so another exlusive for the PS4? ^_^
very nice indeed ^_^
Abriael  +   812d ago
I would say it's almost safe to assume it by now.
sherimae2413  +   812d ago
nagoshi knows where are the yakuza fans is...
he even said that the yakuza series grew only on playstation
even if sony doesnt moneyhat devs/publishers... some games mostly in japan will only be released exclusive to playstation systems ^_^

a prime good examples are NIS games, gust games,and some series/franchises that still remains to playstation untill now ^_^

10 new PS4 games will feature

Yakuza Producer:
Info on Yakuza will come on the day :D

Yakuza games look insane on PS3 and i can barely imagine how they would look on PS4.

Europe gives Yakuza love as well. Looking forward!

Yakuza for PS4 CONFIRMED!
wishingW3L  +   812d ago
more like: another game that will never see an overseas release. =/
Abriael  +   812d ago
I would not bet on that. Yakuza Ishin will be a self contained game, so having played the previous chapters of the series is not necessary, and Sony is known for pushing localization of titles during the early days of a platform to beef its line-up. Remember Gundam for PS3?

^ I like your optimism. But Kenzan was also a self-contained game and it never came here.
Abriael  +   812d ago
Axisian: Kenzan was also released almost two years after the console. I would not exclude it, or maybe yeah, it's just optimism speaking :D
dc1  +   812d ago
Keep in mind that Kenzan did not have trophy support. At the time of Sega's typical location period (1 year post Japan release), Sony had a very deep line in the sand regarding the release of games on the PS3 without trophy incorporation.

Woohoooo. ps4TW
majiebeast  +   812d ago
Seriously hope Sony has some surprises for everyone. I mean they are live streaming and subbing the event, so there must be something of intrest for us right? Shenmue 3 and TLG for worldwide meltdown.
cyguration  +   812d ago
Shenmue 3? GTFO with that kind of heartbreak talk; you only make tears flow from the rivers of our soul with such words.
black0o  +   812d ago
gameply for the order 1886 and deep down will do the trick for me :)
ZodTheRipper  +   812d ago
I'm expecting The Order gameplay at VGA's to be honest. The Last Guardian though better be ready for TGS.
skydragoonity  +   812d ago
This keeps getting better & better
GrandpaSnake  +   812d ago
I love the variety on the ps4 so far.
GenericNameHere  +   812d ago
"Son Japan" haha you should add a [sic] to that, whatever that means

Anyways, the Yakuza HD Collection released on the Wii U not too long ago. Maybe this will be a PS4/WiiU multiplat? Then again, it did HORRIBURU on the Wii U. I think around the same as the flop sales of W101. So maybe PS4 exclusive?
Abriael  +   812d ago

After the HD collection's sales you can pretty much bet the Wii U will never, ever see another Yakuza game again.

Experiment failed. And failed.
CGI-Quality  +   812d ago
This will be a PlayStation title only. The WiiU had its test with the HD Collection and failed miserably. Don't see that road being taken again, which is smart, since Yakuza fans are on PlayStation systems. It's DEFINITELY PS4 exclusive.

Now that since its coming for a console launch the chances of it getting localized should be higher. Comeon SEGA do your job! you can't expect to gain more fans by keeping all your games in Japan.
fsfsxii  +   812d ago
PS4 exclusiv confirmed.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   812d ago
not til Sega say it is
fsfsxii  +   812d ago
Nah, i'm pretty sure that Sony pays sega for the exclusivity
tiffac008  +   812d ago
Unless MS throws a lot of money at Sega's way because that Wii U Yakuza HD experiment didn't do so well.

But more importantly I wish someone would help Sega localize Y5 because its clear they won't do it on their own.

CGI-Quality  +   812d ago
@ tiffac: If the WiiU experiment didn't do so well, and it didn't, the Xbox experiment would do even WORSE! Remember, the majority of its fans are in Japan, who don't go for Xbox.

Thus, it will be PS4 exclusive.Plain and simple.

What did I say that contradicted the obvious?
CGI-Quality  +   812d ago
@ tiffac: Errr...where did I imply a contradiction? Unless you have no faith in your own idea - I was simply stating how unlikely that scenario is.

tiffac008  +   812d ago

Well I was just making sure there was no misunderstanding on our part because you usually do not state the obvious to the person who has the same point as you do.

Of course in the end it seems some did not get what I said basing on the disagrees. Lol

Edit: NVM I see now where all the misunderstanding is coming from. My reply was for Misaka not fsxii and I did not made it clear. :/

now folks is it exclusive to PS4
Kydawg  +   812d ago
Forget Yakuza. Sega Eight just announced Shenmue 3 will be an a parallel universe, not too far away.
chrissx  +   812d ago
More good news from Sony
cell989  +   812d ago
So Tokyo Game Show reveal it is I presume
reaperman  +   812d ago
Wouldn't really get too excited about this as sure it may be a PS4 exclusive but probably never be released in the west. Sega are complete dicks when it comes to their games. They think that all the people who live in the west want from their catalogue are the crap games featuring a blue hedgehog. All previous games from the Yakuza franchise were released over in the west, all apart from the best one of the lot Yakuza 5 and Sega have basically said that they are not going to localise it due to lack of interest. It was Sega's own fault for thinking that Yakuza: Dead Souls would sell bucket loads because it featured zombies in it. Only reason I bought it was because I have all the previous Yakuza games. Dead Souls was weak and I couldn't be bothered to even finish it. Was looking forward to Yakuza 5 but no localisation means I can't play it unless I learn Japanese or play game and follow translations on the net. Sega are so dumb because if they planned ahead they could include an option for English subtitles in the game and an option for changing other game text to English while making the game, they wouldn't need to have the game dubbed into English as the speaking in Japanese isn't a problem with subtitles. Then they could release in the west also and not have to spend extra money to localise it later on.
As much as I would love to see Ishin released outside Japan, I can't see it happening as Sega don't know what their customers want and it sure as hell isn't another Sonic game.

Im gonna import yakuza 5 next year , someone on youtube will translate it... His name is khhsubs. He translated all of kenzan so i went ahead and imported it. Now he started doing Y5 translated substory, and by next year he said he will translate 5.. Also imported 1&2 hd cuz theres a story walktrough on youtube cuz it came out in english. Hopefully ishin will arrive outside japan but with sega i also doubt it.
