Is it wrong for me to admit that the main reason I bought this game was to undress all the pretty girls?

I guess when they say 'traditional' fighter they actually mean, 'apart from Super Smash Bros.'

Why put 2m sales in the title, then say its 2m shipped in the article :? . Is it because 2m shipped is hardly worth a mention, thought so

It probably had a reasonable amount to do with the reasonably high profile advertising campaign it's received. I see adverts for it on TV 2 or 3 times a day in the UK. I think even some of the biggest publishers are still a bit hesitant to put a lot of money into TV advertising campaigns.

Nintendo seem to have clocked onto this reasonably well in the last few years as a result of mainstream appeal.

no i think that would be wank fodder for a lot of star wars fans. now big breasted female admiral ackbars(don't know the race, think its mon calamari?), that would be wrong. mind u i'm sure i've seen a few big breasted wookies around the glasgow area.

I'm looking forward to SC 5, which'll feature key members from Hill Street Blues.

Let's hope the 360 gets Joyce Davenport...
That's you, that is.

My favourite thing in SC 4 so far, beating people using the same move over and over, makes me roar.

Yeah I agree online there are alot of one trick players out there but sc4 isn't all that bad but still the starwars characters (as cool as they are) didn't really need to be there. If you fancy some fair play online games add me also good to get the honors. Also the boobs aren't really that appealing. anyway my psn id is gogo65uk.

I bought the 360 version, and my console died before I ever got to play it. It should be in Frankfurt by now, with any luck I'll sample SC4 next week some time.

Oh dear indeed.

Still, we need a "big breasted" replacement now that DOA has died.

I think was namco need to do, is use the Soul Calibur 4 engine and create a full on starwars beat'em up. There are so many characters from the star wars universe, incorperate different fighting styles and it would sell like hot cakes!!!
