Trusty Bell Pack in Japan

Trusty Bell Pack in Japan

Namco announces the release of a Trusty Bell pack in Japan, planned to hit shelves the 14th of June. The big green box will feature a Core pack, as well as a shiny version of Trusty Bell (named Eternal Sonata in Europe). Too bad we won't ever see this pack outside of Japan.

Look great. Why dont they make a premiun pack with trusty bell? that will be better I think
Commented on 2007-04-11 16:08:50
the standard 360 with hdd & all would be a better idea

You should correct the news, it's named Eternal Sonata in USA, there's no publisher yet of this date who have announced this release in Europe.

I so badly want news about it soon, but I may just end up selling my PAL console, after all Europe is and always bean a third world county when it comes to RPG.

Ummm correct me if i'm wrong but.........

You buy a nice new console bundle, has a great game with it, rush home hook it all up, start playing, go to save your game.........hang on a minute, oh crap I *CAN'T*

Thats a good solution for a cool RPG pack!! At least bundle it with a memory unit, sheesh!

A very good point indeed but guess what ? they did they same thing with Blue Dragon and the bundle sold 80.000 on day one. Im sure they're not idiots they will buy the memory card separately but you're right they should have at least bundled it with the console.

Too bad they won't be able to save their games this way -_-

[edit] ah, seems I'm not the only one who noticed.

Not unless they put a Little Sweet Flower of Nihon in there it still won't sell in Japan.

The question is will anyone outside of Japan actually see the core system past June.
Commented on 2007-04-11 17:58:46

beautiful

I duno why there is so much hate towards the core unit, Some of you guys aren't very bright...

Think about it .. a game with a console at a cheap price..

Or a game with a console at a more expensive price..

Which seems more attractive to a non gamer type ?

Screw the memory card, if they get home and realise they can't save their game then its back to the games store.

Yeah, and no one will ever make that mistake again :)

Nah, I'm just kidding.

At first glance I thought that 360 in that bundle picture look slightly different from my 360 (besides from that mysterious scratch of mine). Then I realized that the hdd takes a way a lot of 360s glory. Damn, I should have bought myself a core

Edit: Man, I'm stupid. Took another look at the picture. It isn't the hdd, it is the white tray. That makes the different. It looks totally hot. Damn, I want one.

Chrome hater! :)
Commented on 2007-04-11 19:36:19
I think the white tray looks better than the chrome also.
Commented on 2007-04-11 20:13:11
My brother has a core, at least his tray isnt covered in finger prints and grubby marks like mine :(
Commented on 2007-04-11 20:33:16
my tray is white, because i bought a core, but i have a premium setup..i also prefer the all white look :)
Commented on 2007-04-11 20:35:14
Just wondering, would this game look nice even on a SDtv... Some titles look amazing even on SD, others not so much. And this game looks beatiful in the HD shots, hope its also nice on an SD.
Commented on 2007-04-11 21:24:27
<-------

Golden tray is the best. ;)

I think Microsoft missed the golden opportunity, because there will be, yet again, chrome tray in Xbox 360 Elite. :/

I don't know how much I Trusty Japan with my Balls. I just hope they buy our Trusty Balls in great haste, and in large amounts. I mean Bells...I kid.

When I got a Playstation + FFVII for xmas all those many years ago, I hadn't asked for a memory card as well.. so I couldn't save until the stores opened up again a few days later.

I mean, coming from a SNES, having the saving ability built in or included one way or another just made sense. Buying memory cards? Whats that?

If I had friends with Playstations at the time I would have known better...

By the time I had a memory card I was doing speed runs of FFVII and getting pretty far in before dying, well beyond the collapse of the tower and leaving the city.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
