According to early data uncovered by the Japanese site, Drill-No Blog
, Yakuza 3
has sold 380,000 units in its first week -- the second-best launch for a PS3 game in that country. If the numbers are accurate, Yakuza 3
(Ry? ga Gotoku 3
in Japan) will only have been bested by Konami's 2008 powerhouse, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
, which sold around 465,000 units in its first week
. Unfortunately, according to a comment Sega made to VG247
, Western gamers may never get a chance to continue the adventures of Kiryu Kazuma as the publisher has no plans to bring the game to North America at this time.
