Is Sony Hinting Towards a Tales of Vesperia PS3 Port for the West?

PS Euphoria: The "Tales of.." fans are at a buzz from Sony’s recent PlayStation Plus poll set up by the PlayStation Blog as it faintly mentions Tales of Vesperia. Is this hinting towards Tales of Vesperia being released in the West? (PS3, Tales of Vesperia)

Hope so maybe sony is trying to get a deal with namco for tales distribution in the west.

Isn't Tales of Xillia already confirmed for the West for the second half of this year? I can't see a Western version of Vesperia coming out if Xillia sticks to that release period.

A free copy on tales of xillia if you order?
Nate-Dog  +   590d ago
@Minato: Seems a little unlikely considering how troublesome it seems for Namco to localise Xillia, but who knows I guess. Just personally I'd be surprised if they decided to localise this as well as that.

We're already getting the superior Tales game "Xillia" this year.
But Vesperia was pretty good too.

I hope so, keep bringing those RPGs, Sony

PLEASE & THANK U!!! Vita too i hope.. After bioware went multiplat, vesperia was the only exclusive they had that held me back from getting rid of my 360.. If i see the far superior ps3 version get localized, bye bye 360.. For good

Hell yeah, that would be awesome. And this is after playing Vesperia twice already on 360. It's still a great game, but all the additions makes the 360 version look like a beta in comparison.
StrawHatPatriot  +   590d ago
Yes, not many good JRPG's this gen for home consoles, I heard Vesperia was good so I'd rather play that than try to play that uh, well, Final ... Fantasy.. XIII
Summons75  +   590d ago
Final fantasy 13 hate from a guy with a picture of cloud....way to be a stereotype of haters. I bet you'll deny it when someone tells you 10 and 13 are super similar.

On topic. Tales of vesperia was great on Xbox and I heard the ps3 one was suppose to be better so ill welcome it. Love the ales series.
princejb134  +   590d ago
Cloud is on 7 not 13
And the battle system and story are very different
So he has his reasons for ff13 hate
jrbeerman11  +   589d ago
so kefka picture makes you superior? cant ff6 and ff7 fans get along?

Also just because 13 had a much inferior version of leveling to sphere grid, doesnt make the games the same.

there are a ton of things that 10 does well, 13 is just painful to think about. I mean 75% of game was like a tutorial to show you how to use autobattle.
StrawHatPatriot  +   589d ago
Says the person with Kefka.. lol
I've actually played FFX and FFXIII, and both are actually very different, with some few similarities.

Final Fatasy X is turn-based with random battles, limit breaks, it has a fixed camera angle, it has some puzzles (cloister of trials), it is less linear (in nearly everything), ability to switch characters in between battles, it has far more instances of NPC's and shops, etc.

They're only similar in terms of the upgrading/leveling system. The storytelling and characters are better in FFX, by default.

I hope because Vesperia is the only decent Tales game that has come out this gen.

Tales of Graces f was excellent in my opinion.
ceedubya9  +   590d ago
Yep, Graces F is an outstanding game.
chrispseuphoria  +   590d ago
Read my review if you want. It was one of the best games I played last year.

Relientk77  +   590d ago
Tales of Graces f is amazing, and potentially my fav JRPG of this generation
Lucreto  +   590d ago
More than likely it is a typo and they meant Tales of Graces F.
Hicken  +   590d ago
Um, Graces F is already out and has been so for the greater part of a year, now.
jc48573  +   590d ago
Remember when Sony wanted us to pester Namco to release Vesperia outside of Japan?

That's awesome. I still need to get Tales of Graces f.
DarkZane  +   590d ago
It's a typo or a mistake on their part. It's been 3 years since it was released on PS3 in japan.

It's certain at this point it's not gonna happen ever. Also, Namco shut down any rumors and said it wasn't happening.
chrispseuphoria  +   590d ago
Look at Mass Effect. It released during 2007 for Xbox 360. It's been 5 years since then and it was finally put on the PlayStation Network during December.

jc48573  +   590d ago
not just Mass Effect. Japanese publishers are known to do re releases at a later time.
porkChop  +   590d ago
It's not coming. They just put that as an example of a JRPG so people know exactly what types of games they're referring to.
Chaos_Raiden  +   590d ago
Excellent. Hope both Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Xillia will be released in English this year.
Luke_fon_Fabre  +   590d ago
I have both 360 and PS3 so I don't care. I suppose it would be nice, but they've already localized it once. When has Namco ever released a Tales game on more than one game system in a region? Only in Japan.
RmanX1000  +   590d ago
I was vote Number 14,662 and JRPGs like FF13 and ToV take first place at 15% :D
Chrono  +   590d ago
LOL I bought a 360 just to play this and Mistwalker's games, should have waited.
Emilio_Estevez  +   590d ago
'The following are examples only.'

So the answer would seem to be no, they aren't imo.
strigoi814  +   589d ago
Make this happen. This will be good on ps3 and vita also
ZeroX9876  +   589d ago
This would be awesome!!!
With all the extra content on the PS3 version, I would gladly buy it a second time. Even if it`s just a psn release, RELEASE IT!!! :D
