Street Fighter IV Producer Wants Tekken in PlayStation Home

50°
270w ago - Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono has told Famitsu (via IGN, linked above) that he would like to see Namco's flagship fighter Tekken and PlayStation social network service Home come together.

He stated he'd like to see a Tekken 6 tie-up with Home, suggesting that both the Street Fighter and Tekken communities could form some sort of cross-community tournament. A sort of Fight Club perhaps?

Ono also revealed the possibility of a Street Fighter-themed game space. With Capcom already working on exclusive content for Home, this one is practically a given.

To quote: Ono also discussed some of the possibilities for Home Clubs. He suggested that if Tekken 6 were to have a tie-up with Home, perhaps they could create some form of tournament pitting the Tekken 6 community versus the Street Fighter IV community.

Jokingly, he suggested that the Tekken 6 development staff who were reading the article should give Home compatibility consideration.

271w ago - Courtesy of JoyStiq (linked above) comes some fresh Tekken 6 screens and a video for the PlayStation 3 console. To quote:

Looking for a fight? Well, you won't find one here. You will find a pop'n fresh trailer for Tekken 6, though. Ah, and new high-res screens of the incoming PS3 and Xbox 360 fighter.

It... looks like Tekken all right, although we're still a little underwhelmed by the visuals, especially after months of playing Namco's own Soul Calibur IV. You?

The video and a few of the screenshots are available below, with the rest linked above. Enjoy!




 

Rumor: Tekken 6 to Have Exclusive DLC for PlayStation 3?

200°
271w ago - Word around the net is the the PS3 is going to have exclusive DLC for the upcoming Namco Bandai game, Tekken 6.

XBox 360 currently has been making a big impact in multiplatform games by purchasing exclusive DLC rights for the Microsoft brand. Much love to their fan base.

Games like GTA 4, Fallout 3 are great examples of this, making their games the better purchase over PS3; finally, Sony seems like they want in on these exclusive DLC rights, starting with the Mirrors Edge content with EA and Sony's exclusivity rights and now Sony looking foward to try and have the advantage with Tekken 6.

Tekken 6 has been a long running franchise born on the Sony platform Playstation, so it seem likely this can have some truth to it. Another reason why this might be true is because Tekken 6 will be the first arcade machine to use the notoriously difficult-to-program-for Cell created by Sony that has currently made its home on the PS3.

This isn't too surprising, considering that Namco always based their arcade units on Sony's home console hardware. That's the reason why Tekken arcade to home conversions were generally better than those of Virtua Fighter.

Maybe the truth to this is that Sony allowed Namco to borrow their cell processor with the exception that Namco would...
