lets hope it gives the ps3 the much needed sales boost in JA. Looks like japan will be gettin a collectors edition and a premium edition for mgs. being the fan i am i have to go for premium.

I know this probably belongs in the other section, but for some reason poos doesn't have to post there yet and every time I see one of his posts where he acts like he actually owns a ps3 I wish to myself that there was an option to report someone just for being a total douche.

Just did the math in my head as the page was loading to convert it to x/10 and I got 9.25/10, or 93/100 after rounding. Shouldn't that score at the top say 93, not 92.

Aside from my nitpickery, looks to be a AAA game then. I've never played any form of a Yakuza game, so I'm not that interested(don't know anything about it, really), but anybody who follows it is sure to be pleased.

You're wrong. If you don't believe me, below is a link to a third grade math page. It'll fill you in on all of the intricacies of when to round up or down. Careful now, it's tricky stuff.

Edit: I just realized that you probably know the rounding rules and simply forgot that this scoring system doesn't use decimals. 9.25 would be the equivalent of 92.5, so you would round up. I don't like changing my original messages, so I'll leave it be and just say sorry for acting like a know-it-all @ss.

Edit2: Haha, looks like deep beat me to it while I was typing up my apology. Sorry everybody, I saw my mistake. No hard feelings.

I know this is off topic, but if it's out of 10 and you're using precision to the tenth (the first decimal place), you'd round to the nearest tenth, which for 9.25 would be 9.3. If you were to round to the nearest one, then it would be just 9. Right? Please explain if I'm wrong, I must know if I've been living a lie since third grade!!!!

well.. actually... this is debatable.. i remember in my physics courses. .. the rounding of a number say 92.5 would actually be rounded down to 92. I remember that 0.5 difference being very picky, because its equidistant to both whole numbers. When it was an even number it was rounded down (to the even numbers), when it was an odd number.. it was round up(to the even numbers). So 92.5 was rounded down to 92.. and 93.5 would be rounded up to 94. Just something I remember from school way back when, take it as you will.

Well this is another one for my shopping list.
Its very different from the other games out there, so I'm sure I'm going to enjoy it.
I think japanese culture is becoming more main stream in the west, so there is a growing market for it outside Japan.

I looked at the graphics on this game sometime last year and they looked good, but from what people told me about the other ones I thought it would have been horrible. It's nice to see that this was a big step up; I may get this if I have some extra money to spare. Oh yeah this game is going to kill in Japan; I expect to see some hardware boosts this week.

I'm not a fan of the Yakuza games. They're awfully stiff in just about every aspect. I was hoping 3 would actually embrace next-gen in regards of its look and mechanics, but it's exactly like 1 and 2, but in a different time period.

this game was Amazing!! the demo was awesome ... i didn't expect any less ... its the first AAA title for the PS3 in Japan
