Bit confused how it is depicted players were able to unlock the full game when it seems whoever published the demo accidentally the whole game and players didn't need to do anything.
Yeah that was funny.
Well shit. Should have payed attention to this.
The exact same thing happened with a Mega CD demo disc. You'd think they'd have learned by now.
I have stopped the download because of this.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! This is going to history. I read they didn't even have to do anything complicated? Like the Demo was literally the full game with a few changed things? Can someone confirm?
Upset i missed out :<
Oh well, it's just two more months
SEGA always gonna be SEGA
Man that sucks, I feel for them. It must be the worst nightmare for a publisher/developer... I wonder how badly this will affect sales. I assume the profile of people downloading the demo that early are gamers that are interested or very interested on the Yakuza series, which are also the main target audience. I am hoping most of them have preordered the game already (and that they won't cancel the preorder). They pulled out the demo fairly quickly, so hopefully it is not too bad.
Lots of demos make you download the whole game. You play a small section and then if you decide to pay for the full game, it instantly unlocks instead of having to download anything further. It seems this is one of those games but people found a glitch to get past the end of the demo and keep playing.
So ... the demo has been the full game with some restrictions that people where able to disable/work around? How did anyone at Sega think that this is a good way to handle a demo?
I will still be getting yakuza 6 with the shot glasses but its nice to be able to play the full game,im going offline till i beat it,i wont be getting a new ps4 game till ninokuni 2.
The demo is suppose to prevent further access midway through the first Chapter. Sega or Sony put the full game up instead of the demo on the NA PSN. Nobody had to do any workarounds, nobody had to disable anything. It was just an error from Sega or Sony.
I wouldn’t have had the same scruple honestly
It's like taking advantage of a price error. But I totally understand your point.
As someone who uploads things to production environments, this sends icy shivers down my spine.
So, the people that got it, can't get it taken away from then, so now Yakuza 6 is just officially leaked full out there somewhere?
Would suck if Sega started to go after people unlocking the trophies or posting content about it before launch... that being said, i would not be surprised either.
It's funny because the game icon in the dashboard says "prologue" but the actual thing is the full version lol.
Now that's one error that would've made me use my PS4 @[email protected]
Im guessing sega might patch it so the full yakuza 6game will not work anymore.......maybe,thats why im going offline
some intern's half asleep when doing the upload..
It's probably not funny to them now..
But for the next Yakuza they should make a Sub Story where the Protagonist or someone he runs into accidentally gives a game away for free and they try to "fix" it.
Also, if it's really just the save data that transfers ... i don't understand why you would make such a massive demo instead of having a dedicated demo build and making the game available early via pre-load.
We just simply got the full game, the ones that managed to download the demo from the US store.
yea, all you had to do was download the demo and it turns out to be the full game. The game is suppose to stop story progress mid Chapter 1 because that was how it was done in the Japanese demo.
My connection is super slow, so the full download is taking it's time, so I'm demo restrictions anyways...despite that, the game has given me two trophies thus far.
I'm still buying the game (that premium edition is calling my name), but I feel really bad for the team that this happened.
damn. should have brought my ps4 to work and downloaded the demo. shietttt
The demo is the 1st chapter of the game.
You can finish downloading and then play the first chapter and back out.
I download demos all the time using three different accounts and this one time I was like naaah spoilers finish Yakuza 5 first.
Two months early access... The reviewer experience... All gone :'(
I would seriously buy 2 copies if it means I get to play it this early.
Lucky for people that got the game. But please consider supporting the series if you love the series.
Man i'm jealous as fuck! I have way more time now that what i'll get in april...
i would've still kept my pre-order, but at least i could have played it sooner... why i never get this kind of luck?
I had a feeling that the demo was absurdly long and longer than the Japanese one when I ended up hitting chapter 2. This makes sense now.
I don't know why they are wording it as if the players did something to unlock it when all I did was download the thing from the store and play it.
I bought Yakuza 0, and I'm planning on buying Kiwami too, but I can't say no to free :(
What I don’t understand is if the game is complete at this stage, why was the game delayed? Unless there is untranslated strings in the late game I see no reason why they delayed it to clash with God of War.
The question that should be asked is if the full game was made available then why are we waiting until April to get it.
