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.

Harada: If Tekken and Dead or Alive collaborate, nobody would know what's going on anymore - says too many franchises currently crossing over

Famitsu recently sat down for an interview with, Tekken producer, Katsuhiro Harada, and Dead or Alive producer, Yosuke Hayashi, to speak about the free-to-play business model that has become more common in fighting games as of late. With Namco Bandai having released Tekken Revolution, currently working on Soul Calibur: Lost Swords, and Tecmo Koei with Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters, these two producers are very familiar with the concept of F2P.

Among the in-depth discussion, Famitsu asked the Namco / Tecmo representatives about the possibility of a cross over between Tekken and Dead or Alive. Harada-san steps up with a response, and says that with Street Fighter X Tekken, and Virtua Fighter characters in DoA, that the fighting game universe will become jumbled.

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.
