It seems we won’t see pirate Patty or Tales of Vesperia on PlayStation 3. A Namco Bandai community manager in Europe casually mentioned on Facebook “Microsoft paid for exclusivity” for Tales of Vesperia. While the note was written back in April, RPG Site recently dug up the news.
Bummer. On the plus side two Tales games are heading overseas. Tales of the Abyss for Nintendo 3DS is slated for release this year. Tales of Graces f lands on PlayStation 3 sometime in 2012.
Thanks to Linka, PrinceHeir, and everyone else that pinged us with a tip!
