The recent Street Fighter X Tekken DLC catastrophe shook many players, but no one’s been as deeply affected as Capcom themselves. The game’s producer, Tomoaki Ayano, has gone on record to say how he felt about the ordeal. Ayano says that while he is indeed “disappointed” that hackers unlocked the characters early (and for free), thereby dividing the online community, he is also “impressed” by the technical skill of said hackers.
Any hacker who enjoys playing the game had better be careful, because Microsoft is still banning those Xbox 360 gaming heathens unwise enough to take the stolen characters online. Everyone who isn’t a thief will be able to pay $20/1600 MSP to download the characters once they release for consoles after SFXT hits the PS Vita this Fall.
