@ lanmanna it plain and boring for you it fun for me and that all that matter. News flash people have different opinions , wow shocker -_-. And yes the fact that i just wanted to play with a bunch friends with out having to a new room everytime is really stupid, considering the fact that Street fighter HD remix and MvC2 had it. Then to pony up 40 more bucks to do just that it really stupid in my opinion , maybe not for you , but it is for me. Thank you.
Capcom expects latest PS3, 360 installment in fighting series to go platinum as game launches in EU just days after US launch; franchise hits new console shipment milestone.
Super Street Fighter IV launched in North America on Tuesday, in Japan Wednesday, and the UK and Europe today. And while it's early days yet, Capcom is confident the game's glowing reviews will make it a best seller along the lines of 2009's Street Fighter IV, which shipped over 2 million copies within a week of its launch. That game helped the Japanese publisher hit nearly $1 billion in annual sales during its last fiscal year.
In preparation, Capcom today announced it has already shipped 1 million units of Super Street Fighter IV to retailers worldwide. The figure puts lifetime shipment figures for console Street Fighter games at 29 million units internationally, since, as of March 31, the series had already shipped 28 million units, according to Capcom. The series started in 1987 with the arcade original and will continue with the arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV, which was just announced for the Japanese market.
Much like Super Street Fighter II, Super Street Fighter IV takes a preexisting game, in this case Street Fighter IV, and remixes it primarily by adding new characters. Super II veterans T. Hawk and Dee Jay make their return to the series and Korean tae kwon do expert Juri appear for the first time. Other familiar faces include Cody, Guy, and Adon from the Street Fighter Alpha series (and Final Fight, in the case of Cody and Guy).
In addition to extra fighters, Capcom's newest double dip will feature new ultracombos for every character, enhanced online play, balancing tweaks, and more. For more on Super Street Fighter IV, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
@Darkside7972 oh you mean those Cartridges that where bigger than my hand and that cost like $200 each, please boy let me give you a hint don't assume nothing you just setting your self up to look stupid. And i really don't give two hoots if you know more than me about fighting games i am just here to voice my opinion , don't like it ignore please some people say it bliss -_-. So why don't you quit while your ahead i am not here to change the mind of you Capcom lemmings, just giving my two cents like I said.
@TrueIori: No, instead of "double-dipping," SNK pumped out dozens of forgettable fighters all throughout the 90's while trying to capture the glory of SF2, then somehow became worse when they were acquired by Playmore. You probably have no idea what I'm talking about though, since I doubt you were out of diapers back then. Judging from your posts, I know a lot more about fighting games than you. Quit while you are behind.
Just arrived this morning. Its bleddy good fun! Yes I suck at it (3 online losses, 2 wins) but still, we should all be playing it!
The fact that all the characters are there from the get go saves me time to do other things such as study for my last exam in two days that will determine whether I get my Bachelors or not. Hahahaha
what sucks is that in the states SSF4 is selling at a lower retail price of around $40 right? over here in Australia its selling for $80, which is about $70US. huh?!
@ TrueIori Game doesn't have a lobby? Have you even PLAYED the game? I would rather take a game without a lobby that is fun and addictive than that crud that was KoF12. It didn't have a story and the fighting was lame and just plain boring.
Slightly unhappy that I bought SFIV at launch and not waited to get SSFIV...... but still I'm very happy Capcom is kicking arse
TvC a couple of months ago, and now SSFIV. Capcom is on a roll with fighting games! Next up, MvC 3, and hopefully a new Darkstalkers! BTW, that has to be the longest "related games" list on the sidebar EVER!
definately the most balanced fighting game i have ever played. it only just beats TVC on the balanced front. game of the year without a doubt
Ive got SF4 and i probally would of got this but capcom made a mistake and told the world about MvsC3 so I'm gonna wait for that cause it's gonna blow SSF4 out of the water. Unless ofc they release the updates as DLC
i don't know if it is just me but seth does not seem half as annoying in ssf4 which is good because that character ruined the original sf4. but yes super street fighter 4 rocks and what rocks even more is the fact i only paid £19.71 for it from asda
@Darkside7972 Me bitter ? never but Say what you will about KOF12 ,at least Snk does not have the history of trying to double dip gamers like Crapcom does and if you don't believe me look to the left of your screen good sir. Really no Lobby mode in Sf4 ? That like a no-brainier for fighting games and now they want me to pony up 40 more bucks for "new modes" ? Yeah capcom can go suck a fat one.
