Tales of Xillia Collector's Edition
I was so excited when I read that Tales of Xillia will have Collector edition and worth the money from me since I am huge fan of Tales and it have the cd, artbook and the figure of Milla. So yea it is really a great deal for me and to the people who love to play Tales lol.
I know many people wonder which is better... the collector's edition or the limited edition... although the limited edition is cheaper than than the collector's edition and the collector's edition has content that die hard fans want this can give anyone a hard time deciding... so what I figure is to stick with the collector's edition... WHY? because of the Millia statue... where else can one find this 21.5 inch statue in stores (besides ebay, amazon, etc.) the difference may be $40 but that extra $40 won't be so bad after obtaining content that the limited edition lacks to offer... both have a sound track (but the collector's edition might have a few extra tracks) an art book (collector's edition is longer), and the DLC voucher... but in the end it's really if you want the Millia statue or not that matters in deciding which edition to get :P ... one more thing... I've heard speculation that depending if namco gets a decent amount of sales on xillia that more "tales of" games will have a western release or HD remake to the PS3... so please support in buying this game in either edition :D
OMG! A US Collector's Edition; and After so Long!
It's about time we get a good Tales CE. The only two we've had were the Symphonia GCN Console bundle and the Vesperia Metal Tin. I was really sad when the UK got their Graces F bundle and all we got was some DLC costumes for pre-order. As soon as I saw this, I almost had a heart-attack. XD I instantly switched my funds from the standard edition to this. I must admit though, I would've preferred a Jude figure instead of Milla but I can't complain about getting a figure period. ;p It's nothing compared to the Japanese CE's (which I already own X3) but hopefully this means that Namco-Bandai will be more generous to the US in the future. :) All you Tales fans, and even just JRPG fans, need to pre-order this game (standard at least) so they'll see we really want more RPG's! I wanna see Xillia 2 comin' over.
Amazing new Tales game
Tales of Xillia is the most awaited game of the year for me. I've been waiting years, since 2011, and finally 3 days before my birthday, it will be released. I've pre-ordered this amazing Collector's edition every Tales fan, and even if you're not particularly a Tales fan, will ABSOLUTELY LOVE! This is definitely going to be a great game, I hope many people are encouraged to buy this game, it will ultimately lead to more Tales of titles being released in North America. If you're thinking about getting this game you should also get the latest Tales title, Tales of Graces f, which was released last year for the PS3 as well.
Brilliant game with a fantastic sequel!
Tales of Xillia is fantastic game, as a player of the Japanese version, I was so happily surprised that it was mechanically one of the best if not the best Tales game to date. The characters are interesting and each have interesting story lines. Also, Namco might bring Tales of Xillia 2 over here if enough of us buy the first game! ToX2 was incredible as well, the character development between games was really fascinating as well as heartwarming in some cases. The character designs in both games are fantastic as well. ToX2 is really unique and a pleasure to play, let's home we can get it over here too!
Amazing Game from an Amazing Series
I have very high hopes for this game, I have played the Japanese version and I loved it. This game already has a sequel in japan and we will get it if this one sells well! The game has a rich real-time battle system full of fluent combos and it also has an amazing story. Tales games are known for their battle systems and their stories so this one is sure not to disappoint! Go out and pre-order it now! Also, in the meantime pick up the previous game in the series, Tales of Graces, another amazing game that I love to death (I bought my PS3 because of that game),
I first played this game as an import from Japan, and although I pretty much didn't understand anything, I enjoyed the heck out of it. The previous games in the "Tales Of" series have been nothing but excellent, Tales of Xillia comes from the same tales division that worked on Tales of Vesperia (the greatest game ever made, 145 hours on my first playthrough), and Tales of Symphonia. This game will not disappoint, I'm switching my preorder from the normal edition to this collector's edition. I was surprised and incredibly happy that we'd be getting a collector's edition, woot!
Tales Of: The New Final Fantasy
Many people think that JRPG's have either gone stale, or have changed too much over the years, Final Fantasy is a great example of both. While i do prefer a good Turn Based JRPG over anything else, the Tales Of is a great example of trying new things as well as staying grounded in their roots. what makes tales awesome, is the strong cast of characters, great stories, and thrilling combat. if you are looking for a JRPG that does new things but is still very much a JRPG instead of a JRPG that is essentially a WRPG *cough* dragons dogma *cough*
I already got this game about a year or two ago for the Japanese Playstation 3, and I really liked this Tales of... game. Tales of... games are hit and miss but this one was a hit in my book. The splitting the two characters was a little pointless though since 80% is the same, they should've just done like a "mean while..." situation instead. Hoping the Milia statue is good, preordered this for the statue, probably will not play the game since I already platinummed twice on it., FYI, if Xilia 2 is ever announced in USA, I do NOT recommend it, it's horrible.
It's good that NamcoBandai is finally giving it's US fans something like a collectors edition this time.This will be on of the first I have seen for a Tales game. Tales of the Abyss was my first tales game,but I do like Symphonia,Vesperia,and Graces. I switch my pre-order as soon as they put out the Collectors Edition. I'm excited to see how the game will play out. I'm already excited for this and then Xillia 2 when they bring that over.(Which they should.)
