Namco is fine by me, and this won't hurt me, either. I will never succoumb to the dark side that is Sony...ever again. For awhile there, I heard rumors onother forums that sc3 was to be a cube exclusive, but this settles that...

btw, I enjoyed SC2,,,,for the cube at least. That was my fav, playing as Link in that game was great. And I still play Pac-Man vs. for the cube, which is a blast, much to the strong critizism it got...

In other news, fear grips Connecticut in the wake of a sadistic ritual killing involving a lubed baseball bat with nails driven through the end. Police describe the suspect as a pale, pasty white 20-something with dark hair and twiggy arms, possibly native to the upper New York region.

Yeah, wtf, Namco.

XBox = massive saving capabilities, huge media storage space, internet, newest of the three, huge IUB.
PS2 = fucking falls apart if you give it a mean look, weak internet, massive IUB
Gamecube = Solid as a rock, no internet, 1.5GB media, middle kid.

So I guess they'll sell a bunch of copies, but why not release it on XB? It's not like nobody would buy it.

why do people even expect Xbox versions of games from Japanese manufacturers when about 8 people* in Japan who dont work for MS own one?


*actual figures are 12 people


tbh im more annoyed Namco Vs Capcom RPG is PS2 only, SC3 isn't going to be very different from SC2 anyway

part 2 sold more on the gamecube than it did on either the ps2 or xbox, that might be due to link being in the game :)

I'm very excited about the prospect of creating your own fighter. If that was the only difference between 2 & 3, and it gets even mildly positive reviews, I'd consider picking it up based on that alone.

*Looks at his Gamecube to make sure*

Yep, Ethernet adapter's still there. Nobody except Sega is using it, but that doesn't mean it's not there.

I dunno...I personally thought the xbox ver was better, the S controller is better for fighting games than the GC one is.
Was cool having link in there though.

The GC port was better regardless of controllers.

Anyway if it bothers people that much you could just buy a specialist controller or stick to get the most out of the game. The GC pad is a very general design. It has to be, Like most standard controllers. Obviously its not gonna be as good with a certain genre of games. its impossible to make a pad that works perfectly with every single game.

Falls apart? I have had my system since launch and it has survived

Dust, lots of dust.

Droped no less than 5 times onto concrete because I am clumsy.

More hours than I want to count of paly time

A cat peeing on it.

Dropped down stairs (again I am fairly clumsy)

and tripped over, and stepped on because I keep my systems on the floor.

Now tell me, do you think the X Box, and Game Cube could honestly withstand that?

The PS2 is the 80s volvo of consoles. It may not be pretty but it can drive though a freaking wall.
