Ok. You all know Mr Wizard and yu he’s not famous for been very open to community input. If he hypothetically posts tomorrow that Evo ISN’T a DC tournament anymore, just like it isn’t an arcade tournament anymore, or how it chose to use items in Smash, the MvC2 community would rather not have MvC2 at all. Is that correct?
Remember that what the commnity likes isn’t necessarly what’s best for Evo, and they made that clear by going to consoles and allowing items for SSBB. I do agree with both decisions, but most people didn’t at the time.
I’m just asking. Yes. There is a difficulty in finding MvC2 for the PS2. True. But there will never be a shotage of PS2s (they’re already there for other games, side tourneys and what not), and instead of carrying dozens of extra DCs (many will be lost during Evo) they can just press open on the PS2 and change the game. It would save time, money and work. It would also make for a much worse version of the game.
Most people see MvC2 as a given every year, and I do too. But, if there’s a reason to get rid of the game, I believe the Evo staff has made it clear that the reason are DCs. The price reasoning some of you menioned are legit, but I don’t thibk the logistics of extra luggage, extra work, frying systems, and blue screens on official DVDs make the Evo staff very happy. One day, full of new games, they may decide that DCs are too much of a pain in the ass to have at Evo.
I’m not asking about a choice of which MvC2 version is better or more fun, which is obvious. I’m asking what would be your choice if the choice is Yes Marvel (crappy PS2 version) or No Marvel (stay home and wait for Season’s Beatings). That’s pretty much it.
