Gematsu: "Namco Bandai has announced it’s shipped 500,000 copies of Tales of Xillia for PlayStation 3, which launched yesterday in Japan."
NOw send 500,000 stateside
"Buy Graces F first dude, than we're talked" - said Namdai xD
Trust me I'm buying graces f day one.
Another 500,000 to the EU please
@misterhbk Yeah me too :)
Greats news. I hope this games comes to the US.
I can't believe NA Wii owners have to suffer because Namco-bandai dropped the ball with their Tales of Graces title.
Im pretty sure they only bothered with the ps3 version so to create a demographic for the series on the ps3 in preparation for an english version of xilia.
This is gonna sell a lot of PS3's too. Not just because of the special edition console bundle, but this is one heck of a highly anticipated game in Japan.
It's great to hear the game do well. Hard to think how long we have to wait for it to come to the west.
After this I don't think Namdai is gonna ever abandon the PS brand again. They were stupid for even trying to make Vesperia exclusive to the Xbox and because of that we had to suffer. Vesperia Xbox only sold 500,000 WW and Xillia sold 500,000 in just Japan and only in a couple of days.
I wonder how you even got disagrees . It is a proven fact , twice , via the 360's version lukewarm's sales , and the japanese ps3 sales outpacing it easily , that tales exclusively on 360 didnt work and sells lower . Keep it ps brand exclusive , or multiplatform .
Definitely PS Exclusive. And Namdai better hammer that nail in their thick skulls.
Careful there; it hasn't SOLD 500k, it has just SHIPPED 500k to stores. They're on shelves but not officially sold yet.
Bamco take my cold-hard earned cash! XD The one for Tales of Graces F is already waiting. :3
Imagine if Xenoblade and The Last Story were on PS3, they wouldn't have bombed cause the RPG crowd is at the PS3 side. Congratz to namco-bandai!!!
Actually, the RPG crowd is on the XBox 360 side. Believe it nor not. And both The Last Story and Xenoblade are Nintendo-published. So PS3 owners getting that game is unlikely.
Maybe Xbox360 got WRPGs but they never got ahold of the JRPGs. And I know that Xenoblade and TLS won't come out on PS3 but imagine if Monolith and Mistwalker just let another publisher published the game other than Nintendo so they'll see how it performs and if it didn't do well, then they can move to multiplatform to see what happens. The Wii crowd isn't really there for JRPGs at the moment.
You're aware of Operation Rainfall, right? There is an RPG crowd on the Wii, they just don't live in a continent for which the games have been announced. And Xenoblade actually is selling well.
