Today Capcom’s own ComboFiend announced that the Street Fighter V Beta would be postponed until further notice.
I hope everyone sees this as a good thing, we all deserve the best game possible at launch and these are the things that need to happen to get us there.
sadly people won't. they'll just complain that they can't play ....
Betas are suppose to find bugs and fine tune the game. Just think of what could have happened with unity, BF4, Sim City, or PC Dark Knight if they did a little more bug testing before they released. You figure people want to be able to play a game their spend money on when it hits retail, not be beta testers for the first week or longer.
Crash dummy severely injured in test car - take note car manufacturers.
what the hell you smoking ? the retail launch will have problems as well i guarantee you that. people forget Battlefield 4 had a beta before release as well and look what happened to that.
Yer on PS3/360 and PC. Not on PS4/XBOne
Come on..while I want to agree with you, lets not give up hope already that it can be better this time and the beta might be really useful.
would have made no difference but keep kissing ass. i'm sure you find broken games acceptable but i don't. this beta couldn't even handle 10,000 people so how the hell will it handle millions on release. you damn ass kissers are a cancer to gaming.
@spacedelete Cynical people like you are whats wrong with the community. Leave and never come back.
Your second post is the definition of stupid... You want rock solid games, yet here you are trying to downplay a beta test for a game that isn't due for at least 7-8 months... I am speechless at the shear amount of idiocy you managed to type down. Do I need to type this out in all caps for your tiny brain to process this? THIS IS NOT THE FINAL RELEASE, THIS IS MEANT TO BE A TEST. This is the problem publishers created with their "get into beta by preordering" crap. People like that think this is a way to play the game early and real, meaningful betas get lumped into the same drawer. This is the result.
Thank you for saying this. Honestly people its a BETA to test out any potential misfirings the launch might have. True some "Betas" come out and are much more ready to go and more polished. This one wasn't. Stop freaking out about a TEST going poorly when that is entirely the reason it was done.
Sony and Capcom broke. No money for servers. I c an incomplete game shipping. With many patches later. I wouldn't buy that for a dollar.
it's a "beta"
Meanwhile the final release of Halo TMCC is still suffering network issues more than eight months after release
you fanboys can't let go of Halo even though theres a game that was even worse online called "Driveclub". double standards much ?
Did he jus say driveclub is worst?? Because halo mcc still isnt working properly
I think the Halo problems boil more down to the fact that it's running on so many different engines, plus it was rushed out. Uncharted collection won't even have any online and its probably because its a right headache to get it working properly.
You mean the same way you can't let go of driveclub??? Which works flawlessly now.
Oh surprise yet again the same troll with the same arguments in every SFV related topics
Take note of what? It is a BETA. Are you really acting like they would postpone a scheduled release date due to the same issues? They only delayed it because it is only a beta.
It's a good thing this happened in the beta and not the final version
I'm loving this new way of thinking by Capcom. Before they did not care much to launch a material broken to the players, Now we can get unlockable DLC stuff just playing, without pay. I hope this is a resurrection of Capcom.
Unacceptable. I mean how can they screwed up the PS4 version of Ultra SF4 at EVO and now this? It doesn't look good trying to make the PS4 as the system of choice for SF. It is a beta but I don't recalled ever seeing a beta delaying indefinitely due to server issue. Really inexcusable.
Oh look, another Xbox fanboy showing fake concern, as if they care in the first place. Seriously, a company trying to get it right should never be insulted. We're seeing a different Capcom and you want to patronize them because of it's exclusive to PS4. You can take my advice to spacedelete up above, as well.
Did you just say a beta having server issues is unacceptable when the game is at least 7 months away a beta should have issues thats the whole point of a beta you dudes think destiny or battlefield those weren't betas they came out about 3 or 4 months before the game way too late in development to make major changes the games are nearly finished at that point if a doesn't have issues at such a early stage then it not a real beta
Tell us, what does the PS4 being the choice for Street Fighter have to do with a beta having issues? Are you implying that another machine (that, YES, you DO favor), wouldn't have such issues? If so, you'd have to prove that to be the case - by showing other projects in the same boat, as a result of their PS4 exclusive status. For a guy who prides himself on being bipartisan, you never fail to put down one machine on a more constant basis. This is exactly why many people give you the crap that they do. OT: As I said in the article just after this one (literally two articles basically saying the same thing back-to-back), being that it's a beta, catching these issues this far from release is a major plus. It would have been much worse to release it in a broken state, as some games have already done. I credit Capcom for trying their best to make sure the USFIV fiasco isn't repeated.
ultra street fighter 4 is fixed on ps4 now and i havent counted no problems with game at all
Any people want 'always online' streaming etc. its not ready, the net won't be ready for years.
Please for the love of mike, look up what a beta is people! A beta is there for the sole purpose of testing an unfinished game. Jeez
thats a joke them servers are terrible
