Images and video for Disgaea 3

The return of the modern king in the role-playing strategy genre (SRPG) is awaited on the Playstation 3 with Disgaea 3. Developer Nippon Ichi is being conservative in the graphics department, which is still a skilful mix of traditional 2D and 3D. Discover some images of the game and a recent trailer (sorry for size).

I wouldn't mind a game with this art style on PS3, but it's so obvious they're not even going to use that extra power.

Ok, so it's a waste because it does not look like today's games in terms of jaw-dropping material? Disgaea is deep, you should play it, even on PS3.

Atleast this game is coming out on the PS3 and thier not doing a cop out Capcom "It costs to much monies so we put it on the Wii" bullshit

for a ps3 game, yeah its definately a waste, not only does it look like a clasic DL game, but c'mon? why put this game on PS3 and not PS2 or psp or DS..why PS3? its a waste of what could be a good game that no one will play, and isnt making any use of the system its on.

I know at least Japan will play it. A lot.

Why isn't this just a Wii or PSP game? I've got a few theories, and they don't involve Cell, Blu-ray, or SIXAXIS.

I agree, a waste--especially considering that a PS2 is more than capable of better presentation, unless the gameplay videos sure to come blow us away...

Disgaea is a hit even outside of Japan so it's defectively gonna cost them quite a bit to release it to PS3 only, Here is one customer who won't buy it as I won't be able to afford an PS3 for quiiiiite a while.

Graphic wise this game was good enough already on PS2, looked clean and so on.

Or at least they should port it to multiple platforms at least.

This is the perfect game for PSP. Games that were big on the PS2 but don't need the power of the PS3 should just move to the PSP. Unfortunately I'm about $600 away from playing this game. Thanks Nippon Ichi.

I think it's pretty awesome personally.. though I guess it could have very well been a PS2 game and attracted a bigger audience. But then again, maybe this helps market the platform to die-hard SRPG fans.. so in that sense, it's not a waste at all.

at people are being honest and admitting they can't afford to play it, i don't mind the look, i'm sure the sprites will be high res and i expect they're going utilize the PS3 in other ways..if there is ANY form of online versus/co-op,NIS addicts like myself will pee themselves..i expect there to be more extras than 10 games in this genre combined..this is a nice gift to those who saved/borrowed and got a PS3..i trust NIS, they will make this worth the wait..

If i had a ps3 (wont till next xmas) i would get this.

I'm a little disappointed, I mean look at those sprites ... with ps3 they could at least have gone with odin sphere-esque resolutions ... Not saying they're lazy or anything, I just hoped for a little evolution from disgaea 2 ...

Yeah, but I'd say it's signs of being lazy though. I mean, this is next-gen. If PS2 games can look like Odin Sphere with sprites, you'd expect PS3 games to be able to easily match that.

I agree, waste of time on the PS3, the Wii would have been a much better bet.

While I agree that Wii would make sense, or even more the PSP, there's something to be said for a continued fan base of a platform. I mean a certain franchise might very well be a better fit for another platform, but that's not where its audience is at. Disgaea is a pretty obscure RPG unless you're an RPG fan (and even then it's totally weird) so venturing outside of its beaten fan-path is prolly just asking for trouble.

It's somewhat encouraging to see, also, that they're starting to move games over to the PS3. Say what you want about the way MS farted in the face of Xbox users, but they got games moved over to the 360 really early, which also encouraged people to get one - subsequently jumpstarting it as a viable platform. Granted it resulted in high res PS2 games in a lot of cases, but there are advantages to that aswell. We got achievements in Dynasty Warriors. :D

Anyhoo, if you're a Sony/Playstation gamer having bought a PS3 it isn't really a huge comfort to have games on the PS2 instead with all of its image quality problems and lack of robust online features, even though the system could handle it. You don't wanna pay PS3 style prices for a game like this of course, but having it play perfectly and being tailored for the console that is the centerpiece in your A/V setup is actually pretty nice. The whole "make it a backwards compatible PS2 game!" is just as flawed an argument as it was with Xbox games on the 360. I dunno about you, but half of the games supposedly "backwards compatible" I wouldn't even consider plays in their original form. Sound issues, framerate issues, borders, non-vga play, gimped online features, et cetera.


In addition, I think it's worrying if games like this aren't allowed to come out on high end systems, because that'd ultimately mean there's no place for them at all. I keep hearing people say that the Wii is stupid because the tech in it is weak, and that games could be cheap/basic and come out even on a more powerful system... but that's not the reality at all. If we want all sorts of companies, small and big, to be able to bring forth their ideas we can't realistically expect everything to look like Gears of War. And unless we want to keep our Dreamcast around for games that *could've been done on that system* then we'd end up with a fuck-sized pile of consoles under our tellies. While that's basically a reality for me already, I sincerely don't see the advantage of that.

I'm all for digital distribution by the way, if you're of the PSN angle, but the truth is that not everyone is. Sometimes with good reason. There's little about digital content that feels entirely future proof, and to some it just won't be the same to pay for something as intangible as a downloadable game.
