Tales of Graces F, sometime in early 2012, and Tales of the Abyss 3DS, later this year.

I was gonna import Xillia but I have to spend so much on school this semester. :( Oh well, it won't be here in the US until 2013 at the earliest so I still have plenty of time to buy it.

Game sold 274k on the first day, not too shabby.
The game shipped 500k on the first day and another 100k on the second, they'll probably sell most of it by the end of the week. I'm curious to see how it affected PS3 sales.
Currently playing: Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, Team ICO Collection, Atelier Totori, Child of eden.

Yeah, seeing those numbers, I kinda understood why Bamco says US sales are crap. I don't think we'll ever equal those numbers.

I got it Friday, it's a fun game.  I'm enjoying it a lot.  The loading times, so far, have been really fast thanks to the disk install.  I'm diggin the battle system more than Graces F so far.  There is MP again and spells can be charged to do more damage for a longer cast time.  Haven't played around with Jude's healing spell, but it's different than previous games.  It's either self only or it's an aura-range based.  Perhaps I will look to see what it says when I turn it on next =P

I'm diggin' the free dynamic PS3 theme.  I wish the icons stood out more, but a small nitpick.

It sold 525k in the first week... How do you say holy shit in japanese?

Edit: in case anyone was wondering, the game pushed PS3 sales to 64.786 up from 33.831 on the previous week.

So all in all this was a pretty big deal, they are probably wishing they had released a new Tales on the PS3 sooner.

This graph is pretty awesome and really shows that the PS3 should've been their priority for this franchise:



- Highest first week for a Tales game ever.
- ToV and ToG sold more on PS3 than on the 360 and wii despite the delay.
- ToX first week sales are almost as high as total sales for the previous games on both systems.

Sorry if this has been discussed already, didnt want to read through all the pages: Will Graces F and/or Xillia come to the US/EU? If so, when?

Graces F was announced a long time ago for next year. NA/EU. Xillia, nothing yet.

Why is Symphonia suspiciously missing from the graph, wasn't it the best selling Tales game of all time?

Namco-Bandai, or Bandai-Namco or whatever the hell they're called in Europe actually showed off the game at an anime convention there I think, so I think there is a slim chance we could see that one, even if it's just in Europe (and the PS3 isn't region-coded, so...).

Xillia will be released here.  I have no basis for this statement other than the fact that Xillia is both the highest rated and fastest selling Tales game ever.  It's not some obscure entry in the franchise.  Unless Namco Bandai wants to abandon the series in the west entirely they're going to localize Xillia.

That said, Graces f still isn't even out yet so they're not going to want to start hyping Xillia already.  I seriously doubt there will be any kind of official announcement until after Graces f is released.

But I will bet $100 that there will be a Xillia localization announcement before the end of 2012.  I'm dead serious about that if anyone wants to take me up on it.

Even though it sold really well over Japan, Bandai Namco is so surely still thinking we Americans aren't hardcore enough to buy lots of copies.

That or the game is way too Japanese for our limit to stand Japanese games they believe we have.
