If Marvel VS. Capcom 3 was an arcade game, it would look something like this

September 16, 2010

We’ve been having a lively discussion about Capcom and their attitude towards the arcade market in the SSFIV Price Tag comment thread and surely this will continue to stir the debate. Capcom has already stated that there are no plans for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 in arcades, which is something we heard about early on about SSFIV as well. Now we have this video from Japanese news site Gigazine that shows a very arcade-like setup for MVC3 at what I assume is the Tokyo Game Show. We still can’t get our hopes up yet – if it were a real arcade release we would expect to see it in a VEWLIX cabinet and I haven’t seen any “MVC3 coming to Arcades” announcements yet . As such this looks like an ‘arcadified’ kiosk, similar to what we saw recently at PAX in the US so all we can do is dream (or I’m sure people will be planning their own MVC3 home-made arcade cabinets). Once again, this is where the Game Gate VU can come in handy, as that has a modular control panel where you can add arcade sticks to itassuming that MVC3 will be a part of the iGames license which includes Capcom games.

Speaking of TGS, there is some arcade love there at Konami’s booth, who brought Love Plus Arcade to the show and unveiled another arcade title that appears to be a variation on Love Plus called “Happy Daily Life”. More details on that @ 4Gamer.net

Tis the season for game shows in Japan and while the Tokyo Game Show does not focus primarily upon arcades like JAMMA did, we still get the chance to see some of the journalists who flock to TGS check out some of the great Japanese arcades in Akihabara. One guy from G4TV made a stop at the Taito Station there and captured some video of Half-Life 2 Arcade, Taiko Drum Master,  Beatmania IIDX 16 Empress and even Konami’s DrumMania V6 Blazing and GuitarFreaks V6 Blazing. Unfortuantely I can’t embed the videos on the site here so follow the link below to witness some arcade goodness from Taito Station.

Early/rough SFIV arcade to console comparison

October 10, 2008

At the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom is proudly demonstrating the latest betas of SFIV on the PS3 and Xbox 360 – which has led to questions about what differences there will be between the versions. Comments have been raised about the backgrounds and frame rate yet again – with the arcade version coming out on top. Of course the console versions are still in a beta state so it remains to be seen what will happen there and at this point it still isn’t clear how well the vs. online support will stack up on the console versions. Also provided to us by The Stinger Report are screenshots of each version so far. Naturally one can’t see the frame rate difference but it’s still a decent guideline to go off of for now:

Arcade:

Xbox 360

PS3
