Valkyrie Profile 3 Exclusive To PS3?
You may recall the original Valkyrie Profile for the first PlayStation, and then Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria for the PS2. So would it make any sense at all that the third title would be exclusive to the Xbox 360...?
Perhaps not, but that was the rumor last month. Now, it appears the rumor has switched and that the original source behind it - GoFanboy - "got their wires crossed." They now say that Valkyrie Profile 3 will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3, which certainly makes more sense but still has to be taken with a grain of salt. They refer to one of the two mysterious "world exclusive" announcements PSM3 has slated for next month, so perhaps all of this will be cleared up in only a few weeks time. And if VP3 is confirmed as a PS3 exclusive, thereby continuing a series that is beloved by critics and RPG aficionados alike, that will add more fuel to Sony's upcoming exclusive lineup that now includes inFamous 2, Gran Turismo 5, The Last Guardian, LittleBigPlanet 2, and Killzone 3. The question is, are there enough of you who remember the VPs from yesteryear? How many would be totally psyched at a third, and how many would just sort of go, "Valkyrie what now?" If you're unfamiliar, we urge you to find a copy of Silmeria somewhere, especially if you're a JRPG buff.
For now, we can only hope that the third installment will indeed come to the PS3; having it be exclusive to the Xbox 360 would be just mind-bogglingly bizarre.
