If Namco wasn't too busy being money hatted by Micro$oft then they would have found the solution that would have made their pockets and everybody happy. Released the game in 2008 for PS3 then ported the game for X360 and released it 2009. They would have gotten all those huge sales numbers from PS3 and also gotten the smidge of sales from X360. The fans would have loved them and they would have profited.

The trouble is, Micro$oft is too smart and too rich for the optimal solution to have been reached. Micro$oft probably paid extra just to delay the PS3 version from being released and also to make it so that both versions were equal. Don't you just love Micro$oft? Always fucking around with their competitor's customers.

Giving the 360 the left over shit isn't making everyone happy. Everyone from PS3 to 360 is getting the left over shit (graphically) from the Arcade version plus loads of online/offline modes and customizations and more to make up for it. Microsoft never paid Namco for Tekken 6, that was their decision. Microsoft paid Namco for Tales of Vesperia and that came to bite them in the ass didn't it?

Should have stayed exclusive.

Would have came earlier and gotten better reviews because of that. I also think it would have sold more as an exclusive.

EDIT: Also like to add that TekkenDR sold over 2Million on the PSP...

Also, the game is awesome. Stop being haters.

 

@kyliedog yea and added some actual dept to the game. Soul calibur was a huge let down when it came to it's story mode....

It's funny you say this because saying the game should be exclusive is being a hater. Tekken 6 is an arcade game first and foremost and whatever system it goes on gets seconds. The Playstation brand might have had Tekken for a long time exclusively on consoles  but times have changed. Roll with it. This is why I cant wait to destroy every VGChartz PS3 fanboy in here on the PS3. Most of you guys aren't even real fans (not saying you, but most people talking about the game).

The game should have remained a exclusive because of the three following things.

1. More focus.

2. Earlier release

3. Hype.

 

How am I a hater of the game when all I do is defend it ?

Also I am a real fan. Sure I'm not insanely good at it but I concider tekken 6 the best installment in the series yet, not to mention a fantastic game.

I have all tekken games. I'm the definition of a fan. Even if i'm a casual player.

Making the game exclusive to the PS3 would've done nothing for the game. It never did anything for the games in the past and it isn't now. It would just mean that it was exclusively on the playstation.....perhaps that would've made you guys happy though. The hype for Tekken is just fine. The thing about Tekken is that it has been selling slowly because of shitty Tekken 4 and has had to resort to legs (which the series definitely has).



Stage man you talk the talk but you kicked me from the game twice, screw the lag! lets do this even with lag!!!



I think Tekken 6 going multiplatform gives more gamers the chance to play one of the best fighting series than having the game be exclusive to a certain platform.

if they didnt delay the PS3 version 18 months or so ago then this game would be sitting on some beautiful sales

I never kicked you. The session shut down because of your connection speed.

I call bullshit. Capcom reinvigorated everyones trust in fighting games. Other games were lucky to even make sales so suddenly. Tekken for the past two games now seems to surviving off of great legs. I thought Tekken 5 sold less than it did.



why are people so quick to call someone a fanboy for stating their opinion?

i couldn't care less if the game was exclusive to playstation or xbox. i just want the best gaming experience possible. i KNOW that tekken 6 could have been a better game if they focused on one system. i'm not saying that it would be a perfect because some of the things they decided to do with it weren't for the best.

i just feel this whole everything needs to go multiplatform and we're going to try and make it the exact same game for both systems isn't always the best move. there have been third party exclusives this gen that have sold really well. i think companies are sooo worried about money that its starting to effect the integrity of the games that we buy.

At the end of the day, i'm a customer. its no different than going out and eating at a resturant. if they bring out your meal and its not cooked right, is it ok for them to say "well we're trying to get this food out as fast as we can to as many people we can. also, the meal you ordered is hard to make, so it may not taste right" HELL NO! you would demand your money back and never eat there again.

i guess my whole point in starting this thread was to point out some of the silly things these companies do. i find it funny that gamers defend their actions sometimes.

 If Namco focused on PS3 then Tekken 6 would be better than the Arcade version, load time and resolution issues would not be there.  Just look at Tekken5:DR on PS3, it's way better than the Arcade version. 

360 fans don't really care about fighting games anymore because of their lousy d-pad and tekken doesn't have boobs like SC4 nor leggy babes like SF4, that's why were seeing the low numbers.  I think 360 fans wouldn't have cared if Tekken came out earlier, it's Micro$oft that's worried that they may lose a significant portion of their install base to PS3 if they allow PS3 to keep their exclusive titles. 

If M$ didn't pay for Tekken, why is it that both games were released simultaneously when the PS3 version was ready by 2008?  My suspicion is M$ always muscles its way by paying or making some sort of iresistable deal to the company.
