Continuing from where we left off next week, a closer look at the network modes! Well then, let's get right down to it with the Replay Channel.
First, tell us about how the Replay Channel came to be.
While we were making the PC version for SFIV, we thought "isn't there something we could do with the replays?" Our very first image was of producer Ono coming out of the bath in his bathrobe, with a drink on the rocks in one hand while he watched replays, like something out of a comic book (laughs). The basic idea there is that you wouldn't have to touch the controller. "A drink in one hand, petting a cat with the other", or for us, we'd be gathered around a heated table with some oranges. At any rate, we wanted to make it so that you could watch replays without having to press any buttons.
