Pre-orders for the PC version of Capcom's Street Fighter X Tekken have opened up at a variety of online retailers today and the publisher's official Unity blog has a brief FAQ offering desktop gamers a few ideas on what to expect.

Unsurprisingly, much of the information is consistent with the treatment of the PC version of Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition and Street Fighter X Tekken PC will once again be using the oft-maligned Games for Windows Live solution to address its copy-protecting concerns.

On a brighter note however, they also confirm that a benchmarking tool will be made available and that its results will once again be used to assist multiplayer matchmaking. Nvidia 3D vision support also returns, and this time they promise greater support for a wider variety of controllers. Don't expect any DX11 niceties though, or anything else beyond higher resolutions and frame-rates over its console counterparts.

The FAQ also pays lip service to the on-disc DLC concerns that have plagued the game's console release. Seemingly missing the point however, they merely assert that downloadable content won't be distributed on the disc and that players will have to download it separately. Never mind that most players already know what content is complete from the console launch and after the delayed PC launch probably should be included in the initial purchase price as an act of good will.

The game is reportedly only getting a boxed release in Europe, and that doesn't appear to include ANZ at this time. However, the good news is that the digital versions of the game now available for pre-order don't presently appear to have an Australia-tax on them. So if you're keen, you can find it on Steam, Gamers Gate and GameFly at the moment (it doesn't seem to be on the AU Origin store yet) for US$44.95.

Street Fighter X Tekken for PC is due to launch on May 11th 2012. For our thoughts on the console version, hit up our in-depth review.

While a vocal contingent of sour Xbox 360 players cry foul about a significant disparity between the Xbox and PlayStation 3 versions of Street Fighter X Tekken -- a swathe of extra characters that are available on PS3, bot not 360 (even though they're included on the game disc and console hardware modders have discovered how to unlock them) -- Capcom have taken to their official blog to apologise for the omission of a less noteworthy feature.

The PS3 reportedly also allows two players on the same console to team up locally and play together online, while this configuration is absent from the Xbox 360 offering. Capcom producer Tomoaki Ayano had this to say:
we’ve been asked by some players of the Xbox 360 version about the 4-player co-op mode and why it doesn’t work when two players team up (locally) and attempt to play online. Unfortunately, due to time and resource issues, we weren’t able to get that feature into the Xbox 360 version and we apologize to those players who were looking forward to it. Throughout the development process, there are times when new features are added (and we added a lot of them!) and there are also times where we have to make tough decisions regarding things to cut. This was one of those times. This mode is supported in the PlayStation 3 version, however, since we tackled that earlier and found the architecture of their system to be more conducive to implementing it. This is the most content we’ve ever packed into a Street Fighter game, so we hope that there are plenty of other modes and features to keep everyone busy for a long time.
Disappointingly, there's no word on whether they intend to remedy either of these disparities, so if you're yet to pick this one up and own both machines, it seems prudent to go with PS3.

Capcom have announced two new characters that will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of the game and they're a little out of left-field. Joining the already exhausting line-up comes Namco's Pac-Man and Capcom's Mega Man. Mega Man has had a rumble or two in the Marvel vs Capcom games, but never like this -- it's bad box art Mega Man, the ugly incarnation of the iconic character, as seen on the 1980s NES box of Mega Man 1.

Check out a video of these guys -- as well as the previously announced Cole (from Sony's Infamous), and Sony Japan mascots Kuro and Toro -- embedded below, or click here for the HD video page.

Street Fighter X Tekken hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 8th 2012, with a PlayStation Vita offering still to be dated.

Capcom have just sent word about the pre-orders available to the Australian brick-and-mortar stores for Street Fighter X Tekken, the newest Street Fighter series coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

EB Games seems to be offering a special edition which includes the game, a really cool Build-It-Yourself Arcade Cabinet Bank (approximately 5” high), Exclusive Prequel Comic Book by UDON and 45 Gems: In-Game Power-ups to customise your fighting style. Anyone that pre-orders the standard edition will also receive the 45 Gems: In-Game Power-ups.

JB Hi-Fi is offering a 60x90cm Wall Scroll that features two of the most revered and iconic fighters of all time: Street Fighter’s Ryu and Tekken’s Kazuya Mishima. Apparently it adds 15% more awesome to any room you choose to hang it in, so be warned!

GAME is offering a t-shirt featuring Tekken’s Kazuka Mishima and Street Fighter’s Ken Masters. Scare your enemies away when they realise you mean business.
The long awaited dream match-up between the two leaders in the fighting genre becomes a reality. Street Fighter™ X Tekken™ delivers the ultimate tag team match up featuring iconic characters from each franchise, and one of the most robust character line ups in fighting game history. With the addition of new gameplay mechanics, the acclaimed fighting engine from Street Fighter™ IV has been refined to suit the needs of both Street Fighter™ and Tekken™ players alike.
Street Fighter X Tekken will be available in stores 8th March on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out our game page for screenshots and videos.

Sony have confirmed at their E3 2011 press conference that Street Fighter X Tekken is coming to the new PlayStation Vita handheld... with an infamous guest character.
Ono just announced during Sony's E3 press conference that Street Fighter x Tekken is coming to PlayStation Vita. It was also stated that Cole from the Infamous series would be joining the cast of SFxT.


You can check out some high-res screenshots of Cole in action on our game page.

It's interesting that Sony seems to be able to get their IP into leading multiplatform fighting games; wonder if Microsoft will eventually follow? (Source : Event Hubs) promoted/edited forum item

It's been fighting game fans' wet dream since they hit puberty, but at this year's Comic-Con, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono finally revealed his "secret project", a cross-over with Namco Bandai's Tekken.

But wait, there's more. There will actually be two games; one from the Capcom camp, and one from the Namco camp, allowing for characters from both to be utilised in each series' unique fighting style and approach. Namco Bandai are actually yet to reveal any details about their iteration of the newly famous cross-over, but the SF one will feature a tag mode pulled from Tekken Tag and that all the Tekken characters will maintain their signature moves. But enough talk - check out the screens and embedded trailer below.
