Fixing the bugs

Tekken 7 Playstation 4


As with just about any new software, games, or somewhat advanced technologies you can always expect there to be a few little bugs here and there that will require a few updates to run a tad more smoothly.

According to Tekken.com on June 7th, just 5 days after the official release date, they began releasing a series of patches for both the PC, XBox One, and Playstation 4 versions of the game to “improve the gamer experience,” particularly to improve the stability of the connection to other players for online gaming.

Online matches are a huge part of the Tekken experience for those dedicated players, so a fast easy patch to fix this issue is of course, the best case scenario here. These patches are scheduled to be completed within a week. Other than the typical, expected bugs, reports from multiple sites appear to rate Tekken 7 very highly.

Tekken 7 tops charts in Japan

Apparently Tekken did exceptionally well in Japan taking the number one spot for game sales for the week. It did so well in Japan that it actually nearly doubled the sales of the runner up in the second slot, “Seiken Densetsu.”

Playstation 4 Controller Tekken 7Gamestop players playing the game on Playstation 4 rated it a 3.6 out of 5 stars, but to be fair, it was only reviewed by about 15 people. IGN gave it a 9.5 out of a scale of up to 10, which is an excellent rating. To sum it up, IGN said, “Tekken 7 is a hallmark fighting game that’s both accessible and highly technical, with great customization options.”
