Katamari not named Beautiful coming to PS3


Namco got us all hot and bothered when it listed Beautiful Katamari heading to the PS3 on its website a few weeks ago. However, all hope of playing Beautiful Katamari was dashed when 1up confirmed with the game's director Jun Morikawa that the title will not be coming to Sony's console.

Wait! Don't jump off the bridge yet; all hope is not lost! Morikawa said "the series will definitely be making its way to the console soon," which is great news for the junk-collecting faithful.

So instead of getting just a port, we can now look forward to an entirely new entry in the series.

2. Hopefully they work on some entirely new gameplay to go along with it. Don't get me wrong, I loved this game.

The first couple times it came out.

5. "So instead of getting just a port, we can now look forward to an entirely new entry in the series."

Or maybe he's talking about in a year and a half when the next Katamari comes out on all systems.

7. I can't recall where but didn't we know this a few months ago already? I remember commenting as such on N4G in July...I thought it was here that I'd heard.

8. @3
this and Ace combat 6 is the only games i think can benifit from the sixaxis but in ace combat you should have the ability to use both athe same time, you know that little urge you get to move your controller in the direction you need to go, but with the ability to turn it off if you dont want it. AC6 is a timed exclusive(they said in an OXM article of course its true) i just wish they tell us when it comes out so i can make preperations :P

10. Can they just skip making the game already and release the soundtrack?

11. Little Big Planet is way better than this game, so therefore it not important even if it not coming to ps3 cause it suck compare to little big Planet. Did you know that Ps3 is getting good games lately so is not big a deal that this game not coming to ps3.
Hey have u guys heard that Burnout Paradise is awsome on ps3 and x-box 360 version is completely suck, it like the games run on a standard Tv or the tv wasn't tune up probably when you're playing it on PS3 where as ps3 run with super about 60 frame rate per second that is awesome Man!!! yeah VERY True
