Capcom as addressed recent complaints about how the Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter X Tekken will not have an exclusive character, while the PS3 and Vita versions will. On a thread in the Ask Capcom forum a user asked, “I see 3 new characters so far for PS3 and Vita, what about 360 fans?”
In response, Capcom USA senior vice-president and corporate officer Christian Svensson said, “Guys, we’ve done lots of exclusive content on Xbox 360 platforms ([Dead Rising 1 and 2], Lost Planet, etc.).”
“We spread the love around from time to time. Nothing more I can say on the topic for the near term.”
Earlier this year, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono told Eurogamer that an Xbox 360-exclusive character “will depend entirely on Microsoft.” He also discussed how the exclusive characters on the PS3 and Vita were the result of long conversations between both Capcom and Sony, where they discussed, “what else we could [do] that’s very PlayStation-ey, very specific to those platforms. So we started thinking of characters we could cross over.”
I guess you could read this as Capcom sending a big, ol’ “Deal with it” to Xbox 360 gamers. As if Xbox Live needed to be filled with even more people whining and complaining.
