    Is this release dual language?
    Otherwise, 20 bucks is a bit high for me to pay for a digital-only copy. To me, digital-only games shouldn’t be more than 10 bucks. I Really wanted a BD release on this one… I had it on the X-Box until I sold the console. Once again, the PS3 owners are getting the short end…

    What are you talking about? PS3 owners are getting it cheaper (unless you can find a great deal)! Plus, twenty bucks is super cheap for a full game, especially since they normally go for 60. If it was a small arcade game for download, 5 or 10 bucks would be fine, but this is a full game. Makes me wish I had a PS3.

    Curio

    The PSN release, like the retail disc versions, only has a Japanese language track. No speak-a da English on this one, except for text. As far as the price, I think it’s pretty fair. Looking at past releases, some, like Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty were a bit lower at $14.99, while others like SOCOM Confrontation were a whopping $39.99. $20 seems to be baseline for games that either were or were intended to be full retail PS3 games.

    Aksys, thanks so much for making this game available to us in some form at last!

    Ahh, okay, that explains why it’s online only… I didn’t remember it wasn’t dual language (I never play in English if I have a choice, so I only remembered the Japanese audio). I’m still not really gung-ho about getting a game online when it was available as a disc on the other platform. I may get it, but probably not. I’m a collector, I want a collectible game.

    Bah, cannot edit comments. x.x Ah, well. I decided to buy it. I don’t like buying download-only games, but I figure for 20 bucks, I can try to show SCEA that these kinds of games deserve my money. I don’t see how Yakuza gets greenlit with a Japanese-only track but these games get shafted like this.
