Sega has announced that they are working on Yakuza 6 for PlayStation4.
A remake and 6 for PS4 only? Sony is killing it out there!
Talking to friends in Japan while I watch the presser. People over there are having fits.
That whole conference was just having most Japanese development studios show up on stage and announce titles for PS4 and Vita. Sony was on stage so little of that whole thing. Too bad we can't have an E3 like that. Just keep shuffling in one developer after another with new announcements. Edit: Also... 2016 just got how many freaking new games from just that one conference?
Yeah, definitely different and most welcome. You are right. Had that been E3, it would have taken 3 - 4 hours to show that many games. This was an assembly line presentation that did away with time consuming fanfare and self congratulatory back slapping and cut down to what matters - the games. Some new surprises for the fall but 2016 is in overload.
Good job sony
Please come to the west. Yes sega I'm talking to you
Sony is dropping bombs
Holy shit, did not expect this!
Yakuza 6 PS4 exclusive! HELL YES!! However, I ALREADY have a HD remake of Yakuza 1 and 2 (released on PS3 in Japan), so does this mean it will be a HD remake of a HD remake?! #Remakeception
This isn't just an HD uprez as with the previous 1 & 2. Also there is a ton of new material in this as well.
Localize these!!! 0, Remake and 6.
for all of you who are happy like like me you guys know that this will not hit the west if you don't buy 5 on the PS3 right just putting it out there.
You're probably right, but I hope you're wrong! The success of a brand new game on PS4, if Sega was willing to bring it west within a timely manner, shouldn't even be comparable to whatever meager sales a last-gen game is likely to sell THREE YEARS after it originally came out in its native country, know what I mean? I don't think they can expect to sell too high of a number of Yakuza 5 for PS3, I think that if they brought Yakuza 6 within 1 year of its Japanese release it would sell way more than Yakuza 5 will sell.
Oh man, I hope they bring this to the west in less than 3 years.
