Default No Super Street Fighter IV For PC

The PC version of SFIV was the best version easily. I was looking forward to Super SFIV but oh well....My main concern is that we might never see Marvel v's Capcom 3 on the PC which would be a damn shame.

As the December release of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition approaches, producer Yoshinori Ono has confirmed that Capcom has no plans to bring the game to PC, citing piracy as the sole reason for the decision.

While sales of the PC version of the first game, Street Fighter IV, had been strong worldwide, the platform was also "number one in piracy," said Ono in an interview with the Japanese site 4gamer.net.

Ono was quick to point out the benefits of a high rate of piracy, saying that the game enjoyed a high profile amongst PC gamers because of it. But he argued that in order to protect the Street Fighter IV IP, the company cannot allow a situation where the game is considered "free" on certain platforms.

However, Ono didn't rule out the possibility of a PC release completely, saying that if Capcom is able to find a powerful copy protection solution, a PC release could still be a possibility.

A port of the game to PC would be extremely straightforward, he claimed, as the arcade version already runs on Taito's DirectX-based Type X2 board. There is no chance of a Steam-only release, Ono added, since that this would be unfair to PC players who are unable to buy games via the digital distribution platform



I'm so sick and tired of hearing this excuse

Bought SFIV on PC and PS3. I was going to do the same for SSFIV, their loss IMO. PC version of SFIV completely blew away the PS3 version too, it is my preferred platform always.

Do they not realize that blaming piracy is no longer a valid excuse?

This game was top of the pirate list for a very long time. Blaming piracy is easily excusable. Browse pirate bay top lists for an idea of how many people are dling things. Its insane

And? There hasn't been a game like that for years on the PC, everyone who wanted to play something like that had to buy a console. You think everyone would buy that game again for the PC, if they already had it?

I think the game sold pretty well, obviously lower than either of the console versions, but that was to be expected.

Not releasing a game, because it was highly pirated even though it made money = retarded.

I doubt most of the people played it for more than a day or two.

Not every download is a lost sale. Looking at how many times it's downloaded really doesn't tell you anything more than that.
