idk if it's true or not but as i was googling tales of xillia i saw that it popped up "Tales of xillia 2 on ps4" so i typed it in and saw that they bring xillia 2 on ps4 but maybe not bundled with xillia 1 which to me is dumb i feel that they should bundle both xillia titles since it is the end of ps4 within the next 1-2 year cycle. so why Bandai namco just do like they before announce 2-3 tales of games at the sametime and release them a few months after eachother. i feel it would be good idea to release for example

1) tales of xillia collection
2) Tales of Crestoria
3) tales of whatever they call it for ps4,xbox1,nintendo

since basically xillia is just remaster version so can just be redone for ps4. all they need to is get the ok for just adding part 1 with part 2 to make it a bundled set like whats the point of making part 2 without part 1. or not dropping both together instead of 1 then the other a few months after? which would be stupid to do in my opinion for that just bundle it as a set for $59.99 which would be $30 each. now with deluxe edition with watch and artbook and soundtracks cool but again this all my opinion if they would release xillia 2 for ps4 that they should release it together as a bundle set collection for tales of xillia.

what you guys/gals think? are the rumors true is tales of xillia 2 for ps4? or do you feel they should bundle it as well? or pull an old trick out of their hats by releasing 2-3 tales of titles in order make tales series more $ and fresh like making a remastered title and then release a newier title then a moblie title in order keep fans happy before the new console generations begin with ps5 and xbox2 within the next year.

They just need to release a new main entry for the PS4 already and leave Xillia games exclusive to PS3. Anyone who want to play them should just play them on PS3, simple as that. These so-called "remasters" are the real pain for this console generation, most of PS4's library consists of them at this point, it's just ridiculous and hilarious at the same time.

i agree to some extent. but like old film's and tv show's the reason for remasters and reboots are because some of the original files get older get lost and can't be remade or shown cause newier generation's consoles won't be able to play the games or they won't look right. yet aslong theres a demand for them that's what really matters.

for example look at. doctor who's reboot season 9- to current at the moment yes the show is amazing yet there's a demand for the original 1960's version to be on bluray and i doubt it'll be out due to making it look sharper and clearer same as the dbz nonsense on dvd-bluray how it doesn't look like how was shown on tv back when it was out in the late 1980's-2000's.(depending if you seen the official japanese ver. ti'll it came to here to the west)

so hence why it should be easier to drop collection edition's from past tales series cause they are mid-modern classics and as you said yeah is problem but that's bamco fault instead of releasing just a rerelease of these games and just drop them as they were and just add both dubbed dialogue and that's is it like snk does dropped old kof arcade version of simulated games then bring out big triple A games like kof 14. now tales of berseria is a great game but like zestira both these could've use abit more depth in them like the classics of tales. which is why i believe if they drop the classic versions or mid-modern versions like xillia they will do well as a collection. and since we got the ok basically of ps5 being backwards compatible with ps4 it'll give them more time to focus onto a bigger triple A game for ps4/ps5 game.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for real remasters of classic PS2, PSone or PSP Tales of games like Abyss, Legendia, Eternia, Destiny etc. But those games would need a lot of work to be remastered in HD so it's highly unlikely that Bamco would bother remastering those. Xillia games, on the other hand, are already in HD and need just some quick minor make-up tweaks to look like current gen games. So of course Bamco, like many other gaming companies out there, would gladly go for this re-release to make quick buck (though it's still questionable how profitable last gen remasters really are) instead of putting money and effort into remastering/remaking the true classic Tales of titles. It's just sad how obviously cheap and scammy all this "remastering" of last gen games business is.
