DOA4 delayed from 12/10 to 12/17.
Tecmo Release at top of page

With no RPG at launch and now this, Xbox 360's launch in Japan is starting to look pretty bleak.


And yes, I'm still alive..
need to upgrade MMCafe soon (which I've been saying for quite some time now).

We are also experiencing the delay here in the US, Maddy. Used to be scheduled for US launch (Nov. 22), but then pushed back to Dec. 1st. No official statement saying that it has gone gold, and some online stores are now listing the game as Dec. 8th for release, as of earlier last week. I guess there are some major bugs and/or play mechanic errors.

I guess I can re-buy DOA3 to play on my 360 and play it on 720p, just to see how it would look. Heard it will run pretty well, in contrast to the problems Ninja Gaiden Black had with constant slowdown on either 480P or 720P resolution.

Pushed back a week? Well, what else is new about the 360? Last time I heard, only 2% of Japanese gamers would go and buy a 360.

I heard more favorable numbers than that, but with DOA delayed, it wouldn't surprise me if it was that low now.

But...Japanese survey results never tell me anything useful anyway.

Posting in a Professor thread for the first time since I´m in teh forum!! Internet: serious business.

And, well, usually I prefer when they delay the release date of a game, since I want to believe that it´s for the better. Hasty releases are not my cup of tea, better to wait a bit more and get a better product.

Regarding XBox360 in japan, I've read lots of contradictory surveys, so I'm not sure what to expect. I think it will sell much more than the XBox, but that's not saying too much anyway.

Salutes to the Professor! It's nice to see him around.

I think Xbox360 isn't exactly doing the best moves towards its launch in Japan, so it's quite predictable the sales won't be overwhelming... that's a pity.

The true gaming value of the xbox360 is selling it to idiots who somehow have tons of money and then buying 3 current systems with the profits.

About that, and to say sth on the topic... ^_^;

I don't know almost nothing about DOA3 (or this saga in general, besides the "basics" -ehem-, for that matter) but did it have the stage interactivity these one seems's gonna have? Because I saw the trailer (yeah, I know it's just a trailer, but) it left me really amazed. Specially the street stage, with the cars hitting the fighters and stuff.

I believe you misunderstood what he said, as you've somewhat misquoted him on that (and Ninja Gaiden) before. The deal is that Team Ninja doesn't have an EXCLUSIVE agreement with Microsoft anymore. That just means that other system ports are possible in the future, but it's up to them. Itagaki has expressed (what I believe is ill-placed) disinterest in the PS3, though that may be a business choice.

360 was just too rushed... but at the same time there's this frenzy over the system. I'm still kind of puzzled over how the mainstream popular of game players are snowed by the 360 lineup... probably the only launch game really worth playing is Condemned... but it's really nothing compared to a game like F.E.A.R. Even Quake 4 and Call of Duty 2 are inferior to the PC versions... yet the general public is just eating it up!

I guess the core audience for video games has really just completely shifted... anyway once DOA4, Full Auto, and Gears of War hit... it could justify the price tag... but not by much.

I'm also a little fearful for Nintendo's US future because of the 360 success. If everyone is buying up the same old recycled crap with marginally improved graphics... I think many of these gamers won't be able to get into a lot of the new ideas Nintendo is trying to bring with the Revolution.

Yeah, everyone's getting off on the 360's graphics at this point... even though the lineup's not really making it worth buying at the moment. The current system "shortage" sounds really suspicious to me, too. "Well, the PS2 had a shortage at first, it came out first, and everyone liked it, right?" Well, even though they hurried the system out, at least not all of the games are rushing out the door too.

I'm sure DOA4 will still win the "best fighting game ever" award on Spike TV anyway, though.

Itagaki confirmed all the DOA games (4, X2, CC) and a game called "Project Progressive" as Microsoft-exclusive. You can even see them in one of the recent japanese DOA4 ads. He never said anything about Ninja Gaiden 2 being exclusive (and the game wasn't in the ad), but when asked about NG2 being on PS3 (kikizo or 1up interview), he dismissed it.

Didn't actually answer it, though.

He did say, after receiving the PS3 dev kit, that he thought the PS3 was awful to develop for (originally, he said he was excited about seeing what the PS3 was like).

Wow. Yeah, that sounds better... I still thought it was weird that they'd have nominees that hadn't even come out yet as best game of the year and all that, though... but there does seem to be a little more variety this time. I kept thinking Madden and Halo would win a million awards, then fuse together into a huge Agent Master Football and destroy the awards ceremony.

