Yakuza is already a changed title... and I think it's a pretty good one.

Not as good as Japanese Gangs.

why wont they make it multiplatform instead of forcing me to waste 350 euros!


Probably because the low numbers it'd do on 360, wouldn't be enough to compensate for the time and money it took to port? :P

I hope it the release boosts the ps3 atleast 10k. :D



Prediction:

TGS this year for PS3 will be amazing.

Grandia comes to PSN(PSone classic).

First Versus gameplay this year.

The Adventures Of Duane and Brando

Japanese gangs sound as if they spend their time doing graffiti and nicking cars :/ Doesn't really bring around the meaning of grey zone legal mafia.



There's nothing wrong with the name Yakuza, far from it. Fits the main char perfectly (perfect cast imho).

Waiting a year to port and then not updating some parts that NEED improvement (in-game graphics, the way conversations are text and some other problems), THAT is why Yakuza 3 is underperforming.



I think there were around 223k preorders for this game according to the jap preview, so it'll probably do around the same as 3. 350-400k.

Yakuza is a "narrow" name,and you expect it to be a big name,then you're wrong,at least far from right.And How sure you are that the name Yakuza is OK for it's FW sales(outside of Japan)???

Gangs of Tokyo or Japanese Gangs will make sure every English speaker understand what this game is about.

Again stupid SEGA.



lol I remember when thesource predicted 100k-200k first week



 400k for the first week?



I don't see whats wrong with "Yakuza". Everyone around here knows what that means.



"And yet, I've realized that maybe living a "decent" life means you won't ever have a "good" life."

 

Yakuza sounds awesome and if its too hard for people to take a liking to the game due to the name then too bad cause that's what the game is and its their loss. Or would you prefer they keep it as "Ryu Ga Gotoku"?

Weird enough when America describes Yakuza as the "Japanese Mafia", I wonder what Japan calls the Mafia? "Italian Yakuza"?
