This is my first post on this forum so please be gentle with me…
I live in London, UK and I first started playing fighting games when I stumbled upon Street Fighter 4 cabinets in an arcade in the city centre. I knew a little about Street Fighter already from buying videogame mags when I was a younger, but never really gave it much attention because it was had 2D sprite-based graphics cause, to me (being born in the mid 90s), it looked crazy dated.
But anyways I was drawn in by SSF4 because I’d never seen Street Fighter in 3D an.d it looked pretty good so I had a go and eventually started trying to get good.
Fast forward a year and a bit and that arcade shut down which leads me to a problem. I already have a PS3 and could play online, but I know for sure that the in-person aspect of the arcade was one of the most important things that made me drawn to SF. Also I’ve heard all about the lack of competition, input lag etc on PSN but I really dont have the money for an Xbox.
So should I play on PSN but not really improve OR try and give up on playing until I have enough for an Xbox and some people to play with offline?
Thanks and sorry for the lifestory…
