Damn...I want to play online, but can't decide..I recently started playing KOF online on PSN, but now that KOF and Samurai Shodown is coming for Xbox360 and PS3..might buy both actually, so I can challenge anybody anytime. Still wish that the PS3 users could somehow miraculously challenge Xbox360 users in the future, but I doubt it'll ever happen. Wishful thinking for me.

Did they forget about the soon to be released Metal Slug 7, or is it delayed, or what's going on here?

But anyways, SNK gets my monies, yea!

I hope both games do well but wouldn't it be a far better idea to put these games up for download - at least on PS3?

... Why? I'm pretty sure SF4 is not going to be a download-able game, either.

May 2009 sounds awesome, but I'll believe it when I see the game sitting on store shelves. This is SNK we are talking about :(

I wish Soul Calibur had the fatalities and blood (that's a TRUE Critical Finish, lol). The gameplay itself doesn't look so hot, but that shit is boss.

Good stuff. SEN/Edge of Destiny can fall down a well and die, for all I care, but KOFXII is what is basically going to vindicate my PS3 purchase next year, right there. :D

I think it's poop myself. I do like the new characters though.
The gameplay immediately made me think Tekken. What with all the launcher, jab, jab, jab, jab, jab... well you get the point.

I still think it looks great, I was hoping that it would be more of a SFIV redux, but hey, I still want to try it out.
