Version 2012 balance patch for Super Street Fighter 4 AE coming to PC Capcom's Christian Svensson confirmed that the balance patch announced for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition would also be making its way to the PC.

Svensson also talked about other subjects close to the hearts of PC gamers on the Unity Boards, here's the skinny, and hit the jump for more content.
Is the version 2012 balance update for SSF4 AE coming to the PC as well? — Glutenbob

Svensson: Timing may be slightly different and I still have to work this out with the team but we will keep the PC in sync with the console version.

Yoshinori Ono seemed unsure if the AE balance patch would hit PC on his Twitter account, why is that? — Caruga

Svensson: Ono wanted to talk to me first about it since he and I hadn't discussed PC before and the PC SKU has been handled by our office. We spoke about it this morning. Naturally, I'm supportive and we'll make it happen.

Can you talk to us about Street Fighter X Tekken on the PC? Ono wrote yesterday on his Twitter to wait for news about this. Can you say anything? — Shredder

Svensson: It's not green lit yet. We're working on it.
Will there be a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for the PC? — PurpleAkuma

Svensson: It's not currently in the plan or a part of our rights from Marvel.

How come more fighting games aren't released on the PC? Don't they do as well as their console counterparts?

Svensson: To put something in perspective, our historical PC revenues on a given game are about 5-10% of an equivalent title on consoles, even when simultaneously released. We're trying to improve upon that and we are bringing more PC titles to market than ever before, but that doesn't mean every game will come.

How were the PC sales of SSF4 AE? — Darknite

Svensson: I'm not answering because IR has asked me not to answer "sales type questions" in the future in light of my previous answers. My personal expectations were that we would have sold more than we have at this point.

Some OEM deals are in the works though which could help.

Will there be any future patches for the PC release of SSF4 AE? — Caruga

Svensson: There is an additional update coming with a few more fixes, more hardware support, new resolutions to be supported and a couple other odds and ends. I do not have an ETA for you though.
