Basically the same as the Higurashi PS2 remake? If they ever did this with Chiru O would go out and buy a PS3 right away lol.

Looking at the amazon.co.jp rankings, Rondo of the Witch is currently at #12 in PS3 Adventure games, getting at least as high as #4. IIRC, it was in the top 100 of all PS3 games at one point. At least twice, the stock on hand was reduced to only one copy, currently 12. So Chiru getting the a PS3 version isn't out of the question.

Are there any other notable changes from the PC version?

Alchemist already confirmed that they were planning to release a PS3 version of Chiru a while ago.

Several months ago. It was a Japanese article originally mistranslated saying there weren't plans to make a Chiru port (what they really said was that there are no plans to release it on consoles other than the PS3, or to release a port that has all 8 episodes). Too bad I can't find the article.

I also remember it saying that 07th Expansion already has seiyuu for other Chiru characters in mind should the need arise, but they're keeping them under wraps. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Did the article actually say Alchemist planned on making a PS3 version of Chiru, or just that if they made one, there were no plans to port it?

If I remember right the article said something along the lines of "of course there's a plan to do Chiru as well, but the 8th episode isn't out yet."

Which was the reason they gave for not just bundling all eight episodes together.

I was certain they said that they'd only release Chiru on its own regardless. Of course, that doesn't rule out the possibility.

Couldn't you just have gotten any PS3 from your region...? It's not blocked, last I checked...

I'd really want to know if Chiru is on the way... What cons does Alchemist usually attend?

No clue, but they supposedly do have plans to make one (I can't find the article, though). Just don't expect a release containing all eight episodes.

There IS an English article saying there were no plans, but it was a mistranslation; there are simply no plans for a full eight-episode bundle or a release on anything other than the PS3.

So, I found something on the Japanese PSN and I was wondering what exactly it was. I don't know ANY Japanese, so I was pretty curious. There are two things on there you can buy and download. One has a picture of Beatrice on it and was added on 3/8/2011. The other has a picture of the island from afar and was added TODAY. You can find them under the new stuff area too.

Anybody got any idea what they are? I'm assuming it's probably something like wallpaper or avatars or whatever. But I was curious.

Pretty sure they're both custom themes. First one should be a Beatrice theme with a couple shots of her lounging on a couch in a dress and a bikini. Second one should be a theme that cycles through the Rokkenjima outdoor environment backgrounds from the game. And another that cycles through the indoor backgrounds is planned for later in the month.
