    I love the fact that 3 of the costumes all come from Vesperia. “Bamco when’s muh Vesperia for ps3 in the US!” Comments galore….

    We also didn’t get it in EU

    Well Isshak says that “bandai namco want to focus on releasing new games, and so they won’t bother with older titles”

    EDIT: I would love to get Tales of Abyss :/ it was NA only for PS2 (region lock)

    They also said there were no plans for the vita games to be localized, but luckily that has been changed. Granted those are newer and it has been a whole 5yrs since ps3 ToV. The translation group did do another announcement recently as well, so there’s always that option to look at.

    Sorry about missing out on previous games cause of region stuff. At least you guys get fancier steel books and shirts nowadays…

    … well I don’t think so seeing as CM can act sometimes like a real jackass about it.

    Just take a look




    So I really doubt that they will re-release those. But yeah… I would kill to play those.

    EDIT: oh and take a look at this



    So yeah… not going to happen

    I don’t hope you talking about EU since, we don’t get many Steelbooks.

    Tales of Xillia 2 CE (EU) – Metalcase vs US Steelcase.
    Tales of Xillia 2 Day Edition – Metalcase.

    Then we have Tales of Symphonia CE, which rip off EU so hard that people still talk about it. (Only US got a Steelcase)

    Tales of Xillia had a tipo Metalcase as pre-order bonus from Amazon italy while, US only got a Jewel case soundtrack, Anniversary theme and a better box.

    This leaves us with 1. Steelbook for US and 1-3 Metalcase for EU.

    The translation patch require a specific firmware version so it’s a very a expensive way to play it.

    I find it funny that, Tales of Hearts R avatar’s will be available ad launch and yet The Vita doesn’t have a option to change Avatar’s.

    Ahhh! I knew that that nick rang a bell :)

    Oh I know, I never tried to follow everything :P I don’t even have twitter :) Only noticed it by ocassion :P

    Well… I dunno how full conversation looked like. But it doesn’t seem to me that Isshak is good CM. It looks like he is too “immature”? Well… he does look like a younger fellow, probably even younger than me… but still… it didn’t sound alright.

    Saying that someone is delusional or saying that fans are “whining”… is something which shouldn’t be said.
