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.

Are you serious? The sales for the PS3 version of Street Fighter 4 is 1.44 million and the sales for the 360 version is 1.28 million. They sold approximately the same so stop using bs facts for your arguments. If the PS3 version was finished first and would be superior if released exclusive then why does it have atrocious loading times in comparison to the 360 version? Your arguments are fanboy bs. Namco decided to release it multiplat on their own because it is obvious that the fighter genre is much weaker this gen than last. If you want to be blind and continue ignoring common sense be my guest. That fact that you don't understand that any serious fighter fan would have a arcade stick to use and would never use the standard console controller shows how lost you are.

Because the port was worked on later and the original came earlier????

That time used for porting could have been used for optimizing the ps3 version. Needing a 4GB install just to be comparable to the "LATER PORT" version of the game would pretty much give you the impression the PS3 version was shelved. 

Um no. The original would've been released earlier if there was no port. They wouldn't used the port time to optimize the game.

If they were smart they would release T6 when it was ready as ps3 exclusive and now T6:BR as multiplatform.


Thats just foolish. Who is going to fork out their money for two similar versions of Tekken 6 (one with more content of course)? Tekken fans most likely and the majority of people who bought this are newbs. Go on PSN if you don't believe me. I have yet to fight someone who uses a technical or respectable character. 

Who is a respectable fighter, iyo? The only people I faced online were Alisa, Eddy, Christi, Devil Jin (they mostly use the lasers) and Lili. It bothers me when people use Alisa. They spam with the same moves or fly around in circles and using the chainsaws. She's an awesome spammer and helped me get the survival trophy.

I've fought a Lars once, but he got owned bad. I stopped playing online because of the terrible lag. One thing that is bothering me in Tekken 6 is that my character's ending being unlocked without using them in arena mode. It's killing the replay value. On the bright side, I won't have to face that douchebag Azazel with them. I agree with everything you have said in this thread.

PSN right now is flooded with newbs. Just figure them out and take them out. As you said, they will be using Alisa, Devil Jin, Christie, Eddy and other cheap characters. King is cheap as hell in this game. I no longer consider him a technical character. People use the same moves with him. I message some people and ask them why they play so cheaply, and most of them say its because they don't know how to do combos, parries or strafing so they survive off of special moves, trips and throws. Alisa is deathly cheap, I mean come on she flies around and has saws on her hands. LOL

Lars is a good character, he just has to be figured out because he attacks low and does a lot of spinning moves. I don't really get so much lag online because I connect my PS3 though Ethernet chord instead of using the wireless connect. The wireless advantage sounds nice with the P3, but its nothing compared to having the Ethernet chord connected. Whats your PSN account name?

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.

You fanboys sicken me. Since when can you expect a superior experience from an arcade port ever? The version of Tekken 6 you would've received even without the 360 version would've still come out the way it did. It's fanboyism that blinds you from understanding this fact. The PS3 version of the game was finished way before the 360 version. How naive are you guys? Namco will never sell out the arcade elitists to give PS3 a superior version of any fighting game they make.

I hate to correct you because I think you're cool, but Namco has released a superior home version of every arcade fighter since Soul Calibur came out on the Dreamcast.  Tis true.  Tis true.  I still scoff at the idea that the 360 version held the PS3 version of Tekken 6 down, though.

My PSN is DJChuy

Yeah I use wireless (need it here). I was doing fine for the first few days, but after that, it was a disaster. I heard they're going to add online co-op. Badass if true. Just hope there isn't any lag there.

Ok STAGE,

since i'm a raging fanboy that said he couldn't care less which system it came out on as long as it was a great experience, can you please clear up theses "facts" you speak of.

how do you know it would have been the exact same experience?

so arcade ports of tekken 3,4,5, dr, virtua fighter, street fighter etc weren't superior experiences?

how do you know that the ps3 version wasn't done or close to being done before the 360 version? (even though i never said that it was)

please let me know buddy. my raging fanboyism just won't let me deal with the facts. maybe you can help me with that.

before you answer those questions, i want to make myself clear because you obviously don't understand. t6 took longer than normal to be released. the only assumption one could come up with is that it took longer to be released because it was later announced for a system that it wasn't originally planned to be on. now that the game is released, it has mixed reviews and its not selling that well on the 360. my question to you all was do you think it was worth the extra time and effort. my opinion is no not really. i think its great that 360 owners get to play the game. it just gives me more people to talk about one of my favorite games. on the other hand, no i don't think it was a great idea because the game took forever to come out and IN MY OPINION i think they spent more time making sure both games were equal instead of tweaking the game so it could be the best experience possible.

now i know that was nothing but fanboy jibberish to you but i felt that i needed to say that before you respond.



Around the Network

Yeah the online co-op should be coming soon.

At anyrate, i Main Seraphim Jin (Thats what i call my custom White Winged Angel jin) BUT i dont spam lasers left and right, i know 2 10-hit combo moves, 5 5-hit combo moves, and 8 to 10 3-hit combo moves.

Though i do use lasers, but ONLY if its part of a combo move OR whoever im playing against is spamming the fuck out of a single move, mainly Alisa as mentioned or chrite and eddy, Lars and Lili are insane spammers to if people figure out how they work, lili has this unfair back-flip thing she does that leads into a Unblockable kick and even if you tried your stunned half the damn time, while lars does this freaking move you'd see Ryu use in street fighter, he puts his hand up then forward then lightning goes everywhere and you wont be able to avoid it, its possible to avoid but hard, oh and again its unblockable.

Overall i'd say the wrose people to fight against, is as mentioned above except i'd add Law and that frickin Bear in there those guys are pretty cheap to.



While I'm sure it got PS3 fanboys riled up, which there's nothing wrong with that, it also may have had possible reprecussions as to how the fighting competition is. The only one I can think of atm is Punch-Out that came out this year. Perhaps if Tekken 6 stayed a PS3 exclusive, maybe MS would've wanted Rare to make Killer Instinct 3 exclusive for 360.
