Best program for learning Japanese?

Hello,
I am thinking about getting the Rosetta Stone Japanese 1-3 pack and was wondering if there are options that work better than Rosetta Stone? From what I have read RS is one of the best to quickly learn a language. Right now my main goal is to just speak anot too worried about reading and writting at the moment.

I know of someone who learned German through Rosetta Stone and said it was much easier than other methods they have tried. No experience with Japanese though.

I tried both: Rocket German and Rosetta for German. I wanted to learn German. Not bad, but I did not learned really to speak fluent.
Then I went to evening courses, 2 times per week, 30 evenings. Again not bad but not enough.
Then I had the chance of more than 6 months 3-4 hours per day.
Now, that was the best. I can speak, not yet fluent, I can understand, not yet all, but good enough for what I need.
I forgot to mention: now I live in Germany and I work with German people, but many times I still speak English

By the way, I am not so bad with languages, beside my native language I also speak some French and of course English.

So, when you speak about the software for Japanese, well I do not want to disappoint you, you may have some basic knowledge, but my suggestion is to take some real lessons.

I think I'll be OK to start with a program of some sort. My wife is Japanese so I'll have someone that I can talk to every day and help explain the language differences. I just want to make sure I use the best program for the money and not wish I tried something else. Later depending on how the program goes I will probably take some college classes.
