I'd say no unless you could get a cheap used one off craigslist or something.

Or unless you plan on getting other games too but it seems like you don't.

Buying a console just for game it's a No.

Well they only go for 80 to 100 dollars online. Vesperia is 15 dollars so it wouldn't be like I'm spending a whole lot. I know a lot about Vesperia from watching videos but I want to play it. I doubt my girlfriend will get me it for my birthday too. She doesn't have a lot of money and I would feel guilty if she did buy me an Xbox.

But I do want to play other games on the Xbox. I'm sure there's other rpgs isn't there? I know Xenoblade Chronicles is one of them and it was very good.

Xenoblade Chronicles is in the Wii. And it is very good.

If ypu want some recommendations, Infinite Undiscovery is a fun and charming RPG and its cheap. I hear Lost Odyssey is a great game as well.

I only buy a console if there are at least 5 games on it that I want to play.

Considering you can probably get an Xbox 360 for cheap nowadays, especially a used one, it may be worth it.

That is a really tough question. I can say from personal experience that buying a console for just one game can work out well. I bought a PS3 solely for Tales of Graces, and they ended up releasing Xillia, Xillia 2, Symphonia Chronicles, and will eventually release Zestiria (right?). The only difference is I don't know how much new content is coming out on the 360. I bought the PS3 a few years back while the console was still in the middle of its lifespan.

If you can get a cheap one, I feel like Tales of Vesperia is worth it. There are some gameplay elements that I feel only pop up in Vesperia that are really fun and I wish they would be brought back. I would tell you what they are, but I don't know how much you know about the game and I don't want to spoil anything (not that I would be spoiling the plot; just game mechanics for a lack of better terms).

There are a number of non-Tales JRPGs as well that are also exclusive to 360 that help make it worth it if you can find one for cheap - Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey among them. I'd list more but I can't look through my 360 library at the moment as I'm in the process of moving and everything's all boxed up.

Is 80 to 100 dollars considered cheap? And buying a whole console for one game is viable if it continues to evolve and have more. Just look at the PS4, nothing really going for it at the moment but it will probably evolve and the gaming industry will make a lot of good games for it.

It is reasonably cheap, in my opinion. If it helps, another way I view playing video games when it comes to the cost is how much time I put into the games. For instance, if you were able to get a 360 and Vesperia for about $100, and then you spent 100 hours on the game, you would be paying $1/hour overall. As a kid who grew up playing the occasional arcade game, I can live with that cost.

That is pretty good. I played arcade games too and the 1 dollar an hour isn't that bad. I'll probably spend more than 100 hours with Vesperia because I tend to grind levels in rpgs and that takes time. Sure its not really fun grinding but I do it anyway because its a habit in rpgs.

I have this problem where I grind during the game itself unintentionally, getting overlevelled by accident on most runs of any RPG I do. :/

And that's why I usually take much longer for the game. So 100 hours for vesperia sounds reasonable to me. But I know from experience I wasn't at the end yet at that point (the final dungeon wasn't even revealed yet).

Yeah grinding in rpgs makes the game way too easy I agree but I like seeing myself a high level. It's just a mental thing I have. I don't know if there is such a thing as overlevelled because when you consider the EX dungeons or extra content and sub bosses most of them being even tougher than the final boss then being overlevelled isn't so overlevelling afterall.

Originally I had bought my 360 for Vesperia and a few other games, but now, the only reason I even keep it around is because of Vesperia. The other games don't really matter to me anymore lol

If you're talking just JRPG's, Eternal Sonata had nice combat at least, same engine.

I've heard good things about Lost Odyssey too.

Non-exclusives don't really count for much unless you already have the system. Eternal Sonata PS3 has more content anyway.

Lost Odyssey, which I already had mentioned, does count however as it was exclusive to the system - same with Blue Dragon.

I believe out of my entire 360 collection the only other JRPG exclusive I have is Infinite Undiscovery, which was a fun little adventure developed by Tri-Ace, but I've played better. As much as I love Tri-Ace, it was probably one of the most generic games I've ever played from them.
