There is no game called Street Fighter IV: Ultimate Edition. You must mean either the current version, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, or next year's Ultra Street Fighter IV (which as far as I know won't be shown this year).

I hope Xian brings his A game. He got crushed by the Beast 10-0 not that long ago.
