Gill and Dipswitches - DLC on the Xbox 360?

#1 Edited by Immuniity (241 posts) -

Hey guys, i've only half been following this game but i was a bit shocked today to find that the Xbox 360 version users had to pay for access to the advertised dipswitches and to a less important extent, Gill.

Is this the same case as in the PS3 version? I watched a few videos and i guess i missed over the fact that there would be DLC for one of their more interesting features. I'm a bit bummed, lucky its cheap.

Heres a link as a source:

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-AU/Product/Street-Fighter-III-Online-Edition/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d80258410b16

UPDATE: From EventsHub - Capcom announced some DLC details today, stating that eager players can immediately unlock Gill, the end boss, or dip switch functionality for 99 cents or 80 Microsoft Points each as an alternate to beating arcade mode with all characters.

So i guess its not really a big deal at all!

well I guess it's not common knowledge lol.  
 
In an arcade game dipswitches are used to tweak games, for example change the way you throw from lp+lk to forward HP. SF3 3rd strike has dozens if not hundreds of switches.

@GetEveryone: I just learned this myself recently, didn't know what a dipswitch was until I kept reading about SF3:OE news lol! 
 
Dipswitch is basically options for you to change how the game is played, not in graphics though but more on mechanics.  SF3:OE has these dipswitches so you can actually tweak and make changes to the mechanics of the game like turning parrying on or off or changing the timings, etc. which can make SF3 feel like a whole new different game lol! 
 
I haven't fully explored this yet since I got SF3:OE last night, and I'm not sure if the dipswitches can be applied online as well, I think it can.

You CAN unlock Gill by beating arcade with everyone I don't know if you can unlock DipSwitches :<
