Why!?! Honestly, why would a developer bother to do this? I would think releasing different versions like this would take away resources better used elsewhere.

May or may not be related, but anyone feeling generous and want to gift a couple thousand $?

Wonder how you knew about that

Here's hoping they don't make it 110 versions. One for each pc manufacturer.

Hmm... Windows 7 had a way to "fake" the manufacturer BIOS to install OEM versions of the OS. Wonder if this same is possible with Windows 8 to get those games? Also, is the game given to you for free if you have the machine... this stack is interesting.

Thanks. Guess that's out of the question. At least for now. I have no plan to buy a new notebook just for one stackable game. Though I guess I will keep a look out for a friend who has one.

My local best buy didn't have an admin password, so I just drove over there, added my account, spent 5 minutes going through setup. Then I spent 25 minutes downloading PacMan VAIO. There internet was slow as shit.

I then spent 45 minutes playing and getting every achievement in PacMan VAIO. I then deleted my account and hauled ass out of my best buy.

Going back next week to play Toshiba. I hope they don't kick me out, I was lucky to play it during a time when they were so busy helping out all customers. They started to get annoyed during my last 5 minute Pac man run without dying because they noticed what I was doing.

Also, PacMan VAIO is *NOT* free. You have to pay for the game. When you download the free version it comes up as a trial, and you have to pay 9.99 as DLC to get the full game.

Singularity is a fun game. In fact I convinced 4 people on my friends list to buy the Japan one to boost it. We only need one more person, and i know how much you like it from insightful posts like that one, so if you wanna fill in the last boosting spot you"ll be more than welcome to.

I was hoping for a stackable JP ver of Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider (as both series have had a past history of JP ver stacking), but I guess it's not stacking this time around. I'm saddened and relieved at the same time as I wanted to double dip on these fantastic games, but my wallet and time are spared to use on other things.

official reply from Namco:

Good afternoon,

Thanks for getting in touch and it’s good to hear from you. The only version of the game that I’ve been made aware of is PAC-MAN CE DX Windows8 as we never released separate versions of the game – it was always just PAC-MAN CE DX Windows8.

Regards,

xxx

4-988648-728356?
The region code on the spine is C3U 00073.
I have the Platinum Collection version so the above info could be different if you somehow found a regular version.

Thanks for the replies.
The version I am looking at has the barcode: 882224738125
It is listed as NTSC but when I asked the seller said asian and there is no cdero rating on the cover which should have been my answer but I wanted to double check. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.



I'm going to be 'that guy' and ask another question. This is to do with Japanese DLC. I know the dead risings need a credit card but do other things? I thought I saw a few months ago someone say the system had changed and so anything Japanese and downloadable is now a real pain (I could be wrong). If not I would guess it's just japanese account, points and possibley a VPN?

so can you (or anyone) confirm that you cannot unlock ANY achievements unless you buy the full version of VAIO or TOSHIBA Pac-Man?

Was wondering if it was possible to redownload the game on your home nonVAIO Win8 machine now that you have bought it on your account. It would be much easier to just go to a Retail store with Toshibas and VAIOs and just buy the games and play em when you get home...

I really doubt it. You'd probably get a similar error message as you would when you try to download nokia games on a non nokia Windows Phone.

On the VAIO version you can't unlock any achievement, even the easy "emit sparks for 5 seconds". You can only play the 5 minute mode and it stops 2 minutes in with a splash screen telling you to buy it.
