    Yet still no 360 release. I wasn’t expecting it, but it’s still such a stab in the back.

    • Alex Martinez

      But it makes sense though. The main demographic is still Japan and the 360 is a niche console over there. Then when you get to international release, the game itself is a niche series, the fighting game genre is niche, and even though the 360 has a bigger audience outside of Japan, odds are they’re probably going to be playing their fighting games more on the PS3 than 360.

      If Blazblue had the popularity of other fighters, then we might have seen a mutli-console release outside of Japan like Revengeance did. Unfortunately it was not to be.
