Who should be blamed for the lack of exclusive SF X Tekken characters on Xbox 360 ?

by

Last night, Capcom usa announced that Mega-man and Pac-man are going to join Toro, Kuro, and Cole as sony exclusive characters for Street Fighter x Tekken. Minutes later, the official Capcom forums where swarmed by angry fans blaming Capcom for not caring for the xbox 360 fan base, especially that Ono san previously made it clear that there will be no xbox 360 exclusive characters. So is Capcom really siding with the playstation, giving them 5, not one, but FIVE, exclusive characters? Does Capcom really hate the xbox 360 and wants to piss off its fan-base? The answer is, in short, NO!

The answer to this burning question is as follow: Capcom approached both Sony and Microsoft to develop exclusive characters for each system. Exclusivity means that the giant corporations, Microsoft and Sony, will have to pay capcom for including such and such character and him/her being exclusive to that particular console. Sony said yes and galdly paid Capcom to make the 5 exclusive characters we now know, while Microsoft declined the offer, and therefore Capcom is not making any extra characters for the Xbox 360 version.

Ono even went ahead, and stated that he wanted Halo’s Master chief and Gears of wars Marcus Phoenix to be included on the 360, however Microsoft declining the exclusivity offer made these requests only wishful thinking.

So you want to blame someone for this exclusivity non-sese? blame Microsoft!

  1. This is exactly what Microsoft did to Mortal K

  2. This is exactly what Microsoft did to Mortal Kombat. Poor fucking form Microsoft.

  3. Come on now there has to be a reason why Microsoft said no. Maybe this game should have been an ps3 exclusive. I can’t see the sales doing well in Japan. Now that Microsoft has the inferior game for the same price. Why in the world would you buy the game for the Xbox?

    I am sure that there are tons of people switching there preorders as we speak. This was a wonderful way to shoot your fan base in the foot. However all these character will be banned from tourney play. So you know what that means? 99% of the people that buy this game will be playing those characters and not giving a crap about a tourney.

    I want to know the person that said no. So we have a name to blame. Lol

    Buying the Xbox version……no matter what. My ps3 collects dust.

  4. “Ono even went ahead, and stated that he wanted Halo’s Master chief and Gears of wars Marcus Phoenix”

    …Seriously?

    And people are actually signing petitions to let this clown near the Darkstalkers series….

    Lets not forget that this is the same man who wants to make a Marvel vs DC game one day.

  5. Well technically MS doesn’t really have any characters besides Master chief and Marcus phenix anyway. I’m betting Rare doesn’t completely own killer instinct they most likely haven’t made one because Nintendo must own a piece, So that takes pretty much ever possible character away except those 2.

  6. Maybe include Alan Wake :P (well if phoenix wright can fight why alan can’t? Besides, i’m sure microsoft is keeping their money in something more, oh crisis crisis

  7. Why does it always have to be just the Chief? How about the Arbiter, Brute Chieften, Cortana (lol), the Cole Train (resplendent in Thashball uniform).or the previously stated Alan Wake as potential characters. I also think Mr. and Ms. Splosion Man, The Gunstringer, Milo and Ilo, and even my Avatar would be fun editions to the game.

  8. I was right microsoft wants to focus on other game genres they state

  9. It’s interesting how they left out Megaman and Pacman too, it’s not like they have anything to do with the PS3 in particular. Maybe they’re going to be DLC on the xbox eventually.
