Capcom going after hackers who are unearthing even more DLC charecters on disc for Street fighter x Tekken
In my time, we had secret characters on disc that you had to unlock by completing the game on certain difficulties or by completing secret challenges (Super Smash Bros). Today, we have hidden characters already on disc and the only way to unlock them is by spending MORE MONEY for the game you already bought. Pitiful. Heil Hydra!
The fact that Street Fighter X Tekken‘s character DLC exists on the disc is a contentious issue in its own right, but now a preemptive compatibility countermeasure is being exploited by nefarious ne’er-do-wells with hacked Xbox 360s.
As seen in the video above, unreleased DLC characters have begun showing up on Xbox Live. While this doesn’t cause any technical problems for law-abiding citizens or break the game in any way, Capcom is unpleased: “Quite ballsy for folks to be taking hacked Xbox 360s on Live where they are detectable,” said Capcom senior vice-president Christian Svensson. “In any event, we already have openned channels of communication with MS on these issues Friday night.”
Initially, Svensson asked members of the Capcom Unity forums to take screenshots and record videos of offenders, but that thread has since been closed. “We’ll catch them ourselves,” Svensson added, presumably just before donning a cloak and cowl and jumping out the nearest open window.
