So the release dates have been announced leaving quite a conundrum for multi-console owners.
The game debuts on WiiWare this Monday the 22nd, PSN Thursday the 25th, and XBLA way in to the future timescape of October 1st.
So which one does a guy [used in a gender neutral sense] get?
WiiWare pros: It just seems right to have Megaman 9 on a Nintendo system. It comes out first so no waiting. Contols should be pretty good with the WiiMote.
PSN pros: Not too much longer of a wait than Wii. I have plenty of storage space. Controls should be great with the PS controller. PSP play also (as far as I know) available. Trophies?
XBLA pros: Achievements! and uh… plenty of storage space?
WiiWare cons: $#!%! I have no where to put this! Nintendo why do you make it so hard to give you my money?
PSN cons: Having to wait 3 days. I don’t download anything for PSN. Trophies?
XBLA cons: The thought of playing this game with that atrocious mushy d-pad is unbearable. October 1st! Have you watched the news? Our entire financial system may be in ruins by then. We may all be burning our consoles to heat our homes and cook our food. The future is too uncertain to wait 11 days from now!
So I guess the winner is PSN but as previously stated I don’t download anything for it. What’s everyone else doing? I must rely on herd mentality to make this decision. Please be my shepard!
