Back in September, a small crew from the 1UP Network headed to Capcom in Tokyo for some first ever hands-on time with Street Fighter IV. At that time, Shane Bettenhausen, Matt Leone, James Mielke, and Mark MacDonald spoke with SF4 producer Yoshinori Ono at length about the game's art style and gameplay details, where the series has been, and where it's going.
1UP: With the current console war, exclusivity is a big deal. Capcom is no stranger to that with Lost Planet and Dead Rising. Is that a possibility here? Or would you want to not keep certain segments of this game to work only on Xbox 360?
Yoshinori Ono: Speaking personally, I'm pretty sure I'd like to get it out on as many platforms as possible. I don't think I'd like to go the exclusive route. And I've made this bet with the company, so we'll see how it all turns out. [Laughs]