I owned Street Fighter IV (PS3) but, had to sell it. I am VERY happy with Super Street Fighter IV (PS3) and there really is much to be had with all the additional content (new characters, stages, and modes) and all of that for $40.00?! SOLD!
so it's actually a $150 game with all the previous dlc and the new stuff...what a bargain!!! to top off the awesomeness, i just noticed that the bonus contsumes that came with the original collector's edition didn't transfer...that is so badass! love getting scammed out of money!
@Venom_injektion The figure would be about the same. When units are shipped, it's because there was enough pre-orders and demand to warrant making that many. You can bet that units sold are only a few hundred thousand behind. Thats why it makes the news, because regardless it is a feat.
Nice, but I would like to know how many copies SOLD, not just shipped... I mean come on, it's a consumers world out there!
I lost count on how many street figther game there are. And it's silly all the hyped this games creates on most of you. SF4 was just released barely last year and now this one. Come on!!!, be smart. at the end you guys will end up using the original figters (ryu, ken, guile, etc...).
i wanna get this cuz i mean cmon its 40 bucks? thats a steal, and i never had street fighter 4 cuz i assumed they might do something like this... so this game is like perfect for me! but i hope i dont get owned online like i do on street fighter 2 on xbox live XD
They know they should have kept Indestructible as the theme song or something just as good. Super Street Fighter IV is by far the best fighting game i ever played. Big ups to Juri and Dee Jay.
@TrueIori: "Even though it pain me to say it , it most likely to have sold well -_-." Bitter that KoF12 failed in almost every aspect?
tell me how much it sold not how much they shipped. What wrong crapcom don't got the stomach to tell us the number? Even though it pain me to say it , it most likely to have sold well -_-. You can "Color" me surprised if it does not sell at least 1 million.
For those who don't know, super street fighter 4 is way more different from Sf4. One example is that combos and damage has changed and is more balanced. So if you play SF4 and go over to ssf4 don't be surprise that your not winning. The longer you wait to get SSF4 the better for those who purchase SSF4 will get. Don't practice on SF4 its foolish... GO GET SUPER TODAY!
The "surprise" was just 2 extra colors for every character if you had the previous game save data. I'm surprised, someone actually thought it was going to be something BIG (lol).
Who cares how much they shipped? I think an article about the game sales would be better. Too bad i got the first Street fighter IV.....i wont get Super Street Fighter because of that.' Whatever happened to that "surprise" for the people who did buy the first SFIV and then bought SSFIV?
I want this game so bad but currently I cannot afford it... :( This is lame for me, I will have to wait!!!
Another year, another success for Capcom (God bless them). Anyone for Super Street Fighter 4 Turbo? Only time will tell and the fans' demand. "Guess I have to buy it".
I need to get a copy asap...got my gamestop 20 card, so just 20 more bucks. You know, I actually sat in a focus group at Capcom relating to this game and what can be done to make it better, etc. Im glad to see that they listened to us and tweaked the balance, etc. This game is sure fire hit!
crabapple87 Posted Apr 30, 2010 5:23 pm PT "i love this game but i suck hard at it. I have a question, do fighting sticks make fighting games feel somewhat easier?" Good sir, as an excellent mouse + keyboard rocks for FPS, as a superbly-tuned racing wheel owns for driving games, as stock controllers excel in action-adventure games... for Fighting games, an excellent arcade stick or 3-over-3 gamepad instantly and profoundly improves one's experience in the genre. So: yes. You'll play better and enjoy it more by using an interface that is dedicated to the gameplay form. Games have been this way for a long time, letting players personalize their choice of controller on a per game basis--decidedly a reflection of comfort and performance benefits.
