Virtua Fighter (hard to compare since the release dates were so far apart), Street Fighter IV, Blaz Blue, King of Fighters and probably Tekken in the future, will have all outsold the 360 multi platform version. But Soul Calibur IV has sold better on the 360.

Proof that Yoda > Vader ?

Yeah i know its pretty shocking, but there have been so few fighters this gen that people have forgotten about the franchise

Oh well, it seems to be selling steadily, maybe 1.3 million?

Wow. The online for this game is terrible. It's either:

a) A spammer who uses the same move over and over (usually fast hard to dodge/unblockable attacks)
or b) a lagger, in which the game looks like it's running at negative FPS throughout the entire match

It's a good game, but now I realize what people meant when they say they quit because "of what noobs can get away with online". And what's up with getting set up against rank 100+ players? I'm damn level 2! Sorry, just venting.. -_-
