    This game isn’t even finished! Bad form SNK. Bad form.


    how is the game?

  • Drunk Ste

    I’m constantly getting “807b01f4″ errors when I browse the market place. When this happens any DLC that I’ve paid for wants to charge me again if I try to download it. I’ve been getting similar errors intermittently ever since the maintenance.

  • MeS FEAR

    yea there are always error messages all the time…sometimes it kickes me out of a content and didnt let me buy it…i think ms has to fix a lot cuz the maintenance destroyed a lot

  • noddegamra uk

    I’m looking forward to trying this game out.

  • Jo3y Ban3s

    Anyone being “locked” out (greyed out option and or points deducted by dlc and or live arcade and yet still showing as trial or not purchased) delete said content from your drive, and then go into your account management menu (here’s where mileage seems to vary as this has worked for me twice now but only once for a friend) and check your download history IF a lisiting/license (what you will call it) is there for w/e dlc or arcade game you bought but got that error code on is there, just choose to re-download it.Otherwise A call to MS? Happened to me for this game and a Saint’s Row 2 DLC pack

  • Jo3y Ban3s

    Pardon a few errors in my previous comments gents and ladies, It’s 6 am and I had a rude wake up call. Otherwise good game, online play was smooth for me in 7/8 matches :) and only 800 ms points :)

    Great news, people. This has the arranged soundtrack, as in the CD audio type. Sounds a lot better than the standard cart.


    Im scared to use my points at the moment with all the errors being reported. Yesterday the recover gamerta option was having alot of issues.

  • krisxx

    I used to love this game way back, but glad I got the trial….I can not get into SNK fighters anymore, it sucks. SF4 and MvC2 have spoilied me…oh well.

  • Misaki Ki

    Glitchy marketplace got me. I’ll have to wait till it’s fixed to play. >.<;

  • TaygetaVendetta

    KOF98 is one of my favorite games of all time and it pains me to see the XBLA version so broken. The online play barely even works. This shames the XBLA service as a whole, letting such horrible things pass through quality control. BlazBlue and Street Fighter 2 HD Remix both have wonderful netcode and online play, why not use one of theirs or make one comparable to them?

  • programad

    I bought it by mistake.

    I didn’t wanted, but the slow and buggy marketplace made me press A at the “BUY” option. :-(

  • AD1994

    There is a issue with the Xbox 360 LIVE Marketplace the message says Can’t retrieve information from Xbox LIVE.

    Please try again later.

    Status code: 807b01f4

    Does anybody else get this same error message.

  • AD1994

    Fix the Marketplace asap

  • Firecrest

    I love SNK’s Engrish descriptions, lol.

    And I’ve been experiencing some intermittent issues w/ the XBL/xbox.com marketplace and RB2’s store following the recent server maintenance. Just wondering if it’s related.

  • Shonk

    Is this the dodgy neogeo emulator that all the other neogeo stuff uses?

    if it is im not gona bother

  • Luminaria

    AD1994, I’ve been getting that error message ever since the maintenance that was performed on xbox live.

  • modemman11

    yeah, the marketplace is horrible right now. i can’t download anything via xbox.com without getting “page not found” errors, and on the console, i almost always get messages telling me that info can’t be retreived, and my download hsitory is completely forgotton at times.

  • modemman11

    BTW, my problem has been going on for almost a week now. I think it started with that last period of 24 hour maintenance.

  • Chux

    What the hell @ this game. Half of it isn’t translated from Japanese. GG XBLA Certification.

  • Makavelo

    i was going to buy this and GAROU but both looked horrible on my TV and the controls feel horrible as well, waiting for MvC2
