Hmm maybe I should pick this up. I sold my copy after hitting top 5 worldwide in Iroha DH Dry on ES. But White Knight Chronicles was such a let down. Do all the original players still play from when ES was first released?

What's so 'best' about it?

Japan's PS3 "Best" games are the equivalent to the "Greatest Hits" PS3 games of North America.

Like this one.

I think once GT5 rolls out, even if IDES2 comes out, its not gonna sell well
cuz GT5 has a track editor, so ppl are gonna be making BUNCH of touge tracks from Initial D for GT5 (possibly upload online and ppl can download)

plus, GT5 is more realistic and there are gonna be hardcore ID fans out there to make them (trust me, there are hardcore ppl enough to cosplay a hachiroku lol)

unless sega gets their act together and make a story mode for IDES2 as well as putting back in every track they ever made, it will not sell well

latest disappointnment from sega, Yakuza 3. Great job on keeping the jap voices, but that was the only pro, the rest are cons cuz too many things got removed

sega's been epic failing since ID4

I'm going to order my "The Best" copy of this game in a couple of days and when I finally get it I hope I can play some of you guys online. Is it still pretty active online in general?

I would like to buy this version but don't know where to buy it! Play-asia marks it as "sold out" and the only sellers who have it are from hong kong (through ebay), honestly I'd like to not buy it from there because I will wait too long to get it.

About the GT5 release, sega should make IDES2 based on arcade stage 5 because it's much better than AS4 (wich this game is based of)

@ Sappo: Waiting to get this game will make it all the sweeter when you actually get it and are able to play it. I'm ordering my copy on Friday because I get paid on that day, then I play the waiting game til it arrives.

lots of used copies here in Taiwan, and proly everywhere in Asia
if u got a friend in Asia, you should ask him/her to buy u one and ship it to you

there are used copies I see for about $33USD and new copies for $45

Well I got my "The Best" copy of the game and it was worth the $45.00 price (which isn't bad at all). Works great and plays online as advertised. If you were thinking of getting it but wern't sure well then take it from me, it's totally worth it.

I just got a used copy from an Import store for only 15 bucks,it didnt have the manual tho,but the case and disc itself are in perfect condition.From what the Owner of the store said I cant get online with it,which is ok for me,not much of online player anyway.

So Im like a total noob to this game and just start playing,is it anything like Special Stage,cuz I have that and I had a blast with it happy.gif

Unfortunately I have no friends in asia, but I bought my the best copy through ebay for 45$.

My question is.. I really would like to play online, I have a PAL ps3, will I have some problems with online play or it will go just fine?

Congrats on making A3!

After all these years, I still don't have an aura. I have failed myself miserably. T_T

Curious,do you tune the cars all out or do you try to find a balance?Or it just best to go all out when tuning and get everything?
