That would be cool to see. I always wanted to try it.

Well, imo. I hope it comes to X1 BC at the very least.

Vanquish is at around 100,000 now, to Bayonetta's 260,000-ish. The latter's higher profile, cult status and genre novelty probably played some part in its success, along with the release timing. Still, considering Vanquish's more obscure nature as an IP, its performance isn't necessarily bad.

The Yakuza series' growing momentum and visibility would definitely be on its side as far as a PC release goes - I agree that it appears to have the potential to stand out and do surprisingly well.

GAF told me that the Yakuza director doesn't like PC and that it won't be on PC. Is this true?

It's not so much that Nagoshi-san hates the PC platform, he's just one of those "old-school" japanese devs that have always made games for either arcades or consoles.

Plus it is a fact that at the time the series started, it was one of the few series aimed at the market of "older" japanese males rather than the kids crowd which a lot of JRPGs and stuff tend to target. To this day, the game is made for with that target audience still in mind so naturally a PC version isn't something that they give a lot of importance to.

Also worth mentioning that the games aren't massive AAA affairs that need to sell millions of copies so they don't NEED to from a financial standpoint.

But with the push they've started giving this series again in the West, I wouldn't be surprised if they are at least CONSIDERING a PC version for the newer games somewhere down the line.

...and After Burner Climax, Virtua Fighter 5, etc.

That was the result of general backend fiddling by Valve (if you click through to the changenumber page, you'll see it affected over 600 apps from a wide range of publishers). The app hasn't been touched by Sega's hand since February 2014.

Thanks for the clarification.

At least it shows that the ASKA engine and tri-ace are willing to port it to PC
