It first really stuck me with Fate/ Unlimited Codes (yet to be unreleased?) and Dissidia. For and more items are being able to be downloaded into memory cards as in whole games or to make a game run faster without long loading times.

Personally, I like to hold something physical in my hands. Fate/UC is supposedly (should have already but meh...) only coming to the states by means of download. Personally, I want the actual thing. You get a booklet with the actual game, and there isn't a chance that it might get erased on accident. For things like DIssidia's data transfer, I'm all for. Taking up some extra space on a card to run faster would be a plus.

Personally I like both, for portability and convenience. Along with a collectors soul to have that physical copy as proof.

Type-Moon stuff doesn't have enough of a following in the States for spin-off fighting games to be deemed profitable in retail form. Nothing's stopping you from importing it for $50, though. I know how it is to have that "collector's soul", and wanting to own the actual item...

Personally, I would love to import it, but then I get to another gripe of mine. When the game does come out over here, it will be incompatible with an American version(from my past experiences), so if I want to play against someone, I have to go and pick up another version and work to beat that one 100% as well. :/

But... it's not GOING to come out here. The fact that none of the Melty Blood games have been released here is a pretty good sign of that.

No pre-order info about it on Gamestop.com, and the only US release date according to Gamefaqs is 9/3/09 as a downloadable title. Much like several obscure XBLA titles (like Triggerheart Exelica), it's technically a miracle they're even localizing it as a d/l game.

Also, Sony says a lot of things. :lol: Like giant enemy crabs being based on Japanese history and such.

It's not physical. It's only available at the Playstation store for download. Several places actually did reviews of it. I have poor internet connection at the dorm to get on with my PSP so i have yet to verify it.

*Ah, so its yet to come out. Thanks for the date. Still I wonder if I should get the physical import to save memory/hold something.
