Im new to this board, so forgive me for asking an old question and/or posting in the wrong spot. I cross-posted a version of this question on GameFAQs, but I wanted some more input.
Im a (really) old-guy fighting game fan who honestly plays them for the characters and the stories and is at best an intermediate player on a good day.
I havent been able to afford getting into the current generation of systems, which has been OK, as the PS2 has become a really great system for fighting games. But Im hoping that by March of next year, I will be able to jump on-board.
The opinions I seek are related to the following: for a fighting game fan, which next-gen system should I get?
Heres some facts about me that are pertinent to the question:
- Unless someone can make a really compelling case for it, Im not interested in the Wii (and I am of the camp that Smash Brothers is not a fighting game).
- Im not interested in online competitive play (because I kind of suck).
- A blu-ray player is a nice extra, but not something I consider worth it in itself
- As far as I can tell, all the major fighting games are coming to both systems, with the exception of DOA4 and Tekken 6. I realize that Tekken 6 will be a superior game, but I will readily admit that I also like DOA. So I would genuinely miss either.
The majority of people on GameFAQs advised the PS3, but without really giving any reasons.
Thoughts? Thanks in advance.
