Gametrailers presents, Soul Calibur IV - CES Trailer:
LMAO, this is awesome!
I didn't care about this game until now. I was all about Tekken 6. AND I got a PS3. Dang, 2008 rules for PS3. We got Vader, folks!
"I didn't care about this game until now."
... and that's exactly why Namco put in those characters. They did the exact same thing with Soul Calibur II for the GameCube (Link), PS2 (Heihachi) and Xbox (Spawn). To keep people like you interested.
BloodSinner, The game now has caught my eye. I just love starwars, and cant get enough.
The only problem, The light-Saber should cut through the swords. Not too fair of a fight.
You're right, Bloody. I didn't care for Heihachi for my PS2 though. I thought we got jipped. But as a big Star Wars fan, we got possibly the greatest villain in cinematic history (behind Vito Corleone) on the PS3. I have to get this game just because of that.
(Hmmm...just occurred to me that we got the big bad guy with the PS2 AND PS3. Is Namco trying to say something? haha)
I have the lame PS2 version as well (don't get me wrong, I LOVE Soul Calibur). I just really hated having Heihachi. I regret not getting the Xbox version. Spawn was just too awesome.
Zoul Calibur will be my #1 fighter if they added Snake(PS3) and Chief(360)and DukeNukem(pc) together...
that will be EPIC
The guest characters add a lot to it.
I feel like more developers should do things like this to seperate the different versions of multi console games.
It's what every fanboy wants and makes the games appeal more.
Wouldn't it be cooler if like XBOX 360 was getting a certain version of Grand Theft Auto, that look place in New York and PS3 was getting a different version that took place in Los Angeles or something.
Instead of both consoles getting the same game?
That way fanboys would like Grand Theft Auto more, and each fanboy could take pride in their own GTA.
Thats a great idea. Bubble for you
he beat me too adding this video lol
This will definitely differinate the difference between each console. Where most multi-plat are the same, give or take a few things, different characters, could make a huge difference in what people go out and buy.
i can hear the star wars people popping a blood vessel
A sword stopping a lightsaber!? Blasphemy! Blasphemy I say!
Cool looking game though.
It may be weird but remember that Lucas' concept for the Jedi Knights were heavily influenced by the Japanese samurai and Bushido code. Heck, the word "Jedi" came from a Japanese word. So, in a sense, it could be Namco's (a Japanese company) way of saying thanks to Lucas.
he would just slice you and your weapon in half...
^^^ thats what i mean
Vader is one bad ass [email protected]
Yeah...that mess was hot.
But at least I get to play as Vader. Not a big Yoda fan.
yoda would be cheap in that game, cause he's so short.
He would be like Gon in Tekken. But Gon was easy to beat if you used Heihachi, Paul or Law...people who could do massive low damage.
Too bad there was no action of Vader & Yoda fighting.
I also wonder in Yoda/Vader can use the force, in game or was that just a cinamatic.
Bah, Eps. 1-3 completely ruined Vader for me. He used to be my favorite char. but then I come to find out his past and well...
So I have to go with Yoda on this one, if for nothing else than seeing a little green frog stop a 200 pound sword. :)
Vader became a whiney lil baby in 1-3 he's holding me back wahhhh wahhh i can be better wahhh wahhh.
but i didn't really like vader in 4-6 either he was cool just for the sole fact of james earl jones doing his voice otherwise he was weak ass and couldn't uphold being evil.
yoda was all ways cool but he got cooler in 1-3....but then again i never really liked starwars either...
This game will make me very very happy :)
it showed yoda stopping the sword. it would be NASTY if you could do that in game. not keeping my hopes up though.
though i think they should have done kratos and the arbitor or something.. oh well
do halo characters, and sony characters *kratos* but I SAY! have them in both versions of the game.
I hated SC2 it was retarded that each system got its own character, Making me buy all 3 games...which is why in the end I just didn't buy any of the games and just rented em.
No! Light Saber vs. Soul Sword Folks. This is all about the Soul *Edge remember?
edit;? there should be a really cool effect though if one doesn't block against the the sabre attacks (imagine the carnage), but that will not be televised, hence Manhunt. C'mon we gotta be practical here. You could say this game is like a "because-we-could" type thing. Still so hard to believe, but damn playing with Vader is going to be surreal. The graphics, surround sound, the Vader breath. WOW, freaky.
Namco needs to get a clue and not pull a retard move like they diw ith SC2 which caused me to rent those games only and never buy them.
DONT MAKE EXCLUSIVE CHARACTERS! put both yoda and vader in both versions of the game damit!
OR I will buy neither yet again.
the 2 disagrees says this.
"yes I want a gimped game on either of my systems for namco wanting this game to sell"
Edit: except the series isn't good anymore then set up this storyline in soul blade and then pretty much ignored it.
