Atari Issues Statement on “Budokai 3” Re-release Misprint
Published by 03 January 2006, 9:24 PM EST

There was apparently major error with the initial release of the “Budokai 3: Greatest Hits” disc in North America: they did not put the “Greatest Hits” version in the box! Instead, the original version from November 2004 was slapped in, which does not contain the extra material (such as the selectable Japanese voice cast) promised for the re-release.

Thankfully, fixed versions have begun trickling into stores, and it seems like Atari has fessed up and has issued information allowing customers to get fixed versions:

Due to an error in production, some copies of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 Greatest Hits did not include the game’s new features, including the Japanese character voices. If you have purchased Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 Greatest Hits and believe this feature is missing, here is what you should do:

– By Email via our Support page for Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 Greatest Hits located here.

– Notify the Technical Support representative of your problem and you will be given a Return Merchandise Authorization number, or RMA number, as well as our mailing address.

– Send the game disc, and please include a brief, typed letter with your name, complete address, telephone number, and e-mail address (if you have one) in case we need to contact you, as well as your RMA number both on the letter and on the outside packaging.

– We will send you a replacement game as soon as possible.

– Note that the RMA number will remain valid for 120 days from the date issued, and we must receive your claim within this 120-day period in order to be processed.

You are entitled to this fixed version if you purchased the “Greatest Hits” version that does not actually contain the “Greatest Hits” version, and if you are just now getting around to picking up the game, changes are you will want the most complete version!
