Somehow the game is less of a game if its multiplatform.

 

If its exclusive it gets all the hype.

 

Heres how it is.

 

PS3 Fans - Hype every exclusive up and make it a 360 killer

360 Fans - Dont hype any game up, it  could be the best game ever and no one would mention it.

Wii fans- They got so many games coming out they cant hype them all up.

Wii fans tend to hype their games to death as well. Little King Story, Conduit, Madworld, No More Heroes, Dead Space, etc. The games they hype though have terrible sales.


And the only game that sold badly from the bunch is Dead Space...and that wasn't hyped at all.

Conduit, Madworld, Little King Story and NMH all sold pretty poorly......

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

I try to fight the hype for games.. And end up failing in the five days before the release. The 360 delayed the release of the game for too long. It came out in arcades back in 2007, and, of course the game took a while to create, so, technically, we're playing a game that's a few years old....

I think Tekken should stay on PS...
Think about it...
If you bought a 360, you did it for FPS, not Tekken.
It caused a delay.
It decreases the quality of the game (because they want them as close as possible, so, the PS3 graphics got nerfed a bit)...
People aren't going to talk about your game all year, so, it'll be forgotten about if it doesn't see a release..
TTT2, or Tekken 7 better be PS3 only... I don't want delay, and I don't want my quality toned down. It doesn't even seem right on 360. Tekken 6 should have been a timed exclusive if they were gonna do this.... No reason to hold everyone up. I'm not going anywhere near the 360 version if I've got the PS3 version...

I want to play it now... -_- At least it's fully reserved.

More unbiased thinking from Garnett. Wow, how could we do without you? You're right, 360 fans never overhype games. In fact, they never gype any games up!

Oh me.



 

 

Excuse me but wth is Tekken?

i think its a game that doesnt really need the hype to sale well. people will go into the stores and see it and pick it up just because it has tekken on it. regaurdless if they knew it was coming out, i know for me ill be getting it first day



Tekken will never flop because it's Tekken. It's like Madden---never really "hyped," but the core fanbase always knows about it, and is large enough to produce decent sales.

That said. Namco really dropped the ball here. I have yet to see a single commercial for this game. SCIV was EVERYWHERE. With appropriate marketing, this game should've outsold SFIV. Now, looking at the pre-order numbers, I'm not even sure if it'll beat SCIV. The only thing that may save it is that it's way more popular than either SC or SF in PAL.

Are you for real?

soon to be....

Besides Street Fighter, this is THE #1 fighting series around, IMO. I CHERISH this series!

IGN reviews indicate slow load time for Tekken 6 as one of its flaws. I attribute this to lack of optimization that it would have had if the game had been PS3 exclusive. Honestly I don't even know why Microsoft bothers with fighting game franchises, their controller sucks for it anyway and all their fans would rather play FPS than to duke it out in fighting games using their horrible d-pad. I wonder how much they paid Namco to wait till the X360 version is ready before releasing the PS3 version. Must have been a shit load of cash, expected profit over period of hold up time + development cost + extra fees to convince the executives. Microsoft would have been better served by funding startup game developers than by paying off established gaming firms to secure it on their platform. Sure, they think they're pulling one over the competition but the customers get screwed with each of their damn shenanigans. Fuck, I hate Microsoft for screwing everyone over just so they can "Win".

Your tears are tasty....



N64 is the ONLY console of the fifth generation!!!

I've been to a lot of forums this year including sites that have hardcore 360 and PS3 fanboys, and during this time of year everyone is posting their "What To Get" lists of upcoming games. Among many of them I saw games like Uncharted 2, Ratchet, MW2, Halo ODST, L4D2, AC2 and surprisingly even the Saboteur frequently. However, Tekken 6 has rarely even popped up on anyone's radar and with launch just 5 days away I find it a little disheartening.

So what happened? Well in my honest opinion I think Namco announcing the game as a multiplat game has actually damaged the game's potential market. Tekken was always seen as Playstation's premiere Fighting Series and for the most part thats true. And when it was announced to be going multiplat (And the fact that Namco shelved the PS3 copy so they could work on the 360 copy) has literally sucked away all hype for this game.

Just my 2 cents, what do you guys say?


The only reason why I see multi-platform possibly hurting the buzz is that prevents the game from becoming ammo in the arsenal of exclusive titles for a platform.  Beyond this, all the characters are supposed to be unlocked.  Also, we are years away from the launch window, when a specific title release makes noise.  The fighting genre is also a bit tapped out now.  You can also factor in that Namco already released a fighting game for the platforms this generation.
