To have the PS2 button layout, I'm not used to the Dreamcast version.

Yi-Long3485d ago

... for a game you can just download and play with MAME.

If it were a HD-remix, it would still be quite pricey but it would be 'OK', but for pretty much a straight port of a 10 year old game, it seems a bit expensive.

Awesome awesome game though. Loved it on my Dreamcast.

Defectiv3_Detectiv33484d ago

This game is very rare, the dreamcast version is still worth face value

riksweeney3484d ago

MAME does not support Naomi hardware fully yet.

menoyou3484d ago

Yep, way overpriced. If it were an HD Remix then it would be worth the price. I'm not buying it. If they have a half-price sale, maybe I'll get it.

Bnet3433484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

Considering this game is like $100 on eBay, no, no it's not overpriced.

@ El Colombiano

Alright, it's overpriced FOR YOU. Easy thing, don't buy it. That's what I do when I think a game is overpriced. If this didn't have online, I would of passed on it, but it does, so I'm sold. The "hard copy" thing doesn't phase me one bit because I would never give $100 for a used game that's about five years old and does not have online play.

El_Colombiano3484d ago

Considering those are hard copies, yes this is overpriced.

If the demo is anything to go by, then $15 is a bit too much. Make it $10 and I might consider it.

-MD-3485d ago (Edited 3485d ago )

Agreed 15 is too much I'll only pay 10.

Edit: They need to stop with these 15$ games 6-10$ should be the norm for arcade games with actual remakes/updated graphics costing 10-15$.

Seraphim3484d ago

I think $15 is too much. At least for me. Yes if you consider the fact this is a $60-100 PS2 game it's also well worth the price.

But at the same time, they did announce this on the Playstation Blog (comments sections I believe), after some thought though it makes sense that it's $15. The extra $5 is probably due to licensing fees for Marvel.

kingOVsticks3485d ago

but dammnit MVSC 2 is so much damn fun and it does come with super street fighter 2...

Giant_Chibi3484d ago

it doesn't come with super street fighter 2, you've misread that. It comes with super street fighter 2 hd remix's "quarter match mode." It's a mode from ssf2hdr, not the actual game itself.
