uh huh...because PS4 certainly had no ports of older in its first two years (you know, except for Uncharted collection, God of War 3, GTA V, Tearaway, The Last of US, Gravity Rush, etc) and Switch has not had any news games at all in its first two years (you know except for ARMS, Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Kirby Star Allies, Pokemon Let's Go, Octopath Traveller, etc).

Honestly, I find it interesting that Switch becomes the "console of ported old game" when a good number of other systems have and continue to receive ports alongside new games, particularly in the early stages of their life. This continued release of older ports on all systems is reinforced by the fact that consumers seem to be responding positively to them. If this game comes to Switch it is also likely to come to PS4 as well (unless Nintendo paid for it). Making ports of older games a part of the library is hardly a Nintendo-exclsuive thing. 

EDIT: Removed double listing of Octopath Traveller, and apparently Soul Sacrifice Delta never came to PS4 and I removed Heavy Rain was ported in 2016 (outside of the two year window).

To be fair, back in the day the PS4 was absolutely declared Portstation. It blew my mind, how games that were just a year or two before released like GTAV, Tomb Raider, TLOU and so on were declared as reasons to get a PS4. A friend of mine literally told me, he rebought a game (I forgot which one) with his new PS4, so that he had to play something at the first time.

But as it happened again with Switch I was prepared. And in the meantime I had understood, that such ports can hold great value for buyers and for the library.

Personally, I don't mind at all so long as new games are also released (both Switch and PS4 have a good number of new games). On Switch, I love being able to play games on the go (in fact that is how I mostly play as I do not have as much time as I used to to dedicate to TV, hence why Switch and other portables are quite important to me) so even ports, remakes, and remasters of older games are great additions (particularly since there are many I have missed out on as I did not have time to play them on home consoles). And of course, the PS4, IMO, has one of the best libraries of all time because of great number newer and older titles that are brought back to life with the PS4's stronger hardware.



Around the Network

On topic of the rumor. How does Tales of Vesperia compare to other Tales games? My gold standard is Tales of Symphonia but I also liked Zestiria.



Do it Namco.

Wouldn't mind double dipping this one for the extra PS3 content, plus finally giving a chance to my Tales of buddies to play it (And gush about Ristelle with Mike).



I hope it's not exclusive to any platform. Was originally released on Xbox, had a release on ps3 and with ps4 being the most successful console it would be dumb not having it there, same with Switch being a huge success, specially in japan



Among my favorite Tales games, I hope more people get to experience after PS3 version stayed in Japan.

Many fans consider Vesperia to either be the best or very close to the best of the series. Personally I think it's one of the best too. If you enjoyed Symphonia then it's pretty similar to that, just a slight evolution along the same lines.

Should play more games in the series

Vesperia is my favorite and one of the 3 in the series to be great imo.

Hope it comes to xbox one (wont get my hopes up) would explain why they refuse to add ToV to BC

If there was any situation where one of these games should be on Xbox One, it's this one. Since Vesperia was originally an Xbox exclusive outside of Japan.

It's my understanding that Microsoft paid for the expenses of the English dub of Vesperia in exchange for the 1 year timed exclusivity in Japan and full exclusivity in the west. So, depending on the exact details of the contract, Namco would in theory have to either pay to redub the game, or release the remaster on Xbox One.

How can you possibly have enjoyed Symphonia AND Zestiria? They are polar opposites in terms of game pace. I just can't tell at all what you apreciate from that, but it's likely you will enjoy Vesperia because it's awesome in the same vein Symphonia and Abyss are. Great pace, story, dungeons and characters with the classic and awesome 2D style trademark combat that made the series a hit. I'm dumbfounded on how you could have enjoyed Zestiria after playing Symphonia. I really am.
