Just got news of a huge celebration from Team Ninja involving the celebration of Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters which is a free to play download on PSN. The game has reached over 500,00 downloads and will be receiving for a limited time in-game content on PSN.
While I can easily download the game on my PS3 to get the announced Tecmo Bowl uniforms and other content. I don’t think it’s right that Xbox isn’t getting any love. I mean it’s not gamers fault on Xbox Live that Team Ninja didn’t show XBLA any love with this F2P feature.
Regardless. it’s a good game and a steel to start and play for free. It’s just a shame that things like this happen in the gaming industry when they don’t have too.
You can read the official release and all the details below.
