Street Fighter Alpha 1 (PSX) available on PSN


#1

I haven’t downloaded it yet, but I’m going to ASSUME that the game doesn’t have a 2P mode (why). I’ll try to find out more information though. Anyway, just thought I’d post up to let people know it’s available for $5.99.


#2

wowza! do you know if it’s coming out for the 360? :wonder:


#3

Its the PS1 version of Alpha. I don’t think it would get a 360 release.


#4

Might as well named this thread “Waste-of-time available on PSN”.


#5

lol shit u beat me 2 it I was just gonna say the same thing


#6

Let me guess…horrible port.

What PSX fighting games are really good ports and only available on PSX?


#7

It’s not that it’s horrible, it’s that if you care about ANY SFA game just get SFA Anthology. This was a pointless addition.


#8

I’m surprised this gets any press here at all what with the whining about this game back in the day. “Ewww, chain combos in SF? BAWWWW!”.


#9

Random select A3 ftw.


#10

Street Fighter EX + Alpha

Maybe EX 2 too but I didn’t play that.


#11

Ex2 sucked anyway, even if it was accurate. Try Rival Schools.


#12

i feel the same way. You should spend your money on bionic commando instead


#13

^^^

agreed


#14

They shouldve given yall Alpha 3 Max on PSN or something. With online and shit.


#15

Almost pointless if you want remixed music. If you get Anthology you’ll get just CPS-1 and CPS-2 music. But… That’s a different story altogether if you play Hyper Street Fighter Alpha.


#16

Ha… i liked the remix music in this game.

SFA was actually the FIRST PSX game that I bought when I got the system… because they didn’t have any more copies of Battle Arena Toshinden 2. :slight_smile:

It was good for it’s time but I figured I might as well give a heads up, even though it’s obvious that it’s out to anyone that checks the PSN store regularly.


#17

what where they thinking?


#18

That kaillera, ggpo, 2df, p2p, etc doesn’t exist.


#19

A1 was horrible. Chain combos + juggles = Death if you got touched, especially in the corner.


#20

Ah, I love SFA1. I understand why it’s not very popular. Many don;t like the easy chain combos, there aren’t many characters to choose from, and there are only six backgrounds.

But I still like it.

Also the PS1 version is fantastic. It’s a fantastic port of the game.

I also agree that nothing touches SFA Anthology. Save your money and buy that game. You won’t regret it.
