The recently announced guest appearances of Darth Vader and Yoda in Soulcalibur IV come with a catch-each release will feature a console exclusive Star Wars character.
and its not Yoda
XBOX 360 fans got the crappy end of the deal.
Darth Vader is win. As much as Yoda's fighting style is awesome, no one can disagree how Vader is epic.
Well, if I get this game it will certainly be the PS3 version. Only because of Vader. But I doubt I will be getting this game at all. Maybe rent though.
nah its all preference and my preference is yoda backwards talking lil cool dude yoda, I never liked Star wars to begin with but i liked yoda, Darth vader was weak he only was cool because of the voice of james earl jones other then that he was a whiney lil baby in 1-3 and in 4-6 too weak to stay with the dark side.
Anakin Skywalker is the "Chosen One" foretold by the Jedi prophecy to bring balance to the Force. Yoda is a back flipping midget.
100% Agree with 1
Luke skywlker was the one that was fortold to bring balance back to the force. dumby
I always knew the ps3 was the dark side. And the xbox the goody good side.
i would definetly prefer to get both but it seems like i'll be getting darth:(. Darth is definetly better than yoda but i would have still loved to play as yoda. A huge starwars fan so hopefully there is downloadable content and they get more starwars characters in and maybe even yoda dwnloadable content on ps3 and vader on 360. This alone is gonna make me buy soul calibur. Havent played soul calibur since it first hit dreamcast. Also i wonder when starwars will be hitting blu ray. I would definetly buy that and could be a potential hi def system seller. Hopefully lucas makes it happen
im a huge star wars fan. And let me tell you im getting the 360 version cause yoda is the man. Vader is cool and all but im a huge yoda fan. Also Anakin was the one the prophecy was about not luke. Luke never brought balance. It was Anakin by going to the dark side then coming back to the light. That act showed that neither side was 100%
i think that the 360 and ps3 are both good systems,but who gives a sh*t about it.the only reason that they did that was for people that have both systems and star wars fans because they figured that they might buy both version just to collect them.as for me they could have a ewok and i wouldn't give a sh*T and the people that's fightinf over this are riduclious,childish and makeing a fool of them selfs over 1 damn sci-fi charater.
Yoda doesn't even match the gameplay of soulcalibar. I don't know much about Yoda but i'm guessing he's too small, not mobile, and he uses magic instead of a sword base weapon. You're definately a fanboy if you think Yoda is more suited for soul calibar than darth vader.
Pretty cool fan service but they probably won't get much play from me as my Taki is flawless. The only thing these two will be useful for is using the force to pull her blades Rekki-Maru and Mekki-Maru out of their backs.
Honestly, I do not think either of them are suited for Soul Calibur.
actually yodas very fast much faster than vader he will be like a midget taki see vid
This is going to suck as much as Spawn/Link/Tekkenguy sucked when they did the same thing for SC2. I'll stick with Ivy/Nightmare.
i like darth vader, but im thinkin yoda might be better for in the game since hes short and harder to hit? and the grphx on both of them are sic :) but anyway, screw the characters im getting the ps3 version so the d-pad goes left when i push left. 360 dpad is garbage
Just because Yoda is fast and more agile doesn't mean he's a better fit than vader. Soul Calibar is a technical fighter and Vader fits that slow pace.
In my 25 years of gaming, I am yet to meet a more pathetic fanbase then the army of 12 year old droids. They entirely chose one version on another based on the inclusion of one character instead of another. Did you see them in action? Did you play the characters? You think Namco will just screw up Yoda for the PS3 sake? 360 is the major software seller now. What if the PS3 has some frameeate issues? What is the 360 has the better version graphically? Histroy has shown that in one on one games, the 360 has always delivred the extra touch. I am not talking out of my ass. Check gamerankings.com and then have the guts to disagree.
I love all the pathetic, "yoda's way bettar" justification from all the xbots. If this were reversed, they'd all be gloating about how fvcking cool Vader is. haaaaaaaaa haaaaa! Thanks for the chuckle, xbots.
Im not going to buy this game at all. I'm just saying it's easier to break Yoda's character because he's not a good fit in this game. I never said which version better however I did say the PS3 version has the better special character which is Vader because of his style and his size. There's only a few mutiplatform games that I would buy and this is not it. COD4, UT3, maybe Burnout are a worthy purchase. If the PS3 version had the more inferior character PS3 fans wouldn't hear the end of it either. 360 fans would do the same and bash it. We're just returning the favor :).
one's flash and one's substance
eff Yoda, give us Darth Maul! please please please! Damn... Spawn first and now Yoda??? dont get me wrong, Yoda's ....alright But Maul... wow come on guys!
