As if the onslaught of potential "AAA" games won't put a big enough dent in your wallet.
Fighting purists will always say such games are best played with the old-fashioned joystick control scheme, which is why the truly hardcore will have the option of purchasing what you see here : a Tekken 6 bundle that includes the specially branded joystick with those big ol' arcade-style buttons. They'll toss in a pretty art book as well, but the entire bundle will cost $149.99, so prepare your bank account for bad news. However, if this doesn't bother you and you simply want the chance to play Tekken 6 the way fighters "were meant to be played," you can pre-order now at places like GameStop, GameCrazy, Best Buy, and Amazon.com. If you opt for GameStop, you will receive the extra bonus of a samurai pack that "adds more customization options for all 40 characters." This pack also gives you the collectible calendar, featuring all the hottest Tekken babes…which is, of course, the best part of the entire bundle, right? I mean, we all need to have a schedule and we all need a calendar, so… Tekken 6 is bound to be one of the biggest releases of 2009, so in this particular case, pre-ordering may not be a bad idea.
We'll be interested to see how it fares against other major releases this fall, though, because even though it'll be huge, there are lots of "huge" titles coming our way.
