Walking around the streets of Akihabara, you'd be hard pressed to find a copy of Tales of Vesperia
for PS3. Why? The game has sold over 140,000 units in one day, according to initial reports
from Japan. Already, that's more than the first month
of sales for the original Xbox 360 version, and nearly equal to the lifetime sales
for that version. The promise of added content
and being on a system that Japanese people actually own
both contributed favorably to Namco Bandai's sales.
While Namco Bandai must be pleased with the money it's raking in (from yesterday's sales, and from Microsoft
), the publisher has yet to announce a US release for Vesperia
PS3. We think there are a lot
of new PS3 owners that would love to check out the game on Sony's console.
