PS3 Tales of Vesperia Hugely Upgraded


Tales fans who have been awaiting Tales of Vesperia for the PS3 will not be disappointed; a significant array of upgrades to the game has been announced.

The upgrades planned:

The game’s main scenario will be enhanced with the addition of full voicing throughout.

New events and sub-scenarios will be added, along with many extra skits.

Additional ougi will be added.

Extra costumes will feature.

Events connected with the movie will be added.

As we saw, there will also be a new character, Patty Fleur, a piratically themed loli.

Presumably graphical upgrades will also feature.

PS3 Tales fans are thanking the Xbox 360 beta testers for their troubles in ensuring the PS3 version offers the best possible Tales experience for them to enjoy…

    Hopefully some improvements on breast physics and panchira as well.

    Seeing that Xbox 360 would get FFXIII as well, I think it's good bargain. Xbox 360 people shouldn't feel too bad about it.

    Bad? The enjoyment of PS3 owners does not diminish 360 owners' ability to enjoy Vesperia.

    We're happy for you.

    Clearly ToV was meant for the PS3, just that stupid Microsoft has to get in the way of this generations Japanese games: first its timed-exclusives, then its delaying FF13... but at least Namco saves the best for last.

    Interesting. I've never played a Tales game, but my friend has been trying to get me to play Tales of the Abyss. I keep declining since I don't think I have the attention span to play such games but I may consider picking this up to see why people like these games so much.

    Reason why I love playing these games is not solely for storyline but more emphasis on the battle system usually. It's probably my only favorite action rpg's that's easy to learn but can still be a challenge on some things. Try it, it's tons of fun and a good time-killer ^^

    The battle system is the best thing about Tales games.

    Turn-based and ATB systems need to go die in a hole.

    These fanboys discussions here are horrible... I actually prefer the China ones and "first" posts over them (if that is possible).

    Anyway, ps3 has Disgaea 3. That game suffices for the entire generation. I won't mention the other good games because I fear I may trigger some "must reply" fanboy action.

    Its no more real then any other version of Vesperia.

    There will of course be some added material in the hope that 360 owners will double purchase. But overall, some may not want to collect their 2nd copy of Vesperia for just a handful of extras.

    Your happiness is good and I'm happy for you but this doesn't diminish our ability to enjoy what we already have done.

    Have a good time with Vesperia. We're moving on to newer titles. I don't know how much time you dedicate to your gaming, but there's always something else I want to play. Aside from S04 and im@s, I hope to finish koitake before dream club comes out. I can't possibly return to every title that gets a couple of extras.

    If this becomes a trend, then many 360 titles are going to appear on the PS3 in about a year or so after their 360 debut. If that's what you hope, then you might want to hope Vesperia sells really well. And also that a reasonable amount of 360 owners double purchase.

    Be nice to 360 owners, you need their help if you want to have more old 360 titles ported over.

    I wouldn't mind if a few PS3 ones drop our way too.... Disgaea is awfully cute.

    Can’t wait for this to come out now. Too bad I can’t get it right away. There’s too many good games I need to play, so this one will have to wait. It’s definitely not because I don’t have any money and am completely broke. Definitely not it.

    I hate console wars. Actually, I hate companies that release games on only one platform. I liked it better when all you needed was one system if you were looking to play genre "fill-in-the-blank" games. (Atari, NES, SNES, N64, PS2). I'm planning on getting a PS3 (to play RPGS, mainly JRPGs) but it irks me to know that regardless of which next-gen system I get there will be games I want to play available only on the other system.

    They need to make nice and marry their console departments so I can buy a PSBOX.

    You know what developers want from you the most? money, money and only money. They dont care if the game brings you satisfaction, they dont care about disregarding half of the promises they make when announcing the game, and of course they dont care about your wishes as long as ppl pay money. So, be a good boy, and buy every console out there to satisfy their greed. Or better yet, just fuck them all.

    If you're getting it mainly for JRPGs, wouldn't you get the 360 instead? I play mainly RPGs as well, and I have 3 JRPGs for the PS3 and 10 for the 360.

    Artefact, if you're going to report gaming news, at least try not to be biased towards your console of choice.
    Most gaming artciles I read from you are either hoping for a PS3 version or trying to degrade 360 owners...

    I owned this game for the 360, and while it was a fun romp, it's certainly not worth double dipping on for a few additional features that have no bearing on the main story, especially when it's released a year later when most people are done and dusted with it and traded it in like myself.
    It's great news for PS3 owners of course, and the additions make up for the long wait, but I hardly think 360 owners will lose much sleep over the news.

    Sony and Nintendo is the main console of interest for Japanese games, in which I have purchased even though XBox360 may have more games at the moment. That and I don't have much confidence in Microsoft systems.

    Given that even the PS2 is still outselling the 360 in Japan, I'd say it's valid to state that the Xbox 360 is not "a Japanese games console."

    Comment by Artefact

    The fact of the matter is that the only reason the Xbox 360 has any "Japanese" titles at all is because of generous contributions from Microsoft. Who knows whether the PS3 will recover, but the Xbox is still far from the level of the PS2 for these games.

    I own all 3 consoles so I can get the best each has to offer, and from developers all over the world, however, this gen, I have to say 360 has lead the way in terms of JRPG's, which is the only real concern for me in terms of Japanese games (not including the obvious well known brands that make it multi-format worldwide anyway).
    PS3 seems to be getting most of them a year later, with additions of course, but I'd much rather play them as they're released and then move onto other stuff, unless of course they're absolute gems, which tbh, hasn't happened so far this gen, but if it did, I'd double dip on a PS3 version.

    I am happy for ps3 users as I realize that Vesperia will be enjoyed by more at no cost to me.

    However your bias, Artefact, is decidedly unhealthy. You go out of your way to bait, taunt and demean 360 users. I must assume you gain sadistic pleasure from this. I strongly recommend treatment for your psychosis.

    Critical coverage is not a catch all phrase to disguise your personal agenda of putting down the 360 for the PS3. Nor is a moral blanket to comfort yourself when you play the role of a deprived RPG fan spoiling for a fight.

    The only thing ps3 has is a few lukewarm exclusives that dissapoint all the "hardcore" gamers (RE5, MG4 and DM4). I waited for so long for these games to come out. They did and they were all shadows of what made them great.

    Whats left? Multiplatform games that ALWAYS look better and have better online on the 360 than the ps3.

    Like you I await the various ff13's I am sure. There was a time where sony would have my undying devotion just based on the exclusives... not anymore. The days of sony owning all the major exclusives are long gone. (gone with good reason - common sense prevails)

    Then ToV comes out on ps3 and a flaming war ensues. ToV sucks. ToV sucks hard. It wont help the ps3 much. It will in the sense that RPG lovers are deprived (as am I), so they'd buy anything.

    I have all 3 consoles... maybe if I had just one of them, I could be a little homo too and do whatever I could to defend the one purchase I could afford... Seriously, theyre all equally good. Sony is just better at hype.

    You on the other hand just suck. Stop reviewing games cause you can't. Just post random puke on random forums like all fanboys do.
