Why not just release a full game on disc? I know so many people that avoided this game altogether.

Not on disc, but a pretty sexy set.

i think they were too scared to spend so much $$$ on a long-dormant series like KI and wanted to see how well it'd do as a XBL title.

Then avoid an enjoyable fighter because of whatever ridiculous reason you're trying to get at.

I don't think it's ridiculous to ask for a full game. KI was released half baked and everyone knows it. if they don't then they're delusional. They should have waited and released a full game, digital or not. And yeah I would have preferred a digital copy so I can have the game as long as it exisit. Who knows when it will be delisted, and yes it can happen.

This seems like the most logical conclusion, it's a 10 year old game looking back on games that released new additions to the series (Doom 3, DNF) are not known for selling well.

my mom used to say **** or get off the pot. imo they shouldn't have bothered - or just waited for a full game..

on the other hand -- so if the game didn't sell well they would abandon it with 8 fighters? Either way sounds fairly lame and half-baked.

thnx sonicteam2k1
