Oh yes, this is exactly what Capcom needed to do, give more reasons to hate them.

I am actually on Capcoms side here. Those guys were not supposed to be selling custom mods behind a paywall. It made the whole SF modding community look bad.

Capcom just salty they can't lock the costumes behind their own Dlc paywall.

Wow... who's being the bigger douche? Capcom, or the modders?

Interesting isn't because this will always happen free speech and IP protection are already enemies.

As much as I hat to say this and I think I puke a little in my mouth but capcom is right on this one those wasn't FREE mods they was charging for them.

Stupid. Just go back to not releasing games on PC. Stuff like mods come with the PC platform. That's the point of an open platform. Save your lawyers the trouble and focus on consoles if that's your position.

Modders charging for content is what they were stopping, they are not shutting down mods, just those seeking to make a profit off of their game.

My mistake then. I still don't have an issue though. If they are making costumes good enough to sell and not using existing assets I (as capcom) would just ask for a small percentage of the sales.

PurpHerbison257d ago

You clearly don't understand what happened here.

opinionated257d ago

You have been waiting to say that huh? It doesn't happen often so enjoy lmao.

I agree with you. Capcom shoud make games only for consoles.
