A number of online stores are now opening pre-orders for this upcoming Idolm@ster game on the Playstation 3. Whilst there will be no English translations made available in this version, nor is there a hint of there actually being one anytime soon – there is still the option of purchasing and enjoying this Japanese version as there is no region lock on PS3 games.
One example is Play-Asia.com [HERE] which is selling the game for $US 92.99 which is not that bad a price for a Japanese game which are generally more expensive then games over here. The game does come with the first three sets of DLC content from the XBox360 version which alone comes to something around $100 in value (Which you can peruse HERE, HERE and HERE). Either way, if you have been waiting for the chance to play the game – this might be your chance at playing it! The game is due to be released on the 27th October 2011.
