superb sales for yakuza.

with an exception of a very few games, this just shows that 97% japanese-made titles sell really well if its on ps3.

i hope japanese developers/publishers ditch altogether 360 development to avoid loses. no flaming for 360 owners but that's just how it is.

No it isn't, porting to 360 from PS3 will rarely cause losses.

porting has corresponding cost. japanese 360 title don't sell really well. we know that already. only games that sell for 360 are shooters.

I hope SEGA will localize Kenzan, Black Panther, and of the End, specially Black Panther cause this game is really awesome.

Horrible sales for a series. There have been 6 or 7 games and only 5 million sold worldwide? I'm still working my way through Yakuza 4, I haven't gotten very far with all the new games coming out, but I think I'll get back into it during a dry spell.

I still want this to come in English along with Kenzan.
