I don't support hacking at all, but in a way Capcom you should known when you rip people off, people just might rip you off.

"I don't support hacking at all"
Alot of great programmers/Coders start out as hackers, then they start working for companies like IBM or Microsoft.

Hacking is the reason why you can remote-play all your PS3 games on the Vita right now while Sony didn't deliver on their promises.

It's the only retaliation against corporate rip-offs like Scamcom.

They've sold you an unfinished product, it's like buying a car without a windshield or backseats. Don't you realize how FUCKED what they did is and its repercussions not only on consumer trust, but on the industry too.

"‘surprised’ at the level of skill that these hackers have in being able to unlock the characters in this way."

Please, this has to be a lie! It's hard to believe that Capcom is that ignorant!

People love modding stuff these days, and especially costumes for characters. It was done extensively for Street Fighter III... What did they expect with SFxT???

Sad that the last good game I remember them making was Mega Man Mavorick Hunter X for the PSP. I loved it sooooooooo much since it was just a lot of fun to play and added some much stuff as well as changed others. I was happy that I bought that game.

Oh ya, Another good game they made was RE4 for Wii, that was a lot of fun. Sad that they are pissing fans off everyday now since they used to be one of the best.

I like EA this generation. Yea the online pass sucks and they had some misses but for the most part, they did pretty good.

As for Crapcom, they deserve the WORST company of the year. They are horrible. How do you charge for characters that are locked on the disk and on top of that, some of the characters (see guy, Blanka) were FREE in previous iterations?! (Super Street Fighter 4). It's just pathetic on their part. I don't support hacking but Scamcom deserves this. They screwed over their consumers so karma is a ....well you know what.

"I know you're right but it's a little ridiculous. That's like saying a lot of great cops started out as criminals."

Actually, some of them do.

The FBI is known for hiring reformed convicts. The CIA has more 'criminal' hackers working for them than they even kinda admit.

Ever wonder what ever happen to some of these guys? You think their gonna let a guy who hacks every government site known to man, sit and rot in a prison? That's counter productive.

Capcom, deserved this. They have been screwing over the people who've been supporting them left and right. This will continue until they get the picture. Hackers have all the time in the world and the flimsy DLC security these companies use is laughable. Most can be unlocked with a simple word being changed in the code. You don't want people to hack the stuff? Stop putting it on disc and making it 1000% more easy.

MrMister  +   1041d ago
$crew Crapcom where it hurts: In the Wallet
______________________________ ________________
Yeah i'm getting RE6 used. I bought Mass Effect 3 used also. I could have got them new no problem. But my conscience couldn't let them screw me over.

Also, I played SfxTekken for the first time yesterday, and it feels like a cheaply made, terribly unbalanced mess. Plus the tekken characters play nothing like they do in tekken. It's just another unbalanced Street Fighter game (just like Street Fighter 4). SSF2 + SF3 Third strike + Sf Alpha 3 are the only balanced SF's (But that's just my opinion).

As for Crapcom, and other crappy DLC thieving companies like Activi$ion, EA, etc: I'm only buying used. Even if it costs me $50 to buy the game used + a $10 online pass ; I'd rather buy used, knowing that I'm screwing cRapcom out of $50.

Until they stop screwing us over, I'm buying only used. Companies who are legit (like Rockstar, Naughty Dog, Namco, most/all Sony studios (I own a PS3), etc) get my full support and I'll always buy their games new.

I agree with STxT statement. Been Tekken fan since tym. But they totally fukd all most the characters, it mean it seems more of a street fighter skin than transition. Like some charactors have a much better command set than others Jin & Kazuya they most ppl favs. I know they mine. I stopped playing this after 2 days. I hope Tekken X Street Figher Rocks

@Blackpool:

So what if Uncharted 3 had an online pass. Did I say I had a problem with online passes? I bought uncharted 3 NEW because Naughty Dog is awesome and deserves it. I also bought EVERY piece of DLC from them too. More companies should be like them. But if a piece of sh*t publisher like Activision or EA or Crapcom uses online passes, then i'm buying used--then pay for the low priced online pass just to screw with them.

And yet Capcom isn't disappointed at themselves for having their loyal fans pay for contents that is already on disc.

ForNgoods  +   1042d ago
It's hard to muster any sympathy for capcom at this point. I've bought all your fighting games b/c i'm a big fan of the genre, as many others in the fighting game community. We were the niche market that kept the scene alive when it was practically on life support and you still milk us to death with re-releases and dlc.

Well know this. The FGC is only so big, and the casuals have stopped buying your games, as you can see from the sales figure of UMvsC3 and SFxT. You've over saturated the market and sales have already begun to decline thanks to your shady business practices. So dont think you'll get anyone to feel sorry for you over hacked DLC.

