Regarding Darksydephil's recent tournament win

So I noticed Darksydephil recently won a Launch Day Tournament in MvC3.
He made a promo video of some day 1 MvC3 game play which was released on February 12, a few days before the official release:
But didn’t he previously say he was against breaking street dates to get games early and dubbed it “stealing”?
I just think it’s weird he’d suddenly be going against his own words, especially in something as big as this.
Just wondering, how much money do you think he was able to make through these money matches?

1)Who the fuck cares about DSP?
2) Why is there a thread about fighting games in the section where you don’t talk about fighting games?
3) Why is there a video thread out of the video forum?
