PC Street Fighter X Tekken DLC character news likely by the end of the week, CvS2 port a couple months off

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 31, 2013 at 6:25 p.m. PST
PC Street Fighter X Tekken DLC character news likely by the end of the week, CvS2 port a couple months off PC gamers hoping for news about the DLC characters in Street Fighter X Tekken shouldn't have to wait long, as Capcom's Christian Svensson said news is likely to be out before the end of the week, and they'd have some good things to share about the price point they'd be offered at, too.

He also delved into the PS2 re-release of Capcom vs SNK 2 saying it's a couple of months off, but it's cleared some channels in regards to emulation testing, and the digital sales team is working on locking down a date.

Here's a transcript of notable details from the live Ask Capcom session that was held today, hit the jump to check out the video archive.

• Svensson apologized for the very long delay on the PC Street Fighter X Tekken patches. He said the character DLC update should be out by the end of this week, and a significant short term price point will be available as well. Details will be announced soon.

• The digital survey was "hugely successful from my stand point," Svensson said. There were over 64,000 respondents in six days. There was some very good feedback that was actionable, but he didn't elaborate on what this pertains to. Results from the survey are being shared pretty broadly with senior management and are being factored in to product planning for the digital market.

• When asked about updates to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 — which came up constantly throughout the session — the guys said, "It kills us to not be able to talk about some things. Trust me, we know you want to know answers, and there's things we'd love to tell you, but... " they have rules they have to abide by. They didn't confirm anything one way or the other, they're simply saying that they wish they could share details, but they cannot because of the rules in place.

• The Capcom vs. SNK 2 re-release of the PS2 version is a couple of months off, as the digital sales team is trying to secure a date. The good news is it has passed a few channels at SCEA in the emulation testing. It's in the process of being worked on for North and South America. This is a straight port of the PS2 version.

what the hell is the point of this session? He literally cannot say anything apparently.

At this rate, why doesn't he just say what he CAN say? cause apparently that is a very tiny list.

@ #5

Ever read Svensson's responses to fans?

99 % of the time it's "Can't say right now", "No news at the moment", "We shall see" and stuff like that.

And that's when he's trying (hard) not to piss people off.

How to refuse people without offending them.

If it's Harada-san, it would be much simpler.

All I see is Svensson completely ignoring GFWL PC gamers demanding from both Capcom and Microsoft explanations about the buggy DLCs, and talking as if they'd never released them in the first place.

I was still trying to trust Capcom, but after this, even the most die-hard fans would lose hope...

Did anyone ask about AE2013?

Because a "no comment" would basically be a yes. Due to the fact that they had previously stated the series had Finished after AE2012.

@5 @6
Well... by his comment about UMVC3, then I think it's quite possible that the game might receive updates in the future, otherwise he'd have repeated the same "the team moved on to other projects" line.
They're probably in mid negotiations with Marvel in this matter, and little to nothing worth mentioning was decided until now.
Anyway, this is quite different, so I guess UMVC3 fans might have some hope.

Thanks for wasting my money buying your PC games Capcom (sarcasm)

Not sure why I keep doing it too, it's like s cikness, high hopes for Capcom games before release onto PC, then when I play it, it sucks especially SfXT PC gameplay lag. You got people blipping all over landing chain combos. I'm going to try my hardest and no longer buy PC purchases of Capcom games.

Resident Evil 5 gives me motion sickness yet I've played quake 3 for over 10-15 years.

@ #11

If his vag is really full of sand that's precisely because of how Capcom treats PC gamer who long for a decent fighter.

For a second I thought they were porting CvS2 to the PC. :(

You forgot
"No and you're wrong!"

@HyperCombinationFinish #11
I don't even play on PC and understand how unfair the PC crowd are treated.

CvS2 is just a glorified MUGEN game. And yes, I had it and played it for a while on PS2.

Gailim said on February 1, 2013 at 9:46 a.m.

I don't know why PC users would buy DLC for a game with a broken netcode.

PC users have been telling capcom since launch that there was clearly a PC-specific problem with SFxT's netcode. Given the disparate online experience betweeen PC and console. But they wont even acknowledge it, much less fix it.

kenmaster101 said on February 1, 2013 at 10:38 a.m.

NO! READ THE SURVEY GAIN. WE WANT CVS2 ONLINE!!!

#29
Gailim said on February 1, 2013 at 11:05 a.m.

@25 we have a decent fighter. AE is great, no problems at all with it. It works even better on PC than it does on consoles.

We just want another one. It's not unreasonable to expect a game we paid for to at least have online that is on par with the console versions.
