Captivate 2012: New details of cross platform matchmaking and other Street Fighter X Tekken details
Posted on April 10, 2012 by OG

Street Fighter X Tekken is definitely being lambasted by gamers due to some of Capcom's actions regarding DLC and features of the game.  A surprise feature of the PS Vita version of game was shown in a trailer at Captivate 2012:  cross platform matchmaking.  Players on the PS3 will be able to play against players on the PS Vita in Street Fighter X Tekken.  As nice as that sounds, one does have to wonder how much lag will be going on being that the PS Vita can only be played via wireless internet. 

Also, a new detail shown was how owners of the Vita version and PS3 version of Street Fighter X Tekken will have the new PS Vita characters - Lei, Christie, Blanka, Sakura, Elena, Dudley, Lars and Alisa - become unlocked on the PS3 version.  One has to wonder if this was a big factor in putting the DLC character on-disc which is causing such an outrage amongst gamers.    And finally, a trailer for these PS Vita characters was made explaining why they're joining in the fight.

Yes because I'm a big fan of The Elder Scrolls and can't wait to see the huge world of Tamriel
No because I'm a big fan of The Elder Scrolls and the idea of a MMORPG version of the game sounds horrible.
