SFxT DLC Character Pricing Announced
Capcom has announced the pricing for their upcoming DLC in Street Fighter X Tekken. See how much you will be paying to unlock your characters.
First Up, Releasing on April 3rd, are the Costume Packs and Color Palette Swaps:
A few weeks afterwards you get more gems and tournament improvements:
Finally, coming “soon” after the Sony PSVita Version (6 months or so?), your 12 Locked characters can be unlocked for the low low price of only $20!
No Brelston, we werent worried so much about the cost as we were about already having PAID FOR THE CHARACTERS THAT ARE ON THE DAMN DISC!
Brelston addresses these cost concerns upfront because previously Capcom had priced characters at $3 each, which would have came out to an additional $36 on top of your $60 for all 12 characters, that’s a ridiculous total of $96 for the “complete” Street Fighter x Tekken. Now it’s “only” going to cost you $80. Up that another $12-20 if you want the costume packs, so $100. Gee, thanks considering we already paid for this content once (both on the disc). WHAT. A. STEAL!
Finally, you have to consider that the cost really is $40, not $20. If the PSVita didn’t exist that is. That version gets the additional 12 characters for free for the $39.99 Vita Game. It’s for reasons like this that I’m more likely to HATE the Vita than buy one.
Morality issues aside, $20 for 12 Characters is a pretty good deal. However, I think the new pricing has more to do with the recent uproar and the Vita version than anything else. So I like to think this happened because of our push back.
