We have Street Fighter 2, UMK3 and Soul Calibur on the 360

Tekken and Mortal Kombat 2 on the PSN

Street Fighter NC and Samurai Shodown for the Wii

All we need is Marvel VS Capcom 2, BUT ONLY if its online.

UMK3 is on the 360 also.speedsix

I was going to add that to the list, but i've always like MK2 better

Is this KOF '98 Ultimate Match? If so, I'd bite. :D
#5 Posted by speedsix (1076 posts) -
Sure is.

Great, I'll get this when it comes out. :D

Damn you Sony, pay more devs to bring more great games on PSN :x

I'll probably download this. I need to get into KoF since I'll probably buy KoFXII. My 360 is a fighting machine only these days.

Was that game even good? not to familiar with KOF series, also I want Street Fighter III on XBLA, as well as Marvel VS Capcom, X-Men VS Street Fighter would also be nice :)

Imagining all that = omg. So good.

Just the 360 controller sucks for fighters, only problem for me. :/

OMG great news i love that game

i remember playing it in the arcade back in the day :D

I don't mind it for 2D fighters. I can't do a dragon punch motion on any D-Pad ever made. If it wasn't for the analog stick on the dreamcast, I probably never would have been able to get good (and get into) at 2D fighters.

Personally... I kinda think its worthless to do all these titles if they won't have xbox live support. Alot of them are old games. I downloaded Guilty Gear XX and I love it but there is nobody online to play it. Playing the cpu gets old fast and i'm 25 so I don't have friends coming over to my house everyday after school.

It would be heartbreaking to see MvC2 on XBLA but with no online play.

Pointless unless it has online play tbh since KoF 98' Ultimate Match is coming out soon.

One of the best in the series. It has a huge learning curve though.

KOF '98 UM is getting a standalone PS2 release, so don't worry, unless you have a non-BC PS3...

KOF 98 is on Jpn PSN store...

I hope the US gets it. I really don't want to have to download another fighting game to my 360.

This is cool, but I'm done buying 2D games on my 360, it always ends the same way, sadly. Why can't M$ make a new controller with a Better Dpad?

Still, this is cool.

Just create a JP PSN account and buy one of those JP psn cards at Ebay.

Yeah, but this appears to be Ultimate Match, the remixed version that was just released in Japanese arcades and PS2's. Just hope that the PS2 version hits NA, or else Sony's anti-2D policy strikes again.

That's nice, but would have prefered Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves, that games needs to be available on more systems other than the Dreamcast.

I might consider getting this if there is an online feature in it.

I want both games Capcom vs SNK 2 for PSN and XBLA. I also want a Capcom vs SNK 3 for PS3 and 360.

another not-on-PS3 game is always welcome
#31 Posted by TheArcade (1539 posts) -

The D-Pad for the 360 is fine with me. It's easy to learn I dunno why people act like it's so horrible. Even my PS2 friend plays fighters on the 360 and not a single complaint about the D-pad. Now the D-pad on the old Xbox on the other hand... that was brutal.

In anycase I'm glad KOF '98 is finding another home on the Xbox 360.

You sure are right. I never buy a fighter fro 360 and the crap d-pad. No im not buying a arcade stick. I shouldint have to.

#39 Posted by Grive (2971 posts) -

These are great news.

SNK-Playmore, please, put all them titles on XBL. Heck, would it be possible to release an "official" emulator for 360, price it 800 points with a game included, and then just put up roms there for, say, 400-600? I'd bite. A lot of times. I have a credit card, the limit is decently high.

Pretty please? Pretty, pretty please with sugar on top?

Waiting for KoF2002, thanks to my irrational love for that game and it's weird blonde pirate mexican wrassler.