One is good and the other is bad.Interesting
This is as weird and senseless as it comes to exclusive contents. What's the point of only have a single Star Wars character? I hope they provide a few more that are cross platformers.
I kinda like yoda....but everyone seems to like vadar....but who dosent have a dark side..lol
it makes sense...one is green the other is black..get it?
i like yoda too, but i would probably prefer vader, my friend is a HUGE yoda fan though so he will be happy, only problem is he doesnt like fighting games....oh well ill be getting this game for sure!
I really don't care about this, I just wish I could play Star Wars: the Force Unleashed right now.
Me, too. That's my most anticipated game of 2008.
I can't wait for the Force Unleashed. When will we get some new info on it?
Vader splits my head with the BD Disc!
The PS3 is Vader's Death Star and it's ready to fire the Blu Ray on the 360!
That means the PS3 explodes...
uh dude.... the death star explodes.
Look at timesplitters comment, then look at mine. Read much?
ahhhhh come on guys I'm trying to make a joke here!
I see the trolls are at it already. One of the first comments under the announcement, lol. Anyway, I'd prefer Darth Maul over Vader. He's much more agile, and because of that seems like he'd be a better fit for SC. Either way, these are both really cool announcements. I can't remember Yoda ever being playable in a fighter before, so that's definitely a plus.
after yoda's ass kicking in Episode 3 I want Yoda
I have been a Star Wars fan for atleast a couple decades. I never thought alot of Yoda as fighter until he opened up a can whoop a*s on Count Dokoo in Episode 2. He looked like a 3ft buzzsaw. lol
anyone who's seen the newer movies understands this little guy can move like nobody else. And thus, dance circles of death around Vader. I love Big Black and Freaky, but if I wasn't getting Yoda I'd be pissed. ...just sad that they felt they should make a character exclusive. Can hope for DLC, but I'm so glad these moneygrubbing companies feel they can nickel and dime us to death.
360 got a bad deal here, if you ask me.
Yoda is a great deal he is a lot faster than Darth Vader in that suit. Look on the bright side, At least Xbox is not getting that ballerina like Spawn again. You lose a bubble for saying that.
Wow. I actually chose the Xbox version of Soul Calibur 2 because I liked Spawn.
I want Jar Jar
Maybe he's unlockable as a training dummy on practice mode
Oh sh!t man...you made my spit out my ice tea dude. LMFAO! +1 4U
Just like the PS3! it makes so much sense! :D
Oh I forgot, Wii isn't even a real gaming console.
Except instead of the SC characters, you will get their cute furry Ewok look alikes. And instead of sword fights, you'll have mini games like Dance around the fire and Who touched my bushy tail. It will be Awesome.
Nah Wii got the awesome exclusive Soul Calibur Legends instead.
And 360 has green as part of the color schemes...so Yoda for them. PS3 is sleek and black, Like Vader
LMAO I love the double meaning here of these two
to be honest, i would think of the playstation more of the good guy and the 360 more so of a bad guy. nothing to do with good always wins or anything but........ the the playstation was once the champion and everyone loved them and then xbox came and took all of its games and then everybody turned sides to the dark side. now everybody says the playstation is the underdog. but can this once former champion prove everyone wrong? stay tuned for the next episode of NEEEEEEEEEEEWS FOR GAMEEEEEEEEER'S.lol yea ima dork.lol
but only for the dork part. =)
man you are a dork and that shyt was funny as hell. roFLOL thanks for the laugh.
Vader can only be rendered using the power of the PS3! lol
OMFG. This is awesome. Ima buy both versions now =P Edit: Ok I respect your right to disagree but seriously why? I am a HUGE SC fan and have always been and owned most versions for each console. Heihachi vs Spawn would have been sweet. I love the game and why would you disagree that I would want to buy both... I dont get it...
Ken: Bill, I Am YOUR FATHER!!!11 Bill: NOOOOOOOOO!!!!1
That both characters will eventually become an add on download regardless which platform you play on... (search your feelings)
As much as i like Vader doesn't that mean that i don't want to play as Yoda now and then. WAIT dose that mean that we wont see Yoda fight Vader!!!! double Bullsh!t.
Star wars? Soul Caliber? What?!?
Although Darth Vader seems more cooler to have I think Yoda will be awesome too.
"more cooler" No my 4th grade reading level friend THAT is awesome.
