Here's a picture of my game, what the DLC card looks like and how to look at the blu-ray case to see if the DLC is included or not. The expiration date for the DLC was supposedly April 1st of 2011, but I never heard any feedback on if the codes are still valid or not. The DLC isn't advertised on the cover like it is on Yakuza 4.


The DLC code for Yakuza 3 still works. I just redeemed mine a couple of days ago (12-1-2011).

Awesome news. I guess it was really an April Fool's prank by SEGA after all. :wave:

Just got the platinum. As much as I loved this game, I don't think I'll be playing it ever again. :p

I hope you already redeemed both of those DLC codes in the picture cuz I(and likely everyone else who saw your post) can clearly read them.:D

For those who missed out on this price for Yakuza 4, I posted a deal a few days ago or so mentioning that there's a special shipment of Yakuza 4(complete with UPC sticker over the original and a second sticker with the price on it) in stores at Kmart now. The price there is $14.99 as well. It's YMMV if you can find it though.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Everyone is more than welcome to try. 8-) They'll find out if their greed and attempt at robbery was worth the effort of trying to redeem them.

The only beef I have with the K-mart shipment is that the DLC was removed from the game. I don't know if that's a deal breaker for anybody, but I don't like how they changed the cover. Some may prefer it better since the artwork is uncovered, but for some reason it just feels as if something is missing... to me, anyway. :-#

But maybe the Kmart copies are an earlier shipment closer to release, since companies do add stuff in for re-releases(Mafia II, Heavy Rain Director's Cut) to add value for those buying the games later.

My take on DLC is this. As long as I don't know that earlier copies may have contained something or that something is actually on the disc and being released as 'DLC', then I don't really care. But stuff like charging people $5-10 for files already on a game's disc is horseshit and I'm seeing a bunch of that happening this gen.

In the case of Yakuza 3 and 4, here are a list of things I believe to be true:
1.) I got the game on release date. All of the copies that I have seen up until a couple weeks ago had the DLC advertised. K-Mart received a strange shipment with what I believe to be are re-prints, not earlier copies that do not include the DLC.
2.) The only DLC for Yakuza 4 available on PSN is an items package, which is free. What's included on the voucher does not appear to be available for purchase on the PSN store, so it kind of sucks for those people who bought a gutted game, even if the content was already included on the disc. :booty:
3.) In the case of Yakuza 3, it appears the latter shipment is the one that included the DLC, but not advertised anywhere on the front cover. I believe only a small percentage of the Yakuza 3's out there had the DLC, and possibly only available at K-Mart since K-Mart was the one retailer running the promotion where Yakuza 3 came free with the purchase of Yakuza 4.

Yakuza 3 is on auto notify/back order. Does Newegg sell it at the sale price when they get more in stock?

And I was able to buy Y4, thanks OP.



After I clicked on auto-notify I read this: Please Note: Due to limited supply, all stock is sold on a first-come first-serve basis. Auto notify does not guarantee availability or price. All prices are subject to change without notice.


There are no emoticons to express the rage I feel right now for missing this.

$15 each w/free shipping, good prices for those that missed the BF deal or want the third game.

No worries, I'm sure a deal like this will come around again.

No worries as $15 is the going rate for both games. Plus Newegg tends to restock on certain games. I don't want to deal with Kmart but both games are $15 there too.
