So far Tales of Vesperia DLC is free

Namco Bandai isn’t shy about adding downloadable content to their Xbox 360 games. In the case of [email protected] it’s excessive, but the publisher is giving Tales fans a break. Four packs of Tales of Vesperia downloadable content are sitting on the Japan’s Xbox Live Marketplace which instantly gives players a set of restorative gummies, ingredients for item synthesis, and skills for the two main characters.


Yuri’s trial skill set gives him adds strength, vitality, recovering , item slot, backstep, and image training. Estelle’s downloadable content contains defend, resist, recovering, item slot, image training, and backstep, I’m not quite sure if these are actual abilities or stat boosts, but this is a translated item from Xbox Live. Namco Bandai listed this is a “trial” set of skills too, which could mean these “skills” may be consumable. Oh well, at least these items are all free to Gold Xbox Live members now and should be gratis to Silver Xbox Live members in the future. Enjoy this while it last because future Tales of Vesperia downloadable content probably will cost money.

    This is exactly the reason I won’t buy anything from Namco/Bandai anymore. Seriously people, day one dlc? Something is wrong here. Things like this are already making me seriously consider if I will even bother with the next generation of consoles. People don’t pay $60 just to be told that they only bought 75% of the game.

    Interesting news. Sometimes these DLCs looks like they’re patches/bugfixes to add missing stuffs. Every DLC should be free… it’s like Daizyujin said.

    They’re going to make you pay for game bonuses now? Is there any industry in the world that isn’t getting exponentially sleazier?

  • PseudoKirby

    Daizyujin, dont be a dumb ass, stop complaining about FREE DLC

    and do you seem to forget that there is such a thing as a game going gold, so for the 2 weeks to a month from the moment they finalize a game to when they finish printing enough copies of the game for a release they might come up with some quick DLC…. BIG DEAL… sheesh
