I tried it out at JB Hi-Fi.
Honestly, I have no incentive to get this. While it's cool that the customization looks more fun and having two characters to play with to deliver awesome combos, the visuals have taken for a nasty turn, and I just felt like I was playing Tekken6 again as I was fighting.
If you're already a Tekken fan, get it. It has the most refined gameplay in the series, one of the best online netcodes (and infrastructures) for any 3D fighting game, and features just about every single character and boss that ever appeared in the series (59, including the all free, DLC). If you've been a fan for a long time, you'll really appreciate all the new content and especially the throwbacks like old stages, themes, and characters that haven't been seen since the PS1 and PS2 days.

If you're just getting into the series, the Fight Lab mode will give you a pretty basic tutorial on the general fighting mechanics, but its gonna take hours of practice mode to get a handle on all of the game's mechanics (which just get more and more complex with each installment), if that's what you're into. The game can still be enjoyed at a "casual" level though and there are more than a handful of characters that require little practice to dish out high damage and easy combos.

There is no "Story Mode" of any kind though (even though T6's was horrible). Every character does have a CGI ending and the quality are usually better than T6's (which again, were horrible), but there is a surprising dearth of Single-Player content, at least compared to say, T5 or T6.

I feel the same way Tekken games 1-5 were Playstation exclusives so whether they put the games on Xbox or Nintendo Tekken was introduced to consoles because Sony gave them the opportunity

I'm just glad its not console exclusive anymore. I used to have the PS2 but I never saw a reason to get the PS3. Friends and me just thought it would be better to get 360's. Lol... I'm just glad Tekken was available for them.
