Yes, it is. But this version routinely sold for $60-100 used for years, and can be played on a system that far more people own. This is a really good deal for those interested.

Its a good deal for those who are unfortunate enough not to have a next gen console. IF you had a choice between the 2, definitely get the the ps3/360 version as they are superior in every way (and also the ps2 version is probably the worst version of mvc2 made).

Still good deal if this fits your bill.

The game isn't terrible but it's so far removed from the arcade that it's really not worth it unless PS2 is the only system you have.

That's pretty funny, considering that the online population on XBL is almost nonexistent, while it's always on the best sellers list.

i still have mine for the ps2, that said, it's easier/better played on ps3 or 360 if you like that controller.

PS2 does have a bit of a nostalgic feel to it

uh...XBLA MvC2 is still very active. I can find matches swiftly even at 4 in the morning.

That really is odd, every time I check there's only like 2 people online? Whenever I refresh or something it's still the same people.

Which, in some cases, you can STILL find cheaper than this with a Dreamcast. Granted, it's mostly Craigslist the point still stands you can have the superior version of the 3(DC, Xbox, PS2), for fairly cheap. I still have my DC copy that I bought when it came out and I was a little shocked when the PS2/Xbox versions skyrocketed in price.


Of course, the $15 online version tops them all.

The DC version of MVC2 is far superior than the ps2 and ps3. I don't really feel comfortable playing in any other controller that isn't a DC controller. However that's one of the few fighting games I have for Dreamcast.The only bad thing about the game overall is the horrible repetitive music.

How is the DC version far superior to the PS3 port?

It isnt superior. The downloadable version is the dreamcast port because the DC has the best possible port of the arcade version. Infact its superior because you can chose the different graphic modes and all the characters are unlocked from the get go so anyone can just jump in and play whoever they want to without unlocking them.




Its 15 on PSN/XBL.


Yes but were not talking about the downloadable version are we? No, were talking about the actual physical copy of the game that had a low print run.

Try and actually read before you respond and stay on its topic. We have enough people on here already that just blindly respond to stuff as it is, we dont need more.

Thats as stupid as someone talking about getting one of these

And you saying "Mcdonalds has them for a buck" and then walking away.

Yeah you may be talking about the same thing in general, but in reality they are nothing alike.

Not hard to understand why its more expensive. 1) Millions still own and use say the playstation 2 while few still use a dreamcast or even have one anymore, so demand for a ps2 version is much greater. 2) It had a low print run so its more expensive.

Exactly right.

Also something to beware of is the Mad Catz line of controllers don't work on PS2 games for those of you like me with BC PS3's. Problem is Sony hasn't patched in support for those controllers in any of their firmware updates.

That would be an important point IF the thread was about reselling games...

Try and actually read before you respond and stay on its topic. We have enough people on here already that just blindly respond to stuff as it is, we dont need more.

I'd like to think it's on topic, if a bit blunt. For one thing it informs those who don't know that the game is available on PSN/XBLA for less (I'll admit there are probably very few people who don't know this, but at the same time it doesn't seem any less of a stretch than those arguing that there are CAGs out there who might not yet own a PS3/360), so it's not exactly off-topic.

More importantly, even if the guy was just trying to hand-wave away the deal they're still justified IMO. Just read the comments; there's a better version of it for less, there's a better PHYSICAL version of it for less, and ever since the game got this recent port, it hasn't been hard to find on GS.com. In short: this doesn't seem like much of a deal, or at least one that doesn't necessarily deserve it's own thread.

I miss the days where owning a console port was just a way to practice before heading to the arcade, like having a basketball hoop mounted on the garage.

I was lucky enough to go to a college that had a game room in the basement. We had shit like Gauntlet, MVC2, Tekken 4, Arctic Rush, a jukebox, etc. I missed so many classes being down there with the crew lol.

QFT.

At least in the San Francisco area there's still a decent arcade scene, but it's kind of a pain to get to them.
CAG: Where it doesn't matter how good or how cheap a game is, but games would only be "worth buying" to people if only they were $10 cheaper.
