Just thought you would be interested to know, on the new demo disk in stores, the FULL version of capcom vs snk 2 is on the demo disk!! the two things about this that are lost from the "full" version are online play and game saves.. just thought this was odd this was done, and thought you may want to know. :)

Is the Demo Disc you speak of the one in PSX mag or the $8 "Jampack" that sells at places like Best Buy?

sorry about that..I mean to say the Xbox exhibition disc... was very sleepy, so forgive me please. :b as for 480p, to the best of my knowledge, the answer is no. Not 100% sure though.

I'm pretty sure it is 480p but with this game, what is the difference?
I was amazed how nice the rendered backgrounds were but how bad and blocky the 2D fighters looked.

Anyway, another caveat... You can't play the game with the digital controls. You have to use the right and left triggers and it takes in account the pressure you press (hard for hard punch, etc.)

It is true that the entire game is on there, it just is a little crippled. I happily paid $5 for it.

Yep, it's 480p. On a side note, are we maxxed at this resolution for 2d fighters? I'd love a good 2d fighter that was a little more pleasing to the eyes...

Try Guilty Gear XX... I'm not sure if it's 480p or not, but the characters are displayed in their native resolution, not scaled up like the Capcom fighters. It looks fantastic too.

I can confirm that GGXX is 480p, and it looks spectacularly gorgeous. It's probably the best looking PS2 game out right now. It even has an option to turn anti aliasing off and on.

Huh? I think this depends on the mode you're playing in. In EO mode the face buttons are for crap like run and roll stuff. If you play arcade the face buttons are whatever you set them to (I have all mine as L,M,H punch and kick, as it should be).

I only tried EO mode. The first post on the Xbox newsgroup regarding this demo was that you could only use light punches and kicks. The only way to get full controls was with the EO mode.
I could be wrong.

Now if only Capcom could release a similar demo of Marvel v. Capcom 2, I would be in heaven!

Considering there's no XBL component to the US release of Marvel vs Capcom 2, I doubt they'll give it away as a sample to buy the full thing :)

Boy, are you right about that! I picked it up today, and it's the 2D fighter that I've been waiting for. Great controls+gameplay, fantastic graphics, and no more "isms".

I got this disc a while ago for Capcom vs. SNK 2 and I must say I'm pretty dissapointed in it. Capcom has fallen so far behind the curve in regards to their fighters that they need to just quit or do some serious revamping.

Clunky character movement, a stilted and unbalanced fighting engine, and graphics that fall on the wrong side of ugly. I don't know what they were thinking with the music either. I can't say I spent enough time to master the game, but due to its overall slowness and lack of fluidity, I can't really say I cared to either.

My advice: spend that teeny tiny little extra $35.00 it takes to upgrade to GGXX, if only to be treated to such quotes as "I'll get you, you saucy transformable hair witch!!!!".

I like CvS2, with all the new modes and roll techniques I'm sure it goes much deeper than it first looks. Only thing that I hate, and I mean REALLY hate, is that you can't remap the shoulder buttons. They have to stay what they are, which is all punches and kicks IIRC. That just sucks. :frowning:

Oh and I hear the EO (?) mode is pretty cheap when used by a n00b so I'll agree with you about the system...

Isn't this just a port of the two year old Dreamcast game? I bought the Exhibition disk and played a few times, but the character models were too blocky on a big screen tv. Inexcusable considering the fine 3-D backgrounds.
