Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Summary
While Microsoft's Games for Windows Live client is in its death rows there are many futures left uncertain, like all those GFWL infested games still out there. What becomes of them once the beast is slain? A list has been compiled by Joystiq on what's happening with various titles by publishers and studios. The future is bright for some, not so blinding for others.
In a surprise move Capcom has announced they'll be "transitioning" from Games for Windows Live to Steam for the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV on PC. It's unclear how this will work exactly as it's DLC. Capcom are releasing it standalone, but could also patch GFWL out of Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition 2012. They intend for Ultra Street Fighter IV to release simultaneously.
Capcom has announced a new $15 USD downloadable content pack for Super Street Fighter IV that will add five fighters including Hugo, Poison, Rolento, Elena and an all-new, never-before-seen fighter.
Capcom has confirmed Super Street Fighter IV's PC patch 1.07 is ready to go.
The PC patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition will be available through Steam by the end of the month, announces Capcom, as it progresses to the "final approval phase". The changelog is the same as the 1.07 patch for consoles that released a while back. Also DLC has arrived on PC for Street Fighter X Tekken through Steam. GFWL got it over the weekend.
