EventHubs' readers chose Killer Instinct, Blazblue Chrono Phantasma, and 4 others as the 6 games they want on the EVO 2014 line up

Earlier this month, we here at EventHubs generated an unofficial poll to determine which 6 games our readers most wanted to see on the official EVO 2014 line up. Although a few of the games that received the most votes were ones you'd expect, we do have a few surprises on the list.

Over 15,000 votes were sent in, and the final tallies show that our readers would like to see both Killer Instinct and Blazblue Chrono Phantasma played as main games in Vegas next year.

There are a still four other games that were voted in, so be sure to hit the jump to see if your choices made the cut.

Poll: Which 6 games do you most want to see on the official EVO 2014 line up?

While it was confirmed that Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be on the official EVO 2014 line up if Capcom releases it in early June, which they have planned, we won't be receiving information on the remaining games until January of next year. So while we wait, one of our readers gave us the idea to run a poll asking which games you all want to see at EVO next year. Thanks, DevilMaySpy!

Below, we have listed all of the main fighting game titles currently featured in tournament play, and we are giving you the option to select 6 different games.

If there is a title we missed, or you'd just like to see something else played that wasn't listed, hit the "Other" option, and let us know which game you chose in the comments section.

EventHub's readers chose which 6 main games they'd like to see played at SoCal Regionals 2014 - Killer Instinct and Melee make the cut

Last week, we here at EventHubs created a poll to get an idea of which 6 games our readers would most like to see as the main titles played at SoCal Regionals 2014. This was an unofficial poll generated to give the Level|Up team a better idea of what the community would like to see played next year.

The votes have been tallied, and the results are in. Interestingly enough, both Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Killer Instinct made it into the top 6, beating out games like Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Street Fighter X Tekken. Melee is a game that isn't really played at most major events, (sans Smash specific tournaments), and Killer Instinct is still yet to be released.

Street Fighter 2 on SNES sold 10x more copies than Street Fighter 4 on consoles in Japan - statistics showing decline of Japan fighting game sales

A French site by the name of GameCharts.fr recently posted an article that exhibits sales numbers for console fighting games in Japan. Organized into several charts and graphs, we get a look out how each listed game sold, ranging from the Street Fighter 2 series on Super Nintendo, all the way through the Xbox 360 / PS3 generation, including mobile consoles.

Looking at the numbers, it is quite shocking to see that console fighting game sales have greatly dropped since the early Super Nintendo days.

According to the statistics, the very first iteration of Street Fighter 2 sold a whopping 2,880,00 copies, with the following two games in the series also selling in the millions. Jumping forward to 2009, Street Fighter 4 (Vanilla) only sold 210,641 copies on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 collectively.
