In what appears to be a new leak, a list of what seems like all the initial DLC planned for Street Fighter X Tekken and its prices has surfaced. Take this with a giant gran of salt.
Planning the DLC before the game is even finished, shame on u crapcom !
I am not giving Capcom excuses, but all companies plan DLC before the game is finished
... if you buy a Capcom game on day 1, you already know you'll end up getting screwed over with the DLC-milking. Capcom will nickel-and-dime you for all it's worth. Just wait a year and get the Super/Ultimate/Extreme/Complet e/Whatever version instead for 30 bucks in the bargainbin.
Well obviously it is not getting screwed over if you know what you are getting into and dont care about it . I and some other wont stay there missing on a whole year of fighting game joy for this . With or without dlc , and with most fighting games publishers , it's pretty much the same process the FG community usually gets behind and is fine with , and wich might not sit with others (wich is fine too) . - We get a game , we enjoy it - A new version gets out with a refresh of the game via tweaks , rebalances and new stuff . Again might be annoying to some , but it does refresh a game loved by others and revive the competition frenzy . It's basically the same for a few other mp based genres And at least this gen , with new habits online for the whole gaming genre , it is no longer full priced re-release scams as seen in the past . And if going too far and when needed , the FG community easily punish a publisher ... as seen in a few cases such as UMVC3
lol what a joke, they plan DLC when the game´s not out yet....
You're a F'ing idiot if you buy this game when it launches. We all know that a Super/Hyper/Ultimate/Remix/Tag version is coming along with a slew of DLC so you really only have yourself to blame when Capcom eventually bends you over.
At least, it started that way and then turned into a bad developer habit.
Fall for anything
DLC 1 - Color costume pack 1 DLC 2 - Color costume pack 2 DLC 3 - Color costume pack 3 DLC 4 - Color costume pack 4 DLC 5 - Color costume pack 5 DLC 6 - Color costume pack 6 DLC 7 - Color costume pack 7 DLC 8 - Color costume pack 8 Edit: DLC 9 - Color costume pack 9 DLC 10 - Color costume pack 10 DLC 11 - Color costume pack 11
This is how it is with ALL companies, you plan ahead.
Ok this is actually good for Capcom, hear me out the DLC is colors, gems and costumes which can hopefully all be unlocked in game but it is impossible to tell. At least Akuma, Ogre and game modes are unlockable through game rather than pay for them which is somewhat respectable. It actually isnt respectable for capcom but it is a little better. Gems is a risky decision especially when some can be payed for
Guys, this gen has been going on for what, 5-6 years now? Maybe I'm a little jaded when it comes to hearing about DLC, but it's obvious that publishers/devs have DLC planning/releases throughout the development cycle. It's foolhardy to think that DLC is always planned post-release.
I'm not defending capcom or the DLC business model, I am just a little puzzled as to how gamers have not realised this yet. Get used to it guys!
I "was" thinking about buying this somewhere down the line... But after seeing this, I'll spend my $ on companies that don't do pre-planned DLC. Sorry Capcom, back in the 90's you were one of my favorite companies, but now you just lost a very faithful customer. I will only buy used from them here on out until they learn to stop with this pre-dlc garbage.
", I'll spend my $ on companies that don't do pre-planned DLC." Like who?
@Kaveti Namco with Tekken - outside the download to make 5 Dark Res. online I have yet to see them do any dlc for their games, and I'm a big fan of Tekken 3 and Tag. I have 5 DR online and 6, not once did I see any DLC listed or released. Sega with Virtua Fighter 5 - Another game I haven't seen tainted with DLC; granted the 360 version has online but I play on the PS3 and no "pre-planned Extras" SE with Final Fantasy - A lot can argue 13, vs13, 13-2 is considered DLC, currently I haven't seen a lot of nickel-and-dime that Capcom does; I hate to say it but at least SE releases games as expansions or continuations, or "at the time this was going on..." Konami with Metal Gear Solid - Not one time since I played MGS have I seen ANY patches or "DLC" for the series - I don't count MG online because with online games patches and expansions are expected. Atlus - Catherine and Demon Souls (not Dark Souls) have 0 DLC released, and both are good games I will continue to play if they released some sort of sequel. Those are the big games I still play to this day that I don't see with "Day 1 DLC" or "Planned DLC" within 6 months of release. I'm sure there's other games but the majority I either don't play or know about.
It is rumored that SE cut a whole game's worth of content from the first FF13 game, and that this content may have later been used in FF13-2. If that's the case, then SE is just as bad, if not worse, than Capcom. As long as Capcom doesn't cut out game modes that you paid for in order to get you to buy the DLC, then I don't think it's a major problem. Bungie (or MS) locked players out of several multiplayer modes like Team Slayer and Big Team Battle until they paid for the map packs.
6 DLC Characters...are they high?
Yeah I hope they can be unlocked by playing the game and this is just to unlock them from the getgo
2 are unlocked from gameplay, and the other 4 are new characters it seems. Unlocks two secret characters, Akuma and Ogre, as well as all additional character colors and special modes "without having to perform the in-game tasks to unlock them".
most likely unlock for the most lazy
I don't mind DLC that is like that. Capcom should be using that too, than putting gamers through the ringer. They could make alot of money. Don't want to beat arcade mode on hard to unlock Evil Ryu? Just buy him for $3. I believe they did that with 3rd Strike online. That way, you can either unlock them, via gameplay, or just buy all of the modes. I think it is a win-win.
