Square Enix have hosted another livestream for the next iteration of the Star Ocean franchise, “Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness,” giving an equal coverage to both the combat system and town exploration, contrasting unfavorably with another Square Enix title sorely lacking in one of those departments …

The livestream footage, which was recorded on December 11th:

Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness will begin its adventure on March 31st for PS3 and PS4, with its western launch slated for 2016.

    Square Enix don't make Star Ocean games, Tri Ace do, and every Star Ocean game has had towns.

    Love the weird ass designs of the characters. Wish the blue haired guy didn't look so generic, though.

    aside from the zero loading time combat system, everything looks the same. given that i've never bothered to beat a star ocean title because they become so repetitive, i'm not sure now much of that is a good thing.

    In third-world country, getting a job means you won't die from hunger and you could barely afford a house/appartment. You still struggle to afford more than one system.

    You mentioning that you have not "bothered" to beat a Star Ocean game just shows how much of a retard you are. Please refrain from making any more comments on subjects you don't even have sufficient knowledge in.

    Yeah whatever kiddo.

    SO1 = generic jrpg
    SO2 = ruined by shit voice acting
    SO3 = fell apart before even exiting the simulator
    SO4 = universally hailed as shit

    Clearly, the only retard around here is you, because everyone else all has the same complaints. I bet you even loved the FF13 series.

    Yea totally, EVERYONE on this comment section is hating it... NOT. No wonder you're retarded, you're blind as well and probably one of those fucking loser hipster nerds that hate on anything that is not FFVIII and consider everything else "generic". Vast majority of games that are "universally hailed as shit" are just from loudmouthed idiots like yourself. If you look at that actual vast majority those games did pretty well and are not hailed as shit like you try so hard to believe because you did not like the game. Finish a fucking game and look at actual reviews before you try to start talking shit that you have no clue about.

    X is made by a much better studio. Unfortunately, that studio is owned by Nintendo, so all their creations will auto-fail.

    The stream quality sucks, which makes XCX looks better.

    Nah, it's more a case of the Wii U having more system ram/video memory(Though a weaker processor) and can easily match the PS3 in terms of graphics.

    With that being said, Monolith Soft are just far superior at getting the most out of the hardware they use.

    Nothing stopping Tri-Ace from doing a story in 4D space. The 4D beings are far advanced than the Earthlings, and are human too.

    So you have this majestic looking town, and the only people in it are you, and a busty goddess who wouldn't look out of place in a porno?

    Come on, more townspeople please.

    Could just be testing without any non-party NPC. It is still a work in progress.

    You didn't respond to me, but if you follow the weekly sales updates for games in Japan, its all handheld games.

    Source? Virtually every news & sales site online. Besides which, I saw this coming a few years before the last generation ended.

    We're now two years into PS4 and in Japan PS4 has barely sole 2 million units. Which puts the system's total sales barely above xbox360. While Europe & America are on their way to reaching 13million a piece. If we looked at population figures, the United States has three times more people, so to have a user base at least equal Japan would have had to sell at least 4million units as to today.

    Right now they're around half. That's a major decline. And that decline can be found in sales figures multiple ways. This was merely one example. And example that in the PS1 & PS2 era would have matched evenly with US sales projections.

    While on the flip side, handheld sales have continued to rise. Now there are some retards that claim this is a 'fluke', but whatever. Pretty obvious that the real cause is the decline in birth rates.

    Right now Tokyo is claiming that they don't have any birthrate issues by touting that on average each woman is giving birth to a single child. So their logic is that children are being produced at a 1:1 ration, which in reality is untrue because it completely takes the male partner out of the equation and ignores that half of the population. As in 50% less children are being born now than were just a couple decades ago.

    Fifty percent? Now where did I hear that... Oh yeah, that matches the decline in Japan's console sales. Well fuck me.

    So yes, Japan's console market is in fact dead. Well, to be exact it's on life support. Japan knows it too, which is why as of late more than a few titles have come with Vita ports that aside from having downgraded textures look identical. And this is because they were always designed to Vita in mind, knowing that the PS4 version was never going to be a big seller.

    Just a reminder, this is a PS3 game that is also brought to PS4. Don't expect current-gen graphics.

    Just a reminder: average console cycle is 6 years. PS3 is 9 years old and it usually takes 4-5 years to make a JPRG, if what you said was even remotely true, SquareEnix would fire the entire team for gross incompetence. As everyone would be aware that we'd be deep into the next console cycle by the time it was ready to market, as a PS3 game. Don't make up stories that have no base, retard.

    It doesn't take 4-5 years to make a JRPG, that's the Square-Enix model of game making. Most niche studios, including Bandai Namco can do in 2-3, sometimes less.

    Retard, Tri-Ace IS part of Enix and always has been.

    Its funny when the game before this looked better than this does.

    And regardless nothing will ever best the 3rd one anyway.

    Except for the second one. The world actually being destroyed by the bad guys was a nice surprise. Especially after a play time when other game franchises would have just given you a an endboss to beat.

    Console wars is still on-going even into the near future, just that people are using indirect methods to attack their rivals. So your "poorboi" statement applies to both side.
