i just don't get why having users download the entire game just to play a demo makes any sense...yeah, the JP one had barriers up to prevent more gameplay, but stuff like this can happen. why do it?
I feel like an idiot not downloading the demo because it was so large and would've taken me hours. At least I'd be playing the game now with everyone else getting it a month and a half early. I still certainly would have kept my preorder too. I have no qualms supporting a franchise for which I've enjoyed every single entry.
Not to be a jerk or anything, but hypothetically, who is to blame for this error? Surely it's not the localization team, right? As far as I know, localization teams primarily work for translations, censorship for specific countries, editing of scenes to make more sense to general audiences, and other things of that nature. Do the localization teams handle digital distribution, too? I thought that would have been handled by the publisher rather than the localization team of the development.
I'm not trying to lowball the importance of a localization team; I'm just trying to understand how big of a role they take. I don't think they should be taking the heat for something like this if it wasn't actually their fault.
i'd still keep my pre order just coz i can afford too.
plus, that's 2 months later. i get to play the game early, so in essence, i'm getting a bonus early.
Missed the window, would've dled and kept my LE preorder. Hoping they won't be hit too hard by this, with the short window of time it was up and that it was during the work day...
Don't be that one guy on Resetera, all of us that got the full game through the demo are buying the limited edition, or the standard edition.
Call me naive but if I was enjoying the demo and was planning on buying the game I would pay for it anyways. There are people behind the making of this game who worked their asses off for years, don't be so callous. It doesn't matter that it's just one sale, it's a principle.
lets see if they reply.
I have to wonder, if I do play using this “demo,” can I transfer the save to the disc copy?
Either way, I’m probably fine just waiting for my disc copy.
What even drives a person to post "yeah, guess I won't need to buy this after all!" yikes. Better not say anything at all.
one would say he's just looking for attention.
But that's fine. As long as we all continue our support for this game, it's going to do great.
From what i've tried in the demo, it's so incredibly good, i can't see this doing bad on sales.
Yet again EU PSN f***ed over, nothing new.
What has been going on with this game in the past month?
didn't fuck up?
I'm not going to judge anyone who benefited from this mistake, yet isn't going out of their way to reimburse Sega, as if they're some kind of asshole; especially considering how much anyone who downloads demos the day they go up likely contributes to the industry already.
And you don't "legally own" the game. If Sony had the capability to remotely remove content, they could, and you would have no legal recourse.
From the PSN TOS:
Sony doesn’t have a way to force a patch to continue to play the demo like when you try to play an online game???
Very sad to see this happen. The last thing the series needs is to lose day 1 sales because they made a mistake in trying to advertise the game with a demo.
I downloaded the demo.
I think I'm just gonna delete it and download it again after buying at launch. Still gotta finish Yakuza Kiwami and watch a shitload of recap videos on the other ones before playing 6 anyway.
It's a really unfortunate situation, and people that plan on keeping it and not paying should seriouslly be ashamed of themselves.
I loved Yakuza 0, have been loving Kiwami, and planned on pre ordering 6 anyway. This series really deserves it.
At least you're being honest unlike some people I know personally are still denying they will still purchase it after getting the demo.
I am a little behind sorry everyone but quick question, did the game get pulled from peoples drives?
It doesnt meant they won't revoke the rights, but so far, we still have it.
It's funny, I got bored of Yakuza 0 and sold that off but I got the full game of Yakuza 6 and can't seem to put it down.
I'll most likely buy it of course. Or maybe I can get someone to gift it for me since it releases the week of my birthday :D
I decided to delete the demo, I was only a bit into Chapter 1. It just did not feel right knowing I truly had access to the full game. I am still getting the after hours edition and I am willing to wait a couple of months since I have other games to hold me over.
Yakuza needs every single sale it can get. I think some forget that it wasn't too long ago that Sega gave up and the series was dead in the west. You can say a lot about Sony, and Lord knows I have, but I'll always be thankful to them for saving the series in the west when they decided to help foot the bill for 5.
So wait, the demo I downloaded allows me to play the full game? Well that saves me $90
Sucks paying close to $100 for a game here.
they should've made it the blue winter jacket demo. Then this whole thing could've been avoided.
shadowman16 over in the Y thread said that when Japanese players started the main game they had loads of trophies pop automatically, so I'd assume that yes it does track it in some way for the western release too.
