Hackers have made it clear that the downloadable characters for Street Fighter X Tekken are actually locked on the disc already. They have found a way to override the security which successfully unlocked the 12 characters that Capcom plans to release as premium DLC.
They not only unlocked them but also managed to play with them online. The footage below provides the evidence.
Capcom of course still plans to sell these characters as planned and according to Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson, hackers will be “banned from Xbox Live.” The only way to go, but it does, however, depict the Capcom’s Slackness.
The 12 premium characters that make up the on-disc DLC for Street Fighter X Tekken are Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy, and Sakura, while the Tekken side includes Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack, Lars Alexandersson, and Lei Wulong. The DLC will cost you $20 (1,600 Microsoft points).
