Not up for Australia, Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands and Switzerland at the moment. Maybe more regions. Hope this gets resolved soon.

Skimming DL and twitter, the netcode is a worry. I've been thinking of getting this but only somewhere down the line as my plate is full of fighters to learn already.

I wanted this even as just AC+ so I could play online on PS3 with my arcade stick. I don't mean to be elitest or anything, but after spending a long time on the stick, it's hard to go back to a controller and without a PS2 arcade stick, I can't really play AC+ with one.

It was bad on 360 at launch and was quickly patched.

I'll download the game as soon as I get home and see for myself, Arcsys always did a good job with online.

Since when is P4A netcode bad? :S
There were major netcode issues on the 360 version when it initially came out in Japan. Arc patched it right around when the U.S. version came out, IIRC.

BlazBlue CS on 360 also originally had some netcode issues...and they patched it when the U.S. version came out. Seems typical for them.

Anybody in a weird funky small japanese poster for this game?

Came with an arcade stick I got for the game. It is really ugly but made of clear translight (like the signage at a fast-food restaurant).
ok

Psyched to (re)buy this game.

EDIT Just reread OP, changed my question:

Have they said if the PSN/XBLA versions will get the AC+R balance update at some point?

So, quick question:

Does this include the balance changes from AC+R, which just came out in Japanese arcades? I'm confused because this is just labeled as AC+ but it seems really weird to me to release an older version when a new update just came out.
Not included. Rumor is they'll patch it in for free at some unknown date, but as far as I know that's not confirmed. Pretty awkward releasing it this way, but at this point I'll take any Guilty Gear over none.

Sitting in australia. Massive guilty gear fan. Didn't even read the thread, went straight to download.



Sorry,

This offer is not valid in your region.


Fuck off. Fuck off Arcsys. Fuck off region locking. First P4A now this shit. I'm hoping this is some kind of technical difficulties shit because this is ridiculous. What a load of horseshit.

So basically never, then.

Fuck you too Arc.

Why not worlwide ? 99% of the games are released worlwide on xbla and it's not like this one is targeted at one country or has licensing problems.
It appears this year someone shoved a stick up arc's ass and now all their games are ridiculously region locked. I don't even get the technicalities that could be stopping them.

Wait a fucking minute...a downloadable title that is region-locked?! If this doesn't make its way to the Canadian PSN I'm flipping a goddammn table.

It's that it didn't release everywhere like usual. No one knows if it's coming at a later date ( since it's rare for xbla games to not release worldwide at the same time) or even if it's coming at all to the other countries. Will have to wait until next week to see the situation with the PSN release.


Yeah, it sucks.

Anyone know the reasoning behind the week or so delay between XBLA and PSN release?

I'm a bit miffed as I was going to buy this as part of my spend $100 in October to get $20 back... and it's currently slated to be released a day after the offer ends (instead of on the 24th)... ugh.

But it was T just 3 years ago.
And it's still T on PSP Favorites (which was released a couple months ago).
