Anybody played this? recently bought it and watched the video of cutscenes from the first game which took 5 hours. because i heard from the guy in the shop the first one only came out in japan i had to watch it first. i looked on gamefaqs but i couldnt see a eu release date for xenosaga 3. is it only jp and us only??

A ps2 game which needs 2 disks. must be long.......

There's no scheduled European release date for XS3, but that doesn't mean it won't happen sometime in the future.

XS2 was released in Europe eight months after its stateside release. We've obviously passed that point a long time ago, but who knows? The day may yet come.

I have the DS version of 1 and 2, but I reckon I should probably get the PS2 version of the series as well. Something to add to the plate. (I actually have a fair-sized stack of PS2 games, but I have yet to buy a PS2. ^_^; )

Is it anywhere near as awesome as Xenogears?? When I first heard about the Xeno-prequels I was pretty excited but after hearing about all the changes they were making I kind of lost interest :(

In Japan, yeah. XS I and II on a single cartridge. Obviously, none of the bells and whistles of the PS2 version. It has isometric sprite-based graphics. I've only dabbled with the tutorial, so I can't comment on it in any depth. Once I'm done with FE10 and Mother 3, I might give it a proper spin. (If FE3 doesn't draw me in first.)

Surely you weren't expecting anything different from a Japanese RPG.

Only if you're wanting a good laugh. Engrish isn't good for much else. (Then again, given the quality of translation by most localizers, I guess it's not all that different which side of the pond they attempt the cross into English.)
