Then you realized it wasn't funny because blu-rays are predominantly used to play movies and not games.

My favorite Street Fighter game of all time remains Street Fighter Alpha 2, on the Saturn.


This a million times.

I don't think you understand why that's funny. It has nothing to do with game discs.

That actually does bring up a good question though, will this be the first collector's edition released for 360 that contains bonus material on blu ray? Skyrim and Witcher 2 both still used DVDs in their X360 special editions.

The documentary will make a brake this Collector's set...

That alone means it is probably not worth the price.

At least for the Street Fighter soundtracks are good not great, and the anime's were average at best.

All the content not being on disk ruined this for me.

I love it but not at that price. Maybe I'll bite around $99. I will for sure at $79.

Preordered one, but I really doubt I'll keep it. Not into the statue, and I think they really could have included more SF games at that price.

Unless this item suddenly appears in every retail store, it's going to turn into one of those ridiculously rare collector's item.

If they gave you the SFII Anime series (not the American series) I think this would make a pretty cool collector's set. I know you get the SF II movie but there was like 29 (I think) episode Anime series as well. If that came with it, then it would be I think a cool little set.

It's 26 episodes and the features listing does say it's one of the items included. However, unless they just ported the DVDs right onto the blu-rays, there's no way all of that along with the other crap they had listed would fit on 2 BDs.

On second thought, I bet that's exactly what Capcom would do. Just slap shit together.

The collection is awesome but only 2 games on DISC. Kinda disappointed. Should put all games on DISC & includes all contents on DISC instead download code. I may picked up whenever it drop down $70 or less ;)

Oh didn't see that, they yeah this is pretty cool. Capcom would slap everything together on discs and throw in a shitty menu. I mean really, all they are doing here is repackaging stuff and selling it at a premium with a statue. It's for the die hard Street Fighter market and Capcom knows they can get away with it.

Although I would still bite if I had money to throw away. I been eyeing a copy of SF IV AE, but it's way too expensive for my tastes still. (and I never played SF III, or SF vs Tekken and the SF II Animated movie is of high interest for me).

It's not the anime series, its the terrible US cartoon.

Ordered. Sort of off topic, but they need to do something like this for megaman for his 25th this year also.

^I wonder if that is why they ignored the Alpha games.


I got excited watching the trailer and saw SF Alpha mentioned, then realized it was only the sountrack list.

Guys, the only games on the compilation are ones already released on 360/PS3. Capcom would have to spend money and give a shit if they wanted to include the Alpha games.

I won't get my hopes up, but I hope that isn't true. Too many 'up in the air' details as of now, I'll hold off thinking about pre-ordering until this all gets sorted out.

I really want to get this, and I probably will, but given Capcom's history this won't go out of print or be rare. I think a good price for me to pick it up would be <$100.

The fact that all the DLC and patches are not on-disc is what irritates me the most about this.

I probably won't buy it, as I'm not a big Street Fighter fan, but anyone who doesn't consider $150 for everything included an absolutely amazing deal needs their head examined...

Just to play devil's advocate for a second, who here actually pays MSRP or bothers to buy all the nonsensical DLC Capcom usually puts out? SFxT also has a pretty high chance of obsolescence. If Capcom doesn't release a new Phantasmagorical SFxT next year, that would be highly unusual.

I dont see another one coming next year. If they were to release another it would be shortly after the Vita launches this fall with the 12 new characters unlocked, most likely for $50

So basically, your opinion (however you arrived at it, maybe wishful thinking?) versus countless examples of what Capcom has done in the past?

Like with UMVC3 coming out last fall in the same year as MvC3? Besides, well DUH! its my opinion. I dont work for the company and know what their exact plans are. I dont see why they'd hold off releasing a version with everything till next year when all the DLC will be released by this September. If they are going to come out with a new version, I do think it will come after the Vita this fall.
