Street Fighter X Tekken
Street Fighter X Tekken's PS3-Exclusive Mega Man and Pac-Man Are Never Coming to Xbox 360

Back when Mega Man and Pac-Man were originally announced as PS3-exclusive fighters for Street Fighter X Tekken, we speculated that one day the Capcom and Namco mascots might one day make their way into the Xbox 360 version as DLC or what not. But that's never going to happen according to Capcom and nor was it ever intended to happen.

Speaking to SFxTK Producer Tomoyaki Ayano, Silconera asked about the possibility of both characters making it into the Xbox 360 version of the game after files were discovered by hackers lurking on the game disc.

"Unfortunately for Xbox 360 users, Mega Man and Pac-Man are exclusive to the PS3 version of the game," Ayano explained.

"Every game has data on it that is unused. In this case, Street Fighter X Tekken for the Xbox 360 did have the Mega Man and Pac-Man data on it," said Ayano pertaining to the found files on the disc. "But, we never intended to release these characters on the 360. They are PS3 exclusives and that was our intention from the very beginning. They are not going to be timed exclusives either, they’re PS3 exclusives."

So there you have it. You can consign all hopes of ever playing as tubby bad box art Mega Man and Pac-Man riding a Mokujin contraption to the scrap heap. It simply ain't gonna happen. However, you can find some comfort in the fact that 12 new characters will be coming to Street Fighter X Tekken on July 31st for 1600 Microsoft Points.

Well I never asked for them anyway. By the way, this game is pretty much dead so why complain about it. Last but not least, they're on the disc so you can always hack it and play with them and the other 12 locked characters.

@1 nice input , very useful.

I dont really care they look stupid anyway. Any word on achievements with the new DLC characters? Will be a deal maker for me, purely as it gives me something to do with them.

Just read that JOJOS will be 1600 msp as well, once bitten twice shy capcom?

Not neccessarily a bad thing. In my opinion, & probably many others, it was a wasted gimic anyway. PS3, you can keep them, you need every gimic possible to try to stay afloat Sony. But this? Yeah, we cool, you keep them.

Nothin wrong with exclusives at all that's what makes having two different consoles worthwhile, if I could get everyhig the same on both consoles it would be pointless owning both. Luckily that isn't the case and I do own both

WELP. Guess that means no Street Fighter x Tekken for me! I already own SSF4 and have BlazBlue to cover my fighting needs, and the absurd on-disc DLC was off-putting anyway.

But yes, I was looking forward to these two and they would be the only reason I'd get it (used, obviously) over better, less greedy fighters.

Why is it people complain loudly when the 360 just gets a timed-exclusive, but PS3 gets actual exclusives all the time and I don't hear as much whining about it?

I get it, I understand why exclusives exist, but people seem to pick on the 360 this generation and they're not the worst offender.

I don't have a problem with on disc DLC as long as it's reasonable (like shipping with 34 fighters out of the box, including 18-19 new characters) but if it's on the disc, give me access to it at some point. This is ridiculous.

Remember, Capcom swore Super Street Fighter 4 would never be released on the PC. Not a fan of SF vs TK, but you should never trust a word that comes out of Capcom's mouth.

Didn't Namco Bandai say the same thing about Yoda / Darth Vader .. Then when the online went quiet they put them up for download..

I can see capcom doing a similar thing

Capcom are the fighting game version of Activision .. They want money and don't give a shit about consumers

This is why I hacked the game back when it released. I bought the special edition for $70 and then found 14 extra characters hidden in the game. My friends come over every weekend and we play with the full cast and have a blast. That includes Mega Man and Pac Man. Capcom can keep there $20 DLC as i will continue to play my hacked version with friends.

Megaman looks like crap in this game anyway, could care less.

Same goes for Pac-Man, but only cause he's forced to fight on some stupid wooden robot thing instead of with his own bare hands.

I'd be arsed if it was a better fighter, but let's be honest this ran out of legs fairly quickly. If the DLC doesn't come with achievements I'll only go back to it to finish off the last couple of achievements and sell it on.

So let me get this straight, the characters are on disc, but capcom won't let people use them? My guess though, capcom will sell these guys. They're too greedy not to at the end of the day.

Locked DLC already on the disc is the reason I won't even consider picking this game up. Capcom can shove it where the sun don't shine.

I have never minded paying for DLC that game developers have made post production of the game. But to lock content on a disk and then sell it as DLC, what a bunch of.....

@33 i think he knows freddy krueger is in the xbox version,, what he's getting at is if ps3 gets an exclusive character then xbox should have an exclusive character, instead of ps3 always getting the best of both worlds. nevermind research dude, you just need to chill out.

ps3 gets these sweet exclusives all the time because they're trying to create incentive for players to buy the ps3 version of the games. as in, there's no incentive without them.

oh and @5,, not everyone's comments have to be as "profound" as yours. his made me chuckle, brightening my day. yours did not

Fine by me, as i Never have and NEVER will buy this game anyway. I am so glad i chose to wait and see how capcom would treat this game since i was gonna buy day 1. They can also shove their over priced dlc. In my opinion their dlc for sf is always over priced. I would ratherthem just do character packs for lets say 400 msp. Why 1600? And to top it off no new achievements? Ppl can whine about it having plenty of content but the fact is that achievements DO sell.

At least this didn't happen to a game that actually mattered, since SFxT is both the worst Street Fighter AND the worst Tekken.
