Capcom is hunting down hackers who have managed to unlock DLC characters for Street Fighter X Tekken stored on the game’s retail disc. Twelve additional fighters intended for a DLC release at 1600 Microsoft Points were illicitly seen in the game’s code. Players have reported seeing the locked characters appearing online since the hack. Senior Capcom VP Christian Svensson took to the official Capcom boards over the weekend to announce that the company is tracking down anyone using said fighters, and they also asked gamers to report any infringing users that they see.
“Yes, we are seeing news of this. Quite ballsy for folks to be taking hacked Xbox 360s on Live where they are detectable,” Svensson wrote. “In any event, we already have opened channels of communication with MS on these issues Friday night. If you can capture screens or video of this in action (as some have already) we are working on bans for boxes and accounts with MS for haxxors. I will leave this thread open for people to post pictures, videos, and the like. We will bring them to MS (as we have the last three that were reported to us).”
Svensson later closed the thread, stating, “We will catch them ourselves. Thanks to those who helped.”
