PS3 still the best console for Tekken 6
Tekken has been with PlayStation since the beginning. I even played Tekken 1 at the arcades. So I’m a die hard Tekken fan. I was a little saddened to see Tekken 6 being released on the 360, but not really surprised either. But I’m happy to see that the PlayStation 3 is still the lead platform.
“The game was programmed on PS3 architecture and specifically designed to make full use of the Cell’s SPU. So it’s going to be a big challenge to bring the game to the Xbox 360,” Harada said. Tekken 6 capitalizes on the PS3’s power, and by capitalize, I mean running on 60fps.
“After releasing Tekken 6 in the arcades, we developed an updated version called Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion. When we developed the update, we overhauled the graphic engine and created new shaders,” he said.
I’ve talked to a couple friends that have played Tekken 6 at the arcades and they are both amazed by it. Graphically and gameplay. The arcades in my state are horrible, we don’t even have Tekken 5 DR anymore!
There are also rumors of Sony trying to snag exclusive DLC for Tekken 6. I hope that’s true. Tekken owes it’s success to the PlayStation brand. No word on what the DLC might be.
