At the top of the pile sits Valkyria Chronicles 2 then second is Phantasy Star Portable 2, both available on the PSP. Coming in at third place is Wizardry: The Labyrinth of Lost Souls, the highest rated PS3 title.
Famitsu also list their favourite PSOne classics with Final Fantasy VII unsurprisingly taking top spot.
Many of the selection are sadly not available in North American and even fewer make it as far as Europe. Are we missing out?
Digital Battle has formulated a list of the top ten most expensive game budgets of all time, proving that this generation of gaming is by far the most expensive ever.

Yoshinori Kitase, Final Fantasy’s producer told CVG that playing a game as long as Final Fantasy would be “too exhausting” for gamers.
Final Fantasy XIII has so far received a lukewarm reception from critics in the west; a stark contrast to the glowing praise the game is receiving back home in its native Japan.
Yoshinori Kitase, Final Fantasy’s producer has shrugged off this criticism and has accused reviewers of judging the game from a western point of view.
What is a western view anyway?
There’s a certain tension in the air here at Attitude Towers. The normally carefree (or slightly bizarre in the case of Danny_D) banter has been replaced by hushed, worried whispers.
You see, there are Kittens in the Tower today. This generally wouldn’t be any cause for concern – kittens are cute right?
But these kittens have a penchant for shooting, and routinely sharpen their claws – step forward the Kamikaze Kittens.
With the game less than a month away, there is already speculation about downloadable content for Final Fantasy XIII.

Final Fantasy XIII producer – Yoshinori Kitase – has commented on the fact he’s interested in the possibility of upgrading the game into stereoscopic 3D to take advantage of the upcoming PS3 firmware update.
