Capcom denies SF IV infinite combo

Video of El Fuerte is nothing of the sort.

Capcom has rubbished reports of an infinite combo in the arcade version of Street Fighter IV that allows players to batter opponents without any chance for them to respond.

At first glance, a video posted on YouTube on Sunday appears to show one of the new characters, El Fuerte, obliterating Akuma with an unblockable sequence of punches, but Capcom disputes the account.

"In that video El Fuerte does not chain together infinite FP cancels. He chains some together to dizzy the opponent and then repeats a similar combo to win in one round, but that hardly constitutes the use of the term 'infinite'," a spokesperson told Eurogamer.

"Let's wait and see what the Japanese players say about the tiering before we hastily condemn anything. El Fuerte is currently considered the weakest player in the game, and I doubt this ultra-difficult combo will suddenly push him above Blanka and Sagat."
