    No! I guess I shouldn't expect it to come to the Wii since it's getting a sequel to Symphonia. But still? Why the PS3? [​IMG]

    As much as I dislike Sony and the PS3 at the moment, I do acknowledge that it has the potential. Especially in a cell-shaded Tales game if they get the shading engine down. Lack of "jaggies" due to a high resolution would definitely make the entire thing look a lot better.

    If any game could make me get a PS3 it's a well done Tales game.

    ...

    In a way, I kind of hope it isn't good...because getting a PS3 is still awfully pricey. XD

    Aww [​IMG]

    No way I'm picking up a PS3 just for Tales, but it would be nice if it also came out on 360.

    There are also some rumors that this game is for the Xbox 360.
    But again, it are all rumors, nothing is for sure.

    I loved Tales of Phantasia on the SNES (I used the DeJap translation), but I really didn't like the 2 games after that (Tales of Destiny 1 and 2). Are the more recent Tales of games any good?

    Tales of Innocence (J) for the DS is really good.
    Tales of the Tempest (J) for the DS is not that good, but not bad either.

    IMO tempest is horrendous

    Symphonia for GC was nice, so was Abyss for PS2, Legendia is worth a look but not that wonderful

    Symphonia was cool. Abyss is probably my favorite of all of em though.

    It's coming to 360, PS3 probably too.

    Do I really have to buy a PS3 just to play this? D:
    Judging by those screens the graphics are practically cell-shaded. >_>

    Awesome looking game!

    I like most of the Tales games so I'll be picking this one up no matter what platform it comes out on.

    I liked Phantasia, but I think a lot of that came from the horrendously over-the-top fan translation that poked fun of itself (pretentiousness and JRPGs normally go hand in hand). Symphonia was pretty meh. And if this is in the same vain as that there's no chance of me ever touching it.

    Also, I've promised myself not to bother with games that stretch out to more than 30 hours, unless they manage to fill the playtime with something worthwhile (hint: endless grinding is not my idea of 'worthwhile').

    Edit:

    Ehm, high(er) resolution(s) do not take away "jaggies" - if anything, they magnify them. Anti-aliasing however does.

    I wasn't talking about those jaggies, haha.

    I meant the jaggies on the edges of models due to fewer pixels to render on which are most noticible on rounded edges and such.
    You can't tell me you don't notice it going from say, 640x480 to 1280x1024+.
    AA certainly helps to smooth those out on lower resolutions though.

    Anyway, the game looks pretty enough from the shots and video...but not enough so to justify the PS3 purchase.
    Maybe when everything gets cheaper or it's ported somewhere else...
