Tekken X Street Fighter's producer Harada not worried about market saturation

Tekken X Street Fighter's producer Harada not worried about market saturation In an excerpted piece from an upcoming Gamasuta interview with Tekken X Street Fighter's producer, Katsuhiro Harada, he talks about not really being concerned with the fighting game market getting too saturated.

"The reason for that is because, back in the day when we used to make the previous Tekkens, it was mainly focused on one platform, be it the arcade or PlayStation hardware. Plus the user base was much more narrow; it tended to be 20 year old males," Harada said.

"But now we've noticed there's a broadening of the player base, where they're anywhere between 20 and 40 years of age, and you have various different hardware that are very viable platforms at the same time."

That has lead to a strategy for the series: "We really want to give players many different chances to play on different hardware that they own -- or in a particular situation, whether it be on the go, or at their house, or such. So that's really the reason behind announcing some Tekken titles for different platforms."

He added that the same people pretty much continue to play these titles, but newer and younger players are also entering the fray.

Namco Bandai recently released Tekken Hybrid for the PS3, and have other projects planned as well, including: Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Tekken 3D Prime Edition, a Tekken for the Wii U, and Tekken X Street Fighter.

Do you agree with Harada's opinion that the market won't become too saturated with fighting games? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

Cross Counter's Zhi posts some Daigo and Kazunoko match stats

Cross Counter's Zhi posts some Daigo and Kazunoko match stats UPDATED: Zhi has posted some more match statistics.

Zhi from Cross Counter has posted a quick statistical breakdown from recent matches where Daigo and Kazunoko have been participating in running sets at the Japanese arcades.

It looks like while Daigo is playing more Akuma than ever before, he's running into trouble in the Seth matchup and had to switch to Ryu to pull out a victory. Kazunoko's Seth seems to be dominating more and more by the day, though it doesn't look like he can get a clear advantage over Iyo and the loss to Daigo's Ryu is surprising.
  • Daigo Akuma || Nekojita Abel: 2-2
  • Iyo Ibuki || Kazunoko Seth: 4-4
  • Daigo Akuma || Kazunoko Seth: 4-14
  • Daigo Ryu || Kazunoko Seth: 6-2
  • Daigo Ryu || TKD Balrog: 6-3
  • Daigo Ryu || Younashi Juri: 6-8
  • Daigo Ryu || Kabocha Boy Adon: 3-5
  • Daigo Ryu || Hanamaruki Sagat: 9-3
  • Daigo Ryu || Jyobin Ryu: 6-2
  • Daigo Ryu || keNzo Akuma: 13-1

Street Fighter X Tekken styled combo mod for PC version of Super Street Fighter 4 AE

Liero116 did a unique mod for the PC release of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, which adds Street Fighter X Tekken styled chain combos into the game. He put up a few videos showcasing his work, check all of them out by hitting the jump.

This is a mod I've been working on/toying around with where a lot of moves cancel into others. I wanted to see how SFxT might feel so that's how it started. Essentially, everything is cancellable into super and special moves and ex focus cancels only cost 250 special instead of 500 AND you can do anything during that animation. Also, charge times are near instant (just for fun).

Super Street Fighter 4 AE: Bizarre glitch allows Ibuki to steal wins

A user sent in a YogaFlame24 match where Guile and Ibuki show down online. Midway through the match, a round that was won by Guile was awarded to Ibuki instead, and Ibuki lost meter. After Ibuki wins, the round win is processed normally.

Originally thought to be a video editing joke from YogaFlame, it turns out that this video was not touched by him in any way. Since these are Ranked matches (the video was downloaded from the leaderboards), the fact that the characters have the same BP and PP in-between rounds means that this video was not touched.

Check out the glitch below.
