All of us have been anticipating this game for a decade. The standards are going to be set extremely high. And we all know how games cost money to make. Why not make a purchasable beta(though i prefer an alpha) later on in the development. s
[*]Make alittle extra money for full development process
[*]Appease the majority of the starving audience(ex Evo and E3 goers)
[*]Getting people in on the beta creates more loyal(if that is even possible) customers
[*]Allow for exploits and balancing issues to be brought to light.(your going to get books of information on each character from shoryuken.com)
[*]Can release it later as a demo closer to the release date
Reasons why it may be bad:
[*]Video game PR is alot like waiting for dinner. Cookies(beta/demos) can spoil your appetite for dinner.
[*]Negative response for making a beta(purchase only) could lead to bad PR[Lets face it Activision increasing the price of dlc didn’t change a thing]
[*]It takes alot of work.
Tell me what you guys think. I doubt this will work but look at the MVC2 port, it was brought back because we showed interest.
Lets give them something to consider!!**
