They had trouble selling them on the PS2/Wii @ $29.99 then $19.99, that was a 5 pack anthology, heck even the KOF98 Ultimate Match on the PS2 has trouble selling at $19.99 and it's a Naomi update of the most popular KOF game.

Maybe the older KOF games don't sell well because anyone who wants them can get them *illegally* via emulation, but still, even the Atomiswave *unemulated* SNK games don't sell well at 1/2 to 1/3rd the price...
If anything, I think the emulating crowd is the only group of gamers who knows about KoF, and they already have them all. They don't emulate knowing KoF, but they know KoF because they emulate.
Anyways, SNK is ripping gamers off for selling at any price higher than dirt cheap - they're trying to make money on 10+ year old games. The new games are obvious exceptions - but they're also (supposedly) not as good as the older ones.

:lol:

KoF sales always reek. They do better in arcades then console sales. And most KoF players I know like to play the classics. They aren't too interested in the latest ones.
Definitely not because they can play the old ones for free though.

half of the newer ones too....
Well, technically they can play all the new ones for free if they really wanted to since they're basically all on PS2 (unless PCSX2 isn't playing them well yet). But arcade emulation is just so damn easy.
