I would have bought it if it was on the ps3. The asshats at namco/bandai can suck it. I won't be buying games from them anytime soon.

This game is worth the full price that I payed. One of the best games that I have played this generation.

For some reason I am getting taxed 1.19 and making the game 18.26 instead of 17.07? That 1.19 kind of looking like a killer because of my backlog.

This starts out fairly typical but quickly turns into the best jrpg of this generation.

Can anyone confirm if this is the reprint that comes in the cheaper/eco-friendly case? I assume it is, but would be nice to confirm.

You won't be disappointed. One of the things everyone loves is that the protaganist is badass and not a wimpy guy like in most jrpgs.

I'd hazard this game is better than anything in your backlog.

Such an underrated RPG, Blue Dragon. It's not great but it's certainly a little charmer and far better than most of the JRPGs this generation (i.e. Last Remnant, Infinite Undiscovery, Magna Carta 2).

Honestly, if $1.19 is the difference between buying the game and not buying the game just don't buy it, it's not even $5.00 it's a $1.19. Just don't buy that .99 cent double from Burger King tomorrow and there is your game.

I just picked it up. All these recommendations and an itch for a good RPG made me do it. Sweet. Now to find the time to play all these games.

I swear I've doubled my game inventory in the last three weeks thanks to CAG and Amazon.

This is the only game I had a 360 for. It's one of the better Tales games IMO. I reallyreallyreallyreally wish Namco would localize Tales of Graces and Tales of Xillia on the PS3, but it's doubtful for both. I'm just gonna need to learn to read Japanese, meh.

Valkyria 1 and Vesperia are a deathmatch for the best JRPG this gen and probably the two best ones since FF X. Lost Odyssey, Persona 3 FES, and Eternal Sonata are up there as well.

If any of you who bought the game end up not liking it, you can EASILY get most or all of your $18 back selling it, even at Gamestop.

My podcast didn't award Vesperia Best RPG and 360 Game of the Year in 2008 for nothing (although my co-host made different picks.)

The people that like Valkyria are such a small and vocal group. I hate those SRPG's but love traditional JRPG's.

Apples and oranges, really. I don't think Nintendo paid Grasshopper to keep HMH exclusive, unlike MS which paid Namco to translate the title and to keep it exclusive. MS locked up a lot of Japanese franchises (Rumble Roses, Ace Combat, etc.)

Furthermore, we're talking about a game (NMH) that has new technology on its side to make it refreshing (Move support) and a new coating of paint (the game is being graphically enhanced).

Namco isn't about to spend more resources (and $$$) to redo the voices for a NA release. It would very much rather spend that cash on a new Tales game.

No one (but a select, select few) are going to be at all excited about a ToV release on the PS3.


you're trying hard to sound like you don't want vesperia to be released here on the ps3. with your smile on the op.

i have a 360 so i will get the game for it. if they will ever release the enhanced ps3 version i will sell off the 360 version.

I can't imagine anyone who's played and loved ToV wouldn't want to see us get a port of the PS3 version. I bet many people here are like me: they played ToV, heard about the potential PS3 release, researched it, and were saddened by what they discovered the more they read. He's not happy it's not being released on PS3. He's just being realistic.

As simmias said, I'd love to see Vesperia come out on the PS3. I think it's a crying shame the game doesn't get more attention. Vesperia isn't perfect by any means, but it's a great game and you can tell a lot of heart/soul went into its development.

I like my 360 very much, but I'm not married to it :-) Personally, I hate the exclusives garbage and the way people need to insist that such and such console is better, blah, blah, blah or that this game is somehow SO much better on one console than the other. It's all quite pathetic, really.

I love that this generation is much more a multi-platform than the last, and am hopeful that someday consoles will become extinct and we'll all play our games on one machine. I can only imagine how much better some games could be without having to waste resources on porting over to other machines.

As for my comments on ToV, I was merely trying to get people to give up this notion that the PS3 would get it and simply play the game for the 360 now. There are no business practicalities to bringing the title over now to the PS3. Would it be awesome? Sure. Will it happen? No.

That said, I recall hearing a sequel to Vesperia might be in the works; hopefully, that one goes multi-platform.
