Sony: PlayStation Is The "Natural Home" Of Street Fighter
As you know by now, the upcoming Street Fighter V will only be available on PlayStation 4 and PC.
Now, PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara has commented on this fresh exclusive status (as in, no Xbox or Nintendo platforms supported).
As he told IGN, he wasn't involved in forging this deal with Capcom, but he does believe PlayStation is the "natural home" for the Street Fighter series:
"I wasn't involved, so how it came about I can't comment on, but I think it's another fantastic example of how our heritage provides some fantastic opportunities not just to reminisce but to look forward as well.
Obviously it's a classic from earlier PlayStation days, but now it's being reintroduced for the PS4 era. It was a huge hit on PlayStation, so I guess you could say Street Fighter's natural home is on PlayStation. Now, I'm delighted that's going to happen again in this cycle."
We don't have a launch date yet for SFV but it has already sparked quite the controversy. Some believe it really shouldn't have missed other platforms, while others think it isn't the best third-party exclusive Sony could've secured. Eh, you can't satisfy anyone these days.
