    Sweet! I suppose I could buy Guilty Gear XX Accent Core for the PSN…

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    I REALLY wish this had lobbies. I’m really liking playing Accent Core Plus on the PSN, but without lobbies, it is really hard to convince my friends to get it too.

    EDIT: Just read the Facebook post. Not sure why the article doesn’t mention it, since it is one of the most important features of a fighting game, but yes, they ARE patching in lobbies! I guess they’ll probably pick it up whenever they do that.

    I hope they will greatly improve the netcode, because so far it’s a disaster.

  • jugun