Well, that seems a really minor thing to me: So, there is one character on another system that I can't play? Like, whatever. I reckon I'll be happy with the many I can play, and the awesome game, rather than bemoan a single character I can't access. That certainly isn't the sort of thing that would stop me buying a game.
And I'm sure the loss of your one sale when compared to the many sales the Star Wars stunt will draw concerns Namco very little.
But, each to their own, I suppose.
wonder how well they are going to implement them in the story line??? cant wait.
Okay, I definately wasn't interested in SC as I'm just not as big of a fan of fighters anymore (arcade>console versions to me... guess I could get a joystick but don't play them so not worth it). However, I think I will at least give it a rent now seeing as I'll be playing as Yoda (yes... Vader is cool but if they make Yoda fight like in episode 1-3 he could steal the show for alot of people--his style fits in perfectly for SC actually which is kinda strange if you think about it).
Who knows, maybe SC will get me back into one of my past favorite genres (way back... think 2d besides arcade versions).
am i the only one that see's this as a gimmick?
You're not alone, but i gotta say it's working!
ya right? all of a sudden everyone is all interesting in the game because of Vader and Yoda. eh, oh well. i dont plan on buying it either way.
can't wait for this game.
lol they tried to pull a quick one with Darth Vader
Im just glad the game is finally going online so I can kick some major azz over live! The whole yoda Vador idea sounds pretty cool and I wish they would make a complete next gen star wars only fighter! Speaking of fighters though I just really wish midway or someone would make a horror fighter game where you could play as freddy, jason, Michael Myers or who ever and just go at it!
hmmm and i was gonna go buy VF5 too. I guess i can wait until summer for a fighter.
Look at the very least it's got people talking about this game (more so now).
Alot of people didn't even have this game on their radar, but with this news, atleast have it in their radar, as possible buy/rental, etc.
Forget Yoda and his ex Vader, PS3 version gets bigger boobs. SC4 FTW!!!
which is why i kept the best version-dreamcast.but it's cool that both systems get an exclusive character.i won't knock the 360 version.
more companies should have done these crossovers.
i always wanted all the big shenmue characters in VF5 so that ryo could fight lan di.put chai,ren,master chen,terry,all of them as downloadables.but sega f#cked up again.
same with soul calibur.always wanted ninja scoll characters and guts and griffith from BERSERK.
oh well.at least it's a start.somehow i think tekken is crossing over to 360 and one system gets jet li.and the other,chuck norris or bruce lee.
i'll be getting this game regardless.
mag lev.......want to play something crazy?play multiplayer URBAN REIGN ps2(tekken and soul calibur team members)..............
I wonder if this will be the last of the news on the fighters. Remember Soul Calibur II had Link On Gamecube, SPawn on Xbox, and Tekken fighter for PS2.
Maybe they could do the same thing here for PS3/360... but like Master Chief for 360, and Snake (From MGS) for PS3.
I want Yoda instead of Vader :(
HOLY CRAP this is going to be awesome!!! FOR ME soul calibur has been my favorite fighter and now that they have included Vader, this game is going to kick ass big time!!!
They know how to push my buttons that lead to my wallet. What a tease though now we have to wait till summer. At least The force Unleashed will be coming soon.
That was unexpected
Its an interesting idea to have yoda in the 360 version and vader in the ps3 one but surely a big draw of this game wold of been to have them fighting each other?
Actually give it a few months an they will be on DLC..
I swore i wouldn't buy any more multi platform games for 360, but i may end up purchasing both versions of this game.
fuuuck yeah dude, that was bad ass.
How did they get the licsense to do this? I know people love cross overs but this one doesn't make any god damn sense. If Namco is going to do off the wall stuff like this then they might as well add Kratos and Nariko.
I LOVE IT!
the Star Wars geek in me is cracking up at the ludicrousness of Vader and Yoda joining the tournament.
man, Soul Calibur wasn't really on my must have list for this year, but damn, i think i'm gonna have to pick this up for my PS3, just to smite fools with Lord Vader.
whenwhenwhenwhenwhenwhenwhen!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
Oh God... if it is real then it's even more pathetic than SC 2 and 3... :/
cause that would mean cross console play!!!!
Soul Calibur has always been my favourite fighter. I have never been a fan of Tekken. I have always felt that there was too much of a hesitation between the pushing of a button and the reaction of the character in Tekken. The response is much quicker in Soul Calibur. Can't wait to check out Vader in this version!
I would rather have Anakin in the black sith hooded cloak, I think that would be way cooler =D. (I am probably gonna have a hell load of disagrees.)
they should add ratchet(ps3) banjo kazoo(360) so they could get kid audience, and they should also put chief(360) snake (ps3) to take hardcore gamers and 50 cent (ps3) lil wayne (360) to get hip hop gamers like me.
