I'm not sure how 'exclusive' this will end up being, but the Amazon.com says it is. I haven't seen any such announcement at Gamestop yet.

You can see pictures of the costumes here (via giantbomb.com).

The PS3 version is $35 with gold box discount. As far as I know that's the best deal out there.

For those of us already going to purchase SSF4, might as well get a lil extra bonus. Excellent.

I'll get 15% off with the "hookup" and already have a ton of credit at GS because of the current promo.

wouldn't mind getting free costumes, but it's only a side thing. The PC version has WAY more better costumes

on a side note, didn't capcom say there would be a special reward for people who kept there copies of sf4 when ssf4 came out? did they ever give more details? because it seems like just a lie to make it so people wouldn't trade there copies in (people like me).

I'd be interested in this as well, was going to send in my copy of SFIV to Amazon to take off an extra $12 off this. :(

Nevermind, after thinking about it I don't really see any way that it would matter other than some sort of disc check. Bye bye SFIV. :D

I read costume and for some reason thought Halloween costume. My hopes of shopping at Walmart in a Street Fighter costume were dashed upon reading the page. :(

That thing was useless. It was a totally separate "game" on the ps3 menu that would show you a video of where the treasure was. Then you;d have to remember that for when you got to the treasure once you backed out of that. opened the game, and played it to that point. That is why we have youtube.

I agree Capcom should be putting all alternate costumes in the game. They should be unlockables just like in the good old days. Truly this is the age of companies milking DLC.:cry:

id say you REALLY have to be into a specific character to pay for extra costumes.

I bought one of the packs on the 360 (smaller ones), then wound up never using those costumes, or the characters that much

I ditched my SFIV just after this one was announced, but I left the game data on my PS3 on the off chance that that's what they use to see if you own the original or not. :-P

I'll be using some of the credits that I'm getting for preordering other games from Amazon towards this. Free costumes will just be a bonus. ;)

costumes are a must-buy for any fans that play this game. i honestly can't play any other game over and again like sf4... so seeing alt versions of characters are a good change...

I've never been into the eye-candy DLC like costumes and such... but getting it for free is a nice little bonus.

OP: The bonus is a five-costume pack, one of many. Pre-ordering gets it for you for free, after that it will be available as paid DLC without doubt.
So it isn't really exclusive, but it is a nice bonus if you are going to buy the game anyway.

I'm waiting to see what the secret special is

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Capcom can suck my nuts. Another fucking costume pack? Isn't it enough that you charged for costumes on day one of the games release? Just give the fans the fucking costumes already. Jesus christ... $60 when the game first comes out and $5 costume packs I believe it was... And now $40 for a rerelease with ONE of FIVE costume packs?

If GameStop doesn't get something like this, I'm canceling my preorder there and going to Amazon.
(Only reason I bought it at GameStop was because I had credit. GameStop sucks.)

Original SF4 was like that too. They later released a full costume pack that was actually cheaper than if you bought the packs separately when the game was released.

Still lame.

hopefully they put all the girls in one pack, that's the only one that matters really.

I smell future dlc!!

Seriously I thought SFIV was amazing, but for some reason Capcom thinks this is the SNES and can just release newer titles with Super attached to it and subtitles for future releases. There's too many great games coming out, 40 bucks is a great deal, but seeing that and seeing how titles usually get a pricedrop from amazon sooner or later... I think I'll just wait.

According to Capcom's site blog they call it a:
"pre-order timed-exclusive "Super Classic Costume" pack"
So they'll be out later. I recall seeing on their Japanese blog (translation) that this pack of costumes would be free there until Julyu. US will probably get these as DLC around then too.

I bet they will roll the packs out weekly and not have an all-in-one discounted pack until months later like they did before. Giving one pack out for pre-orders seems like a sneaky way to get people to buy them individually at a higher cost then wait til an all-in-one pack.
