Good news everybody! The upgrade to Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available June 3rd on PSN and June 4th on Xbox Live.

Right now you can pre-order this upgrade only on PSN and get an exclusive theme and a free costume set for the new characters.

I'm super excited! I can't wait to get my hands on the newly added mechanics and tweaks to my main characters.

This is what ? a stand alone ? or an upgrade/dlc to which street fighter 4?

This is coming to the PC later right? I may pick it up, haven't played SFIV in years now.

I think I have Super SFIV from PS+ but I'm not sure.

Another rip off by the masters of it.

It's an upgrade and it brings all versions of Super Street Fighter IV up to date.

So if you didn't upgrade to Arcade edition, don't worry. You don't have to spend money on both upgrades, just this new one.

You're a little too excited about them taking this long to get their game right.

How many times do they need to do this?

No I can't because I traded it in towards a kinect free xboxb one ;) I'll do it on steam thank you very much. Old gen games with next gen graphics, the best way to go.

I'm appreciative of their efforts to balance what is already one of the most balanced fighting games in the industry. Most other fighters would be left alone by now, but they continue to support this game and it's community.

It's also a heck of a lot better to get an upgrade to a game you love every two or so years than having to shell out 60 dollars for slight variations on a franchise every single year.

If I remember correctly you don't need Arcade Edition if you already have Super for this.

Also Be glad this is an Update to that game and not a Stand Alone.

whats so special about it? pure copy and paste from Street fight x tekken into street fighter 4?

#19 Posted by farrell2k (5809 posts) -

This series was the shit back in the day. It's just boring now.

@LegatoSkyheart: You can actually get it as a upgrade if you own Super or Arcade Edition next month or get the retail copy in August. Capcom did that with Arcade Edition three years ago.

Super Ultra Mega game milkage # 4......for the 73rd time on the same game that still has 4 in the title somehow......

So much hate lol. For people who never played a game in series IV before, you can get a ridiculous amount of content for just $40, including all the DLC you'd have to pay separately.

Then there's the option for people who stopped playing to pick up the game again with new gameplay mechanics for $15.

Even though I may not upgrade to Ultra myself, the deal is really not as bas as most of you make it out to be. I see it as Capcom trying to expand the franchise to more gamers rather than simply miking it.

The only bad iteration is Arcade edition.

For gamers who never really played a fighting game, this is a great opportunity.

-Balancing readjustments made to the entire roster

-Two new game changing mechanics introduced (Red Focus and delayed wake-up)

-An entirely new set of trials for the entire roster

-Brand new modes and features including online training mode, online fight request, and a mode where you can pit any version of any character against another.

-5 new fighters

Completely redefining an entire game is a hell of a superb deal for only $15.

pretty much this

Capcom and Street Fighter, the original milk it until nothings left. As for those who say bitching is people that don't care about the game this is WHY I stopped caring about SF. I just want to buy the game, which a lot of other fighters do. And why always new editions for upgraded mechanics. can they not just patch it for those of us who do not care about multiple palette sets?

More interesting information: Capcom has released the current change list for the console version of Ultra Street Fighter 4

#31 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (24919 posts) -

@charizard1605: And Those Versions have been Released through out the entire Gen. The only legitimate Complaint people should be giving about Street Fighter IV anymore is that Street Fighter IV to Super Street Fighter IV transition. Everything else Arcade Edition and Now Ultra is just an Update to Super and if you just have Super, If I recall, all you need is Ultra and you got everything Arcade Edition got and more.

3D Edition is just some stupid Marketing ploy to say "It's Street Fighter IV on the 3DS".
