Capcom/Microsoft to crack down on Street Fighter X Tekken's DLC hackers, Wii-U direction discussed If you've been hacking your Xbox 360 to play Street Fighter X Tekken's unreleased DLC characters online, it's probably a good idea to stop, as Capcom said they're going to go after users who are doing so, likely getting them banned from Xbox Live.

Christian Svensson talked about what Capcom's offerings on the Wii U will likely be, and he quickly comments on the fake UMvC3X rumor that surfaced a little ways back.

Hit the jump for everything.

Did you see that hackers were using the DLC in Street Fighter X Tekken to play the twelve new characters online ahead of their release?

Svensson: Yes, we're seeing news of this. Quite ballsy for folks to be taking hacked Xbox 360s on Live where they are detectable.

In any event, we already have opened channels of communication with Microsoft on these issues Friday night. If you can capture screens or video of this in action (as some have already) we're working on bans for boxes and accounts with Microsoft for haxxors.

I'll leave this thread open for people to post pics/vids and the like and we'll bring them to MS (as we have the last three that were reported to us).

Will you be offering exclusive content for Wii U owners? — DinoCrisisFanboy

Svensson: We've not announced any Wii U titles yet, so it's impossible for me to answer this definitively.

I can say that we have historically tried to differentiate our offerings on certain titles for specific platforms. When looking at what we've done on 3DS, we've had significant differentiation where content has appeared on other platforms (SSFIV:3D Edition, RE: Mercenaries) and exclusives to the platform (Monster Hunter Tri G, RE: Revelations).

It's likely that our historically employed approaches will continue on Wii U.

Before you guys confirmed that the UMvC3X image was fake, there was still tons of excitement and hope for the game. — Greg

Svensson: Unfortunately, there were also about the same number of people complaining.

To answer your question though, I do understand that there are folks who want more and I'd love to thank those guys for their passion and loyalty, but for right now, there's nothing in the works.
