Actually it's not the only one...
Still waiting for vesperia ps3 (although i have the 360 version but the ps3 one has extras)
also there is the last story in NA...
the state of JRPGs is really depressing
tiffac  +   1497d ago
Well hopefully we get this one in first then Last Story will be sure to follow. I'm not sure about Pandora though.

As for ToV on the PS3. I'm not sure what's stopping Bamco there. Another JRPG we ain't getting is Valkyria Chronicles on the PSP, Sega hasn't made any news about the localization of that one too.

I actually want Last Story first just cause I suck up to Sagakuchi. I like the boob physics in the game too.
tiffac  +   1495d ago
Lol! No argument on the physics part. XD

You really should give up on Vesperia and stop waiting. It was definitely said it wasn't coming. Beside, the game is 3 years old and already released here.

Vesperia (PS3) will never be licensed outside of Japan due to a contract with Microsoft.

There is no such reason to keep Xenoblade out, and many reasons to publish it over here. It's really unfathomable.
Darkseeker  +   1495d ago
It's not because it's a contract with Microsoft. The person who said that said on facebook she was wrong and it was not true.

If it's not coming, it's probably due to the fact it's a port of a 3 years old game that was already released in USA. That would obviously not sell enough. Of course some fans like us would buy it, but that wouldn't be enough to go above the 100K sales.

What are you talking about?

The state of jrpgs is really quite great right now

This gen more jrpgs have been localized than ever ( from more series we never got)

The reviews have been great

And tons are in development right now
Canary  +   1496d ago
lol, what?

Did you somehow miss the Playsation or Playstation 2 generations?
Stealth2k  +   1495d ago
The ps2 gen didnt have as many games from unlocalized series as we got this gen.

The ps2 left the majority of its rpgs in japan.

And in total this gen got more jrpgs

Wasn't there a read a while back saying it was comeing to the U.S later this year?
The Great Melon  +   1496d ago
There was an unofficial confirmation from a source within Nintendo that localization has already happened for a North American release of Xenoblade and they were just begining to enter the localization process for Last Story. Just go look at the Operation Rainfall website and scroll down a couple posts.

Reason number 1 that I want it here. I've started to play gamecube games on my wii again out of lack of new options.
