Kombo Writes: "The latest issue of Jump in Japan has a massive blowout of Tales of announcements for the Wii, PSP, and PS3. "
This one can't win for losing.
It's hard to believe anything in April 1st. that's a big sign in IGN.[rumored] even IGN is careful because of april fool.
Why must you release this information today! And make us doubt you!!! WHY!!!?
Well I just saw the scans and this seems real. Even IGN has this information up on their website.
I can't read enough japanese to tell... I wish I started learning last year
Guys this story is TRUE, look at the scans, they would be pretty hard to fake.
"Guys this story is TRUE, look at the scans, they would be pretty hard to fake." new to the internets? This is an april fool's joke. I cannot believe how gullible people are. Poor, Sony fanboys, you guys get targeted again and again and again.
if its true: :D if it's a dam April Fool's joke: >:[
@Pumpkin - Maybe I am gullible and it is an April Fool's joke, but the scans are there. It looks completely plausible to me, and that's why I said it's true, not because I'm a Sony fanboy. On the other hand it makes it so obvious that you are a xbox fanboy (like everyone didn't already know!) with that retarded comment.
the scans could be fake. I own CS4, and with the stuff it could do, this would be a piece of cake.
I'll bite and say this is real. Eternal Sonata was announced in Japan for Ps3 around this time last year. Remember, MS's magic checks are only good for a year.
I knew Tales of Vesperia was coming, the same as Eternal Sonata also showed up after Namco denied rumours of a PS3 version. I'm glad I waited and didn't get the 360 version. This one'll no doubt have extra content and whatnot. Now if S-E would hurry up and release Star Ocean 4 on PS3, I'll be truly happy. :D
Great! I was thinking of getting it for my Xbox 360 now that it's going to be released here in Europe, but now I'll get the Playstation 3 version whenever it releases instead. My console preference mainly comes down to that I've used my Playstation 3 more and thus know it better. I have spent a lot of time calibrating my image with it, but can't do that with my Digital Video Essentials Blu-ray on my Xbox 360 (and no one has the damn DVD for sale).
They got an RPG to go multiplat!! All hail Sony. How will Microshaft answer to this. RPG GOES MULTIPLAT!!!! YAAAAA!!!! sarc.
The scans look real. I must admit that the scans look real and I really would like to pick this game up for the PS3 even though honestly I could get it on the 360. I just don't want to use it as much anymore its way too fragile.
OMG! It must suck to be a 360 fanboy in 2009.
In an old issue of PLAY magazine, the producers talked about Vesperia coming to the PS3, hinting they just didn't know when. The also talk about how either Legendia, or Abyss wasn't well received, in NA, because of the story, and changes.
it has to be a joke..... Who would call a guy Tos-R? You know what that sounds like right?
@coolfool - do you mean ToSKoR? That is the name of a game the same character was previously in. Tales of S... (I don't know which on though)
this looks crediable, i bought Tales of Ves on 360, but never finsihed, so ill trade in to get Tales of ves for ps3....any news on ace combat 6...:)...
Then MAYBE I'll believe it. Today, NOTHING should be taken seriously
It's True. 100% true. This is not an April Fool's joke.
...today and on this day, I have to take every article/announcement/rumor with a some skepticism.
I hope it`s true, this is a great Jrpg that should be enjoyed by all. If you have not had a chance to play it on the 360 or you only have a PS3, do not miss this great game.
Does Japan celebrate April Fools Day?
Someone disagreed with me over a simple question? I merely asked if Japan observes April Fools Day, something we have in North America that they may not observe overseas? Why did you disagree with me?
After seeing the 'so-called' scans i got a feeling this is for real For one i dont think Japan do the whole April fools thing and two, how the hell can someone photoshop gameplay screens? That would be pretty hard to do without it looking overly obvious I just thought they were making a new PS3 tales game rather than just porting the 360 one
Here you are my friend: http://i41.tinypic.com/fnwl...
...Suzaku from Code Geass.
Kinda looks like Lelouch & Suzaku's kid. ^^;
You should see the Brawl X thing IGN did.. They actually have gameplay footage to go along with it. IMO IGN and Blizzard have some really good ones. Last years World of Guitar Craft was pretty funny.
the new character isn't the Suzaku-lookalike, it's the kid with the pirate hat.
I hope Tales of Vesperia comes to ps3.
Only on 360 label rules.
Well, as I type this, and for the next few months at least, that label still stands. And when and if it comes out on the ps3, people that only own a PS3 will have a chance to enjoy this great game.
On the other hand, I haven't seen a released PS3 exclusive going over board.
what other hand? Oh, you mean the one that cares is an exclussive jumps ship? I`m just happy some people that don`t have a 360 and only have a PS3 will be able to enjoy this great Jrpg, how bout you? Or are you just happy your big robot in the sky took one of the other robot`s games away?
It's the only April's Fool joke I whish to be true.
But it is true. So your wish came true.
Yep IGN spilled it "For the PlayStation 3 comes the much expected port of Tales of Vesperia. But not just a direct port! Namco Bandai is adding a new character to the mix, a young pirate girl named Patty Fruel. Patty has a unique way of talking -- she apparently speaks like an old person! In battle, she makes use of knives and guns and is said to resemble the pirate class from Radiant Mythology 2. Vesperia's PS3 conversion will hit Japan in 2009. It will be joined by a new Tales of Vesperia movie now in production at Production I.G."
If that all PS3 owners are getting for waiting a year for this game, then this is extremely lame. Why pay $65 dollars for a new game when all you are getting is a single new character.
here's the link: http://ps3.ign.com/articles...
Either way I don't really care for ToV.The story was weak IMO Star Ocean 4 on the other hand is a stronger game with a larger fanbase.If a PC or a PS3 version is announced,that would suck for me.
"Star Ocean 4 on the other hand is a stronger game with a larger fanbase.If a PC or a PS3 version is announced,that would suck for me." Why would it suck? More people would be able to play the game at that point. You would still be able to play it on the 360. And who says that ToV didn't have a strong and large fanbase?
If a PC version of SO4 is announced,I would feel ripped as the superior version of SO4 with a stable framerate would be on the PC.The PS3 version would also be annoying since I expect games that are announced only for 360 to stay on 360.
Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope was never announce exclusively for the Xbox 360. They just announce the game for the xbox 360, but never confirmed it was exclusive.
For a game to truly be exclusive to the 360, it would have to be a first party title, since third parties can change alliances, and contracts can and usually do expire. It's been that way for years. That's been the main problem in this third party strategy that MS has been doing. They depend too much on them to deliver true exclusives when they really can't do things like that without a big risk involved. You're seeing what happens when a company depends too much on third parties without any first parties to fall back on.
That's new to me Colbot... Since when Star Ocean started to be a bigger franchise than the Tales series? o_0 That's as stupid as saying that Final Fantasy it's a bigger franchise than Dragon Quest in Japan... The first 2 Star Ocean games were pretty underrated and overlooked by most people while the Tales series have been popular and strong since Tales of Phantasia in the Super Nes. Then, Tales of Destiny came for PSX and it was so popular that there's a remake of the game for the PS2. The same with Tales of the Abys that it even has its own anime but what about Tales of Symphonia? The first great jrpg exclusively on Nintendo's console. I think you're just doing what a fanboy does, defending his preferred console with pure speculation and nonsense. I understand if you say that ToV was weak and that you liked more SO4, I even agree with that statement but to call it a bigger franchise... That's a lie.
For instance if you look at Virtua Fighter 5. When it was released for the PS3, I was happy and played the mess out of it but no online component makes things not fun after a while (long while but while nonetheless). Then it came to the 360 with ONLINE and I was pissed because they got to play it over a network. So in that respect, I can understand Stevens point. However, I fully understand darkpower's point. If everyone gets a chance to play it, then that's fine. Believe me, Steven is not a fanboy. He's pretty cool.
I'll agree with Darkpower.If more people play it,I'm fine with that. One more thing,congratulations to you all for having a good discussion in the open zone
Hurrah that this is not april fools.
Came in here to say something similar
haha yeah only on the 360 label means absolutely nothing afterall.
Maybe It should say, (Only for 360, for now)
For this week, i wont believe anything without tangible proofs. April fools kill the journalism.
Telling someone you got them a $50 gift certificate at Waffle House!!!! Waffle House is so ghetto.
Have a feeling this is real, but I'm going to be skeptical. We've been tricked by this before. Though I SO want this to be real. The PS3 really needs JRPGs. EDIT: I have Folklore and know about VC (still need to buy it, though). But compared to all the JRPGs that the 360 has right now, the PS3 needs more to be able to compete with it.
Eternal Sonata is ok and Valkyria Chronicles is my favorite JRPG this generation.
Eternal Sonata and Folklore are both very good RPGs on the console. Valkyria Chronicles and Disgaea 3 are both amazing and no gamer that's ever enjoyed any RPG should miss out on playing them. Also, Cross Edge coming out May 20th.
Disgaea 3 is EASILY my fravorite... Soon after was Tales of Vesperia and Valk Chronicles.
Yes,it's true. Tales of Vesperia is coming to PS3. this issue is from real Weekly JUMP Magazine. I'm now in Japan.
You lucky son of a...
If this story is in a real Japanese magazine it's just bad timing. I play on a Japanese MMORPG. They don't calibrate April fools so why bother announcing fake stories. Even so there is an advantage to announcing a real story on April fools. If people hear it they'll question the authenticity of the information and it'll cause extra controversy on the interwebs. Controversy increases brand recognition which in turn could increase sales. The more people talk about something the more it's recognized.
That scan you posted says Tales Of Vesperia is being animated for movie by I.G production, doesn't say anything about porting to PS3.
this is another page of the latest JUMP Magazine. http://www.uploda.org/uporg... it's real.
The image to the left has the new character and some of the details. I can give you a 100% guarantee it's real.
