Microsoft: Will "work on making amends" for Street Fighter exclusivity
Xbox boss responds to fan criticisms on Twitter
At a PlayStation event this weekend Capcom announced Street Fighter V would be a PlayStation 4 and PC exclusive, and now head of Xbox Phil Spencer is attempting to answering Xbox gamer gripes on Twitter.
In his responses he explains such deals are business but pledges to make amends for missing out.
@CapitanoCasella Business deals happen. We won't do all of them. When we have a 1st party franchise in a genre I'd rather invest in ours.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) December 6, 2014
@BRUSH0GUN I'd love it if XBOX fans could play all the games, but business just makes some deals happen. It's all part of competition.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) December 6, 2014
@broggiedoge Love the idea of game franchise bartering, I'll work on making amends for SF.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) December 8, 2014
In other tweets he also praised Sony and said he appreciated the competition.
Street Fighter IV, the last game in the series, was released in 2009 on console.
