Cool beans. Nice to get an SF3 rep so early, and great news about not needing a new stick for the console version.

Oh wow I thought 3s characters would've come last tbh.

Good to hear about the PS3 sticks though, probably won't help Madcatz out lol

I really want to know how this game's economy works. I know Fight Money is earned through playing the game. Is 100,000 a lot? Am I going to have to play a bunch of matches online to afford new characters, without paying for them with real cash?

I've never been an online player when it comes to fighting games.

Wow, one new character per month. I wonder if they're going to be actually new or just "new" like Evil Ryu. Still extremely impressive. I'm just happy with the Alex news, the rest is gravy.

Oof, no spectator mode at launch, getting flashbacks to Marvel Vs Capcom 3. At least the wait shouldn't be too long I guess.

They already announced all the new characters.

I wonder if they'll finally add PS3/PS4 stick support for Mad Catz sticks on PC. It's baffling that SF4 supports them but SF5 doesn't.

Nice news. One char per month is a bit surprising though. What will be the rules regarding DLC chars for official tournaments btw ?
With characters releasing on Tuesdays, there'd be at least 3 days between any character release and any tournament starting on friday. I can't possibly see any major tournament snubbing a new character. It'd be bizzare. More likely that they'd contact Capcom and plan around character releases to a degree.

How credible is this source? Capcom said they were looking at a bimonthly cadence, said they were looking at a PS3 stick solution still and 100000 FM is a fucking lot going by the last beta.

Just want to thank LabZeroGames who indirectly influenced Capcoms hand regards to compatibility with PS3 fight sticks...

Time to still suck in SF then!

where does it say about ps3 sticks?
Por último, también se confirma una opción ya mencionada por Capcom pero de la que no se había vuelto a tener noticias: los Arcade Stick de PlayStation 3 serán compatibles con PlayStation 4.
Good news, for sure. I still have my ps3 hori one that is passable. Never got it to work on my PC though.

Following in the footsteps of KI I see, good job. It's a real refreshing thing to have each month.

So if Alex is first, perhaps this picture really does line up with the release order.



Alex - March
Guile - April
Balrog - May
Ibuki - June
Juri - July
Urien - August

If it's real. Considered myself very hyped! Alex is one of my favorite SF3 character so I'm glad that I'm going to pick him up early. :D

I'm glad that capcom would allow us to use PS3 stick for SFV.

I'll still hold off for another source, but I really hope they do support ps3 sticks. I'd have a way to play for a bit with a chronus device, but that's not ideal.

I remember in early beta it was 50 fight money for a win, 10 for a defeat...
I didn't check FM stuff on later betas so I don't know if they changed it..

That's a lot of fight money. But I got 6000 on the last beta which was 3 days, so I think it won't be too much of a grind.
