NO...NAMCO BANDAI are Idiots, SEGA is just goofy
The light at the end of the tunnel for Namco Bandai is that since their purchase of D3 Publisher, D3 USA has actually broken through the stupid and started picking up their handheld games (Blue Dragon DS, God Eater). I'm praying D3 USA decides to look into their back catalogue and bring more stuff like Game Center CX2, Tales of Hearts or Radiant Mythology 2.
PS3 Tales are still probably out of luck though. Sorry guys. :/
you were sounding bright intill the very end..u are aware NB has start localisation as found in the demo code and the actors confirming it right?
I'm aware that's been discredited. The "actor confirmation" (Troy Baker) was most likely referring to reprising Yuri's role for artes in Tales of Vs, and that the rest of the voice cast said they haven't been contracted when asked. There's a lot of misinformation going on.
I don't think it's an impossible scenario and it may still come with enough fan outcry, but the game at least before release wasn't planned for the west (unlike Vesperia, and Graces, which both contain staff credits to "localization staff"), and I haven't really heard anything since to imply otherwise. In fact, one of the staff at 8-4 (who currently localizes the Tales games for Namco, and even did Vesperia 360) strongly implied Vesperia PS3 wasn't going to happen due to production costs on the new content. :/
