SNK 40th Anniversary Collection

Recommended Posts

Thinking of picking up the SNK 40th Anniversary collection, but I'm having trouble finding out if all the games are on the disc or if's like the Switch version where you half to download half. Anyone know? I'd like to have them all on disc to add to my collection, but if only has half the set, I'll probably just buy it digitally.

 

Thanks!

It's not an answer, but speculation here and at another forum I visit is that two games will likely be downloads.

 

The patch that added 11 games to the Switch version only included 9 of them, with the remaining two having to be downloaded off the eShop manually. Some think this was a way to work around the ESRB rating since they're the two bloodiest games in the lineup.

 

I can live with that, but I'll be disappointed if nearly half of the arcade lineup is a download rather than on the disc.

Anyone tried this yet? Trying to find it there's any difference in performance between the PS4 and Switch version, but no luck.

Apparently, the game is enhanced on the PS4 Pro, which I assume just means that the games are playable in 4K.

 

From what I saw on YouTube, the PS4 disc doesn't include all the games. I was considering buying this, but seeing that not all games are included on physical media has changed my mind. There's really no good reason for this, other than them trying to devalue used copies.

The Switch version was the same way. I believe the downloads had a higher (older kids) ESRB rating than the main package, so they could sell the rest of it as E for Everyone.

 

And I see that Atariboy just posted the same thing a few lines prior. I think that's the more likely explanation than "devalue used copies."

I don't really understand what the issue is with ratings, though? It's not like kids are going to be buying these packs to begin with.

Actually, I think the PS4 disc does include all of the games on the disc, so I may get this after all.

 

By the way, was the Switch version originally rated as E? The versions I'm seeing are rated T, the same as the PS4.

 

Anyway, even if the rating played into why some games were not present on the Switch cart, the use of download-only content has been a way for years to try to get people to buy new games. It's nothing new, but it's not something I would expect from a game compilation.

Someone asked on amazon whether any of the games required a download and a customer answered that everything is on the disc.

To add to that, I briefly watched a YouTube review and he said all the games were on the disc.
