Super Street Fighter IV Ditching Games For Windows Live

By Graham Smith on May 28th, 2014.

This image is a metaphor. I'll let you work it out for yourself though.

SSFIVAE is breaking free from GFWL! What does that mean? It means that Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition is snapping the shackles of Games For Windows Live and switching to Steamworks this coming Friday.

This is good news, because Games For Windows Live may soon vanish (though given this is Microsoft, it’s not quite that simple) and it’s not yet clear which games will make the transition to other multiplayer-enabling services. Unfortunately there’s also some bad news for people who bought SSFIVAE DLC through GFWL.

It’s a good day for people who love acronyms. Or GDFPWLA, as we like to call it.

A new rumour has entered the ring! Silicon Era has posted about a recent live Q&A session with Capcom USA’s Vice-president of Strategic Planning & Business Development, Christian Svensson, in which the question of Super Street Fighter IV on PC raised its hopeful and bruised head once again.

Hadokan’t: No Super Street Fighter IV For PC

By Quintin Smith on September 22nd, 2010.

This shot reminds me of the time an enormous oily red man picked me up and turned me upside-down.

Gamasutra reports that despite strong sales of Street Fighter IV on the PC and the game being built on DirectX technology, Capcom has no intention of gracing our beloved platform with Super Street Fighter IV. The reason? Piracy. Producer Yoshinori Ono has stated that the company “cannot allow a situation” where the game is available for free on any platform, and that a PC port will only be a possibility if Capcom discover a decent copy protection solution.

Ready for the weird bit? Ono went on to say that a Steam-only release was out of the question because it would be “unfair to PC players who are unable to buy games via the digital distribution platform.” What, as opposed to it being unfair for every single one of us? DAMMIT, CAPCOM.
