Is it wrong for developers to celebrate in just making a profit and lasting this long in the gaming industry?

Humble pie has the best taste when you are the one holding the fork I guess.....

You have to take to account that some of these games have yet to make it over to the west. Also the series although pretty popular is still a niche series overall.

The highest selling games of the series (Symphonia & Destiny) has only done about 1 million each & one of them came out in 1997.

Someone's forgetting majority of the Tales games are Japan-only...
Not overly impressive but not bad either considering some of this series is Japanese only and most of the fan base is in Japan. At least they are bringing over Xilla over to North America and EU next year. Between this and Ni no Kuni I am looking forward to next year for some RPG fun.

Bamco you need to localize more Tales for your English speaking market.

I've always hoped, if they didn't want to do full on localizations, they'd start to make region free or digital copies that have have subtitles. There aren't enough games like Demon's Souls, where if they're taking forever on the localization, that I can just import instead.

I'd be curious how much it'd cost to hire a few people to run translations, heck hire the people out there doing fan translations.

They could also allow 3rd party publishers like XSeed to localize for them. I think that would be less expensive for the developer. ^^
