Amazon will carry the bonus as well which is why I linked both sites



there is no mention of this anywhere in the Amazon link.
Are you sure?
I want to pre-order, but I don't do business with GS anymore.

thanks

so what is the difference between KoFXII & KoFXIII?
FXII got so many negative reviews.
sorry for the dumb question but Im new to this franchise since Im more of a Street fighter fan.


Here's a list of what I know.

- KoFXIII is more of a return to roots. It gets rid of a lot of systems that were in XII, such as the Critical Counter.
- Characters all get new balance, and new moves, making them more complete versions of their unfinished XII iterations.
- Lots of new characters.
- Story Mode
- Challenge Mode
- (allegedly) Strong Netcode
- Color Editor (Long overdue in fighting games)
- Robust Training Mode.
- 5 Console Exclusive Characters.
- Teams are back (Women's Team, AoF Team, etc...)
- Lots of new stages.
- EX Moves (Which are new to KoF entirely)
- Drive Cancels (The ability to cancel specials into other specials)
- Hyper Drive Mode is back.
- Max Cancels (Similar to Dream Cancels)
- Guard Cancels Attacks/Rolls return.
- Mai Shinraui TnA :drool:.

This game is really great. We've been playing the "leaked" pc version (it's actually the japanese arcade version since that runs on PCs) for a while and its really fun.

In for this day one.

I like the different box art, I prefer the PS3's. Nice preorder bonus, but I'm not a huge KOF fan


I have no interest in the game. They both look good, but I think the PS3 box art looks better.


I actually like the xbox box art better.

I doubt KOF13 will dissapoint, though I wish the price was $40 rather then $50 but whatever.

I've actually never owned any KoF games aside from the ones that came with my Xbox off eBay, but from what my friend tells me about how hard they're trying to make up for KoF '12's disappointment and how they're trying to shove in every single character they can in this game, I might be on board for this. Thanks OP. $50 is okay since it's not a direct update (a la SFIV vs. SSFIV) but its own entity with its own code, but I do appreciate the $10 drop for those who got screwed on the last game. Let's just hope the roster will inherently kill most of the possible DLC for this game, I know the last game had a megaton of it. The pre-order bonus is solid since we very rarely get full OSTs (ie: Catherine) included especially with the standard edition, apology games are the best.

The one that has Neo Pads and Neo Sticks, of course.

Whichever system your friends are on. Don't listen to any of that "PS3 Controller is better for fighting games" garbage.

Both PS3 and 360's controllers are equally as bad for fighters. Get a stick for a console and then stick with fighters on that platform.

Not everyone wants a stick
I would much rather use a controller

Your better off getting a specialized pad then, both 360 and PS3 pads are really bad for 2D games.

I've played the "PC" version and it's great, much better than any of Capcom's modern fighters.

I was burned hard on KoF12 when I bought it day 1. It just lacked...stuff to do. The online was also a mess. Not going to do that again unless I see improvements/reviews first.

The iPhone version of KOFXIII is out and only $4.99 until tomorrow! (Normal price is $7.99). It's a great portable version - though there is no online mode - and it's crazy to think that it'll be $49.99 when it comes to consoles later this year. I'd gladly pay just five bucks for a gimped version.

Here's a YouTube video here and a review here.
