Apparently Sega didn't make enough money off 270k sales to may to whack some subtitles on Y5 and push it out the door when NISA and XSeed can get by on games selling 50k at best a lot of the time and which often have English voice acting :(
I'm sorry but even if there's a lot of stuff to translate, that sounds ridiculous. Puts me off getting into the series when I'd really like to :(
|Bristow9091 (on 23 May 2012)|
Does anyone think this could cross 1m sales by this time next year? I reckon it could, since it's really cheap now, and when people hear about Yakuza 5 I can see a slight boost since there's going to be new people wanting to get into the series
|SnakeDrake (on 13 April 2012)|
160K to go
|SnakeDrake (on 14 January 2012)|
200k to go damn it
|Ham_Burgular (on 09 January 2012)|
Not at all i preferred Yakuza 3 to GTAIV by a mile. This one isnt as good mind you.
|oniyide (on 08 January 2012)|
is it weird to enjoy this game way more than GTA4??

@ Mr. Noodle: Released during a BUSY window. Too game gaes released in 2011
|Gearbox (on 18 September 2011)|
sega needs to learn how to market stuff.
|oldschoolfool (on 22 August 2011)|
my first yakuza game,that I bought. I like it,but it's not without it's flaws.
|paulrage2 (on 11 August 2011)|
I bought Yakuza 4 to!
|Mr.Noodle (on 27 July 2011)|
I thought in NA this game would sell better than the 3rd since its a better game and have a better following.
|Iveyboi (on 12 June 2011)|
Finally got it...just finished Story 2 and it is GREAT. Picks up as it goes along for sure.
|whatz3rname (on 31 May 2011)|
My GOTY so far.
|rccsetzer (on 07 May 2011)|
Yakuza 4 is a great game. So much things to do. Better than most RPGs.
|rccsetzer (on 07 May 2011)|
|Bristow9091 (on 14 April 2011)|
I'm confident that this game will reach between 50-100k in both US and EU, not combined, but each, it'll definitely hit 50k sales in one of the areas before 10 weeks, I think EU will have the stronger legs as usual and reach a higher lifetime sales. I think if the game can reach a total of 100-150k in the west, it's been a success, just not as great as Yakuza 3, but oh well, still great!
|aken909 (on 14 April 2011)|
Really great game, best in the series. Sega did a really good job. It's a shame it has such poor sales.
|TT Makaveli (on 31 March 2011)|
@Iveboi: the same with me...to totally enjoy a Yakuza game it needs much time...and right now i dont got it...i got so many games here at home that i need to play :-/
|Iveyboi (on 29 March 2011)|
I want to buy it but there are too many games out around now..I feel many gamers wanting this feel the same
|Heavenly_King (on 29 March 2011)|
I bet the game at least will reach 100k in US and EU
|LordMatrix (on 26 March 2011)|
Good lord this game bombed outside of Japan. Yakuza 3 was pretty fun so I am surprised.
|axumblade (on 25 March 2011)|
@bristow, I believe this game will probably have legs to be honest. Last year I don't remember but I want to say there wasn't nearly as many titles competing for the PS3 gamers attention.
|Bristow9091 (on 25 March 2011)|
Oh my, now the US numbers are up this game isn't doing too well right now, it's way below the first week of the third in the west... let's hope something amazing happens otherwise I reckon SEGA won't release anymore outside of JP. If it can atleast reach 0.1m in each of US and EU it should be fine in terms of sales, let's cross our fingers and hope!
|8Nawt753 (on 25 March 2011)|
I was gonna grab 3, but saw 4 on sale. Might as well buy the latest one.
|kivi95 (on 24 March 2011)|
hope i gets atleast some legs in Europe
|Bristow9091 (on 24 March 2011)|
Oh dear, sales are weaker than the previous game in EU first week, although that could be due to it being overpriced in some stores, in the two HMV's near me it's retailing at £50, whereas it's £45 in GAME and Gamestation, I remember I bought the third one on release day for only £35 which was the price everywhere. I hope it has stronger legs than the third and sells better!
|Spinzaku (on 02 March 2011)|
I think the release of "Yakuza: Of The End" will burst sales in Japan. There must be some price cut editions aswell.
|italo244 (on 04 February 2011)|
Still can surpass Yakuza 3 on Japan.
|whatz3rname (on 04 December 2010)|
It will. March 15 in the US if I don't remember incorrectly.
|Vueguy (on 16 November 2010)|
need to come to the US and EU.i want to buy this game so bad.
|Marco (on 29 May 2010)|
a very good game. for shenmue-fans a must buy title.
|Dgc1808 (on 19 May 2010)|
Closing in on Y3's Japanese sales pretty quickly.
|NSS7 (on 15 May 2010)|
Again bad legs.
|nen-suer (on 09 April 2010)|
Am hoping for a western release
by the end of the year
|--OkeyDokey-- (on 06 April 2010)|
SEGA could have an easy million selling franchise if they weren't lazy with the western releases. Hope this changes with Yakuza 4.
|KeyStyle (on 05 April 2010)|
700k LTD in Japan
|sbvgc2012 (on 03 April 2010)|
Much better story than Yakuza 3.
|snyperdud (on 02 April 2010)|
Amazing second week for a Yakuza game in Japan.
This should reach 600k fairly easily.
|Marco (on 31 March 2010)|
i love yakuza 4! and i play now yakuza 3. best japanese game with Metal Gear Solid !
|TT Makaveli (on 29 March 2010)|
please bring it fast to US & Europe...and please no cuts this time + Sega please do some Subs for the Europeans...a shame like every Sega game in Europe is only in english...lazy bastards!
|GodOfWar_3ever (on 28 March 2010)|
