Title: SSFIV: AE - Steam Pre-Purchase Available
Post by: Gamogo on May 19, 2011, 09:18:05 AM
Pre-Order SSFIV:AE on Steam here:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/45760/

$120 USD for a four pack, otherwise its $40 a copy.

I'm pretty keen to pick up AE for the PC this time around provided they address the woeful framerate issues online matches suffered when paired against people with ghetto machines. With any luck a system rating filter is available perhaps.

I really hope this uses Steam and not GFW for online play too.

Already bought :D

Though it will still most likely use GFW :(

They tend to have discounts often, so I'll keep an eye for it.  :p:

Will SSFIVAE on PC only work with PC players (ie. Multiplayer only work PC vs PC) ? If so, won't the online group be small?

"If so, won't the online group be small"
There are alot of PC players >.> There were about 20 PSN players that use to play SFIV on PC befor SSF4 came out ;p There are at least 10 guys that were really good that don't play on PSN or on XBL so I can't wait for PC version of SSFIV AE >.<

I think XBL and PSN will have more players but I'm sure PC will have enough for endless matches to be fun, not so sure about ranked matches though >.>

didn't Sony announce 'Cloud' functions with PS3s so PC and PS3s can play games each other as long as same title/version of the game over Steam?

And also if you buy the game outside of Steam, would it be over Windows Live Games like the Vanilla SF4?

Insofar the only game to support cross-platform play is Portal 2 and that didn't really get a look in because on its release weekend the PSN was shut down. Nothing formal has been announced for other titles and I think if this was in store for SSFIV:AE, Capcom would make quite a lot of noise about it as part of their promotion campaign. Perhaps it could be shoe-horned in later on, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Capcom's post-release support for the IV series has been pretty poor and they seem pretty adamant that that buck stops with the AE release of IV too.

Steam is largely a distribution platform (despite heaving a wealth of other features) and this is what Capcom are using it for primarily. They layer Games For Windows on top of IV to facilitate match making and so on which is a patently retarded decision for any developer who uses Steam in my opinion. What this means though is that Steam, disc retail, D2D (or whatever is your chosen purchase method) will all ultimately interconnect on PC via GFW.

It would be nice to play against people on the PS3/PC when playing AE, the computer tends to be a lot less laggy unless someone is deliberately lag switching  8)

I expect modders to go crazy on this. Like the SF4 Koryu mod to make the game more aggressive.

So, I was planning on buying this, since I want to do some more tutorials/combo vids, and just using the PC version is easier than setting up a capture card etc, but then I saw this (http://www.capcom-unity.com/sven/blog/2011/05/25/stuff_you_want_to_know_about_ssfiv:ae_for_pc). The important part being
Quote from: Sven
If you arenít signed in to an online GFWL profile, the offline mode has limited functionality. Obviously thereís no online play, access to replay channels or other online-centric features (and this is the part that keeps the online play secure from hackers or pirates). Additionally, you wonít be able to save any progress in challenges or settings, wonít have access to any DLC youíve purchased and all local play will be restricted to [a preselected] 15 of the 39 characters.

So yeah, not buying that.

Capcom continue to demonstrate their technical incompetence when it comes to the PC platform. GG.

That's just frigging stupid!!

I guess it's Capcom's attempt to stop the pirates, but I give the hackers one week with the game (probably being too generous there) and it'll be cracked for offline use.
Title: Re: SSFIV: AE - Steam Pre-Purchase Available
Post by: Kyle (The Guile) on May 27, 2011, 10:33:22 AM
Basically, what this means is that paying customers will have less functionality than pirates.

Uh yeah, good idea.

All local play will be restricted to [a preselected] 15 of the 39 characters when not connected to the authentification servers?

That's a deal breaker there....

we'll have access to training mode/versus mode etc. with all the characters.

is this right?

No, as long as your logged in to your GFWL account you have full access, which requires a)you're online, b)you have GFWL running in the background, consuming unnecessary resources, c)that the GFWL servers not be currently down.

Sure, most of the time for most people, this won't matter, but it's unacceptable to me.

yeah thats what i meant its just being online so it doesn't really effect me as much but i could c how it could effect other people. Well im still purchasing both pc and xbox regardless of it, just hope they fix it in the future

Considering how badly pirated SF4 was it's really a miracle that they are releasing it in any form really. There is probably a better way of enforcing it though, like a periodic authentication to the net like once a week instead of all the time or something in that thought.

Post by: hornjo on June 03, 2011, 03:11:27 AM
good news for people who complained about the offline restriction

Shortly after launch (it might even be at launch, but we’ll see how submission timing and approval goes) we will roll out a small title update that will completely remove the character limitations for offline mode. That is to say, once you’ve updated, you will be able to use all 39 characters when not connected to the Internet to practice your combo timings, have some fun with a friend on a laptop, or whatever while offline.

Looks like Capcom listened to the fans and realised how stupid they were with the while DRM debacle..

IMO there will always be games pirated and it would have only taken a few days until the  hackers figured out how to unlock the full 39 characters offline.

This is a good move on capcom's behalf I think as there will now be more people interested in purchasing the PC release of the game
