Downloadables confirmed for Street Fighter 4 console release Not to be outdone by 1UP.com, GameSpy has posted their own interview with Yoshinori Ono.


He reveals that downloadable content is confirmed for the console releases of the game, and explains some of the reasoning behind not making characters available in this way, along with a few other topics.

Good read, here's a clip.
GameSpy: But given that it will be on consoles in a big way, can we expect much in the way of post-release content? Like characters, stages, musical arrangements?

Yoshinori Ono: Going back to the chess analogy, characters [in fighting games] are like rules, and you have to master the rules to enjoy them too. So while we are working on downloadable content, characters will not be downloadable. We don't necessarily want to increase the complexity of the rules. And also, I think it's a little bit unfair that those guys with a bit more money will have more characters. But yes, we are working on some downloadable content.
