Capcom aware of Street Fighter X Tekken hackers

Street X Tekken Hax

Gamers using hacked or modded Xbox 360 consoles have managed to access the DLC characters that reside on recently-released Street Fighter X Tekken‘s disc and are using those characters to play online. Capcom says that they are aware of the presence of hacked characters online and are working on taking action against the players using them.

Capcom’s Christian Svensson is quoted as saying:

Yes, we’re seeing news of this. Quite ballsy for folks to be taking hacked Xbox 360s on Live where they are detectable. In any event, we already have opened channels of communication with Microsoft on these issues Friday night. If you can capture screens or video of this in action (as some have already) we’re working on bans for boxes and accounts with Microsoft for haxxors.”

It seems that Capcom have since dropped their request for assistance, saying simply: “We’ll catch them ourselves.

    Which is more ballsy? Hackers unlocking the characters or Capcom blatantly holding them back in order to squeeze more money out of people?

    Capcom is pulling a douche move on all the people who purchased this game. Unethical i say. Then they want to cry when people found it out. I say screw you CAPCOM. You brought it on yourself
