Street Fighter III arcade version


#1

Since you guys hate me here already :wonder: , I just wanted to ask this question: How does Street Fighter III: Third Strike in the Anniversary Collection compare to the arcade version? Are the loading times the same, etc.? Somebody creates a thread just like this to make fun of me :rofl:


#2

From what I remember hearing, it’s pretty accurate to the arcade, but it uses a later build of the game that isn’t used in tournaments.


#3

What do you mean by a “later build”?


#4

He’s mistaking Anniversary Edition to the Dreamcast version.

The PS2 version is fine.


#5

He means a “better” build.

But isn’t that how it always is with console games?


#6

Capcom kinda sucks at revisions. Taking out unblockables doesn’t do shit to fix the game at all, maybe to scrubs but that’s about it.


#7

Fixed :looney:


#8

Well, NOW they do.

Then again I don’t even like 3S.


#9

So the DC version isn’t used in tourneys? :confused:


#10

Anniversary collection has an option to change the blocking recognition from ver a to ver b. Unblockables were nulled in the DC ver but Anniversary collection defaults to the 3s that we all know and love.


#11

What about the Xbox version? Also, if the “revision” (console version) is better, then why wouldn’t they use it for tournaments, like The Grey Ghost said?


#12

The rest of it seems to be covered, but I don’t think load times have been an issue since the days of 32 bit consoles. Maybe the load times in A3 on the DC were slightly noticeable (if I remember right), but beyond that, everything cruises along smoothly.


#13

The Dreamcast version isn’t used in tourneys.
The PS2 and XBOX versions are fine.

However the XBOX version is supposedly 5% faster because of the XBOX’s CPU.

Get the PS2 version, its the best and you have more options for controller usage.


#14

fucking search


#15

I’m getting mixed messages… You just said that the Xbox version is supposedly slightly faster, yet you say the PS2 version is better.


#16

The CPS-3 version has no load times,(You can skip the vs screen) and the resolution is sightly different from the PS2/XBOX/DC versions.
That’s all I noticed so far.


#17

I think that’s the overall message, yes. I got the other versions mixed up. PS2 appears to be the best, but Xbox is faster.


#18

It goes:

PS2 > XBOX > DC

None of them are arcade-perfect, but the PS2 is the most arcade-accurate, however it moves just a slight bit faster than arcade. XBOX goes about 5% faster, which is a much bigger deal than the PS2’s speed difference.

The Dreamcast has input delay and is based on a completely different build of the game where there’s no unblockables, so good-bye to Oro and Urien being nasty.

Okay, now fuck 3rd strike for a second. How accurate is Dc’s W Impact New Generation and 2nd Impact (aka teh sexiness)?


#20

arcade perfect iirc
