    Behind Karin's golden locks and razer-sharp sharp wit lies a true martial artist trained in the unique "Kanzuki style" of fighting. Utilizing her new dash move allows her to close distances quickly with her opponents and go in for quick high-low attacks or throws. Her well-rounded skills allow her to possess a full set of tools and deploy a wide array of strikes and maneuvers that will have opponents feeling the pressure. For fans who've longed for her return, or for those just looking for a quick fighter with lots of versatility, Karin is a welcome addition to Street Fighter V!

    Awesome news! It's looking like SFV will be the title that finally takes me 'next-gen' after sitting on the fence about which console to go with since they all launched... although my xbox friends will hate me.

    I still say that this game being only on PS4 was a bold move by Capcom, many who compete will hate this and prolly already do. Game is OK at best (Needs Juri)

    Okay.. now go EX and put in Pullum or Hokuto.

    Can't see what is so special about the fighting style of her by the way. Enlightenment allowed.

    I kind of agree (just from the selfish standpoint of 'shiiiit - I need to buy a new console'), but most tournaments went with PS3 exclusive hardware (for multi-plat games) at least 2 years ago - switching up to PS4 exclusivity isn't anything too radical really.
    ...I'd still like it on my 360 though, just coz of all my various fight controllers :unsure:

    Isn't SFV for PC as well? Every peripheral works on PC. There is also crossplay with PS4 userbase, last I heard.

    True, but it would cost me more to upgrade my PC to a respectable gaming specification than a PS4 will cost me.

    Not really, a well budgeted $500 Gaming PC could output basically what a PS4 would look like. You need to remember that this gen was the released under powered in comparison to high tier PC's which was a strange move but all they could do now I guess, technologies moving too fast for them to keep up (and getting more expensive)

    Yeah I guess it all depends on where your current PC is at right now.
    Though, if you lose the ability to plug your current 360 accessories, that is effectively some monetary damage. My stick with custom sanwa parts costed a total of ~$150 back in the day; I've been holding off purchasing a driving wheel accessory for the very reason of console compatibility, it's scary to potentially throw all that money into the trash, for a single accessory.
