PSXE Poll Update: Most Wanted RPG Is White Knight Chronicles
We've been all kinds of excited about the upcoming PlayStation 3 RPGs, and we wanted to know: outside of Final Fantasy XIII, what was your most anticipated title?
Well, despite falling off the radar for a while, Level 5's White Knight Chronicles wins by a significant amount; nearly doubling the vote total for the runner-up, Demon's Souls. WKC will be headed to North America some time early next year, and it sports a dynamic combat mechanic plus a definite incentive to test out the online multiplayer. As your avatar will explore both the single-player campaign and the multiplayer scenarios, he will be able to use any acquired equipment and items in either mode. The full customization of your character lends a bit of Western-oriented freedom to the standard JRPG genre, and the battle is what they call a cross between turn-based and action. Of course, Demon's Souls will get here much earlier - it's slated to launch on October 6 - and has already received rave reviews. Perhaps surprisingly, The Agency just topped Bioware's Dragon Age: Origins for third place, and we'll definitely provide you with more info from SOE as it becomes available.
Now, we turn our attention to a current event that has been capturing headlines everywhere: the rumored release date of Gran Turismo 5. Amazon lists it as December 29, but GTPlanet says it should launch even earlier. So when do you think it'll arrive? Do you buy this recent info, or do you still believe it won't hit shelves until 2010? Vote now!
