I admit I have not been keeping up with the SFIV news lately, but does anyone know if Akuma is in it as a playable character?

he's still a rumor so far from what i've read. but Fei Long and Dan are confirmed to be exclusive characters for the console versions. :)

I really hope so, and as a side note, never name your kitten Akuma... I did and that is one evil cat. He's about 10 yrs old now and my brother still avoids him when he visits because of the trauma that kitten caused him when he was little.

Capcom seems to think the Game will be ready by November on the consoles. It makes sense to have it out by then instead of Febraury for the Holiday season. I think I am buying both versions as I play a lot of Street Fighter, just waiting for an earlier release date.

Crap. That's a great pre-order bonus, but I'm not sure which version I'm going to get. I have a Virtua Stick High Grade for the PS3 and am in the process of ordering a custom Sanwa joystick for the Xbox360.

haha, well, i read from the SF blog that it will contain art from various artists so i have hope that it's not from the main chara designer only. i plan on getting the game anyways so it's worth it, imo :)

I got the e-mail from GS about this, was going to post before, but looks like no need for it now...

Question, as to the art book, is it one of those puny ass little guide looking art book, i.e. the size of the game case or a full blown art book?

Is this art book GS exclusive? Thinking about getting this from somewhere else. Actually, with e-retailers charging NY taxes, i don't think that matters anymore...

I found out that early adopters preordering from eb/gs.com are usually the ones who get screwed out of the preorder bonuses. Those preordering closer to the release day gets the first dip in the bonus gift than those preordered early.

i don't think that's true for all preorders. i preordered DMC4 wayyyy early and i got the artbooks with no problem. when i preordered Apollo Justice 2 weeks before release, i didn't get the bonus. it really depends on the game.

but now that GS/EB revamped their site, the sitre will probably do a better job with it. i see my bonus items appear a few hours after i place an order with them. it gives me some relief that i will get my bonuses.

Serpentor, no details on the size of the artbook right now. if the MGS4 artbook is the same small one as the DMC4 one, then it's probably a trend. we'll see next week. and it's a GS-exclusive so far from what i've read. it's free after all so it's not a big deal to me.

How come "5Xbox" code is not working for me? I might have to use "Saver" but that only saves me $2.99.

are there any codes saved in your cart? i know that saver and 5XBOX are not stackable. and i know 5XBOX only works for the 360 version. try all caps too, that's i entered the code.
