Street Fighter 5 - REALLY disappointing, but let's try to salvage it a bit (for single-player warriors)

The truth of that matter was that the fault lay squarely on Microsoft's shoulders.  Before Google or Apple, MS had already dabbled into mobile and consumer devices.   While Redmond had a vision for the future, it is unfortunate that the rest of Microsoft (it's regional offices and whatnot) resisted the consumer centric platform and focus more on corporate sales. 
No demand, they say. 
Too small of the market, they say. 
Not worth the effort to talk to an individual and get …
