Ok I love fighting games. Been playing them since the original SF2 in arcades. As arcades died and console games took over the fighting genre was in trouble. But SF4 changed all that, capcom made fighting genre relevant to the modern gamer. Part of that was because they made online play not so difficult/incompetent as it had been in previous fighters.
MS is saying dedicated servers for everything (cloud service really). If this gets applied to fighting games then well.... I'm sold. I know you FPS fans like your dedicated stuff, but for fighting games it's not just a nicety, it's a must have. Fighting games really heavily on timing and frames, making it an equal playing field to me is a huge thing for online play.
All that being said, nothing will ever beat standing at the same arcade and going at it with a 'live' person :))))))) --- PSN/XBL/Steam - cowboyoni
Agreed. I mostly lost interest in fighting games this generation because of the huge emphasis on online play, and the latency for online fighting games killed it for me. Hopefully dedicated servers are implemented into fighting games so that the playing field is more level. --- Great job! PSN - CameraManDan, XBL - CameraManDanXBL
I think fghting games are more fun in arcades, 25-50 cents to play a few rounds with your friend. Theyre entirely one dimensional. KI being pushed as anything "next gen" is kinda laughable --- GT- Flying Abstract i boost achievements, hit me up!
I want SF5 on Xbox One/PS4!!!! 3rd strike animation and something similar in gameplay would make me cry. But ya, dedicated servers would make the whole online thing that much better when it comes to fighting games. --- XBLive Tag: QuBics PSN Tag: QuBix

I remember them saying we'd have to wait until 2016-17... --- You down with O.P.P? People that answered correctly: 45
Dedicated servers are going to benefit fighting games the most imo. Hopefully some more fighters get announced, because KI looks like the worst fighting game i've seen in years. It's mind boggling to me that so many on this board seem to want it. --- Wolf Parade, Swan Lake, Built to Spill, Sunset Rubdown, The Hold Steady, Modest Mouse, Handsome Furs, Plants and Animals
