I'm glad to see that a contributing member of CAG actually won the games and that it wasn't one of the 2000 first time posters that posted in that thread.

Monday night sushi? Wait so what time did you actually record the CAGcast? I noticed you guys posted it some time after 11 and thought to myself dang they're in the studio late... I forgot there's probably some editing Wombat has to do right?

There is very little editing done.
The show, for the most part, would sound very much the same if it was live.
We were done by 7:15pm or so and started approximately 30 minutes beforehand.

You're moving to a country where everyone lives and dies by flashy cell-phones. I'm sure your Sidekick will be long forgotten soon. :D

Wombat is wrong about Sony's "offer" to Namco to secure SoulcaliburIII on the PS2. All of Namco's fighting games have been released on Sony's arcade hardware since Tekken 1. Tekken 4 and 5, as well as Soul Calibur 2 and 3, run on Sony v3 Arcade hardware which is essentially a PS2 in an arcade cabinet. Why bother making ports for GameCube and Xbox? They did it once with Soul Calibur 2 and the sales were piss poor compared to PS2 numbers.

There is no evil plot at work on this one. Nice try, though. But whatever, a third of what Wombat says is unfounded Sony bashing when he actually knows nothing at all. It's just sad when he's reduced to grasping at straws.

Everything that I've ever heard points to the GameCube version of Soul Calibur 2 outselling the PS2 and Xbox versions. I'd also be surprised if the Xbox numbers were "piss poor". I'm pretty sure the game sold well on all platforms.

Go to the Video Game Deals forum and find the contest thread. Click the number of posts in the column on the right...I cut and paste that whole window into Excel.

By the way, I didn't even know that you could do that to get all of the posters. Last time I had a contest I typed everyone into Excel.....your way is much easier.

What show were you listening to, cause I just re-listened to that section of the cast, where not only did I ASK if Sony made an offer (I never said that they did), in which I hoped a forum user would post the answer. I also professed my love and admiration for the Tekken and Virtua Figher series which unless Im mistaken their most recent incarnations are currently PS2 exclusives. The only evil plot here is forum users besmerching my good name.

Good day to you sir, you win no prize, you signed it yourself when entered my factory!!
