Why TATSUNOKO VS. CAPCOM needs to be on the PS3/360 instead of the Wii.


Here's another reason. More fighting game fans own a PS3/360 than the Wii. Yeah, I went there with that generalization. But it's true. The home addresses of Street Fighter, Virtua Fighter, King of Fighters, BlazBlue, Dead or Alive and Tekken are on the PS3 and 360. The thriving fighting game communities are already there waiting. Why have it on a system whose only mentionable "fighting" game is Super Smash Bros. Brawl? Ummm, I don't get it. The fighting genre is already niche, why make it even more difficult to garner an audience? Go where people will actually play and enjoy the game with one another. Plus who's going to buy another arcade stick just for one game on their Wii? Not me that's for sure.

And finally the most important reason why Tatsunoko vs. Capcom needs to be on the PS3/360 instead of the Wii is the most blatant and simple of all: online. I know that Capcom is "looking into" applying online to this game for the Wii but I'm just going to put the cart before the horse, put on my prophetic hat and decree that it wont have it. Which begs the question why would you buy a fighting game without online play? It could be the greatest game ever but if I'm stuck just playing local whats the point? It's not like I'm going to have daily tournaments at my house for the masses in my neighborhood. Are you? Do you have such an abundance of real life friends that can drop by your crib to play with you whenever you felt like playing that online functionality in the game wont be an issue with you? If so, that must be nice.

Or it may come to pass that they do have some gimped version of online with no chat, retarded friend code implementation and lag that would sap the enjoyment of the game. Seriously if either of those scenarios come to pass ( which I'm almost positive that it will ), I wont buy it and will urge others to do the same. Why support a flawed business decision on Capcom's part?

Lookit Capcom, just port that over to the PS3/360 and all will be good. We'll even add it to our FNF rotation and sing its praises, otherwise I fear you alienating the very fans this game is meant to be for... real fighting game enthusiasts who want to tussle with the superior online offerings of the PS3/360 with other like minded individuals.

For those who are weird and may actually want to read more of my stuff here are things off the blog I do. Occasionally I wrote for Flixist, a rad movie site where, get this, we talked about and reviewed movies. I have long since stopped writing there ( and here ) as I feel like I've said all I have had cooped up in my head without sounding redundant.
