Capcom has confirmed reports that some nosy gamers have managed to crack open Street Fighter X Tekken and find it's unreleased, on-disc DLC and using it during online matches.
Already they're "working on bans for boxes and accounts" with Microsoft - calling the hackers "quite ballsy" as they red flag themselves for tampered Xbox 360s. 12 characters locked.
Naturally fans aren't too pleased because of the disadvantage they suffer, but also because content on the game disc is locked out until they pay more later for the DLC.
Obviously Capcom has been a bit liberal with the 'DLC' abbreviation and repurposed it to mean 'disc locked content' instead of downloadable. The presently deactivated characters aren't meant to be up and fighting yet until Street Fighter X Tekken release for PlayStation Vita. The Mega Man and Pac Man PS3 exclusive is actually on the Xbox 360 disc.
"Yes, we’re seeing news of this. Quite ballsy for folks to be taking hacked Xbox 360s on Live where they are detectable,” confirmed SVP Christian Svensson of Capcom. “In any event, we already have opened channels of communication with Microsoft 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 Microsoft for haxxors.”
The studio argues that having the DLC already on the game disc removes the need for meaty downloads when they release and to also eliminate the need for another disc version later. Other DLC - both free and premium - will be available to fans before the Vita launch.
While the Mega Man and Pac Man exclusive content was also included on the Xbox 360 version, the other exclusivity involving InFamous’ Cole and the Sony Cats, wasn't present. Should on-disc DLC really be happening?
