GameStop Offers Exclusive Yakuza 3 Pre-Order Incentives
Most people equate March 9 with the US release of Final Fantasy XIII but if RPGs aren't your bag, there's one PlayStation 3 exclusive that might capture your attention.
Yakuza 3 is set to launch on the 9th, too, and based on what we've seen and heard from the Japanese reviews, this one is a definite gem (and the best entry yet in the franchise). Furthermore, if you decide to pre-order the gritty action title from GameStop, you'll receive a few little bonuses. First of all, you'll get $5 off the purchase price, dropping the retail cost down to $54.99, and on top of that, you'll get the "GameStop Exclusive Challenge Pack." It's downloadable content that boasts a few two-player mini-games like bowling, darts and pool. You'll also be able to unlock new costumes for the main characters once you finish the game. If you want to pre-order online, your code for the DLC should be e-mailed to you and if you drop your deposit in a brick-and-mortar GameStop, you should get a little card with the requisite code. For a bunch of new screenshots, head on over to Examiner.com; this is one title that might avoid notice in March due to the major blockbusters scheduled for that month.
But you should certainly take a look at it. Yakuza has always featured the dark presentation of a GTA with a finely honed story, and the combat is always brutal and engaging.
