I bet its only free when you buy all the dlc for Street fighter vs Tekken. There is no way Capcom master of the disc locked content is giving something away for free

Just stop. If you have Dragon dogma or RE6. You would know capcom has been trying. Stop being so negative.

Re6? Really what were they trying to do with that? Make it a shooter with crappy shooter controls that no one wanted. If they were gonna try they would have done what resident evil fans wanted and made one akin to the original games.

@Mika

I "had" Dragons Dogma, and yes it is a good RPG from Ca$hcom however over time I moved on to other games because they started weekly DLC with it like they do with their other games that actually sell decently. As far as RE6 I've been told people would rather play ORC than 6 which is saying a lot coming from people who grew up playing 1-3 and Code Veronica X like I did.

Ca$hcom has been trying; trying to rip people off ever since the start of this gen. Where's Rival Schools HD, Capcom vs SNK HD, Auto Modelista HD, etc, games that actually had substance, that wasn't just Street Fighter, and that was actually fun to play, and different.

Capcom has been doing bad decisions for a long time just to get more "greenies". If Resident Evil 6 was more like a real horror game and not a shooter, things would be different with its reception (IMO, RE6 could be something more like this {please watch in HD}: http://www.youtube.com/watc... ).

Making games with content locked on disk and later make you pay for "unlocking codes" is a really macabre plan, not a mistake (MVC3). And remember you had to pay to get Asura's Wrath real ending? It's a really insulting act to their costumers. At least they say this crossover is free (unless I'm wrong).

Always go warm and fuzzy inside when I see the 8 bit visuals, then it steps up a notch when the music kicks in :)

Looks pretty cool, best thing Capcom have done in a while :P

Lmfao at the time of the announcement on stream I was thinking it was an epic troll by Capcom. It's a nice announcement though and seeing how they have a serious image problem, a nice little touch. Don't care for megaman myself but think gaming needs more interaction between fans and publisher like this.

It's on of not consoles. That's why it's free.

i'll definately be grabbing it, hope it supports 360 controller for windows, weird its not coming to console..
Tetsujin  +   1159d ago
I wonder how long till it hits console; I'd get it then. Those sprites gotta be from the PSN Street Fighter 4/Alpha 3 lineup (Which I downloaded for free from PSN+ ).

they say nothing is free and if it is free there is always a price
