Capcom: Street Fighter V Will Never Come to Xbox One

Get that idea out of your head.

Street Fighter 5

When Sony announced that Street Fighter V would be coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4, there was a lot of surprise at the company having managed to bag such a high profile exclusive, but for fans of the series who are Xbox bound, the news was worrying. They pointed out, convincingly enough, however, that Capcom would surely find a way to circumvent the exclusivity- possibly by releasing a ‘Super’ or ‘Ultra’ version on Xbox One, or something else along those lines. After all, Capcom is a port happy company, and Street Fighter especially always gets ported to everything that is capable of running it- why would Street Fighter V be any different?

Well, Capcom is insisting it will be, so if, for some reason, you are holding out in hopes that the game will actually come to the Xbox One sooner or later? Better get that idea out of your head, guys.

“One comment we see a lot is that something like a Super Street Fighter 5 is going to come out on Xbox,” said a Capcom representative to Gamespot. “But the reality is that this is a real partnership. We are console exclusive for this franchise for this numbered run.”

Those are strong words, after all- never say never, and all those things, right? But it sounds like the partnership has a real meaning to Capcom. They aren’t just getting paid or getting marketing support, but it sounds like they are getting some real developmental assistance from Sony.

“We’re not talking about how we’re handling post-launch content, but I can say the relationship with Sony does open doors for things we haven’t been able to do in the past,” the representative said.

“The relationship serves a gameplay and development purpose, and not just a marketing value.”

So… if you’re a fighting game fan, or a Street Fighter fan (is there any difference?), best start saving up for a PS4 now, guys.

    Great news, we don’t want over sized baby looking character fighters.
    -Killer Instant and Mortal Kombat are the Adult fighting games

    • Riggerto

      All characters look oversized and baby when you play them at 720p/900p

    • Fweds

      Don’t they look wobbly and jerky on ps4 at 20fps to ?.

    • Starman

      LOL exactly …

      Gaffer, your grasp of the English language seems to have improved. Sadly, the same cannot be said about the contents of your comnents.

  • Ricoh123

    Good. Street fighter isn’t even playable on the ps4 with its huge input lag.

    The franchise is dead and there are far better fighters out there.

    Do not want.

  • Jacob S

    KI and MKX are both already better anyways.

    • Kidd

      Still pisses me off f-u Capcom!!

  • You Are Flat Out Wrong


    More crying from PS4 scrubs when PC gamers beat them with less input lag and no framedrops :^)

    Bad news for Xbox fan boys. Street Fighter is the biggest fighting game in the world and it wouldn’t play well on Xbox One anyways with the severe input lag and horrible Xbox Live infastructure. The Xbox controller is also inferior for fighting games. It’s allways been that way.

    • Starman

      Son , no one cares for fighting games but little boys , like yourself …

      opinions, opinions everywhere

    • Fweds

      Derp, streetfighter is no more of interest than Dead or Alive, Tekken etc, etc,etc.
      Most people don’t care about it and those that do will be wise to get the PC version rather than the PS4 framerate drop version.

    • bardock5151

      You know what’s funny about your post. The PS4 is the only console to have horrific input lag, I suppose you’re trying to cover that up are you?

      It’s actually hilarious that the tournament dropped the PS4 and went with the Xbox 360 version, one generation on and the 360 is still the preferred competition console.

    • XbotMK1


      I see you tried to pull a fast one by not specifying which Street Fighter you’re referring to. The reason why Ultra Streetfighter “lV” was played on the 360 is because the PS4 version was a bad port with bugs. Input lag was due to the bad port. Street Fighter V most likely won’t be having the same problem because it is built from the ground up for the PS4.

      “The PS4 is the only console with input lag”

      The Xbox One has problems with input lag in some games and the Xbox One has worse deadzones than the PS4 controller.

      It’s pretty bad that people prefer the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One. LMAO

    • bardock5151

      Lol, deadzones? That’s the best you got? All that takes is another firmware update to adjust them, like they did just before Titanfall released.

      As for input lag, you’re an idiot lol. Input lag is usually either down to the game, interference, or just plain stupidity and peoples inability to understand basic TV functions like game mode lol. Also don’t forget about the raging tweens, that’s one of their best excuses in CoD lol.

      Go ahead and search for input lag on the PS4, plenty of material to choose from lol.

      Meanwhile, SFIV proves my point perfectly, it’s built into the PS4 version, through very poor developers, but built in nonetheless.

  • Starman

    No one cares about a fighting game … only little boys… And get it out of your head the ROTTR COMING TO PS4 ..not this generation , maybe next gen , if their broke @$$ can survive…now chew on that .

  • Fweds

    I take it pre orders are low and they are trying to get more publicity by announcing what they already announced all over again.

  • Triton

    Im actually glad, all my friends will choose Tekken instead.
