Vesperia Devs Thank Xbox 360 Beta Testers

estelle-xbox-360-desu.jpg

The furor surrounding the Xbox 360 beta version of Tales of Vesperia refuses to abate, with the Namco developers responsible pouring oil onto the flames by thanking the “players” for their contributions in allowing a better PS3 version


The interview was published in the official PS3 guidebook:

Provocative excerpts:

“Xbox 360 players often complained ‘why aren’t these parts voiced?’, so when making the PS3 version we first set about improving the voicing … As a result, the entire main scenario became fully voiced.”

“We’d be delighted if those who played the Xbox 360 version would play the PS3 version too. Of course the same goes for those playing for the first time.”

“We made a lot of changes we think Xbox 360 players would be sure to appreciate.”

“There are a lot of elements from the Xbox 360 version which were improved, so please give it a try.”

“Based on the feedback so kindly provided by Xbox 360 players, we added a lot of additional elements.”

Replace “Xbox 360″ with “beta” and “players” with “testers” for full effect.

Doubtless they are also grateful to Microsoft for subsidising the beta in the first place…

    this is one reason to not hate xbox360 and its users. i don't really care for them but in this case, we need to thank them.

    ok, i'm sick of this topic but still...

    that is one condescending little press release.

    FIX: "There are a lot of elements from the Xbox 360 version which were improved, so please give it a try... SUCKERRRRRS!!!”

    According to the Jewish Agency for Israel, as of 2007 there were 13.2 million MILFS worldwide, 5.4 million of whom lived in Israel, 5.3 million in the United States, and the remainder distributed in communities of varying sizes around the world;

    MILFS ARE JEWS YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST

    I greatly enjoyed Beta testing the copy I borrowed off my friend for free.

    Now release it in the states, Namco, so I can pay $60 for the full game.

    No doubt it will do better on PS3 in the US too.

    I say that they should just allow microsoft to release the new content of the ps3 version as a downloadable update on the xbox... Of course that would kill the ps3 versions sales so hence it won't happen guaranteed. And if it did Microsoft would prolly label it an expansion and charge 20$ for it. I'd enjoy replaying the game with the new stuff (or stuff removed from the original) but I'm not willing to buy a new system to try it! So jaa it really irritates me x3

    I AM TOTALLY UNCONVINCED THAT HAVING A DLC OPTION WOULD DECREASE THE MONEY THEY MAKE, I THINK IT'S MORE A MATTER OF THE DEALS THEY HAVE MADE WITH SONY AND MICROSOFT BUT EH.

    I dont ever recall this flame war with the NES/SNES era. We were lucky we got descent arcade ports just so we wouldn't have to Dump our lunch moneys in the Arcade, but now days.. WOW.. Beta this. Beta that.. This much Resolution textures, that much resolution textures.. Voice, no voice.. WTF exclusives, timed exclusive.. Exclusive DL's, Extra Armor.. Blah Blah Blah.. People dont seem to enjoy their games any more and get their money's worth. I'm still playing Oblivion for 360 and Metal gear solid for PS3 and other games i have not completed so i think i'm getting my money's worth with every purchase. I'm enjoy'n the experience but for you trolls out there nitpicking about a port of a game a year later then show me some sort of financial loss of your stock investment in Microsoft, or the company who made the game cuz that's the only reason u should even be bitching about.

    Please do the world a favor and stop it with the fanboy articles, you know that title was made for hits and I'm sick of the shamelessness in it.

    it's hilarious bullshit like this that makes me glad I don't own ANY console. The minute the Internet and hard drives became available you knew they were going to fuck the goat - patches for consoles, firmware updates, etc they're all bullshit. A console should JUST WORK. 24/7.

    I play my video games on a PC, where upgrades and progress are a known factor, and when any company tried shenanigans like this, they'd be demolished by piracy.

    It's official, Bandai-NAMCO are the biggest bastards in the game industry. Between the nickel and dime DLC-whoring and the acrobatics they pulled to screw over 360 customers, it would take a miracle for anyone else to make a sleazier name for themself.

    This anonymous with no life and who answers with the caps-lock continually on, really has a problem. And lol half his post saying to other people "you are stupid" "you are an idiot" and other mesmerizing words like that.
    Oh! yes let's not forget. BETA, BETA, BETA, BETA, BETA!!!!! lol. Better stop before he gets a heart attack.

    What I wanna say is: developers have a full right to fuck with players as much as they wish. You're just a fools for thinking they must refund you.

    Replace "PS3 version" with "late to the party version of with 60$ MSRP when you can buy the original for 14.99$ in bargain bins"

    Oh, and replace "buyers" with "idiots"

    Well, for all people complaining about the "beta test", get used to it. Ports of a game with new content happens a lot, it has been like that for the last what? 20 or so years? Its interesting to see people even talking about suing namco, but they defend their beloved micro$oft to the death, even tho they have been through 3 hardware revisions to fix a problem that should never have existed in the first place.

    Wow you're real clever. Adding that dollar sign to the company name, but still failing to realize "$ony" does the same thing.

    Let's put it in retard terms.
    A russian man will obviously say "There is nothing wrong with russia, fuck america."
    A US man will say "There is nothing wrong with america, fuck russia."
    Yet both are retards who are ignorant of their own country's wrong doings. Wii would be china, overpopulated and shitty quality.

    What's the point talking about Vesperia PS3 port when there is no word yet that it's going to be released outside of Japan?

    well anyone in their right mind thought ToV was going to stay exclusive must have been delusional since it is a JRPG and japan is dominated by the wii and ps3.IF you 360 fans want to blame anyway direct it towards M$ since they clearly knew this was going to happen but said nothing of it like every other xbox "exclusive" are actually timed and also your fanbase for not supporting JRPGs enough.

    I just lol'd at that "As a result," for some reason.

    "As a result, we think Microsoft can go fuck themselves or at least stop bitching and try to do something to improve the state of their Japanese sales, other than steal titles from PS that is..."
