Hello Street Fighter fans! Well, I'm assuming you're Street Fighter fans since you clicked on this, but maybe you're just curious and have little to no love for SF at all. Regardless, if you are a Street Fighter fan, this particular piece of SF news will either make you happy or make you mad. Depending on which side of the console war you're on for this generation.
A new teaser trailer for Street Fighter V (though with all the extra editions of past games, this is more like Street Fighter 25). The trailer was unintentionally released by Capcom to the public early and looks pretty good. Though if you're an Xbox fan hoping to get your next generation smack down on, you're out of luck. According to the trailer, SFV will be exclusive to the Playstation 4 and PC.
As a Playstation owner, I'm super excited that this game is coming to my console! But I absolutely hate console exclusivity. I think a game should be on all consoles, it would not only sell more, but the games appeal would widen as well. Sadly, console exclusivity is still very much a tactic that console companies use.
Though, the word "exclusive" is used very loosely these days. Most games that are said to be "exclusive" are merely timed exclusives. Meaning they'll only be available on console only for a certain amount of time, then any other consoles will get it as well. This is called a 'Timed Exclusive'. The upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider is largely expected to be a timed exclusive.
Here's hoping Street Fighter V is indeed a timed exclusive. For now, you can check out the trailer below!
The trailer is awesome and totally gets you pumped! If you're a Street Fighter fan, get ready to "rise up" whenever SFV releases!
