Halo anniversary thats a bad idea the spawns on those maps right now are really bad they should just do the Halo Reach no bloom no sprint gametypes.


#4

Will UMvC3 be played on xbox 360 or ps3 because I only have an xbox 360 stick D:


#5

is there anyway that street fighter can be played on 360 because i only have an arcade stick for xbox


#6

I can’t stay logged in for more than 2 seconds with the old account, so this is me now.

Registration will be open sometime today. Should be pretty soon as of this posting.

RE: Xbox 360 support: While the “official” fighting game tournaments will be on the PS3, if you can get 16 or so people together that want to play a particular game we can help you run a mini-tournament and provide some level of prize support for it. It won’t be as much as if you had entered the main tournament, but I suppose that’s a possibility.

Registration is officially open at www.sctechcomm.org!
