Fans of the Yakuza series have long clamored for a western release of Yakuza 5, and they are finally getting it. Developer Sega has announced that game comes free with all of the DLC released to date.
More than that, North American gamers who pre-order Yakuza 5 get a 15% discount off the $39.99 price tag, as well as the “Fulfiller of Dreams” static Theme.
Yakuza 5 is an open-world game starring five crime-ridden characters spread across five different cities in Japan and featuring numerous side quests and mini-games. The mini-games include the brand new Club Sega, which consists of classic Sega title such as Virtua Fighter 2.
The DLC pack is titled “Another Drama,” full details of which can be found on the official PlayStation Blog.
When Sega revealed back in December 6, 2014, that Yakuza 5 will be offered digitally in North America on the PlayStation store, fans jumped for joy. You would be surprised at the massive cult following the series has.
Yakuza 5 is playable on the PlayStation 3.
Street Fighter V Supports PS3 Controller, Alex is First DLC Character
For PS3 owners wondering what to do with their old arcade stick, here is some good news: Street Fighter 5 on the PS4 supports not only PlayStation 3 controllers, but also the console’s arcade sticks. Capcom has also confirmed that the first DLC character will be non-other than Street Fighter 3rd Strike’s Alex.
Street Fight 5 releases on February 16, 2016, for the PS4 and PC with 16 characters, while the story mode is set to arrive later on in the summer as a free update. It supports cross-play between both the PS4 and PC.
Capcom made the revelation via twitter, stating “We can confirm that Alex will be the first DLC character and he will be available in March!” in one tweet and “Additionally, the final version of #StreetFighterV (on PS4) will be compatible with PS3 controllers” in another.
Alex is part of a first wave of six characters that will be added to Street Fighter V in 2016, with the other five being Ibuki, Urien, Balrog, Guile and Juri. The exact order of their release has yet to be announced.
The iconic fighting game series went through some surprising hoops to get to where it is. A development partnership with Sony made it exclusive to the PS4 (sorry, no Xbox One love) and its beta had a rocky start.
Regardless, the game is primed for action and it looks more polished than ever. Is Street Fighter 5 a must get for you this gaming generation? Let us know in the comments below.

Could this be the game that rejuvenates the franchise after the mixed reactions garnered by the previous year’s lacklustre effort? Only time will tell…

PS4, Xbox One Performing A Lot Better than Xbox 360, PS3
The PS4 and Xbox One are selling like the hotcakes, so much so that analysts at the NDP Group report they are performing relatively better than the Xbox 360 and PS3, and not just by a little…
Both current-gen consoles are selling at a faster rate than their predecessors ever did, having collectively outsold them by nearly 40 percent.
Analyst Liam Callahan stated the following on the matter:
“…after 23 months on the market, combined PS4 and Xbox One sales are 40 percent higher than the combined 23 month totals for PS3 and 360.”
While Callahan’s assessment only takes into account the U.S. market, it’s nevertheless a strong indicator of the success that both Microsoft and Sony are enjoying around the world.
Sony, in particular, is blowing the competition away with the PS4, nearly outselling the Xbox One 2 to 1 globally. The U.S. market has traditionally been a bastion for Microsoft, but even it’s being dominated by Sony.
Console war aside, the fact that both the Xbox One and PS are performing better than their predecessors is good news for gamers and for the wider video game industry. With games like Halo 5: Guardians, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Fallout 4 coming out before the end of 2015, you can bet their sales momentum will only continue.
