As far as cash grabs go, this one isn't awful... especially by capcom standards.

I just don't see who it's supposed to be for though. The type of person who would buy such a thing probably already owns most of the content provided, and IMO the exclusive stuff really isn't worth $150.

Some cool stuff in there though. I'd definitely pick it up at a more reasonable price.

I can also see this as an attempt to try and win back some of the fans that they lost along the way. Honestly, I stepped away between SSFIV and the Arcade edition of the same game. The disc-locked content and such on SFxT was a dissapointment to me as well, and didn't help my opinion.

As such, I technically don't have anything that is in this set. This would be a good opportunity for them to get business back from people like me that felt and acted the same way (on the fence types, not your loud obnoxious types).

Disregarding DLC, which is frivolous for these games, here is the cost-by-cost of everything.

Games
-Street Fighter X Tekken $40
-Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition (with all costume DLC) $30
-Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix $15
-Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition $10

-All episodes of the Street Fighter animated series (DELICIOUS!) Why not stream?
-Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie Why not stream?
Light-up Ryu statue $30
Ryu's belt $15

~$135 without stuff that's going to be uploaded on YouTube anyway (Documentaries & soundtracks). Even so....from that package you have two digital only games that will be worthless if you already own them. Not to mention Street Fighter x Tekken has some serious issues (console breaking glitch still hasn't been patched), so IDK. I would only put $150 if it came with a tournament arcade stick.


If you're going to be discounting the value of the video content because of piracy, why not just zero out the games as well?

It's a decent package for those who are willing to shell out for it.

Seems like a cool set, but my $150 have already gone to Borderlands 2...

Mathematically Correct.

I'd definitely be interested in something like this, ...well, provided it comes in a sturdy box and not in the ultra cheap thin pre-crushed cardboard some manufacturers have been using lately for Limited/Special Editions. Also, am I understanding correctly that even with this $150 special edition, you're still not getting ALL the DLC for games though only costumes and characters? I don't have SxT yet, but I remember hearing something about gems and augmenting abilities?

I agree with the earlier comment regarding the Alpha series.. Seems a damn shame that they couldn't have thrown in a port of Alpha Anthology or something along those lines. I'd have considered biting on this if I could get an arcade perfect port of a SFa game in the set.

I don't think 12 characters priced at $20 would count as a frivolous addition to a fighter. You better jack that price back up to $60. The costumes you can disregard since those are actually frivolous.

I prob get 360 Version Since I already have SSFIV AE and SFXTK on PS3. This is pratically a steal since The games themselves are worth about $125 with no additional DLC

A fightstick is too much to ask for considering the price of it, but a fightpad might be reasonable. A limited edition one only with the collection would have been awesome.

I assume you aren't informed to the situation concerning SFxT but I don't see 12 additional characters for $20 as frivolous. Unless you're referring to another "tournament arcade stick" manufacturer, I'd also like to hear your reason for a $150 accessory to be included in a collection that costs $150.



Wow!! $20 worth of DLC characters already stored on the disc! What a steal!:applause:

A tournament stick would be nice giving it's tall price and the value of SFxT isn't that great giving it's low sales due to the DLC shenanigans that angered consumers. As for the price, after having been personally burnt-out on the cheaper (yet licensed) versions of the SF4 Arcade sticks, it's not like they're made of gold.

However, just because you don't want something in the set doesn't change the fact that it's still there.



If you're looking at it objectively, you have SF4 Arcade, 2 digital games, and SFxTekken as the main meat of the package (with the frivolous costume DLC I might add). We're gonna ballpark that to $100 worth of content, the extra $50 is on a Bluray documentary, DVDs, Shoryuken statue, belt, artbook, and soundtrack.

-I- don't think it's worth an extra $50, but it's not like the world revolve around me and only me. I can't put a price on how much a 25th anniversary set is worth to a devoted fan *shrugs*. It's your money, not mine. I was only pointing out the costs for the stuff that attributes to the high price. A Bluray SF documentary isn't your main motivation for putting down $150, at least I hope not.

If you're going to be discounting the value of the video content because of piracy, why not just zero out the games as well?



....Ok?

