BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma skipping Xbox 360 due to DVD size

The next BlazBlue game, Chrono Phantasma, is coming to PS3 on March 25th and Vita this summer. But why is there no Xbox 360 release? According to producer Toshimichi Mori, it's because of the limited space afforded by DVD.

"Chrono Phantasma doesn't fit on the disc," he said. "Basically, if you were to fit it on a disc you would have to compress it and the quality will go down and I was concerned that it would be an inferior version."

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- goes gloriously 3D

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- goes gloriously 3D

Fighting games held onto sprites longer than many other genres, but they too eventually began shifting into 3D and some of their charm was lost in the process. Sure, Street Fighter 4 looks pretty, but it's not quite the same. After fifteen years of sprites, Guilty Gear is finally going 3D with Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- and oh my! it emulates that sprite-y style magnificently in the Unreal Engine.

Persona 4 Arena is the first region-locked PS3 game

Persona 4 Arena is the first region-locked PS3 game

PlayStation 3 has been the import gamer's console of choice this generation, thanks to its lack of region-free games. Whether you're a US gamer looking to play Japanese games, or a gamer that owns a snazzy Japan-only special edition console, you knew that any game from any region would play in your system.

Of course, someone had to screw that up. Surprisingly, it's Atlus. Persona 4 Arena is the first region-locked game on the console.
