In this makes no sense news; Capcom aims to unify gamers. But how? With their upcoming game Street Fighter V. They claim the reason they developed their game for PS4 & PC was to unite the community. According to our source Executive Producer, Yoshinori Ono gave this statement.
‘We wanted to really unify the community, in previous titles we’d say ‘we’re having a tournament’ and it’s like ‘which version? Is it PC, Xbox, PlayStation? Which joystick should I bring? Which framerate should I practice in?’ It was all over the place. We wanted to have it be one place to play Street Fighter.
“Ultimately, the support we were able to get – not just in terms of community building support, but also technological support and advice – Sony was able to provide to us. It’s really helped us achieve that goal. It’s all on one place and it’s one community and everyone can play together.”
I like Street Fighter and all, but here’s my issue with this statement. How do you sing kumbayah for platforms, but then keep your game off the Microsoft platform? They’re contradicting themselves. Then again maybe I’m just crazy.
