I’ve decided to begin buying back-up copies [new] of my ps2 fighters, and I’ve come across an issue. I can find all of them for reasonable prices except CvS2 [PS2]. Amazon.com is selling it for about $140. I could either buy it for that price, or I could wait a few weeks for Capcom to re-distribute CvS2 [Japanese] for $20 on play-asia.com. If I were to get the Japanese version of that, then I might as well get all of my back-up games in Japanese.
My main concern is whether or not to buy CvS2 [US] or [JAP]. Since PS3 isn’t backwards compatible, I’m wondering how I’m going to play the [JAP] games when/if my [US] PS2 breaks down, or when Sony stops production on the PS2. Also, is it a good idea to get a [Jap] PS2 if most of my games are Japanese?
My list consist of:
Capcom Vs SNK 2
Street Fighter Anniversary Collection
King of Fighters XI [US release]
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core [US release; when the bugs are fixed]
Tekken Tag Tournament
