Namco Bandai thanks 360 owners for Tales of Vesperia feedback used in PS3 version

In the booklet included with the PlayStation 3 version of Tales of Vesperia in Japan, Namco Bandai issued a message out to Xbox 360 owners thanking them for beta-testing the game in order to create the more complete PlayStation 3 version.

Seriously. The comments include the game’s new voicing, new features and expresses Namco Bandai’s hopes that those who’ve played the Xbox 360 version can now play the PlayStation 3 version.

“Xbox 360 players often complained ‘why aren’t these parts voiced?’, so when making the PS3 version we first set about improving the voicing … As a result, the entire main scenario became fully voiced.”

“We’d be delighted if those who played the Xbox 360 version would play the PS3 version too. Of course the same goes for those playing for the first time.”

“We made a lot of changes we think Xbox 360 players would be sure to appreciate.”

“There are a lot of elements from the Xbox 360 version which were improved, so please give it a try.”

“Based on the feedback so kindly provided by Xbox 360 players, we added a lot of additional elements.”

At least they’re being kind about it. Having completed the Xbox 360 version though, I feel in no way cheated; rather, more excited for this newer version to release in North America.

Thanks, Sankuku Complex. (NSFW)
