It's possible. It's also possible that they are complete but not properly balanced. It's also possible that Capcom have no idea how to treat their fans and haven't learned from past mistakes (fighting game popularity boom -> oversaturation and poor business decisions -> death -> sf4 fighting game popularity boom resurrection -> oversaturation and poor business decisions -> ???).

They can't release them right now because Sony wants to screw over console users (including their own PS3 fanbase) so they can try to push their garbage handheld out to more people. This just makes me want a 3DS even more.

Because nobody bought the game?

If Sony paid for the DLC characters for Vita then Sony have not only screwed the competition over but the PS3 owners too. Microsoft have very clear guidelines on this and Capcom are stupid to take all the slack if it was a business decision of Sonys causing all this hassle. DLC should be used to extend a games lifespan but also to extend new sales. Regardless is a shame on Capcom for releasing a product to gouge at a later date.nothing can excuse this greed from a corrupt Japanese company. Farewell Street fighter, megaman, strider and all of those beloved franchises made from a much changed comPany of yesteryear. Die a quick death please Capcom, ur a wart of gamings arse that needs lancing!
