So who is importing this next month?

I am very tempted but I am a little worried about all the Jap text. Has anyone got any idea whether its text heavy.

I really shouldn't bother until march as I have GTA SA, HALO 2 and HL2 to play over xmas but I loved GT3.

Going by the previous games, I'd guess it would be pretty much unplayable, as they have alll been fairly text heavy, and not being able to see what the requirements are for a race / tournament etc are will be nothing short of an impassable language barrier.

Having said that, Im sure there will be a translation up on gamefaqs.com within 1 week of release.

Class! Cheers mate. So why so long for the Euro Release? Are they translating it to loads of different Euro Languages as well as English?

Yep. I seem to remember hearing that there is speech in the game too (in the licence tests, I believe), which will obviously need to be done in each language.

"We can confirm that GT4 will now be released in Q1 2005 for Europe," the publisher told Eurogamer this morning. "The localisation of GT4 across the PAL territories is a huge undertaking because the product is localised into 13 different languages across the PAL territories, therefore the process takes considerably longer than it does in Japan. The GT brand strives for perfection, therefore we need to ensure that the localisation and testing of the product is done to the highest possible standard."

:unsure:

.::: The thing works with a pattern recognition thingy they use on mobiles there as wel. It'll be only a matter of time, before someone copies the pattern to the Internet, so you can print it out and hold aloft before your own EyeToy.

That is, if Sony leaves it to be in every build of course....

I'm still not sure. I have the Asian version (Chinese language) of GT4 proloque and although I don't understand much of the symbols the lady voice-over in the tests more then made up for it. I cleared it easily but given the hugeness of GT4 it may prove a burden to progress in the long run.

Sod it, there's faqs for that :angry:
