PC Super Street Fighter IV in Doubt Due to Piracy

4Gamer.net interviews Street Fighter series producer Yoshinori Ono in the site's native Japanese on the upcoming release of Super Street Fighter IV. Though Ono-san recently indicated they are still considering a PC edition of the upgraded fighting game, his answers now indicate severe doubts about a PC release. A Google translation of the interview is headache-inducing, but andriasang.com offers a more sensible interpretation of his comments, which say the PC edition will probably not be released due to piracy, in spite of the fact that a PC edition is basically complete, since that is the version found in arcades. He does say they will reconsider if they can come up with a proper way to combat illegal copies, though he rules out an exclusive release through Steam because that would be unfair to those unable to use the service. Thanks joao.

" the PC edition will probably not be released due to piracy,"

So, their answer to this whole piracy thing is.... don`t sell ANY copies to legit buyers at all eh? This is amongst the stupidest things I ever heard. There are a crapload, literal crapload of peeps willing to buy at the PC counters. So, to thwart the pirates they will shoot themselves via the foot and ass, and not sell any copies.


Yup, that is gonna really hurt who? Themselves. Good thing the industry on the whole doesn`t use this same amazing tactic. Or you`d all be twiddling your thumbs literally.

Yup. Way to bend them pirates over backwards!! Ya got em by the short and curlies now!!!!!! Sure showed them!
