I played Vesperia PS3, you're really not missing that much.

I wonder how many of the people whining about it would actually buy it if it came out today...

I agree, the improvements on the PS3 are minimal.  Buut a few things to remember:
(1a) Not everyone has an XBox
(1b) Some have dead Xbox's now that won't play Vesperia360 anymore

(2) We've been pretty teased and strung along like a crush that won't stop flirting with you but doesn't want anything to do with you (like FilthieRich using the VespPS3 logo to his Graces teaser image; apparently additional voicework was on the 360 game and Troy Baker saying it was good to go; and that recent Playstation poll putting VesPS3 in its "RPG" category as an example for "what genres we want to see")

(3) It really hurts because it was almost *disturbingly* obvious that something was missing in Vesp360 (see bright red arrows)

(4) The Vita "efforts" for the DS "remakes" have been really bad.  At their best, they provide good nostalgia in a slightly updated form; and their worst, they look, play, and feel like they've been outsourced titles (which they are).  I think Innocence-R may actually hurt the brand on Western shores, while Hearts-R made a few questionable decisions about what was changed up.


Word around the campfire is thinking the "secret announcement" is about Xillia 2; which might make sense as far as getting voice actors back to reprise their roles (just get it all done while doing voices for Xill1), but may be too soon.

Actually I've been playing Hearts R. Innocence R was dialed in at best but Hearts R is actually pretty decent! Hell, they actually spent some time on the game!

Don't get me wrong. It's no Xillia, or Vesperia. But damn if it isn't worth the money I paid for it, unlike Innocence R.

It's one of those things where if I had to choose between having the mediocre remake or not at all, I'd go for the remake. But Hearts is the one I really want to try.

August 6th, apparently.

Which is sucky.  Why developers don't try to consciously release titles at the begining of summer (y'know, when their demographic is done with school) than the tail end or later is beyond me.

Also, while I'm not sure about the process of translating games -- this kinda sucks too because the voicework was completed way back in November.

Anyways, I like he gum drop analogy.

Actually I think releasing in August is brilliant. Their one success other than Symphonia was released late summer. It's because people are having a summer drought and really want a new game to play and releasing it in August is like giving a guy a bottle of water after three days in the desert.

So what was the secret announcement in the end?

^I think it was the voice actor reveal, the Milla figure (Ichibichan's, not ALter), and that they're keeping "Progress" in... yeah.

For a "Tales-filled year", we're not getting the Vita titles (personally, I thought it was a smart move), but I just wonder what we're gonna see...  Xillia 2? 

I'd like more PSN support, I guess.

Or Vesperia 2 announcement :D (given the abrupt, one-minute ending of the first title, if they're "cool" with making sequels, and I guess it would be "cheap" too if they reuse some resources).

Ho-hum.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were localizing Xillia 2 in parallel with Xillia (after all, many of the voice actors are the same) so "Tales-filled year" could imply a Xillia 2 release later this year...one can always hope, anyway.

I think it makes the most sense too.  I'd go so far as to think they may have Xill2 voice acting done while they could get a hold of the vice actors or schedule them again or something *shrug*

I triple checked and every gamestop still has it listed for july with not so much as a whisper of a delay abound... I'm hoping for july personally to put some distance between this and some of the stuff I'm looking forward to in the fall.

Namco Bandai said August 6th themselves at a media event last week.  Maybe Gamestop should talk to them...

Kevaude heard (read) the same thing I did, so I'm inclined to go with that. Even so, August 6th is a FUCKTON faster than I expected.

Gamestop's generally retarded btw, as shown by my horrible experience with MGR Revengeance. I still am bittered by this.

August 6th is fast?  That's nearly two years since it came out in Japan...
