Videos of Tales of Vesperia

We can't stop Namco-Bandai, who releases no less than five clips from the english version of Tales of Vesperia, about one minute each. Visually, it oscillates between average and really nice.

Has this game been announced for the PS3? I don't think so. Regardless, I'm picking up this game when its released for the 360 in August.

No. A separate Tales game for the PS3 has been hinted (well teased) by Famitsu which is supposed to be announced at E3. Apparently, Namco Bandai is giving exclusive Tales titles to the 360, PS3, and Wii which means Tales fans who own all three get to buy all three! Smartest way to milk a franchise IMO. You get none of the sloppy seconds effect/comparison of multiplat titles with all the additional revenue.

I can't say I liked anything about the demo. Not holding my breath for the PS3 Tales either.

looks good, except the overworld, which looks very basic

That probably hints at a large world map.

I'm a little disappointed that other than Gears of War 2 the only real exclusives the 360 is getting for the forseeable future are anime games. It's nice they got the cartoon look and artstyle perfected with these games but i was expecting some more adult games on the Xbox.

Well thats too bad, but there are plenty of "Adult" games on the 360.

Sadly it's this sort of opinion that means great games like Viva Pinata and Kameo don't reach their sales potential...
If 360 is to branch out then it needs games like this. Shooters and racers have taken 360 as far as they can. Now it's time to put some effort into other genre's such as RPG, platform, RTS, sims etc...

I'd love to see another Kameo! I'm usually not into these rich in colour/childish games, but Kameo was fantastic imo! Hope there will be a Kameo2

I can't wait for the new Banji ;). I know offtopic, but it look so great. As does this title and Star Ocean 4 :D.

As an adult, I don't care how a game looks, all I care about is how it plays. Really, there have been some very good cel/toon shaded games, like Okami, Wind Waker, and Team Fortress 2. You should try a few out.

It's weird that Namco's SECOND cell shaded game is proving to be the worser visually.

That said, I love me my Tales.
