile games , better or worse, and show it to us as somethink we should be grateful! -_- #4theidiots

     
    den_rick 6 October, 2014 @ 6:32 pm    

    Does pokemon or 3DS best games look like a AAA game? with HD graphics and etc? AAA games is not equal to great games with million of sales . -_-

     

    Lack of AAA games? Sure ill give you that.
    But calling them Phone games…

     
    fps_d0minat0r 6 October, 2014 @ 11:03 pm    

    @ xampage
    Most of them look like they could run on a NES. Calling them phone games is a complement.

    UK_Rocklance 7 October, 2014 @ 4:46 am    

    I don’t know why ppl think that Vita doesn’t have AAA games. If they give you so called AAA games like Resistance and Uncharted, you will say I can play those on the PS3, why do I want to play them on the Vita? What do you expect from AAA games on a handheld? Something with 10GB of HD cutscenes? (Good luck getting them to release that on physical media.)

    Games like Freedom War, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, Monster Monpiece, Demon Gaze, Conception II, Atelier Rorona Plus, Borderlands 2, FIFA 15 are all AAA, just to name a few recent ones. If those do not suit your taste, then too bad, but it has nothing to do with production budget (or whatever you define as AAA).

    Relatively speaking, Vita probably has more AAA/high budget games than the PS4, which is flooded with cheap ports of indies.

     
    madmanwithabox12 7 October, 2014 @ 9:33 am    

    I agree with UK_Rocklance. People complain about a lack of “AAA” games on Vita, then they don’t buy LBP. They don’t buy Killzone Mercenary. They don’t buy Tearaway. They probably won’t but Freedom Wars. And yet these same people whine about how Sony’s first party division no longer wants anything to do with Vita. If you aren’t buying what they give you, why should they continue to give you it? Seeing Tearaway’s pathetic sales was heartbreaking. A fantastic game by a very talented developer that was unfortunately wasted on the Vita “fan” base. =/

    Yet what’s even stupider is the people that keep attacking the indie games and telling them to go away. They’re pretty much 70% of what Vita is getting right now, if you took that away there’d be even less games to play. I don’t get the logic. >_<

    Archacus 7 October, 2014 @ 1:10 pm    

    Hmm… confusing.

    I get the feeling that people don’t really know what AAA means. And that’s the case for both sides, those who want AAA and those who are fine with things as they are now. UK_Rocklance is right saying that those are big budget games, but than again he is mistaken calling Atelier series, Demon Gaze, Monster Moonpiece etc. a AAA game.

    And @madmanwithabox12 you are mistaken about calling LBP or Tearaway a AAA title. Even LBP 3 by classification is not AAA title. But than again I’m not picking up a fight with you, ok? Like I said I find arguing boring.

    In fact Vita has very little AAA titles… Killzone definitly is AAA, Uncharted and Assasin Creed probably too. Freedom Wars… hmm… dunno, maybe? Or is it AA(+) game? Well unless developer show his cards we can’t really say for sure.

    But it’s also not true that Vita needs more AAA titles to live. And here is the essence of the problem 🙂 I think that people don’t realize that there are more categories than AAA or indies 🙂 There is whole world between them. There are AA-A-B titles (well as a matter of fact some people add + and – to each, for example Destiny and FF XV are AAA+ titles)

    Most jRPG are A or B games. That’s where Demon Gaze, Monster Moonpiece, Conception 2 fits perfectly. Those are hardly AAA titles, non of the game developed by Atlus or NIS are AAA games as a matter of fact.

    As @den_rick said Pokemons are hardly AAA games 🙂 Those games are really way cheaper to develop than games like Killzone or Assasins Creed.

    So yeah… we don’t really need AAA titles. It would be great to see few more of them, but I would be fine seeing only AA-A-B titles. That’s where handhelds really shine. Hmm… take a look at 3DS I highly doubt that there is any AAA game, and yet it do just fine right?

    And than again @madmanwithabox12 is right that people need to start buying those games. If anyone want to see some FF exclusive than he should buy Tales of Hearts R or Freedom Wars. If developers will see that they can earn on making games for Vita they would be more prone to make games. Simple as that. And Tearaway well… it’s specific title directed rather to younger audience. But still very good one.

 
Witcher70 6 October, 2014 @ 6:55 pm   4

Will pick this up. Will you be making any more PS4 Invizimals games?

 
DavisonACT 7 October, 2014 @ 11:34 am   5

Good to see more games for a younger audience and retail as well. We need to get kids in stores wanting Vita instead of 3DS and then the rest will follow.

The game looks nice, but those monsters…that’s plain ugly like hell, no wonder PokeMon wins all these wanna be’s. An eagle with horns of a deer?!

Jaigirdar12 29 October, 2014 @ 9:32 pm   7

the alliance is good and i know it so, the resistance is gonna be bigger, better an more epic!!!!

Wolfs-Bane-1994 31 October, 2014 @ 10:27 pm   8

Is this releasing in us to? Or are you going to wait forever to do that again. Then most people in us will have imported it all ready.