So they did a cut on stuff THAT SHOULD BE IN THE GAME? and then sell just for more $$$? Sure capcom Sure. Not getting a peny from me with that DLC
And how do you know that content was suppose to be in the game? Stop jumping to conclusions without proof.
but how do you know it wasn't suppose to be in game? sorry, I love being a smartass :P. anyways, I'm not surprised. It's capcom for heaven's sake!
Isn't it obvious? The games not even out yet and already have a list of their planned dlc. More then enough time to stuff the characters on the disc. They did this with Capcom Vs. Marvel and the Street Fighter games. The proof is already provided. Not like the game is using up all the space on the dvd or blu-ray
That is what they did with Dead Rising 2. Instead of putting in cheat codes or unlockables, you have to BUY big head frank, or slow-motion gameplay, ect. That shit should be in the game!
I think it is quite likely that the character dlc would be for people too lazy to unlock through the game . Like the two character in KOF XIII .
If you seriously think they will give you free characters then you need to do some more thinking. They do nothing like KOF13. If they charge for costumes what makes you think they wont charge for extra characters.
Those are just unlikely to be the dlc ones . They'd try to sell others imo . And the more and so far more serious leaks from guys like Lupinko confirm at least half as playable from the start . Finally , it's silly how people are just hoping bandwagons at hearsays . KOFXIII actually sells you 3 characters so far , all of them variants of existing characters with new moves . Not really complaining as in fact i bought them . I just find it hilarious how so many are on capcom's case with fighting games , when only namco , no ... not even truly namco , only the Tekken studio , hasnt tried yet to sell characters and stuff . Do they deserves bashing for their antics ? Sure , but what about all the others getting free passes ?
Naw capcoms not the only ones but their the worst when it comes to DLC. My favorite fighting game this generation is Blazblue series but im fed up with Aksys. Probably others get a free pass because their not as popular and you know that. Most people who like SF series hate BB series.
to pay for characters...ok... to pay for costumes... .I.
quite the opposite there for me . I strongly dislike dlc characters , as it also pose a problem for tournaments and logistic , or just being able to move to different places without carrying your accounts info . Costumes ? who cares you can live without it , and if you can't you buy it full price , or discounted later on .
It won't pose a problem for tournaments here in the US. As a tournament orgainizer myself, I can tell you that if you DON'T include DLC as a legal character, unless it is broken, you will get in trouble with the fanbase. The only reason why DLC was banned in the MK tournament at EVO last year was that there was not a balance patch delivered that was promised to be delivered when EVO's PS3s went offline a month before the tournament.
Color Edit Pack 1 – FREE FREE?????? The world is going to hell!!!!
i learned my lesson capcom...either i buy cheap or used or wait for the next super doper ultra version if your fighting game. i thought they may change their way with STxTK....what was i thinking!? thanks for destroying my innocence capcom, i can never trust again! T_T
I'll wait for the ultra/ultimate/arcade/super version :) !
Even if it isn't true. It's a lesson hard learned. Shame on them if it is real.
This bullcrap. Lupinko already said Guy and Cody would be avaialable from the start.
Gran of salt? LOL @ present day journalist that can't spell.
Most of the dlc looks a little om the expensive side, if the list is true.
Akuma as DLC?? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOO!!!
it just unlocks him
Damn they busting heads with them prices.!
What a rip off!Things that use to be unlockables are now pay content!
Yup, I've already come to the conclusion that I should just wait a few months to find out more about any software I wanna buy, unless it's a game that I know won't receive a huge price shortly after release. Games like COD don't lose their value until the next iteration. Then theirs games like Saints Row 3, Resistance 3, Batman AC, ect, ect,, that drop in price buy half on amazon a month after release. BTW, I bought MvC3 day one, so when UMvC3 came out I felt like Capcom slapped me in the face. Not making UMvC3 dlc made me rethink who and how to support devs that deserve my money. Also, online passes have affected how I buy software. I'm not saying don't support your favorite devs, I'm just saying be smart with your money, cause what you buy is how the market reacts to the consumer.
one of the two things that makes you think of having a jtag, the first being region-lock. wait a sec..
gonna wait for the ultimate arcade edition
55€ dlc? GO TO HELL
I was excited about getting this but seeing the track record of capcom nickel and diming their customers, plus the fact that they are completely shitting on the 360 version but not even giving us any exclusive fighters while the ps3 version gets 5, I'm passing on this one.
No Bruce Irvin = No purchase. I'll wait for Tekken X Street Fighter instead. Bruce better make that roster or it'll be no purchase again.
i want to buy this but i know there will be an ultimate edition of it by the end of the year
Why do I get the feeling all these dlcs will be on the disc with only a 100kb unlock fee.
Why are there so many idiots on here right now? $7.99 for four characters is a steal compared to selling them individually for $5. One more thing, what makes you think that they are going to be on the disk in the first place? Granted, there were a lot of characters on the UMvC3 disk, but you have to remember that these are two seperate development teams at work here. Ono, yes, did release SSF4 and AE a year apart from each other, but he added new stuff(8 new modes in Super, 4 new characters in AE) to the game. What did the Marvel team do when they released UMvC3 6 months from the vanilla release? Spectator mode, something that should be in the game in the first place. Be glad that Ono is handling the game personally.
I am surprised they are not using this kind of DLC for a collectors edition or a preorder incentive. Honestly not getting the DLC just want to play Tekken. I wonder if Capcom will ever do a Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat or Capcom vs Sega.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!?! 7.99 for Cody and Guy Christie and Leo???? Cody and Guy are characters that I ALREADY PLAYED IN SSF4!! Why do I have to pay for them again!? Why cant I just pay half the price for Christie and Leo?!? This is ridiculous!!!
Fake list is fake.
Anyone remember the good old days when things like colors and costumes would be included with a game to begin with?
