With more and more studios and game franchises going the free-to-play route, could Capcom’s Street Fighter be next?
Enough with "free-to-play" crap. As if 1 f2p title (Deep Down) isn't already enough...
Didnt he teased something for Ps4 for TGS ?
Is that a picture of Bobby Lee ?
It's Yoshinori Ono. The man in the headline.
ahh. Makes sense. they kind of look alike which is why I asked. * FP2 wouldn't, IMO, be a good way to go. SF5 would though.
LOL, now that you say that, I can see Bobby Lee impersonating him.
As if 1 new IP wasn't enough? what? If capcom makes a F2P SF game I hope they follow the Tekken Revolution formula and have a small cast of original characters. A F2P SF might even pump some hype into the SF games from a casuals perspective since it'd be an easy and quick way to learn the basics. I personally would most likely download and practice on a F2P SF rather than buy USF4 just to play people much better than me and losing interest. Especially when I have Tekken Revolution and Tekken Tag2 (thanks to TR). So F2P fighters are not bad from a introductory to the franchise perspective. I mean if I started Tekken with Tag2 I probably would've given up since there's an overwhelming amount of characters.
Soul Caliber, Tekken, now this... I would not mind a free Mortal Kombat to be honest :D
Is it bad that I laugh when I saw the title. I really cant see the ultimate milking franchise become f2p unless they have a heavily update able engine
doesn't he mean pay-to-win model?
This is Capcom. I assume that's what he means.
Oh gawd no! I think it's safe to assume that the whole F2P model has come and gone. I love Killer Instinct but I would rather pay a full price and get the full game. And this goes double for Capcom who I have no doubt would try and squeeze every penny out of their users. I don't see why people are excited for Deep Down. Suuure the "graphics" (once again!!) are great...but this is Capcom and a F2P model...you just know they are going to do anything possible to nickel and dime their users.
If this is true then it will be the first Street Fighter I never play.
We'll Capcom has ruined all their other iconic franchises, why not destroy SF also
Oh god please no. If they do this, please don't make it a main title in the series.
well i guess Capcom just doesn't get it.
Of course it's a possibility. All Crapcom ever does anymore is rehash SF4.
Just release SF2 again, with modern graphics but the same view and gameplay and sell it for full retail price. Take the money and retire to Hawaii and stop ******* with the brand!
Oh God no. SF4 is getting rehashed but now it's gonna possibly be FTP? Capcom is dying a sloooooow death.
Capcom has to be aware of the fact that the reactions from people within this thread are sure to be the predominant sentiment toward this news. What gives?
NOOOOOOOO i dont want F2P
Street Fighter = Free To Play = FAIL
If they did do this it would have to have killer instincts way of F2P where there is an option to just buy everything for £30 no damage boosts or any boosts whatsoever if they had a hearthstone style arena that would be ok I guess
