I don't get it. I see it mentioned on a blog or two (as just a title with a release date), but there's no information at all about it. blink.gif I hope it's not just a port of IDAS4, because that would be a horrendous waste of the PS3's hardware.

well still better than another Need for Speed (especially if they're like Carbon or Pro Street)...i know ID4 is a mixed bag, but it's still better and more fun than most other arcade racers....and having a arcade perfect conversion plus some extra tracks wouldn't be bad for 70 bucks...

It would if they don't do any changes to the graphics engine, at least... I mean, come on; have you watched the wheelspin of the car in front of you during an online/instore battle? That's silly, and a limitation of the Lindbergh hardware that just plain isn't present in a PS3.

I don't mind if they port IDAS4 to PS3. But if they do, there better be some damn improvements! That's what I meant.

If it is an IDAS4 port they might give us some extra goodies like Initial D special stage.
But I agree with Nomake if it is a port they better do some improvements.

Anyone think the G25 steering wheel will be compatible with this?

Thats a bit strange..

Theres one that comes out May 29th 2008 (Japan Version) and another thats May 27th 2008 (Asia Version). How does that work?

Like always, if they are gonna release a game a few months away without 1 single information, then theres a high chance that its gonna be delayed to a later date.

lately the asian versions came out a couple of days before the jap version, so that's normal, about the delay, i guess you're right but hope you're wrong....

I'll believe it when I see it. So far, only Play Asia is reporting the title.

I thought I saw someone post about a new Logitech wheel that could turn 900 degrees in the gaming forum?

Its interesting that its not named like the previous installments. I hope its different to the arcade stage game. That should stay in the arcade where the 'arcadey' experience can be had. Almost no one has a setup like the arcades!

Mountain Vengence: Not made by SEGA, was made in the US by Tokyopop, sucked and rightly so. Don't use this game to compare other games.

Initial D PSX: Come on, give it some slack, it was a PSX game after all.
Initial D Special Stage: IDASv2 ported to PS2 with a few more cars and tracks. And a much longer story mode.
Initial D Street Stage: IDASv3 ported to PSP. Never played it, wouldn't know if it added anything.

^ Street stage dropped one course Akina Snow, and the story mode was the same as the arcade. The tuning process was based on a card system as the arcade was based on points. Also you unlock BGM's, 2 videos and backgrounds for the loading screen via percentage(numbers of cards collected). Last it had Wi-Fi game play(never really used), all in all it was a good game.

I own Street stage, and i can tell you its about the same, just a little less detailed graphically, Bunta is easier and no Akina snow, which i really want now since i've been to all the courses down and uphill wink2.gif

Yes, I was hoping for a new Initial D installment for the PS3. I hope it would support Driving Force Pro. It might be the same release date as Midnight Club Los Angeles, which I'm getting as well. With Extreme Stage, I don't have to go to the arcades at the casinos to play Arcade Stage 4. The good thing is that I won't waste my money playing at the arcades and get surrounded by a bunch of Vegas kids playing Initial D Arcade Stage 4. The bad thing? Nothing. I just rather play at my house without paying.

It's probably too early for a big hooray until they give us screenshots.

Play-asia is letting me down again by not shipping to european countries.

I hope there will be some copies on ebay or whatever.

the course select screen and graphics look just like IDAS4. I wouldn't be disappointed if it's just a copy of the arcade version of IDAS4. I actually think it's pretty fun.
