Capcom's revival of the Street Fighter franchise appears to be having success on a worldwide scale. The company announced today that Street Fighter IV has crossed the two million mark in worldwide shipments.
will ever top streetfighter 2,it really brought a community feeling to the arcades, i dread to think how much money i put in that arcade cabinet :)
This one is so much better in every way. Old school is fun and all but nothing tops this one.
because that is where it all started for me with Street Fighter but SFIV is my favorite version ever. The game is simply amazing. I ended up getting it for both consoles so I did my part with sales ;)
but you realize a lot of that is due to nostalgia for your youth. SF2 was an amazing experience at the time, but part 4 is better in almost every way. In fact, anytime I hear people wax poetic about games like Alterd Beasts, Mutant league football, Tecmo Bowl, etc I always tell them that it's more to do with your youth than the games.
Disagreeable? I disagree, StreetFighter IV will again set the bar like StreetFighter II did, except higher.
Looks like the PS3 version is outselling the 360 version by at least 2:1. We'll done to the PS3 platform.
yes the PS3 where fighters truly shine...now bring us marvel vs. capcom or power stone and I'll never ask for anythign else from you capcom
Nice conclusion you got there by counting Japanese sales. A region where the Ps3 outnumbers the 360 by 3.3X over.
We'll see my friend we'll see... Just wait and watch...
"Looks like the PS3 version is outselling the 360 version by at least 2:1" In Japan... and those are not good numbers for the PS3, since the PS3 has 3 times the install base of the X360 in Japan and only sells the double of SF4!!!
Most PS3 multiplats get outsold by the x360 version in NA by less than 3:2 in NA even though the x360 is more than 2:1 installbase to the PS3 in NA. Yet when PS3 fans use this fact most x360 fans say they are just excuses. So should PS3 fans really listen to your excuses now?. Funny how things change.
@cmbre well put man, any time a PS3 fan tells the truth- 360 fans put fingers in their ears and scream "SPIN AND EXCUSES!!!!!" i presume SF4 is selling better on PS3 because playing it with the 360 controlller is worthless.. and not everyone wants to shell out for the arcade sticks
No, crmbe that is just plain untruth there. In NA the 360 sells more multiplats than the ps3. You are spreading FUD again. Please show links to verify your assertions. In the meantime, we will rest assured that worldwide, the 360 multiplats are just better overall and, worldwide, the 360 multiplats sell better than the ps3 counterparts. Those are just the facts, friend. Even if you don't like 'em. :) --------------- as for sf4 in japan.... DUH! of course the ps3 version sells more in japan! The ps3 has 3:1 installed there. ... Which makes the 2:1 sf4 sales ratio seem very poor, indeed!
There are those fightpads out in the wild (I got one myself), and some other 3rd party controllers that some may have purchased just for a more useable d-pad. Of course, there are those that prefer those arcade sticks for fighters regardless of which console they play on. You'd be surprised at how many people there are that believe their 360 controller is just fine for themselves, no matter how bad we think the Dpad is, and would rather deal with it than spend money on another console.
Redardless, SF4 360 version charted at number 5. Goes to show you how 360 ain't dead in Japan yet.

o nm... just shipments...
even though its just shipped no problem adding japan sales data to this they are part of the world. what does it matter what sales more there they are still apart of the world. so japan and every other country counts also
Hopefully Capcom will now give us a Street fighter every 2/3 years instead of once every 10 years. I wanna see a new street fighter alpha as well in the style of street fighter IV
and sfiv has been on the market for the last 3 to 4 days and it has sold out valves left 4 dead series and thats been on the market for 2 mnths now and killzone2 will out sell left4 dead as well
Is it really sales or just 'shipped'?
its shipped but the sales numbers must be close or there wouldnt have shipped that much in the first place. anyway it will probably sell out that 2 million in a few weeks anyway. shipped numbers are like sales numbers, they are just delayed by a couple of weeks. like if its 2 million shiped now, then it will probably be 2 million sold like in 2-3 weeks.
The company announced today that Street Fighter IV has crossed the two million mark in worldwide shipments. quote from the article
I know, but everyone is gonna think 'wow, it sold 2m!' When it just means there have been 2m units sent out to stores. Big deal.
A lot of these gamers are going to have problems fighting the boss Seth due to the patch update and the installation. Tell everybody that gets the PS3 version to not download the patch or install the game, because you will experience unbalance issues. When I deleted street fighter on my PS3 to save it again, I notice that there are more easy difficulties like very easy and easiest, which was not on the update at all. There are still some errors from characters such as Zangief who is sometimes overpowered if you face him as the third fighter in arcade mode.
You sir are a noob. Game has been beat in Hardest Diff. already. Fail?
You know the game was too unfairly hard on any mode even on the lowest difficulty which was on easy if you download the update and installation. The Lowest difficulty is suppose to be on very easy and easiest. There are times when Seth is just too impossible to beat when he just keep on throwing you and hitting you with a bunch of insane combos. Just admit that you beat Seth with 1 round on 30 seconds by giving him a few hits until the time runs out. That's how most of you hardcore players beat him so no one is a noob. You got your butt handed to you when you first face Seth. Don't lie saying that you beat him on the first try.
this games is selling like hot cakes. especially on ps3.
cuz PS3 Contral for fighting games FTW
I run a online store focused on the PS3, and the SFIV's demand has been amazing!
i know i got 2 disagrees its just 2 right but whats wrong with including japan in with the rest of the world in sales. japan is a part of the world so yeah. Nice conclusion you got there by counting Japanese sales. A region where the Ps3 outnumbers the 360 by 3.3X over. that statement has 8 agrees and that makes me sick i don't care if ps3 only sold 1 and 360 sold 1million i don't care which systems sell the most. whatever product is out selling another product in whichever region whichever part of the world country whatever in world wide sells that data has a place. if this was united states sales data i would understand why you would be upset and why people are agreeing with you but its not.
Japan actually makes up 20% of the market. Fact. And no I got the 360 version. Signature... "Quote from HHG: StreetFighter 4 fight pads are hot but I heard it plays better on the PS3" Fail
I love this game. Even on the 360 it's great and there are some good players out there. The analog stick isn't that bad of an option on the 360. However, I have the Hori stick so I just use that.
I smell SFIV championship edition with almost every character in the Street Fighter series included. You know Capcom will release another version of SFIV. They almost have too with SFIV being a huge success. Capcom :::please add Guy to the roster.
