I'll argue until the day I die this set is FAR better than BL 2 Loot Box. How's the exclusive DLC in it selling now for $5 taste?

Stuff like BL 2, BLOPS 2, DoA 5 CE selling out and this one not makes me sad.

It's subjective. I don't care for digital contents, or CDs because they do not look good in my glass display cabinet, hence BL2 loot chest with tons of cool physical contents is far, far more appealing to me.

I would really like to pay top dollar for a well made Ryu statue. But it seems the statue is pretty cheap. The belt is cool since i have many friends in the cosplay circle. But what can I do with dozens of CDs?

If anyone is curious about the content of the soundtracks, I found a handy Google doc with a detailed tracklist of all 11 discs: https://docs.google....dLaEdqVWc&gid=0

Would've preferred the World Warrior-Hyper Fighting versions of the Street Fighter II tracks over the weird SF1 soundtrack... but that one's nice to have as a historical curiosity at least. Anyway I got this back on Black Friday and was especially gratified to have an Original Sound version of Super Turbo and a 2-disc Alpha 3 set. :)

Also, not sure if this has been covered, but the downloadable content for Xbox is given out as separate codes (you type the one voucher code into the Street Fighter website, and it then gives you a list of redeemable XBL codes). So the XBLA games can be individually gifted/resold if you desire. I've heard the PS3 version just gives you everything as one huge download.

Listen to them?

For the first time, yeah, then it will go into the collection. You can't risk damaging the disk every time you want to listen to them by taking it out of the collection/display case. That's provided you want to listen to them consecutively, instead of mixing it up with your other music, either game soundtracks or anime OSTs and BGMs.

So I can see what will happen, one would listen to the CDs once, strip it to itunes and leave it there. The CDs will just go back into the case since you can't really display CDs, therefore, wasted value to display oriented collectors like me. That being said, I will still buy it for $50 or $60.

Does the soundtrack include the songs that were free at some point on the PSN network? They were tracks remixed by Q-bert and some other DJs. There are two that are fucking sick with tons of scratching.

Thanks for posting this. I had a $20 gift card so the SF set ended up being $64 with tax. For me this is a good deal since I don't have SSFIV (I only have the first regular edition) and I don't have SFxTekken so I'm really happy :)

Capcom is just out of touch and this is from someone who defends them and likes their franchises.

Their was no way in hell they were going to sell through 30,000 units at $150 a piece. That will never happen for a "collection".

Selling 30,000 units of a CE is difficult enough for a new release let alone for a compiliation of games that are very old, dated and can be picked up cheaper.

This is an excellent CE for a fan of the series but they should have limited it to 2,000. That and I don't think Capcom is making any new Street Fighter fans and the nostalgia is most likely wearing off on the aging fans.

But here is another example of how they are out of touch:

http://shop.capcom.c...-Chess-Set.html

They were originally selling that chess set for $299.99. It is limited to 5,000 and it's been out about six months and they still have 4,300+ left.

No offense, but that SF chess set is ugly! And at $300? Sorry... As for the Deal of the Day, the SF collection for $80? Not too shabby, but after learning the Ryu statue is a piece of mediocre crap, no thanks.

I don't think the Ryu statue is that bad, it's about the same quality as the Uncharted 3 & Infamous 2 ones. Of course it's not Guild Wars 2, SW: TOR, AC 2/3, Skyrim, or Halo Reach quality, but it's not crap. See the MP 3 statue for an example of crappy.

Does anybody know if the DLC codes are separated or is it all on one?

I already own Third Strike, cross tekken and AE. I do however want the DLC codes for costumes and such, as well as the physical goods, then I can just give/sell the game codes (not very interested in HD remix or alphas)

Help appreciated, thanks!

AFAIK, the PSN code redeems all the content on your account at once. The XBL one gives you a bunch of separate codes, I'm told, but I've never tried it for myself.

If you have a house and display decorations and statues in it, then yes, that's a first world life.

I remember when I first joined, one of the older CAGs says he needed a third :ps3: for his second bedroom TV. Now THAT is first world. When I told him "wow", he gave me the advice "you will get there someday, young man". So I guess I am working towards first world?:D

I think most CAGs have a display cabinet, look at the amount of people (including IAtCG, who, in his words, "is under employed") buying that BestBuy clearance wooden cabinet couple of month back.

Hey man. I had to jump through hoops to get that display cabinet, finally got it home, and almost couldn't finish putting it together because it didn't have any glue or push pins in the box.

lol, well IATCG is technically "self-employed", with all the "trade-ins" he does, and turning around using those trade-in gift cards, then cashing them out for pre-paid visa cards.

Capcom did okay with:
Devil May Cry After the new one came out, they should have changed the name to Dante May Cry. Because it looks like he's about to.
Resident Evil (though after 4 it was not Gears of Evil) Everything after 4, and including the Wii games is not survival horror, it's Call of Duty.
Marvel vs Capcom Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom Super Cashcow Edition
SF Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter 4,Super Street Fighter 4: AE, Super Street Fighter 4 3D, Double Super Street Fighter 4, Omega Super Street Fighter 4, DoubleOmega Super Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter 4 trololololololololo Edition.
Dead Rising Decent.
Breath of Fire Breath of Fire 5 was a sickness that killed the franchise.
Dino Crisis Haven't played it.
Mega Man Megaman Xover, SF vs MM.
Phoenix Wright Couple of them weren't localized.

I still give them a shot with new releases.


There. That's Crapcom in a nutshell. How can anyone give them a shot?
