Street Fighter V's only been around for a week, and it's already breaking records over at EVO.
That's pretty impressive.
I've never watched an EVO tournament. Those any fun?
Yeah, it's cool to see how skilled some people are in some of these fighting games. They make it look so easy.
^^^ That's COD tournaments dude. Evo is great if you have an interest in fighting games or competitive gaming. This year is looking really special after they've hired out the Mandalay Bay Event Center for the final day, if you've never seen an Evo tournament before, this year (especially on the Sunday) will be a great time to give it a watch.
They are really fun... I mean, last year first match Gustavo "801Strider" one of the top USA players facing a 10 year old kid (cause anybody can sign for the tournament). The kid was using a Ken dressed as a cowboy (that made it even more cute), and yeah Gustavo just beat the crap out of the kid... you know: destroyed him! The audience went mad, and were booing him, and Strider just laughs and screamed and celebrate, arms in the air like a real champ. The kid stands and Gustavo pushed him out of the scenery like a dck... I was lol crying! It was just one little moment: so much fun.
@kotaku - I hope he at least yelled "welcome to the real world" at him at least five times. My most memorable moment was definitely Ultra Grand Final, that match had just about everything, I'd been up all night watching Evo and it was 5am in the morning yet I was glued to the screen it was so intense.. shoutouts to Razer for their arcade stick quality!
https://www.youtube.com/wat... Best one ever!
@justlikeme My god...the impossible parry! I cried a little bit. That's mighty impressive!
title should read :Street Fighter V is Broken
By the numbers, not tournament broken it seems...
It was built for tourney play, that's it. The game is seriously incomplete
One of the main reasons why Sony went out of their way to secure SFV for their system. PS4 is going to seriously dominate at this years EVO being a system that hosts not only the top fighter SFV but also other fighters like Guilty Gear and KoF (if it releases in time). I'm sure Sony is going to market the hell out of their system at this years Evo.
Still can't figure out why KoF went exclusive and why it looks like it should be Maximum Impact 3 instead of XIV.
It went exclusive, because SNK said, Sony was rising fast and it was there safest place to put there game/s, to help establish them again.
Yea, I'm having a hard time trying to figure out why SNK went exclusive for PS4 also. SFV has a reason seeing as how they paid for the game to be on PS4 but SNK has no ties to Sony and everyone of their games has been on the Xbox. And gawd you are right about it looking like Maximum Impact. It's like SNK is incapable of making games look like current. @PaperClichePixel If that were really true then shouldn't SNK try and put their latest KoF on every system imaginable? Being available on more than one platform would be the safest place to establish themselves again.
Threw up in my mouth a little. Likely based on low sales, they may not see a reason to make multiple versions if the sales won't cover such a thing. You have to consider that maybe the last game didn't do so great and they just can't afford such a set up. Similar to Onimusha ,MGS2 etc. Consider the first didn't do well on XB, thus the sequels would go on less platforms. They tried it, it didn't perform well...thus went back to limited platforms. They are not honor bound to keep losing money on many platforms just because at 1 time they did. So keep losing money and making the same mistakes over again for lolz? What does such loyalty really mean when they are out of business? Also fyi a game only appearing on 1 platform isn't really just due some exclusive "ties" it could merely be due to they can't afford to make many versions. Consider some publishers can't even afford to make games in multiple regions, let alone many platforms. Its not the norm to be on many, many platforms folks, being on only PS4 might be just do to them not having the funds or not wanting to risk losing money else where. Consider Square, Sega and Capcom have lots of PS exclusives...but also consider they also have lots with Nintendo too. It might not be due to any deals or "ties" it may be just do to region and install base favoring such genres. They have to go where the money is and some times its not with many platforms, certain platforms or like I stated certain regions. We really need to stop assuming all games are releasing on 4 platforms and if they are not....its some deal or "ties" as if making games on all platforms is the norm. Its not. Not all developers or publisher have such funding to do such a thing or even risk such a thing.
@EDMIX Exactly what I was going to say. You want more proof in the pudding check Arc System Works games, that only were on PS. @Gangsta The 3DS dominated cause it has great 3rd party games that went unoticed or promoted. I guarantee you if the PSP & Vita had a slew of games that the 3DS has, they would of sold great.
My god.. really? Are you going to pretend the instances where King of Fighters games were exclusive to PS2? Of course not, PS4 and Sony exclusivity is questionable now, despite it being possible that sales indicators could be putting these publishers from releasing a version that costs them to make and doesn't see that much return in sales. Additionally, XB1 to the PS4 is not what Xbox 360 was to the PS3 last generation, and with PS4 rocketing ahead, plenty of Japanese developers are not looking hard at Xbox, en masse, when making business decisions - it's not hard to see why they went exclusive. But all you have to even do is refer back to PS2. If you don't like what I wrote here, just refer to EDMIX's comment that basically says it all.
You do realize this is also on PC right? Gurantee most of the population will be on that instead of the PS4.
