Sven: PC version of Super Street Fighter 4 not in development right now Capcom's Christian Svensson stated that a PC version of Super Street Fighter 4 is not in development right now, via the Unity Boards.
How come a Game For Windows Live logo got on this piece of concept art for SSF4? Does this mean a PC port is in the works?

Sven: I really don't want hopes getting unreasonably raised only to be dashed.

I'm one of the biggest proponents of a PC version of SSFIV you can think of. While I wish it weren't the case, I can say that it is not currently in development at the moment. Will that change in the future? Depends on a lot of things, not the least of which is how big a PC forecast I can believably bring to greenlight discussions. If it were to happen, it's no time in the immediate or mid term future.

As far as how that logo got on a concept of our ad, I'm not sure. That I'm going to have to ask the PM and our agency about it.
Does the release of the arcade version of SSF4 increase the chances of a PC version?

Sven: And the Japan arcade version is what I was referring to previously in this thread as a gating factor (and until only a few months ago, there were no plans for an arcade version). If there were no arcade, there would be a much, much slimmer chance at a PC version. You'll also note, I don't believe we've given a timeframe on when arcade will arrive (and even so, arcade is JUST for Japan so there's no confusion).

That said, there is a difference between an arcade version and a consumer released PC version (no upward or downward hardware optimization/compatibility considerations, no online play/GFWL integration, etc.). And as I'd mentioned previously, there is no PC version currently in development. All focus is on arcade.

Are you really THAT interested in getting SSF4 on the PC? Your previous comment about it not being in development was hard to hear.

Sven: For the record guys, no one is pushing for such a project to exist harder than I am. I'm just trying to keep expectations in line.
