I know this is an old game but I always liked Tekken 5 and Jinpachi. I was thinking of getting this game from PSN for a while now. In the past week or so, I noticed a few changes in PSN when I looked the game up. There were originally two choices - one that was offline which was bare bones and cost $19.99 and the other included online which also included Practice and Survival Modes that was $29.99. Well the $19.99 option disappeared. Not only that, in the description of the PSN game it mentions in short that Namco can stop the online service at anytime. That addition was recent and not in the description about a week to two weeks ago. It also mentions that we can look it up at the namco website. I couldn't find that information.
I collect fighting games and don't want to miss this one. I know Jinpachi is available on PS2 through a cheat device but I don't usually hook that system up as much as I used to. I also know that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will have Jinpachi but his movelist will be different that Tekken 5 or Tekken 5 DR.
I was just curious if anyone had an exact date. My guess is sometime after Tekken Tag Tournament 2 go online. Namco will then need to monitor both this game and Tekken 6 on their servers. Thanks in advance for any information that you can give me.
