    The 3rd Birthday, the PSP action-RPG entry in Square Enix's Parasite Eve series, comes to North America on March 29, 2011. Yvonne Strahovski (Mass Effect 2's Miranda) will voice series heroine Aya Brea.

    Small news article but the point is that T3B should be hitting in English soon.

    Still haven't played the original Parasite Eve games but I guess I should in preparation.

    PR:
    Strangely they make no mention of Lightning's Aya costume for Dissidia 012, which we at least know is coming with the EU Twisted version, or a PSN release.

    Not in Japan. And since SE is a Japanese developer...
    *crosses fingers that this doesn't become a PSP hate thread full of ignorant DS fanboys! Or fanboys of any other platform. OR people begging for ports to other platforms*

    They wanted it on a portable and I doubt any other system could handle it outside of maybe iPads or newer iPhones/iPod Touches. But given the game's power requirements (supposedly it'll be the most power-hungry PSP game to date and odds are will have the most advanced graphics, I'll let Goli give a real answer to that question though since I assume that he's played it) and the requirements for buttons (who would want to have all those buttons on a touchscreen?), the PSP is the best choice.

    And it's not dead yet, probably has more coming to it than the DS I'd say. But as Goli said, let's not make this into a PSP debate thread.

    The game engine was built for PS3/360 but then modified for PSP.

    At least that is what Goli said to me.
    I could of read it wrong but....
    Let's just wait for Goli

    Yes, developer HexaDrive was approached by SE to develop the game, but they thought they wanted to do an HD game, so they built an engine suited for it, after SE told it was for PSP the engine was modified.
    Honestly, if we're talking about handhelds only, it could only be done on PSP, and now, NGP. Sure the iPad/Phone/Pod Touch 4G could probably render the game, but play it? on a touch screen only? It would require some really drastic modifications.

    March is gonna be devastating to my bank balance. Just off the top of my head...

    - 3DS and at least a couple of games. That's a good £300 gone right there.

    - Dissidia Duodecim. Another £30

    - 3rd Birthday, another £30

    - Dragon Age 2, at least another £40

    - Rent, another £200

    - Food, At least another £40

    - Taking my lady friend out to dinner, fuck knows, depends where to and how often.

    - Flowers, chocolates, etc for aforementioned lady friend, again cost unknown, depends on what chocolates I get her, I guess.

    Looks like I'm working extra shifts for a while [​IMG]

    This game seems very interesting. But the lack of a PSP will keep me from enjoying this title.

    I pre-ordered the twisted edition for about £23, so you'll probably be able to get the regular edition cheaper if you're not interested in the art book.

    edit: I don't think its coming out in March in europe anyway.
