Tekken 6's main man Katsuhiro Harada answers GamePro's questions about the upcoming Tekken 6 that will hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this fall. 'Grrreat!'
If he's still making lame excuses as to why T6 went multiplatform. They can make Tekken Tag on a brand new console(PS2) with a very small install base, but they can't have it exclusive to PS3 because too many 360 owners said they wanted to play Tekken? LOL, no one believes that crap.
And the more time that passes the less interested I become in the game.
This game is still slated to be released ??? totally fell off my radar , I really dont care about this going Multi-Plat anymore , I haven't been impressed any ways with what they have shown so far , just gives us a release date already...enough with trying to defend why they went to the 360 ... plz we all know M$ had something to do with this no matter what they wanna say... This game like most once PS exclusives will sell better on the PS3
Do you really think devs care about how a vocal minority here at n4g feels? The dev has a right to do whats in the best interest of his studio, just look at the latest SF4 sales and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out IF sony doesn't pay to make it exclusive theres simply too much money left on the table by NOT going multiplat....normal gamers outside of n4g just buy the games they like on their platform of choice regardless of exclusitivity so 99% of the ps3 fans interested in Tekken before they knew is was going multiplat will still buy it when its released, and NOW they can add 360 only owners who were also interesting in playing Tekken6 but were definitely not going to buy a ps3 anytime soon.= Win, Win for gamers and Tekken6. JOY
I freakin love me some Tekken, but now, because they have to port the game to the 360, I have to wait for Tekken 6. I just doesn't seems right. If the game is done, release it. How many games got released on the 360 first then released on the PS3 later? How come they can do that with the 360 but they can;t do it with the PS3?
M$ big fat cheques that's why, money talks.
why do other people have to to be mad when a third party title goes multiplatform?
Who exactly is mad? I'm just pointing out holes in their logic. I will concede when they come up with a legit reason, but until then it's just funny nonsense.
It's not the multiplatform thing that bothers me anymore. Like I said a while ago, I no longer care about games going multiplatform because I now understand that developers have to make money especially in a time like this. It's the delay on the PS3 version that annoys people.
Tekken 6 will surely be great, it deserves to be played by a lot of people. I don't see anything wrong with it coming to the Xbox 360.
coming to the 360. It's the fact that the PS3 version is going to be delayed is what annoyed a lot of PS3 fans.
Exclusive games are what set gaming consoles apart. I support exclusivity.
i realy lost interested in this game since its giong to xbox 360 low quilty tekken no thanks
I don't care if it when multi but why delay it for PS3? That's what bothers me.
any established tekken player will be getting it for the ps3 just cause they've played it on there over the years and they're used to the controller and the only way you can get any competition without going out to the arcade daily is if you're playing dark resurrection online on the psn. so i'd say get it on whichever one ur friends are getting it on or if you're looking for some serious competition with top players see you on the ps3 version with Ziggyfeild. other than that, not a thoroughly informative interview but a decent one none the less.
On the PS3. It will be unplayable on the 360 like SF4 is unplayable on the 360. Dont kid yourselves people. Fighting games and the 360 dont go hand in hand.
I lost interest in this game now. It's not the multiplatform that annoys me, it's delaying one version to favor the other.
I can't f*ckin wait for this game. It's been too long since I've grappled with my boy King
tekken 6 is better than sf4 but STF4 have more fans, i donno why is that
They most likely didn't delay it because of the 360 version. It was mostly likely the arcade version of BR that delayed it. Why make a whole new version of game and then put it on console not long after the arcade release? They will only lose money. If BR went straight to console, that would be a different story but it went to the arcades first.
Wrong, it's delayed because it was built on PS3 hardware and is now having to be completely rebuilt on 360 hardware. I remember reading a long time ago, back in early 2007 I think that the home version would get new characters.
Here's the link: http://ps3.ign.com/articles... That's the main reason a lot of PS3 fans are angry.
i read nothing about it being delayed because of 360 version. it being delayed because of arcade version is more plausible. why would they want the arcade owners to lose more money, again? they did it to tekken 5 and i'm sure they wouldn't want to do it again.
Exactly, this was delayed because of BLOODLINE REBELLION, not the 360 port. But don't bother telling fanboys that.
I'm importing this day one, on the rightfully console I.E the PS3!
On a side-note, I've done this for every lost PS3 exclusive.
Montreafart you right about 360 and fighting games they don't go hand in hand specially Tekken series, 360 going to mess this game up.
maybe more features and things added into the ps3 version who knows
You would think that with the game in development this long, it would look like the original trailer of Jin. I'm really disappointed by the graphics and recycled animations. It couldn't hurt to use rag doll physics in a fighting game? Heck, use the dang Havok engine for some physics! In this day and age with Fight Night 4 looking good in in-game pics, why can't we see more detail?
Tekken for the 360 is the biggest mistake by Namco.
I wonder if this game will beat SF4 in sells? Interesting. Man even the fans of this game no longer care. Did they move on grow up? Do people not like the art any more? Not bad publicity and no good publicity just nothing, every one just up and left WOW. This game went from being the reason to get a PS3 to no one caring. I'm not sure if the fanboys see this but this is whats going to kill your system. Hype- If you notice people got tired of waiting on this game. People get tired of fads too and move on. Fads operate off of hype or hope from the fans. Things are made to be what they are not. The graphic amazement from this game have ran it's course. That gimmick is now gone. I don't think the art team can do what even the UT3 guys can do right now. Another thing the game looks more like the king of fighting in 3d than Tekken. I'm sure if you love this game but in the current climate of fanboys it won't even last too long. The HD fanboys need beauty queens to win these flame fights. Since this game is not that it will be forgotten before it is released. Then it does help any that FPS are flooding the market... fighters are almost done for it seems. No one even talks about them any more online. It's really crazy how all the skill based games are going away except for online player vs player games with no real story. The funny thing is this started way before the Wii... where are the new younger hardcore gamers what are they playing?
Erm what are you talking about? Did you write yourself that long message to convince yourself that nobody cares about this game and that it's going to flop? Show me one flop Tekken game. Oh that's right---you can't, because no Tekken game has ever flopped. As for beating SF4 in sales, of course it will---Tekken has always beat SF in sales, and the PS360 userbase will be larger when it's released, to boot. I really have no idea where any of your baseless statements came from.
