SSF2T:HDR Screenshots From Xbox 360 Beta

posted in: Game News | 0

If you decided to pick up the less than stellar Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 for the Xbox 360, you were granted access to the Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: HD Remix beta. I hear it comes with one stage, two characters (Ryu, Ken) and online play. Yay? I guess that depends on how much you’re loving the new look and how much spare change you have.

For the rest of us, we’ll settle for a handful of screenshots.

Capcom Digital Day Blowout

posted in: Game News | 0

capcomlogo.jpgA few days ago, the gaming press were invited to “Capcom’s Digital Day”, an event Capcom cooked up to promote, reveal and show off their latest and upcoming digital offerings. Most, if not all, the games shown there will be available through digital distribution only.

I touched on a few items yesterday such as the 1942 remake, Commandos 3 and SSF2T:HDR, but today we were treated with a lot more tidbits including media, info and clarifications.

SSF2T:HDR Beta Coming to XBLA via Commando 3

I hate the bundling of “betas” within commercial products. Especially, when I don’t want the commercial product, but I desperately want the beta. It’s fine if you bundle the beta invite with a pre-order, but not with a game that may not be very good.

Capcom is doing just that.

They are bundling Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: HD Remix’s eight week beta with the Commando 3 — not Bionic Commando, but Commando 3. Commando 3 looks alright, but it hasn’t ignited any sparks of nostalgia yet. SSF2T:HDR on the other hand, is looking marvelous. The beta will be exclusive to XBOX Live! Arcade and available to only Gold members.

I guess that counts me out. The final version is coming to both XBLA and PSN.
