Some of you disagreed with my prediction that the PS3 version would be cheaper. Looks like Sony's trend is to release PSP games... and then make them better and cheaper on the PS3. Does that sound fair to you?
The once-exclusive PSP version of Tekken 5, entitled Dark Resurrection may be heading to the PLAYSTATION 3. According to Jeux-France, the latest issue of Famitsu details a potential HD version of Tekken: Dark Resurrection to be released through the online PlayStation Store. It appears that, like Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories before it, Bandai Namco is attempting to maximize the audience for this enhanced fighting game. No other details, like a release date, or a price, have been revealed.
Will you feel burned again if this PSP exclusive heads over to another console... for less money?
[Update 1: No longer a rumor. Confirmed. With pictures.]
Australia has given the world some really great things like Steve Irwin, kangaroos, Nicole Kidman and her first film - BMX Bandits, which just so happens to be one of my favorite childhood movies. So in honor of Steve, Nicole, BMX Bandits and kangaroos the world over, I bring you the Australian software chart.
Top 10 games
1. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team (DS)
2. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team (GBA)
3. Kingdom Hearts 2 (PS2)
4. FIFA 2007 (PS2)
5. Lego Star Wars II (PS2)
6. AFL Premiership 2006 (PS2)
7. Test Drive Unlimited (Xbox 360)
8. SingStar Anthems bundle (PS2)
9. Tekken Dark Resurrection (PSP)
10. Saints Row (Xbox 360)
It's nice to see a Tekken in the top 10 since PSP games haven't necessarily been tearing things up in Japan. However, it's clear that even the mighty Aussies have fallen victim to the disease that is Pokemon. Is no one safe?
It seems like Namco's marketing push for Tekken: Dark Resurrection's release in Europe extends far beyond silly videos involving disappearing milk. The Let Tekken Decide website is true to its namesake and lets you choose fighters to determine the winner of epic battles such as: Rock vs. Rap, Shampoo vs. Conditioner, Chocolate vs. Vanilla, Paper vs. Plastic, and more. Strangely, it doesn't feature any characters from the game, and actually has worse production values than a similarly-themed internet fan video from a few months ago.
Due to harsh language, a not safe for work video is embedded after the cut.

It appears Tekken Dark Resurrection is looking pretty sweet. Sort of early PS2-ish, we'd say.
And no, we're not going to launch into a "looks good for a PSP game" tirade, mostly because it appears the PSP has had a pretty good run so far in the graphics department with titles like Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Fight Night Round 3. More eye candy! Yay!
