    Nice, another Blazblue game.
    Will the PS3 version also get the physical version??
    If yes, this will go into my collection instantly.
    Though i won't get the controller too.

    @Chary did you post this cause you saw my profile status about controllers? :P

    Is okay if you didn't, but seriously what your opinion on this? I remember how mortal kombat X had mentioned a Controller similar to this one. But it reminds me of sega genesis controller or saturn, Do people really like this kind of design? :unsure:

    It was actually a coincidence, it appeared in my email right after.

    The Sega Saturn gamepad is actually well-loved by many people, and is commonly used these days for fighting games and anything 2D.

    Hopefully, but the presser doesn't mention if it will be or not. I'll update the OP if I get any new info.

    Still for $130? The game is $60, so that is additional $70 for the controller included? O_O
    There better be more included in this limited edition premium package than just that. I mean, I don't believe that should cost more than the game itself. Not never!

    I remember getting Blaz blue continumm shift extend, and it had a music cd, and artwork (Which is silly cause is unlockable in game), callender and such. Also i hope this game is English dubbed, I like akasys localization titles, reminds me of old days of working designs, and is the 10 anniversary, good job :)

    Please do not cop out and leave it undubbed like Guilty gear xrd revelator and blaz blue chrono phantasm extend. :(

    You know i wonder about this too. There only been a few mobile ports, the first game for PSP, and second one for 3DS, psp, with the update extend for Japan exlusive PSp and then also for PSvita. Why haven't there been anymore mobile ports, do people think is not optimial to play fighting game on them due to possible controller supports? New 3DS has enough buttons to match console controls, but vita doesn't.:unsure:

    XInput for PC?? Doesn't that make it compatible with the xbox 360??
    I think they meant DInput, would be kinda cool to use this with other fighting games on the xbox 360
