Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) gamers hoping to get a two player co-op game going with a friend on Xbox Live are in for a rude awakening.
One feature that Capcom includes in SFxT is the ability mix and match online and offline players for scramble battles and pair play battles. The feature can only be done on the PS3 version of the game. The problem is, Capcom advertised the ability to do this on the Xbox 360 manual.
Capcom VP, Christian Svensson, took to Capcom-Unity to apologize for the error and explain why it's impossible to include the option in the Xbox 360 version:
"It will not be patched and apologies for the manual inclusion. Seems it was an oversight. The difference has to do with how Xbox Live differs from how it handles online and offline accounts."The SFxT team also shared their explanation:
"PS3 version: It is possible to mix and match online and offline players for scramble battles and pair play battles. Two local players can play on the same PS3 using 1 PSN ID, and play against other players online.
360 version: It is NOT possible to mix and match online and offline players for scramble battles and pair play battles. So you either have to have all players be offline and local (so 4 players, 1 Xbox) or have all the players be online (4 players, 4 Xboxes)."
