You might have seen some early, somewhat confusing reports about SFIV DLC- now you can get the story straight from the horse's mouth (that's us).

We're talking match replays! Expanded rankings! Enhanced matchmaking! A hat for Blanka! Read on for all the details, and check out our [Register or Login to view links] of the alternate costumes...

Capcom: No Online Play for Bionic Commando: Rearmed on PSN

100°
292w ago - Capcom producer Ben Judd shared his opinion on Bionic Commando: Rearmed with Gamasutra recently, stating that excluding online play from Rearmed was "the right choice."

To quote: "After seeing the large amount of headaches, additional production time and cost that comes with adding online, I'm glad we made the choice not to include it."

He noted that many digitally distributed games are plagued with online problems and that "additional sales would not have been equivalent to the additional pains" needed to add online play to the game.

While we certainly have to agree that digitally distributed games have their share of online problems - something any XBLA user can tell you - we can't help but imagine the glories online play could have brought to Bionic Commando: Rearmed.

Capcom Comments on PS3 Street Fighter 4 Load Times

293w ago - Capcom Senior Community Manager Seth Killian was on the [Register or Login to view links] recently to clear up some things about the PlayStation 3 version of Street Fighter 4, and here are his comments:

What's up with the load times on PlayStation 3 version of Street Fighter IV?

Seth: The recently shown builds were final in terms of contents, but were not actual retail discs. They are development ROM discs, which play on development kits.

Dev kit units are known to be a bit trickier than retail, and things occasionally have odd glitches there, but regardless of any she-said, he-said nonsense, when everything is working right, nobody noticed any differences between PS3 and Xbox load times (this was explicitly measured by Gamespot during TGS, since they couldn't find any graphical differences to complain about, but they didn't see load time differences either).

Capcom had PS3 and Xbox SFIV running literally side by side all week at CES with no shame - if there had been some loading difference between the two the hundreds of press who came through would have been all over it, and we might have even tried to avoid putting the two machines near one another.

We didn't because the game loads perfectly fast on both systems, especially...
