We have another concerning piece of info to bring you now regarding Street Fighter X Tekken, as just days after it emerged that Capcom had locked away DLC characters on the disc for use at a later date, it has now been revealed that the Xbox 360 is missing a huge gameplay feature that works fine on the PS3 version of the game.
In a new twist of events, it turns out that two players on PS3 can go online together and slug it out in a co-op tag team battle, simply by pressing start on the second controller. For some bizarre reason, this feature isn’t included in the Xbox 360 version of the game, despite the fact that the game manual states otherwise.
Capcom has already acknowledged this on their official forum and unfortunately, it looks like this isn’t an issue which can be patched up in a future update on Xbox 360. Christian Svensson, Senior Vice-President for the company has issued a ‘team statement’ saying that the reason is due differences between the PSN and Xbox Live architecture, but we would question that immediately since the likes of Mortal Kombat allows co-op online play locally no problem, and countless other Xbox 360 games as well.
On a positive note, we’ve spotted on Seth Killian’s Twitter account that a meeting has now been scheduled by the Japanese dev team to discuss this major oversight, so it looks like Xbox 360 owners will be getting their answers soon.
It doesn’t look good for Capcom though at the moment, especially since it this feature was advertised in the game manual – This could lead to a lot of gamers claiming a refund back from retailers due to false advertising of course. After the DLC headache, this is not what Xbox 360 users wanted to see in all honesty.
What are your thoughts on this missing feature, Xbox 360 owners?
