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."
