Capcom is planning to charge for extra quick combos presets in Street Fighter X Tekken

A new feature that hackers already unlocked (and a more controversial one), is the access to more quick combo presets. The screen above shows Ryu having 5 quick combos to choose from instead of just 2.
As you know, Quick combos can be activated by hitting two buttons at the same time, which makes your character go through a stream of movements that are preset.
Looking at the preset image above, you can clearly see a cart with a check mark on it, confirming that preset combos are going to be paid DLC. (PS3, Street Fighter x Tekken, Xbox 360)

Charging for combos???

This is a new low for Capcom.

Why Capcom is doing this?

I think I will wait for Tekken x SF, hopefully Namco is not so greedy as Capcom.

Also for Resident Evil 6, looks like I will wait for the Ultimate edition.
hazelamy  +   855d ago
why?

i should have thought that would be obvious.

they're greedy arsholes
killcycle  +   855d ago
Namco we're greedy with Soul calibur 4 and the whole Yoda, Vadar thing but they have never been with the Tekken series.

They didn't release any paid DLC, all costumes we're customizable with hundreds of items all in the game and they released an online coop mode for free!

one character doesnt make you greedy! tekken 6 was fine too.

No, still not epic enough.

WTF!? That's it, im gonna pirate this. I buy games original or wait for GOTY edition/sale from steam/local retailers but this is...just plain wrong.
StanSmith  +   855d ago
If you don't agree with it then don't buy it. Just because you don't like what they are doing (i don't like it either) does not mean you can pirate it.

The amount of self entitlement amongst people today is shocking.
TheHater  +   855d ago
yeah because paying $65+ for half a game, then having to pay more to unlock the rest isn't a big deal. /sarcash

Just fuck off Marioftw.

Scamcom logic = "DLC = Disk Lock Content"
StanSmith  +   855d ago
Did i say it wasn't a big deal? No. Next time you decide to rage on the internet, read things more carefully then you won't make the same mistake again.

What my post was saying is, don't like it, don't buy it. Which is exactly what i am doing. You don't have some god given right to then play the game for free by pirating it, just because you disagree with a business decision made by the morons at Capcom.

Pirating it will lead to more DRM on titles. Not buying or playing the game will make them see the error of their ways.

Two wrongs do not make a right!

If people are willing to pay for day 1 DLC of ME3. Then I wouldn't put this pass people doing the same for this game.

I know I wouldnt

lol. I'm surprised they haven't charge people per polygon and pixels.

I'm sure someday greed will eventually caught up with Capcom.
solidjun5  +   855d ago
Oh no. Oh hell nah. I can't believe this. I can't believe they even thought about this. This is pure greed. I'm done with Capcom. I loved Super Street Fighter 4 and I was contemplating getting this but not anymore. The game is on the disc and they locked part of it. That whole "separate budget" excuse is BS. If this turns out to be true, I really would like to see how they explain this. Capcom, change your name to Scamcom.

Whats next? Charge for characters head, torso, hands and legs separately?
Smashbro29  +   855d ago
Might be free DLC. It's not confirmed that they're selling this. Could be like the colors. All free.
vortis  +   855d ago
Capcom and free DLC don't belong in the same sentence.

Besides, Capcom said there would be no Super/Ultimate/Hyper/Technical /Herp/Derp/Turbo Edition, they purposefully mentioned the on-disc DLC would be a replacement instead of releasing multiple iterations of the game.

They'll simply charge extra for stuff you already paid for.
beastlysensation  +   855d ago
wow, and here i was praising capcom and their pc ports and not caring about them milking me in sf series, but man, even for me, someone who will buy all dlc for sf cause i am obsessed with the game, this is taking too far. This is just as bad as biowares me3 crap. Oh well, ill still pay for everything and pirate me3. At least capcom gives me a good port, unlike bioware.

He may not be a real gamer.

On the Gamefaq forums they found various users on different forums/websites/etc., making "pro" Capcom messages. Most of the messages were all the same but some of them by different users.

Supposedly, (and the thread and moderator who found this out was banned/deleted) Capcom's damage control consists of having PR-types raid articles like this and try to quell the outcry and make it like people with common sense are just "whining" and "crying".

Unsurprisingly there were people crying foul and that it was just conspiracy theories, but who in their right mind wouldn't be out-raged at this sort of thing? I mean, really?
AusRogo  +   855d ago
Oh my. That is fucking low.
vortis  +   855d ago
Seriously, though, guys, you need to spread articles like this as if it were a wild fire in a dry bush.

Tweet it or Pinterest or Reddit it as much as possible. I think most people would be against this kind of gouging if they just knew it existed.

Capcom was brazen enough to admit to their on-disc scheme because they knew majority of their sales would come from casual gamers who don't frequen sites like this and every other niche site that broke the news about their scheme.

But if this sort of news just went mainstream enough to get a major electronics or news media outlet to cover it then people would at least be informed. I would love to see how the average consumer would respond if they found out about this.

Why doesn't Capcom just charge 25 cents for each continue like the old arcade days, I know the cheap bastards want to.

There is a limit on which you can make people pay for, this is one of those, and this is just over-over-overkill.
