I see. In that case, I'll probably buy both. Vesperia would be much more cheaper now so I think that would be my first choice. I'm more of a Star Ocean fan since the games are linked together and SO4 being the Origins of the game made me want it more. Thanks for the opinion man.


Are you sure Vesperia is cheap by now? at game stop pre-owned cost 39.99$ can't blame them it's an awesome game, please release the PS3 version. shamefulcry0js.gif

EDIT: WTF at wiki it says the PS3 version of Vesperia was released in Europe on September 9, 2009, that's three years ago! what's going on with releasing the game to North America?

It is on the PS3 it's just for some reason which I don't know they haven't released the version to NA shores.

Don't beleive everything Wiki tells you Graven it was never released in Europe on the the PS3, they barely released enough copies to meet the demand for the 360. That games was going for crazy prices on Ebay foir used copies, it's now going for a much more acceptable 40+, though you can get it for half that on XBL Games on Demand service.

Reason why it's not released in the west is rumoured to be because Microsoft own exclusive rights to the game in the west. They pretty much funded the game and then got screwed over by Namco who decided to use that money to make a better version on the PS3.

It goes to show you that Japanese RPG like the Tales series sell WAY better in the PS3 than 360.

I bought Tales of the Abyss 3DS for myself as an Easter present, and I'm already in love with it. I can't really gauge how much I like it compared to the other titles I've played, but so far it's been great. I like Luke and Tear's interactions. happy.gif


Yeah. Idiot hero with kyuudere is a pleasant twist for once tongue.gif

I really wish they release the PS3 version of Vesperia most importantly there's an additional character in said version some pirate girl I forgot her name. Anyway since I haven't play Vesperia but play Graces, I love Graces very much I haven't been so hooked to a game since Symphonia and I was really hooked on that game because I clear it like a million times.

As for my fav characters.

Chester, Ashe (they belong together nuff said), Sheena, Presea follow by Asbel and Sophie.


Me too. Vesperia is great I hear, And it definitely takes my interest but I don't have a 360 So I can't play it in English

Not really, in Japan definitely but in the west it's not as concentrated as that, it's not like the last generation where jRPG fans all brought a Playstation, it's been spread out a bit, The person who got me to play jRPG doesn't own a PS3, neither do most of my friends wh grew up on JRPG's, however the truth of the matter is in Japan the 360 is dead, it never really had a chance really, as Japan unlike the west tend to look at foreign brands like a invasion and avoid them to protect their own national brands, this has in recent years backfired on them in the games industry as the rest of the world has moved on, developers don't care to break the market, and foreign consumers of Japanese games is declining, it was one of the major leaders globally but with the exception of a few multinational brand names, most games are made for the japanese market only.

What I'm trying to say is that the PS3 is more designed for RPG than the 360. 360 is more focused on shooters, race games, western RPG games. The PS3 can focus on all those categories but it also specialize in JRPG because it's Sony example the FF series, Valkyria Chronicles, Eternal Sonata and the Tales series. I really hate the reason that Vesperia on the PS3 isn't going to be release because Microsoft owning the rights damn dry.gif. Of course since the PS3 version is way better they don't want their rival company to release the game.

I don't blame Microsoft if the rumour for Vesperia not coming out in the west is true, they paid allot of money to get the game first and Namco screwed them over by giving them a incomplete game, to this day it still pisses me off. I don't see why the PS3 is more designed for RPG's, the controller is just as easy to use in a RPG game than a FPS, Racing game or any other genre, infact the only reason I play the PS3 more now is because I have a third party controller that looks like 360 controller. Just because it's made by a Japanese company doesn't mean it's automatically better designed for the genre...if anything the 360 is better suited, as it's easier to design games for, if you take out Final Fantasy, there are not really any jrpg's that push the capabilities of current gen consoles, so if the developer wants to make a game on budget the 360 would be ideal, but the lack of consoles sold in Japan make it pointless.

Btw: With the exception of Valkyria Chronicles all the other gamesou mentioned were released on the 360 as well.

You keep on saying the PS3 version is 'way' better. How did you come by that opinion? Have you played both games on both systems? Is there an entire dungeon area in the PS3 version that's not in the Xbox? Vesperia on the Xbox was fantastic. Graphics, gameplay, and story-wise. I'm not sure how much 'better' it could be between the two systems.

Do you have your PS3 still on Firmware version 3.55 or lower? If not you'll have to play the PS3 version and rely on the internet for translation (Unless you can already read and understand Japanese) the project requires an exploit found in Firmware 3.55 and lower that allowers for unsigned sottware run on the PS3, which would patch Vesperia so that the menue's and subtitles are all in English. The link to the site I have two PS3's and have kept one at 3.55 for that reason alone, originally was because I was hoping i'd see some awesome homebrew software but it's been dissapointing on that end so i'm really just keeping it in the hope the project gets completed soon, been waiting for over a year already, been very quite past few months.

I just need to get hold of a copy of Vesperia, but not planning on buying until I know the project is coming to completion. However appears they will provide the full text script for those that updated their PS3 to play Graces,

Here are some news for the upcoming OVA of Tales of Vesperia the First strike with the official English dub cast. June 26 is the official release date.

http://www.talesunio...nced--2057.html


Also here's a link where people are signing a petition to localize Tales games that haven't been release outside of Japan, among them Tales of Vesperia for PS3 those who are Tales fan on this forum please sign the petition too so we can show Namco Bandai that we want the series to be brought to NA.
