This is my worst fighting game but i love it, this is a game that i must have if anyone come across a cab please let me know. Ive also heard through the grapevine that marvel vs capcom 2 is dropping on the playstation network. Could just be a rumor though.

there's nothing confirm for the PSN or 360 live yet. Your best bet is Ebay it man and see if you can pick if up for less than 200

I have been looking a bit, they are a bit expensive for me right now. Im looking to get a mvs 4 slot or a street fighter super turbo in jan.
Phil ver0 - November 29, 2008 05:35 PM (GMT)
Turbo is damn near impossible to get for a good price. If you feel like spending 200 dollars just get the board at Coin-Express to make life easy on you.
4 slot for a good price is easy to find. Now a 6 slot is another question.

Ive seen different prices for the super turbo ive seen decent cabs for around $600, lol ive even seen busted cabs around $700. Whats the going rate for MVS carts? I will be looking for a KoF, metal slug, Sam sho, and bust a move, maybe even a fatal fury.

If you go to Namco's website HERE
, they have some MvC machines going for $99, and some MvC2 machines for about $375. Make sure to call the places they have them listed at to actually be sure they have them though. They're pretty sluggish when it comes to updating that page.

I played Marvel Vs Capcom 2 regularly in the arcade back in 2000 and again just recently in a retro arcade in London. I still have my DC copy together with 2 arcade sticks! :lol:
Unfortunately when MVC2 arrived in my arcade, the regulars of MVC1 didn't play it. I put it down to the fact the game engine was different and the playprice was double that of MVC: no-one wanted to invest the money to master it. Also the cabinet screen was broken, making the game look terrible. To put it in perspective, my DC copy being played through a black & white TV looked much better! I loved MVC2 but unfortunately it marked the beginning of the end of our local fighting game scene.

I am trying to switch my MvC1 out with a 2, I've had a lot of people ask for 2 so I've been hopeful that it will do better (to put it in perspective, KOF98 usually does better than my MvC, SF2 did as well when it worked). The cab I have for it though is pretty nice so I think that people will enjoy it. I honestly have never played MvC2 however.

The reason people prefer MvC2 over the first is because of the game balance. MvC2 still has some broken characters but compared to the first not as many, which is the reason it is still and probably always will be a internationaly played tournament fighting game. I would almost certaintly switch the two, based off of what i have experienced with out north american market.

Shaggy, how much would you sell the MvC board for?:P
(You can hook that up to any regular Jamma board, right?)
Shaggy - June 14, 2009 03:52 AM (GMT)
I would only sell it if I could for sure get an MvC2. :) Then I am not sure, I'd have to see how much they are going for and find a balance.
I am selling a Carnevil, a Mars Matrix and a Movie Stop though. :)
