Rebalancing was originally planned for Street Fighter 3 Online Edition

Rebalancing was originally planned for Street Fighter 3 Online Edition Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition was originally going to be rebalanced, Seth Killian told SiliconEra. Apparently, the budget for the key features they felt had to be included didn't work in conjunction with rebalancing the game, so it was one of the things they cut.

"We had discussed it, actually, somewhat extensively," Seth Killian, Strategic Marketing Director of Online & Community, answered. "The first time I wrote this document for this game was probably, maybe, two and half years ago. When we put together the basic pitch, we did have as part of the potential budget a rebalance. In order to achieve some of the other things I felt were absolutely necessary for the game to be released – budget was going to be an issue, play testing in terms of time, and balancing was going to be an issue.

"Third Strike had over ten years of a competitive history," Killian added. "For anyone who wants to say the game is ridiculous in terms of balance or anything like that – there are very few games that have that kind of history that are actually as bad as they say they are. But, we do understand where they are coming from and it is something we considered."

Fan reaction seems to have been mixed. While some people love that the game won't be rebalanced, others thought it should have been. What do you think? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

Juri BP bug with Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

Juri BP bug with Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Over on Capcom-Unity today they quickly documented a bug that affects Juri players.

Some of you may have noticed an issue with Super Street Fighter IV while using Arcade Edition. In rare instances after upgrading to the Arcade Edition, the class and BP for Juri will be reset to 0. None of the other characters or stats for Juri are affected. We are aware of the problem and are furiously working on a fix. For the Juri fans out there, we recommend not switching to SSFIV balance once upgraded to Arcade Edition. Stay tuned to Capcom Unity for more information.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you guys, and will keep you updated as we find out more.

Vita, PS3 Street Fighter X Tekken visuals 'pretty much identical'

Vita, PS3 Street Fighter X Tekken visuals 'pretty much identical' Capcom's Yoshinori Ono stated that the visuals in the upcoming release of Street Fighter X Tekken on Sony's new portable, the Vita, will closely match those on the PlayStation 3 platform, recently on EuroGamer.

The Vita is reported to have a max 960 x 544 screen resolution, which is a ways below what the PS3 is capable of, but sans this aspect, Yoshinori believes the handheld will stack up well, calling the game a virtual one-to-one match.

"Right now, because we haven't finished tuning and optimizing everything, the frame rate occasionally will stutter," Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono told Eurogamer.

"We're looking to fix that. But the actual visuals themselves, the actual textures and everything, look pretty much identical.

"It's virtually a one-to-one match at this point."

Many sites are also claiming that the game will feature cross platform play with the PS3, although no official word has been made on that end by either Capcom or Sony — there have been hints pointing in that direction, stating the game will offer a "new experience" and that it would allow gamers to utilize the "PlayStation family connected together."

Alternative costume DLC for the SSF4 Arcade Edition characters soon? — ARXIN

Ono: Maybe it release after [the retail] disc version's release soon. ;D Could be wait.

The disc release for SSF4 AE is June 24, 2011 for Europe, 28th in North America, 30th in Japan, so it sounds like the earliest we see the new outfits for these guys is in July.

You ask, Daigo Umehara answers, part 2

You ask, Daigo Umehara answers, part 2 Part 2 of Capcom-Unity's question and answer session with MCZ|Daigo Umehara is up now.

Topics cover what The Beast is thinking after a win/loss in a tournament, what the US and Japanese communities can do to improve, what he'd like to see from future competitions and things of that nature. Here's a grab to get you started.

What is one thing you feel that the American community needs to take from Japan in order to improve itself? And, vice versa, what is one thing that Japan should take from America to improve itself? -- Tryken (Ryan)

Daigo: I don’t really know how US players relate among themselves, so I can’t say much, but if I may based on little I know, I think US players should openly and constructively criticize one another on their gameplay and help each other to improve themselves as a community as a whole.

On the Japan side, the Japanese community obviously lacks a sense of responsibility and spirit to try to make an event a success. The players don’t recognize it as “their” event and don’t even make an effort to boost it up. They just passively participate in a tournament, and they think that they have nothing to do with it, but that it is the event organizer’s responsibility whether it becomes fun or not. I hope to see a change in their perspective and to come together as a community to “create” an event.
