"Console Exclusive Content" Announced For Tekken 6
There was a time, way back in the day, when many video games hit the arcade first and only entered the home on a later date (and the arcade versions were vastly superior). Well, it's unlikely that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Tekken 6 will be inferior to the arcade version...especially if they have exclusive content.
According to Siliconera, the game's Executive Producer, Katsuhiro Harada, announced that the console iteration of this hotly anticipated fighter would indeed have "console-specific content." Now, the PSP version will get new levels and a few new character customization options, but what might PS3 and 360 owners receive? They wouldn't provide us with any details, but we're hoping the news breaks at some point in the next few months; perhaps at E3. Therefore, we can only guess and speculate: what do you want to see? If you've played it in the arcades, is there something new you'd like to have in the console version? New characters are always nice, but some die-hard fans might appreciate a new mode even more... Then there are the seemingly infinite multiplayer possibilities and character enhancement options; we're only tossing out a few suggestions, and we assume the fans have more. Namco Bandai does listen to their fans, so perhaps the console-exclusive content is something gamers have already asked for...? Well, either way, this release is gonna be huge.
We'll let you know as soon as the information arrives. It may be interesting if they decide to go the Soul Calibur IV route; i.e., give PS3 owners one thing and 360 owners another...
