I'm sorry, but the 360's d-pad automatically makes it inferior.

Beg For Mercy3424d ago

but you know if they run into any major hurdles they gone scale back the ps3 version so the two games will match each other.

gaffyh3424d ago

@1.0 - EXACTLY what I was going to say.

Doctor_Doom3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

Thats a great Marketing Idea lol

By using your logic Every FPS and TPS game are inferior for the PS3 and thats about 80% or more of the next generation games.

ZuperAmazingCooKie3424d ago

Also makes it inferior. I find it ironic how developers worry about getting the 360 up to speed and release statements like these and yet release garbage for PS3 or don't even make PS3 version of games for a change. This is the same developer that promised 3 exclusive games for PS3 at least with their "Cellius" initiative and has delivered none, and while they were at it they've delivered tons of average JRPGs for 360, and both Ace Combat 6 and Beautiful Katamari which weren't stellar either.

Namco is a turd.

felidae3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

i'm sorry but i can't play any game with a d-pad. not on the 360 and not on the PS3.

playing SFIV with the 360's sticks works very good - no problems at all - but i think an arcade stick works best for fighting games.

[email protected] .. they really don't know how comfortable it is to play games on the 360. i know it because i owned a PS3. strange system .. really really strange!

Bnet3433424d ago

Yeah, Xbox 360 DPAD is really horrible. I was surprised to pull off a dragon punch with Ryu on that thing and I'm not being sarcastic BTW. People who have an Xbox 360 use the joystick or buy an arcade stick. My playing style is weird but I alternate from DPAD to joystick during matches. Sounds weird, but that's how I play.

OgTheClever3424d ago

I personally find the placement and sensitivity of the PS3's analogue sticks superior to that of the 360, yet I would expect there are far fewer people to vouch for their preference of the 360's D-pad.

Mwaan3424d ago

Already have a solution to this problem. And there are many. To bad we can't do a cross platform match because I would probably own you with the 360's analog stick.

Dannagar3424d ago

I'll likely get this for Xbox 360 due to achievements. However, I'll just use my Street Fighter 4 control pad.

IdleLeeSiuLung3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

Yeah, I must agree with the terrible d-pad on the 360. I had to buy a fight pad to play SF IV since it was so bad.... I also caved in and ordered a joystick probably arrive in May/June. It's as if monkeys tested and approved the 360 d-pad at MS.

On the flip side, it is this abnormality that caused SF IV for the PS3 to sell so well so hopefully we can get the supposed improved d-pad on the 360 that exist only in Europe. WTF!


"Anyone who plays fighters on their 360"

"Already have a solution to this problem. And there are many. To bad we can't do a cross platform match because I would probably own you with the 360's analog stick."

It still isn't an excuse to make a terrible d-pad. I had to buy a fight pad just even play SF IV. Even just changing weapons in shooters, I have significant problems with the d-pad on the 360.

ceedubya93424d ago

I'm going to use my street fighter 4 fightpad for this one. I Can't play SF4 (or any fighter) without that controller in my hand. If I got any of these games for PS3, I'd still go for another option to play besides the PS3 controller.

The standard dualshock/sixaxis is bearable, but is still not perfect by any means.

gaffyh3424d ago

@Jimmy - with FPS and TPS is that the difference between PS3 and 360 controller is negligible, sure 360 controller is made for shooters, but there were plenty of shooters on PS2 (and there are plenty on PS3) and it works fine.

The d-pad on the 360 however, completely sucks (in every genre of games), and playing SF4 with the analog stick is the worst fighting game experience ever. So I will not be getting Tekken 6 on 360, but for those who only have a 360 and like fighting games I recommend you buy Tekken 6, because it is by far the best fighting game available (tho the online sucked in Tekken 5).

Sitdown3423d ago

"I'm sorry, but the 360's d-pad automatically makes it inferior. "

Umm correction...the controller would not make the game inferior...but perhaps the less desirable console to play it on. And just maybe..just maybe there is somebody who is fine wit the controller.

"Paying to play online. Also makes it inferior"

Watch me use your crazy logic....the ps3 can be consider the inferior version because guess has an higher immediate cost to play online...and guess what, remember that thing called the six axis...yeah, also 360 users had rumble ability from day one...does the ps3 now have the inferior version if I only have the six axis?

