If you are expecting some 'revolutionary' improvements, you will get disappointed, but it's still a typical and good 'Tales of' RPG

One good thing about RPGs is they can avoid being revolutionary and still be great games. Dragon Quest is a good series that has stayed to mostly the same formula until recently, and thankfully the Tales series has not revolutionized its formula, like Final Fantasy. This is just my personal opinion though.

Try as I may, I was not able to get into Final Fantasy XIII or XIII-2. I played through all of XIII including most of the post-game content (hunts) and about half of FFXIII-2. Graphics and changes are not everything if it ruins the enjoyment of the gaming experience.

I am sure I will still think Vesperia is the best Tales game but I'm sure I will enjoy this nonetheless.

I thought Symphonia was the best Tales, still hurts that Vesperia was not released on the PS3, maybe if Xillia does well enough. I can keep dreaming I mean the translation is already there right and the game is already in Japan.

i actually really enjoyed tales of symphonia 2 because they kept a journal of where to go next (although graces let you press L1 for the next objective). In the first ToS i remember playing to about 35 hours in and then i put the game down for a year and came back wandering around the world map for 3.5 hours straight wondering where i left off but could never figure it out so i never ended up beating it :'(. Even though the foundation doesn't change, they still manage to improve the game every time.

Tales of Symphonia DOES have a record of your journey. It's the synopsis, which is located in your main menu--Tales of Vesperia has it too, as with all other "Tales of" games. Symphonia 2 simply changed it from "Synopsis" to Emil and Marta writing to each other and documenting their experiences.

From what I have read about the Vesperia PS3, it won't be happening any time soon. Xbox has paid Namco Bandai to make sure it does not get released for the PS3 in America, why you ask? Because PS3 decided to pay to make Heavy Rain a PS3 exclusive.

Now I am curious Mikey, as far as I understand HRs developer is 2nd party meaning they are not owned by Sony but only make games for its consoles so not sure how that is related to a Namco release. I mean I understand they both play the exclusive game but not sure why you refer to that game in particular is there an article or something you can share with us?

Well Sony and Microsoft can actually keep a game exclusive for some time if they pay enough money. Now the original article that i found, i am terribly sorry, i cannot find. I originally read the article in summer of 2012 because i had some money and decided to look into if i should just wait for a PS3 release or buy an xbox and get vesperia. Now i found these articles relating to Microsoft's exclusivity here:

http://www.siliconera.com/2011/06/19/apparently-tales-of-vesperia-is-an-xbox-360-exclusive/
and here:
http://www.destructoid.com/what-no-plans-for-a-tales-of-vesperia-ps3-us-release--161856.phtml

But since looking for the information i found something that has made me have hope after all:
Here is saying that Namco is probably actually using the money for exclusivity in order to make the PS3 version
http://www.destructoid.com/namco-using-microsoft-money-to-fund-ps3-vesperia--148884.phtml
And better yet here it says that the exclusivity was all a mistake made by a Namco Bandai community manager who didn't have the correct information.
http://www.siliconera.com/2011/06/27/tales-of-vesperia-isnt-part-of-an-xbox-360-exclusivity-deal-after-all/

Sorry if i got your hopes down, but thanks for making me look for the article again, even though i own the xbox version i will gladly buy the PS3 version if it ever comes out, and it probably will....someday.

Thanks a lot Mikey, lets be hopeful as the PS3 version is supposed to have some extra content, sorry you went searching for the article maybe QT went 2nd party around that time.

No need for the sorry. I found some hopeful information. I might pass tales of vesperia on the Xbox before the ps3 one comes out but the ps3 one is an F so a lot of extra will be put into it. If you wouldn't have asked for the link I would have always had it in my mind that all hope is lost, now I have some hope back that it will come out for the ps3.
