In a rather bizarre move, Sony has included English language support in the Asian release of Siren: Blood Curse, leaving the game open to import to Europe and the US.
I hope they do this with more of their games
Afrika anyone? This is good news.
it'll be hard with Afrika since there will be a biography/database sort of thing for each animal which would suck if you couldn't read it.
oh god i hope so.. i would forgive sony for not releasing afrika in europe in a heartbeat, if i can import it and it's in english. because i really really want that game, and i don't know japanese.
Just seems weird not releasing the Blu Ray in US/EU if they include English language in the Asian version. Why make us download it? Everyone will now import.
But also it might be economical. If they don't have to make discs for EU and/or the U.S., then they save millions on localizations The only people that will still download it will be the people that aren't exactly traditionalists.
Yeah, you could be right.
Does anyone know if the xenosaga that they released in the japanese playstaion store has and english option available? Edit: yea xeogears, thank you for the letting me know.
Xenogears you mean? It doesn't. I wish it did though.
Great news i will import. Still i guess the reason why its eposonic everywhere else is that its the perfect title to test the waters and see if this form of gaming could take off as it wouldn't sell a great deal normally outside of japan. Hopefully they do this with more JPN exclusive games
i'll import if no US release is scheduled.
Sounds good to me, but I think I'd just download it when available in the US PS store. BTW, does anybody think Sony will finally release MGS1 for US/EU PS store? It sucks that MGS1 is ONLY in the JPN PS store. I want it in english. :)
why not buy mgs1 for ps1/pc?
its like 24.99 on amazon and you get the whole story to add to your MGS4
yeah, I'll most likely get the essentials pack...
Fuk yes! Importing it. I don't have the patience to download the episodes with my speed.
have multiple languages included....like Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm, the developers said you can change it from English to Japanese, which is great since Naruto sounds terrible in english...
Really I'm gonna wait to see how well it's done in english and see if when it releases if they plan on some kind of extra stuff for the US version. Unless there won't be a US version in which case I will also import it. Anyone know any good site to order from PM me. TY
Nice move Sony! Now, for rpg's...you gotta do the same thing!
I'll definitely import just to spark the traditionalist in me. Anyone else really excited for this release? Been playing Fatal Frame III these past few days and horror titles really bring a great experience to the table. I'm contemplating a Wii purchase just for Fatal Frame IV. I hope SONY decides to add English localization to other JPN exclusives for sure... Let's hope for Square Enix back catalog to PSN!!
Hopefully they added English to the Japanese version as well... Added $5 and pre-ordered the Japanese version hoping I would get the pre-order music CD that comes with it. I don't really need English but it would make it more valuable I guess. Anyway hope people import away, that download only thing was stupid for this sleeper hit. For me the experience of playing part 1 (in Japanese) was on par w/ MGS3...
the voice work is primarily done in English. the demo i played was all in English the only thing that wasn't was the controls display.
Its a great thing that they are doing this. I played the demo and all but the non voice dialogue is Japanese. English is only the voice overs and such, which is the main part of the story. The rest is descriptive text that appears on screen as you play (E.g. Resident Evil style). Download the demo off the JPN PSN Store. A very solid demo from start to finish and fun.
If they're including an English track I assume they will include an English subtitle track. In which case I'll get the Japanese version since they may translate English subtitles well.
Great, now I don't have to DL it in episodes. I like the idea of episodic content but I heard the first episode would be 10 minutes long. Sorry, I want the whole thing so I can chomp through it.
