Gaming Blend "Capcom has officially responded to the second set of Better Business Bureau complaints regarding the missing co-op feature for the Xbox 360, and they say that it was never advertised to begin with."
Oh my god! Haha, so they rape 360 players by not letting them use a feature that SHOULD have been included in EVERY version of the game. Then say it will NEVER be patched in. After that, they say they cannot offer refunds for the game, but they will give you a wonderful "30% off a game from the Capcom store!!!" You've gotta be joking... This is a joke right? No company can be this inconsiderate and money hungry.... I don't have an Xbox anymore, but that is just wrong to do to people who have a 360. Capcom deserves to go down as far as I'm concerned, at this point their company obviously no longer gives a shit about your happiness with one of their games as long as they can make more than 80 dollars off you in DLC and disc content.
Bads. They's all bads.
I despise when corporations are allowed to get away with crap like this, purely by creating their own loopholes thanks to cleverly-produced advertising. If they knew it wouldn't have it as standard, they should have printed it clearly on the front of the box and any related marketing material.
Both Cody and Guy were in trailers before the game released. BBB should impose a very large fine and demand a free unlock for the game. Capcom need to learn this business practice will not be tolerated but also fined very harshly so they won't try it again. A full refund should be offered to all who bought the game and/or a DLC patch. Only in America do companies like Capcom get meaningful fines for bad practices and I hope they are punished for trying to punish the hackers for exposing their bad business. I hope justice is served to them on an international level and if the EU isn't doing a similar investigation they should!
i agree, well said there
BBB can 'bad mouth' a business....they can also call media groups on said business....they may be able to get in touch with a few senators or lawmakers.....but the BBB has no true direct power.
It draws attention to bad business practices From a US standpoint. It will take a rich gamer to pay for a court case or a Class Action against Capcom and it will be done. The more I think about what they have done the more my blood boils for ever having bought a Capcom game. Unfortunately if we all just take it every other company will just take advantage... Turning gaming into an expensive subscription service. It's bad enough choosing the right platform for a game you want, let alone one that will not allow these scrupulous dealings. If valve release a console I am there, at least they have morals, do far they have fought for gamers not wallet raped us.
According to Capcom they didn't have the time or resources to add this feature, I guess because they were busy finishing the dlc in time to get it on the disc. Unbelievable, core features dropped to get dlc on the disc. Thanks Capcom x
core type features are dropped from every game, its a platform dependency, some platforms take more optimization than others because some have more processing time. the AI for instance, in pretty much every game is dumbed down to the lowest common denominator. its a common practice in all software development fields, if you wanted this to stop youre out of luck, its going to keep happening. capcom made the right move here and didnt take it out of both versions, instead opting to give a better experience to the platform that needed less optimization to make it a reality.
well i liked this statement in the article "capcom finished the game before street fighter x tekken became gold and ripped off some of it's contents so that it could be put on dlc" yup pretty much wallet raped from the start for the consumers!
well they started with a total lie. "At Capcom, we value our customers" people need to stop supporting companies like this until they start respecting their customers again.
SFxT is definitely the most disappoint game of the year for me. I just went back to Mortal Kombat and noticed a HUGE difference in quality, gameplay and features. SFxT is a bad game and it is no way worth the $60.(This has nothing to do with the on-disc DLC)
You gave them your money knowing this already. That was your first mistake.
Not everyone knew this. Did you check Amazon? A lot of those people were clueless.
I'm referring to Capcom's overall track record as of late.
I'm so glad that Capcom is getting flack from this from a government standpoint. They'll definitely think twice about doing this again in the future now that they know that gamers aren't fooled.
the bbb is not a government agency, its a non profit organisation, it cant penalize capcom in any way. all the BBB can do is tell people exactly what they already know, just how bad of a company they are. they collect complaints and if it gets too bad and the company doesnt take any initiative to fix it, they release those complaints to the public. capcom isnt going to change anything because of this becasue theyre making money from it, the BBB cant stop capcom from doing anything, so as long as theyre making money, theyre going to keep doing whatever they are doing.
