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.
