I would doubt it with this kind of series too, but if I'm not mistaken there are PS2 eroges.

Er, wasn't this already in the news? More than once? It's really old, anyway... it was already old news when ANN first covered it.

Yeah. Of course. The only kind of official (ie. not doujin) game that can be made from a popular shoujo series is porn game made for men. Obviously. *facepalm* Does the site look like a typical eroge site? O_o Like, there are all those very pretty guys and one girl who pretty much passes for a guy. Not the usual lolis/girls with big boobs + one male combo... (Plus, are there any "only for 18 and up" signs anywhere? No. Not eroge, then.)

By the way, I really don't like the new, game-only character. For one, he looks boring (a mix between Hikaru and Tamaki...), and two, his backstory pretty much destroys Tamaki's... the "he had a lonely childhood" and "never had friends of his own age" part which accounts for a big part of his personality. (Not to mention that Kyouya is supposed to be his best friend...)

Ah well, not that I'm complaining (much)... finally here's a chance to get Haruhi together with Kyouya. I wonder if it'll have love triangles...

Where can you find a picture of this game-only character?

I browsed around the character section, but i can't seem to find pictures.

I believe that would be this Jean Pierre Reo (sp?) person...I've never seen him before, so he seems to fit the bill.

Either way... this makes me so tempted to get a .jp PS2...but first, to learn enough Japanese so that I can understand the game if I ever get it Wink

Edit: mufurc beat me to it, oh well

Uh, there are plenty of very erotic Japanese dating simulation-type games for 18+ that are geared towards women. Not all erotic games are for men.

I think it was only once, but it was definitely in the news at least once. Unless the other one was for PC and this one is for PS2.

There are ero games for girls too, you know.

I bet this is going to be a parody of dating-sim games, and Renge will come in from time-to-time when something isn't date-sim-y.

I know. Those are not called "eroge." That word is usually reserved for male-targeted stuff.

And anyway, there's no way they'd ever make an official 18+ game from Ouran. I mean... it's Ouran. It's shoujo and despite its theme it's actually quite innocent. Doujin games? Sure, though I don't know of any plans of such a game. Official? No way.

As far as I knew, "eroge" referred to porn games period. This is the first I'd heard that it referred specifically to the ones for guys. Is there a different term for the ones for girls then? I'm not saying you are wrong, its just the first I'd heard of there being a distinction between the two.
