Capcom Replies to Concerns Over PlayStation Receiving Three Exclusive SFxT Characters

September 25, 2011Written by Jonathan Leack

Throughout the course of the year, Capcom has announced several exclusive characters for the upcoming PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken. While many fans are excited to be able to use Kuro, Cole MacGrath, and Toro in Capcom’s next major fighting game release, those without Sony’s current-generation console or plans to pick-up the Vita have voiced their frustration.

After receiving some negative feedback for announcing three fighters exclusive to the Sony’s platforms, Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer at Capcom, posted the following comment:

Guys, we’ve done lots of exclusive content on Xbox 360 platforms (DR1, DR2, Lost Planet, etc.). We spread the love around from time to time.

Games that are exclusive to a platform are one thing, but we’re beginning to see more and more additional content/DLC get the exclusive treatment, whether it be on release, or in the form of timed-exclusivity. It might be concerning, but it sure beats not being able to play the game at all. After all, seeing Cole MacGrath on anything but a PlayStation platform wouldn’t make much sense.

Look out for Street Fighter X Tekken and its three PlayStation exclusive characters when they roll out in March of next year.
