Hey Prof, are you familiar with this fine upcoming title?
Merkava and Waldstein rock.
ANYWAY, I have a question for you, as a "man on the ground", so to speak. It comes out this month (the 20th, allegedly) and I've been totally unable to confirm if the ringedge 2 is network only or not (heck, I haven't seen any for sale yet, but I think it isn't out quite yet either?) Either way, if you get a chance to take a look at it when it comes out or just confirm/deny that the Ringedge 2 is a network oriented motherboard (which would render me buying one meaningless) I'd appreciate it.
This is sort of a tricky question but the shorthand answer would be "don't bother".
Here's the lowdown.
The Ringedge2 has actually been out since last November and it's just a standalone PC-based arcade board. However the thing is, Undernight In-birth is going to be the debut title for an add-on network system for the Ringedge2, called "ALL.Net P-ras MULTI". It'll only be playable through network.
Basically, think of it as the relationship between the TypeX2 board and the NesicaLive network system. The P-ras Multi is Sega's version of it (albeit a lot crappier when it comes down to its small details).