I still don't see the controversy over locked DLC. Is it justified if I hack a demo so I can unlock the full game? I pay monthly for a cable box and I'm not mad that there are channels that I have to pay extra to access. Plus, this outrage is mostly coming from people who hate DLC and were never going to buy it to begin with. Oh well. If people want to spend as much time as possible downloading every piece of DLC a game has to offer then so be it.
vyke3  +   1041d ago
If you paid $60 full price for that demo then yeah you should hack it.
cyclonus007  +   1041d ago
I'm talking about free demos that do the exact same thing Capcom has done and it is widely accepted.

And speaking of Capcom, why would anyone buy a fighting game from them for full price knowing that a few months later they would release a special edition with more characters for $20 less? At this point, they are notorious for doing this.
InTheZoneAC  +   1041d ago
a demo is just that, a demonstration of the game. Typically they are just a portion of the game unless you happen to D/L a little game that has a full game unlock.

Hacking a full game demo into the full thing is NOT the same as hacking a game with the content locked on it.

You paid for the full game, you get the full game. But not according to capcom.

And paying for tv service is not the same as paying for additional channels.

cyclon you really can't be this stupid...
cyclonus007  +   1041d ago
The definition of "full game" is what is up in the air here.

My point is when you buy a full game, you are paying for the content that is advertised and the developer/publisher is allowing you to access. They are the gatekeepers, period. This not controversial and is the way it has always been.

There is no contract between the content provider and the consumer that gives access to what the provider doesn't want to to have. You are buying the game (not the disc) and the game is dictated by the developer (not the consumer).

This situation is no different from having a cable box and cracking it to give you access to the channels you didn't pay for. The same goes for cracking the unlock key of a demo to access the full game. Or buying a system because of an exploit that allows you to play games you illegally downloaded for free.

It all comes back to entitlement. Just because additional content is on the disc doesn't mean the gamer is entitled to it. You paid for the game that you got. If you want more, you are humbly asked to pay for it, regardless of if it is on the disk or not. You may want more, you may not; but that doesn't mean you should take by force what you feel you should have.

Society calls that "stealing".
dredgewalker  +   1040d ago
@Cyclonus

Wrong example, a cable box does not have the tv shows stored inside it. The shows are still transmitted from the provider to the consumer. It is very different from a disc that holds all the contents.
TheEatingOrange  +   1041d ago
You just went full retard
MrMister  +   1040d ago
What demo have u ever paid $60 for? Your a damned fool if u did! Also using cable as an example does not fly here; cable is streamed--just because a spot is reserved for the channel, doesnt mean its already in the cable box. the box doesnt store the networks IN them.

Tomoaki Ayano said "he's kind of disappointed that it created this kind of environment where a bunch of players were playing the characters but a bunch were unable to play with them."

So what about when you do unlock the rest of the characters for a price? Its still going to create an environment where people have them and people that don't.

Contradicting yourself much?
DarkZane  +   1042d ago
Piracy is bad, but Crapcom fully deserved what happened here. This kind of hacking need to continue, as those companies like Crapcom just will never stop this unacceptable behavior until they are sent this kind of message.

Yeah but is this really piracy? As long as they paid for the disc, I don't see what could be done about this.
dredgewalker  +   1041d ago
Lol, good point. We already payed for the disc along with all it's contents and it's not like they we're illegally downloading the dlc.

I hope people continue to hack the Hell out of this game. Put on your pirate hats and eye patches too. Capcom are getting their due for all of the bulls*** they have done over the years. Way back on the SNES they had super edition, turbo edition and all that crap and still doing it now. Only now you have to PAY instead of PLAY for costumes and unlocking hidden characters too?! I hope they go cry in the corner. No one cares if you are disappointed Capcom. We have been disappointed for years. This is the payback b***.

Suck balls you thieving c$#ts Capcom. Selling your games with 3/4's of the content, only to demand that your loyal paying customers should have to pay extra to get the full game experience deserved.

Next up Hactivision & there COD maps. I hope the same thing happens to any & all dlc that takes advantage of consumers. Capcom being one of, if not the worst offenders......Suck it, I have no sympathy for you turds, as opposed to full games being full games suffering piracy.

Disapointed about the hacking? Well we are all disapointed of your way of doing business.

There will be plenty of hacking if you carry on the way you are Scamcom. I use to think you were a great game developer, but sadly over the many years you let the fame of Street fighter and Resident evils success go to your head. Its a long way down Scamcom. Dont let the rocks break your spine on the way down.
