Time to start pushing the console in the west, Sony. Pretty please.

It's Tales of. They are always coming up with excuses or wanting people to beg.

Tales full year of DLC

If Sony were smart, they'd pay for most or all of the localization costs. If Sony were smart...

He said the Vita is doing poorly in North America, but I thought the Vita's biggest market was actually North America? Unless I've been misreading news in the past wrong, I thought that was one of the reasons for the big price drop in Japan was to push more units there where it was not doing as well. But I could have misinterpreted things.

Vita sales worldwide are poor. Japan has recently had a bump, but thats it.

Well fiddlesticks! I feel terrible for those that won't be able to import due to the language barrier. :-(

I honestly thought with Project X Zone being localized, Bamco would localize both Tales games...

A price reduction in North America would drastically increase sales like it did in Japan. Please do it Sony!

Screw Tales. For the love of Justice, Super Robot Taisen OG series needs to be localized.

Sony hasnt really done much to push the PSP or the vita though in recent years while in japan both are doing much better.

Sony should do something about this,
Tales series localization will lift VITA sales, not only in US but in the worldwide.

That's true too. Just seems like his reason was a cop-out and illogical. If Vita sales are poor worldwide, or even only in one region, why would you bother to make a game for it then and not try to garner as much profit as possible....
