Is the new Tales game for the PS3 is being developed by Team Symphonia or Team Destiny?
And I feel bad for not having any current-gen home console. I really wish to get both PS3 and X360. So. Much. Games. I. Want.
Destiny did the last one, so I'm assuming that the new one will be done by Team Symphonia.

yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Team Symphonia > Team Destiny

Team Destiny is responsible for the best games in the series: Tales of Destiny II(PS2), Tales of Rebirth and Tales of Destiny Remake. Team Symphonia only made the crappy 3D Tales games. So, it`s actually Team Destiny > Team Symphonia.....  IMHO.

They also made the worst. I feel Symphonia has, overall, a much higher standard.

Rebirth was just flat out...weird, to me.  Destiny II felt too much like a sequel, and looking at Reala all the time is worse than playing Silent Hill.  Destiny Remake...okay, you got me there.  But speaking Symphonia sports a generally fleshed-out cast, and Abyss a deep one - I can't really say I prefer team Destiny.

Which one is responsible for legendia? I said so before, but that almost killed the series for me. I'm sure a lot of people passed on abyss as a direct result of it. I almost did, only reluctantly buying it months after release because I had people here to tell me it didn't suck.

Neither, it was a new team that I think was composed of Soul Calibur staff.

There is a high chance that Tales of Grace on the PS3 won't get a localization.

The other original Tales on PS3 will probably get an Xbox port and reach a sizeable audience in the West.

Why's that?
I don't doubt it, instinctually, but you say it so a-matter-of-fact-ish. =(

EDIT:  Actually, let me correct that.  I *don't* know instinctually...it's a self defense mechanism that is triggering because I don't want to be disappointed.  So I deny the possibility of a stateside release so I look like "=D" all the time.

Destiny team games traditionally get the shaft. Before it's been because their games have always been 2D, but with Tales games doing so crappily in the US I'd be surprised if any got localized anymore.

I never understood that... especially with the way NISA games sell (waaaaay worse).

Namco Bandai has different standards than an outfit like NISA.  NISA knows their games and niche and aren't going to sell that many copies so they keep their costs in line with those expectations.  It's possible for them to eek out a small profit that way and stay in business but they're never going to be rich.

Namco Bandai is a much, much larger company and for them Tales is one of their key franchises...at least in Japan.  Because the games do well in Japan they have, perhaps, unrealistic expectations of how they 'should' sell in the US.  Since those expectations generally aren't met they don't consider it worth the effort.  True they could try do things the way NISA does, keeping costs to a minimum, but for a large company the potential profit from doing that isn't worth the opportunity cost.  They'd rather have their people working on things that will get them more money.

At the same time they are very controlling of the franchise because it is big (at least in Japan...) and they don't want to just hand the localization effort over to a third party for a quick buck.  I honestly can't say that there isn't some logic behind all of this but the end result--not having the games localized at all--sucks for us.

I've only got a Wii for now but want to get a PS3 based on the JRPGs that are out now and forthcoming.   I've never played a Tales game before but sounds like something I'd like!

Good stuff.

I hope they just keep brining out the new stuff over here first before doing translations for older titles.
