The lights are on
Capcom may be regretting putting download content on the game disc for Street Fighter X Tekken.
The DLC was supposed to start rolling out this April, with the 12 additional fighters made available after the PlayStation Vita version launches this fall. Xbox 360 hackers, however, have already accessed the content and have begun playing locked fighters online. Videos are already surfacing on YouTube capturing the action (see below).
Capcom's SVP Christian Svensson acknowledged the problem and says they are working with Microsoft to track down and ban the hackers.
"Yes, we're seeing news of this. Quite ballsy for folks to be taking hacked Xbox 360s on Live where they are detectable," he said. "In any event, we already have opened channels of communication with MS on these issues Friday night. If you can capture screens or video of this in action (as some have already) we're working on bans for boxes and accounts with MS for haxxors."
Capcom previously said Blanka, Sakura, Guy, Cody, Elena, Dudley, Alisa, Bryan, Christie, Jack, Lars and Lei will all become downloadable for the console version of the game for $20.
