Tekken Tag Tournament 2 game director Katsuhiro Harada has spoken with NowGamer regarding Capcom's controversial DLC approach with SF x Tekken. Full details and quotes here.
Easy to say, but we'll see when Tekken x SF comes out.
In all fairness though that's a joint project between them. I believe he is referring to just Tekken games. Plus they might not charge for the Tekken characters and Capcom might decide to charge for their Street Fighter characters.
CxT was produced and published only by Capcom and TxC will be produced and published only by Namco or whoever is publishing this one. Just like CvS, SNK didn't have any input on the game, it was all Capcom. Snk just gave the permission for Capcom to be able to use their characters and that's why the game feels like SF and not a KOF game.
Not really a joint project. Capcom has no creative input in the game Namco is making just like Namco had no input on Street fighter x Tekken.
I think a lot of people forgot that TxSF is coming out...
that's true but it won't be comming out for awhile
I remember a time when you paid for a game you paid for it once and got the whole thing. Ah, memories.
That and they'd ship a game after testing it for bugs, instead of sending out broken copies that they plan to patch on release day or soon after...
Someones never played games for the Wii.
Think Capcom's approach to this was shocking, and their explanations of why it did it this way are less than satisfactory.
Regardless of whether Harada will keep is word about never charging for DLC content, one thing is for certain that Capcom is taking note that their competition is also weighing in on their dirty business practices. I'm hoping this forces Capcom's hand in making some sort of resolution to gamers concerning the on-disc content.
I hope he can make it happen but I doubt it.
Like the earlier response above... When tekkenxsf is released, it may still have sf chracters as paid dlc. The contract between Crapcom and Namco may have issues with Crapcom controlling the dlc on its side of the crossover. I just hope the tekken guys see the opportunity they now have to show up Crapcom by releasing a better game with no dlc chracters (as much as possible).
Remember Marvel Vs. Capcom 2/Def Jam Fight For New York and the amount of time you had to put into games to unlock everything? Remember Cheat Codes? Didn't Saints Row The Third charge for Cheat Codes lol
They did but I think it was an early unlock so you don't have to play the game to get them. Kinda like what EA does with their time saver packs.
Tekken 6 is a complete game ,but unfortunately I can't trust Namco, look at SCIV or SCV those have Disc Locked Characters for sale...
dude project soul charging for characters in their game has nothing to do with namco. that's project souls decision, not namcos.
They're the innovators of pay for disc locked content... Read this article(the title is to deceive you): http://www.vg247.com/2010/0... They gave those nasty ideas to other companies, and it worked quite well... What about Ridge Racer for PS3 or Vita? Those games have that DLC BS too... Also their newest Jrpg Tales of Graces has that as well and many of their anime based games such as Saint Seiya or One Piece(Day one DLC BS)... This is why I don't trust Namco at all...
"I see characters and their move sets as kind of like chess pieces." Thank you Harada, this is the way it should be. Can't wait for TxSF since I never bothered with SFxT, which I'm glad I didn't.
I still don't get SFxT, or for that matter TxSF. From my perspective it just can't work. The gameplay styles are just to different. Admittedly I haven't tried it for the reason I just stated and due to the dissatisfaction I felt toward MvC3. This just seems like an entirely pointless exercise. I just want Tag Tournament 2. No silly frills or gimmick, just a lovely Tekken experience. Or in other words, get your Streetfighter away from my Tekken Capcom.
Well, of course you don't get it if you haven't played it yet. The Tekken characters in SF x T are quite well realised :)
