Capcom won't make the same mistake again.

During a recent Eventhubs interview with Capcom's Matt Dahlgren, we learn we'll only need one disc for Street Fighter V . As Dahlgren explains:

"We have paid attention to the way that we've managed things with Street Fighter IV, and we will be mixing things up this time around. This is the only disc you're ever going to need to own to get all of the content in the game, but we'll be revealing details of how our post-launch content happens at a later date, but it will be good news."

It's likely that Capcom will offer extra content, such as new characters and costumes, as premium DLC. But at least players won't have to purchase another disc to get that content. Dahlgren was asked about the original roster size for SFV and while he wouldn't give us a number, he did say the roster will grow over time:

"We're not revealing the total roster count just yet. What we can say is that we're putting a strong focus on making sure that every character put into the game is very unique and has their own individuality. We want to start off with a core roster which will be inviting to new players. When you start off with a gigantic roster right off the bat, it can be pretty daunting for new players to figure out where to start."

Yeah, we don't need another Street Fighter IV fiasco. Let's just hope SFV is worth all the hype because it's a PlayStation 4 exclusive (even if it's also coming to PC), and Sony could use a top-tier exclusive. Look for it in March 2016.

I like Capcom but usually don't believe half the dribble that comes from their mouths, but this time maybe they will stay true to their word. They said that there would only be one version of SFxT and they were right. I wouldn't complain about a Super or Ultra edition however depending on the price and how much fresh content they put into the game.

I chose not to buy any version SFIV because of all Capcom's crap. Glad I didn't. Kinda on the fence on buying this though.

That's nice but they just made a mistake by locking themself down to one console. Don't care how you cut it, fighting games need to be as widely represented as possible. One can never know how the next-gen will play out so creating a huge platform bias on a prior gen can be damaging to a multiplatform franchise's future identity. I feel competitive games like DOA and titanfall screwed themselves by being biased for a good while. Either SF or MK wouldn't be here today, as they are now, if they locked themselves down in the past. Especially if it was to Nintendo or Sega. RIP Bloody Roar. And not every franchise is warmly accepted back into the multiplatform fold after they betrayed fans in the past.

PS4 and PC can play online together. Due to 90% of sticks being overly expensive and only working on one console at a time (PC is always secondary compatible) — that's more important than having Xbox able to play seperately.

if I'm not mistaken, wasn't Super SFIV the only time fans had to re-buy the game (and at a discounted rate)? All additional entries, SSFIV AE and USFIV, allowed you to just do a soft DLC update. I honestly don't remember too much of a fuss over people having to buy SSFIV after having purchased SFIV.

Team Ninja did the same thing with DOA5 to DOA5 Ultimate and I don't think that was branded us some ridiculous money grab. And I don't care what people say about Last Round. Team Ninja offered the core updates, including many costumes, of that game for FREE to DOA5U owners. Something largely ignored by critics. Where gamers could pick and choose what new content they wanted to pay for and still play with the rest of the gang. That was a slick move and very few gave them enough credit for that.
