Competitive gamers will definitely be disappointed by the updated Chinatown Fair Arcade, but it’s still a one-of-a-kind establishment here in Manhattan. What’s more, we’re told that Tekken and Street Fighter will probably arrive in the coming months.

Street Fighter X Tekken moves 1.4 million copies, Capcom says sales 'lagged'

Street Fighter X Tekken moves 1.4 million copies, Capcom says sales 'lagged' Capcom reported through their investor relations page that Street Fighter X Tekken had moved 1.4 million copies. This title received some negative publicity before it was released for having on disc DLC, and in their press release Capcom stated sales for the game lagged.

The projected sales numbers for Street Fighter X Tekken were 2 million, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases, but the total sold to date isn't too far off this projection, and it's possible they'll get up to this number during the holiday season and with continued support of the title, which Christian Svensson said has a, "very long term plan for support."

GameSpot's Fighting Games Symposium continues with Harada, James Chen, Haunts, Adam Urbano and Patrick Riley

GameSpot's Fighting Games Symposium continues with Harada, James Chen, Haunts, Adam Urbano and Patrick Riley GameSpot's Maxwell McGee continues his Fighting Game Symposium with five new interviews. These community members include SEGA's Director of International Product Development, Patrick Riley, UltraChenTV's James Chen, NetherRealm Studios' Senior Producer, Adam Urbano, Iplaywinner's Haunts and Namco's Producer Katsuhiro Harada.

Here is a bit from James Chen's interview.

Why do people enjoy fighting games?

It's just human nature to enjoy competition. Since early civilization, people have been competing against each other: Go, chess, the Olympics, etc. In fact, if you think about it, video games were created on the basis of competition. Pong was one of the first video games ever, and it was a competitive game. It's almost shocking how much motivation is generated through the idea of competition. Look at Xbox achievement points and leaderboards.

Fighting games turn out to be one of the purest forms of competitive gaming ever thanks to their depth and, thus, appeal to just about everyone's competitive side. People who can't play them wish they could. And, most importantly, fighting games showcase a player's personality. The style in which you play a fighting game is a direct reflection of who you are and how you think, so winning the way you want to win generates a strong sense of pride, almost like self-vindication. Dieminion's solid Guile gameplay, Poongko's crazy Seth mix-ups, and Valle's unpredictable Ryu speak volumes more about the players themselves than the characters they use or the game they are playing.

You can check out the first set of interviews in the symposium featuring Seth Killian, Yosuke Hayashi, Mike Z and Maximilian here.
