Hermoso, can't describe my words for this game.

I can't wait for a release date, and this will turn into my first digital buy ever!~

(I'm more of a physical copies fan, but with this I will make an exception, a very special one.)

It's a situation where the fans should be happy were even getting this one. If they don't support this,then it's a zero chance of the series even getting another release here.

I like Yakuza series

It's one of the few games with hand to hand combat

2012 release.. it's almost 3 years.. and it's digital only?

It's not a major release so it's going to get the digital only treatment even with Sony picking up the tab.

i have a thing about digital games.

i don't like the idea of long term rental practice with digital games

maybe i'll get this game when it's $10-ish.. if not i'll not bother

hate the thought of paying for a game and you can't even sell or lend it out

Im sorry, as much as I like the series, I am not paying 40 bucks for an extended rental. And if it comes down to it, I will just buy the physical Japan release.

Depending on how much you paid originally for the game and how much you'd be selling it for you wouldn't be making much within the way of profit. As for lending it out unless you have responsible and trustworthy peeps why even bother.

But I digress

If you want the physical copy it's an option (though you'll obviously need to learn japanese) but simply expecting every publisher to always make their games physical in this day and age is a bit shortsighted.