I say all that to say this....the same way you can nitpick insignificant stuff..the same way it can be done on the ps3.

caladbolg7773423d ago (Edited 3423d ago )

I don't believe that the XBOX360 version of Tekken 6 will be inferior to the PS3 version. IMO, they will probably be almost EXACTLY the same. But there is absolutely no question in my mind that Tekken 6, as a game title, will be held back because it is being developed for two platforms rather than a single platform.

Take from that statement what you want. I make no inference as to which console is "better" than the other (albeit I do have my preference). But I'm of the opinion that splitting development (and consequently work, manpower, creativity) across two platforms will always stunt a title.

Even so, I've never been much of a Tekken/Soul Calibur fan. I much prefer 2D sprite fighters like MvC/KoF/GuiltyGear/BlazBlu.

hay3423d ago (Edited 3423d ago )

I don't think it'll be inferior. I bet they'll still use partial arenas with tons of prerendered backgrounds so both consoles will be more than enough to handle it.

Aquanox3423d ago

For the screenshots and short footage shown a can't see a single reason why this game wouldn't be able to run in the console that ran Virtua Fighter 5 and Street Fighter IV flawlessly.

GiantEnemyFlop3423d ago

the 360 will and always have the inferior D-Pad

RememberThe3573423d ago

Except for the fact that the DualShock 3 has the best sticks in gaming.

Lifendz3423d ago

"We are really struggling with the 360 but we can't tell you that because we want to do well with 360 owners."

You won't get that from Namco or Square E.

fusionboxer3423d ago

But i've since converted to Street Fighter ism.

I'm sorry Steve fox. Don't look at me that way. I still think your the best boxer in fighting games. I just think where tekken is a battle of who can juggle the other guy first, Street fighter is the battle of complex strategies, and timing.

Immortal Kaim3423d ago

Am I the only one who dislikes Tekken? The game seems stale...

likedamaster3423d ago (Edited 3423d ago )


-good point.


"My playing style is weird but I alternate from DPAD to joystick during matches. Sounds weird, but that's how I play."

My brother's a longtime fighter veteran and he does the same. I'm almost unbeatable online till I fought this one dude and got raped. I asked him what controller he was using(I use fightpad) and he said "original 360 controller", I was floored!

Fans? What fans? Tekken fans are all PS users...

v1c1ous3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

xbox 360 owners have NEVER owned a ps1 or ps2. they only owned an xbox 1 and xbox 360 in their entire lives

/a-urr-durr mode

blackpanther253424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

Tekken 5 is on psn with online.
Not saying there are no tekken fans on the 360(cause i have one) just saying they decided to put tekken 5 as a psn game on the ps3 and not the 360. That alone must mean something.

Bnet3433424d ago

lol vicious makes a good point.

pain777pas3424d ago

If the PS3 sold more they would not have lost any exclusives this is pure economics and devs have to realise this early or they are out in the cold when it comes to releasing exclusives at this time there was no dog in the business bigger that PS family but that is not the only factor the cost of developing games has gone up so exclusivity from 3rd party publishers does not make sense.

creeping judas3424d ago

vicious makes a stupid fanboy point!!

how sure are you 360 owners have only ever owned an XBOX1 ?? any proof of that drivel ??

I owned a ps1, skipped the ps2 and now own a ps3, and shockingly a 360 too!!!

kewlkat0073424d ago

Only a fanboy would agree with his comment.

d-Pad stink on the 360 pad for fighters but more so for games that require half- circle motion like street fighter and such.

Still the d-pad is horrible.

ceedubya93424d ago

That was definitely sarcasm. I think you missed it.

creeping judas3424d ago

Ok if it was sarcasm, then I guess my sarcasm detector is malfuntioning and I retract my comment about vicious being a fan boy.


IcarusOne3423d ago (Edited 3423d ago )

That's the dumbest, most assuming statement I've ever heard. I love my 360 just as much as I loved my PS1 and PS2. Of them all, my PS3 has provided me the least amount of thrills. Unless I count watching blu-rays.

So if that's you trying to sound smart and clever, stick with ignorance. It seems to be your default.

And for the rest of you: .......... that's the sound of the world's smallest violin. It's been playing for the PS3 cult a lot lately.

iHEARTboobs3423d ago

It was S A R C A S M. I guess that went over your head too. lol

hitthegspot3423d ago

What planet are you living on? I have always had multiple consoles. I think that you are confused and meant to say that xbox users that own a PS2 won't get a PS3 until Sony offers the PS3 with backwards compatibility again.

Halochampian3423d ago

wow.. seems as if many people's sarcasm detector is broken.