I don't think 12 characters priced at $20 would count as a frivolous addition to a fighter. You better jack that price back up to $60. The costumes you can disregard since those are actually frivolous.



In what world can you possibly justify Capcom locking content out of the game, then have the audacity to charge you to access it down the road? They got so much bad rep that at management level they're reworking their policies. http://www.capcom-un...out_on-disc_DLC I mean, you really can't spin this any other way than Capcom acknowledging this issue. They've done this practice in the past, but not to this scale. Incidentally Jill and Shuma aren't part of UMvC3, they're still DLC.

You called characters in a fighter frivolous, I was disagreeing and saying it adds to the overall value of the bundle whether or not you like the practice.

So you're basically just here to troll Capcom fighters? Jeez, just say so instead of beating around the bush.

I actually think the $150 for this is a decent deal if you factor in all the extra DLC. I only own SSF4AE and IIHD on the Digital Collection, so I might be up for this.

super hyper street fighter ultimate fanboy championship edition. wear your ryu belt with pride as you shoryuken down the halls of fame on your segway.

this is the total nerd edition made for people who already have every installment of streetfighter anyway. sorry but capcom never fails to fail when it comes to trying to drain all your bucks.


lol perhaps. but after having played asuras wrath for the past 2 hours i can forgive capcom for its crazyness because they can still pop a gem like this

By looking at the set, one might think Ryu is the only character in any of the games.

Nice set though, Street Fighter and I have some great memories. I remember studying my copies of EGM, saving every quarter I could, and waking up at the crack of dawn to go to the arcade on weekends...

Seems like a pretty pointless collection to me. The main audience for this is people who already own every single one of those games.

I want the other stuff, but I'm not paying $150 for it when I own all the games.

That sounds fair enough, I apologize for the mishap. It's not up to me to value or dismiss that content altogether. I've already said my peace and replied to some folks who didn't like my pricing structure for the content, there's not much else to say.

So you're basically just here to troll Capcom fighters? Jeez, just say so instead of beating around the bush.



Wish I could get paid as much as you to rigorously accuse people of trolling or defend the sanctity of Capcom on an online forum. The only point I was making was that Capcom has a track-record of storing characters on discs, even in revisions. So what they're doing in SFxTekken isn't a surprise and technically it's not DLC. Oh and by the way, try not to be -too- offended by what I think of this. You're an adult and can make decisions for yourself on the value of products, not anonymous users over the internet, so let's not shit thread because you are offended that I'm open about my opinion on Capcom's shaddy anti-consumer practices.

I only wish this collection was more complete in terms of the earlier games in the series. I'd much rather have SF1 through Super Turbo in their original incarnations than a Ryu belt, even if they were offline only. I'm assuming this wouldn't be too much of a stretch as they've all been emulated via the Capcom Classics Collections.

Oh, I'm not offended. But you're really just here to push an agenda and play with fonts sizes - the agenda being that on-disc characters are a bad idea or value or something. Whereas the people who are actually interested in these games will find great value in the bundle's extra characters, regardless of whether they're included on-disc. We've all heard the disc locks arguments before so they're beyond tired. But the bundle actually circumvents those arguments anyway, because it's including what some people feel they shouldn't have to pay extra for. Arguing against it anyway, whether or not it's included, is pointless.

Somewhat relevant to the topic at hand, if not interesting by itself.

In regards to the CE, I'll wait on it. The only item that interests me is the figure, and it doesn't look to be of high quality plastic (vinyl or polyresin as opposed to PVC).

Already own the games on 350, but I really want this. Perhaps I'll get the ps3 version.

Sorry for the noob question but if this dies become available for preorder on amazon do you pay the full amount up front? Never preordered from Amazon. Would be nice if I could just get this at Best Buy or Gamestop.

the Ryu statue looks like a much much much cheaper version of this:

I might jump on this if it has a low production number. Has that been released?

To be fair, that's a movie and a 26-episode series on DVD, and an eleven disc soundtrack. There's a sizable difference between that and "DVDs and a soundtrack." I'd imagine there's $50 retail value in a light-up PVC statue, documentary, movie, 26 episode series, belt, hardbound artbook, and 11 CDs.
