Tekken 5 is still one of my favourite fighting games. Glad that the series is successful.

One of my favourite game series of all time, glad it's achieved so much. Hope the future is good to it and the next iteration arrives sooner than later, took years between 6 and 7.

Nice!

Why couldn't they wait for it to hit 50m.. 49m just feels like a premature celebration. Congrats either way.

Yeah, "Tekken Series Sells Under 49 Million Units" would have been the better title. ;-)

You know what I mean, I would have just waited for the series to eventually reach 50m to celebrate. Does this mean we get another celebration when Tekken hits 50m? Because it will feel odd they don't acknowledge the 50m milestone and would feel even odder to celebrate twice for similar milestones. Anyway I might be thinking too much into it.

Too bad Virtua Fighter wasn't this successful.

It's not nearly as accessible, among other things.

If anytrhing Virtua Fighter is a lot easier to get into than Tekken for beginners. But people play Tekken as a button masher and don't even know what is required to get even decent. Virtua Fighter just didn't have the flair, or historic association with playstation consoles. How it is on the western console side of things anyway. Virtua Fighter was always seen as the big man on campus within Japanese arcades.
