Description:

REMEMBER WHEN MARK HAMILL WAS IN THIS

Oh wow, look at all you “millennial gamers” thinking you’re so hard, buying an NES Classic and believing you know something about 80’s Japan. No way, posers! Everyone knows the ONLY way to learn about a time period is to play an open world game set at the time! While you’re over there twiddling your thumbs and whipping Dracula in the you know what, we out here playing Yakuza 0 getting drunk in Kabukicho and beating losers up in the street for money!

While you’re sat at home jumping on misshapen turtles, we’re eating every single piece of food available for purchase in Dotonbori in a leopard shirt with a white jacket. And please, keep on telling us you know about 80’s Japan. Keep pretending you actually like Yoshi’s Cookie and tell us how that makes you an expert while we’re out getting curb stomped in front of the tattoo parlor by Mr. Shakedown.

Or, you could always forsake your silly ways and join us here in Japanese Vice City for less than it even costs to see Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse in IMAX for the third time. But that’s just our advice. Up to you if you wanna take it and learn something for once, or if you just wanna stay home and jump around as Nana and Popo, that’s fine too, but it’s also very lame. Yakuza 0 is available now for $11.50. Make the right choice.

So there are two different versions of the game on sale, one for EU countries and one for ROW. Now the list of included countries for the EU version is a lot longer than the list of exluded countries for the other version. Does this mean I can purchase either one if I live in a country that is on the EU list, but not on the other List?


#3

This is a good question for EU users, because if both work for EU, it’s usually preferable to buy the ROW version. Some games have not only regional activation restrictions but will also enforce the same regional play restrictions. In this particular case, if the EU lic is this one: https://steamdb.info/sub/290682/ it doesn’t seem to have play restrictions outside the zone it was activated.

Which one do you buy if you live in Australia?
Edit: Well I guess I can’t?
