PS3 game prices from Japan
Contradicting an account from Impress Watch, Famitsu says that some PS3 games might be quite cheap, relatively speaking. Resistance: Fall of Man and Genji: Days of the Blade will sell for about 5,980 yen, or $50 US. The best deals will go to mahjongg fans - Mahjongg Taikai 4 is supposed to sell for 5,040 yen ($42), and Mahjongg Fight Club should go for 5,229 yen ($44). Things will only hit or exceed American prices for Japan's most wanted. Ridge Racer 7 and Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire are set for 7,329 yen ($62), while Armored Core 4 is pegged at a substantial 8,190 yen ($69). Regardless, that's far cheaper than the 8,800-9,800 yen range predicted by Impress.
