Is more local play!
Where are the groups that meet up monthly or even biweeekly to play the game?
If you know one, post about it here NOW!
But really, all it takes is a TV, a PS3, PlayStation All Stars Battel Royale and some controllers and it's a night of fun!
There are bunches of places you can play, if you aren't comfortable hosting in your home, everywhere from libraries, community centers, gaming stores, and even schools! (Seriously, how cool would it be to be the President of the PSASBR Club?)
A simple double elimination bracket is all it takes, or if you have a really small group, pull out a round robin!
Get live streams going, get these events up online! There doesn't have to be a huge prize to get a few good local players to come in and play with friends.
But seriously, why haven't you started a local PSASBR deal yet?
Am not.pointing people out but I know people do it, no one can say that metal gear rising (a brand new franchise) is more popular then say bioshock or infamous
Cyborg ninjas are just awesome. In any context. Even if they're baking cookies!
But back on topic, I totally agree with OP. I think there would be a lot less complaining and cries for nerfs/patches if we could have a few streams to validate information for everyone.
I'm sure if high level play of Marvel vs Capcom 3 weren't streamed so much, people would think that killing a character in one combo is a bug or a glitch or something, and that timeouts were common place.
