    I do not believe that a JP equivalent of the Platinum Mafia II came out that includes all DLC. So, the DLC would have to be purchased separately. The problem is that the DLC that we refer to as Joe's Adventure and in Japan is called Joe no Ikizama (Joe's life or way of living) has been delisted. So, you can get Jimmy's Vendetta by setting your 360 to the JP region and having 1080 JPY on your account (a little over 10 USD). However, you can't get Joe's DLC.

    The game itself is easy to get. US Amazon has the JP import version for 54.15 USD. You can get it new from JP for under the equivalent of 40 USD. However, when you pay shipping and possible middlemen fees, you're probably looking at over the equivalent of 50 USD so you might as well buy it from Amazon.

    So, is the non-availability of one of the DLCs a deal breaker?

    Yes.

    It would be to me, too. However, a lot of people ignore DLCs. Nevertheless, the topic post specifically mentioned them--hence the question.

    Can it be played on a JP console with the JP version of Mafia 2 installed as the base game?

    The JP game was in English but with JP menus & subtitles. It played on JP NTSC 360 consoles, though. It's odd that the JP marketplace would sell DLC that won't play on JP consoles unless they intend their JP customers to download it on X1s where there is no region lockout.

    I don't think it's against this site's rules, but it's definitely against Microsoft's rules, so I would avoid discussing it here.
