It seems like over the past six months or so, Sony has been softening up their fanbase by dropping little hints that long-time exclusives may no longer be theirs. And, while many former Sony exclusives have already jumped ship, it seems like the trend is set to continue with the announcement/confirmation of Tekken 6 coming to Xbox 360 in Fall 2009.
Tekken 6 was released in arcades in Japan late last year and it was expected that the title would eventually make its way to the next-gen console market. Many thought the PS3 was the likely destination and since Tekken has been a rather Sony-friendly franchise in the past, it seemed likely that it would stay that way. Now, while Tekken didn’t make as drastic of a move as other former Sony exclusives and go Xbox-only, this is still a kick in the pants for the PlayStation brand, and yet another great franchise that Microsoft has managed to lure over with their obvious hypnotic powers.
