Why is nobody talking about Tekken 6?

1- It's not a PS3 exclusive.
2- The fighting genre isn't that popular anymore. When was the last time we had an Amazing fighting game? How many fantastic fighting games we had this decade?

BlazBlue, Soulcalibur 4, Street Fighter 4, Dead or Alive 4, Virtua Fighter 5...a fair number of awesomeness. Certainly not as much as the past gens though, of course.



GOTY Contestants this year: Dead Space 2, Dark Souls, Tales of Graces f. Everything else can suck it.

Its not fair to say TEKKEN 6 hype is down because of it loosing exclusivity althought its stupid to say it would be this less hyped as it would be used as ammo in the console war threads

BUT

example -- Final Fantasy XIII

its hype is anything but down since loss of exclusivity, in fact its still wanted badly by PS3 owners & hype is increasing

The simple fact is, these fighters just aren't popular anymore........no-one cares for them that much

But haven't JRPGs lost popularity.  I think the reason FFXIII remains of hyped is becuase the footage and graphics are among the best this gen technically and artisically.  There are a bunch of loud mouths complaining of the game coming to the 360 but they are just a very small yet vocal group.  Not to mention that the series has managed to remain as popular as it is despite the fanbase being divided by FFXII.  This just shows how much Final Fantasy means to the general public.



It seems to have been exactly the same for over a decade.

It's because Staude is the Tekken Overlord and no one wants to play just to be destroyed by him.

Oh really....we'll I'd like to see about that one day.

I'ma.....not bad myself.



I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.
I don't need your console war.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

The fact Europe is totally getting ripped off on the limited edition pricing probably doesn't help.

$150 is not equal to £150, no matter the exchange rate or VAT.


Removing VAT it is still $216 US. With VAT added using US pricing it works out £103. So pretty much they decided to add £50 on for no reason at all other than wanting to.


Just taking the complete piss. Doesn't deserve any hype treating the fanbase that way.

Because fighting fans are too busy playing street fighter right now. Bad luck namco, capcom stole your thunder. In general it's taken so long and the fighting genre is losing even more prominence. A month before the game comes out people will be talking about it. But it's not like shooters or Fallout 3, where people constantly anticipate the next installment.

That's so true.



And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this PS4... And this gaming PC. - The PS4 and the Gaming PC and that's all I need... And this Xbox 360. - The PS4, the Gaming PC, and the Xbox 360, and that's all I need... And these PS3's. - The PS4, and these PS3's, and the Gaming PC, and the Xbox 360... And this Nintendo DS. - The PS4, this Xbox 360, and the Gaming PC, and the PS3's, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The Gaming PC and PS4, and Xbox 360, and thePS3's . Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.

Obligatory dick measuring Gaming Laptop Specs: Sager NP8270-GTX: 17.3" FULL HD (1920X1080) LED Matte LC, nVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M, Intel Core i7-4700MQ, 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3, 750GB SATA II 3GB/s 7,200 RPM Hard Drive

Those Namco morons have waited soooo much to release this game, that the hype is just not there anymore. Besides, the franchise itself is not what it used 2 b, and Tekken games have become stale.
The fact that Tekken 6 is multiplattform now doesn't help, either.
BTW, SF4 had absolutely nothing to do with this.



sf4 was garbage.

I wanna play game to have fun not break my fingers.
