Street Fighter X Tekken on Xbox 360 could have had Master Chief and Marcus Fenix

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 24, 2012 at 3:51 p.m. PST
Street Fighter X Tekken on Xbox 360 could have had Master Chief and Marcus Fenix The Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter X Tekken will not be getting any exclusive characters, but they could have potentially picked up Master Chief (Halo) and Marcus Fenix (Gears of War), if negotiations were successful with Microsoft.

Street Fighter series producer, Yoshinori Ono, had this to say on the subject.

"We do have the exclusive characters for the Sony platform. We have Cole, the two Sony cats, Kuro and Toro. But basically for the Xbox 360, we were in discussions with them (Microsoft) for which character to put in as an exclusive, but we weren't able to decide on a character because of differences in timing and things like that. So unfortunately for Street Fighter X Tekken, only the PlayStation family will be getting the exclusive characters, but it's something we wish could have happened. It's just too bad, basically.

"In terms of characters we wish we could have put in the game, Master Chief or Marcus Fenix from Gears of War would have been really cool, but it was just really difficult. We have Cole from inFamous on PS3, which is really cool, but that's just the way it turned out."

From Xbox 360 Achievements via SRK. Tip submitted by Murdoink, Final Fight x Tekken, Chameleonice, Rafael2487 and Sinisterslam.

that would have made my view of sfxt as completely alien, as apposed to semi-alien view I have for it now.

In my eyes the two sony cats just looked like tacked on characters anyway. And cole isnt anything special either.
The games cast is already pretty robust as it is.

NoizyChild said on January 24, 2012 at 3:54 p.m.

Oh well. No use crying over spilled milk.

People will still enjoy the game regardless.

Just play.

ButterKnife said on January 24, 2012 at 3:55 p.m.

I would have used Master Chief... As long as his moves were a little more inspired than in DoA4.

Still getting it for Xbox though.

danchan29 said on January 24, 2012 at 3:56 p.m.

to be honest if x box did have bonus characters, what will happen in evo if for example one player chooses Cole and another uses an 360 bonus character? (My guess they probably be not allowed to be used)

I'm picturing Marcus Fenix as a grappler, but only because of those damn muscles haha.

#9
suicidali said on January 24, 2012 at 3:57 p.m.

Wouldn't Fenix be a bit more Mortal Kombat than SFxT? What with ripping aliens apart with that chainsaw gun of his...
It would've been nice to see how they'd work as fighting game characters, but I guess we'll never know

triplefierce said on January 24, 2012 at 3:57 p.m.

Im definitely going with the 360 copy! I prefer my copy SF x Tekken to only have characters from either Street Fighter or Tekken! great news imo.

#11
Oroku_Saki said on January 24, 2012 at 3:57 p.m.

I would have disliked it. It's the same way Mortal Kombat wanted Master Chief or Dom from Gears of War. I happy enough with the Spartan in Dead or Alive, I wouldn't like to have MC in a Capcom fighter.

Marcus in a Capcom game....I wonder if he would have played like Sharon in the EX series. Anyway, I'm happy those characters didn't get added to the X360 roster.

I'm 360 user, and i'm glad about this !
I simply hate additional characters which does not belongs to the original game univers, as Starwars caracters in Soulcalibur IV ... it's just nonsense !
If they wish to add caracters , just pick up from SF or Tekken !

DeathQuote44 said on January 24, 2012 at 4:05 p.m.

Come on! Even as a PS3 owner, THOSE characters are much cooler than Cole! I would've loved to seen them in this game!

I have NO disrespect toward Xbox, in fact I PREFER Xbox's online to Playstation's. This really pisses me off.

#21
Ninjanuity said on January 24, 2012 at 4:11 p.m.

Who cares. They'll be banned in tournaments and it's not going to be the reason why I buy the game.

And guys, if you're not gonna buy the game, then don't. But don't say a game is horrible before it even gets released. How can you base an opinion on a game when you haven't even played it? We don't need to hear all this angst towards this game.

rlt4life said on January 24, 2012 at 4:14 p.m.

360 exclusive characters don't really fit in a fighting game anyways. No skin off my bones. Cole doesn't exactly fit either, but he does so way more than Marcus or Master Chief could

#24
onostolemybike said on January 24, 2012 at 4:16 p.m.

i'm glad the xbox version has no exclusive characters

I consider it the unraped and unmolested version

exclusive characters end up tourney banned anyway, so whats the point?

#25
Bibuki said on January 24, 2012 at 4:19 p.m.

Seriously I'm down with the wackiness of the game, but it's already wacky enough. No need for unrelated characters in my opinion. I WOULD have been hyped for the Cole Train though. I mean Sony got their Cole, Microsoft got theirs. I'd have mained Cole Train and Balrog and bullied errbody. Not enough Black characters... again. And most of the asian characters look white haha whatever.

#13
I doubt Cole will be available in serious tourneys.

If only Capcom would drop GFWL and put Steamworks in the pc versie.
Then we could have TF2 characters or some other steam relate stuff a portal stage. If only they use steamworks.

I would hate to fight those short cats online anyway... seriously, their hitbox must be so damn awkward.

