  • Months old Tales of Vesperia demo "exclusive to OXM"

    Not quite sure what’s going on here, but OXM’s claimed that it’s got the “exclusive” on the Tales of Vesperia demo for its October issue out September 4. We’re assuming this is the same demo released in Asia in June and the rest of the 360-playing world in July, but we may be wrong. We’ll […]

  • Xbox 360 completely sold-out in Japan until next month

    We still don’t believe it either; but thanks to Tales of Vesperia’s hand-over-foot money grabbing techniques, there are no more Xbox 360s on Japanese shelves. None.

  • Shock: Japanese Xbox 360 exclusive release draws 100 person line

    It’s the small victories that count, right? Microsoft can’t even give Xbox 360’s away in Japan, but the few who actually purchased Microsoft’s sadly neglected console seem to be an excitable bunch, gladly lining up for the launch of 360-exclusive RPG Tales of Vesperia. According to Kotaku, Vesperia released to a queue of roughly 100 […]

  • Tales of Vesperia movies show combat and talking

    After the break. Read our impressions of the Namco RPG’s demo here. Then send us emails boohooing about how we’re clearly mad that we don’t think it’s likely to be the best game ever. Be sure to put “lol” in them.

  • Tales of Vesperia confirmed for 360

    So says this. Apparently Namco announced an Xbox 360 version in an interview with Famitsu, but didn’t say where it was going to be released.
