Everyone who says they will wait for a new "complete" version are just ill informed. Yes Capcom has done similar things with the Street Fighter series but not with every game they put out. If you choose to wait for a version of the game that doesn't exist yet, fine, but don't discourage other from playing a good game now in hope of a better version down the line.
Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 2 Championship Edition, Street Fighter 2: Hyper Edition, Super Street Fighter 2, Super Street Fighter 2: Somethingsomething...
Haha, I still remember how many times they re-released Street Fighter 2. Capcom's not changed since the old days. They'll milk anything people are willing to keep paying for.
I would totally go back and play a 10 year old fighter when there was an updated version thats just as fun and has the same features if not more, but hey thats just me.
If the 10 year old fighter is a helluva lot cheaper and apparently is "just as fun," then well yeah, I'd probably just play the old one I'm used to.
Plus, I'm pretty sure lacking a number of characters is more than a small amount of missing in MvC3.
Newer is not always better.
Anyways, I'm waiting for this one to hit $15-20, then I'll get it. Just too much taken from the classic game for anyone to pay $40-60 for imo.