I'm sure nobody forgot about it being on personal computers But you're fooling yourself if you think the majority of the players will be on PC. What fighting game has ever had more players on a computer over a home system? Not to mention this was heavily marketed for Playstation even though it was no secret the PC would get it.
You're wrong it's gonna sell way better on console... But the good thing: support cross-platform, so is no longer a PC vs Console thing. And the PC players will get matches for sure Buy it if you know how to play, and if you're a noob wait till June: So Hadouken my good friend!
Most of the population don't even know PC's can play video-games I'm afraid.
@Kotaku77 You had me at hadouken! Here's a bubble to you. "Hadouken!!"
Sadly KoF has already been confirmed as a side tournament this year however Guilty Gear is confirmed and will even have grand finals on the Sunday so should hopefully get treated a bit better than last year.
Every game gets treated as a side tournament compared to SF. But it's good to see GG and KoF getting more action.
More to do with Sony needs a game at EVO. Nintendo and Xbox already dominate EVO with there own games. SFV was easily the best pick for them because 1 they dont have a fighter franchise of there owm and 2 Sony dont have any good games to compete at EVO
Guilty Gear Xrd was there last year, you're sadly mistaken.
No platform *needs* representation at EVO. Xbox and Nintendo just happen to have exclusive titles. Having a fighter only on your platform isn't going to affect anybodys market share or revenue. And you're embarrassing yourself if you think Microsoft and Nintendo "dominate" EVO. Marvel, Tekken, Mortal Kombat, and yes, Street Fighter all take precedent over Smash and Killer Instinct.
Lol Micro and Nintendo dominate Evo with their side show games......?
@STARS Guilty Gear is not a Sony game or is made by Sony, its also available on PC so its another 3rd party title Sony needs to lock down because they don't have there own fighter franchise. @KwietStorm What are you talking about? None of the games you mention are PS games. There all 3rd party owned and most of them are multiplats apart from SFV which is a Capcon game. Those games are bigger but Smash and KI are made and owned by Nintendo and MS and MS also have another big EVO game which they own and make as well, ever heard of Halo? Again Sony need to pay out companies to compete in EVO while Nintendo and MS just release there own games. Sony tried and failed with PS All Stars and Killzone just doesn't cut it. This is not a dig at Sony its a reality check for those ditching the Big N and Xbox.
Agreed. They would be right to, they might as well go ham on this deal as I'm sure that is why they secured it, or one of the reasons.
This is going to be fun watching this year's EVO.
Very impressive indeed. I expected it would too. I hope everyone is having a good time with SFV thus far.
Say what you want about the missing modes (yes, I wish they were there from the start) but the gameplay is probably the best I've experienced in this franchise...and I've been playing it since the arcades in the early 90's.
EVO will be awesome :D
Cant wait to see the high level players go at it
Looks like their core audience is happy.
And that is the main thing, the casuals who would pick this up for a month or 2 are annoyed about the lack of content though core players are okay with whats here and know whats coming
So how many exactly entered? I wish I can go play MKX and Tekken 7 but I live on the east.
Pizza here's the site I know is not exactly what you asked for but try to register first and see or Wikipedia for avgs of ppl that entered EVO before http://evo.shoryuken.com/
Oh man I'm actually looking forward to watching. I'm really enjoying SFV and want to see how the pros play.
Without sounding like a hater , it beats me how it can be released full price with 16 characters , I know more are slowly on their way along wit various modes but I cant help thinking this would be paid for DLC . I mean cmon not so long ago everyone vilified Capcom with Streetfighter x Tekken for charging for content that was already on the disk. Everyone has very short memories . Im staying with Ultra SFIV on PS4 love it or hate it but people like you lot are the reason Capcom is still getting away with it.
Once again if people would use that thing called a brain and did a simple google search this whole"PAID DLC"crap would stop. http://shoryuken.com/2016/0...
Super street fighter 5 might already be on the disk.
I can't support this game in its current state. im a huge street fighter fan but the game is pathetic as of now. 1 year down the line it'll be good but i cant believe how badly capcom fucked this game up.
@gansta-red Ok, how do you know Capcom can do that if they wanted to? You said it yourself, NONE of us know the full details of their deal. So with that said, how do you know there isn't anything in this agreement between the two companies that bars such a thing from happening. And yes, I'll keep putting things an ALL CAPS as much as I feel like it as much as YOU DO. Why you're getting heated about that is beyond me When Sony says develop I read the word DEVELOP. I don't KNOW the full details just the way you don't. But I know how to READ. You're saying "what's stopping Capcom from doing etc,etc, etc". Well with the fact that YOU YOURSELF keep saying we don't know the full details of the deal, how do you know if there aren't stipulations to prevent such. All we have are what BOTH companies are telling us. And like I keep telling you, if this was JUST CAPCOM and their money alone, you'd be right. But now that the company BANKING their project is coraborating everything Capcom is saying, Capcom can't tell us one thing and do another like they've done in the past. And yes, just because I said I don't feel like commenting anymore doesn't mean I won't change my mind and do so (like I did with this comment).
