almost a years wait and it doesnt look like anything extra is going to be on the disc..nice.

Be interesting to see if it hits the ps3 by the end of the year with the standard additional contents for the extra wait

About time.
And they spend all this time so well doing absolutely NOTHING! – They don’t even mention any (for me unnecessary) localization efforts… I can’t thank these fucking idiots at Bandai/Namco enough…

they probably started dragging their feet after the game has gotten burned in sales. After all the hype of how "Vesperia broke MS into the Japanese market!" its final tally after that first week has been fairly mediocre. Considering Blue Dragon didn't actually break them into the market and Vesperia ended up still selling less than BD, i think ppl really need to update their views on how well it did there.
Then come to the US, it fairly predictably (if you actually know how well the Tales series has ever performed here and don't just go "its an anime game, all the anime fanboys will buy it!!!!") didn't sell as well as Namco probably hoped it would.
With the EU release they have a chance of barely hitting their 500k goal, but they be betting on pretty incredible sales from a region where jrpg interest has dipped lower than the US.

in short, Namco's bummed and dragging their feet.

all said, a shame, because its a damn good game.

Yhea makes sense.
Doesn't sale as we expect in territory one and two, just forget about selling in #3.

Total sense. *really not sarcastic*

*or am I*

Meh too long of a wait since the us launched not interested now will give it a miss

That's unfortunate.

You should give it a whirl; I mean who cares about what the US plays?

I surely don't care about what Japan or Europe plays.

Well according to a spanish source the EU version features two languages: Japanese and English

At least something (afaik the US version only features English) for the longer wait but hardly compensative.

About the game

    GriftGFX Not sure they would have downgraded for performance... it's a 2007 Source game. It already has a wide performance profile. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: What Aphex said + they converted content to a new format and probably got lazy. It probably doesn't have the same sized team it did in development. (15 minutes ago)

    aphex187 meaning certain aspects of the game had to be downgraded. (26 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @KORNdog: i think it's more to do with how much extra they have added since the game launched (27 minutes ago)
