Desk crashes two Xbox 360s online with Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Dr. Doom glitch

Desk setup a scenario to crash two Xbox 360s while playing Marvel vs. Capcom 3 online using Doctor Doom's Hidden Missiles glitch. Here's a video showing what he did.

This was basically a proof of concept, to see if was possible to simultaneously lock-up 2 machines at the same time.

Initially, it seemed like this wouldn't work. Firstly, attempting to properly time the single, stacked Hidden missile seemed to be very inconsistent under laggy online conditions. Secondly, for reasons that I can't explain, the game randomly speeds up after around 15 launchers, making the timing even more difficult. Finally, we were actually able to set off 25 Hidden missile launchers at one point and the game showed no signs of crashing (in normal gameplay 20 will lock-up your machine).

Ono has idea for Alpha 3, Sven talks tournament rules, Mega Man

Ono has idea for Alpha 3, Sven talks tournament rules, Mega Man Capcom employees made a few more posts on various social channels. Yoshinori Ono is first up, talking very briefly about Alpha 3, mentioning a Triple Upper version. SFA3 Double Upper, as it's called in Japan, is known as Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX here in North America, so if you take Ono's words at face value, it sounds like he wants to do another iteration of the Alpha 3 series.

Svensson discusses the rules for tournament organizers seeking permission from Capcom to run events, which he covered previously.

I hope in a couple of years, you make Street Fighter Alpha 4 — KingQuaka.

Ono: Ummm, Alpha 4... I have [an] idea for Alpha 3 ↑↑↑ Triple upper! :P

Would I require official license to run a tournament for a Asian New Years celebration? Every year the Hmong do a New Years celebration around October - November depending on the area you live in.

I have been planning for years to start doing video game tournaments as part of the entertainment they have at the Hmong New Years since they always have sport tournaments why not a video game tournament. We will be charging competitors an entry fee but all the money from the entry fee will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

Me and the people helping gain nothing from the tournament. So would I still have to acquire a official lincense? — Houa


Svensson: From what you've described, the odds are you'll be OK Houa.

Christian Svensson and Seth Killian also went over Mega Man's popularity, which doesn't directly deal with fighting games, it's more about the core titles from that franchise, but considering he was a very popular suggestion for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, this might shine a little light on the scenario. Hit the jump to check that out.
