ADF said:I see a PS3 thread cannot go uncriticised as usual, I'm planning on getting one but not in the short term due to the price. The reason? Believe it or not, even if you cannot tell now, Playstation consoles always get a wide range of games that never appear on any other system. I don't care about the big name titles that every system fight over, GTA? Final Fantasy? Devil May Cry? Bleh, not of my interest.
I like the niche titles, the ones that are never advertised so you have to find them through specialist web pages. Xengo Saga, Wild arms, Shin Megami Nocturne Tensei, Suikoden, Disgaea and other such games. So as you can imagine the whole argument that the PS3 doesn't have any games falls on uninterested ears, these games always appear on Playstation systems and I don't see it changing this generation.
When the PS3 is almost four million systems behind in third place, I see it changing, yeah. Niche tiltes tend to only to to the system with the largest or second largest install base. Konami and Atlus always have done that, it's why both put their 'niche' titles out on the DS instead of the PSP.