Well for what I read in a french magazine interview he clearly did say that he wont be 360 exclusive anymore.
Not enough cash from the previous xbox release, is maybe be a reason good enough to think twice at the Multi-port release.
And Itagaki always said that enven if he likes the xbox , he's always interested by the stronger system, which on the paper is the PS3.

And if the 360 release isn't a sucsess in japan, soon or later he'll maybe change his mind.

My problem is that I often have no idea who is conducting these surveys or who they are asking. Is it the Japanese equivalent of Gamefaq's poll of the day? Without the context for where the results came from I never know how to take these factoids when they get bandied about.

Re: Xbox360

Yeah, system shortage sounds like a marketing ploy to release more units a few months shy of the release of other consoles. I also predict a pricedrop of the 360 and the games ($60 for a domestic game is absurd) come release day of like say the PS3.

As for how well the system will sell in Japan...I heard that it will get some version of Super Robot Wars......yeah thats going to sell quite a few.

I still say they're trying to copycat the PS2 release down to the letter. I'm sure they'll "somehow manage" to make some more for the Christmas season, and the comment about getting more in February is just another way to drum up more demand for the system when the "secret stash" gets unleashed in December.

From what I could tell, Microsoft never said they wouldn't make more until February. In fact, if they didn't, then their sales figures wouldn't be possible. I heard that weekly restocks were planned, but would be unpredictable. Well, whatever...I dunno.

The point is, when I asked various employees at various places they said they didn't know when they would get more 360s and some of the game stores that said "January/February" had a new shipment today. I think tomorrow is supposed to be the "big" day for restocks if any of you are rabid about getting a 360 (to keep or sell).

Yes somehow... The Jin demo showed for the PS3 was indeed a tekken game in "work in progress" for PS3.
The fats is peoples already thinked to TK6 when Namco said that it could be TTT2.

So a TK game is for sure made for the PS3, know the question is TK6 or TTT2...

I know nothing about Tekken, so forgive me if this is already confirmed for the PS2 or something:

But could the PS3 Tekken just be TK5:DI with saucy new graphics?

As far I know,(and Tekkenzaibatsu forums helps me) TK5DR is annouced for PS2.

So TTT2 would be TK5DR + old missing characters like Jun, Michelle, Ogre, DR B... and a tag system, with DOA4 like graphisms.

No, please. DOA4 is only marginally better than DOA3. Plus Tekken's graphics are a bit more realist than the dollface whores from DOA.



OMG! You are so wrong! Look at the backgrounds! They look so much better! That's what's most important in a fighting game anyway!

And the models look great! They're just different! If everything had detail, then everything would look the same! The models in DOA4 are as good as the models in VF5...actually...no, they're better, because they don't have ugly detail.

Detail sucks in costumes, too. The costumes in DOA are are simple and not confusing, unlike all the ugly details in Tekken/VF5 that distract me from the boobs. Good costume design is sexy costume design, and when characters change design, it just confuses me.

Heh heh. Yeah, I think that goes back to the comments about the VF4 character designer... they made Sarah's boobs dangerously pointy. I had changed her name to "SpikyGirl" or something involving sharp objects...

This fake was made by Proxide (at least the nice one) and it wasn't made to spread a fals rumor, but it was made far a request which is totaly different.

Making the fake in order to amuse the furom member is different than to release it very where....Only Gamefaqs memebers did fall for those...
And the TZ forum did have all the TRC list before there where released, same with TK5DR since some moderator have some direct link with namco themselves.

No, not an April fools event, though... that might be an idea, since I'm planning to re-open the site around that time.

But anyway, I might've said it earlier, but the site will be changed to a format where users can contribute news. Iggy just came up on the top of my head since he throws a lot of Japanese news on the BBS.

It doesn't always have to be real news of course, kind of like this.

OOHHH tetris is being "spiced up" by Xbox 360... It has been (correct me if I am wrong) 4 years since I bought my Xbox, and already Next gen consoles are being produced... In my opinion (stating the obvious) Xbox should have waited until some solid titles were put out, so they could at least spur some success with the japanese market... What games are they comign out for Japan??? I heard(probably untrue) in school that they were selling a bundle for $1000 with 40 games... when they only have 6 titles readily available after the Xbox360's launch.

When I got my xbox the first game i got was DoA3... I don't remember much of the game, but i remember the steamy videos of the girls after you beat the game with them HaHaHAA! But it was still a very good game, too bad I traded it in.
