Well, there goes yet another reason why the 360 managed to sell as much as it did in Japan. Shouldn't been surprised though given Namco Bandai and their release policy.

Bamco is known to stab backs on a consistent basis...such as Vesperia & Graces. So not a big surprise to me. I mean, the iDOLM@STER has been goin' to DS & PSP...so it's about time PS3 gets a port.

Well SPECIFICALLY Tales games are gettin' the betrayal treatment right now. Vesperia was SPECIFICALLY a 360 exclusive yet one year later, they drop a better ver. on PS3. Same can be said about Graces which was another exclusive Tales game.

well a lot of game are getting enhanced port. Don't forget Mass Effect 2, Ninja Gaiden 2 (now on PS3 as Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2) are on the PS3, now Nintendo is also losing one of their exclusive, Goldeneye 007, it's now being ported to PS3 and 360 as Goldeneye 007 Reloaded.

Sadly, I know Idolmaster hasn't gotten a US release yet (well the news of the Idolmaster anime getting on CR stream was good news), but if Sony and Namco Bandai can release this game in US on the PSN with a demo (not on disc) and sub only, maybe it can sell well. You really don't need dub for this (look at the Yakuza series not counting the first one), and you don't need a disc release for it (I know some of the game on disc is also avaliable on PSN as digital download like Mass Effect 2, Infamous, Borderlands and full game that doesn't have disc release like Record of Agarest War). So why not try this, what's the risk of putting this on US PSN with no dub, just sub? If it doesn't sell well, Namco Bandai and Sony did their best. Maybe the Idolmaster anime could help make the decision to buy the idolmaster game.
