Street Fighter II HD Remix finally hitting European PSN

Super Street Fighter II HD Remix belatedly hitting the European PlayStation Network tomorrow; yours for £11.99/€14.99.

After nearly three months of waiting, European PlayStation 3 owners will finally be able to play Super Street Fighter II HD Remix tomorrow. Capcom has announced that the game will form part of the January 19th PlayStation Store update, and will cost £11.99 in the UK and €14.99 in the rest of Europe.

The game has had a troubled path in making it to European PlayStation 3 consoles. It originally hit the North American PlayStation Network on November 25th, 2008, alongside the worldwide release on Xbox Live Arcade a day later. When we last probed Capcom UK about the issue in January, a representative told us that there was "no official word, but [we're] trying to work with Sony."

It seems that those issues have now been resolved, albeit just one day before the launch of Street Fighter IV. If you still want to get your retro Street Fighting on, then SSFIIHDR will be bringing its crisp 1080p graphics to the PS3 in Europe beginning tomorrow. You can read more about it in GameSpot's full reviews for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Downloaded last night. It is fantastic. Truly the definitive version of SF2. KroNfs is right though. Where are games like the REs on PSN? I wish it was like the Wii VC where you get classic games released every week. The PS1 library is pitiful at the moment.

if the Capcom themselves don't understand this is not worth it atm since 4 is out then who will? AND WHEN will they put resident evil 1 -2 -3 on PSN network at 5 euro? .. newbies at marketing ..:(

ahha I remember along time ago people on the forums saying this game will probably come out after SF4 as a joke... and it seems to have been true lol.

I'm staring at the PS Store right now and it isn't there! WTF!

I really wanted to get this, but it was only to tide me over till SF4. so there's no point now, Ah well don't matter now, saying that if they reduce the price to a fiver or less I might get it.

It's called an exchange rate. The U.K. doesn't use the Euro like most of the rest of the EU. They refuse to. They still use Pounds.

What's with the price difference between the UK and the rest of Europe? Is it like that with other PSN games?

Getting SFIV Friday so this seems unlikely.

Got it ages ago from HK store and it was dead cheap.

Too damned late, Capcom/SCEE. SFIV is out on Friday, that game only took 3 days to transition across the Atlantic, so why does a downloadable game -- that has no manufacturing or shipping logistics to worry about -- take 3 MONTHS?!

I aren't gonna bother since Street Fighter 4 comes out on Friday.

LATE! Well I suppose it's a good thing they're getting it at all.

What the hell took so long? Well thanks to the delay, Sony may lose out on quite a few sales of this game because a) People will probably have bought this on the 360. b) SF4 is literally just around the corner, next day in fact.

Well I would have got this, but not connected to the internet via PS3..damn USB cable.

This is a disgrace. Shame on Sony and on whoever employs these regional restrictions.

Great i wanted this oh whats that IV is out Friday oh well to bad for this version! Silly time to release it!

Yea ditto on the 360, an odd time to release it on PSN considering IV is out in a few days. Surely 1 or 2 weeks ago it would have had more of an impact. Download Flower instead :P

Too late, I decided to get it on the 360 instead...

sorry sony, i waited ages and bought the 360 version instead, i intended to buy both if it came out early january but i can't be bothered as my sf4 arrives tomorrow. really releasing it at this time will cannibalize sales of sf4 and vice versa. shame shame

I'm in Australia and already got Street Fighter IV since the 17th from my local store? I'll probably buy this some other time.

Sony you can stick this up your ...! Street Fighter 4 came out in Europe on the 14th of february, how dare you bring this out on an even later date when it should have been available worldwide on the same date, it's the same crap again just like the time Puzzle Fighter HD was delayed for 4 million years, you should be ashamed. The whole european PSN shop is a joke, we get demo's of games when the complete version is are already for sale. I suggest every sane european get his stuff from the USA shop.

Right, this makes me happy I'm a 360 user in Europe...

commanderleon: if you were a bit clever you would download it from the US Psn. Using ps network cards sold on ebay

I am happy its finaly here but its probely too late with sf4, two days away.

As a European, I was so going to get the PS3 version of this (b/c of the better d-pad, naitch) but after having waited for over three weeks I bought the 360 version at last. Way to go Sony, that's how you make money :/ I'll definitely be buying the PS3 version of SFIV, tough. The PS3's d-pad is just sooo much better.

It's a shame that one day before street fighter 4 the ssfhd remix will be on the ps network finally(if you consider my collector's edition will arive today local game store and I'll have it at night)...They said that they delay it because of bugs and that they want to put trophies on the european edition but it doesn't say something like that...I'll download it just because I want to play it and because I was waiting a lot(almost 3 months)...But it'll have to wait after I finish with sf4...It's just a shame...

This is really stupid. Althought I already have both games, the release of SSF2HDR should have come out earlier. Must admit that both games plays totally different. Nevertheless I will be more on the SFIV rather then SSF2HDR -- PSN: MKY_nl

A bit too late, SFIV is coming out already.
