I have to admit I’m a Yakuza franchise virgin. Hang on, let me rephrase that – I was a Yakuza franchise virgin. I was aware of the Yakuza franchise, but I never really gave any thought to playing it. I was too involved with my FIFAs, GTAs, Battlefields, and highly overrated CoDs. However, I was presented with the opportunity to review the game and decided eh – why not.
Admittedly, I now feel that I have missed out on 3 epic segments of this franchise after playing such a gripping game. I got started by slipping the disc into my PS3, not knowing what I was going to experience. I decided not to search up Yakuza 4 on the net, as I wanted my experience to be as original as it could be.
Yakuza 4 is on sale at Best Buy for only $39.99. You know, this $39.99 price point has become the norm as of late. Target usually has every new release at the $39.99 price two weeks after release. I, personally, would buy a lot more games at this price point; how about you? For the current deal click HERE
Next week 2/8, the Playstation Plus subscribers are getting some PlayStation goodness. First I think it’s awesome that the subs are getting the brand new Stacking game for free. This is the first day that it’s coming out and the subs are getting it for free, pretty freaking cool. I never thought that we would get any brand new games included in the PS+ package but here to prove me wrong is the Official PlayStation Blog.The price for everyone else will be $14.99.

SEGA Europe has released this new Yakuza 4 Hostess Trailer, as well as announced that a demo for Yakuza 4 will be available exclusively to PlayStation Plus users on February 16th and then to all PlayStation Network users on February 23rd. There has been no mention of a US release, but we will most likely see one the day before here in the US.
The demo will allow you to take on the roles of all four characters enabling you to get a taste for life in the Japanese underworld with each imposing individual employing their own unique fighting styles and bringing their own particular brand of violence to the table. Of course this is merely scraping the tip of the iceberg that is the Yakuza 4 experience.
Yakuza 4 will release exclusively for the PlayStation 3 on March 15th in North America and on March 18th in Europe.
