Yakuza 2 Coming to North America for the PlayStation 2

Yakuza 2, only released in Japan, has been announced that it's finally coming to North America. Yakuza 3 was announced a few weeks ago, and with North America only having the first installment, it seems now Yakuza 2 is going to fill the gap.

Yakuza 2 directly follows the events of the 2006 original (unlike the third game coming to PS3, which is set in the far past.) Set one year later, you are once again Kiryu Kazuma. You had retired and become the Fourth Chairman of the Tojo Clan, but the way of the streets never leaves one alone, and you come to find this out the hard way when a trusted member of your clan is assassinated by a former allied gang called the Omi. War is about to break out between the Tojo and Omi clans, and you are the only one who can stop the violence from exploding and destroying everything. And, of course, Kazuma will once again be making time for the ladies when not in brutal combat on the streets of Tokyo.

Yakuza 2 for PlayStation 2 is scheduled for release in North America in 2008.

TGS 2007: No Metal Gear Solid 4 Demo Planned

Late last night, we heard word of a Metal Gear Solid 4 demo from 1UP.

IGN contacted Ryan Payton at Kojima Productions, who was handling the Metal Gear Solid 4 demo behind closed doors at the Tokyo Game Show, about the possibility of the demo being released. While he said the team would be interested in considering the release of a Metal Gear Solid Demo, there are no plans to release the TGS demo over the PSN at this time, or potentially ever. It appears that this was all a case of wishful thinking on someone's part.

Or maybe just Kojima is planning it.
