Amazon is selling Street Fighter IV Collector's Edition for just $28.

I know that the game is old, and the online community is almost dead because of the newer version Super Street Fighter IV (which is like $15 at a lot of places), but if you like to buy Collector's Editions, this is a great deal.

I just bought a copy!

Wow... very expensive. But I think the 360 version of the game is a little bit better; like most multi-platform games, the framerate and graphics are slighty better on the 360.

BTW this is not sold by amazon it's by a 3rd party seller.

I would have totally been in for the PS3 version.

I think the most valuable of the collector's edition was the PS3 version with Ryu. Those sell insanely high on ebay. Sadly, i had to sell mine awhile back when I was broke :(. Wish i could buy that edition for $28 bucks

I guess I should buy Super Street FIghter IV too... just for my collection.

Man... sometimes I feel bad for buying games and not playing them. Heck, I have like 70 360 games and my Gamerscore is below 5000!

Well... they look nice. Much better than the regular packaging. But in my case, it's mostly OCD.

For example, I can't buy Platinum Hits / Player's Choice / Greatest Hits / Game of the Year Edition... I just can't. I hate the packaging. And I also can't buy regular edition of the games if I know there is a Collector's Edition / Limited Edition...

I know, I'm lame.

It's the same with the Blu-ray movies and the slipcovers. I have hunted slipcovers at retail stores because Amazon has sent me movies without the slipcover.

hahaha! Come on, dude!
Seriously? You think a fighter is going to be better on the 360? And there are many platform games that look and run better on the PS3 (Dead Space, DMC4, Final Fantasy, Tekken 6...), if not, they're pretty much equal.

Majority of tournaments use PS3 platform. That should tell you something. ;)

Just because the PS3 controller is better suited for fighting games (because of the non-functional Xbox d-pad)... and in tournaments, they usually use the regular controller.

But it doesn't matter if you have a fightstick.

And don't get me wrong. I love the PS3, I love the Wii and I love the 360, but let's be realistic: when it comes to multiplatform games, 360 is the favorite choice for most gamers.

I only use the PS3 and Wii for exclusive games, just like lst gen my PS2 was for exclusive games (it has a lot) and my Gamecube was for exclusive games and multi-platform (multiplatform games runs better on the Gamecube than on the PS2... see Resident Evil 4, Viewtiful Joe, Soul Calibur, etc...).

1. 3rd party seller fulfilled by amazon= same as buying from amazon. the 3rd party seller ships their items to amazon warehouse, amazon ships it when it sells. fulfilled by amazon orders are treated the same as amazon orders so theres nothing to worry about.

2. the ryu figure is only 3" tall. its about the same size as the tiny Altair figure in the first assassins creed limited edition. the ryu that comes with crimson viper in a box for the uk version is much bigger and more of a figure than this version's mini-ryu.

3. the ps3 collectors edition is around 40 bucks on ebay...dont get too excited.

4. if you don't understand the allure of steelbook cases, then you probably don't own one. its like the difference between regular trading cards and hologram/foil trading cards.

Cause they're beautiful! I would buy almost anything in a steelbook. Except for jericho, cause that game sucked.

Your #1 is wrong in so many ways. I have had third party sellers fulfilled by Amazon send me used items, the wrong item, Canadian versions, dented items, etc...Yes, Amazon generally takes care of it if there is a problem, but Amazon blindly ships out whatever they are sent by the third party. It's not the same as Amazon in any sense of the word.

Yep, I recently ordered something from a third party seller (fulfilled by Amazon) and they sent me an open, used game. Luckily Amazon handles the claims so it's easy to return. But I'd still rather deal with Amazon directly as I've never run into any issues with them (rather than third-parties, which can be hit or miss.)

SFIV looks better on the 360 and has 1-2 frames less lag (which matches the arcade version). The difference is not game-breaking though, and the biggest US fighting game tournament (EVO) uses PS3 because they are sponsored by Sony.

I like my PS3 more but after actually doing _research_, most multiplatform games are sadly better on the 360.

This is exactly how I feel.

Last generation was mainly PS2 and GC with the GC getting the multi platform versions (although the PS2 had a shitload of great exclusives). This generation for multi platform the 360 versions are almost always superior thus they get the nod, with the Wii and PS3 getting mostly exclusive love.

Although this generation my PS3 usually gets additional usage from it's multimedia capabilities (streaming content via web browser, blu ray).

In regards to SSF4, I have both versions of the game. The 360 version runs quicker (menus, starting up, etc) and online is much much smoother and more reliable meaning more green connections than a flurry of yellow and red connections (although online is still not up to japanese standards lol). The 360 is the better version.

based on my personal experience, my #1 is correct. ive never had any problems with a 3rd party seller fulfilled by amazon -usually hubbagames- and you even said so yourself that amazon customer service will handle any issues, that is a guarantee that cannot be said for normal 3rd party sales. amazon is doing you a favor by covering the 3rd party seller's ass. lay off the haterade and don't be mad at me because you had some bad orders.

That was spooky! You won't believe me but I actually bought Jericho CE two days ago, mostly because the steelbook case.

I got the game from Amazon, new, for $25. They still have copies in stock. Weird thing is, it was supposed to be Gamestop exclusive.

Let's not forget that the PS3 version of the CE comes with the SF anime on BD. The Xbox has a HD version of the anime on DVD disc (don't confuse it with HD-DVD).

Regardless, I've learned my lesson and I'll not get MvsC 3 SE on day one :lol:

To add to this, the 360 version is actually a 360 game disc. Meaning, you can only watch the movie on a 360, and not any ol' DVD player. This was Capcom's way of releasing the anime in HD for the 360.

And my two cents...don't get it. Unless you're a huge fan of the series, this CE is pretty disappointing.

No i have both the 360 one looks better less jaggies. Both look great but the scaling chip in the 360 does an awesome job.

I picked up the 360 CE for $20 on BB clearance over the summer I think. Haven't opened it yet, and I guess I may as well get SSFIV for cheap now.
