During his keynote at the 2008 Tokyo Game Show, Microsoft's John Schappert announced that beloved fighting franchise Tekken would be making the leap to the Xbox 360 in 2009 with Tekken 6. The Xbox 360 version will feature the Bloodline Rebellion update that recently went live in Japanese arcades, which introduces two new characters, Alisa Boskonovich and Lars Alexanderson. This marks the first time the series has appeared outside of a Sony, and while it isn't an exclusive, Tekken 6 with Xbox Live multiplayer is a major boon for 360 owners around the world. Look for it next fall.
man this isnt bad news.. but yeah.. im glad sony finally realized that having exclusives in the way of first party games is most important.
we can thank that for interesting games like little big planet, afrika, and MAG. sega and nintendo realized this from the get go... the whole reason i was such a die hard sega fanboy was because of their first party games... them being underdogs always forced them to work the hardest on their own consoles.. and we can thank that for so many amazing games.. now that the pressure is off with them as a 3rd party, theyre putting out rubbish.
im actually fine with the death of the exclusive, and this does make a one console future seem closer to reality.
one thing id like 3rd parties to do is have a team of 50 guys working on a game.. 30 are making the standard game.. while 10 are working on things exclusive to the 360 version, and 10 others are working on things exclusive to the ps3 version. konami did awesome stuff like that in the genesis/snes generation. castlevania bloodlines AND super castlevania IV were awesome games.. doing this would only mean more money in my eyes, because then ppl with both systems that could afford to do so would purchase both copies of the game.
