Street Fighter X Tekken characters can be accessed without DLC
Update: I have placed Capcom’s official position on the DLC at the bottom of this post.
Some users over at Shoryuken have already begun to dissect their early copies of Street Fighter X Tekken and have found a number of reveals. The biggest reveal is that Elena and Dudley along with many other characters have been accessed on the home console versions. We previously reported this, but now have access to the video. It looks like for Elena, the Poison character select was altered and revealed Elena. Here is that video.
As to the specifics behind characters like Sakura or Dudley, I am not sure how they were accessed at this point. Here is a short video showcasing some of their team-based Super Combos.
They are still pumping out more and more videos, so be sure to head over to Shoryuken and get your fill. Street Fighter X Tekken comes out tomorrow.
Capcpom, that's not really a great excuse for putting DLC on the disk. Especially if they can be "unlocked".
Do you even know what you're talking about? This game has no online pass...the reason why it would be much more fair to buy the game used, it's so that when you total the game's used (significant lower) price and the (fake) oncoming DLC price to the full price of the New/Unused copy...makes it all worth the purchase of buying it used and to protect the principle of the whole debacle and teach Capcom the hard way.
When the DLC comes out, both 'used & new copies have to buy the DLC' nowhere did they mention that the New adopters will get the DLC for free; knowing Capcom...they'll never do that.
Please, Elaborate on your point...if you can even make sense of it.
the second i heard about this news, i just couldnt stop thinking "an incomplete game at full price" i took it once for MvC3 only because i was a fan of that game but capcom fucked it up with Ultimate MvC3 and now there's this; i'll probably get this game later on but you aint gonna see a single cent of it capcom
it would be interesting if people (screwattack) set up a poll to see if people were buying a game or not and reasons for not buying them, it would certainly help publishers and developers avoid this kinda of bullshit... or at least make up a better excuse for it
you don't say?
What they should do right now is admit that they made a mistake, and release the characters for free. Maybe they could unlock one character a week, which would mean people would have one new fighter a week, and they would have a reason to hold onto the game rather than trading it in. Maybe make the characters free for a limited time to reward day one purchasers and then have them pay for down the line. The last thing you want to do is cheat your customers and make them less likely to buy your game, or more likely to trade it in.
Arc System uses 2D sprites, which requires a lot less space compared to 3D models. So its easy for them to add a character to the game like anyone can for MUGEN.
OMG! WHAT ARE THEY THINKING AND..
Wait. It's Capcom? Oh, then I'm sorry. I was expecting something like this already.
I put a thumb tack on the table, needle facing up, and slammed my hand on it. It hurt.
>Implying that Bad Box Art Mega Man isn't one of the greatet things ever.
Oh gee, really Capcom? It's to save Hard Drive space? Okay, yeah sure! Tell you what, I'll be sure to save myself some hard drive space when Resident Evil 6 and Darkstalkers come out... BY NOT PURCHASING THEM!!! o_0
first megaman legends 3 cancelled, then no monster hunter 3g for U.S., then fat megaman, and now this!

I'm mostly asking because I haven't actually play the online multiplayer, but didn't Mortal Kombat have this ability too without resorting to Capcom's methods?
I see most of you are upset about this so here's what you have to do: 1. If you are not upset about this, enjoy the game when it comes out tomorrow. 2. if you are upset, DON'T BUY THE GAME!......but also let Capcom know that this is the reason for not purchasing their product.
Don't just let them take your money if you think it's a bad deal. There is also the third option of waiting 6 months for the Super Ultimate Arcade Edition :)
To Capcom's credit, this excuse is much more plausible. Then again, Arc System Works handled their DLC issue much better with the vanilla Continuum Shift: there was enough data to confirm your suspicions, but they were NOT on the disc. At least, not entirely.
It's nice that they thought about convenience to some degree, but back in the day, that's what CODES were for. No point in building it all up and squeezing every once of money from the game.
They shouldn't buy the game at all, because you're telling Capcom you want half a game for full price.
This is simply a money grab on Capcom's part. Other games have solved this problem with things like compatibility packs (EG Ace Combalt Assault Horizon). The entire compatibility pack for that game is much less than 100kb. Usually running in the 10-20kb. With it, you can play against others who buy the DLC without buying it yourself. My advice to anyone getting the game is don't buy the DLC. By buying it, you legitimize Capcom's grubbiness. Capcom doesn't care if you complain. As long as they get paid.
Sorry but everyone knows that Capcom's response is just bullshit. I'm sorry but Capcom got caught and they need to own up and realize that no one is going to trust them anymore.
Buying the game used isn't going to solve the problem, especially since when the DLC comes out it makes it so you have to buy the characters, not sure about the 360 version but the ps3 versions of games force you to update, so unless you want your system to go without updates and not be able to play online You'll be stuck with a locked game.
