This could EASILY pass as a PS2 game....

Sega I bought all yakuza games till date that's been release in west on ps3

Where is our HD collection and yakuza 5 for west? I am very hopeful but my hope is dying down

Or last hope TGS

Same here. I actually ended up buying three copies of each game. One that I pre-ordered, then two more I grabbed during the holidays (one for my friend and the other for my little brother). I did the same same with Binary Domain, except that I also re-bought it on Steam during last summer sale, and ended up buying 4 extra copies that I gifted to friends. I fully support Toshihiro Nagoshi's work and it's a shame that Sega of America hasn't yet made the right steps to ensure the Yakuza series' success in the west. My best recommendation is to email their customer support here: https://segaofamerica.zende...

Send them a simple request asking them to localize both the HD collection and Yakuza 5, and if you have any additional comments you can definitely offer them up as well. The reason I mention this, is because I ended up emailing them and even offered some thoughts on how localization might be better handled, and I actually received a really nice non-generic reply back. As you may know, that's pretty rare nowadays. Usually you get the same generic copy/paste response about things, but this was an actual customer service agent that responded to my questions and offered to forward my email to the necessary parties. It could very well be worth the time. But regardless, I'm with you hoping for some good news at Gamescom or TGS.

I wouldn't expect any news about either localization at Gamescom. I also wouldn't be shocked if Yakuza 6 was announced at TGS by a cash-strapped Sega exclusively for the WiiU. Best to keep your expectations low and be pleasantly surprised...

They wouldn't ever bring Yakuza to Wii U Only, It's fanbase is on Playstation...

I'm inferring that Nintendo and Sega are testing the waters right now with this upcoming port. It didn't make sense for Capcom and Square to sign exclusivity contracts with Nintendo over MH, RE, and Kingdoms Hearts either, yet each franchise has noticeably produced titles that didn't appear on Playstation devices where they would sell better. Remember there's already a 3 game contract on the table with Nintendo.

Does anone see these box character models?

I didn't know the graphics on PS2 was that bad.

That's what happens when you play on your PS3/360 for years and go play an "HD or Remastered" PS2 game or an actual ps2 game.
