Tales of Vesperia (Possibly Timed) Exclusive for Xbox 360

The latest issue of PLAY Magazine sadly reveals that Namco Bandai's upcoming Tales of Vesperia, which is the first Tales game to be made in HD, will be an Xbox 360 exclusive.

PLAY Magazine, being the PLAYSTATION 3 fanatics that they are, interviewed Yoshito Higuchi on why it was exclusive to the Xbox 360. He stated when they started the project, the Xbox 360 had a more complete development environment. When they asked if they would see Tales of Vesperia ported to the PLAYSTATION 3, Higuchi replied with "Yes, I won’t deny the possibility. But we’re not thinking about it yet-there are so many other things to concentrate on first."

This really gets me angry in a way since I'm a huge fan of the Tales series. They will probably port it to the PLAYSTATION 3 when sales don't go so well in Japan.

NAMCO must really hate their Japanese fans. The ones that will ACTUALLY buy this game in large numbers.

It's well known that Microsoft's been throwing money towards Namco for exclusives that Xbox owners aren't really all that interested in, still with the positive effect (for them) of keeping the game off PS3 for a whole. It just seems as though Namco's given up on making money the good old fashioned way - by selling games to those that really want them.

Eternal Sonata failed on 360
Ace Combat 6 failed on 360
Beautiful Katamari failed on 360
Tales of Vesperia will also fail on 360

The "Tales of" franchise is namco's flagship RPG series so i really hope Namco realizes the consequences of putting Japanese franchises on 360.

I like Pirates of the Burning Sea Gold very much, because it is useful. Since I entered into this game, I learnt skills to earn potbs gold. Thanks to potbs Doubloon let me know a lot of friends. It is my habit to buy potbs Doubloon now. I get some potbs money from my friends and Internet.

Do you know buy lindens? I like it.
My brother often go to the internet bar to buy second life linden and play it.
After school, He likes playing games using these cheap linden with his friends.
I do not like to play it. Because I think that it not only costs much money but also spend much time. One day, he give me many linden dollars and play the game with me.
I came to the bar following him and found secondlife money was so cheap. After that, I also go to play game with him.
