Earlier today, Major Nelson posted details regarding the discounts scheduled for a variety of titles on Xbox Live in the coming weeks. While deals for fighting games are a bit slim this time around, Iron Galaxy Studios’ recent Darkstalkers Resurrection release will be available for only 800 MSP, a 33% drop from its original price.

This sale is set to begin next Tuesday, May 28, and will last through June 3. If you were looking to pick the title up but wanted to wait for a discount, this would be the perfect opportunity to check it out.

    they should have sold it for 5 bucks from the getgo and added more content to the game as well. its not like they are making anything new, the work was already done in the 90’s.

      It probably cost way more money than you would think. Outrageously so.

      lol just in the company I worked a good 15-20 of us were working on QA testing for a couple of months. So that’s… ($10 * 8hrs * 7 days * 8 weeks * 15 or 20 people) that’s $67200 – $89600.

      Of course third party testing companies get paid maybe $20+ per hour per tester but only pay tester’s less than half of that, so just go ahead and double those numbers.

      Again we’re just a single location of this 3rd party testing company, they send this project out world wide to be tested for connection stress test. Then they had all other costs goes into making a game.

      I don’t know how many copies this game might have sold, but it is fairly niche so I doubt that many. I’m confident that at $5 a game it would be a loss, hell online passes go for $10 these days, and that’s essentially what you feel you are paying for

    Oh Playstation Plus members will get a 30% discount ($10.49) along with a free Super Puzzle Fighter 2


    Sorry regular playstation gamers

    It’s a good deal IMO. Darkstalkers 3 is an amazing fighter and the addition of Night Warriors is cool. The netcode is solid and the in-game video uploads are very neat.

    Anyone who says this game should’ve been sold for 5 bucks has no real grasp on how much things cost. Porting, localization, QA, and marketing ain’t cheap business.

    I’ve been noticing this for awhile now, but does some one go around giving every single comment a dislike? I remember there was a article once with over 100 comments and every single one had at least one dislike

    Sure Capcom, I’ll bite. Only for Puzzle Fighter HD
