A great JRPG, in my opinion.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the 4th related Tales English game news from Bandai Namco Games ever since the first (the announcement of "Graces f" in English).

Bandai Namco Games sure took their time for divulging further "Graces f" / other Tales games news......... : /

The platform, the voice actors, the release date, etc.

This game is impossible to find in retail here in Europe. So this is good news, I still prefer to have a hard copy but I guess this is a good alternative.

nilamo  +   1427d ago

I gave my fiance a sealed collectors edition of this game when it released. got it for free. she never even opened it, not cause shes a collector but beccause shes to lazy to unhook her ps3 to play her 360 lol
Scyrus  +   1427d ago
how can u disagree with that? lol. just sayin what happened.

its a good thing tho because i already have another open collectors also that i played so hers is a good backup that we can sell!

montyburns000  +   1427d ago
great RPG, too bad you missed out on on the PS3 version
TheMutator  +   1427d ago
im still waiting the ps3 version , anyway i have the xbox version but feels rushed
militant07  +   1427d ago
It doesn't feel rushed at all!!!

it has been more thant 2 years and a half since the release of 360 version and more than 1 year and a half since the ps3 jap release
Dread  +   1427d ago
yea it was much better to wait for more than a year to get your sony playstation port in japan.

much better. You sony kids are so lucky. I had such a horrible time playing the game in my 360 more than a year before it was ported. I wish I was lucky enough like all you sony fanboys who have to wait for their ports and play it then . I know it would have been much more fun to wait for so long.

"At least we get like 3 exclusive tales games now."

unless we have both systems...

lol. see, we can act like little sniveling brats too.
Dread  +   1427d ago

I own both systems and I do not suck any company's dingdong. I am a gamer first.
However, I cannot stand stupid fanboys and will call them out everytime, just like I did here

I know I was being sarcastic and critical of his statement but he deserved it.

This is definitely the rarest 360 game here in Europe. It goes for a small fortune on Ebay & Amazon. A lot of euro gamers will be happy about this.

I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand it will get more people to play this brilliant game, but on the other, I don't see it having a positive effect on the value of my sealed copy. Oh well, I guess it wall always have sentimental value.

Still waiting for the ps3 version i refuse to play it on xbox360...
wazzim  +   1427d ago
If you really want to play it
then why refuse to play it on your 360? lol
Naruto_Uzumaki  +   1427d ago
Because the ps3 version has more content in it, so in a way it's the complete version...

being able to play flynn almost all the time is one of the reason why! and the connection to first strike, the all new character patty, new arts and more skits.
Redempteur  +   1427d ago
nice for any jrpg fans who hasn't played this game.

i still prefer having my "real " copy of the game
MR LOOKINGBILL  +   1427d ago
just ignore the Sony fanboys their here to show there ignorance.

TOV on the 360 is one hellva JRPG on the 360.

i find it funny that they want to wait for a game that might never come. and for content that isn't relevant in the first place.

in all that time they could have played and beat ToV 100x over and even at a fraction of the price but refuse to because it has a pirate girl that doesn't even fit the story... that is the definition of a fanboy.
Naruto_Uzumaki  +   1427d ago
It a matter of pride not Fanboy Douchebag i played all tales games on playstation series and gameCube/Wii i just don't see a reason to buy a xbox TOV that has less content then a ps3 TOV that has more content it brings more experience to the player and also if i buy Xbox TOV then a ps3 TOV comes out then i will feel like a Douchebag for getting the incomplete version.. i rather play something that add 1-6 hours of gameplays to make it last longer...i am no fanboy just human pride..

ps: i own all 3 consoles if they brought it as download content then i will buy it on Xbox360 version...

not everyone a Fanboy people do it because of Human Pride...

you're ignorant.

Patty fitted in the story Just fine ( i know because i've finished teh PS3 version ).
This isn't a character in the background ..several parts of the story has been modified in the ps3 version meaning more dongeons , more fights , more boss fights . Heck flynn is playable as a regular character and is present during lots of moments now ( he comes and goes ). Having a real magic swordman in your party changes completly how you play some dongeons believe me .( because YES there are some new enenmies here and there )

You're the fanboy .
The PS3 version has more of everything , including more extra quests , more skills , more shortcuts to place your artes , more scenes , more voices. Heck they even placed characters from the Vesperia movie in IT.( even more content )

Also patty fit in the story more than you think ( i could spoil you some keys moments but you're not worth it ) but let me just tell you that there is a big reveal concerning her past that affect a lot of things concerning the TOV world in itself. Heck she is the gran child of airfried, and airfried is a friend of DON in vesperia world. if you've played past "tales of" games you should understand how significant this is .

There are so many changes that a DLC is IMPOSSIBLE to make. Anyone you've played both version will tell you that
