    Not bad for a extended port. ;) Do people really buy the same game twice? XD

    maybe people are waiting too see if a

    "Super Street Fighter x Tekken turbo edition" comes out

    ie:
    2nd version of the game comes out that has extras

    like what happens with the other Capcom fighting games

    This is seriously the deciding factor for me with all Capcom fighters from here on out. I thought about picking up SFxT at launch, then just remembered how I got shafted with MvC3 a few months after release. Never again.

    Didn't buy and probably will never get around to buying SFxT due to Capcom's recent trends.

    Problem for me is that I've played the various versions of SFIV to death and after trying this one it does nothing extra other than add some characters from a game series I never really got into.

    If they had already released TriG over here, they'd have one sale more. Mine :creep:

    Capcom's next statement: "No DLC for Street Fighter x Tekken as we did not see enough fan support for it."

    Also after the MvC3 debacle (a new version of the game incompatible with the old one including features that the devs had originally said would come as an update or free DLC) people will wait to see a 2nd version of the game. At least with Super Street Fighter IV it was released a while after the original and was a budget title.

    The main reason is DLC to be bought although the game is really fun. Sex may sell but not when u displease the fans otherwise

    That's what happens when you try to fuck with the customers, Capcom.

    lolno.

    Piracy never slowed down any sales - pirates don't buy games, that's why they're pirates. Even if piracy was eliminated on the platforms concerned, the sales would be pretty bad because of the economical situation around the world, not because of piracy.

    Its not piracy. Capcom has been making really wrong moves lately with their fighting franchises

    I'm going to guess that you're being sarcastic. :P

    The poor sales are not due to some kind of issue that gamers have with Capcom.
    Otherwise CoD MW2 would have sold 3 copies, and EA would have been dead quite some time ago.

    Yes, if anyone has ever seen my discussion with piracy, my comment was extremely sarcastic.

    3.. 2.. 1.. The new Guitar Hero! Capcom a new Activision? :creep:

    Seriously speaking what new things have the games brought? I haven't played other fighting games than Tekken (PS3) from the present gen consoles. Somehow these games seem to be nothing more than remakes..

    Fighting games have become a bit like porn. There have been so many iterations of the same thing, if you need a fix any old porno will do.
