Great.
♥♥♥♥ YOU CAPCOM!!!!!
They will take this game off right?
They can't sell it then.

Seems Capcom no longer wants my money. Thanks for the post Magikarp.

I seriously hope they reconsider. If they don't I'll at least attempt to ask Steam for a refund for any games they refuse to make playable.

If they know GFWL isn't going to be supported anymore there needs to be a solution for games liek this. It's fairly unethical to continue charging consumers for games knowing they won't be playable.

+1 for ^this.

I wouldn't be surprised if the game gets pulled from Steam between now and then

I'm sure Capcom has seen the online usage statistics, and the sad truth is that few people play this game's online multiplayer. How many of you have played the Arcade/Fight Request and met 3 unique people in one sitting? Switching to Steamworks isn't going to cause a resurgence of players. Seeing that the original SF4 is being migrated to Steamworks and not SFxT speaks volumes.

This makes sense from a business standpoint, since changing the whole system from GFWL to Steamworks would take many hours of work, and the simple truth of the matter is that not enough people play this game to justify it.

It is, however, quite disappointing.

We still should be able to play offline I hope, it's not our fault that the netcode is horrible and poorly made and people don't play online because of this. I bought the game on the Christmas promotion and still wasn't able to play it because I need a better videocard. I still want to get one and play this game while I can trough.

^This. There's also the issue of any DLC that was bought through GFWL. What happens to any of it when GFWL is gone?

I also know that SF4 is being migrated to Steamworks, but I'm not going to buy it. I feel like I wasted my investment with this (and many other) Capcom games, why would I want to give them more money?

Doesn't GFWL validate that you have bought it (Capcom used it as DRM), so with the servers gone, you won't be able to play any of their games, correct?

I agree that this and some of the other games like RE5 may not seem like they're worth it from Capcom's perspective. But these games are also major franchises and gamers are like elephants when it comes to remembering when they felt ripped off.

There probably isn't a ton of money to be had from this game moving to Steamworks. Not porting titles from the major franchises is going to hurt those brands across the board on Steam. A large part of what major publishers spend is on marketing their brands and new titles.
We all know that any business exists to make money, but one of the worst things a business can do is to give off the perception they don't care about their fans and customers.

I agree on Ninja Stu, this will have a terrible drawback to Capcom. We should send polite e-mails to them about that, their adress is feedback@capcom.com . I choose this game because of not only the Street Fighter characters and gameplay but because of Tekken too, so even if I recieved Ultra SF IV for "free" at the release date, it wouldn't be the same thing for me. As when I try to open the game I only get a black screen and my mouse makes the loading sign, because of my outdated videocard that I already said. So I don't know if you have to log at GFWL, to even play it offline like other games also availale to Steam. If it's like that we should feel fooled. At least Steam is going strong and stable, so we shouldn't worry about future releases from them.

I know it costs time and money to switch the drm to Steamworks, but if they don't get rid of GFWL they won't make any money for their products. I know plenty of people who never bought anything with GFWL but bought games like Batman and Bioshock 2 when they switched to Steamworks, so I'm sure they will see a spike in sales if they make the switch. At the very least Microsoft should take their time to patch these games to Steamworks since they are the ones responsable for this mess.

Capcom has a great track record of that
