GearNuke: "If you are planning to get Ultra Street Fighter IV on the PS4, we advice you to wait a while until some of the major issues are fixed."
Not good news. This game is so old that it should not happen on new hardware. INEXCUSABLE from Capcom.
Think Sony is at fault here, they outsourced the porting job to another company,Other Ocean. They have a bad history for messy ports (MK Trilogy)but still we don't really actually know who's mostly in charge since we don't have much inside info, so we can't really point fingers. Meh, Seeing as this is the one to officially be used by Capcom Pro Tour I can see this being worked on and patched asap.
So Sony outsourced the development/port of someone else's game? Didn't even know that was a thing.
I never knew Sony own SF to the point of choosing who develops the port for the platform. I thought Capcom was the one who did.
Capcom is certainly not to blame on this one, they didn't rush the port, nor did they do the port. If SF5 is broken, then blame capcom.
Played this for a few hours yesterday and it ran perfectly. That and the game is only £20 with all the dlc so I'm not complaining. Compare this to Injustice being re-released at full cost and not much difference in the graphics department, there is nothing to complain about.
I have one main question here, why is it the article blames Sony, when this is in fact a Capcom issue?
Sony published this port, meaning Sony is responsible for making sure it is released at acceptable quality standards, as any publisher is responsible for the quality of whatever they release.
Ah, I missed that Sony published this, my bad then. Thanks for correcting me there! *Inserts foot in mouth*
I get what u are saying, but then no developer would be responsible for bad games. Why blame CDPR for Witcher 3 issues, when Namco Bandi published it, why blame 343 for Halo Collection issues, when MS published it. Then the devs have no responsibility at all after the game is finished. Just blame all the publishers.
What ? it's a port outsourced by Sony to another studios . Of course Sony is to blame , they could have picked better port specialists , and actually glanced at how it was going . They also failed with the certification process
All this article kept saying was that SONY needs to fix it, and that SONY needs to take note of it. How do people not understand that it's the developer that takes care of these things. While competitors may do it, Sony (as a company) almost never interferes or does anything in regards to developers and managing the development of their work. Capcom is the one that needs to handle it ASAP.
Sony published the game, they are the ones that chose which developer to outsource the port to. Therefore Sony are the ones responsible for this.
How do you break a simple port? Man, These companies can be irritating...
Another broken PS4 game? Damn.
at least it doesn't come with 4 broken games.... I kid, I kid On topic: Capcom needs to get their sh** together
Sony published this port not Capcom.
@gantarat well, whosever fault it is i hope the can fix it soon
Lol, nice mcc reference
Just like many games this generation it can be patched. These guys make it sound worse than it is. I have the game and I've only had issues with the menu lagging at times. The game itself looks and runs great.
This should have been the definitive version of this game at release, and it should have shipped on disc even for $5 more. Sony, as publisher, should have delayed this until the devs finished it. This nasty trend of releasing unfinished games and patching them later is going to seriously damage customer confidence and the industry in general. It could even lead to another gaming market crash if it gets too out-of-hand.
That is all this generation is. Lies, bullshots, downgrades, bugs, incomplete games, day one DLC, Season passes, Micro-transactions. Meh. I have seriously pulled back my buying especially on day one. There is no point paying full price day one (pre-ordering even dumber) for a buggy piece of crap. It makes more sense to wait until they actually finish the game and by then the price will go down too. It would be one thing if this game was the only broken bugfest but it isn't, it is the norm. EVERY single game requires a day one patch, then 5 more at later dates.
I'm on the same train (not buying first day or preordering anymore), usually when the wait is over those games are discounted, having amassed a huge backlog of games on many diferent platforms helps a lot with the flow, I'm so tired of broken and unfinished games sold for 100$ (60$ initial price plus 40$ for the rest of the game). My stand is not written in stone as I understand that sometimes, if you want to enjoy a competitive scene like with fighting and racing games you have to compromise, but I'm not a competitive player anymore (even thought I can still deliver some), nowadays I don't have that much time to invest in just one game so waiting (reads as playing other stuff) is not an issue for me.
Get it together Sony, no excuses for this garbage.
This is a jk. The game is great i have no issues and it's 1080 60. Look at metacritic right now it's avg about an 86 or 8.6/10. It even got a 93!
The game actually runs great, laggy menus haha oh heaven forbid the menus are laggy but the game runs great. Cmon man what is this nonsense. Everyone dogging it hasn't played the game they are parroting what someone else said.
Other ocean did the port, that company does not know what they're doing look at Mortal Kombat arcade. Hot mess.
Some comparison pics or video woulda been nice to back up the claim.
They should of gotten a company like Bluepoint Games to do the port. Not some 3rd rate cheapo company that fucks shit up.
If it was such a mess why is it getting great reviews and a great metacritic, atm there are 3 critic reviews on metacritic and they are 9.3/10, 8.3/10, 8/10 what a mess huh? That averages to about 8.6/10 i know metacritic is against Sony most of the time so those scores are that much more impressive, this article is propaganda. If it was bad the scores would be bad, right?
I fully agree. From someone that actually has the game it's no issues with gameplay and I've seen zero lag or slowdown. Even online runs great. It's shows every room as zero connection but when you go in a room it's all green bars for players. Hitting 1 frame links like nobody's business. I really wonder why no reviewers are saying these issues, but random unknowns are saying things are trash. What do they gain? Oh well. After work I will be right back on this "terrible" version of Street Fighter.
I take some of that back. There is some unabashed insanity going on. It can be patched but holy hell. Played arcade mode. Went against guile and the MFn sonic boom was invisible. Not just one shot. Every. Singe. One. Not only that. After I won the sound went wonky until it left the match. Like the music was on a quick loop. I don't know why this suddenly popped up but other ocean has to get this shit fixed. Game looks great but it could not have been thoroughly tested. Nobody should ever use these guys again. Other Ocean....
Fix it capcom, fix it now!
Sloppy...fix it guys. Bring SF2 to PS4 also.
So according to this site, NO developer would be responsible for bad games. The devs have no responsibility at all after the game is finished. Just blame all the publishers. Why blame CDPR for Witcher 3 issues, when Namco Bandi published it, why blame 343 for Halo Collection issues, when MS published it.
No one is agreeing with you because you are using sophistry . People blamed both MS and 343 . 343 is THEIR studios , and Halo their ip . Namco Bandai only facilitate the Witcher game spreading as a publisher . No one even believes they are part of the development process in any way . Here it is a port of an existing game commandited by Sony , wich choose a mediocre studios , funded them , added exclusively to their network , allowed to pass their certification and QA processes ,pumped up their chests about it being exclusive , started a promo process a few days ago about it being better than the PS3 version , it being even the ultimate and definitive version , and yet didnt even bother to check if the game worked fine . Of course it's Sony's and the studio's fault . And Capcom will also get the blame for not even peeking at what's going on , and yet forcing the game as the official version for upcoming major street fighter tournaments .
The weirdest things happen in the game. Sometimes I fight opponents and both him and I have my gamer tag. And the word "Raizen" or something seems to float around the life bars with a random placement. Recently I got an error that the game couldn't svae automatically so when I tried manually the game froze and I could see "Ver. 2014" repeated times in the background... I hope this game gets patched soon. As it stands, I actually think that the PS3 version is more reliable,
