Reader Discussion: Do You Prefer Sequels Or Large Updates?

by Kyle Hilliard on Dec 14, 2013 at 01:36 PM

Street Fighter IV released back in 2009, but a new version of the game is coming in August with Ultra Street Fighter IV. Would you rather be playing Street Fighter V at this point?

Street Fighter IV's model of adding lots of new content and major tweaks for subsequent re-releases isn't a common one. Typically, with popular franchises comparable to Street Fighter, sequels are developed as opposed to re-releases with new content. Which model do you prefer? Would you rather your favorite games get re-releases and reasonably priced DLC add-ons? Or do you prefer it when a developer begins work on the sequel, instead of continuing to work on the game that has already released? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
