Anyways, so I started yakuza 3 remastered the other day. Surprisingly looks pretty decent. I've heard the combat is really weak but I guess I'm gonna have to tough it out. Many people have praised the story. 



Its really tough to play older yakuza games now after playing 7. I wanted to play Remastered collection but I can't seem to enjoy the gameplay because it is too outdated and stale for me because I just finished 7.

Let’s use the PlayStation platinum thread itself, happy to rename it.. 

Naa it will be separate. Both work differently. 

 

On Xbox  getting 1000G is pretty much means platinum as base game contains max 1000G. Anything above 1000Gs are added DLC achievements but MS dont separate them like PS. All get mixed into base achievements.  Gears 5 has 4k GS because all DLC achievements got mixed with base game launch achievements lol. If you have 1000G in any game that means you have platinum :P

 

Plague Tale perfect example of this as base game only got 1000g and since no DLC was released, so Gamerscore never went above 1000G.

 

Achievements need trophy like platinum system imo.

Drop it to easy and play for the story I guess. I have always loved yakuza stories. Haven't played Yakuza 7 yet though. Playing in order. First I'll finish the Kiryu saga and by then 7 will be on GP I guess.

Now Compare Medium to Demon Souls n Miles and that is the difference exactly between mediocre next gen and true next gen.i.e Series X and PS5 :giggle:

 

Returnal and Rift apart coming soon. True next gen stuff coming on PS5. Continue the Indie Bhindis on GP at 8k 1000 FPS. Whata next gen for Xbox owners  :giggle:

 

Bas baat khatam tata bye bye.

 

 

 

 

Although I do agree Xbox doesn't have any proper next gen quality games yet nor do they hold a candle when it comes to quality of exclusives Sony has and probably will never have unless Bethesda can go back to its roots and deliver for Xbox this generation. I have been the hardest of hardcore PS fanboy for years owning everything Sony had to offer from PS2 to PS4 era. Never even looked at Xbox , apart from Forza series. there is still nothing that I personally feel remarkable or great on this platform, maybe Gears is decent, not a Halo lover at all.

 

But ever since the backwards compatibility program was launched by MS, I seem to have slowly slowly started giving MS respect and appreciate what they are doing and even embracing the idea of myself ever owning a Xbox in future, there entire lineup of X enhanced backwards compatibility of original Xbox and 360 games is a remarkable feat and hits your nostalgia if you are a old school gamer. I bought games like RDR, GTA 4, Complete Splinter Cell series, KOTOR 1 & 2, Dead Space series etc. again despite owning many of them on Steam so I can play them sitting on a couch on a big TV. There is a certain one console to play them all feel here, which sadly Sony can't offer and doesn't care unfortunately about. 

 

I was missing my PS3 a lot ever since selling it in 2012, hence after selling my PS4 last year, I actually bought a PS3 again to play some of those old games like Motorstorm, Killzone, Metal Gear, Resistance series etc. that I loved and cherished. Its hard to explain the love of old games, not every gamer thinks that way these days.

 

With Xbox One X being the superior console in almost every third party game with better resolution and graphics , and the same continuing this generation as well mostly, I jumped station and bought a Xbox Series X ahead of PS5 this generation, my gaming laptop with a GTX1060 was outdated as well.  I'm more than happy to wait for PS5 digital edition to come later on and hopefully with drop in price once the chaos is over or even a PS5 Slim in a couple of years time to play my big PS4 library of games.

 

Deep down I'm still a Sony fanboy and probably will always remain to show true colors if pushed by Xbots :P, but overall I have outgrown this console fanboy brigade and learned to truly appreciate and respect both Sony and MS on what they each offer and bring to the table to entertain us.

you come to this thread, and you speak logically respecting the decision of other adults and not mock/diss/babysit them? you look at both sides and be pragmatic about choices and say "to each his own"??! how dare you?

Frankly, I would suggest you  YouTube Yakuza 3 story and move on to Yakuza 4.

 

Yakuza 5 is the real GOAT, and you have to reach there  quickly. If there is one mainline Yakuza game that will make you quit the series permanently - it's Yakuza 3. The game is built to frustrate. Even random mooks will keep on blocking and dragging out the useless fights- and they are there every 2 steps you take.

 

At least Yakuza 4 is good enough (though still high combat frequency) and Yakuza 5 is right up there in the leagues of Yakuza 0.

Bhailog please HALP. Koi reply toh do.

 

Getting crushed blacks on XSX. :panic:

 

Xbox right from the xbone has had a weird gamma curve. Are you sure HDMI deep colour is enabled on the port? I think it's called HDMI enhanced on Sammy TVs. Tagging @Karooo as he has one.

Agreed. Best place to play old xbox games no doubt. The library is crazy good :majesty:

I have ordered :fear1: might take 2-3 weeks ideally.. 

Plates? If yes, then let me know about if you incur any customs.

People were saying to add "Mark it as a gift" in the order remarks section but I don't think that will work.

Skins for Series X.. Happy with white plates.. will be doing a custom paint later this year.. 

 

For how much its value is, I don't think you should worry much about customs man..

 

I ordered cycling jerseys worth 150 pounds n paid zero customs..depends on whose assessing it actually.. now anyway it will ship in May, try your luck..

Skins and jerseys are fine but plates will come in a big box and I don't expect custom officer to understand.

My friend ordered a keyboard worth around 120 USD and got charged 45%. I know it was an electronic but a stupid officer can do the same with the plates.

 

Custom paint sounds nice though.
