Vader to be available in 360 Soul Calibur 4 - PS3 gets Yoda
Well, that took a long time to happen. Bandai-Namco are finally going to do the right thing and are going to let you play as Vader on the 360 in Soul Calibur 4. Most people said this would happen, but we really didn't know when it would happen or if somebody would pull the plug on it. I was really annoyed about not getting Vader in the 360 version as to be honest I do not want to play as a backwards talking green midget in my epic sword fight game and I don't have a PS3 yet. Give me the Dark Lord of the Sith - kthxbai.
There is a price, as always with the dark side. The price today is capitalism, the route of all fanboy wish fulfillment. 400 MS points is the heavy toll we must pay for Vader goodness - that is if you are in Japan. Vader comes out as DLC on October 23rd in Japan but will almost certainly follow in other territories very shortly afterwards. Dates and final pricing for other regions have yet to be confirmed, but I'd bet by the end of November every territory will have him. The price will probably stay at 400MS points unless somebody wants to be a massive dick about things and raise it.
PS3 owners? Same date, same speculation but maybe a slightly different price as in Japan you will pay ¥600 (US$5.93) for Yoda. Not that you give a shit, but I hope you enjoyed all those extra months with a worthwhile extra character in your Soul Calibur for no additional cost.
You can read more about this story here. Hey, do you think that now one big Japanese games company has given in to the money fueled urges of 360 fanboys that Konami might finally give us a MGS4 port? Please?
