Tales of Vesperia now available in games on demand.

#1 Edited by JoMate (241 posts) -

So I have been trying to get this game somewhere for anything lower than 60 euros but since they stopped producing this game (the physical disc) that was simply impossible. Today though it was, I turned on my xbox to play some me2 but than I saw this game in games on demand so my plans were changed.

Just wanted to let you guys know about it, ow and always be testing.


Edit: Sorry forgot about the pricing but it is 30€, 30$ and 20 pounds.

Good to know. Took me forever to find a copy of that game the first time... Replacement copy was even harder to find.

I traded my brother's copy for Valkyria Chronicles with Rhaknar from this site.


He was pissed.

Considering Valkyria Chronicles is about £10 in the UK, I would be to. =D

Great news! Will be getting this.

Missed out on a physical copy back on release and current prices for pre-owned copies are at least triple the Games on Demand price.

Price announced?

Just wish they'd release the PS3 version =/ Supposed to have an insane amount of extras (more Flynn!), costumes, a whole new character, bosses, titles and essentially just a lot more of Vesperia.

@Fallen189: £19.99 / $29.99

It's a really good game but it is probably cheaper 'used' online.

@JasonR86: 
That is the point it is not, just trying to find a copy that was for sale under 60 bucks or even at 60 was close to imposible.

@JoMate: 


Through Amazon itself it is $24.99 (about the same price after S&H), used at $23.00 (about the same price after S&H) and new at $19.92 from a second party distributer.

It's $32.99 on gamestop's website (about the same price).  


Lowest price at $20 at a site called Glyde.

So, it is available at, or below, the digital download site.  It's still cool it is available this way but I'm not sure it is as hard to find as it may have been at one point.

More and more it looks like you americans live in a completly different world. While you can get it everywhere, in europe it is even rare to find the game on ebay and if you do find it it goes away for at least 70 euros which is like 80/85 dollars.

@JoMate:
Oh, sorry man.  One thing about these forums is that I assume everyone is from the same area I am.  That sucks about used games in Europe.  Games are that expensive used on Amazon and through google/shopping?

It really is. It's got a bunch of cliche's still, as does all tales games, but the characters are amazing. Yuri is probably one of the top 5 JRPG protagonists ever.

Thank God no, it is just this one because they stopped producing the physicall disks fairly soon but I guess they made a whole lot more ntsc disc than pal versions. Usually a game this old sells the same way, or cheaper, as tales does in america.

Man, I might just pick this up again now that it's on games on demand. Such an awesome game.

#19 Posted by Rudeboy217 (1766 posts) -

I like how I got the limited edition with metal box and cd and I still haven't finished the game.

#20 Posted by yoshimitz707 (2450 posts) -
@rudeboy217: Get on that!
#21 Posted by biospank (648 posts) -

I will buy this even if I got a new copy for ps3(japanese version) and 360

#22 Posted by Rudeboy217 (1766 posts) -
@yoshimitz707: Soon, very soon.

It's the reverse for Valkyria Chronicles by the sounds of it. We get that for around £10 here whereas it's a bit more difficult to get a hold of in the US.

It's too bad when they finally got a Tales game so right, when they decided to do a more complete edition that added tons of content and polish, they just whiff and make it Japan and PS3 exclusive. Goddammit.  
 
Anyway, I would recommend this for anyone who wants a good, fun action RPG.

Definitely one of those games I was glad I grabbed at launch. I really should finish it though, it's one of the better Tales games I'd say.

Man, I got to the last dungeon of this and just stopped for some reason. Should go back and finish that up at some point.

I did this exact thing in Tales of Symphonia! I was literally at the save point that's right before the big door to the last boss.

I realized I was increasingly not really invested in the story, and that I probably didn't actually get the intricacies of the battle system. I only stumbled into a few of the...Unison Attacks. I don't think I used a guide for the game at all (this was back in early high school for me), and it strikes me as the sort of game where that is probably not the way to go.

I think I got through a lot of boss fights by just binding Nurse (a heal all spell) to a button and spamming it a lot, and then just kind of mashing every boss to death. I think the whole Tales series may just not be for me, especially because I don't particularly like fighting games.
