THE BUZZ: Capcom has revealed that it is aware of players using hacked Xbox 360 consoles to played unreleased Street Fighter X Tekken DLC, and is currently working with Microsoft to have those players banned.

Posting on the Capcom-Unity forum, Christian Svensson, the publisher’s senior VP of strategic planning and business development stated, “Yes, we’re seeing news of this. Quite ballsy for folks to be taking hacked Xbox 360s on Live where they are detectable.”

“In any event, we already have opened channels of communication with Microsoft on these issues Friday night. If you can capture screens or video of this in action (as some have already) we’re working on bans for boxes and accounts with Microsoft for haxxors.”

The thread was left open for a while, but was later closed by Capcom with the message: “We’ll catch them ourselves.”

The DLC in question is a new character pack containing 12 fighters that is to be released in the near future.

EGM’s TAKE: When everybody else is being charged 1600 Microsoft Points for the content then why should hackers be allowed it for free? It’s only right that Capcom and Microsoft discover the people partaking in this illegal act and ban them from Xbox Live. There’s no place in gaming for people who do this.

Are you happy that these players are being banned? Leave your thoughts below.
