Let's acknowledge the sad truth, ladies and gents - Sony's PlayStation 3 stumbled right out the gate and lost a ton of mindshare to Microsoft's Xbox 360. A less-than-stellar launch lineup, a daunting price, and more fanfare afforded to the second Xbox console due to its hot start tripped up the PS3's earliest days during its longtime run. But as time wore on, the PS3 began to amass a ton of amazing first-party games and turned the tide back in its favor as the home console arms race between Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo kept on kicking from the mid-2000s to the early 2010s. Thanks to the fighting game resurgence brought on by the immense success of Capcom's Street Fighter IV, the genre that was once on its deathbed came back strong and led to a ton of amazing fighters coming from established IPs & brand new franchises. Let's take a look back at the 27 best PS3 fighting games and remember all the good times associated with the seventh generation of gaming.
