Sony's really serious about getting exclusive fighters on PS4

Inzo1129d ago

Just a pity it isnt Tekken.

Aloy-Boyfriend1129d ago

It's the genre Sony has always lacked. Good they are taking fighting games more serious.

Baka-akaB1129d ago (Edited 1129d ago )

Uh ? Not a complain i just dont understand your post . I don't see how it's a genre in wich they were lacking . Ever since the ps1 ... even when other consoles had better ports and versions like the Saturn and DC , they always had everything in the realm of fighting games , everything but obvious consoles exclusives back then like Killer Instinct and Virtua Fighter ...

bouzebbal1129d ago (Edited 1129d ago )

PS got all fighters, including all alpha sf, KOF, ex+, tobal, Tekken, fatal fury, dragon Ball, naruto, ... I think DOA 3 and 4 are the only 2 games PS never got. Even power stone was on PS

This isn't Sony getting serious, This is SNK's Chinese backers choosing exclusivity by choice.

sammarshall1021129d ago

This won't be a lifetime exclusive though

Imortus_san1129d ago

Yup, buying exclusives left and right, particular multiplataform games.

Rimeskeem1129d ago

Haven't most of the "multiplatform" turned exclusive games been playstation exclusives in the past?

Imortus_san1128d ago

@Rimeskeem Street Fighter and King of Fighters were always in all plataforms.

Tito081128d ago (Edited 1128d ago )

SF EX series have always remained PS exclusive, and KOF 2006 a PS2 only fighter, and FYI, the Tekken series have never hit another console until Tekken 6, and what's wrong with buying exclusivity, I'm sure Microsoft and Nintendo have done the same thing, don't you think?.

Imortus_san1127d ago

@Tito08 I dont remember a game beeing multiplatform for that many years and them going exclusive for Microsoft or Nintendo.

Street Fighter Ex Plus Alpha 2 was so freking good, a pity SFEx 3 was crap, thats one game I hope it gets revived.

I really don't like the new artstyle. It looks like really bad 90s CG.

Darkwatchman1129d ago

Bad 90's CG? It's just 3D. Maybe not cutting edge 3D visuals. It looks like ps2 era 3D. I don't know how you got bad 90's CG

ChronoJoe1129d ago

It's not the 3D I have a problem with, it's the material shaders they've chosen to use, seemingly on everything. It gives it a very 'plastic' look, very much akin to early CGI.

zeuanimals1129d ago

I really miss the look of the Neo Geo's fighters.

gangsta_red1129d ago

I looks really bad. I am hoping this is just some trailer and not actual gameplay.

Anyone remember KoF Maximum Impact?

Vanfernal1129d ago

I actually really enjoyed the Maximum Impact games. I wonder if this game will be along those lines.

ZaWarudo1129d ago

A little disappointing that it isn't sprites.

Mikefizzled1129d ago (Edited 1129d ago )

A little? People I follow on Twitter who commented have resented the change.

Why does KOFIV look like a PS2 game? Kidding obviously, but only slightly.
Woolie Madden ‏@WoolieWoolz
I mean, just. Ooof. I can't even feel upset. Just embarrassed for SNK, more than anything. Everyone just saw their balls on stream.

Baka-akaB1129d ago (Edited 1129d ago )

I'm not dissapointed it's not sprites , it was impossible to continue that way on an financial level . i'm more dismayed that they didnt even bother taking cues for all those fighters with a 2d artstyle and 3d models , especially like Guilty Gear Xrd .

I know that gameplay is supposed to be the primary thing , but the good kof also had tons of aesthetical flair , and this doesnt .

It really looks like one of those f2p chinese brawling games

ChronoJoe1129d ago

To be fair it was suggested over a year ago that they would not be using sprites anymore.

Der_Kommandant1129d ago

Why you went 3D??? whyyyyyyy

Baka-akaB1129d ago (Edited 1129d ago )

Of course they were going to go 3d , even Arcsys went 3d . The issue is going with such a bland and mediocre style as opposed to all the other companies
