So Coth_x just shattered my world with this: http://www.capcom-unity.com/ask_capcom/go/thread/view/7371/18682951/Plans_for_a_HDR_PS3_universal_function_patch
Dated just a mere 3 weeks ago, Sven and Jimmy Rey both confirmed that they are content to let HDR languish with no additional patching. For XB360 users this might not be too big of deal (it is to me, as there are quite a few things needed to be done), but for PS3 users, well, you already know how shitty the situation is.
This is ridiculous. Negligent. Abhorrent. The whole purpose of this game was to be a tournament standard. Putting the online issues aside: WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT BUTTON REMAPPING! Seth Killian, community manager at Capcom and Street Fighter enthusiast was RIGHT THERE during Evo with all that shit going on. He even commented on how bad it was with the players having to waste so much time with the button map checking.
What I suggest we do is rally our troops here and take it to that Capcom thread. Maybe they don’t have anything “planned” because we haven’t made enough noise yet.
