PlayStation 3 owners who also happen to be role-playing fans are finally getting the titles they crave; Demon's Souls , Dragon Age: Origins , White Knight Chronicles , Last Rebellion , Alpha Protocol , and others are on the way.

But let's not forget about Tales of Vesperia , which will finally land on the PS3 after debuting on the Xbox 360. And like Eternal Sonata – which PS3 owners also had to wait a long time for – we'll get a new and improved version, loaded with plenty of exclusive content. If you want to know about that special content, visit Just Push Start ; you will find that new costumes are on tap, along with Secret Artes for both Yuri and Flynn. You'll also be able to play as a team in the Arena Battles (only one character could participate in the 360 version) and you'll even get a shot at the Don while playing as Yuri. All of this will certainly make the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia superior (provided the technical aspects don't suffer in the transition), but unfortunately, it still hasn't been confirmed for North America. We know it'll release in Japan but for a lot of you, that just isn't good enough. Come on, Namco, don't ignore all the RPG fanatics 'round these parts!

But even if it doesn't show up here, we've still got all those RPGs I mentioned earlier, and there's always the importing option for the truly hardcore.

I don't want that on my ps3

If I'm gonna be constantly fighting in the most annoying ways possible I'd rather getr Demon's Soul.

Not saying it's a bad game though.

I bet if it was a PS3 exclusive, you would give them more credit. Star Ocean 4 is a great game anyway you see it.

Well I made it clear that I'm not saying it's a bad game.

Based on the horrible experience Ben had with it I'd rather get Demon's Soul if I'm gonna be constantly fighting.

Well.. I love the Star Ocean universe, it just never disappoints me ^_^

And I like the insane over-the-top JRPG combo chaining battle system. With extra flashy moves once you unlock the secret Ultimate Moves scrolls.

=D

who do i have to kill to get some genre variety in games these days?
seriously look at all the games coming this year and their all either FPS, TPS, racers or RPGs.
i miss the good old PS1 days where we had more platformers than you could shake a stick at.
games like pandemonium or odworld or crash bandicoot or sly cooper or jack an daxter.
now the only platformer i have to look forward to is R&C.
not that i hate FPS and such but lets have some more variety here people.

OMG!!! I could not agree more!!!

While I do love my Killzones and my Resistance games, why not make more platformers?!?! Crash Bandicoot 3 is one of my favourites, and I got it off PSN.

Please announce a Jak and Daxter for PS3 soon Sony, pleeease!!! Variety is good. Look at the success of the Wii and the PS3 now with your lineup.

it is good news for ps3 owners, however, this game is no where near the coming JRPG bunch: Demon's Souls, Resonance of Fate, WKC, FF13, FFv13, and Magna Carta 2 on 360…

In totally unrelated news, we sold about 10 PS3 slim consoles and no Wii or 360 consoles at EB today. We've had about 7 360's traded in towards PS3's in the last week and the numbers continue to grow.

Sony really are climbing back to its dominant status. I still have to conquer the 360 fanboys posing as unbiased retail staff feeding lies and false rumours to undecided customers with little knowledge in the video games entertainment market.

When I tell customers what I've done with my PS3 and 360 to their full capabilities, they immediately buy a PS3. I try to remain as unbiased as possible while at it, but its so hard when PS3 is just so damn good at everything!!!! (save for party chat with friends and in-game music, but theres no doubt an update for those in the works)

I add this information^^
From September 4th through September 7th, an Anime Fest was held in Dallas, Texas for all you Naruto, Bleach and others' fans. Troy Baker, the English voice actor for Yuri Lowell in Tales of Vesperia was attending the event as a guest.

An attendee of the event decided to ask Baker whether or not he knows anything about an English localization for Tales of Vesperia on PlayStation 3, which should be releasing in Japan by next week. While he didn't directly respond, he did say that he and the other voice actors were sent back to do recordings of new moves/artes.

This could possibly be confirmation that they're already working on localizing the PlayStation 3 version of the game. Possibly.

Additional Ps3 Content

* Full voice acting
* Tie-ins with Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike
* New playable character (Patty Fleur)
* Flynn as a fully customizable, playable character
* Repede and Flynn as selectable on-screen avatars
* New cutscenes

* New main game quests
* New sidequests
* New songs
* New towns
* Remodeled towns
* New dungeons
* New bosses (including the Sword Dancer)
* Boss fight replays at Nam Cobanda Isle (in an area called the Door of Memories)
* New Overlimit Levels 5 and 6
* New Hi Ougi/Mystic Artes (including a dual Mystic Arte with Yuri and Flynn)
* New Artes
* New Skills
* New Equipment
* A Key Item known as the Artes Ball, which allows characters to assign up to 8 Artes to the left stick, and 8 Arte Shortcuts to the right stick for a new maximum of 16 Artes.
* New Costumes (Including costumes based on other Tales characters and Sgt. Frog)
* New Skits
* A scene-skip feature
* Connectivity with Tales of VS
* Pre-Order Bonus (Abyss character costumes for Yuri, Flynn, and Estelle)

it pretty long^^

@ sonic1899 – You found the PS3 news interesting because there actually IS news for the PS3. Have you looked up any news for the 360 lately? Nothing but Molyneux's fantasies.

How much you wanna bet any of the timed exclusive RPGs that were on 360 will sell better on the PS3? Including this game.

well most rpg fans are playstation fans so its a no brainer that theyll sell more on ps3. unfortunately, xbox users mainly care about shooters and not much else. it sounds arrogant, but if u own both consoles you'd notice that you'll mainly see other ppl playing gears, halo, or cod. in fact i rarely see other shooters other than those 3
