Castle Geek-Skull was highly impressed with Street Fighter V's announcement trailer given its great effort towards honoring the franchise's history and fanbase.
And a giant middle finger towards the X box brand LOL. Capcom is taking their talent down to Sony
I can't believe the sheer amount of posts in the SF5 stories, it's marvelous. Nice to see capcom appreciating Sony for a change. Monster Hunter vita would be nice now too.
i think they appreciate Sony quite nicely with their other exclusive...Deep Down. SF was never an exclusive unless you want to say the 1st release of SF2 on the SNES or the original on the PCE/TG16 as Fighting Street. the games were never properly represented on sony platforms. From the original PS1 up to the PS3 there was always something a bit...off with the translation. Could be the default control mechanics as the games are certainly better played with full on fighting sticks as opposed to game pads. But to me (personally) the saturn had the best arcade to home translations prior to the dreamcast release of SF3. then you get the compilations on the PS2 and xbox and while both the 360 and Ps3 had SF4, you have to give capcom some serious credit for making an effort with a game like Tatsunoko vs SF on the wii. Its a fantastic game all things considered. So the announcement of SF5 for PS4/PC isnt so much a honor to the fans or the franchise as it is more about Sony trying to boost sales of their system in JP. I mean think about it. All consoles are selling poorly over there. So anything that could get people to put down their mobile or portable device and pick up a fighting stick is what sony is hoping to achieve. As for the PC release...seems a bit odd but then again with the ease of plugging in a xbox or ps controller to a PC means that those without the PS4 could still play using their controller of choice. It will be interesting to see if Capcom takes the usual approach. release this game and then 6 months later release the Super edition for all platforms (wii-u included).
@Darth Street Fighter III was only on DC, that was an exclusive but the only one ever as the series has been on almost all platforms.
@soap, yeah I made a booboo. SF3 and 2nd impact are DC exclusive but 3rd strike is not. The only exclusives to the PS platform are the EX games.
98xpresent - "And a giant middle finger towards the X box brand LOL. Capcom is taking their talent down to Sony" I would be a little realistic here with the simple facts, Sony did not publish this or fund it, it's a company agreement for which Capcom still owns the rights to the street fighter IP. There is also a PC version and will most likely have xbox controller buttons prompts. The Xbox one Version is most likely withheld code targeted at an other date.
And a new MegaMan
I see its exclusive to PC, what about PS4, can we play it on PS4? SUUUURE-YOOOU-CAN!
I'm only a PS4 owner but i still don't understand why 3rd party developers go exclusive and i don't agree with it at all. I hope that trend dies quickly. The first party studios should be the main focus of both Sony and Microsoft. All 3rd party devs should make their games available to as many players as possible. Sad that in 2014 we still have these major titles being exclusive, especially after they already released the previous iterations for all platforms.
I can guarantee you will see Street fighter V on xbox one later on.
The wording was pretty specific. I think they could get around it with a "super" street fighter game in the future.
A bit like how you will see Dead Rising 3 on PS4 later on? Think again.
How do you guarantee it? Do I get money if you're wrong?
Ppl like you should be ignored
"Ppl like you should be ignored", he replied in a fit of pique, blissfully unaware of his contribution to future would-be scholars searching for the very definition of irony. Lol, I kid. Great to learn that they're working on a new Street Fighter game! It looks sharp too... :)
Not really. Street Fighter franchise has historically flip-flopped on platforms it's been on. Dead Rising has been the same. This is Capcom for you. They are not in a healthy position.
People can disagree with you all they want, but it is what it is. If SF5 is a FULL exclusive, it is basically a slap in the face to 1/2 of the fighting community. Oh and if you were wondering I only have a PS4, always been a PS guy. This kind of thing, if it continues, will only end in more butthurt... stop being hypocrite, you know this isn't good.
will someone please pass me the salt lol
Grab it yourself, it's next to the whine!
Heh... that's pretty good.
Can't wait for this one. Happy gaming!
Happy time for Pc ans Ps4 players good:)
Agree with this article completely, the trailer was amazing, mixing in little bits of footage alongside everything that makes Street Fighter special.. whoever designed it deserves a cookie or two. Still I don't feel sorry for Capcom for having it leaked, I'd say it was probably intentional. There could be multiple reveals over the weekend, by releasing the trailer briefly today, they've just gone and put their game completely in the spotlight and got it even more attention than what it was going to get come the scheduled reveal.
This must have been the ps4 exclusive they said would corse outrage lol oh well I'm a PlayStation guy so I guess I win lol they shouldn't have played with fire when they stole tomb raider lol
Would take Dead Rising 4 over SF5 thanks. And if this is the huge AAA game all I can say is zzzz not interested.
If you have a PS4 you'll likely get both. I doubt capcom will have anymore Xbox exclusives from now on.
Depends who is splashing out the cash capcom isn't going to turn down the money and everything they have done so far just reinforces that stance. Street fighter is a good fit for the ps4 and its player base so no surprise Sony have handed out the cash for this one, Deadrising just seems to lend itself more towards the xbox target audience and is why microsoft dished out the money for it and might do so again if they need to fill a hole.
Dear Gamers: Thank you for buying all of our overpriced cut content DLC and held back fighters. We appreciateyour blind loyalty and your monies. Love, Capcom. P.S. We may even have a few more minor color swaps for you to buy instead of unlock this time...in their own separate pack of course.
Looking forward to playing this on my ps4. The console for fighters
I'm excited for it. I'll get a second controller when it comes out lol.
This is the biggest hypocrisy in gaming. When MS announced Rise of the Tomb Raider the media (especially N4G) condemned it saying it was bad for gaming etc. Now when Sony does it is OK? Bullshit! I own both consoles but I'm a gamer and the hypocrisy is real and the biased is real. Where are the videos from ign, games pot, angry Joe, alpha omega sin etc? Hypocrites, if you are a Sony fanboy and you agree with this you are a hypocrite!
Who and what part of the media said it was OK? Yea we are happy just as xbox owners were happy for tomb raider. So what. There will always be bias and hypocrisy. Even our own government is filled with bias and hypocrisy yet here we still stand. Just remember Microsoft was the first to pull this tactic in the first place that fuels this console war. So of course the biggest competition is going to follow suit. We should already have saw this coming. Blame the nature of the business.
*sigh* third party exclusives are bs. sf4 was on xbox. then sf5 should be on xbox one. how is this good for the consumers?
And yes. the tomb raider deal with microsoft is also bs. Even if it is timed exclusive.
What's this? There's too much salt on my plate? I like my meals to be a bit bitter! Now someone please pass the "whine", while I sit back and see this butt hurt unfold!
It makes sense. Whats the biggest gaming name in Japan - Sony. The sales there will be astronomical. So start with the demographic that loves Street Fighter and then put in on their most popular console in that demographic. Im sure if Microsoft outsold Sony in Japan the story would be different.
Half the people aren't even talking about the actual article. The trailer itself IS a love letter to fans. Evo moment 37, the Capcom cup, other tournament footage of fans cheering, the sheer amount of footage of how important SF series is to some people was awesome. It put a smile on my face Ill tell you that. It added more meaning to a game than any other trailer I've seen in awhile.
Lol it's fun to see some people gone mad with this announcement. Even though i'm sure X1 will receive Super / Ultra ver. of SF V. Anyway, if some people seen the hint of SF V being exclusive for PS4 through this ad than i salute them https://www.youtube.com/wat...
