    Yep, PSP can kiss his sorry ass goodbye in Japan. While DQ is a big thing in west, it`s not THAT big thing as I would imagine it is for japanese. Anyway, I`m going to dance a couple of happy dances today, just because of these news!

    And it is not a spinn-off. It is the real DQ IX.

    I think SE loves the DS.

    My hopes of a next gen Dragon Quest IX just got WTF PWNED. My interest in the game just got cut in half. Not to say that it won't be a great game, just not as great as say if it were on PS3 :0 (loved DQ8 on the PS2)

    I've never heard of this series, but the graphics look VERY good for the DS.

    Does it play like Final Fantasy? Looks like that's the case.

    Wow, DS was the LAST thing I'd expected it to be on... But still, looks very promising. [​IMG]

    its a ridiculously popular rpg series in japan, and the fact the DS is getting the next installment of the series, and not the PS3 is a VERY huge blow to the PS3, sony lost thousands of sales from this announcement.

    edit-
    4 player online co-op btw

    Square-Enix loves the DS apparently because they just keep making game after game after game for it. The graphics look amazing.

    man, I was expecting the Wii, but the DS?!?!?

    AWESOME!

    I'm just glad I don't have to buy a PS3 for this one.

    EDIT: Seems they went towards an action RPG system, and 4 player Co-Op. WOW.

    I haven't played any DQ before and my first FF was FFIII DS, how do they compare? FFIII rocked my world, well 32hrs of it anyway =)

    DQ vs FF - same deal, different story?
