Initial D 4 coming to PS3

Now I can only hope this comes out, outside of Japan because I haven’t seen much of Stage 4 in arcades over here (other than Trocadero). I guess I could always import it seeings as the PS3 is region-free.

This summer Sega has Initial D: Extreme Stage as one of their Japanese PlayStation 3 titles, which is essentially a port of Initial D: Arcade Stage 4. Previous home versions of Initial D: Arcade Stage included in online racing and Initial D: Extreme Stage is no exception. Players will be able to race rivals over the PlayStation Network. The first screenshots over at Famitsu look pretty nice, but besides a few pictures of a night battle there isn’t much else known about extra features, if any, over the arcade version.

See, there is still love out there for arcade games. In this case so much love that two mums duked it out because one of thier kids was hogging it and the others kid couldn’t play it! What I really want to know is what was the game?

Story is from Massachusetts. One of the mothers was there with her 9-year-old on his birthday, and she got upset because the other woman’s child was reportedly hogging an arcade game, The AP reports. Both women are now facing charges of assault and battery.
