Tales Of Vesperia RAGE

Kotaku Writes:Imagine that you don't own an Xbox 360. Maybe, you don't even want one. But then a game comes out on it, a game you really want, and it's an exclusive.

To play it, well, you'd probably buy the console, take your "Only On Xbox 360" game home and play the crap outta it. Then imagine several months later, that same game emerged once again, like a Phoenix from the flames, and was appearing on another console - with more story, new characters, the works! How would you feel?

Bamboozled! Pissed off! Mad! Nerd rage has been directed at Bandai Namco's Tales of Vesperia, which was an Xbox 360 exclusive. That is, until it decided to appear on the PS3 with brand new shiny stuff.

I like it when you cry, Kotaku. Please cry more, your misery brings me joy.

GrandTheftZamboni3786d ago

Their tears taste like the sweetest nectar. What would be even sweeter is Gears of War with extra content for PS3.

ZuperAmazingCooKie3786d ago

"Gears of War with extra content for PS3. "

Epic owns the content, so it's not impossible

pain777pas3786d ago

Gears on PS3 would be just plain wrong. LOL!!! I would not want that for M$'s sake. I really don't understand what they are doing anymore Sony is becoming more like Nintendo with first party and M$ loses the main reason I gave in to them. BIOWARE and Bungie. Now look at this Bioshock, Oblivion, and Tales. Seriously, whats next? I will only play Gears on my xbox its only fair. But if there is one that I want on the PS3 meaning both games on one disc ME1 and 2. Please Bioware and EA please do this for us. PS3 only owners may not know how great this game is unless they have a PC.

How is kotaku crying?

People who bought 360 for tales of vesperia are pissed off so they broke the game lol. I think its funny

MazzingerZ3786d ago

I think Japan has learned a new term: "Timed exclusive"...that didn't exist in Japan before

Lawliet3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

I guess this is calling for a celebration! Tears of Kotaku! ToK!

Tales of Vesperia is a succesfull enough game on the 360 and the PS3 isn't blowing it anymore so why not. A lot of developers are really begining to wounder what their sales would be like on the PS3 compared to the 360 so it only makes since to test the waters now on the PS3. Tales of Versperia is a true jrpg so it will be intresting to see how the sales stack up on a system most people thought would be the leading platform for jrpg's when they purchased their PS3 to begin with.

I really think there are some 360 owners out there who don't want jrpg's on the PS3 for a sadist pleasure of knowing that ps3 owners can't play them rather then being able to play them for themselves. Lets face the facts the PS3 is a better system for jrpgs and my money is on the PS3 racking in more cash for Tales then the 360 did.

SaiyanFury3786d ago

Kotaku whines about 360 "exclusives" that are no longer exclusive. I predicted for months that Tales of Vesperia would come to the PS3, yet so many people insisted it wouldn't. Here it is and now Kotaku complains. Sorry boys, Namco knows their market and releasing a JRPG exclusive to a console that sells the worst in Japan in financial suicide.

STK0263786d ago

How come when a 360 timed exclusive goes to the PS3, people are mad, despite the fact that the 360 owners had the game about one year ahead.

But when the PS3 loses an exclusive (like GTA, DMC, etc), it's good for all gamers, because "more people will get to enjoy the game"?

I don't really care since I already own both consoles, but I just thought it's weird seeing the double standard, despite the fact that 360 owners STILL get the game first.

gaffyh3786d ago

@STK - Actually fanboys on both sides go crazy.

ZuperAmazingCooKie3786d ago

"@STK - Actually fanboys on both sides go crazy"

No. Only 360 fanboys do it. They're a rare breed.


RememberThe3573785d ago

Just look at the Final Fantasy 13 fallout. Some PS3 fanboys literally swore themselves off any Square-Enix games.

Raz3785d ago

..That'll teach ya to stick with a winner. Anybody who buys a console just for one game is a tool, anyway. That's $300 you could have spent on accessories and games for the console you already had. Dumbass.

I don't see them doing this when Xbox 360 version of games get exclusive contents than the PS3 version.

CrippleH3786d ago


They were practically begging for a 360 MGS4 for years.

sonarus3786d ago

You guys are missing the point of the story

People in Japan who bought 360 for Tales of Vesperia are pissed off that its coming to PS3 too. So some japanese kid broke his game and burnt some stuff up and kotaku is reporting it

In my opinion that is funny as hell. But thats a cruel trick for microsoft to play with that only on 360 label. Anyway next time he won't be so quick to buy a console for one game

hay3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

Yeah, this is pretty much kick in the nuts for Microsoft also. They lost one of the coolest games on X[ ]O this gen along with Japan fanboy's trust.

JeepGamer3785d ago

Just because Kotaku was the utterly unreliable source for "MGS4 could come to 360" stories that got shot down time and time again is no reason to think that they would whine when a 360 exclusive becomes rather un-exclusive.

"PS3 exclusive goes multiplatform"
Kotaku: YAY!!!!

"Xbox 360 exclusive goes multiplatform"
Kotaku: WTF? Bullsh*t. F*ck Sony. MGS4 [email protected][email protected]!

TheColbertinator3786d ago

Meh.I wanted each console to have its own version.The Wii is getting 3 "Tales of" games and it also got Fragile

lloyd_wonder3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

This actually an article about Japanese gamers in a RAGE

Burning 360's, breaking ToV 360 disc, swearing off Microsoft etc

All because they bought the console for the game. If you thought regular PS3 fanboys were bad, Japan as a whole doesn't like the 360

San Frandisco3786d ago

lol yeah no sh!t man,that place is fanboy Land,specifically sony fanboys.
so yeah looks like C0cktaku is the only crybaby's whining.
Brats need to chillax.

UltimateIdiot9113786d ago

I bet those otaku sucked up their pride to purchase a 360 even though fellow gamers told them otherwise. After discovering to be wrong about their purchase, the lost of security caused them to snap.

v1c1ous3786d ago

the issue is that the 360 has a small niche fanbase. but the japanese, when they like something, they tend to get fanatical about it. thus the term otaku.

however, in this case, the 360 otaku was copying the reaction of another otaku who was a fan of the popular series KANAGI, in which the main heroine was thought not to be a virgin, so the fan took pictures of himself breaking his manga collection into pieces.

the 360 otaku copied him as a joke.

Godmars2903786d ago

The irony here is that not only would it have been likely that all the extra content, especially the full voice overs, wouldn't have been on the PS3 if ti had come out sooner, but now people are going to be wondering if FFXIII wont have the same thing. And what that means for the 360 version if the PS3 version does have it.

BLuKhaos3785d ago

"Burning 360's, breaking ToV 360 disc, swearing off Microsoft etc"... Good! they should have been doing that from the beginning .
