Tekken Revolution thoughts

So I just got Tekken Revolution on PSN and gave it a quick run. Here are some impressions after about an hour of play. The playable characters were Paul, Law, Jack-6, King, Lars, Lili, Kazuya, Asuka. On top of them I fought Steve, Alisa, Ogre, Jinpachi, Bryan and Leo in arcade mode. You can have as many as two “arcade tokens” at a time to play arcade mode. These token replenish at a rate of 1 per hour. I went through arcade mode with King and Lars first to get a feel of the game. Although I haven’t picked it up in a few months, it appears to be 1v1 TTT2. The only noticeable difference to me was that some attacks had this motion blur to them. Jinpachi appears to be the sub-boss and ogre the final boss. No endings just a “game over” screen with artwork in the back. So I went through my two arcade tokens within 30 minutes of starting up the game so I went into online play. You have a maximum of 5 “battle tokens” you can use for either ranked or player battle that respawn at a rate of 1 every 30 minutes. If you win a ranked match you will get another battle token. I can’t recall if that holds true for player battle as well. I lost both matches as none of the available characters were my mains in TTT2. Money comes into the picture with premium tokens, which I think can be used as either arcade or battle tokens and can have a max of 999. Cheapest is 4 for $1 and the most is 30 for $5. There is a middle tier in there for $2 that gets you 10. There are some bonus things that popped up since I got the game the first day or something, but I didn’t pay it much mind. In arcade mode there is a gift box icon which I think is how you get new characters, but I didn’t see exactly how I could exchange my gift tickets for it through. There is no training mode from what I saw and I didn’t want to commit to the stat building right now as I really want to stick with Steve or see if Armor King is going to pop up soon. There is no training mode from what I saw, but you can pause the game in arcade mode and look up the move list. Nor is there any offline versus play. So from the looks of it, Namco is trying to recreate the arcade experience on the home console and to tell you the truth I was thinking about a similar business model myself, but I would have made arcade mode free play. But as a person who owns TTT2 already, I don’t see any benefits with sticking with Tekken Revolution. Will Tekken X Street Fighter follow if this turns out to be a success? Rage quits would be a waste of your money if it happened to you so I hope they are serious about banning those types of players. I let you know if the tokens respawn even if you aren't playing the game. Now I am just gonna wait for XCOM and Uncharted 3 to finish downloading. I love PS+, please don't change with PS4.
