Street Fighter IV Leaked & Available to Download for XBox 360

50°
270w ago - Piracy is a very big problem in the gaming industry, primarily affecting the PC platform. As such, a lot of companies choose to release new titles exclusively to consoles, ignoring the PC platform for fear that they might lose a lot of money.

While the PC Gaming Alliance and other developers and publishers of video games are backing up the PC, it seems that they are fighting with the proverbial windmills.

But let's not forget that consoles do encounter problems, at least the Xbox 360, as we have recently learned that Capcom's upcoming Street Fighter IV title has already been leaked and is up for anyone to download and play on their modified Xbox 360 console.

Torrent sites are being assaulted by players eager to test out this long awaited title, as there are still quite a lot of days until the retail release of the game in Japan, February 12, North America, February 19, and last but not least, Europe on February 20. Also, let's not forget that the PC version of the game still doesn't have a concrete release date, as Capcom wants people to buy the title for the consoles first.

Street Fighter IV is the latest iteration in the long running fighting game franchise owned by Japanese company...
 

Street Fighter IV Producer Wants Tekken in PlayStation Home

50°
271w ago - Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono has told Famitsu (via IGN, linked above) that he would like to see Namco's flagship fighter Tekken and PlayStation social network service Home come together.

He stated he'd like to see a Tekken 6 tie-up with Home, suggesting that both the Street Fighter and Tekken communities could form some sort of cross-community tournament. A sort of Fight Club perhaps?

Ono also revealed the possibility of a Street Fighter-themed game space. With Capcom already working on exclusive content for Home, this one is practically a given.

To quote: Ono also discussed some of the possibilities for Home Clubs. He suggested that if Tekken 6 were to have a tie-up with Home, perhaps they could create some form of tournament pitting the Tekken 6 community versus the Street Fighter IV community.

Jokingly, he suggested that the Tekken 6 development staff who were reading the article should give Home compatibility consideration.

Street Fighter and Resident Evil Invade PlayStation Home on PS3

272w ago - Capcom plans on supporting PlayStation Home on the PS3 in a big way. Famitsu has revealed brand new Home content based on Capcom's upcoming games, Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5.

To quote: SFIV will receive a post-release patch that will allow players to meet in Home and then jump directly into a Street Fighter match.

In addition to game launching, Capcom will also sell costumes to wear in the Home world. This isn't the first time Capcom has released Street Fighter costume DLC on a PlayStation system - LittleBigPlanet also features a handful of premium costumes for purchase.

Capcom is also developing a Resident Evil 5 game space, which looks remarkably like the game's opening level. Here, players will be able to congregate and participate in various RE themed events. We're not sure if those events will involve eating other Home users alive, but we hope so.
 

Street Fighter II HD (EU) Stuck in Sony QA Due to Problems

100°
273w ago - Although American players have been able to enjoy Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix for quite some time now, European PS3 owners have been left in the dark. We've heard the cries before: "blame Sony," they'd say.

ThePSN.co.uk (linked above) had a chat with Capcom UK's Leo Tan to find out why SCEE is denying release of the game. To quote:

The nice Leo Tan at Capcom UK advised us that the release was currently dependant on €Sony QA€, having been submitted twice before for release but winding up banjoed by SCEE due to €faults and other problems€ that required the game to be €redone€.

Capcom plan to submit a further version €hopefully within three weeks€ that they expect to pass QA, but they €can€t give any assurances as [we] thought the last one would pass€.

Rumors still abound that the game was delayed due to arriving in Europe just after Sony€s €no Trophies, no release€ rule came into effect, so perhaps we€ll get a definitive, Trophy-ready version by February.
