Thanks, still not finished 3 or 4 yet and wanna play Kiwami 2 before this. Good price!
All Yakuza Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Great game, bargain for a tenner. I’ve spent many many hours playing this.
Obviously not a fan I see but thanks for posting. Funnily enough I did have a Dreamcast and feel as if I'm the only one who thought Shenmue was a tad overrated. I enjoyed it at the time but looking back, maybe not as much as I thought. Yakuza was much better in my personal opinion.
shenmue, its spiritual predecessor was on dreamcast though
It was never on the Dreamcast :/
The Dreamcast had been dead for half a decade by the time the first Yakuza came out. Fun games though.
Doh! I always forget to use cashback sites!
5 per cent quidco as well
You know what, screw it. I am going to buy it now. It's worth the price even if it sits on my to do list for a bit. Though I will probably play it for a few days while I wait for another release :D
Ahh good stuff, bought this on Monday but hadn't noticed the pre-load was available. Hoping to make some progress before Monster Hunter is released, otherwise I fear it will be just another addition to my pile of shame :(
They're on SEGA's Approved Partner List: http://www.sega.com/sega-approved-partner-list
great game (have completed it) - well worth £15
This game is probably my favourite out of the series, so many weird and quirky sidequests packed full of minigames and addictive gameplay, you'd be an idiot to not play this game
Agreed, that was quite addictive once you got the hang of it and helped make a few yen too
Good lengthy game. Much better than the first.
At it's current price, I don't really see it worth it. I used to be excited for collectors, then I made that mistake believing Fallout 4 and it's Pip Boy would be a good piece to own. After selling that, along with Doom and Hitman (that one was actually quality over the other two). I don't really buy the collectors for statues anymore, takes up to much space, and the quality is very questionable with some companies. The only piece I'd get no matter what is The Last of Us 2, if they release one for it. As I'm kicking myself for not getting the first one.
Am probably about 100 hours into Yakuza 0. Does this game ever end? (lol)
sneaky they put the price up
They put it up, it was 55 for a couple of days at least. It's 63.70 @Amazon.
£64.99 when i look at it ?
This. Zero the Kiwami. Amazing games.
Thanks for posting. Ordered. Have some heat !
I’d start at 0 personally
Is this worth playing for a total newcomer? Or should you start with previous titles
Just bought this in Argos Swindon & they gave me the standard version I'm guessing it's just down to whatever version they have in stock
I can also confirm this is the art edition as I purchased earlier myself. Just finished 0, and Kiwami a couple of months ago and I am looking forward to this and the release of Kiwami 2 and hopefully 3,4 and 5 when they are released.
Awesome! Thanks for that!
EDIT- where does it say that exactly? I can't find any mentioning of the art book. The front of the case is different too.
Yakuza 2 is the best. I've got it on PS2. Everything that happens in the first game story seems to be topped in the sequel. It's brutal If you like Kiwami, you'll love 2.
3,4 &5 updates have been announced. http://www.gamerevolution.com/news/393885-yakuza-3-4-and-5-will-not-be-kiwami-style-remakes-says-series-creator
=P 0 is long dood but very good I gave up trying to 100% though
Never mind kiwiamiI I just started 0 last week. No idea why I am buying this now. (annoyed)
I bought it regales 😝 Still need to open kiwiami but meh
To warn you some of them are very long
I actually bought from Amazon on the basis of it being Bloodborne GOTY, they have now amended their description and have sent me the GOTY version as a gesture of goodwill after I flagged this up with them on Twitter!
I either got these on plus or got ages ago like uncharted 4. Only ones of interest would be yakuza games.
Thats a great deal as both together cost me about £50 a few months back. I have just started Yakuza 0 and it looks like there’s a lot to the game. Kiryu is a 8) dude.
No worries. Not your fault that they're so slow at restocking. Yakuza 0 is supposed to be the better game anyway so I'll go for that. :)
Wow I'm really hitting it out the park today! Sorry about that buddy.
You don’t need PS Plus to get these games at these prices.
Sorry just one last thing, is the reduced price for plus members only?
It’s still showing for me at $19.99 (£10.96)
Thanks for the confirmation. Let the grindfest commence! :(
Is The Last of Us no longer half price?
Is it sad that i have 11 of these? Still havent played bloodborne or MGS
The NON-'Platinum/Essentials/Hits' physical versions of games, or SKUs, will be the first batch unpatched release. The Platinum/Essentials/Hits SKUs, majority of the time have been updated, bugs fixed, dialogue changed, etc. This is definitely true for PS and PS2. From PS3 onwards, as games have constant updates, it doesn't matter what version you get, in terms of the SKU, because it will always be patched to the latest update. When PS3 games went for £1 or £2, I got a bunch of them as silver platinum boxes or red essential boxes. "Ah, but you're an idiot, because they're going to turn off PSN for PS3 in 20xx, and you won't be able to play/update that game on your PS3 anymore, even if you have the disc." That's why I upgraded my PS3 40gb hard disk to a 500gb one and game by game downloaded all the updates for every game. No doubt I'll eventually have to do that for my PS4 collection. But with external 4tb drives under £90 these days, and slowly dropping, it won't be that hard. I'll probably end up buying TLOU remastered, if I can't get it on ebay for the magic price of under £10 inc. delivery.
