    One of my favorite series and an expensive console. I'll be missing out on Disgaea 3 for a long time.

    I can't wait. It seems Nippon Ichi has officially chosen the PS3 over 360 (not a big surprise).

    #2 wasn't interesting enough to make me even remotely consider buying a PS3 to play #3. Maybe years down the road.

    Dang it. A game that will make me seriously consider picking up a PS3.

    The main question is, if the game still operates on the basic 2D sprite principle, why bother making it for the PS3? The technology of the PS3 is flatout unnecessary, and there are millions more PS2 owners out there.

    I'm pretty sure since it is going to be on PS3, the sprites will be shown in full HD. Also having it be on the blue-ray disk can offer more game content and dialouge.

    Well, they said the backgrounds will be rendered in HD, which would be nice; albeit unnecessary. Pixelated 2D sprites in HD just seems pointless.

    The larger capacity of blu-ray is relatively unnecessary as well. Disgaea 2 doesn't even use a dual-layer DVD. 8.5GB should be *plenty* of space for everything in non-HD mode.

    I'm just afraid that releasing such a niche game on a console with such a small install base would be dooming the game before it even got launched.

    while this is a good point, you gotta think that Sony is probably giving them a good chunk to put a game like that on thier system because they want thier new system to appeal to the same audiences that the PS2 has, which still seems to be doing well with all the niche games comming to it.

    I don't think Sony is giving anybody money for exclusives at this point. It's no surprise that the PS3 is going to get the majority of traditional JRPG's this generation. If for no other reason than the failure of the 360 in Japan. In time, I'm sure we'll start seeing quite a few JRPG's on the Wii as well.

    13 MONTH BUMP

    Just got my signed copy of the Double Jump strategy guide today. Disgaea 3 comes out in less than 2 weeks. This is game is going to be great. Anyone else buying this on day 1?

    Default hmmm...

    I don't think this will remain exclusive to the PS3, but we'll see.

    Too Human(360) comes out the week before Mercenaries 2, and Infinite undiscovery come out the week after (so it looks). Tales of Vesperia (360), STALKER Clear Sky (PC), and Vampire Rain, and I think Ratchet And Clank expansion come out the same week. Ultimately it looks like Disgaea 3 will be a tough choice amongst those others.

    I only include Vampire Rain because it is supposedly releasing at $39.99...

    Right now this and MGS 4 are the only reasons I want a PS3, so I'm hoping it does, indeed, go cross-platform. Really though I'm still content with the original, I haven't even played 2 yet.

    I ordered the $90 bundle of Disgaea 3 over at rosenqueen.com and essentially bought a PS3 for it, so yeah, I'm excited.

    I'll mail you a box of used medical gauze and navel lint for twenty bucks. That's not only cheaper, but more fun than Vampire Rain.

    I'm picking up Disgaea 3 myself, though god only knows when I'll find time to play it. It looks pretty good from the videos I've seen.

    That's because it was. It was originally intended to be released for the PS2, but was changed to PS3 mid-development. This is part of the reason Nippon Ichi is only charging $49.99 as opposed to $59.99.

    Do NOT buy Vampire Rain, it is by far one of the worst games I've ever had the unfortune to play!

    It seems that Disgaea 3 is not heading for a PAL release, so I'll propably pick this up on import. Thankfully the PS3 has no region protection
