PostSubject: Capcom disappointed over Street Fighter X Tekken DLC Hacking   Sat Apr 21, 2012 4:51 pm

Capcom has spoken out on the now infamous affair involving those locked DLC characters on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Street Fighter X Tekken. The producer for the game has spoken of his disappointment after seeing the characters unlocked by hacking on the Xbox 360 version of the game.

For those of you that still aren’t aware what happened – here’s a brief recap. The game shipped with 12 locked characters on console that Capcom originally planned to make exclusive to the PS Vita version of the game. After Xbox 360 users hacked the game and unlocked the characters, Capcom has now come clean and announced that PS3 and 360 owners will have to pay $20 to play with the characters when they release officially later this year.

A lot of people are not too happy with Capcom for locking away content on the disc that they paid full price for as you can imagine, and now producer Tomoaki Ayano has revealed that he is ‘pretty disappointed’ that Xbox 360 players have found a way to hack the game, even using these locked characters in online ranked matches against legit Xbox 360 players as a further kick in the teeth.

Ayano has spoke about this in an interview with GameSpot, saying that he was also a bit ‘surprised’ at the level of skill that these hackers have in being able to unlock the characters in this way. Disappointment is the key word mentioned several times by the man though, but would you argue that the company brought it on themselves?

If they didn’t lock the content away in the first place, there would have been nothing to hack. We suppose they may have felt that they needed to adopt a different DLC strategy after fans didn’t particularly like the various ‘ultimate’ editions of games that they keep bringing out.

Capcom are disappointed that their game has been hacked, but are you disappointed that the company are not treating their customers with respect? You can bet that they won’t be pulling similar stunts with future games from now on – or will they?

Beautiful.

This is when hacking is just. The cheek of capcom to charge $20 for characters already on the disc.

Serves you right Capcom. Next time either keep them off of the disk if you want them for DLC, or if you put them on our disk, make them available. It's bullshit that we have to pay for stuff on our disk.

Disappointed? I can see how they would be. But if they're shocked, then that is disappointing in and of itself …

I am disappointed in capcoms disappointment in this disappointing episode of this disappointing game.


Thirty years ago, our homeworld was swept away in a tide of so called justice. Millions of men, women and children lost their lives. But some of us, refused to lay down and die. Some of us, refused to accept your shallow plea for forgiveness. We are the generation forged in the fires. And this, is our day.

It wouldn't matter if your 'DLC' was actually what the name says...

Well, this stuff is going to happen when you charge bullshit DLC for characters that are already on the fucking disc. Screw you Capcom.
