    Awesome that’s it’s exclusive to PS3. Take that Xbox 360 for AC6, Project Aces will always favor Sony. Back to ACI, it looks interesting but disappointed they’re not going back to strange real :(

    @3 Why? All the countries are merely allegories for NATO and Soviet nations.Hell, Ace Combat X was North Korea vs South Korea and 5-6 were pretty much America vs Russia with Belka being Soviet era Germany. Let’s all hold hands and pray that they don’t decide to take anymore cues from Call of Duty for greater “western appeal” and ditch the semi mandatory rail shooter mode.

    Why keeping it ps3 exclusive? Also read on neogaf that there were a PSVita logo on the site before but it has been removed.

    edit: My WiiU is crying (again) and so am I.

    Looks like it’s the real world after all,Pause at :029 and you can see a digital map of Russia and at 0:26 you can clearly see America. You can see the Nosferatu from Ace Combat 6 with the PAK FA and a flight of Shinden IIs. Not really sure where they’re going with this. Are they going to continue where AH left off and throw in the sci fi elements they intentionally removed or are they creating another universe with the real world as a base.

    it’s PS3-exclusive only in japan. Just Like Dynasty Warriors

    @11 – Dynasty Warriors is not from Namco-Bandai.

    Namco have done both release PS3 exclusive games (Tales of Xillia) in the West AND release 360 versions of other Japanese PS3 exclusives (Dark Souls), so there is no telling, either way, which one they will do now.

    However, when there is a 360 version of it for the West, they do usually announce that the very first day.

    Strangereal has tons of backstory and history (albeit unoriginal ones) poured into it that it’s a shame to leave all those behind.

    All I want is for my character to be important again. I miss hearing friendly ground troops cheering for my Ribbon Insignia and my Razgriz emblem as I flew past them.
    And get rid of those pesky helicopters. They remind me of Uncharted’s Jet-skis.

    i know dynasty warriors is from tecmo-koei, all i’m saying is AceCombat is the same as dynasty warriors, first japanese release only on PS3, then after 3 to 6month later they announce english version of the game and coming on both cosoles.

    Ace Combat 6 was x360 exclusive and it was a shitty game.
    this one looks like shitty game too, by the way Assault Horizon was shit too

    Not sure if I’m excited or worried just yet. No strange real again, worried. It might mean that the gameplay will remain as horrendous as Assault Horizon.

    @4 Amen to that. that is the thing I’m worried about the most.

    @14 – But you’re speculating. There isn’t any proof of it either way. I’m saying wait and see, while you are saying it is a definite, which it is not.

    And personally, I’m not a fan of the series anyway, so I don’t really care where it goes, but I just wanted to correct your use of pontification as fact.

    @15 I hope the gameplay is classic AC. If they return to it, I don’t give a shit what the story is, even though the only voices in the trailer seem weird. Just give me all my old mission types with a few new takes, and a shit ton of plane types and weapons, and I’ll be the happiest girl at the dance! :D Come on Namco, you win me back!

    @SlayerGT :D The trailer reminded a bit of Macross plus’ insane singing AI lady Sharon Apple. Which is a good thing. Really want them to pull something as insanely awesome as Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere, the JP version. I had to have the printed translated dialogues in my hand to understand it but it was an exceptional experience, a lot like Zone of Enders 1 and 2.
