Famitsu Reviews SFIV and gives details abt Alt costumes and first free patch and match replays!!!

Famitsu reviewed SF iv in its latest issue, and gave the game a score of  9,8,8,9 (which translates to 34/40). The latest issue also reveals that Alt Costumes will be sold in a pack of 5 costumes with a weekly release.

another feature revealed by famitsu, is the Championchip mode whcih will be a free dlc patch available from day one.

Thanx to SRK user KIRBYISM we have all the details form famitsu.

KIRBIYISM: "- Alt. Costumes are available only in 5-character 400-MS-point DLC packs, one new pack every week as follows:
Grapplers Pack - Zangief, E Honda, Rufus, Abel, El Fuerte (Feb 12)
Beauty Pack - Chun Li, C.Viper, Sakura, Rose, Cammy (Feb 19)
Shoryuken Pack - Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Gouken, Dan (Feb 26)
Shadoloo Pack - Dictator, Sagat, Claw, Boxer, Seth (March 5)
Classic Pack - Guile, Blanka, Dhalsim, Gen, Fei Long (March 12)
All-In Pack - Get everyone at a discount (1000 MS Points; available from April 30th)

- On day one, when you put in the disc you'll be prompted to download an update that will give you a Championship mode, which facilities play in a tournament format, allowing you to earn more Grade Points. Clearly this is for Ranked match... but I don't see anything that says if there is an unranked/player-match Championship mode.

- Championship mode, as with Ranked and Player matches, can be played using the Arcade-interrupt method (or whatever it's called; under player profile, there's an Arcade-interrupt setting that you can change)

- If you rank in for Championship mode, or any of the Challenge modes (I think; the text is not very clear), you can choose to upload your replay file. Replay files can be viewed by anyone.

its a bit off a steal that there selling the Alts in packs because like alot of other fans I only want 3 or 4 but this means I have to buy 3 packs, and instead of 3 packs fans might as well pay the extra for all of them =/

Why is no1 pissed at this?

I'm pissed that they are charging for the costumes period (considering that they are pre-existing content) but for the people who wanted only certain costumes this is annoying. Clearly someone at Capcom knew that some people would only want one or two costumes and knew this was a way to up their profits. If even 1 in 10 bites they would still make a killing. Pretty low, Capcom.

I will just wait for April to get them all at once. By that point I may not care anymore about costumes and end up not buying them anyway.

Yeah, I'd be wanting a better Zang, Sagat and Gouken ALT so I have to pay for 3 packs?! No way...

asiantom said...

In Capcom's defense, they are a business and they need to make a profit. (Not saying they don't make money :P)

Also, they did also state that people who play this game in the arcade put in a lot of money to get their matches played and to get their alt costumes.

I'll have to agree that by the time the bulk pack becomes DLC i might not want them, but we'll see.
