given the current very bad state of sega's finances and that very complicated dont sell as well it seems. (more people play tekken atleast in the us.) and in japan, maybe by this point, tekken has made as much money as vf? plus the other fighting games, soul caliber, capcom vs snk etc. being somewhat less deep in terms of gameplay (not complexity, those games have plenty of moves and characters etc) do you think the next vf should just be a simpler game? the change of names from numbers to an X seems to indicate this. kind of like how there was street fighter 2 and street fighter EX. maybe this will be a dumbed down vf? actually i hope so, if i hope for anything, maybe making a complicated VF4 will just be a bad buisiness decision? note: even if a complicated vf does come out, and does get popular in japan, that may still not be enough for sega to post a profit or pay back its debt. maybe they should just be smart and make a dumbed down vf (but still pretty) that will have a good chance of selling everywhere and see if they can make a profit and keep themselves alive.
