Yoshinori Ono says there’s plenty of time to save $300 and play Street Fighter V.
Street Fighter V producer Yoshinori Ono recently gave an interview with GameSpot in which he outright told Xbox One users they should go out and buy a PS4. The producer said this way, they will be able to play Street Fighter V when it finally comes out. While there was once talk the game will eventually be coming to the Xbox One, Capcom has come out and said the game will be exclusive to Sony’s console and the PC for the title’s lifetime.
The company has made a number of comments about why it chose to go with Sony over Microsoft and Ono laid out at least one more. In the interview, he hinted that putting the game on the PS4 has allowed Capcom to offer balance updates for free for the first time. “For the first time in franchise history we’re going to allow all balance adjustments to be available free of charge, so we’re treating it as a platform,” Ono said, discussing the benefits of working with the platform holder. “If you purchase the game, you’ll be able to upgrade to the content throughout its lifespan and you’re never going to be punished if you take a break from playing the game.”
While Ono said that gamers have plenty of time to go out and get themselves a PS4, time is actually running out if they want to play the game on launch day. Street Fighter V is due to hit the PS4 and PC on February 16, 2016, before the game hits read out our Wiki and study up on the game.
