After a two month delay for Street Fighter X Tekken arriving on PC, reports are already coming in that the PC version of the game is riddled with the exact same bugs that were present in the console version of Street Fighter X Tekken when it launched back in March for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
According to DSO Gaming the sound glitch for online play that many console gamers complained about early on in March for Street Fighter X Tekken is now rearing its head in the PC version of the game. And even though the sound issue was fixed for console gamers, it's still alive and well for the PC audience.
If you think that maybe DSO is just picking with a scab trying to heal, think again. All it takes is a quick trip to the Steam forums to see more threads popping up addressing the same problems that plagued the console version of the game. The sad part about it is that there are actually people there still defending this, saying how great the game will be when it finally gets patched after the next big release. How comforting is it that Capcom doesn't fix the games until the next game is ready to launch? How's that for quality consumer service.
Worse yet is that when the DLC releases I'm sure there will be people still defending Capcom's decision to disc-lock the content, which was completely unnecessary but is becoming a growing trend in the gaming industry.
In the case of Street Fighter X Tekken on PC, it's just a really pathetic thing. I know before that Capcom's SVP Christian Svensson mentioned it was going to be a copy and paste job from the Xbox 360 and I joked that it would carry with it all the bugs and glitches but I really didn't think they were going to completely forego fixing the initial problems with the game. It kind of makes you question what they were doing for those two months they spent porting the game?
Anyways, DSO Gaming warns people about the problems plaguing the game and to paraphrase for them, you might want to Hold The Wallet until Capcom decides to fix the game.
