it should have been Tifa.

or have Tifa as a dlc character.

solideagle103d ago

she has loads of moves from Heihachi Mishima" so story wise it wouldn't make sense to have Tifa doing these :)

Obscure_Observer103d ago

Given some of her moves, she might be Heihachi Mishima´s granddaughter!

Love her style and character design! Another great addition!

Eonjay103d ago

Wouldn't that make her Jin's sister? Unless Heihachi has more kids we don't know about.

generic-user-name103d ago

She's Heihachi's daughter. Half sister to Kazuya and Lars, aunt to Jin.

Eonjay103d ago

Okay got it and Jun's sister in law.

H9103d ago

Her gameplay and threatening aura look great, interested to see what she is to heihachi, however the design is awfully average, and what's up with Tekken and Sports hoodies, everyone has these

Kurisu103d ago

Yes, her gameplay does look great indeed! Definitely looking forward to trying her out.

I had a great time with Phase 1 of the Tekken 8 Closed Network Test, but unfortunately phase 2 fell on my weekend to work and I only got about an hour in.

CrimsonWing69103d ago

Man, I expected more for her design seeing who created her. I wish this series wouldn’t be afraid to take risks with designs like Street Fighter does. I mean, cool jacket… I guess 🤷‍♂️

"The report adds that, at 39 months since its launch, the PlayStation 5's lifetime sales are currently 7% ahead of the PlayStation 4 during that same period. Sony's home console is also 68% ahead of the PlayStation 3's life-to-date sales."

Nice!

Console industry is stagnant right?

Christopher1d 7h ago (Edited 1d 7h ago )

I think that's respective of market reach for consoles as a whole, not spending/revenue? Let alone that stat was accounting for PS and Nintendo filling in the losses by Xbox.

Bathyj1d 7h ago

Yeah, the point I was making. Total number of consoles not really growing with one side severely underperforming, hence cries of stagnation.

Plus, a business doesn't need to grow every year to succeed. It needs to make profit. I don't care what Microsoft says. They don't make profit. You can't spend 80 billion and then not include that as an expense against your revenue. Not how business works.

You need to deduct your expenses from your revenue to work out your profit. I've understood that since Lemonade on Commodore 64.

Any reason why TLoU2 suddenly rose to #9 in the chart?

MrNinosan1d 3h ago

Because the Remaster released 19th of January

badz14923h ago

oh...yea...totally forgot about that. but why doesn't it says Remaster in the chart?

MrNinosan20h ago

@badz149
Because buying the PS4-version, and then do the $10 upgrade is cheaper.
So my guess is that it's the actual PS4-Version that has skyrocket to #9

badz14918h ago

that makes total sense. haha tq

purple10118h ago(Edited 18h ago)

Also ps5 is on sale in the uk for £419
for the kids half term break I expect and people need games with their console some will have seen the hbo series this may have helped

Tekken 8 Pluggers: Devs Will Have Several Tiers of Penalties, Already have a Ban List

The Tekken dev team has confirmed that Tekken 8 pluggers will be getting punishments, with some even getting banned from the game.

XiNatsuDragnel4d ago

Wow great we need this 😍 more other devs take notes

Rynxie3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Quitting is not cheating. Banning people for rage quitting or plugging is beyond ridiculous. Yeah, let's ban people just quitting, let's ignore the people cheating though. I hope people sue namco, if they go with that ridiculous implementation. It absolutely hurts no one. Cheating on the other hand.

Terry_B4d ago

Why are they not called ragequitters anymore?

Angyobangyo3d ago

In theory they are ragequitters, but instead they are just quitting or closing the game from the main menu without disconnecting online. Pluggers are online ragequitters who either literally remove their cable from their router or Ethernet cable from console for make the connection crash.

Furesis3d ago

I have not encountered a single ragequitter. Banning sounds a bit excessive for just quiting, instead they should do what MK does with their quitalitys and just give u the win but tekken gives u nothing and that sounds more like a game issue to me. Just give people the win that would be a start lol and a small time penalty like OTHER games do. Like it's all out there just copy that shit, this is an instance where copying others is a GOOD thing. It's like no one at namco has never played a popular online game before.

Terry_B2d ago

oh trust me..the ragequitters are common in Tekken 8. Around 30-40 from my ranked matches ended because them. From around 900 matches so far.