Its one of,if not the best game on ps4 for me..i love it
Nice post Mixi :) Awesome games.... The Last Of Us <3 All of the games though, very cheap for Yakuza 0 which physically generally has a going rate of £20+
Oh bloody hell even cheaper!!
Just got a dispatched notification for this! :/
Heat OP! You actually get £2 off if you're PRIME making it £12.99.
Yes but you'd probably be better off playing Kiwami 1 and 2 instead of yakuza 1 and 2 at this point.
0 is the prequel so the ideal starting point. After that, as far as I'm aware, you can play them in order, so 1-6.
How many yakuza games are there and in what order are they?
Yakuza 0 is going down to £15.99 when sony launch the classica range next month however much would prefer the original box!
I fixed your comment for you.
That was my reason to look at see if any of them are dropping, lol. Found these. :D
Im sure all these games are in the greatest hits collection that got announced recently
I did not play the DLC mate. Hard to comment. :(
OK sony this teasing has to stop
Rather get the physical version so I can sell if I don't like the game. Good deal though!
Great price on both! It’s been a while since I laughed and enjoyed playing games as much as I enjoyed playing these (lol)
Same here, I've been waiting too but just purchased at this price. Happy days.
Awesome find! Been waiting for 0 to go down in price on the physical, but at this price, I can't say no, even if it is digital. Purchased.
I'm only gonna buy it if Kiryu says "huh" the Japanese way 486 times an hour of game play like he does in Yakuza 0
It was about £36 I think, so I know what the asker means. It is dropping a bit faster than I expected. I reckon it's gonna be the best of the series. I've not played it, but I've played and own every other game. The second being my favourite, followed probably by 4, Kiwami/1, 5 (controversial choice) and 3. Dead Souls was toss though. I would love for the Japanese only Samurai one to be subtitled into English. EDIT- Forgot about Zero. Didn't do much for me. Probably my least favourite, besides DS.
A damn good price and don't regret even paying £40 for mine on day of release
Dropping fast? It's been around this price for a few weeks and came out 2 months ago?
83% on Metacritic, so no.
Totally get you mate :D
But I could put that 31p towards a new car I need to buy ;-)
£9.44. But it was with a 30% discount code, this one is 15% and is only 31p more :D
What was it before mate?
Increased slightly, which is weird. Use code VOIDU15 now for a £9.75 price (y)
Nice! Really looking forward to it. Always wanted to play but never had a playstation!
It’s a prequel to the first game, meant to be a good starting point. I’m a few hours in, it’s excellent!
Just bought as well, thanks OP! Is this the first in the series? Always wanted to play these!
I’ve just bought it (embarrassed) and agree; the Bayonetta and Vanquish ports were very good!
Sega pc ports are pretty good, I have high hopes for this.
Yup night and day difference compared to PC ports 5 years ago. The amount of Japanese games on steam makes me very happy.
I'd also like to know. Been away from gaming for the last 4-5 years.
best of the series. Kiwami is not even close to it.
I need to go to Specsavers
Even cheaper on Fanatical - £11.99!
So if you're a new player just start with 0 then play Kiawami 1 and wait for Kiawami 2 to be released in English in August.
The order of release was 1 & 2 on PS2, 3 to 5 on PS3 then finally 0 (which is a prequel to the whole) and 6 (the last game in the arc following the main character, Kiryu) on PS4. At the same time as the release of 0 they went back and are remaking 1 through 5 for PS4. 1 & 2 are out already as Yakuza Kiawami 1 & 2. The last three will be out in Japan the end of this year, start of next so might take a while for over here as translations usually take a year or so.
What kind of strange order has this series been made in?? (lol)
In my opinion this edition is not worth the extra money, go fo the standard or the uber deluxe if you can splash. A book with artworks from the community (not professional illustrators or manga artists) is hardly of any interest.
Do yourself a favour and play the sequel next, Yakuza Kiwami, then Kiwani 2 out in August, then wait for 3,4 and 5 remakes. By then, 6 will be dirt cheap.
Thanks op. Ordered
Bought myself a copy, thanks Op (y)
This game deserves a place on your like of shame. Right at the top (y)
Yeah you absolute stewards of bars!!! I've ended up ordering it, god knows when I'll get round to playing it with this backlog and Buzz will have found it for 84p by then ;(
Please everyone, stop it with all the positive comments, my backlog is more than big enough as it is.
