Tekken 6 Release

The release date of Tekken 5: The Dark Resurrection was the same with both arcade and with home console. However, in Tekken 6, the arcade version was released last November 26, 2007. How about the PS 3 game?
It is said that the release of Tekken 6 will arrive a few months after the release of Soulcalibur 4, which is supposedly about to go live next month. But are we sure about that? Tekken 6 release date has been moved from the 3rd quarter of 2007 to the 4th quarter of 2007 to now, the summer of 2008. This change of Tekken 6 release has been driving us insane. Are the guys at Namco Bandai doing this to toy with our minds? We were expecting some news on it last April when it was Namco Bandai's Gamers' Days but to no avail, they only talked about Soulcalibur 4 and the Xbox Live version of Soulcalibur. Yes we are already reassured on Soulcalibur's arrival, let's talk about Tekken 6 please.
While waiting, Tekken 6 will be included in this July's E3 Entertainment Expo, which will happen in Los Angeles, California. Hopefully between those dates the actual Tekken 6 date release will be changed from the infamous TBA to let's say September 2008, as was previously released by Fighter's Generation. (Cross your fingers, toes, arms and legs.)
All this uproar in waiting for the new game to arrive for home console is due to its tight features and fluid moves, respectfully retained from Tekken 3 onwards. One of the new features is the rage system that packs more power into your punches or hits as your vitality hits that red hue. There are also the funny item moves that the people at Namco Bandai have placed just to make us laugh. Some haters of the arcade game go as far as actually saying that these item moves are very noob friendly but to actually play the arcade game you will see that these item moves' damage are not that high. Also, this installment gives a longer health bar so these funny antics that the makers of Tekken 6 arcade made are really well compensated for. These new features, coupled with the 4 new characters are some of the reasons for the clamor in wanting a home version, as playing in the arcade san sometimes be costly and during peak-hours, it really is quite hard to find an empty Tekken 6 game. Also, for the home version, the multi-player online version of it is no longer an ad on (for Tekken 5, it required an additional $10 for that option) which makes one salivate even more
After July of 2008, when Soulcalibur 4 has already been released in the market, the people at Namco Bandai will no longer have any excuse in making us wait any longer. However, on the bright side, they may be putting off the release as developers are adding cinematics, extra customizations for consoles and basically getting the kinks out for the online multiplayer. So when Tekken 6 for PS3 is released in the market, it better be as mind blowing as the transition from Tekken 2 to Tekken 3!