I love how X-Box users think they're getting the "Pure" version lol. You'll still be fighting PAC-MAN and BAD BOX ART MEGA MAN LMFAO!

Btw, Cole actually looks pretty slick. I'll have fun beating Arcade with him. More bang for your buck IMO.

DunnDeal said on January 24, 2012 at 5:05 p.m.

Who cares that PS3 only got exclusive? XBOX users don't give a damn about Cole and definitely those little furry things. It will feel more like SFxT without them in it.

Console exclusive = a meer toy. Nothing we'll use literally anyway. Maybe fun combo video's and online, but they'll be banned from tournaments which is where the entire hype of the fighting game industry comes from. Which is why it's fair for us to be extremely spectacle on lolgems.

Im kinda mad we didnt get anyone but hey im gettin the game regardless. I wasnt getting it just cuz of the 3 chars.

@49 I think that was just for the PS Vita version of the game

jelaninoel said on January 24, 2012 at 5:18 p.m.

Hey if I'm paying $65 bucks for the game, you better believe i'm buying the one with more characters in it regardless if i think they are cool or not. People saying the characters are dumb or dont belong etc. are clearly butt hurt. There is no way to justify buying the inferior version besides friends buying it as well or lack of PS3 arcade stick. Its 2012, how do people still not own both consoles?

And i still think the best guest character in a fighter is link in sc. Of course is cause im a zelda fan.. :p though for some reason im not digging exclusive characters for capcom fighters. It just always has me thinking the what if they put this character i want instead of a guest.

#66
theshredder39 said on January 24, 2012 at 5:33 p.m.

eh, i grew a strong disliking for Halo anyway, Fenix would've been cool though, but i wish they'd do what they did with the PS3 version where two of the exclusives were very obscure cartoony looking cats and one much more serious character but for the 360 version we could have Banjo and Conker as the cartoony looking characters and the third character could be Master Cheif and Marcus

#67
gammabolt17 said on January 24, 2012 at 5:35 p.m.

As a 360-only owner (not happy about that at all, btw) I can honestly say I don't even know what 360-exclusive character would work in SF anyway. I mean, a gear would work in MK because Jax is damn near a gear himself (probably what Cole would be like without the steroid-jacked-upedness), but they wouldn't really fit right. Fable guy doesn't work. A Spartan (or any other Halo character) doesn't work. I guess Joanna Dark would be a decent Nina counter, but honestly I think I'm about the only person who would give a damn if she was announced. Maybe one of the kids from Infinite Discovery or Magna Carta 2 or something.

Who cares. 99.99% of people buying this game will be for SF or tekken characters.

The posters claiming the ps3 gamers will be bombarded with losses to small cats and cole, please stop as that statement is redundant. I highly doubt they'll be seen.

I'd give them a month, maybe even two if im being generous, of the honeymoon period of trolling to end, even then it will be one or two guys creasing up at the salty elitist's expense.

LongSky said on January 24, 2012 at 6:33 p.m.

OK, so getting the PS3 ver means its been raped and is unclean just because it has extra characters? While getting the 360 with bonus characters means its the pure and clean ver? Jeez, so many of you are so ignorant that its laughable. Hell TxSf might get a Naruto character because of the collaboration with Lars in Ultimate Ninja, and will definitely be given some/alot rage just because "Its not pure". Its a crossover game, meaning its suppose to put in new and unique characters.

#93
Aluppoj said on January 24, 2012 at 6:33 p.m.

Are you kidding? I (we) don't want to "rub anything in your face". People started trashing PS3 like Sony/PS3 did somthing wrong by putting cole is in SFxT.

Capcom seems to have done the asking. Blame them and Microsoft.

Like its a Trash version because it has more content. Whatever guys.

I like how a chunk of you talk like you go to tournaments when I am willing to bet maybe five people who posted on this thread actually have been in one and maybe only three of you give a crap.

That out of the way I do feel sorry for 360 users they will not have as much content due to negotiations not going through fast enough. Which is why they are not in the game. Seriously people the story says that. Try reading instead of assuming capcom is being mean to the console. And yes it would be harder to get a character Microsoft owns since it is an American company and this game is not exclusive to 360.

Also what is with all you idiots and the flame war BS. I am lucky to own all three(I bought the ps3 and wii on my own and was lucky and found a 360 and the gabage works fine) it's all about preference. All three systems have their weak and strong points. And honestly the PS3's internet connection is the same speed as 360. The only reason a game on one may have better connection then the other is because of netcode. If one versions netcode is bunk it will be worse then the other. But seriously the console war stuff is dumb. ust play the games on the system you like and know not everyone shares the same opinion as you and stop acting like a child.

One final note to the people complaining about guest characters in general, why do you take a game with two groups of cartoon characters hitting each other seriously? It's just a game if you don't like a character don't play them. That is what I do.

mavfan619 said on January 24, 2012 at 6:46 p.m.

Halo and GoW are part of the decline of original games being released everything that sells is a shooter now. Screw them and their steroid rage characters. Troll etc... Anger and such.

#97
drunkendan said on January 24, 2012 at 6:48 p.m.

and in the 90s the every game was platformers. Every know and then there will be a game genre that will dominate. Also GOW isn't an fps. It's a 3rd person shooter
