I ordered this on Black Friday at Amazon for $31.74 (free shipping) so this is a good deal.

This game might go OOP, although I don't think any game this generation has yet. Yakuza 1 and 2 are pretty rare now and both go for above $40 on ebay.

Yakuza 4 will be released in march, I wonder if the price will drop more once the sequel comes out?
I want to order it but..I need to save money for the 3DS :S

I don't see it going much cheaper than $25 to be honest. At most it'd drop to $20 but I wouldn't take that chance.

I think I played this at PAX last year (pretty sure it was 3 and not 4) and really enjoyed what I played (fighting sequence+).

I have to agree. The game seems to be getting pretty scarce. If you're at all interested in the game, don't wait too long.

Shit, after the hell I went through getting a copy of 2, I probably really should grab this as I know they printed few like they did 2. But I planned on picking up RDR and Mass Effect 2 this month... I guess Mass Effect 2 can wait. But I can't order this today, not till Friday at the earliest. And considering just how few copies there are, and how much they've sold in the last half hour, guess I'm SOL.

I'm 34 years old, and damned it, I want my freaking half-undressed anime chick.

In for 12 to afford a dozen roses for my body pillow Kimiko.

I really want to try this game, but I just dont think you will be seeing many rare and hard to find games anymore. I see this game on store shelves everywhere I go. I think I will keep looking and wait for it to hit clearance somewhere. Might get lucky, might not...

There are more for around the same price (less than 10cents more) and plenty at $30 which is only $5 more.

Just played the demo again, to see if I wanted to buy it, and I remembered why I never did.

I used to love games like this ages ago, still have my dreamcast and shenmue, but I dunno I just don't have the time or patience these days to sit through one of these games.

Thanks for the heads up OP, and goodluck to those wanting a copy.

I've had my eye on the game and sellers have been going at it around the $25 to $29 price for the last couple weeks. This was only a $2 drop from normal prices. I'm sure we will see $25 again and possibly lower.

Back again at just under $26 from a different seller. A few of them dropped their prices to this level :)

I'll be impressed if they can make a decent game (the first 3 all scored near 80) with just a year between releases.

Is Japanese audio with English subtitles an option in this game, or do we have to listen to painfully bad English voiceovers?

How is a score of around 80 not a decent game? Now, if it scored around 50 then I'd understand.

I must say that the demo for Yakuza 3 is probably the worst representation of a full game that I can remember. I was hesitant as well until I played the full game.

Yakuza 3, in my opinion, is the best game released in the past 10 years. The story, characters, action, and emotion in the game is unlike anything else you will experience in a video game. It's sad that more people outside of Japan don't play this game - it's one of the biggest franchises over there, and for good reason.

You missed the point. It appears the first 3 games were decent based on their scores, but it was apparently 2 years between the original and Yakuza 2, and 18 months between Yakuza 2 and 3. It looks like it will only be a year between 3 and 4, so it will be impressive if it scores as well without being dinged for poor execution or failure to innovate.
