Is there info about their T6 tournament rules? Usual double elimination or NB prefer something another?
DUDE aaaaarrrrrggghhhhhhh i am tired that all the good stuff is heppening in L.A, I REMEMBER ONE TIME ONE WISE ANCHOER MEN ONCE SAID SANDIEGO YOU CAN GO F@#K YOURSELF
Is THIS the big update?
markman they gonna have tekken 6 running on ps3/xbox with the full roster of characters? and y the poster featuring paul? i cant see a demo with kazuya and paul only playable, i thought maybe if its a demo to be released maybe new characters will be playabe as usually. Of course about demo is just rumours but im just sayin :)
I wish I could be there. :(
sweet a tourny for a game i have yet to play in a city i’ll never make it to!!!….release the game
fuck the tournament.
Release the GAME
I hope they realse this demo in ps3 store this week
I know what the big surprise is. Cross console online play between the PS3 and 360! :D
cross platform gaming would be sweet! since I play stick I’m not even in a disadvantage against PS players…
i didnt see tekken 6 in E3 ????/
OMFG they still saying fall 2010 F**k u NAMCO
I think you mean Fall 09. It’s only 5 more months away. Go practice juggle spamming in T5DR to pass the time, like me.
I AM 100% SURE THEY ARE CAPABLE OF RELEASING THE DEMO, AND IT WOULD WISE TO RELEASE THE DEMO CUZ PEOPLE THAT HAVE NEVER PLAYED THE GAME WILL BE EXPOSE TO THIS GAME, AND I AM SURE MANY OF THEM GONNA BUY THE GAME WHEN IT COMES OUT, SO IT WOULD BE BENEFITIAL FOR NAMCO IF THEY RELEASE THE DEMO
I would just like at least a release month to be announced at E3.
DAMN IT DAMN IT DAMN IT DAMN IT!!! F@[K!!!
hold up is this arcade or ps3/360?
MarkMan, the news aren’t exactly mind-blowing, tbh.
Was it meant to be mind blowing? I’m just trying to share info. lol.
tbh, I think I know it’s not mind blowing, but thanks for telling me.
well i am sure tekken force news is huge but we are all just wondering about the exact release date and if they are going to release the demo
Why would they release a demo so early? It’s not even summer yet.
i think they should reaslse the game in summer because in fall many crazy games are comming out and thats not good for namco to make money
LULZ SO WHAT IF THEY RELESE THE DEMO ARE U AGINST IT???
No. With No official release date why would you think they would release a demo this early. And if it’s anything like SC4 it wouldn’t be released until after the retail version is out. I mean it’s common sense.
Man I can’t wait for the new PSP Go, my PlayStation Portable 1st gen really needs a replacer.
SF is the most good series to ever happen to fighting arcade gamesno doubt, without it I know the genre might disappear…Not that I dont like other games, I just think SF is most loved the community the most.
