Capcom blames fighting game market saturation for Street Fighter X Tekken's sluggish sales

Capcom blames fighting game market saturation for Street Fighter X Tekken's sluggish sales In a message to their investors, Capcom stated that one of the reasons they felt Street Fighter X Tekken's sales fell short of the 2 million mark is because of cannibalism of the fighting game genre, with too many games launched in a short period of time.

Their statement read:

How do you assess the performance of titles that were introduced in the fourth quarter of the previous fiscal year?

Sales of "Street Fighter X Tekken" have fallen short of our plan. We believe one of causes is cannibalism because of the large number of other games in this genre that were launched within a short time.

Despite Street Fighter X Tekken moving 1.4 million copies, Capcom said sales of the title lagged, as it didn't live up to the initial projections for the Xbox 360 and PS3 releases.

Do you feel Capcom's assessment is accurate here? Do you think the fighting game genre is over saturated at the moment? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

On-disc DLC: Capcom re-evaluating how game content is delivered in the future

On-disc DLC: Capcom re-evaluating how game content is delivered in the future In a recent post on the Ask Capcom forums, Christian Svensson noted that Capcom is re-evaluating how they deliver additional game content, specifically as it relates to on-disc DLC.

He also mentioned that with games that began development some time ago, that they would not be able to make the changes to their additional content, such as Dragon's Dogma.

Hey guys,

We've been getting several questions, here and elsewhere about the future of on-disc DLC. We would like to assure you that we have been listening to your comments and as such have begun the process of re-evaluating how such additional game content is delivered in the future. As this process has only just commenced in the past month or so, there will be some titles, where development began some time ago and that are scheduled for release in the coming months, for which we are unable to make changes to the way some of their post release content is delivered.

One such title is Dragon’s Dogma, where the decision to include some additional (but not all planned additional) game content for the game on disc was made at the beginning of the game’s development cycle as at the time this was determined to be the most efficient way of ensuring certain content was made available. Owners of Dragon’s Dogma will be able to further their gameplay experience with the release of additional quests, weapons and other items in the months following the game going on sale.

Justin Wong: In my opinion Street Fighter 4 will be the biggest game for the future

EG|ChocoBlanka uploaded a video where EG|Justin Wong and EG|Momochi have a "gaming conversation," Justin is asked various questions including why he plays certain characters, how much time he spends playing, what his favorite game is right now and many more.

When he is asked about what the future mainstream game will be, he said that in his opinion it will always be Street Fighter 4, because anyone can win, and in the big tournaments the results are always different. He adds that it's very easy for people who don't understand fighting games to understand the slower pace of that title.

Feedback from the community being pursued for Street Fighter X Tekken, sent to producer

Feedback from the community being pursued for Street Fighter X Tekken, sent to producer The community's feedback on Street Fighter X Tekken is being checked out by Capcom UK's SFxT community manager, David "Dawgtanian" Hinds, and sent back to the title's producer, Tomoaki Ayano, he said recently here on the comments area of EventHubs.

Dawgtanian added that he's been doing a lot of research into what can be done to improve the title, and he praised the comments left on a recent story, which are over 140 in total, for offering good insight.

Just wanted to give you guys a minor update from my end, I've been conducting a lot of research into what can be done to make this game more enjoyable for everyone, and pursuing feedback from the community for the last month or two. This has been sent over to Ayano-san and he seems really keen to fulfill the fans requests as much as realistically possible.

Please keep up the constructive feedback, so far this thread of comments has been the most insightful.

Lastly, for those requesting Pandora's duration to be increased, that's what the Pandora Extend gem is for, I'm surprised to not see this becoming the firm favourite as it certainly adds excitement.

If you have helpful and constructive feedback, make sure you hit your favorite social channels, whether it's here on the comments, forums, Twitter or some other avenue and let Capcom know how they can improve Street Fighter X Tekken.
