SFIV: Game-breaking infinite combo found

Game balance destroyed

Street Fighter IV arcade cabinets have barely touched the ground in arcade centres around the world, but a potentially game-wrecking infinite combo has been discovered.

Performed with Al Fuerte, one of the game's new characters, the combo appears to be a series of simple punches - although according to forum-goers it's tougher to perform than it looks.

Infinite combos are defined as combos that a player can perform to completely kill their opponent in one go. They are also frowned upon. A bit like a mate that keeps kicking you in the shins to score a win.

We can only hope Capcom patches this out for the console versions expected out later this month.

Take a look at the combo used to win both rounds in this video.
