This was an issue from localization last year. Like Star Ocean, SAO and Tales of Berseria. I think they would have still had great sales.

The people who still buy PS3 games are probably mostly those who struggle to justify the cost of $60 games, a PS4 or gaming PC. I don't think they would have sold well.

People still playing the PS3 probably do so because of backlogs and that it is incredible value compared to buying a next gen device, both in hardware and the abundance of super cheap games. They do not buy $60 games, in general. They buy used cheap games and cheap Flash Sale games. Square Enix and Bamco want your $60, not your $3 in a Flash Sale 5 years from now or nothing from a used Gamestop sale.

Some of those "cheap" games are still brand new like WWE 2K17 that went on sale. Its still brand new just its marked down thats all.

Man I still play GG xard with people on PS4, if you ask me, more games should of done this like GTA5 as not everyone wants to buy a PS4, I still got very little reason to get a PS4 ever since I got a gaming PC

Honestly it would of been a better move for the industry but they could care less, this is why I can't get back into consoles anymore, they are in their own weird space right now that I don't like

It amazes me that Grand Theft Auto V you can get it cheaper for the X box consoles while GTA V is still 30ish bucks in stores while I can find Grand Theft Auto IV dirt cheap at a Gamestop store.

That and the GTA San Andreas Playstation 3 version at Walmart at 19.99 bucks or lower

It's just very inconvenient to even buy a PS4 for the games that had PS3 versions in Japan, they should have localized these final titles.

They're not interested in peoples convenience they're a business they're interested in money. They simply wouldn't have sold enough to justify the cost involved

Yah don't get me started on this, they have zero reason not to put them on the PSN store, no physical copies to sell, no advertisements, and they would definitely get the translation costs budget back + profit
